Converting Octel Contributor mailbox app to Unity/Unity Connection ?

I have one remaining voicemail application on an old Octel system that needs to be converted to Unity or Unity Connection.  The application is for customers to call into and listen to the status of pending jobs. The customer hears the message for each job, one after each other.  No sign in, passwords or key entry is needed by the customer. Typically there are 1 to 7 messages that the customer can listen to. Each job/message is added by an internal contributor mailbox via several different employees throughout the day.  It is not practical to re-record the previous messages when adding a new message.

Can a similar application be setup in Unity/Unity Connection?
