TelCentris' VoxOx Service Launches Local and Custom Phone Numbers in U.S. and Canada
Jul 23, 2010 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
TelCentris, a developer of cross-media communication solutions, announced that its VoxOx, a free consumer service that unifies communication channels - voice, video, IM, text, social media, e-mail, fax and file sharing - into a single user interface, now includes the ability to gather virtual phone numbers.
According to TelCentris, the new offering enables consumers to create multiple customized telephone numbers that route to their VoxOx account, and can also be routed to other phones (work, home and mobile). Consumers can select their virtual phone numbers from more than 100 area codes in the U.S. and Canada. They also have the ability to do a "vanity" search for memorable digits and word spellings.
"Those who own a small business, have family living in another state, or would like to have a fun, memorable phone number, can benefit from these new options," said Erik Bratt, VP of marketing at TelCentris. "For example, a small business owner can now add phone numbers in multiple local areas that the business serves. Or, a U.S. resident with family in another state (or Canada) can now add phone numbers in those locations in order to enable family members to dial locally."
VoxOx virtual numbers are being offered in addition to the free phone numbers that every VoxOx user receives upon sign-up. Differentiators of VoxOx virtual numbers include support for inbound SMS and fax.
VoxOx also announced the addition of free global numbers, made possible through an alliance with the iNum initiative. iNum is a special global area code (+883) dedicated to enabling new IP communications services. These global numbers make it easier for friends, family and colleagues overseas to dial VoxOx users from landlines and mobile phones, and other VoIP networks at local rates or free. Once a VoxOx user activates the free iNum number, the person's overseas friends can dial him or her from any phone via one of the local access numbers in 45 countries as a two-stage call. As a result, the VoxOx user pays nothing to receive the international call and the overseas friend only pays for the local call to the access number.
