Truphone, a global provider of low cost international mobile calls, today announced the launch of Truphone Business, a BlackBerry application enabling business users to make international phone calls from their devices at fixed line rates, typically saving 50% or more on call charges.
Truphone’s global infrastructure means that these savings are available for calls made from the UK to every destination globally, while never compromising on call quality. Moreover, Truphone Business is entirely invisible to end users who simply dial an international number as usual, without noticing that the call is being connected by Truphone.
Truphone Business works alongside existing mobile operators. Users dial a number as usual and if the number is international, Truphone intercepts the call and connects it to the international destination via the Truphone global platform. Companies only pay for the local rate call to Truphone (which is usually included in their bundled minutes) and the international leg of the call, at fixed line rates.
Truphone Business is quick and easy to provision, being pushed to each device via the BlackBerry server, instantly activating the service on every BlackBerry device. Specifically designed for business use, the service also offers centralised monthly billing with itemised and departmental reporting.
Geraldine Wilson, CEO at Truphone, said: “Hundreds of thousands of consumers are already enjoying the cost savings on international mobile calls that Truphone offers. The launch of Truphone Business follows demand for a business solution from our existing customer base. The proposition is extremely compelling, particularly in this economic climate. Companies are keen to cut costs but find that an increasingly mobile and global workforce need to make international calls from mobile devices as a part of day to day business. Truphone solves that problem by providing international calls from mobiles at fixed line rates.”
