Adds Value to White Label Hosted VoIP Applications; Voxbone's API Automates Ordering, Configuration of DID Numbers
Boston - Nov. 14, 2006 - Voxbone, a leading provider of international VoIP origination services to carriers, ITSPs, calling card operators, call centers and other businesses, today announced that VozTelecom has selected it as its supplier of worldwide direct inbound dial (DID) numbers.
VozTelecom is using Voxbone's cost-effective local VoIP dialing to add value to its white label hosted VoIP applications marketed to telecom company customers. DID numbers provide a local-dialing solution that eliminates long-distance charges between businesses in one country and their clients and sales staff in others.
In addition, Voxbone said that its robust Application Program Interface (API) enables VozTelecom to fully integrate the ordering of Voxbone virtual numbers within its real-time provisioning applications, making the ordering and billing transparent to customers.
For example, using this VoIP solution, an operator could provide local phone numbers to its customers for their international sales staff, partners or family members in any of almost 50 countries. Telecom customers simply go to the website of their telecom provider (in this case, hosted by VozTelecom), select the country and order the local numbers they want to attach to their VoIP line.
"VozTelecom is in a competitive and ever-changing market place," said Rodrigue Ullens, co-founder of Voxbone. "Providing innovative value-added services like DID numbers is a great way to differentiate its services. We are proud to have worked with VozTelecom to seamlessly integrate our products with its service delivery platform and ASP ordering and billing system and look forward to working with it in the future."
The Voxbone API enables VozTelecom to integrate the ordering and set up of the local numbers with the other telecom solutions it offers. End users are unaware of the backend at work. All they know is that they requested and received a flat-rate local calling number and then receive monthly charges on their bills.
"It's crucial that Voxbone's API helps automate both the DID service and billing," said Xavier Casajoana, VozTelecom CEO and co-founder. "Both have to be completely automated for a white label hosted telephony service to work. Moreover, Voxbone allows us to create additional value for our telecom clients in terms of the features and services we offer. Our clients, in turn, can add value by offering their customers additional service like local dialing in-bound numbers. In addition, Voxbone has enabled us to dramatically reduce our network operational costs and management. It means we are adding value today with Voxbone and positioning VozTelecom as a serious, global, future-ready player."
VozTelecom's hosted VoIP service allows telecom providers to offer cost-effective IP Telephony services, call management features and local in-bound telephone numbers to residential and SME customers. Under the ASP model, telecom customers sign up for services on Web pages hosted by VozTelecom. The Web pages carry the branding of the customer's telecom provider. VozTelecom's automated provisioning configures the user terminal and hosted prepaid and billing system, and runs all invoicing using telecom company branding information.
