DIDx, Callision Bring A La Carte to Wholesale VoIP
People love choice. Sure, a fixed menu is nice, but there’s nothing like the freedom of an a la carte menu. In wholesale VoIP, there are many choices out there; however, this week the space saw a new partnership poised to apply a la carte to push the possibilities of business VoIP.
Callision, a carrier independent business phone system, announced a global partnership and native software integration with wholesale virtual direct inward dialing marketplace DIDx. The result is a joint offering capable of offering phone numbers in more than 90 countries (providing local presence), and an enterprise grade business phone system at a pocket friendly price.
Also, Callision users need not leave the Callision Web portal, as DIDx becomes the default source for DIDs, putting new numbers just a few clicks away. Users also gain the ability to easily assign numbers; from the conference rooms and IVR, to team members, queues and more.
“In addition to the obvious flexibility benefits, using a service like DIDx means better (and less expensive) access to certain localization scenarios, such as Local CallerID, available from Callision,” said Joseph O'Donnell, the Head of Global Opportunities at Callision Inc. “A dramatic increase in answer rates, achieved by matching CallerID to the region (area code, city, etc.) of the person one is calling is one of the reasons to diversify area code geography. Callision and DIDx make a great suite to deliver those results.”
Customers can benefit from a couple special offices associated with the new partnership. Callision is offering a free plan for startups, as well as a DIDx offering for larger organizations.
“Callision customers will no longer have to deal with a myriad of local phone number providers in order to have access to DIDs of any specific area for their clients and team members. No more waste of time, money and effort. Plus, with localized forwarding powered by Callision and DIDx, no need for an Internet connection to reliably receive calls. This is especially valuable in the rural areas of any nation or the overloaded networks of metropolitan areas. We discussed this during OpenSIPs Summit and ITW conferences in presentations recently,” noted Suzanne Bowen (News - Alert), the VP of DIDX.net.
This recent collaboration creates more than choice, but ease of use as well. And much like peanut butter and jelly go together swimmingly, this newly minted partnership appears poised for a prosperous relationship.
