Numbers that increases the profit of a business

By Samantha Kirk Subscribe to RSS | February 24th 2012 | Views:

The term “tool free” calls mean that when these numbers don’t charge the calling party and instead the call charges are reversed to the called party which has made it ideal for business. The idea of free calling services was introduced in the late 2oth century. A problem with television connection, advice from a psychologist, offers for the telephone network connection, ordering flowers for loved ones and any such incidents, immediately what all of us do is call the toll free numbers for clarifications and guidance. For the Service Switch Point to recognize the particular number as toll free, these numbers usually include the prefix of 1800, 800 or 0800 which immediately prompts it to the Service Control Point and all these numbers are saved in a centralized database popularly known as the 800 service. When a call is made to a toll free number, the call is directed to Service Control point (SCP) from the Service Switch Point (SSP). The SCP then connects the call to the dialed party. All this happens within seconds. There are many websites these days that provides instant toll free numbers and you just need a high speed internet connection like the one offered by Xfinity Internet to setup and attend toll free calls online.

So how can one obtain a toll free number? To get one of the numbers, a person has to contact the particular organization or the responsible organization. These organizations can be a telephone network company or even an individual with a home business. Any organization who wishes to avail the toll free facility has to go through a certification process to avail the features. They also have to check on their availability and reserve the numbers that they wish to circulate with the customers. The toll free system started mainly for the telephone companies which are roughly around the year 1991and now almost all the retail and service sectors have toll free numbers for their customers.

Toll free numbers have become such a huge hit mainly because of the Costumers love to see a toll free number that fixes all their problems for free. A lot of consumers are attracted by the prospect of free calling. It saves a lot of time for the client and the organization. A customer need not go to the service place every time there is a problem with the product. If the problem cannot be fixed through a call, then there companies that send service people to the customer’s door step. The companies need not set up a separate service station or employ separate people when they have the toll free facility. There are vanity toll free numbers that use fancy numbers as marketing phrases. They are easy to memorize and never leaves the customer’s memory. When large corporate and manufacturers provide a toll free number, the profit increases by multiple folds. Toll free numbers are also used as branding tools by big business tycoons and they also increase the credibility is the customer’s eyes.

The rules and regulations are governed mainly by the Federal Communications Commission. The main regulation for the toll free numbers cannot be sold legally for profit and is considered as a public domain. The toll free numbers allocated to the organizations are on the first come, first served basis. The subscribers can get only a particular set of numbers that they intend to use. The organization should show there are users for their product or service before subscribing for the number. Though there are so many rules for legally subscribing for toll free numbers, selling these numbers are common practices nowadays especially the vanity numbers. Toll free numbers are immensely useful for a large organization as the cost for toll free numbers will be nothing. But for small business, toll free numbers may prove to be an extra additional cost.
