Internet 800 Directory and InfoSpace Sign Agreement for Switchboard to Deliver Tollfree Listings

The Internet 800 Directory,, the online leader in the tollfree directory industry, has teamed up with the Search & Directory business of InfoSpace, Inc. to provide toll free listings at Infospace’s online yellow pages site. This new service expands the capability for Switchboard users to locate and talk with companies that do business with tollfree dialing for their products and services. It also provides increased value to online business customers, helping customers to contact them via the web or by free dial-in.

“We are especially pleased to be affiliated with Infospace’s destination site and look forward to bringing more utility to both their customers and users and ours,” said Steven A. Jackson, President of the Internet 800 Directory. “ Since the majority of E-commerce today is still being completed or augmented by phone today, 800, 888, 877 and 866 numbers are important tools for any business.”

With the growth of commerce on the Internet starting to approach its potential, businesses are beginning to realize that their own business may not just be local, just as toll free numbers are no longer viewed as national-only in use. The addition of toll free listings is a natural extension of Switchboard’s comprehensive directory of information on local businesses nationwide.

“This agreement with Internet 800 Directory represents our efforts to continually add new content sources to Switchboard in order to create a better online yellow pages experience for our customers,” said Ron Winter, director of product management for the Switchboard site at Infospace.
