IVR Technologies, Inc. Releases BlackBerry® Smartphone Applications for International Toll Bypass

Share Article

Next-generation VoIP service providers can now capitalize on the power and popularity of the BlackBerry® smartphone to drive additional revenue to their network while providing significant long distance savings to mobile subscribers.

IVR Technologies, Inc., a leading software developer of IP-based enhanced services and real-time billing solutions, announced today that they have released several BlackBerry® Smartphone applications for use with Talking SIP, their fully integrated application, media and billing server. These applications provide the same benefit and seamless integration of IVR's recently released Windows Mobile® 6 smartphone applications but for BlackBerry® powered devices.

The smartphone applications facilitate calling card and callback calls resulting in significant cost savings over typically exorbitant mobile international long distance rates. The Smartphone Calling Card and Callback applications are just some of the many in-demand and innovative services offered by the popular and globally deployed Talking SIP solution that drives revenue and higher margin to service providers' networks.

Today's mobile calling plans offer economical local and domestic calling, while international long distance calling is still prohibitively expensive - especially when roaming. Unfortunately, more cost-effective solutions for mobile users, such as calling cards and fixed-mobile convergence, are cumbersome and protract the calling process. On the other hand, the Smartphone applications provide an extremely simple and straightforward way to make long distance calls while, at the same time, realizing significant cost savings.

BlackBerry® users simply access the Smartphone Calling Card and Callback applications from the Today screen or from the Applications list on their phones. Once loaded, users can simply select the desired destination party directly from the Address Book or by direct dialing the number, to initiate the calling card or callback request. With the calling card application the call is made immediately and the application handles the sending of caller authentication, login and destination information.

With the callback application, after the request has been made, in mere seconds the mobile subscriber's phone will ring and he will be connected to the desired party. By offering applications that are so tightly integrated into the phone, mobile users can now make international long distance calls in the same manner - and with the same quality - as regular calls but at significantly lower cost. In addition, next-generation service providers are able to drive additional revenue and margin to their networks by capturing long distance traffic that is currently being serviced by mobile carriers. The Talking SIP solution can service calling card and callback requests from mobile subscribers located anywhere in the world - thus removing any and all geographic boundaries to the service provider's target market.

"The integration of Talking SIP into the BlackBerry® Smartphone platform offers compelling cost savings for mobile subscribers and tremendous opportunity for the next-generation service provider. The BlackBerry® Smartphone is a favorite amongst corporate users and these new and innovative applications offer an efficient and cost effective means for users to stay in touch with their global contacts. By integrating with two mobile smartphone heavyweights, our customers now have the opportunity to market their services to a wider range of prospective customers," said Barry Sher, Vice-President of Business Development, IVR Technologies, Inc.
