The Stanacard license will greatly benefit our customers
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 23, 2009
Stanacard, a leader in low-cost international calling, has announced that Localphone, a leading international calling service, has licensed its SmartDial™ technology. This allows telephone users to connect to international telephone numbers by dialing a local number, which reduces the cost of global calling and makes the experience simpler for customers.
In licensing the technology, Localphone can now let customers direct-dial international friends, family and professional contacts by simply connecting to a local number, which intelligently connects the call to its international destination. This avoids the need for PIN codes or access numbers, which are used by standard telephone calling cards and services.
Stanacard continues to pursue legal actions against Rebtel, Jajah and other services which Stanacard believes to be using this technology without a license. Stanacard will seek to stop such operations via court injunction if they continue to infringe.
"The Stanacard license will greatly benefit our customers," said Paul Cusack, CEO for Localphone. "By dialing local numbers from their home or mobile phones and bypassing the phone company's international calling rates, they can save substantially on their long distance calls."
"We are pleased to license our SmartDial™ technology to Localphone," said Anastasia Koroleva, Stanacard CEO. "It will greatly help their business, while at the same time rewarding Stanacard for its innovation and investment."
