0844 numbers provide a national image and can be an additional and valuable revenue source for many businesses.
(PRWeb UK) February 22, 2010
Telecoms expert Commsready is promoting the use of 0844 numbers by UK businesses to earn revenues whilst receiving calls.
Companies which purchase and advertise numbers beginning 0844 - known as 'revenue sharing' numbers - will earn money for each incoming call that they receive on that number, advises Commsready.
Revenue share numbers help businesses to offset the cost of providing services to incoming callers by giving the host company a share of the call charges. 0844 numbers create profit for companies and can be linked to existing phone numbers to avoid disruption.
These numbers are typically used for ticket hotlines, technical assistance and other popular services.
Traditionally, UK companies used 0870 numbers for contact with their customers.
But last year Ofcom added call charges to 0870 numbers– turning them from profit centres to cost centres overnight. As a result, Commsready is urging all businesses to switch to more profitable 0844 numbers.
Commsready Senior Account Manager Will Burton warned: “There are still many companies using 0870 numbers when they should be using 0844 numbers instead.
“Using 0844 numbers offers a way of reducing the cost of calls for customers against traditional 087 revenue share numbers, while still giving businesses a revenue share.”
He added: “0844 numbers provide a national image and can be an additional and valuable revenue source for many businesses.”
With 0844 numbers from Commsready, companies can receive 1.5p per minute from incoming calls while the cost for customers to call these numbers is 5p per minute.
