Santa Monica, Calif. (PRWEB) October 20, 2014
CallFire, Inc., the cloud-based text and voice platform that helps organizations to market to their target audiences, today announced its registration as a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) with the Federal government. The certification, one of the first of its kind for a software company, allows CallFire to provide high quality telephony to customers nationwide.
“This is new territory for a software company, putting CallFire on par with modern carriers in delivering high quality, on-demand virtualized phone services to businesses across the country,” said Shane Blaser, VP Carrier Operations with CallFire. “With our CLEC certification, we are proud to help advance the industry in terms of regulatory policy and compliance and look forward to participating in the process.”
Previously Blaser and Ron Burr, CallFire’s CEO, worked together on patented processes at NetZero where their innovation garnered the Free ISP the highest quality ratings for service connectivity and reliability while simultaneously maintaining one of the lowest cost structures in the industry. They’ve taken those learnings to a new level at CallFire.
As part of the CLEC process, CallFire has come up with new technologies that enable them to manage costs and quality in an automated fashion and provide the highest quality calls available. Obtaining CLEC status has allowed CallFire to expand access to quality routes and increase capacity for calls while maintaining industry leading call quality. In addition, CLEC status gives CallFire a seat at the table when it comes to formulating regulatory policy and ensuring that compliance keeps pace with technology.
“Our status as a CLEC showcases the maturity and leadership of our organization in the industry, and CallFire’s continued focus on improving our premier telephony platform,” continued Blaser. “Our responsive interface design allows our customers more real time access to telephony services including the ability to quickly and easily purchase numbers, configure an Interactive Voice Response and set forwarding routes via the Web.”
With the license, CallFire will remain competitive with many of the large carriers while also collaborating directly with them. Now, customers in need can purchase only what they need at a more affordable price point.
