How Call 48 Resellers Find Success

Call 48 only achieves success when our resellers do. That’s why we understand and invest in our resellers success. Successful VoIP resellers are able to showcase certain factors which make them relied upon by their customers for their inbound, origination services. Here are a few reasons that separate Call 48 resellers from everyone else.

Call 48 Low Price Structure

No matter what, customers care about their money. When it comes to offering a low cost price for origination services, resellers won’t be able to find lower than what Call 48 offers, which allows resellers to set prices where they can make the most profits while saving their customers money. We allow resellers to offer both pre-paid or pay-as-you-go plans to their customers. Resellers need only to figure out which payment plan works better for them and their customers.

Clear VoIP Quality

While Call 48 resellers are offering the lowest VoIP origination rates possible, we back these carrier services up with our quality and our redundancy for reliability. Call 48 resellers feel confident knowing their telecom service provider has taken the time and resources to invest in a redundant network with extensive coverage. And speaking of coverage…

Complete Coverage

Call 48 blankets North America with over 15,000,000 on net and off net DIDs from more than 13,000 rate centers and has points of presence in multiple locations.

Continued Support

Call 48 resellers do not disappear after a sale is made. Great VoIP origination resellers come with support teams that are there for their customers when they are needed.

While these reasons might seem obvious, resellers with customers looking to make the switch to VoIP for their inbound, origination services see them as the four pillars to making a successful sale.

How Resellers Determine How Many VoIP Lines a Business Needs

Call 48 VoIP resellers are often asked by customers, “How many phone lines do I need?” When hear ‘phone line’ you think of traditional landline phone systems where a line is a physical wire in the wall with it’s own phone number that allows each phone to receive inbound/outbound calls. But with everyone switching to VoIP service, using the internet means you need to think outside the wires when it comes to phone lines.

A ‘phone line’ means many different things depending on the context. In most cases, you’ll be referring to the number of phone numbers your organization needs. The other interpretations refer to details like the number of registrations per user and the number of simultaneous calls per phone number.

So when a customer asks how many phone lines their office needs, the answer depends largely on how the word ‘line’ is actually being used. Here are some examples:

1. Line Means Number of Employees 

Example: We have 10 employees, therefore we need 10 lines.

This scenario is common with those first making the switch from traditional landline to VoIP telecom services. Here lines means the number of ‘users’ or ‘seats’, where each user has a phone, a phone number and a unique extension, with the option of additional features like a voicemail box, call forwarding, and music on hold.

2. Line Means Number of Phones 

Example: We have 10 cubicles, 3 per cubicle, so we need 30 lines.

Some refer to ‘lines’ as the number of physical phones they need. This is common for facilities where phones are allocated per location or room, and not instead of per person. Employees who frequently travel between offices may also have a desk phone at each location. In this case, the number of devices is greater than the number of users.

3. Line Means Number of Simultaneous Inbound/Outbound Calls 

Example: We need ten people to be on the phone at one time.

Sometimes people use ‘lines’ to refer to the number of inbound/outbound calls an organization can take at one time. The maximum amount of simultaneous calls matters very much to call centers, support/sales queues, and other high volume call operations, who tend to view ‘lines’ from a simultaneous calls perspective.

Call 48 VoIP carrier services allows for a high or unlimited number of simultaneous calls per phone number and multiple registrations per user which means you’ll be paying for fewer phone numbers and users. Depending on your call traffic, you may only need one phone number. Contact Call 48 today so we can get you set up with the amount of phone lines you need.

Call 48 Answers FAQs on Local Number Porting

When Call 48 resellers sign up new customers, one of the first things they will need is a phone number. To transition this new customer to VoIP, or from old VoIP to new VoIP, is known as local number porting the number. Let Call 48 answer your LNP questions:

Q: What exactly is Local Number Portability?

LNP is the process of transferring a phone number from one service provider to another whether it is a landline, wireless or IP. Call 48 can even port your toll free numbers. In the the Telecommunications Act of 1996, the Government mandated this ability to allow consumers to keep their phone numbers if they switched telephone providers and remain in the same geographic area. However, the Federal Communications Commission website lists a few situations where porting a number may not be possible. These include:

1) If you are moving to a new geographic area. This would not allow you to keep the same area code.

2) If you are using a rural wireline service provider, as some of these providers may obtain exemptions from the LNP mandate from state authorities.

Q: What exactly is the standard LNP process?

First contact the Call 48 DID team with the 10-digit phone number you are looking to port. A copy of your most recent phone bill will be needed to provide us proof that you or your business owns the phone numbers that you want to port. Make sure the bill clearly lists:

  • The customer or business name
  • The billing / service address
  • The phone number(s) to be ported

If you don’t have a bill don’t worry. You can request a Customer Service Record (CSR) from the provider you are porting the number away from. The FCC also mandates that all telephone service providers must supply a CSR upon request by the customer. This document will list all of the above information. Once all of the paperwork is in, you just have to wait for the LNP process to complete.

Q: How much does LNP cost?

Call 48 charges a nominal one-time fee for porting your number(s) to ourdatabase, and we are one of the lowest around. This fee covers any paperwork that is involved in the local number portability process, as well as our time for retrieving your numbers from your current provider. If you have a large block of numbers to port, contact us for bulk rate pricing.

Q: How Long Does the LNP Process Last?

Porting a local phone number typically takes 2 to 4 weeks, while porting a toll-free number can take 6 to 10 business days.

Do you have more questions about LNP, the process and provisions? Or are you ready to being porting numbers yourself? Contact Call 48 today and start the LNP process now!
