A UK based cheap international call provider has pledged to help people living in Britain keep in touch with family and friends in Thailand as simmering political tensions continue to grow.

Firstnumber.co.uk Offers Brits An Affordable Way To Keep In Touch With Friends And Family In Thailand As Political Unrest Rumbles On

http://www.firstnumber.co.uk currently offers over 250 access codes that allow consumers to make cheap international calls at a heavily discounted rate; Thailand is just one of the countries serviced by the company – http://www.firstnumber.co.uk/cheap-international-calls/cheap-calls-to/thailand

Following the Foreign Office’s warning that Britons should avoid visiting any part of Thailand given that “violence could break out without warning”, it is thought that many people will be reconsidering their travel plans.

Violence and tension has continued to escalate in the country as anti-government protesters known as Red Shirts clash with security forces amid calls for an election.

Firstnumber.co.uk spokesperson Andy Steele hopes the service will allow individuals based in Britain to keep in touch with loved ones during the continued political uprising.

“Following the Foreign Office’s recommendation that Britons should avoid travelling to Thailand it’s understandable that many people will be concerned about the safety of friends and family who are resident in the country.

“Phoning a far flung location such as Thailand can be a costly business. At Firstnumber however we appreciate that peace of mind is priceless which is why we’re proud to offer affordability with calls to Thai mobiles and landlines priced at just 1 pence a minute from any BT landline.”

It is also hoped that businesses will make use of Firstnumber’s cheap call tariffs as a means to continue trading over the phone when travel to the Thailand is too dangerous.

Firstnumber’s service is also one of the cheapest on the market with more generously discounted calls to Thailand than those advertised by the likes of Rate Buster, Joy Telecom and Pocket Dial UK.

Daisy Confirms North East Presence With Acquisition Site Remaining Open

Daisy Group will now have a permanent base in the North East after confirming its BNS acquisition site, based in Prudhoe, will remain open.

Daisy Confirms North East Presence With Acquisition Site Remaining Open

A leading provider of integrated voice and data services to the small-medium business market, Daisy now adds Northumberland to its business centres in Lancashire, London and the Midlands.

After the acquisition of BNS in February, interim managing director Chris Jagusz, was appointed to ensure business as usual continued in the North East. Following a successful few months and a full review of the business by Daisy, it has been confirmed the BNS site is key to future growth of the Daisy Group with the office remaining operational.

“Before making any decisions about the future of the company and eventual integration we were committed to fully understanding the BNS business,” said Chief Operating Officer Gareth Kirkwood.

“We believe there is a strong business here and we have realised greater synergies than expected, with a cost effective operation in North East.“We have been continually impressed by the quality and enthusiasm of the people at BNS and I am pleased to say that we really do see Prudhoe as being a key part of the Daisy growth story going forward.”

At the time of the acquisition, Daisy’s 29th to date, BNS was recognised by the management team as a well run business.

“With a large base of existing network customers and access to data and IP telephony products, I am convinced that BNS’ product offering will enhance Daisy’s portfolio in its target market of small-medium businesses,” said Kirkwood.

Chris Jagusz, interim MD, added: “As the group anticipates future growth it is important the business has the capabilities in place to support those plans. With the recognised skills within the BNS team and expertise to make more products available to small-medium business customers, it makes absolute sense to retain our presence in the North East.”

DirectDROP Voicemail Delivers Pre-Recorded Voice Messages – Without Ringing The Phone

Today VoAPPs announced the availability of DirectDROP Voicemail, a hosted service that drops pre-recorded messages straight into someone’s voice mailbox – without ringing the phone.

DirectDROP Voicemail Delivers Pre-Recorded Voice Messages - Without Ringing The Phone

Designed for the commercial outbound messaging market, DirectDROP Voicemail delivers pre-recorded voice messages to scores of recipients at the press of a button. DirectDROP works on any network (mobile or landline) and on any service plan (prepaid, postpaid, or monthly subscriptions). It is compatible with both residential landline telephones and with any mobile handset (feature phones, smartphones, iPhone, etc.). Plus, DirectDROP utilizes voicemail so it offers more reach than other commonly used outbound messaging tools like text and email. In fact, almost all US mobile service plans include voicemail and the penetration of voicemail is nearly 34% for residential phones. That means there are over 300 million voice mailboxes in the US, reaching over 98% of US telephone users over 15 years old.

“The universal nature of DirectDROP makes it perfect for getting a company’s message across” says David King, President of VoAPPs. “Whether it’s an appointment reminder, a flight update or a political campaign call, now outbound messaging users can avoid the customer tension created by an ill-timed phone call.” With DirectDROP Voicemail, companies can send pre-recorded updates, reminders and other timely information directly to their customer’s voice mailbox. Since the voice message bypasses the customer and goes straight to voicemail, it doesn’t ring their phone or leave a missed call indicator.

With DirectDROP Voicemail, the recipient gets a message waiting indicator and then, when they check their voicemail, the DirectDROP voicemail is there waiting for them. They can listen to it, replay it, save it, delete it and manage the voice message just like any other voicemail – it just didn’t ring their phone!
