Hello Chat with Natters and Hello May! We're excited that the International Telecoms Week tradeshow is finally only a few days away. As much as we love chatting with you here, we moreso love getting to speak with you in person! So before we get back to packing our bags, let's do this week in review, shall we? Here's Chat with Nat: See You at ITW!
In Case You Missed It
As we’ve said before, number porting is detailed. If you don’t know what you’re doing, it can also be costly. So this week, we published Talking with Tapolci: Number Porting. This blog post and video should make your future porting submissions easier. And don’t forget—we are offering free porting with no activation fees until May 31st. In case you missed this post, go back and take a look!
International Telecoms Week
ITW is the world’s largest gathering for the global wholesale telecommunications community and it’s next week. We’re excited to be involved in the industry on an international level! If you’ll be in Chicago for this event, be sure to visit us at Booth 1306, May 9-11. Marketing Communications Manager Natalie DeCario and Lead Systems Engineer Tim Linn will be there to show all of you the ins and outs of our BackOffice. We’ll also be looking to partner with new vendors, so be sure to stop by and say hello!
Our referral program is live! Once a customer spends $25, if they refer someone, they get $25 in credit AND the person they referred gets $25, too. So be sure to spread the word!
SMS Hosted Billing
Billing for SMS just became easier! We’ve been working on creating the ability for our customers to use our already existing Hosted Billing Platform to bill for SMS usage and it’s finally up and running. The SMS billing module will include MRCs (Monthly Recurring Costs), incoming and outgoing usage. Our Hosted Billing Platform lets you organize all of your billing needs in one place. Look for it to launch this Monday!
So that you can familiarize yourself with the setup, here is one of our Wiki articles to assist you!
In regards to SMS Forwarding, we'd also like to mention that the feature that allows the recipient to reply back directly to the email and have it be sent back to the sender as a text message, is now available.
Remember the Spring Promotion that was supposed to end at the end of April? Guess what? Due to such an overwhelming popularity, we will be extending our 25¢ Toll-Free, 25¢ Local DID, and 65¢ E911 deals until May 31! Along with all of this, we will also still be offering Free Porting and No Activation Fees until May 31 as well!
Our Porting Support Representative position has been filled, but we still have the
Technical Support Representative position available!
We have a fun, employee-oriented work environment with value-added responsibilities and ownership of tasks. You can also take advantage of paid volunteer and recreational activities, as well as ping pong, office arcade, Free Lunch Fridays, profit sharing, full benefits, and more! If you feel that you meet the requirements, please submit your resume and cover letter to Sharon Kolesar, Human Resources Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spring Volunteer Event
Last week, we mentioned that we'd be making the trip to the Greater Washington County Food Bank to pack boxes of food for seniors. Here are a few pictures as promised! It was hard work, but well worth it! We thank the staff there for all of their help, and especially Heidi Hoffman, Donor Relations Coordinator.
