Swedish start-up Sonetel has taken the world by storm with its globally marketed telephony service. Sonetel’s services have reached more than 109,000 companies across 233 countries by offering cheap local phone numbers worldwide, which are up to 95 percent cheaper mobile calls internationally.
According to a report, connecting Sonetel’s phone switch to an existing mobile phone company or an IP telephony “allows entrepreneurs to open ‘virtual offices’ anywhere for as little as $0.99 per month. Calls can be answered in any country with a mobile, laptop etc.” Also, calls between internal employees are free worldwide. The global business phone system allows for free voice and video calls on incoming and outgoing calls between the business and its customers.
Sonetel has revolutionized business communications with its cloud-based phone system, and global enterprises are starting to take notice. International business can be complicated, and Sonetel offers a way to get rid of the boundaries, giving access to anyone that may need it—even those in the small business market.
Companies get redirected phone numbers so their rates stay lower. A Pakistani business centered in London can easily reroute the message to a mobile in Pakistan and keep costs down without all the international rates that typically apply to long-distance coverage plans. Getting local numbers for virtually anywhere on the planet where staff or customers are is made easy.
Sonetel knows a thing or two about keeping costs low, and passing on those savings directly to the consumers. Rod Ullens, CEO of Voxbone and strategic partner for Sonetel, merits its 1045-percent revenue growth from 2011 to 2012 to its “unique” and “passionate” business strategy that offers excellent “prices below basic consumer services.”
Marketed primarily at entrepreneurs and global business enthusiasts, Sonetel’s application for the well-traveled opportunist comes at a great time.
