The service allows end-users to operate a toll-free number in an overseas country without having a physical presence in that region and, an ITFS number simply terminates to the user’s existing phone service. Symbio says this means there is no hardware or equipment upgrade requirements.
“In today’s interconnected world, small and medium businesses are looking for solutions that will help them reach international markets – our service for wholesalers is one piece of the puzzle to help them get there,” said Rene Sugo, chief executive of Symbio Networks’ parent company MNF Group.
“In our experience, industries that will particularly benefit from ITFS include airlines and travel agents that need to provide a global presence, and global businesses that require frequent international conferencing.”
Symbio says the extensive coverage offered by the ITFS is enabled by leveraging bilateral international agreements with telecommunications carriers around the world, which are delivered through its sister-company and global voice carrier TNZI, also part of MNF Group.
