Wholesale VoIP network operator PointOne said today it is providing a portal for automated selection and automation of direct inward dial (DID) phone numbers to wholesale customers and distributors of its VoIP services.
The new service will eliminate the delays and cost of manual provisioning of DIDs, the company asserts, allowing for faster service integration, as well as support of all PointOne products that require DID assignment.
Service providers will be able to use PointOnes portal to acquire and activate phone numbers as needed. Automated provisioning reduces manual processes that delay service activation and frustrate customers waiting for phone service, PointOne says. Manual DID provisioning is about as efficient as the carrier pigeon in this era of enhanced network services, said Sam Shiffman, executive vice president of PointOne, in a statement. Service providers can expand their customer base[s] more rapidly at reduced cost by taking advantage of our advanced network and automated provisioning.
