Ofelos Media offers business and marketing services that help small companies expand and establish an online presence. Services include scanning and electronic archiving of documents, strategies for mobile and online marketing, and guidance on social media. Phone.com gives Ofelos Media the telephony resources to maintain their relationships with global clients, and enables them to operate economically.

While their main office is located in Cyprus, Ofelos Media has another office almost 2,000 miles away in Denmark, with each location using numbers local to those countries. “The features we love most about the [Phone.com] system is its ability to handle global numbers, which gives us a local presence in each country,” says Ofelos Media CEO Marianna Frangos.

At each office, Ofelos Customer Service Specialists also use Communicator, Phone.com’s soft-phone service, along with our iPhone app, so they don’t have to buy and maintain phone equipment. Frangos says that’s good business sense. “Communication is both effective and efficient … we have no upfront investment and no hardware to maintain, so we save time and money!”

As she does for Ofelos Media, Phone.com’s number specialist Jenny Dempsey can help you find the perfect local and global phone numbers for your business.  Marianna Frangos again: “Phone.com’s customer service is excellent! Jenny is always keen to help us with any problems that arise, and help walk us through Phone.com’s many features.”

International Calling with Phone.com

by Jeb Brilliant

Do you conduct business overseas? Maybe to the north in Canada or south in Mexico or Central/South America? Do you call there and not worry about the cost or call and cringe each and every time? I have been known to go through some ridiculous steps to call for cheap or even ask people to call me before I started using Virtual Office. I remember calling an overseas bank once and thinking again and again how much this is going to cost me. Every minute I was on the phone was about half a coffee at Starbucks and not a plain black coffee.

Well if you have Phone.com do you use us for long distance calls? I would assume so but if you don’t you should take a look at our pricing. And if you don’t have Phone.com our pricing makes us even more attractive then you already thought we were.

For example a 1 minute call to any of these countries will cost significantly less using Phone.com’s Virtual Office plan for international calling then using Verizon Small Business plan (which also has an additional monthly fee of $5.95).

Canada is Free on Phone.com but 5¢ on Verizon
Mexico is 11.8¢ on Phone.com but 12¢-16¢ on Verizon
England is Free on Phone.com but 6¢ on Verizon
France is Free on Phone.com but 13¢ on Verizon
Israel is Free on Phone.com but 13¢ on Verizon
Italy is Free on Phone.com but 13¢ on Verizon
Argentina is 3.9¢ on Phone.com but 23¢ on Verizon
Japan is 3.9¢ on Phone.com but 10¢ on Verizon
Brazil is 3¢-4¢ on Phone.com but 21¢ on Verizon
Hong Kong is 3.9¢ on Phone.com but 12¢ on Verizon
China is 3.9¢ on Phone.com but 16¢ on Verizon

Every single comparison shows Phone.com is cheaper then Verizon and using our service is mobile as well if you want. Many people imagine only making international calls from their desk phone but with Phone.com’s Virtual Office plan you can get these exact rates calling from an iPhone, Android or BlackBerry phone. On Android and BlackBerry we offer the Mobile Office app and on the iPhone it’s the Mobile VOIP app. No need to be tied to your desk or office to make international calls, make them from your iPhone at Starbucks, from your Android phone while walking down the street or even your Blackberry at the airport. Phone.com frees you in so many ways.
All the pricing is to land lines.
