Otherwise referred to as NTS (Number Translation Services) or marketing numbers.
NGN are available from Converse Telecoms with 0800, 0845 and 0870 prefixes and the NGN can be pointed at any existing telephone number or DDI number so that either the existing telephone number or the NGN can be dialled.
With Converse Telecoms intelligent networks an NGN may simply be delivered to a single existing telephone number or it can be routed to different destinations or departments at different times of the day, or at weekends.
Existing BT 0845 numbers can also be taken over by Converse Telecoms at lower rates. If you have offices or stores in different parts of the country calls can be routed to the nearest office automatically based on the originating telephone number.
0845 numbers split the cost of the call between the caller and the company receiving the call with the caller paying the cost of a local call regardless of where they are dialling from.
0800 numbers are free of charge to the caller making them the ultimate marketing or customer service tool as the company receiving the call pays for the cost of the call. If you already have an 0800 number from BT, Converse Telecom can take the number over and substantially reduce the cost of receiving calls.
0870 numbers are free of charge for the company receiving the call with the caller paying BT National call rate regardless of where they are dialling from. If a high number of incoming calls are expected on an 0870 number we can also pay you a rebate for every minute that the 0870 is used for which can generate extra income for your company.
