New Delhi, January 14, 2008 :Bharti Airtel, India's leading integrated telecom services provider expanded its Premium International Toll Free services from 80 countries for its enterprise customers in India. These services enable enterprises to offer a convenient and cost effective way to their overseas customers, business partners and employees travelling abroad, to communicate with them, through an international toll free number. The call is free for the calling party as the cost of the call is borne by the "company". The most significant benefit of this service for enterprises is that the cumulative billing is done in Indian rupees, instead of expensive foreign currencies, which is the case when calls are routed through international operators.
Speaking at the launch, David Nishball, President, Enterprise Services, Bharti Airtel, said, “We believe Airtel’s international toll free services can create enhanced business opportunities for our enterprise customers in India by enabling them to offer easy and convenient access to their customers and partners across the globe. With our customers going global, we endeavor to provide them with every possible support to help grow their business. He added, “This offering is in line with Airtel’s commitment to provide its customers with effective need based services.”
Bharti Airtel is offering two types of Premium International Toll Free Services – a) International Inbound Toll Free Service - free phone access for global users to call into India and b) International Outbound Toll Free Service - free phone access for callers in India to call international destinations.
