RIPTec announced today a new service called Tizyo, which has been developed to allow users to continue making personal calls via their SIM card and work-related calls via the secondary service. The system distinguishes between personal and business contacts making calls across the correct network using the right number. The reason; instead of carrying two phones or even a phone with two SIMs, this application does it for you. The end result gives the benefits of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to any type of user!

The service allows you to have different profiles on your one mobile phone; your work profile, your dating profile, your personal profile and link phone numbers to each. You can then make and receive calls using your different phone numbers. You can add any phone number to the service or buy a number to use from any city in one of over 55 countries.

When downloading, use promo code pr247 for one month’s free call plan with 100 minutes to major global destinations and a £1 free credit for all other destinations. In addition, you’ll get a voucher to use against the purchase of a phone number. Once the 100 minutes are up, you can choose to join the mobile revolution for good and get exceptional low-cost minutes rates for worldwide destinations.

RIPTec appoints Aston Comunicaciones as Spanish distributor

Distributor targets Spain’s three million small businesses for the new mobile AstonPhone.

London, September 8, 2016: Business communications specialist RIPTec today announces the appointment of Madrid-based Aston Comunicaciones as Spanish distributor of its disruptive communications smartphone app. The distributor will introduce to the market a vanilla version of RIPTec’s core product to be branded AstonPhone.

The way that small businesses communicate is changing and RIPTec’s mobile software is proving a game changer for small businesses around the world. The days when micro businesses had to make deep investments in traditional office telephone systems to communicate with customers and suppliers are disappearing and being replaced by products such as AstonPhone that provide all the features of full blown office PBX systems, but are more flexible and intelligent.

“AstonPhone has the potential to become the preferred business communications system for small and medium businesses in Spain and cost savings will be the driver,” says Iñaki Miquélez de Mendiluce, Aston Comunicaciones’ Director General. “Be it small hotel owners, road warriors, insurance agents … whatever the business, all can use the AstonPhone as a better way to interface with customers and suppliers.”

Mark Trowbridge, RIPTec’s CEO, adds: “Aston Comunicaciones has deep roots in the Spanish telecoms market and the expertise and resources to change the way that national businesses can better communicate and at less cost. We welcome Aston to the growing family of RIPTec international distributors.”

The new AstonPhone allows Android and iOS smartphone owners to use their personal devices for business and personal use. Employees no longer need to carry two phones for business and personal use or use their personal phones when calling customers. Each AstonPhone contains a personal number for private use and the registered office business number and extension to make or receive calls from customers.

AstonPhone provides users many features including voicemail, auto attendant, call transfer, call forwarding and call recording. A further stand-out feature is the ability to make mobile payments such as buying a coffee or petrol.

Existing numbers can also be transferred to AstonPhone quickly and the system is scalable enabling new contacts to be added into the mobile office system with a few clicks.

No capital investment is needed by businesses whatsoever, allowing telecoms budgets to be allocated elsewhere in the business. The AstonPhone can be used outside Spain and connects instantaneously to that country’s GSM network or Wi-Fi zones.
AstonPhone users have a number of highly-competitive post-paid pricing plans for voice and data ranging. A basic AstonPhone license costs 6,99€/month and additional landlines or mobiles 8,99€/month. Calling rates is Spain are 0,1622€/minute to landlines and 0,03120 €/minute to miles. There is no connection charge. After the first minute, calls are charged on a per second basis.

Young App2Chat resellers scoop £50k business prize

Two young Croydon entrepreneurs and App2Chat resellers, have secured a £50,000 prize for being the best young business minds in the region.

Laurence Grant and Robert O'Sullivan beat off dozens of competitors to be crowned the winners of Young Start-Up Talent Croydon 2016.

In what was one of the final events at Fairfield Halls before its closure for redevelopment, Laurence and Robert were announced as winners at a ceremony on July 7.

Laurence said: "We are so thrilled to have been chosen as this year's Croydon winner, this experience has been invaluable and the year head looks very exciting."

The initiative whittled down the applicants to the final four pitches, before a Dragons' Den-style evening of impressing a panel of seven judges, who decided the winner.

Robert and Laurence successfully pitched Shaking Hands Interactive Partnership (SHIP), a platform for Croydon-based small-medium business owners to inform, smarten and grow their businesses.

In the final last month, they faced Kurtis Peck, 17, Serena Evans, 16 and 22-year-old duo Harry Flaherty and Maddie Ellison.

At the winners' ceremony at Fairfield, the applicants and audience heard from last year's winner, Stephanie Kane, and the winner of Kent's Start-Up Talent award, Dean Day.

Fellow speaker and judge Simon Maddox, an accountant at Owadally and King, said: "It's been incredible working with these guys, seeing their enthusiasm and seeing a great idea flourish. Stephanie's story this year has just been amazing and to be part of it is heart-warming."

Fellow judge Mark Burgess, from Natwest, said: "They've all got excellent ideas, I think they all presented perfectly and I'm sure they'll all go on and move on to bigger and greater things in whatever path they choose."

Annabel Fogden of The Croydon Chamber of Commerce added: "It's a really inspiring, creative and supportive process which is great for young people in business."

Landline number on your Mobile

The Biznu service allows traders to place a local landline number on their mobile.

For small local businesses supplying services such as plastering, emergency plumbing, roof repairs, installing satellite dishes, or anything that requires a fast response to telephone enquiries, the last thing needed is a potential customer ringing a business landline and having to leave a message on an answerphone.

Quite simply, the vast majority won’t leave a message. In fact, over 67% of people looking for a local service will hang up when asked to leave a message on an answerphone. Worse, a staggering 84% of 20-29 year olds hang up straight away when they get voicemail. The 50-64 age group are most likely to leave a message, although only 37% of them would bother.

Voicemail is a failing service, most customers feel uncomfortable leaving a message, regardless of their age. They want to talk to a human, not a machine.

“The Biznu app service has many other compelling features like voicemail, auto attendant, call transfer, call forwarding and call recording.”

Market research shows that companies with local landline numbers receive more customer enquiries.  Not only do local calls cost customers less, but their perception is that traders with local landlines as the first point of contact are more trustworthy, and that the business is established.

So, what’s the solution? A Bristol-based company called IG-Consulting might be about to put the final nail in the office answerphone coffin with its new app-based Biznu service for local tradesmen. The app allows traders to place a local landline number on their mobile phones, so customers can call that number at their national call rates.

What’s more, when a trader dials out, they call customers using a business landline from a mobile. Gone are the days of losing customers that call a landline and get asked to leave a message simply because a trader is out on a job. They’ll call a landline on a mobile. Traders have an office telephone system with all the benefits that come with it sitting in their pockets.

The Biznu app service has many other compelling features like voicemail, auto attendant, call transfer, call forwarding and call recording. Existing numbers can also be transferred to Biznu quickly and the system is scalable enabling new contacts to be added into the mobile office system with a few clicks.
