Chicago-based voice infrastructure and applications development company Ifbyphone has introduced Phone-Me-Now, a zero configuration click to call application for small and medium sized businesses.
According to the company, the application can be integrated in less then 60 seconds into any website, email or hyperlinked document. When users click on the web link, they are prompted for their telephone number and the Ifbyphone’s systems call the company and the user and conferences the call. Phone-Me-Now works with any telephone number that is registered in the customer’s Ifbyphone account.
The company plans to make this application available free of charge for six months and provide the first 100 minutes per month of usage for free. The free Phone-Me-Now accounts can be updated to additional Ifbyphone packages, which include click to call with custom dialog forms, integrated call routing and reporting, find me, virtual voice mail, virtual receptionist, web configured voice dialogs (Hosted IVR), and backend database integration.
Earlier this month, the company added a Hosted interactive voice response channel on B2B technology website TMCnet, which promotes web integrated voice solutions and includes an overview of Ifbyphone’s products.
In 2006, Google and eBay collaborated to launch ‘click-to-call’ advertising functionality that leverage both Skype and Google Talk in each company’s respective shopping and search platforms.
