EasyTel Announces New No-Charge Web Based Service
EasyTel announces the launch of its thoroughly revamped www.EasyTel.net site.
EasyTel.Net announced today that it has launched a fully revamped web
site, built in part around a new free service it is offering to its
subscribers, their customers, family and friends. The new service -
called "Reach Me Now!" - is a free paging service through which anyone
can reach any EasyTel subscriber from any web browser anywhere in the
world free of any charge.
"We're making paging simpler to use than ever before," said EasyTel president Randal Skala, "even if you don't have a pager."
The www.EasyTel.net web site includes the following description of the "Reach Me Now!" free paging service:
- "First, there is NO CHARGE to you or our subscriber for this service. (That's what "free" means.)
- Every Genie Subscriber has a Genie Number
for their account. This is just like a telephone number, with an area
code, prefix and number. Just enter the Genie Number for the subscriber
you wish to reach, along with the phone number you want that subscriber
to return your call.
- When you click the SEND button,
Genie will immediately send that subscriber a message with your phone
number and the time/date you "paged". That subscriber will get the
message in whatever way they decided to use when they set up their
Genie account. They may get an actual page on a regular pager. They
might get a voice message on their cell phone. Genie might send it to
them as an email message. They might even get ALL THREE, and more!! But
they WILL get it; even if they have their cell-phone off and are out of
pager range - because Genie will hold the message for them until the DO
key feature of the new web site design is a set of user stories
intended to make it easier for visitors to understand how best to use
the wide array of services provided by EasyTel. Called "What's In It
For Me?" the stories are broken down into two groups, one for Business
users and the other for Consumer users.
Skala is quick to point out that the distinction is almost an arbitrary
one. "The line between business and consumer when it comes to phone
communications, Internet, banking and e-commerce is fuzzy at best and
growing fuzzier every day. Anyone is very apt to find stories that
apply to their own life in either category."
EasyTel integrated its own unified communications platform with
InfoUSA's electronic financial services: The Universal Office,
EasyTel's proprietary soft switch, runs on GenieNet, a nation-wide
voice-over-IP network, (GenieNet).
EasyTel now provides local coverage in most US markets. Across the
nation, in over three thousand cities and communities, spanning 115
area codes across 1343 rate centers, in twenty-seven states and
Washington DC, and can be reached by approximately 80% of the
population in the United States as a local call. Through the use of a
touch-tone telephone or the internet. NO OTHER EQUIPMENT IS NECESSARY.
