Phoenix Comms launches TransferTo International Airtime top-up on their IDD Calling Cards

Phoenix Communications Pte Ltd (Phoenix Comms), one of the top second tiered IDD operators in Singapore, chooses TransferTo solution, a leading global airtime network, to propose its international airtime top-up solution.

Phoenix prepaid cards customers can now recharge the mobile phone of their relatives back in China, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Turkey, Vietnam, Pakistan and the Philippines.

Available on PhoenixCard and Phoenix CallBack Card, TransferTo's airtime reload is easily done through Phoenix Interactive Voice Response. By calling +65 6494 0088, Phoenix prepaid card users are just a few steps away from recharging their relatives prepaid mobile credit back home : recharge is performed in real-time, the receiver's mobile account is recharged and the credit is available right away. Instant SMS confirmation and notification are automatically sent to the receiver while voice confirmation can be heard by the sender.

With its 1,8 million migrants, Singapore is really in need of airtime remittance. By collaborating with TransferTo, Mr. Chiang Chee Cheong, Phoenix Comms Managing Director, is glad to announce that Phoenix Comms is the first Singaporean company to provide the perfect solution for giving out airtime top-up as a gift for birthdays, festivals, celebrations and so on.

"TransferTo is distributed by IDD call companies as an innovative and differentiating service for their ethnic segment. Migrants are high telecom spenders; most of them own a mobile phone", states Eric Barbier, TransferTo Managing Director. "This market has traditionally been overlooked and underserved. In developed countries such as Singapore, our partners can now rely on TransferTo's solid expertise to finally address the migrant markets."

To help raise awareness, educate end-users and ease the adoption of international airtime top-up, Phoenix Comms has created detailed marketing materials available in all their calling cards distributors in Singapore.

TransferTo will attend GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain from 16-19 February 2009.
