If you ever make long distance calls or use those annoying calling cards – you understand how troublesome the process and workflow can be. From finding an appropriate calling card to entering a large serial number and then finding out you mis-typed a number and have to do it all again. Those are just some of the hassles being tackled by Toronto based new startup T-Tag Systems.
T-Tags at its heart is a one-touch calling card replacement solution allowing people to connect with their friends, families and business partners abroad at great savings. Think of it as long-distance speed dialing made easy with huge cost savings. Developed by a team of telecom and web development professionals, co-founder Armen Matosyan says T-Tags is “aiming to bring some fresh air into Canadian telecom marketplace by utilizing the advantages of VoIP and web. “
Utilizing a simple call-forwarding model, users of T-Tags simply enter their phone number, the international number whom they wish to connect with, give it a name, and then the system creates a “T-Tag” – which is a phone number that looks like a regular local number to use for speed dialing long distance numbers and sharing with friends and family. Armen Matosyan and his team created T-Tags because:
“As people on both sides of telecom: inside as providers and outside as customers, we saw how hard is to make long distance calls nowadays for Canadians. Solutions available on the market are either convenient, but expensive, or cheap but complex to use. So, we’ve created T-Tags that combines ultimate convenience with affordable rates to serve everyone’s long-distance needs.”
For now the startup is focused on serving Canadian’s; however the company expects to expand T-Tag into USA and Europe by the end of this year. And if you signup right now you can get a $2.00 credit to try out T-Tag for free, without having to put down any payments up front, plus if you refer a friend you get a $10.00 credit to your account for each referral, and for every minute you talk to love ones you earn bonus credits – no wonder T-Tags can offer seventy to eighty percent savings compared to the big-market telecommunications providers on long distance calls.
To those in Toronto and attending the National Home Show from March 16 – 25, head over to the T-Tag exhibit and learn more about how long distance may never be the same again.
