Do you do business in Arizona? If you do, you probably need long distance phone service to reach your customers out of state. Depending on the type of business, you have and the number of calls you make, cost for long distance calls out of state, could be prohibitive.
Have you ever compared the cost of a long distance plan verses calling cards? For years, the idea was to sign up for long distance. The company you chose to go with billed you a set amount a month depending on the plan you chose. You had several things to consider when signing up for a plan. Are you just going to call state-to-state or do you also needing some international calling? Do you have PICC fees, and what are the billing increments? How much per call, do you have to pay? How much personal information do you need to give out in order to sign up for what company that services Arizona?
Some businesses charge a usage fee if your calls are under a certain limit per month. Do you want paper billing, or would you prefer digital billing? Are you going to need a credit card to sign up for the service you have chosen? Some companies charge for a toll free number, and a small charge for any additional numbers. Some companies require you to use a certain monthly usage to qualify. With cards, you choose the best one for your business that has good quality lines and you can get that service for as low as a penny for two minutes . All you need is a local dial tone and you can make your call.
You do not need to pay any usage fees. You have no minimum calls. You do not need to worry about any increments. You only use what you need. You do not need a credit card to use the service and you do not need to release any personal information. You chose the card you want from a large selection. Some cards specialize for the country you will be calling if that is what you need. You purchase the card for the amount you want and the cost per call. You then use your local phone to dial an access number and then your number. You can program some phones to do that so you do not have to do it each time.
Some cards provide online data on the calls you have made so you can keep accurate records. When your business makes a lot of calls out of Arizona, whether that is state-to-state or international, you might want to consider the convenience and cost of using cards rather than long distance plans. You can use them wherever you can get a dial tone, and they are much more cost effective.
