FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RNK COMMUNICATIONS™ INTRODUCES MYTEMPNUMBER™
Temporary Phone Number Product Will Boost Revenues through Classified and Personal Listings
Dedham, MA (February 8, 2007) RNK Communications (www.rnkcom.com), a global telecommunications, high-tech services and software developer, announced today the launch of its new product, MyTempNumber. MyTempNumber will be introduced to more than 1,500 newspaper professionals attending the New England Press Association (NEPA) 2007 Convention & Trade Show in Boston, MA, on February 9-10, 2007. The MyTempNumber product provides newspapers, online marketplace sites, and even dating sites, the ability to offer a temporary phone number to their customers that can be used for classified and personal listings to eliminate any discomfort associated with publishing their own personal phone numbers.
The latest wholesale offering from RNK’s Innovation division, MyTempNumber is a first-of-its kind service that offers newspapers, online marketplace sites, and other enterprise customers the means to up-sell or bundle MyTempNumber as a feature to differentiate their services from the competition. MyTempNumber provides consumers with the ability to keep their personal numbers private and avoid unwanted calls when the temporary number expires. As a full-service telephone company and hi-tech services provider, RNK Communications is uniquely positioned to provide phone numbers in target exchanges with the necessary account management and administrative tools. The MyTempNumber administration portal is a secure website that ensures a customizable, user-friendly experience for both MyTempNumber administrators and their customers.
“MyTempNumber is an answer for newspapers looking to address the significant drop in circulation and advertising revenue,” said Joy Tessier, Executive V.P. RNK Communications.“ As executives rethink their traditional strategies, this innovative product delivers a new way of increasing revenue as newspapers can better retain existing customers and attract new ones who may otherwise shy away from publishing their personal telephone numbers.”
RNK Communications will offer MyTempNumber in both Basic and Premium Service packages. The Basic plan includes a temporary telephone number in an area convenient to the user, and forwards all calls placed to the temporary number to the user’s personal phone number of choice (e.g., cell, home or office phone). With the Basic plan, users may log-in to a secure website and change their “forward to” number as needed. The Premium plan provides all of the benefits of the Basic plan, with the addition of advanced calling features. Sample features include “Do Not Disturb” (sends incoming calls directly to a customizable voicemail), “Find Me Follow Me” (forwards calls to as many as three phone numbers, in sequence or simultaneously), and “Smart Caller ID” which allows the user to distinguish between an incoming call to his temporary number or his personal phone number.
