Dutch telecommunications company TelServ has acquired operator status in Switzerland. This is a rare event in the telecom business. According to management, this proves TelServ’s strong position in the market. The acquisition of the Swiss interconnection with a “full operator license” means a strategic expansion of services. In the near future, the telecommunications company will focus on obtaining operator status in more countries.
With the acquisition of this interconnection, TelServ is now able to directly supply and sell shared cost numbers, DID numbers, toll free numbers, and premium rate numbers in Switzerland. “This has major advantages,” according to Vincent Peek, CEO of TelServ. “For Swiss numbers, there is no intermediary anymore. Our customers buy directly from the source. This way we can offer the best conditions to our global customers. This means better payouts, direct pairing of the numbers, and direct billing.”
“We are very proud that we can now offer this service to our customers,” adds Marco Dunhof, CCO and co-owner of TelServ. “This is a big investment for us. We see it as an important step for our future.” According to Dunhof, the focus this year was already on contracting operators and resellers worldwide. “We travel with our own business stand to 14 international telecom events to meet new customers. Having this type of service in our portfolio offers many additional prospects to our clients. We will be looking for opportunities to take over other operators this year.”
TelServ is one of the biggest suppliers of telecommunications services such as DIDs, premium rate numbers, shared cost numbers, and toll free numbers (800 numbers) in more than 140 countries. TelServ was nominated last year for a High Growth Award and a Global Carrier Award because of extensive growth and smart campaigns.
