Porting.com, a Proxona brand, announced on Monday, August 10th, 2020 that they will be debuting an industry-first end-to-end porting solution for local, toll-free, and international phone numbers. Service providers (SPIDs), RespOrgs, and businesses that use wholesale telecom service providers for phone numbers will all be able to utilize the PortControl Orders service, and either receive porting requests directly or have Orders processed by the Porting.com service bureau.
“We are responding directly to an industry demand to have porting-as-a-service. Having Porting.com handle the complexities involved with porting – whether it be API integrations, fallout handling, or carrier escalations – gives businesses more time to focus on what matters to them most: their core products,” stated Alex Eastwood, Product Owner, when asked to comment on how these changes will impact the industry. “PortControl allows traditional carriers to ditch Excel files and emails for LSRs and gives companies the flexible power to assign tasks, manage notes, and see statuses of orders – all within one interface. Regardless of how many numbers companies are porting each month, we enable a smoother, more efficient porting experience for their customers.”
In addition to the upcoming service bureau offering, Porting.com’s cloud-hosted PortControl SaaS platform has also become one of the first NPAC SOA providers in the U.S. to complete the necessary preparations and certification process for the upcoming update to NPAC version 5.0 offered by iconectiv in October 2020. This certification continues to illuminate Porting.com’s future- and innovation-focused track record. In conjunction with Porting.com’s service bureau and modern, simple to use APIs, customers should see vast improvements in speed and scalability using the PortControl number management SaaS platform.
“Our customers have already noticed a significant reduction in resources, great savings and staff affirmation of simplicity since debuting our PortControl platform earlier this year,” Mark Bilton-Smith, President of Porting.com, commented when approached about the benefits of making the switch to Porting.com. He continued to say, “Being NPAC 5.0 certified in addition to offering a fully outsourced service bureau model in one platform, one bill, and from one support team – just makes sense.”
Porting.com looks forward to adding functionality that is not possible with current porting solutions (or is stuck behind high barriers of entry), including:
“We are providing a new, modern foundation for anyone that ports numbers – whether they are a small company that only ports one or two numbers a month, an over the top VoIP provider who wants control of their local numbers, or a large enterprise SaaS provider that uses telecommunications resources to build products and ports thousands of numbers per month,” stated Alex Eastwood. “Porting.com is the source of truth that businesses trust and rely upon to move numbers from one place to another.”
