VoIP Innovations Receives RespOrg Certification for Toll-Free Service

voipinnovations_logo.jpgVoIP Innovations recently became certified as a RespOrg, or Responsible Organization. This means VoIP Innovations now has direct access to the Service Management System database, which controls the nations call routing on all toll-free calls. “As one of the nation’s largest VoIP providers, becoming certified as a RespOrg was the next logical step for us,” stated Jason Tapolci, President of VoIP Innovations.

The RespOrg was launched in 1993 as part of the FCC order to institute toll-free number portability. The demand for toll-free has greatly outpaced supply which has led to the creation of additional toll-free area codes that now include 800, 888, 877, 866, 855, 844, 833, and 822. In order for carriers to become a RespOrg, they must go through a certification process. Once certification is approved, there is internal training that must be completed as well as BackOffice integration.
