TelePost Launches Value-Added Communications Services In The UK

At Internet World UK, global communications provider TelePost introduced its suite of value-added services to the UK market.

The services include Web-initiated conference calling, unified messaging, and a telephone response service that lets Web site visitors schedule a return, person-to-person call.

The TelePost services are being offered to Internet Service Providers (ISPs), telecommunications companies and others, so that they in turn can offer their customers a suite of communications which integrates the telephone system with the World Wide Web.

"TelePost differentiates itself by offering easy-to-deploy services, including billing and customer support - not proprietary platforms," said Steve Cherry, chairman and CEO of TelePost.

"By requiring no up-front cost and offering valuable services focused on the SOHO and mobile professional markets, we can help communications service providers broaden and retain their user base while increasing revenue opportunities."

TelePost currently has three services in its value-added suite. They are: TelePost Conference Center, a browser-controlled conference calling service that lets users set up and manage conference calls without operator assistance; TelePost Message Center, which gives users a single mailbox from which to retrieve all their voice mail, faxes and e-mail; and TelePost RingMeNow, a Web site "button" that provides a link to a company's call centre.

TelePost is based in Santa Cruz, California.
