New Service Closes Loop on Missed Calls
Jul 24, 2003, 6:24 PM by (staff)
Comverse this week announced "Notify Me". With the new service, when a user tries to call an unavailable wireless phone, (out-of-range or turned off,) the caller can choose to be notified via SMS when the desired party becomes available. The service boosts carrier revenue by converting failed call attempts into successful calls. Notify Me includes privacy options for users to opt out, and is capable of working across different carriers. The product is available immediately for GSM carriers, with a CDMA version to follow in three months.
