Folkestone, Kent, United Kingdom, 2008/04/07 - Selectabase has launched a new website for its 1Check service which allows UK companies to check phone numbers against the Telephone Preference Service before calling.
Selectabase, a leading UK direct marketing company, has launched a new website for its 1Check Telephone Preference Service number checking service, which also features a new trial subscription.
Around two thirds of UK consumers and half of all businesses have registered their phone numbers with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) and Corporate Telephone Preference Service (CTPS).
Consumers can register their home phone number and mobile number with the TPS. Sole traders working from home can also register their telephone number at their residential address. The CTPS register also includes organisations like charities and public bodies, and businesses can register individual extension or department numbers.
If a member of staff makes an unsolicited call to a TPS registered number by mistake, your business will be in breach of the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003. It can be reported to the Information Commissioner and then face legal action or even a £5000 fine.
1check from Selectabase lets subscribers check phone numbers online quickly and easily to see if they registered with the TPS before calling. And unlike other similar services, 1Check lets you check unlimited numbers each month, subject to a fair usage policy.
Due to the growing popularity of 1check, Selectabase has launched the new site which includes a free demo of the application, to show users just how easy and fast it is to check numbers against the TPS register online.
Plus a new one month trial of the service has been launched on the site. For a one off payment of just £15 plus VAT, users can check an unlimited amount of business and consumer phone numbers online against the latest Telephone Preference Service database.
Regular monthly subscriptions are just £10 plus VAT month paid for monthly, or an annual subscription can be purchased for £100 plus VAT.
1Check is aimed at smaller businesses, sales departments, market researchers and small call centres which use the telephone for sales and marketing purposes.
For companies with larger lists Selectabase also provide free Easycheck software. This useful widget plugs into your PC desktop and allows you to check lists against a range of data cleansing criteria, on a pay as you go basis using credits purchased from Selectabase.
