UIFN: All countries, one unique number.
“UIFN” means “Universal International Free phone Number”. Through a UIFN number you improve the reachability of your organization abroad: You will be reachable from every required country via one and the same recognizable number, like 00800-callsony or 00800-callnike. This standardization is pleasant for your customer. A UIFN number exists of 8 figures (after 00800). Registration of UIFN numbers falls under the umbrella of the ITU (http://www.itu.int)
A UIFN number starts with “00800” and is therefore the international version of the “0800” number. All of your customers know how to find you on one clear and recognizable number. This way you will be virtually reachable, also in countries where you do not have any physical offices. You have a telephone entry for customers who want to report outages or malfunctions, or who have questions or remarks concerning your product brochures. UIFN numbers are often printed on labels of various consumer products. The minimum number of countries where this service has to be activated is 5 countries. If you want to know in which countries we can activate your UIFN number, don’t hesitate to contact us!
ITFS: In every country one unique number.
“ITFS” means “International Toll Free Service”. In the Netherlands also known as the free 0800-servicenumber. An ITFS number has to be requested separately in every country, because it is a different number per country: every country has its own number with its own unique digit combination. This is a disadvantage compared to a UIFN number, however ITFS numbers can be requested in more countries, and in general ITFS numbers are more recognizable as being a “free of charge” number.
