How does it work?
By relating a star number to the name of your business or type of service offered, it strengthens the corporate identity. For example, call *TAXI (*8294) for Taxi services, *BANK (*2265) for financial services or *FOOD (*3663) for restaurants etc.
An OSSN® call functions, performs and appears identically as a regular number call to both callers and receiver. It may be either dialed by using the name (text – corresponding digits in dialer keypad) or simply dial the number digits.
In Romania (EU) a call made using OSSN® is charged as normal on-network fee. In most cases the fee charges of such a call are practically “0” (either for pre or post-paid users). The service is provided and supported by all major landline and mobile networks.
