Halloo Launches WebCall, a Free Click-to-Call Service

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA, September 20 — Halloo Communications, a leading provider of hosted communications services, launches its new WebCall service. Halloo WebCall enables users to place and receive calls via the Internet to connect traditional, non-VoIP telephones.

To promote awareness of the new service, Halloo is offering free WebCall Promo accounts with 60 minutes of live talk time per month to new customers located in the US. Registered users can post HTML “Call-Me” buttons into their web sites, email signatures, or social networking profile pages. Callers click on the link to open a popup where they enter their phone number. The Halloo system calls that number, connecting them to the WebCall subscriber.

Halloo business customers have been relying on the Halloo platform to dynamically forward calls for years. With Halloo WebCall, they now have a more direct method of soliciting telephone inquiries from emails, online classified ads, and web pages. Subscribers also enjoy the flexibility of being able to make and receive calls from their personal home or mobile telephone numbers without disclosing those numbers to vendors or customers.

“Halloo is a known innovator. Our web applications have differentiated us from the competition, in any market we’ve pursued,” explained CEO and founder, Jim Li. “WebCall will expose a wider audience to Halloo and spread the use of Internet enhanced communications in personal and business applications.”

All current Halloo customers have Click-to-Call included with their service. For new customers, Halloo is offering a free promotional plan that gives subscribers 60 minutes of live talk time with the new feature. These minutes can be used for inbound or outbound calls. When these minutes are used up during the month, subscribers will still be able to receive voicemail from their callers. For a mere $4.95/month, subscribers can upgrade to the WebCall Live plan with a low per minute rate.
