Send Reminders for Free with Phonevite


November 20, 2008

Phonevite, an Internet telephony and broadcasting service, that allows users to send a Phonevite while on the go, using only a cell phone, instantly send pre-recorded messages to up to 25 people.
 
“Phonevite To Go, like Phonevite itself, is the ideal solution for issuing party invitations, notifying a softball team of site or time changes, announcing the birth of a new baby—the possibilities are endless,” said John Nahm, co-founder and CEO of Phonevite, Inc. 

 
“Phonevite is all about saving time and making life easier for individuals and groups—and now, with Phonevite To Go, we’ve matched the appeal of one-to-many calling with the mobility and immediate access of wireless calling,” he continued.
 
Phonevite lets the user record a voice message, that is then sent to all intended recipients’ phones simultaneously and as soon as they pickup, the message will play or be left on their voicemail or an answering machine for those who don’t answer. Security and abuse-prevention features ensure that Phonevite is a convenient and desirable service for users and recipients alike.
 
Phonevite To Go is available for use in the United States and Canada. Users are given a “To Go” number that they assign to a specific phone number distribution list. The “To Go” is saved to the phone’s contact list; whenever the person wishes to issue a message to that group, he or she simply dials the “To Go” number, records the message, confirms it—and the message is immediately delivered to everyone on the list.

He ended by saying, “Phonevite is all about saving time and making life easier for individuals and groups—and now, with Phonevite To Go, we’ve matched the appeal of one-to-many calling with the mobility and immediate access of wireless calling.”
 
Although the service is free for up to 25 people, Phonevite also features a premium plan, designed for churches, schools and other larger community organizations, which will support call lists of up to 2,000 numbers for a price of US $0.05 per successful call.
