Truphone announced today that it is launching a Blackberry application that enables business users to make international phone calls from their devices at fixed line rates.

The company claims that the new Truphone Business app will reduce call charges by at least half.

Geraldine Wilson, CEO of Truphone, said the company’s global infrastructure meant the savings are available for calls made from the UK to every destination globally.

"The launch of Truphone Business follows demand for a business solution from our existing customer base," she said.

"The proposition is extremely compelling, particularly in this economic climate.

"Companies are keen to cut costs but find that an increasingly mobile and global workforce need to make international calls from mobile devices as a part of day-to-day business.
"Truphone solves that problem by providing international calls from mobiles at fixed line rates."

Last month, Truphone unveiled its plans for a single-SIM, multi-country mobile service that will enable users to make calls in supported countries at local rates.

Truphone Business is pushed to each device via the BlackBerry server, instantly activating the service on the handset.

Specifically designed for business use, the service also offers centralised monthly billing with itemised and departmental reporting.

The app is available at two rates; TruStandard and TruSaver, for a monthly subscription of GBP £2.50 and £5.00 respectively.
