Voxbone’s coverage now extends to Saudi Arabia with the launch of our international toll-free service (ITFS) phone numbers in the country. The 0800 numbers enable businesses from outside the Middle Eastern kingdom to establish a local voice presence within the country and are available both for direct use and resale.
They are ideal for contact center, conferencing, and corporate telephony use cases, providing a cost-effective path into the country that doesn’t require a physical presence – ideal given the current global situation.
Because these are ITFS numbers, they provide high-quality international call forwarding to any location over Voxbone’s global network. This lets companies do business in Saudi Arabia without the need to deploy resources locally, instead making the most of existing staff resourcing in other locations.
Saudi Arabia: The Biggest Economy in the Middle East
Launching our toll-free service in Saudi Arabia is another example of our unwavering commitment to providing voice coverage in the world’s most strategic business markets. The Kingdom is the largest economy in the Middle East and the 18th biggest in the world, thanks to its status as the largest global exporter of petroleum.
Given that oil prices remain incredibly modest after reaching historic lows earlier this year – in the wake of Covid-19 induced global lockdown, plummeting demand caused barrel prices to turn temporarily negative – it’s a great time for companies outside of Saudi Arabia to be looking at opportunities for business within the country, whose economy is approximately 63% oil-based.
And due to the direction in which cloud technology is developing, not to mention the impact that Coronavirus has had on travel and events, we expect international business relations to remain incredibly reliant on phone lines and other channels enabling virtual presence.
After all, even by modest estimates such as those of Mordor Intelligence, the global cloud contact center market is projected to grow from $13.67 billion in 2019 to $44.86 billion by 2025 at a compound annual growth rate of 23.11%.
Voxbone Now Covers Global Top 25 Markets by GDP
Adding Saudi Arabia to our network, which covers 93% of the global economy with local voice presence, means our coverage now includes the world’s top 25 countries by GDP, as per World Bank and UN estimates.
So if you’re looking to migrate your toll-free voice traffic away from multiple carriers, Voxbone has you covered in the markets that matter most. And if you’ve not considered consolidating your providers, you should for the following reasons:
- Cut costs and unlock economies of scale through volume discounts by consolidating more traffic onto a single network
- Eensure consistent voice quality and CX across different geographical locations
- Free up operations, finance, and legal resources by consolidating service management, contracts, and invoices
- Guarantee peace of mind by working with a trusted, compliant partner
Strategic Expansion Across the Middle East
Furthermore, for any businesses with interests in the Middle East, it’s important to note we’ve launched a strategic expansion plan in the region this year and are close to launching toll-free coverage in more new markets including Egypt, Jordan, and Qatar.
We’ll have more to announce on these new countries very shortly, so keep your eyes peeled on your inbox, or sign up to our newsletter so you never miss an update.
This new coverage complements our existing offerings in the United Arab Emirates and Middle East-adjacent countries including Turkey and Israel.
And if your interests are wider than just the Middle East, our extensive coverage in Europe, including full PSTN replacement and national operator status across the vast majority of the EU27 and the UK, make us a perfect option for vendor consolidation across the EMEA region.
