Phone cards for employees traveling overseas for meetings and work

August 11th, 2008

"My company is sending employees overseas for a meeting.  What ZapTel phone card would be best for them to use to call home?"

ZapTel makes buying and managing phone cards for your employees quick and easy.  A number of our corporate customers like purchasing the True North calling card for their employees who have to travel out of the US for business.  The True North card can be used from over 100 different countries and card balances can easily be maintained through your online account.  For companies who are sending their employees to the US for business, the Call the World card has been a great solution for their calling needs. 

Here are just some of the features that are utilized by companies using both the True North and Call the World phone cards:


Manage Balances Online

Managers can log on to their ZapTel account and view employee card balances on their dashboards.  When balances are low, you can recharge the card at any time with a credit card.


Label Phone Card PINs with Employee Names

You’ll never have to remember which PIN you gave to which employee with our labeling system.  In your account dashboard, you can easily type in the name the employee or any other information you’d like so when you log into your account in the future, you can easily view balances for each person.


Online Call Detail Records

Online call detail records are a great way to make sure that phone cards are being utilized properly.  One company I work with uses the call detail records to make sure their employees are making the proper number of sales calls to meet their department goals.  An example that was given to me was that one of their reps would keep track of their calls on their own, but liked that he could double check his tracking.  Other companies like to include the records with their expensed receipts, kind of like a phone bill.


Use Print-N-Go to Give Workers their PINs

ZapTel’s Print-N-Go feature allows you to print out all the dialing instructions and account details so you can give them to your employees.  This is particularly helpful when you need to send your employees overseas.  You can add the access numbers for any country they will be calling from so they have all their calling details.


Your Invoice is Available Online

One of my former employers was very particular about the receipts we submitted for expense reports.  They wanted a receipt that looked like an invoice with the company’s logo on it.  You can print up a receipt that will meet your company’s needs by logging on to your account and clicking on the Order History tab.  Just click on the order you need the receipt for and print.


Specialized Customer Support

Businesses will have a direct contact with a ZapTel Customer Service Representative that will be available to assist you with your purchase or offer support if any problems occur. 


If you have a special business request or would like to purchase phone cards for your business, please contact us at  We’ll do our best to provide you with a service that fits your company’s communication needs.
