Save Money with Local Numbers for Satellite Phones
Get a LOCAL Number and Start Saving up to 90% on calls made to your satellite phones!
If you have not had a local phone number assigned to your Satellite Phone you are missing out on DRASTIC SAVINGS.
Whether you use an Iridium, Inmarsat, Thuraya, Globalstar Satellite phone/device, you can choose a Local Phone Number from FIFTY Countries across the globe and have it assigned to your Satellite phone thus significantly reducing your airtime costs for calls going to your device. The call will be treated as a LOCAL call for those calling to your satellite phone.
What’s the Value of Assigning a Local # to your Satellite Phone?
Cost Savings & Ease of Use to start with!
Calling a local number eliminates the hefty international fees and it is much easier and familiar to dial a local number than dialing the extensive numbers and codes typically assigned to Satellite phones. No matter the carrier, no matter the location of the Satellite phone, and no matter the service provider - dialing to that satellite phone/device will connect as if it is a local call. A family member, friend, or associate can maintain more communication without the stress of expenses. Instead of holding the entire conversation from an outbound call from the satellite phone user, the satellite phone user can initiate the communication and have the receiver call him/her back via the local phone number assigned. For large organizations with a high call volume to their associates located or residing in remote areas the Cost Savings can be substantial.

One of the features of SatCollect is the optional PIN codes. PIN codes protect against unwanted calls, or accidental calls. Simply log into your account, configure PINs, and give them to white-listed callers or people authorized to make calls from your account.
How else can SatCollect save me money?
SatCollect is a service that not only simplifies the calling process and reduces costs made to the satellite phone/device, it also serves as an account management portal with advantageous billing features, and advanced management functionality that addresses internal accounting for larger organizations. PIN numbers can be assigned to identify individual callers, business units, divisions, departments creating a valuable control of call volumes and billing allocation. The PIN system is key for circumstances where multiple dialers and recipients share satellite phones.
