Launched a mere four months ago, the demand for this award-winning app is exceeding all expectations. It is already the #1 downloaded Travel App in 109 of 155 App Store countries and has customers in 5,100 cities, across 205 countries.
Norwood Systems is offering Australian business travellers and consumers who need to call overseas a new option, one that does not compromise quality of service over affordability.
Highly recognised and Australian born entrepreneur, Paul Ostergaard, is the founder of the world’s first global “shared economy” telco platform and has a vision to deliver high-quality, low-cost voice telecommunications services at any time worldwide. The launch of World Phone on Android is a significant milestone in achieving this vision, as there are about 1.4 billion Android users worldwide*.
“We have a truly unique offering in the World Phone app and, at the heart of it, we are able to provide Australian and global users an affordable yet high performing service in now more than 70 countries worldwide” said Mr Ostergaard.
Norwood Systems is disrupting the existing telecommunication market by utilising the sharing economy with its first of its kind World Phone app. By tapping into the sharing economy, World Phone users spend minimal time on unreliable internet connections through using local fixed line infrastructure for the majority of their calls.
World Phone is now available for download in the ‘travel and local’ category on the Google Play app store, and has already seen over one million iOS version downloads and an initial Android download number exceeding 250,000 over a 3-day test market period and global launch window.
“We want to bring low-cost international calling closer for everyone by making the most of global networks that have capacity available for use, which is the same sharing economy concept that we are seeing disrupt other industries. We want to give our customers more choice to connect globally, locally.”
