Our Brand – Your Business ™

Whatever your line of business and whether you are already trading or looking to get started, you want a brand name that helps you compete in the marketplace.

SumOne provides you with that opportunity by offering an exclusive license to use the brand, business templates and tools in your primary trading area.

As the brand grows geographically so too does the awareness. Quality control is managed through job satisfaction tracking and use of the intellectual property surrounding the SumOne brand, all of which is handled by your license.

You service your customers as you always have done but trading as SumOne. Any calls / enquiries for your chosen post codes come direct to you and remain your customers.

More to the point®

Fingertip provides national advertisers with a location-based call routing solution using post codes.

Businesses who currently handle calls centrally on behalf of their multi-site locations around the UK can now distribute the call automatically to the local site.

By way of example, estate agents, car dealerships and many franchisors, can continue to advertise their direct response numbers nationally but without the reliance and costs of a call centre.

You determine which post codes serve which location and we build the solution based on this data. Real time call statistics allow you to analyse your responses both at a national and local level. The local sites can be billed directly by us which again removes the call from central costs and admin.

The name behind the numbers®

We all know how quick and easy it is to dial a number you remember.

Instead of searching for a number, your customer calls your easy to remember phone name.

Your phone name could be your name, product or service which is dialled using the letters on your phone. Faster than the internet.

With 90% consumer recognition, the 0800 freephone code tells your customers that you want their business.

Select a word that best describes your business offering, which could be something as generic as 0800 QUALITY or specific as 0800 NESTLE.

QUICK – SIMPLE – DIRECT

Whatever your business there is a phone name for you.
