¶ BESC: BestNet Communications Launches Phone2Phone Online With Network Twenty-One International, an Amway/Quixtar Distributor Support and Training Organization
TUCSON, Ariz, Jun 20, 2001 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- BestNet Communications Corp.
(OTCBB:BESC) announced the launch of Phone2Phone Online.com, a custom branded
long distance and conference calling service created for Amway/QUIXTAR
distributors (Independent Business Owners)(IBOs) affiliated with Network
Twenty-One International. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Network 21 has affiliated
offices in 20 countries worldwide and is one of the largest Amway/QUIXTAR
distributor training and support organizations in the world.
The Phone2Phone Online Service will be available to all IBOs affiliated with
Network 21 in North America, and IBOs in a number of select markets outside
North America. Using BestNet's patented internet-based long distance and
conference calling technology, this powerful business tool will allow IBOs to
reduce the cost of international long distance, as well as provide interactive
communication with prospective clients and business relationships. As an
example, a "Call Me" function is an icon based image that can be emailed, or
pasted onto any document for worldwide electronic distribution. By clicking on
the "Call Me" icon, the recipient initiates a free call back to the IBO. The
service is comparable to a private 800 service, but without the typical high
cost or geographic restrictions.
The agreement between Network 21 and BestNet Communications Corp. encourages the
use of Phone2Phone Online for internal use by Network 21 and its international
affiliates, as well as expanding distribution to other Amway/QUIXTAR distributor
support and training organizations in the future.
Jim Dornan, founder of Network 21, stated, "We're very excited about our
association with BestNet Communications and the Phone2Phone online service we
jointly developed. This patented product gives unprecedented savings for long
distance and conference calling to all our worldwide IBOs, as well as
cutting-edge communication tools, such as the Call Me service."
Gerry Quinn, president CEO of BestNet Communications, stated, "This is an
important opportunity for our company. The power and global reach of Network 21
is impressive. We believe that our association with Network 21 provides an
opportunity to access other Amway support and training organizations.
Amway/Quixtar has a vast international distribution organization consisting of
millions of IBOs worldwide for whom our product is ideally suited."
