LONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 30th, 2010 - Freespee continues to expand its position as the standard pay-per-call server platform for the European lead generation industry by announcing its first UK client. 5pm.co.uk will launch phone lead services to capitalize the growing popularity of Scotland’s top online restaurant reservation and review service.

Local and vertical search engines have become an increasingly important source for delivering visitors and prospective customers to local service providers, such as restaurants and health/beauty salons. "We want to be able to tell our advertisers which telephone enquiries have come through our websites, and for that, we want to be equipped with the best call monetisation tool on the market. With Freespee we get a flexible technical platform that will enable us to grow exponentially and a partner who understands our business and has made it work in other markets”, says Ronnie Somerville, CEO of 5pm.co.uk.

"We are extremely happy to be able to announce our first UK client. We are eager to repeat the success from our eight other markets, where more and more lead generation services reach new advertisers by adding a call component to their service", concludes Carl Holmquist, Founder and CEO of Freespee.

Freespee's vision is to open up the performance-based lead generation industry to new customer segments by developing a scalable Pay-Per-Call platform.
