Orca Digital takes top slot as the UK’s largest supplier of voice short-codes

London, UK: Orca Digital is now the UK’s largest supplier of voice short-codes, eclipsing established mobile and telecoms companies in revenue terms. Voice short-codes enable companies to offer their customers a memorable 5-digit number to call from mobiles.

Voice short-codes are growing fast in the UK – and companies who want to engage with their customers via mobile cannot afford to ignore them. Key advantages include transparent pricing – removing the need for ‘calls from mobile will cost considerably more’ - and the ability to offer either premium rate services or zero-rated services (free to consumers). This is the first time that companies have been able to pay for the cost of calls from mobiles on behalf of their customers – ‘free’ 0800 numbers are typically charged at a high rate from mobiles.

Will Neale, CEO of Orca Digital said “Mobile users are absolutely fed up with not knowing what they are paying for calls to 08 and 09 numbers in the UK – we’re changing all that and helping consumers trust the brands they’re engaging with for the first time. Being the UK’s largest supplier means a lot to us – we focus hard on voice short-codes and it’s an area which is experiencing extremely rapid growth.”
