Companies Establishing Toll Free To Help Their Own Employees.

We are noticing another growing trend in the use of toll free phone numbers. Large companies and corporations are offering toll free phone numbers for their employees to use if they have any workplace harassment or human resources issues that they want to discuss with someone outside their immediate department in order to avoid retaliation etc. These workplace toll free phone numbers are becoming the norm in the business world.


How Does The SMS/800 Database Work?

The SMS/800 Data Center houses the main database of available toll free 800, 888, 877 and 866 phone numbers for the United States and Canada. The SMS/800 maintains and updates the database and keeps records of the owners of each number. Available numbers on the database are assigned to subscribers on a first-come, first-served, basis. SS/800 keeps records on the status of all 800 numbers, service providers, and call routing options. When an 800 number is disconnected, it goes into what is referred to as the aging process. After several months, it becomes available on the SMS/800 database.
