As we near the end of another year it is important to thank those people who mean so much to us, our customers and retail partners. This year has certainly been a little different to those past with some unexpected challenges from within, however we are very pleased to say at the end of the day the company has grown into a very solid one and is now firmly placed in our market as a real and serious alternative to our competitors products. When we set out on this journey some years ago we knew the challenge was going to be a difficult one, after all there were two large organisations dominating the market with over 60 phone card brands each, leading to mass confusion for both consumers and retailers on which phone card provided the best outcome.
