WESTINGHOUSE COMMUNICATIONS OFFERS BUSINESS CUSTOMERS 800 SERVICES

 PITTSBURGH, July 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Westinghouse Communications announced today it is offering business customers a full range of 800 number services.
 The expanded service offering follows the advent of portability, where 800 customers can change their carriers without also having to change their 800 numbers.
 Westinghouse Communications, a full-service communications provider, also offers voice and data communications and will continue as a one-stop service in supplying 800 services for its customers.
 "This new 800 portability will allow us to serve our customers better," said Thomas J. O'Toole, director of communication systems for Westinghouse Communications. "Although we have long offered 800 services, we can now provide a number of enhancements to make billing, call accountability, and call management easier."
 Westinghouse Communications will act as a RESPORG (Responsible Organization) and will have access to the 800-number database. This will also enable the company to service, activate, and deactivate numbers, as well as coordinate 800 trouble reports.
 As a telecommunications provider, the Westinghouse division will continue to administer all 800 services and features. If a customer has several 800 numbers with different carriers, Westinghouse Communications can aggregate multiple vendors and provide a single point of contact for service administration.
 "The time for 800 portability has come," said O'Toole. "It will provide a great benefit for users because it provides competition, which should result in better rates and services."
 One of the advantages Westinghouse offers to its 800 customers is the ability to provide a single bill with all 800 services from several carriers.
 Westinghouse Communications is a private carrier and provides a full range of telecommunications products, including long distance voice and data, calling cards, audioconferencing, videoconferencing, electronic mail, and voice message systems.
 Other products offered by the Westinghouse unit include virtual networks, private lines, switched digital services, frame relay, packet switching, electronic data exchange, local area networks, and related applications for domestic and international businesses.
