A. Launching Wed, April 1st, First Orion is offering its programmable Caller ID enhancement service, "INFORM," for free. The program will run April 1 to July 31, 2020 for qualifying Essential Service Providers, including hospitals, first responders, and healthcare providers.

A. During this time of crisis amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to increase critical communications and ensure delivery. First Orion is stepping up to be part of the solution. Consumers are trained to not answer calls from unknown numbers, but our INFORM Call Enhancement solution encourages consumers to answer calls that would otherwise be ignored or go to voicemail. At this critical moment, calls from hospitals, first responders, healthcare providers and other essential businesses need to be identified and answered because lives are at stake and time is of the essence.
