Once you have ordered your seats, the number of DID's that come at no charge with the seats will be listed under the "Add Package" button (see "Total available to select 2 Total selected")


Order DID's

BluIP keeps a large standing inventory of DID’s in stock and our intent is to allow you to select the DID’s that you want to assign to your customer via the order forms.

You must have ordered seat(s) in order to have access to the DID ordering section.

  • Click on the Select DIDs to order new numbers. DO NOT include numbers you are porting.  Only order additional numbers needed.  

If any of the numbers being ordered is to be used for a fax, please provide the provisioning information in the "Notes"

  • Enter the NPA-NXX combination that you need
  • The system will then enter the Rate Center and provide a list of numbers currently in inventory
  • Select the DID's that you want to assign to this customer (you will be allowed to select the quantity of DIDs based on the packages that you ordered)
  • If there are no numbers currently in inventory, enter the quantity that you need in the backorder box
  • Final Step, Click the Order button
  • Note: Placing a backorder, generates a ticket that will be sent to our Provisioning Department.  They will place an order for the quantity needed within the NPA and NXX.

Save Order

Once you have the order complete you can click Save Order and the items that you have ordered will be provisioned in BroadSoft.

BroadSoft Set Up

You can now review the order you just placed in Orion and go to BroadSoft to build the user accounts and provision services using the credentials that were emailed to you.
