Get a local phone number in an area you don’t have an office13th March 2009
Now your customers can call you on a cheap local number even when your office is on the other side of the country.
Our Local Area Numbers give you a virtual office anywhere in the UK!
To put it simply, Local Area Numbers give your business a phone number in an area where you don’t have any actual premises.
For example, say you’re based in Birmingham on an 0121 code. But you want to give the impression that you’ve got a London office. We give you an 0207 number for your customers to call, but it’s automatically redirected to your Birmingham number.
Simple! And your customers are none the wiser.
Get a local presence all over the country
Local Area Numbers mean you could have ‘virtual’ offices all over the UK.
In fact, there are 350 local STD codes to choose from, so you could use a variety of different numbers in your local press advertising, for example.
This means it’s cheaper for your customers to call you and they believe they’re calling a local company.
Save £££’s vs BT
Naturally, we’re not the only telecoms company who can supply Local Area Numbers. BT does them too but they’ll sting you for a whopping £106 per quarter.
However, all we charge is a one-off £0 for connection (if you buy online), then just £12.50 per month, plus 3.5p per minute to receive calls.
And you can change the destination number that the local area number connects to as often as you like, for free.
No extra lines to rent or equipment to buy
Rest assured that when you buy a Planet Numbers local area phone number, there’s absolutely no requirement for extra phone lines or any equipment whatsoever.
We simply divert the incoming calls to an existing number of your choice. Your phone will continue to receive calls on its original number as usual as well as the incoming ‘local’ calls, and can be used to make outgoing calls as normal.
Add a virtual receptionist to your virtual office!
Adding our virtual office services to your Planet Numbers local number gives your customers an even better service.
For example, Virtual Receptionist gives them a list of options to key eg to be put through to a a specific department. Divert Plan automatically redirects their calls to a secondary number if the main destination is busy or is not answered, and Time/Day Plan diverts incoming calls to a different number at specific times eg in the evening and at weekends.
Other useful services include Zone Plan (to manage incoming calls by their town of origin), Call Queuing and Voicemail to Email.
