The Power of Virtual Phone Numbers
What is a virtual landline number?
Also known as a pocket landline number, a virtual phone number is a cloud-based service that allows you to choose a number for any geographic location in the UK.
Why get a virtual phone number for your business?
Today’s dynamic business landscape demands a dynamic phone solution. This is what you get when you buy a virtual phone number. They offers flexibility and versatility in ways a traditional phone line can never do. Here are a few quick examples of its uses.
- Your distributed workforce, scattered in different locations, can come together with a single business phone number.
- Members of the team can work virtually anywhere using a range of electronic devices.
- With call analytics you can easily monitor phone usage and use it to gauge the success of your marketing campaigns.
Advertising a business number that starts with either 01 or 02 can imply to your clients that you are based locally, helping you build credibility and trust.
Choose the local code your customers dial
With a virtual landline number you can choose where your company appears to be located. Your customers’ calls will be instantly and automatically redirected to any of your existing lines — landline or mobile.
