What is a Business Phone Number?

A business phone number is a virtual number for business, used to seamlessly connect consumers with an organization. As they're cloud based and not associated with a particular phone line, a business number can be based in any location of your choosing. That means, if your customer base is predominantly in the US but you have offices elsewhere, you can select a US number then redirect calls to your head office, call center, or mobile as needed. You can choose local business numbers to establish a presence in a particular location, or toll free national business numbers to give a sense of corporate prestige.

How Can Business Phone Numbers Help Your Business?

A virtual business phone comes with a wide range of business benefits. As well as allowing calls to be forwarded to any location, business phone numbers come with features that you wouldn't find with an ordinary phone line. You can set up custom greetings and IVR, helping connect customers with the department they need, or enjoy the convenience of voicemail and fax being sent directly to your inbox - so you never miss an important message again. Business phone numbers are also scalable and flexible, meaning you can add as many numbers as you need via your online control center.
