What are Virtual Numbers, and how do they work?

Historically, Non Geographic Numbers (NGN’s) were charged (premium rate numbers) or free to call.  These allowed business to provide a single number which could be routed at network level to different locations – for example to provide a round the clock support desk or sales team.

With the development of the pure IP network, all numbers are, in effect, Virtual Numbers – they aren’t tied to a physical location, and can have a variety of inbuilt functionality at network level, such as the ability to ring multiple devices, call recording, and reporting.

How can you use a Virtual Number?

Businesses can use virtual phone numbers to build their brand, communicate with customers, and track marketing campaigns.

For example if you are a business with a local presence but a national customer base – for example a removal firm – then you can advertise numbers for different locations such as Scotland or Cornwall, and have them all answered in a central point.

You can also receive data on the number of calls received  – giving you the option to review marketing strategies and promotions, allowing you to focus on the solutions that work best for you
