Why should you have a UK virtual phone number?

Having a virtual UK phone number can be a great tool for businesses located throughout the world. That is because you don’t need to be physically located in the UK to take advantage of a UK virtual phone number.

That is because of VoIP technology, where calls are made and received over the internet instead of relying on traditional physical phone lines. The phone number isn’t tied to one location, and your virtual phone number can reflect that if you’d like it to do so.

The benefits of a UK virtual phone number are accessible to any business who is utilizing a virtual phone system that gives them access to a UK area code. Not every provider is able to supply global virtual phone numbers, so it makes sense to check that prior to choosing your system.

Using a UK virtual phone number makes the most sense for businesses that:

  • Have a physical location in the UK


  • Have a large customer base in the UK


  • Have plans to expand their UK operations

    And more!

That is because your UK virtual phone number will signal to your callers that your business is located in the UK. This can help you connect to a local customer base, even if you aren’t currently in that area. If you have a large customer base in the UK, your UK virtual phone number will make your business more accessible to those callers as it wouldn’t be an international call.

If you are looking to expand your operations into the UK, it makes sense to have your phone system setup prior to making the physical move. This will allow you to get a head start on communicating with the new local community.

Can your virtual phone be accessed on a mobile device?

This depends on the specific provider, but with Yodel your virtual phone number can be accessed through your mobile device via our iOS and Android Apps. You can also access your Yodel number through Slack, via our Slack integration. This eliminates the need to purchase a secondary phone just to access your business phone number. Instead, you can utilize a device you already have access to, and easily distinguish between personal and business call.
