Many businesses will have their own reasons for wanting an international number, but they might not know how easy it can be to access one. That’s because traditional business phone numbers are tied to a physical office or business location. That’s especially true if your business is still using an analog phone system, in which voice signals are carried over physical copper telephone wires.
However, for businesses who take advantage of VoIP technology, the possibilities are practically endless. A VoIP phone system is a cloud-based solution that can be accessed by team members around the globe, or provide an international virtual phone number.
An international virtual phone number is simply a phone number attached to your virtual phone system that has an international area code. So for a business located in the UK, using a virtual international phone number could give you access to US based area codes.
Businesses may want to take advantage of international virtual phone numbers for a variety of reasons, but the most common involve making your business more accessible. If you have employees located in the US, it may make sense to give them a phone number tied to their location. If you have a large US presence, or are looking to expand your US customer base, using an American phone number could help. That is because it will appear as a local number to US customers, which may be more appealing to some customers. It also will make your business phone number more accessible by phone, as some customers may not be able to make international calls to your UK based phone number.
During Yodel’s onboarding process it is simple to notify our team that you would like an American area code. You can further select the local code that best fits your business needs.
