Virtual phone numbers will give a small business the perception to the outside world that a company is much bigger.
With all STD codes available this can also appear that a company has many business premises.
Despite the benefits that shows to the outside world that a company appears to be a much “bigger player” in their own market sector ,by having a virtual telephone number it delivers a business the protection such as disaster recovery.
Should a company suffer with technical difficulties then calls can be diverted to a different location such as another office or a mobile phone which can be a big benefit as your existing or potential new customers can continue to make contact.
Most virtual numbers do have other benefits such as a welcome message or a voice mail.
By having a virtual number should any business move site/office then the number follows the business cutting down the worry that your main business number will never be lost.
