Opening up lines of communication for your business is the key to acquiring new customers and retaining clientele. Which is why offering a business telephone line – or multiple lines – is critical to ensuring that your business is competitive and offers unobstructed access to your customer service, transaction processing, helplines, and more. In this article, we will cover what business phone lines are, how they work, and how to get them from United World Telecom. Let’s begin.
What is a Business Phone Line?
First and foremost, a business telephone line is just as the name implies: a means of communicating with your business by phone. However, with modern technologies available from United World Telecom, business telephone lines have taken advantage of the newest advancements in telecommunications, namely cloud computing.
How do Virtual Business Telephone Lines Work?
Cloud computing enables business telephone lines to circumvent the typical limitations of landline telecommunications which hamper business expansion and accessibility for your organization. Thanks to this new technology, businesses are able to extend “virtual phone numbers,” a cloud-based technology that helps avoid long distance fees, network blockages from service providers, and other restrictions.
Virtual Phone Lines for Business
In essence, virtual phone numbers serve as a type of overlay for your existing business phone line, but exponentiate service immensely. When a caller dials your virtual phone number, the call is immediately routed through the Internet and reproduced on the recipient’s phone. The process also works vice versa in real-time, with crystal-clear sound quality, zero latency issues, and the flexibility of working across international and regional borders.
Virtual phone numbers are best explained by an example: Suppose that your business is located in the United States, but you want to extend a business phone line for your international customers in the United Kingdom. Normally, UK-based customers would have to dial outside of their country and incur long distance fees. However, by using a United Kingdom virtual phone number, those UK-based customers can dial your virtual phone number just as they would any other domestic phone call. Best of all, virtual phone numbers are identical in look and function to “normal” business phone lines, which means that callers are more likely to patronize your business’ localization efforts and do business with your organization.
ITFS and Local Business Phone Lines
Furthermore, United World Telecom provides a variety of business phone line option, including ITFS and local phone numbers, and more – each with their own specific usages and appeal. And what’s more, is that business telephone lines can benefit from a wealth of add-ons offered by United World Telecom that increases the functionality of virtual phone numbers. For instance, you can use “call recording” to store and later review calls made to and from your virtual phone numbers to ensure compliance with global regulations (i.e. GDPR, HIPAA, PCI-DSS), as well as review your employee’s adherence to company service standards.
