The use of toll free numbers is widely known and adopted. Toll free forwarding, on the other hand, may be less widely known, though the benefits of toll free forwarding are vast.
For any business looking to keep up with and hopefully outshine the competition, building a virtual presence is a must, and expanding to global markets is almost completely unavoidable in most sectors. It is not practical to expect a business to be able to open a brick and mortar shop and/ or establish a physical location in every target country in which they want to have a presence throughout the world. This is where toll free forwarding plays an instrumental role in allowing businesses to establish themselves in target nations without physically being located in those countries of choice.
Toll Free Forwarding for Businesses
United World Telecom offers an alternative to the astronomical costs involved in opening a physical location in every target market a business wishes to operate within across the globe. The solution is in toll free forwarding. Calls made to a virtual toll free phone number are forwarded to a phone number selected by the business owners. For example, your company can be based in Miami, Florida and offer a toll free number to a target market in Germany, where callers that make calls through the toll free number from Germany will have their calls rerouted to a customer service center in Miami, Florida. The caller will have no knowledge of where the end location is, however, as far as they know, they are still making a toll free call.
The use of toll free forwarding facilitates great savings while allowing a company to establish themselves in a new market.
