Numberite can supply UK 01, 02 Business Phone Numbers, also known as Virtual numbers or Forwarding Numbers for as little as £6.00 per month. These numbers are like any standard area code landline or can be 0800 or 0330 numbers, but they are not linked to a PSTN phone landline. This means you can have a local or national phone number without the need to have a line installed or the cost of one. Where the number is set as a Forwarding number it can only be used to receive incoming calls.
For example, you could live in Plymouth, but choose to advertise an Exeter number. Calls to this number would be forwarded to your mobile or landline. So you know the call is from the new number we can add a “Call Whisper”, which is a word or phrase only you hear when you receive a forwarded call. The caller will hear ringing, but you will know the caller is via your virtual number.
If you require a business number where you want to make out-going calls as well as receiving incoming calls, this is easy with a few simple steps. You choose your number, choose a desk phone or walkabout phone or smartphone/Windows App. we configure your phone extension to work within our PBX software system, giving you access to 24 features and benefits of call management. More information on phone systems from 1 user plus-size businesses can be found here
If you already have a landline number you wish to keep we can “Port” this number into our PBX phone system allowing you to use the many features and functions to manage your calls professionally. Porting of your number takes around 10 working days with a one-off charge of £30.00 + VAT. Once your number has ported to our system there is a monthly fee of £6.00 +VAT per month to use the number within our PBX Software System.
How does it work?
You select a number for the area or national number you require, then any calls received are forwarded to your landline or mobile. Much the same way an email is forwarded.
What type of numbers can we have?
We can supply 01 or 02 National (geographic) numbers for anywhere in the UK. 0330 or 0845 which are low rate national numbers and 0800 Freephone numbers. These numbers are also called non-geographic.
What can the numbers be used for?
They have many uses including:
Tracking advertisements – different numbers can be used for different adverts and allow you to monitor, using a web portal how many times the number is called.
Allows you to run a business from a mobile but advertise a landline.
Move to a different area and take your landline number with you
Advertise to another area, if you live in Plymouth and would like to advertise a number to clients in Exeter, a Business Phone Number is what you need
Employee local numbers – if your employees or remote workers are distant from your office, these numbers can help keep the call charges down.
Approval numbers – if you are looking to win contracts in a different area, these numbers can help you to appear local.
How much will it cost?
There is no setup fee and each number supplied will be only £6 per month. Calls are then forwarded to your landline or mobile for 2p per minute to a landline or 5p per minute to a mobile. Where you use a 0800 number also add 3p per minute for the incoming portion of the call.
How many numbers would I need to get a discount?
If you purchase 5 or more numbers we can offer discounted rates.
Will you tie me to a long contract?
No, there are no contracts, you just pay up to the end of the month and the numbers are gone. So great for short advertising campaigns or when you need a temporary number.
Can I call out using the Business Phone Number?
To do this you will need our “1 User” phone system, where you are supplied a Business Phone Number and 1 phone extension. This way you can receive and make calls using your Business Phone Number.
