08 Alphanumeric Numbers can increase brand recognition and help increase the number of sales enquiries a company receives. Customers are given a memorable number to call where the alphanumeric element is relevant to the service offered by that company, making it much easier for callers to remember.
With alpha numeric numbers, the last digits of the 08 number can actually correspond to the letters on a phone handset. For example, a company called Joe Bloggs could have the number 0800 585 6447 which could be advertised alphanumerically as 0800 JBLOGGS which will stick in the mind of customers over the standard number.
Unlike in the USA where alphanumeric numbers are very popular, here in the UK alphanumeric numbers aren't as widely used because we have far fewer number ranges making it difficult to match phrases and therefore to accommodate specific requests.
You also want to insure that the number you are taking is from a major network and not just choosing it for the look as numbers from what we call no one carriers can cause major issues for the user including poor call quality. We represent 7 major tier 1 networks so if the number you are looking for exists with a major network - we are the best company to help you source it.
