With a virtual 0161 phone number, your callers will think they’re calling Manchester, wherever you’re actually located. Yes no-one will know they are not calling a real Mancunian landline, the number being virtual just appears to route the call to your Manchester office. With any virtual landline number your incoming calls are instantly routed through to a location or destination line of your choice, to one of your existing phone numbers; landline or mobile or overseas. It doesn't matter what this 'destination liner' is, or where you're located, your callers will believe they're dialling a landline in Manchester. Naturally, they'll be completely unaware their calls are being redirected. For those in Manchester, 0161 is known as the local landline code.
You can add a whole range of service-enhancing features to your new Manchester number. Using a virtual number (as opposed to a traditional landline) means you can give your callers a list of redirection options, IVR to choose a specific department for example.
Automatically redirects any calls to a secondary line number in your office on the event the main or 1st destination is busy (engaged tone) or isn’t answered (rings out) or has a fault (dead tone on line).
With Time/Day Plan you can set up your virtual 0161 number so that calls are automatically redirected to a different destination number at specific times e.g every evening and/or at weekends. Our other add-ons include Call Tracking, Mid Call Transfer, Zone Plan (to manage incoming calls by their town or postcode of origin), Call Queuing, Call Recording, Voicemail and Live Call Answering.
Moving your company's premises soon, you probably will be doing at some point within the best few years. With a virtual 0161 number, you just simply redirect your incoming calls to your new lines numbers to SIP lines or Skype. Then you have no requirement to print all your company cards again. Keep your old line number by making it into a virtual number. Switching then your 'destination number' only takes a few seconds online or we can do this for you free of charge.
