Activate a business phone number: ideal nationwide company phone numbers

Published in Business phone numbers

Among the most popular number types are business numbers. Applying for these can be done by any business owner. These phone numbers are suitable for businesses of all shapes and sizes: from sole traders to large companies with several branches across the country. In this article, we would like to tell you how you can apply for a business number and how this works with business telephony.

What is a business phone number?

A business number is a special set of telephone numbers for businesses.

In practice, many associations, institutions and other organisations also use this type of telephone number because of its many advantages. The name mainly indicates business use.
A business number is a non-geographic telephone number. These area codes are not tied to any city or region. The caller cannot therefore deduce the region or place of business from the area code. Private numbers can be reached both nationally and internationally at the standard rate.

Advantages of business phone numbers

It is no wonder that more and more entrepreneurs are requesting company phone numbers. After all, this type of phone number brings with it all sorts of attractive benefits.

  • Sales throughout the country

    Corporate numbers are non-geographic. This makes these numbers very suitable for organisations that want to address the national market.

  • Reachable on any device

    The final destination of company phone numbers can be any device: a mobile phone, a fixed line or a VoIP phone. Switching to another extension is done in a matter of seconds.

  • Be reachable at local rates

    Business telephone numbers have a favourable call rate, which is the same as that of normal telephone numbers.

  • Always keep the same numbers

    Changing numbers is no longer an option. Company numbers are virtual numbers that connect to the terminals of your choice. Even if these extensions or destination numbers change, your customers won't notice.
