Setting Up Business Offshore with Global Virtual Phone Numbers for USA and Canada

Since the global virtual phone number transfers the phone calls from USA or Canada to your designated phone in a different country, your existing office staff can handle the incoming calls.

North America MapIf your business serves a North American customer base but is located offshore, you’ll need a convenient way for customers to call you.

At the same time, you may not want them worrying about calling an office in the Caribbean, the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, Honduras, or wherever your office may happen to be.

Using global virtual phone numbers takes geographical phone number differences out of the equation, while also allowing for more robust communications between your customers and your customer and tech support staff.

How Global Virtual Phone Numbers for USA and Canada Work

A virtual phone number from another country looks and acts like a native phone number to callers from within that country. However, any calls made are automatically routed to a phone located elsewhere in the world.

For example, let’s say you’re running a financial consultancy located in Brazil with many of your clients living in USA. Rather than giving them your Brazilian phone number and expecting them to call you using international long distance, you could simply get a USA global virtual phone number. You can order either a toll free global virtual number for USA or choose a regional global virtual number such as for New York, Atlanta, Miami, or Los Angeles.

To the caller in the United States, or Canada as the case may be, it is not readily apparent that the global virtual phone number is for a business located in Brazil. If you use a city-specific global virtual phone number such as for Miami, Florida, it will appear as though your business has a local office in that city.

This is one of the least expensive ways to establish a local business presence. Since the global virtual phone number transfers the phone calls from USA or Canada to your designated phone in a different country, your existing office staff can handle the incoming calls. Similarly, you could also choose to have the global virtual phone numbers ring to a call center.

Using Virtual Phone Numbers in Canada

All of our Canada virtual phone numbers are routed over a modern, fiberoptic PSTN network for the best audio quality and reliability possible.

Toronto Ontario Canada imageDoing business in a large country like Canada often requires the use of a toll free phone number in order to handle incoming calls from coast to coast.

While getting a toll free number is highly recommended, you may also want to use virtual phone numbers in Canada.

Below are a few reasons to consider using virtual phone numbers in Canada.

  • Virtual Canadian phone numbers make your business look local. For example, if your main office is in New York, but you serve the entire Canadian market, you could order virtual phone numbers for cities across Canada and configure them so that all incoming calls are routed to your New York office. Having Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, and Brampton phone numbers would make it look as though you have local offices in each of those cities.
  • Virtual Canada phone numbers reduce concerns about calling another city or country. Though long distance rates have fallen, many people remain hesitant about dialing another city or country. By setting up virtual phone numbers in Canada, you can eliminate these concerns. Your callers in Montreal will recognize a Montreal prefix and be able to call you without worrying about where you might be located. You can even get a virtual toll free number for Canada and route your calls to any country in the world. Again, your Canadian callers won’t think twice about making a call because they’ll recognize the toll free nature of the phone number.
  • With virtual phone numbers for Canada, you can centralize your call center. Though you may have dozens of virtual phone numbers across Canada, you can set your virtual numbers up so that they ring to a central location such as your main office or a contracted call center. There’s no need to rent and staff offices in cities across the country.
  • You can configure your Canada virtual numbers to perform advanced functions. Our virtual numbers come with several advanced features. For example, do you want to greet callers with a personalized greeting or send them to a voice response system? With our virtual numbers, you can do just that and more. You can even configure your virtual numbers so that they ring to a specific phone based on where the calls originate or the time of day they are made. Optional features include rollover minutes and call recording.

Our Canada virtual phone numbers are available without a contract. Whether you need a virtual number for a short period of time or for ongoing use, we have a month-to-month plan for you.
