What is a Virtual Number (Australia)?
A virtual number is a remote call forwarding number that is not tied to a physical location. In the case of Australia, you could get a virtual number for Sydney complete with its local area code of 28, and set it up so that any calls made to your Australian virtual phone number would be call forwarded to the phone number of your choice.
Local virtual numbers for Australia are available for dozens of communities throughout the country including Sydney, Perth, Cape River, Liverpool, Adelaide, Sunbury, Swan Hill, and Wagga Wagga to name a few.
Use Cases for a Virtual Number in Australia
Perhaps the best way to see the value of an Australian virtual phone number is by seeing how others have used their virtual phone numbers. Below are a few use cases to inspire you:
- Set up an Australian call center in the United States — In this example, you have an established call center in the United States and need to set one up in Australia as well. As you know, building, equipping, and staffing a call center is expensive. Instead of going to the trouble of doing all that, get a local virtual number for Australia, hire a few Australian CSRs, and route your Australian calls directly to your Australian CSRs desks in your US call center.
- Set up an Australian tech support line based in India — This scenario is nearly identical to the call center scenario, only it involves technical support calls to your tech support center in India. Again, a virtual number for your Australia calls will save you a ton of money — and your customers won’t know that they’re calling another country.
- Set up a personal Australian virtual phone number and forward it to your personal cell phone — In this case, you might have family, friends, or colleagues in Australia who need to call you on your personal cell phone. However, you want to save them the trouble and cost of an international phone call. By getting a virtual Australian phone number and routing it to your personal cell phone, you can make their lives easier and be easy to reach no matter where in the world you may be.
