UK Virtual Phone Numbers in Action Use Cases

UK Virtual Phone Number

There are many ways in which UK virtual phone numbers can be used in real-world scenarios. Here are a few examples:


  • Businesses can use virtual phone numbers to have a local presence in different parts of the UK, even if they do not have a physical location there. For instance, this can be useful for companies that want to reach a wider audience or expand into new geographical markets by creating the appearance of being local to a specific UK city.


  • UK Virtual phone numbers can be used by individuals who want to keep their personal phone number private. For example, someone who is selling items online or providing services may not want to give out their personal phone number to every potential client.


  • Virtual phone numbers can be used as a way to forward calls to multiple people or devices. For example, a small business owner might use a virtual phone number as a way to route calls to their personal phone, their office phone, and their assistant's phone. Enabling the simultaneous ringing option would cause all of these phones to ring at the same time.


  • Virtual phone numbers can be used to set up a temporary phone line for a specific event or project. For example, a charity fundraiser might use a virtual phone number as a way to take donations.


  • Virtual numbers can be used to set up a hotline for customer support or to take orders for a business. This can be particularly useful for small businesses that do not have the resources to set up a dedicated phone line for these purposes.


According to the Official Website of the International Trade Administration


"Now UK, it seems, after Brexit the impact upon the UK’s Information and communication technology sector largely depends upon what model the UK adopts for its relationship with the EU.


The UK is one of the world’s largest information communication technology (ICT) markets, with the country being in 2nd place in the ranking of ICT spending per head (U.S. is #1). The UK digital technology turnover in 2018 amounted to over $240bn. About 100,000 software companies operate in the UK. The UK is the number one destination (often serving as EMEA HQ) for U.S. ICT businesses in Europe. Despite the looming Brexit uncertainty, the UK ICT sector attracted more venture capital investment in 2018 than any other European country.


After Brexit, if the UK remains in the European Economic Area then the changes may be minimal; if the UK joins the European Free Trade Association and negotiates sector specific access to the single market then the landscape depends on the exact nature of that relationship; if the UK distances itself further from the EU then the changes may be more extensive."


UK Virtual PBX for Incoming Calls from USA or Any Country


The United States is UK's largest trade partner along with Asian countres and Germany, accounting for $133 billion in imports from UK in 2018. Chinese businesses targeting customers in USA can order a toll free global call forwarding local to USA that rings to a call center in UK. Not only does doing so make it easy for business customers in the United States to get in touch with the UK based supplier, global call forwarding numbers can be configured as a virtual PBX system complete with auto attendant, custom greeting, mailbox extensions, time of day routing and more.


For example, a supplier in UK could divert incoming calls to the appropriate team member by having the auto attendant prompt callers to choose from a set of predefined options such as "Press 1 for order status, press 2 to place an order…" and so on.


Receive Calls from the UK


Organizations in other countries can also use UK virtual phone numbers to receive phone calls from UK. For example, a software company in the United Arab Emirates servicing customers in UK could set up a toll free phone number specific to UK in order to receive phone calls from its customers located in UK. Though the phone calls originate in UK, the phone rings in the UAE.


Communicating between Branch Offices in UK and Another Country


Many global businesses have branch offices around the world, requiring an affordable, convenient way to communicate between branches. For example, an international company with branch offices in India, UAE and Saudi Arabia and UK requires a great deal of communication between all associates in those countries. International phone calls between UAE and UK or India and Saudi Arabia can become quite expensive, and dialing internationally is often confusing to employees who may be unfamiliar with country and exit codes. Using virtual phone numbers reduces communication costs while simplifying phone calls.


UK call forwarding to UAE


The branch in UK dials a local phone number, which diverts the calls to the branch in UAE. This is a local call to UK employees, so it's easy to dial. Our low international call forwarding rates ensure that the phone call is economical.


India call forwarding to UK


For India based employees, the reverse is set up with a local India phone number that rings to the branch office in UK.
