Virtual landlines free you from the need to be near an office phone and allow you to work remotely while appearing to be a business that can answer the phone at a moments notice – it really does give you the best of both worlds.
Diverting your landline telephone to your mobile is super easy and comes with a host of benefits for you and the caller. On a regular device, begin by picking up the telephone so that you hear the dial tone. Then, enter the numbers ’21’ followed by the number that you want the call to be diverted to, confirm this by pressing the hash-key (#). For example, you’ll want to type something like: ‘2107319591725#’. Once that is done, you’ll often hear a confirmation along the lines of ‘service feature activated’. If you’re a business that is growing at scale, however, then a proper virtual landline infrastructure should be considered as it can go beyond just diverting calls and offer other features.
A virtual phone call is quite simply a call that takes place over a digital connection. The ‘virtualness’ of it comes from the fact that no physical infrastructure, such as traditional landline phones or phone lines, are used to make or receive a phone call. A virtual phone call works by turning speech from one user into data, scrambling it, and sending it to the other person, converting it back to speech, and playing it through the phone – all of this is done in a matter of milliseconds. To the people on each end of the call, they don’t even notice this process because it happens so quickly, instead, they just enjoy clearer call quality.
Here at Prestige Telecom Group, we’re confident that, as well as offering flexible contracts, we can provide you with a mobile broadband business plan that offers incredibly reliable internet access, so you can focus on your business and not worry about your portable internet solutions.
In theory, yes. You can use your home phone to make and receive calls from prospective clients and customers. However, there is a big caveat to that, just because you can, does that mean you should? While it may seem like a quick-fix, this may only be good in the short term. If your business, that you operate from home, begins to expand, getting regular phone calls from customers to your personal home phone may quickly present logistical problems. What if one of your family members answers it? What if someone else is on the phone at the time of the incoming call? What if you’re out at the time of the call? Thankfully, all this can be eradicated with a virtual landline that gives your business the illusion of a physical location, without needing you to disclose your personal landline.
- Update firmware – Semi-regularly, check if your mobile broadband routers require updating. Most devices run on firmware which may need to be updated a few times over the years that you own the device. Keeping it updated will ensure you’re always receiving the best connection.
- Switch to OpenDNS – An OpenDNS may offer you a safer, more reliable connection, in addition to the speeds offered from a mobile broadband package. If you notice delays in website loading, despite a strong signal, consider an OpenDNS.
- Use a USB extension with your dongle – If you use mobile broadband dongles, use a USB extension cable to attach it to your computer. This extra distance allows you to position your dongle in an area where the signal is better and reduces electrical interference from your PC.
Yes – by downloading the correct software you can effectively turn your laptop, or any internet-enabled device for that matter, into a business phone. You just receive the call on your laptop and speak as if you were on the phone. That is one of the many advantages of a virtual phone system is that, to the person making the call, they think they are just calling a regular landline number. As we’ve stated, this means you can appear to have a physical location be it the UK as a whole, or somewhere within it, that is more specific, such as Manchester or Leeds.
While there may be no hard evidence, the assumption couldn’t be clearer, having a landline number, be it traditional, or part of virtual phone services is an absolute must. At the very least, it won’t harm your business. For local businesses or businesses that wish to appear local, a landline with a geographic code (0121, 0161 etc) can instil immediate trust and convenience because the person making the call already assumes that they are calling a local business that can sort their needs quicker because they are nearby. Of course, in the modern world, all avenues of communication, from VoIP digital phones right the way through to chatbots, should be considered as the way people interact changes. A virtual landline should be thought of as a priority when selecting which methods to employ.
