How 0800 Numbers & 03 Numbers Offer Businesses Complete Freedom

According to research by a telecommunications company, one of the main reasons that businesses choose 0800 phone numbers and other non-geographic numbers is because they are completely portable.

A phone number that can follow businesses wherever they go means they have complete freedom and can be safe in the knowledge that their potential and existing customers will always be able to get hold of them. This means no missed calls or loss of business which is particularly crucial in the current economic environment.

The reason non-geographic phone numbers (e.g. 03 numbers) are so portable is because they work alongside any landline or mobile number and this receiving number can be changed at anytime.

So, if a company wants to relocate, it can simply direct all calls to its 0800 numbers to a new landline without paying any costly divert charges. Equally, if a business requires some of its calls to be picked up on a mobile phone – this is easily achieved too.

Additionally, one of the key points about non-geographic numbers is the fact they don’t require any additional equipment to operate. They can be managed completely online or over the phone which makes them invaluable in the event of disaster recovery. For example, if a company’s landlines fail it can simply change which landline or mobile its 03 phone number’s calls go to, online 24/7. And even if online access is not possible – this can easily be achieved over the phone too!

What’s more, portability is just the tip of the iceberg. Depending on what non-geographic number a company chooses there are a host of other benefits for businesses.

For example:

• 03 numbers ( let callers phone them for the same price as a regular landline (01/02) number – even from a mobile phone. This means there is no barrier between a company and its callers and they are highly likely to receive more calls.

• 0800 numbers ( are totally free for landline callers to phone at all times – making them superb marketing phone numbers for businesses.

• 0845 numbers ( are the UK’s most popular business phone number and therefore have a very high public awareness. Plus, they are also free for 14m BT landline customers who are on its Anytime/Evening & Weekend call plans – meaning a lot of customers will be able to phone companies for free.

Non-geographic numbers offer all this and that’s even before a discussion about the various ways that they can help organisations smarten up the way they deal with calls. For example, caller options (press 1 for sales, 2 for customer services etc.), call queuing and call recording is all possible with non-geographic numbers and do not require any additional hardware to clutter up the office.
