Today, many companies are internationalizing and conquering new foreign markets. This phenomenon offers many advantages, including access to a greater number of consumers and suppliers, but it also presents disadvantages. Communication can become more expensive and difficult if the company does not have the ability to make unlimited calls around the world.
We live in an increasingly competitive world, in which companies struggle to be the first to enter new markets. For this reason, it is essential to equip yourself with all the necessary tools to internationalize your business.
How do we traditionally call a foreign country?
To call abroad, you usually dial the prefix assigned to the country you want to call. This is a very simple and fast process that connects two people in countries that may be located on opposite sides of the world. However, despite its simplicity, it has a considerable cost, which can increase depending on which countries are involved.
Over the years, new technologies have enabled the development of tools, applications, etc. that allow communication around the world, often using the WiFi network. This is the case of applications such as Skype, WhatsApp, Viber, Messenger, and many others. Their use varies according to age groups and countries.
Although these communication tools have become popular and have begun to be used in the business world, they do not reflect a professional image of the company that uses them. Furthermore, on many occasions these applications do not work properly, for example, with the existence of failures and even security violations, which does not guarantee the confidentiality of the information transmitted through them.
Making unlimited calls abroad with a virtual number provided by Fonvirtual
At Fonvirtual, we offer Virtual PBX services and Call Center Software which works with WebRTC technology. We offer you even more features. We also offer virtual numbers from most countries around the world.
A virtual number allows you to make calls worldwide at low or zero cost.
For example, you can call Australia for free from France. In fact, if you have a virtual number associated with Australia (with the corresponding prefix), you can call this country wherever you are, just as if you were in Australia. Your customers will not know you are abroad because you will still be calling with the same Australian number, and there is no extra charge for the call.
On the other hand, if you have a French virtual number, you are in France and you need to make a call to Australia, you can make it from your number at the price of an outgoing call. The call is not free, but you will not be surprised when you receive your phone bill. If, as your business grows, you find you have more and more customers in Australia or another country, you can get virtual numbers for those countries.
When can making unlimited calls with a virtual number be useful?
- To internationalize your business
- To gain the trust of customers abroad
- To show a professional image
- To grow your business if you are self-employed
- To have the same phone number for all employees
- To be able to travel while you take calls
How does a virtual number work?
With a virtual number, you can make and receive calls the same way you would with a traditional number. When a customer calls your number, the virtual phone system will redirect the call to your mobile phone or even, if you want, to your home line. Therefore, you have the option to add as many different numbers as you want to your current phone service. In addition, the customer will not know that the call has been redirected.
The main advantage is that you will not have to waste time and money duplicating SIM cards to be able to differentiate your professional life from your private one and, in addition, you will have the opportunity to answer the most important calls even if you are not in the office.
Advantages of the virtual number
- There are no geographical limits, with a virtual number you can call from anywhere and receive calls wherever you are. All you need is an Internet connection and a computer, laptop or tablet.
- Reduction of the cost of international calls, since you will not have to bear the cost of international calls made from a traditional phone line, which is translated into a great saving for society.
- Artificial intelligence, as the virtual number offers you tools that provide value to the company, both to customers and suppliers.
- Privacy, because in this way the businessman does not need to indicate his personal number on the company’s website.
- Convenience, since the entrepreneur does not have to use two phones or SIM cards to maintain his privacy.
- HD quality: no matter where you are, if you have a good Internet connection, HD quality is assured.
How can a virtual number help increase the profitability of the business?
One of the keys to the company’s success is working to offer a responsible and, above all, reliable image. Therefore, it is necessary to try to make a good first impression on our communication channels, whether by mail, phone or in person. In addition, our company must respond positively to the demands of our customers, so it is necessary to establish a good system of organization.
For all these reasons, it is interesting to invest in a virtual number, through which calls can be received, anywhere and at any time, from local or international telephone numbers. At Fonvirtual, we offer you a virtual numbering service with all the functionalities you can imagine. If you are interested in making unlimited calls, we invite you to contact us for more information.
