After all, any investment is a large one for most small businesses. To help you get a better grasp on how our international call forwarding works at Global Call Forwarding, consider the following.

What is International Call Forwarding?

In its most basic terms, call forwarding is a telephone service that allows you to redirect telephone calls to an alternative destination. The final destination for a call may be a mobile phone, landline, or voicemail box as has been set up by you, and the destination can be located anywhere in the world.

While its use in local settings is widespread, the use of international toll free numbers within the small business world has only recently taken off.

In a boarder sense, international call forwarding works through a complex network of virtual phone numbers with a centralized toll free number as the foundation. With Global Call Forwarding, each and every call that comes to your toll free number is directed to the number of your choice.
