Has your business been considering getting United Arab Emirates phone numbers? If so, you should know that Global Call Forwarding enables businesses to get connected to the UAE simply by subscribing with our service. Subscribers have different varieties of phone numbers to choose from, including:
- Geographic Numbers
- Toll Free Numbers (mobile accessible)
Modern telephone numbers from Global Call Forwarding are made possible by cloud computing technologies, such as VoIP. More specifically, these phone numbers are referred to as “virtual phone numbers.” Therefore, let’s first take a look at how United Arab Emirates phone numbers work.
How United Arab Emirates Phone Numbers
Virtual phone numbers are a type of technology that enables phone-based communication to occur instantaneously around the world. This type of communication varies from the old telecommunication methods which required long expanses of landline cable. Instead, Businesses and individuals can communicate by using internet-connected devices, as well as by interfacing with landlines.
Essentially, when a virtual phone number is dialed by a caller, the call is redirected to another phone number (which is referred to as the “destination phone number”). Packets of audio data are instantly transmitted in real-time between users so that communication is seamless. The effect of this seamless communication means that if your business is located in another part of the world, you can still reach customers and businesses in the United Arab Emirates in the same way domestic businesses can.
Geographic UAE Phone Numbers
Geographic United Arab Emirates phone numbers are virtual phone numbers that have the same country code (+971) and area/region codes that “regular” phone numbers in the United Arab Emirates have.
The benefits of geographic phone numbers are wide-ranging, especially for businesses that want to immediately establish a presence in the country’s robust markets. For instance, your business can access these markets without facing restrictions that service providers may institute, such as long-distance fees or service blockages. Better yet, those located within the UAE can dial these phone numbers in the same fashion as domestic phone numbers, making it more likely that customers and clients can access your business.
Toll Free United Arab Emirates Numbers
Toll free United Arab Emirates phone numbers are exactly the same as toll free numbers from anywhere else. By subscribing with Global Call Forwarding, your business will receive a phone number with the same country code and remaining digits that match current toll free numbers within the country. Typically, these phone numbers are available as ITFS numbers, which are short for “International Toll Free Numbers.” When a caller in the UAE calls this number, they are not charged long distance fees. For businesses that don’t use toll free UAE phone numbers, callers in the UAE will be charged for making calls – which defeats the purpose.
The benefits of toll free numbers are numerous. First, by enabling your customers in the UAE to reach your business without incurring fees, you make your business more accessible. Secondly, toll free numbers give your business a professional sheen that local numbers do not. Third, customers appreciate having the ability to call a phone number and not incur a charge, which immediately helps when establishing your business as a professional entity worth doing business with.
