How do China Virtual Numbers Work?
China virtual numbers are programmed specifically to forward incoming phone calls from China to other phone lines; when a call is placed by a client or customer in China, the call is automatically directed to a predetermined number(s) or to a voice mailbox. The number is a Chinese number, and it will be forwarded to the number of your choice, regardless of whether it’s a landline or mobile number.
China virtual numbers work in two major ways:
- One device used with multiple channels: A virtual number can forward calls to any device of your choice, including a phone number that already exists. There is no need to buy a new device since you can have your business calls forwarded to your personal phone with technology that identifies whether it is a personal or a business call. Multiple virtual numbers can be connected to a particular phone, and this can be used to test different ad campaigns and observe which number performs better.
- One phone number used with multiple devices: Since a virtual number works via a call forwarding service platform like Global Call Forwarding, the number of devices that it can direct calls to is almost unlimited. Therefore, a virtual number can be combined with several devices so customers can access your business easily, whether reaching multiple people with access to the business number or just one from several devices. When a call is placed, it can be directed to all the pre-set numbers at once with all the phones ringing at the same time, or from one number to another after a couple of rings till someone answers. This is a feature mostly used in the telecommunications industry or customer support services for the best customer service.
China Values Business
- Simultaneous / Sequential Ringing: To ensure you do not miss any important business calls, incoming calls can be configured to ring simultaneously which enables multiple phones to ring at the same time until an employee takes the call or allows it to ring sequentially, which routes incoming calls down to a list of pre-set numbers in a sequential order. This also allows you to forward calls to several departments or extensions, such as local offices, marketing & sales departments, support and customer services, and even your home phone if that’s most convenient.
- Auto-Attendant Service: This feature allows calls to be answered by an auto-receptionist. You do not have to worry about missing any important calls from clients or customers in China if you happen to be busy or out of reach. The auto-attendant answers the call and has the ability to transfer it to the extension that will reach capable employees at work.
- Customized Greetings: Welcome your customers with an outstanding greeting message whenever they call! You can use an automated greeting or easily upload a professionally recorded greeting to establish a personal connection with your customers. When customers feel personally connected to your business, they have a greater tendency to remain loyal.
- Voicemail: This feature allows voice messages to be delivered instantly to your mail. This ensures that you never miss a call or message during times when all phone lines are busy due to high call volumes. This also allows you to take down messages and call back as soon as you can with a click-to-call option.
- Call Recording: An easy to setup feature which allows users to record, save, revisit, and download calls made to a list of selected numbers at any time. Global Call Forwarding offers subscribers a “free-of-charge” call recording download for one month.
