Global Call Forwarding offers features that work alongside call forwarding. For instance, time of day routing redirects calls to an alternate destination during specific times of the day. Many companies have offices in different countries and different time zones. With this feature, calls can be forwarded to a different timezone to ensure calls are always answered. This way you can ensure calls in every location are received in the most optimal times of the day. Simultaneous ringing works similarly. This feature automatically forwards calls to all lines designated to make sure that an important call doesn’t go unanswered. Calls can also be received on computers and tablets, opening further communication channels.The aim of providing such services is to make certain that businesses are always available for their customers. Large and small companies can gain customers’ trust by providing multiple channels of communication. An enterprise that is difficult to get a hold of can easily lose a customer’s interest. Your customers should know you care about their time and concerns.

How Can Call Forwarding and Virtual Numbers Help Your Business?
For any business or enterprise, it is highly important to build and maintain professionalism in the market. This can be done in a variety of ways: with an appropriate business name, professional and ethical practices, resourceful and genuine products, an informational website. Another way to promote professionalism is through a business phone number. Most customers’ first interaction with your company will be through your phone number. Because of this, you want to ensure you have a reliable phone service provider and features that will improve communication.
Virtual phone numbers don’t only provide call forwarding services but also offer features that create a professional image of your company. Global Call Forwarding provides interactive voice response (IVR) which is most useful for inbound calling. IVR is an automated voice that greets your callers and then presents them with a variety of options. For example, “Thank you for calling [company name]. Press 1 for English, Press 2 for Spanish” and so on. You can customize this to fit your enterprise’s needs. If your company has a high volume of incoming calls, having an IVR system helps customers navigate through a menu of options to resolve their issues or reach the right department. This shows your customer that you are serious about your business and want to make customer service easier.
Keeping Call Records
Voicemail or Voicemail to Fax ensures that voicemails are never missed, while also saving them for future reference. Call recording is most helpful for call centers because calls can be recorded for training and performance purposes. These features provide information and data that can be used to improve communications between the company and its employees.
Marketing Your Business
Virtual numbers can also be used as marketing tools. You can customize your number to better fit your company in a unique and eye-catching way. These numbers are called vanity numbers. Vanity numbers make your number memorable and recognizable with patterns or letters. For example, 888-944-9444 or 1-800-LAWYERS. You can advertise this number on billboards, marketing emails, flyers, websites, etc. Customers will often become familiar with not just the number but also the business, allowing your number to stick in their minds and recognizing your business as prominent in your industry.
