Making a Local Virtual Number work for your small business
Local Virtual Numbers
A Local Virtual Number tells your customers your business is established and reputable. But there are other reasons why big companies use them. Firstly, they let your customers dial you from anywhere in New Zealand for the cost of a local call. They are also easier for your customers to remember, and make your life simpler by providing one phone number for your business.
With a Local Virtual Number, you can conveniently answer calls from any phone line in New Zealand. You have the flexibility of being able to route your number to any landline or mobile number. Another unique thing is that the Local Virtual number is only for inbound calls, not outbound calls. You’ll be charged depending on whether the call is connected from a landline or mobile.

No additional software/app or hardware needed. Works through your current mobile/landline provider. Doesn’t require an internet connection.
Difference between a Local Virtual Number and a local phone number
A local phone number is a traditional landline (with landline rentals) where you can do both inbound and outbound calling. A Local Virtual number allows you to have a local area code number, but have all inbound calls (not outbound calls) forwarded to a mobile or landline in another region.
Local Number Types
Become fully portable with your number
Easy Choose from a list of main city phone numbers:
A Local Virtual Number is a local phone number that isn’t tied to a physical device and accepts incoming calls only. This means you can advertise as though you have a local presence, and have your calls forwarded to a device you already have such as your mobile or another landline. A Local Virtual Number allows you to operate as a local business without the costs associated with traditional line rental.

Local Virtual Number benefits that will change your business
An 0800 number is more memorable, more professional, and more attractive for prospective customers.
Avoid that sinking feeling of a missed call and no message. That next call could be your next big client.
Appear local when you can be located anywhere in the world. And having an area code means international customers can also call, unlike with other inbound numbers.
Keep your number even if you relocate
Whether it’s the growth of your team or a change of location, you’ll always be able to be reached on the same phone number.
No physical landline rental needed
Don’t pay for landline rental (usually $35) on a physical phone line. Save money and don’t be tied down by a physical landline.
Too often we speak with customers who are doing a great job but missing important phone calls. Sound familiar? Missed calls really affect new businesses because in the early days you’re still building your reputation and relying on every sale.
Luckily the frustration of missed calls is preventable and easy to fix with Zintel. We can make such a difference to your small business. With our knowledge, support and services, we’ll help you look big, feel professional, and put an end to your calls going to your competitors.
