What are Virtual Numbers?

Making a virtual number work for your small business

Virtual Numbers

Virtual Numbers are standard landline phone numbers that don’t need a physical connection at your address. These numbers are “hosted” at the telephone exchange, and can be linked to any other number around the world.

Reach across New Zealand with a virtual number, and give your business a massive boost.

No matter how small your business happens to be, a virtual local or national number is a terrific way to project a professional image to every caller, giving the impression of scale and gravitas.

Zintel offers both toll-free and local inbound numbers backed by a comprehensive range of call management features to optimise your business functions.

Benefits of Virtual Numbers

  • Select an 0508 or 0800 toll-free number.
  • Get your business seen in every New Zealand region.
  • Keep your virtual number wherever you move in New Zealand.
  • Welcome callers professionally every time with a customised greeting.
  • Route calls anywhere mobile, voicemail or staff members.
