Making a virtual number work for your small business
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.
Setting yourself up for success.
Backed by expert support and assistance.
Our toll-free number gives you the flexibility to answer your business calls where and when it suits you
Your toll-free number can go with you when you’re on the move. Our call forwarding feature allows you to move easily from the office to the job site (or school pickup) without missing a call.
Is your business growing? Do you have separate people for sales and customer service? Use menu routing to help get the right calls to the right people.
Have you considered the costs of getting new phone numbers if you relocate? Updating collateral and business cards alone can cost hundreds of dollars. With a toll-free number it’s no longer a worry because you can take you toll-free number with you anywhere in the country.
Convinced digital marketing is delivering you high volumes of sales calls but want to know for sure? Use our call management reporting to determine which marketing channel is actually driving results.
