Why have a 01245 virtual phone number?
When you need an 01245 Chelmsford virtual phone number for your new startup business, for advertising in the local Chelmsford papers or any other reason then Number People have the 01245 phone number for you.
What is a virtual phone number?
01245 Chelmsford virtual phone numbers are the same as standard BT 01245 telephone numbers, except they are hosted in the cloud and do not point to a physical telephone line.
01245 virtual phone numbers are allocated by Ofcom in the same way that BT 01245 telephone line numbers are, and are allocated across all UK 01245s.
How does it work?
When a call is received by your 01245 Chelmsford virtual phone number then our network immediately forwards this to the destination phone numbers that you have selected.
01245 Chelmsford virtual phone numbers from Number People are built to handle multiple calls at once, unlike BT 01245 landline numbers which can only handle 1 call at a time.
This means that your calls are always answered and callers never hear the engaged tone, so you never miss another important customer call again.
Fully detailed call records as well as call stats are available from the mobile optimised web portal.
