A Virtually Local number can be pointed to any UK mobile or fixed landline phone, and you can change this whenever you want, from wherever you are. There’s no need to call technical support to ask them to update your phone system, or waiting in a queue to speak to your mobile provider.

With our intuitive user interface and simple options, you can pick from a range of simple one-to-one routing or more complex time-based options, meaning phone calls can be intelligently routed to different colleagues when you’re open, or play a message advising callers of your opening hours if they try to call when you’re closed.
