Botswana Virtual Numbers Make Perfect Business Sense

Botswana TwilightLocated in the southern portion of the African continent, Botswana is a stable democracy with over two million residents. The nation has two official languages: English and Tswana. Botswana’s economy is largely powered by the mining industry with gemstones and precious minerals in abundance. Large deposits of uranium were recently discovered.

Whether you’re in the mining, tourism, manufacturing, or services industry, if you do business with partners and customers in Botswana, you may find it advantageous to get Botswana virtual numbers to facilitate international communications.

What is a Botswana Virtual Number?

A Botswana virtual number is virtual in the sense that it is not physically tied to any given location or phone. When you order a virtual number, you will be prompted to select the “ring to” number, which is the number where any incoming calls will be forwarded to.

For example, if you set your Botswana virtual number to ring to your office in New York City, that’s where all of your calls from Botswana will ring.

It’s important to note that your Botswana virtual number looks and acts like any other toll free number in Botswana. Your callers within Botswana will not need to do anything special in order to reach your New York office. There are no Botswana exit codes or USA country codes to figure out and enter, and there are no worries about dialing a foreign country. In fact, your Botswana callers may not even realize that their phone calls are being answered on the other side of the Atlantic.

Because your number is virtual, you can also change its ring to number as needed. For example, if you’d rather have your London office handle all incoming calls from Botswana, you could change your ring to number to your London office’s number.

Our Botswana virtual numbers come with all kinds of features that you can use to get the most out of your service including:

  • Time of day routing
  • Optional call recording
  • Local ringtones
  • Forward-fax
  • Simultaneous ringing
  • Customized greeting and voicemail
  • Advanced voice response system
  • And much more

Month-to-month Botswana virtual number plans are available, all without contracts.

Why Use a Botswana Virtual Number?

We can think of many reasons to use a Botswana virtual number. Below are just a few:

  • Provide customers with a toll free means of reaching your main office or customer service center
  • Establish a local presence in Botswana without the expense of setting up a satellite office
  • Create a 24-hour toll free hotline
  • Centralize your customer service or tech support operations

Improve Your Bahrain Consulting Business with Virtual Call Forwarding Numbers

Toll free numbers, in general, add credibility to any business. Thus, getting a Bahrain toll free number further cements your reputation.

Bahrain Sunset IndustrialDo you offer business consulting services to clients located in Bahrain?

Virtual call forwarding numbers are a great way to improve communications – and your business as a whole.

Why Use Bahrain Virtual Phone Numbers?

As you know, there are many ways to deliver consulting services. If you’re located outside of Bahrain with clients inside the country, options include: in-person (which requires traveling to Bahrain and incurring associated travel costs), videoconferencing (which requires both parties to have videoconferencing equipment), Skype (which requires Skype accounts and webcams), and phone calls (which requires international phone calls).

Each of the above options has its downsides which tend to fall into two categories: expensive or equipment required. Using Bahrain virtual call forwarding is an alternative that immediately puts your clients at ease.

Here’s how it works:

  • Get a Bahrain virtual phone number – You can either get a toll free number for Bahrain or a local one with the 973 area code. Either way, your clients will view this virtual phone number as being local because it is local to their country.
  • Set up your ring to number – Because it’s a “virtual” phone number, your Bahrain call forwarding number can ring to any phone number in the world that you designate as its ring to number. This can be your office phone number in Los Angeles, California, your hotel room phone number in Bali, your personal mobile phone, or any other phone you may use. You can even change your ring to number as needed.
  • Give your Bahrain virtual call forwarding phone number to your clients – Whether you’re prospecting for customers, scheduling consultations, or leaving a message asking for a returned phone call, give out your Bahrain virtual phone number.

How Bahrain Virtual Phone Numbers Enhance Your Credibility

As global as the business world has become, there’s still an aversion to dialing international phone numbers. In some cases, there’s a legitimate concern about the potential cost of placing an international call. In others, there’s uncertainty about how to make the call because international phone numbers look different from domestic ones. In others, there may even be a preference for working with someone local.

By getting a Bahrain virtual call forwarding number, you’ll circumvent all of these concerns. Your clients will be likely to perceive you as being serious about serving the Bahrain market. After all, if you’ve gone through the trouble of establishing a Bahrain presence, you won’t be “here today, gone tomorrow.”

Toll free numbers, in general, add credibility to any business. Thus, getting a Bahrain toll free number further cements your reputation.

With Bahrain virtual call forwarding, you can build a communications channel that works for all of your clients while also adding credibility to your business.

Improve Service with Virtual Phone Numbers Featuring Automatic Call Recording

For example, if you need to record an interview, ask the person you’re interviewing to call you on your virtual phone number with automatic call recording enabled.

Virtual Number Automatic Phone Call RecordingVirtual phone numbers are ideal for routing calls from various locations across the country — or around the world — to a centralized call center. In fact, you may already be using virtual phone numbers to do just that.

As you know, virtual phone numbers can reduce your costs, establish a local business presence in locations far and wide, and improve operational efficiency.

By adding automatically call recording to the mix, your virtual phone numbers can help to improve service.

Here’s what you need to know about our new automatic call recording add-on.

  • Call recording is an affordable, optional add-on — Rather than investing in recording equipment or upgrading your phone system, you can get the benefits of automatic call recording by adding it as a service to your virtual phone numbers. It costs just a few dollars per month per virtual phone number. If you find that call recording is not for you, you can cancel the add-on at any time with no penalties.
  • Virtual phone number call recording is flexible — Do you want to record all incoming calls over your virtual phone number or just a small percentage? Simply set up your preference and let the call recording system do its work.

Why Enable Automatic Call Recording?

Businesses use call recording for several reasons including CSR training, compliance assurance, and opportunity mining. For example, one of the best ways to evaluate your customer service representatives is by listening in. Whether you record every call as it comes through your virtual phone number or opt to record one out of ten, you’ll have plenty of recordings for each CSR to listen to.

Does your CSR answer promptly? Greet the customer correctly? Sound professional and knowledgeable? Follow the script correctly? Build rapport with customers? Solve problems satisfactorily? The answers to these questions can be found in your call recordings.

Periodically listening to call recordings can also help you keep the pulse of your business, learn about potential opportunities, and more. For example, it’s not unusual for customers to talk about your competitors when they speak with your staff, but that information doesn’t always find its way back to upper management. By listening to your virtual phone numbers’ call recordings, you may gain insight into your competitors’ offers or trends affecting your industry.

Using automatic call recording with your virtual phone numbers can also help you comply with various legislation, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, that require electronic records of business transactions. For compliance purposes, you’ll want to set up your automatic call recording feature so that it records all incoming calls to your virtual phone number automatically. You’ll also want to upgrade to long-term storage of your recorded phone calls or arrange to store your recordings permanently.

Many of our customers have come up with creative uses for automatic call recording with their virtual phone numbers. For example, if you need to record an interview, ask the person you’re interviewing to call you on your virtual phone number with automatic call recording enabled. How will you use your call recording feature?
