For a company, having an international phone number in France can be very useful. After all, even if thanks to the internet, communicating becomes much easier, the results offered by telecommunication are much more efficient. It is thus quite naturally that virtual telephony was born. A concept that allows companies to call or send SMS directly to their contacts.
But what is the purpose of an international telephone number? Few companies are currently aware of this. We propose to you, thanks to this complete file on the subject, to discover the answer of Octopush to this question.
But first, what is an international phone number?
By definition, an international phone number is a phone number that can contact numbers from all over the world. If we stick to this definition, we could conclude that all numbers are international. However, this is not the case since normal numbers have this functionality, but are priced at exorbitant rates. This is not at all practical.
Hence the invention of the international virtual phone number. A number that is neither associated with a particular phone line nor a specific device. To communicate via this number, you no longer need a fixed line and a SIM card. The notion of an international virtual number comes from the fact that thanks to this number, you ensure international coverage. This is a considerable advantage for any company that is internationalized or wants to become international.
What are the features of the international virtual phone number?
International virtual numbers are able to provide all the normal functions of a telephone number. That is to say, mainly to call and send SMS. However, it should be noted that some providers focus on specific features.
For example, since companies mainly use virtual lines to send and receive SMS, at Octopush, we only focus on this functionality. With our services, your company will be able to easily rent virtual numbers to ensure a good conversational service.
Why use an international phone number to send SMS to your contacts in France?
First of all, note that communication by SMS is a source of many advantages for a company. Therefore, sending SMS remains your best option to ensure the deliverability and readability of your messages. Indeed, if you use other channels, such as social networks for example, it is possible that your customers, partners or other third parties do not even take note of your message.
Of course, using SMS as your main channel of exchange is not free. And sending messages to foreign contacts is not free either, it is even much more expensive when using normal numbers. Fortunately, there are currently virtual number rental providers offering affordable prices and providing quality services. One of them is Octopush.
