Make Numbers Work For You

May 12, 2022

Can I keep my number?

This is one of the most common questions we hear and is a source of some anxiety for businesses that want or need to upgrade their office phone system to Microsoft Teams Phone, or other providers. But there’s no need to worry! Whether you want to keep your existing number(s), are expanding your call-in options or are starting from scratch, we’ve worked with hundreds of businesses and will help find the best solution for you and your business.

Make Numbers Work For You

The telephone number that you choose for your business can be a useful tool. It can support your brand message, create an impression for your customer, or just be easy to remember. And if you’re an established business, you’ll want to avoid confusion amongst existing customers by changing your number when you upgrade your phone system.

PurpleUC can provide a wide range of geographic (01/02) and non-geographic (0333/0800) numbers which can be used in conjunction with either an existing telephone system or a new IP telephone system (such as Microsoft Teams Phone, 3CX or Swyx).

Whether you are a sole trader simply wanting an 0800 number to encourage new business, or a larger company wanting to investigate regional marketing by using local numbers, we can help.


Did You Know?

0800 and 0808 numbers are recognised by over 90% of people as free to call, and can significantly increase your telephone enquiries.

0333 and 0330 numbers are often free to call (or at least low cost), portray a professional image, and give the impression that your business operates nationwide.

01 and 02 local numbers can now be completely virtual, give the impression that your business is local to a specific area, and can be used to monitor marketing campaigns.

0844 and 0870 numbers can be used to generate a revenue from the calls that you receive, via a rebate.
