Get a local phone number for every city where you do business—even if you’re not physically located there
With Alltel’s Local Connect Numbers, any business can have a “local” phone number (e.g. 02. 03, 07) in any major Australian city—no matter where they are located.
That means that if your office is in Sydney, you’re not limited to using 02 phone numbers.
You can advertise “local” numbers in Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth to attract customers from around the country. All calls made to those virtual numbers can be automatically forwarded to your business phone(s) in Sydney.
You can also upgrade to Local Connect Plus Call recording, which adds Call Recording.
How do Local Connect numbers work?
An Alltel Local Connect number is a computerised “inbound” number that can be directed to any phone you choose including a landline, mobile, VoIP, fax or live answering service. You can even ring multiple phones at the same time.
There’s no need to install new phone lines: you answer the calls on your existing phones.
These virtual phone numbers are for receiving incoming calls only—you still use your regular phone to make outgoing calls.
Local Connect Numbers are compatible with 1300 and 1800 Numbers, so in addition to advertising Local Connect numbers to your customers directly, you can also use them as answer points for your 1300 and 1800 Numbers.
