Non geographic numbers do not correspond to a specific geographic location, so incoming calls can target any existing landline or mobile telephone number.
Flexible call routing
These numbers are allocated and managed by you so you can route calls intelligently to a location with the available resources to handle them effectively to help you manage out-of-hours or busy periods together with call queuing facilities and optional automated attendant announcements. Calls can be dynamically routed to different destinations according to:
- Time of day
- Day of week
- Caller’s location
- Nature of call
- Volume of calls
Non geographic numbers are completely portable, so if a business needs to relocate, or for business continuity in the event of fire, flood, etc., the published number can be transferred seamlessly from one number to another without loss of service.
