How can a Cheltenham virtual city number help you?

Virtual city numbers are useful for businesses of any kind and any size, thanks to their versatility and wide-ranging benefits:

  1. Test new areas before you invest financially

Moving into a new area is an excellent way to reach new customers, expand your position within the market, and, of course, increase possible profits.

But it’s not without significant investment, of both time and money – which makes it a risky move for businesses of any size.

Using a competitively priced 01242 number from GTele allows you to accurately gauge your popularity and build interest from customers in Cheltenham before you invest in the expensive stuff like sites, stock, and staff – so you can be sure you are making the best decision for your business before making the leap.


  1. Choose from a large selection of value-added extras

Although GTele specialises in quality call forwarding for 01242 phone numbers, you can also choose to include a variety of value-added services that can help give your business a more professional edge and improve your telecommunication for customers. These include but are not limited to:

  • Queue callers – place callers in queues and play music while they wait.
  • Personalised welcome greetings – greet visitors or potential customers with pre-recorded messages.
  • Recorded voicemail services – record a personalised message and receive all voicemails to your email.
  • Call diversion – choose which number or numbers can take your calls when you are busy.
  • Time-based routing – choose which numbers your calls will be diverted to based on the time of day.

This way, you can give your customers the benefits of a call centre-style service without the worry and expense of outsourcing to a third party.
