Introduce a brand new revenue stream to your business

From July 2015 the way calls to 0845 numbers are charged is changing. The result being that all network operators now earn revenue of each minute incoming calls received. This not only enables us to offer an 0845 service for free, but also share this revenue with our customers if they produce over 500 inbound minutes per month.

Benefits of Using an 0845 Number

Advertise a national presence

Using an 0845 number means that you can advertise a national presence regardless of your company size or location. 0845 numbers allow you to disguise your location. You could be based in Leeds, and advertise to customers in London. Your calls can be pointed to any number in the world, contact us for details.

Disaster Recovery

Don’t allow your business calls to be affected by natural disasters or un-expected events. If you or staff can’t make it into the office you won’t lose any business through missed calls. As 0845 numbers are virtual you can change where you answer the calls at any time.

Highly memorable numbers

We have hundreds of 0845 numbers available to choose from online, we’re sure you will be able to find a memorable business number to suit you. Choose from our bronze, silver and gold numbers on our website or speak to an account manager if you are looking for a specific number sequence.

Make a home based business look highly professional

Many of our customers don’t have a fixed office location. Many work on the road or have a business based at home. An 0845 number can be pointed to your mobile or home landline, with professional services attached.

Move address without changing number

If you find your business moving location there is no need to go through the hard work of informing your customers of a new telephone number. Simply change your destination number and there will be no down time on calls to your 0845 number.

Campaign performance tracking

Our call statistics feature allows you to track calls to each 0845 number to use. Our reports allow you to view the amount of calls and their duration.
