Inbound Business Phone Numbers from The Phone Co-op

The way your customers contact you can be integral to the success of a business and our inbound numbering services can help. These numbers can give smaller organisations a national presence, or larger organisations geographical numbers for a local feel. 

We provide a wide range of options for managing inbound calls, from a simple single destination routing up to more complex hosted IVR’s (Interactive Voice Responses). We can use a range of number types such as 0845, 0800, 01, 02 and 03 across all our products to help your organisation encourage inbound calls and manage them efficiently.
