Not every Alabama business needs a local presence. However, there are plenty of good reasons to contact customers with a local Alabama phone number. Here are some reasons why:

Customers trust local businesses

Although we’re used to dealing with national and international businesses, people are excited to spend money in their local economies, growing their communities and supporting their neighbors.

Sweet home Alabama? Locals tend to think so. So when you’re using a local area code, customers can see you as a community member. That makes them more likely to reach out and support your business, not to mention pick up the phone when you call.

Need virtual numbers for different cities and states? OpenPhone lets you add as many as you like, including US, Canada, and toll-free numbers.

Distributed teams can use the same Alabama phone number

You can use a virtual phone system from anywhere, even if you’re not near Mobile Bay, Huntsville, or anywhere in between.

Remote teams can use the cloud-based virtual system via an app using the internet connection on a laptop or mobile device. That means that anywhere you travel or work, OpenPhone allows you to place and accept calls from your Alabama phone number.

Keep your conversations in one place

Without OpenPhone, your business calls, voicemails, and texts can be mixed with personal calls on your cell phone. You may also be missing out on having work conversations accessible to specific members of your team. If you want to forward calls while busy on-site with a customer, it’s tough with traditional business numbers.

OpenPhone keeps incoming calls and text conversations in one place. You can share access with the rest of your team, so you’re able to answer every opportunity that comes calling.

Professional phone features

Small businesses never want to miss a call, but they can’t always handle juggling personal and business calls at all hours. OpenPhone helps them solve this problem:
  • External caller ID, to professionally let people know who’s returning their call.
  • Phone menus, so customers can reach exactly who they need when they call a main line.
  • Call recording for better training and more consistent customer service.
  • Synced contacts so all your team members can find the right customer information.
  • Auto-replies, so missed and after-hours calls get the attention they deserve.
  • Batched, round-robin answering so that calls aren’t left unanswered.
