Does your business need an Ohio phone number? There are several reasons why it might make sense for you. Here are a few reasons a virtual phone system can be worth it:

Be a good neighbor with a local area code

Small businesses have a lot of customer trust, and part of that’s their local presence. Startups can be good neighbors, too, by targeting local customers to assure customers they understand their needs and are Buckeye boosters just like them. Customers who recognize your Ohio phone number find it easier to call you — and are more likely to answer your calls.

If you need different numbers around the country and in Canada, even toll-free numbers, OpenPhone lets you add those, too.

Remote teams can use your Ohio business phone number anywhere

Even if you’re out of state, you can use your Ohio phone number. The number is virtual and works with any internet connection, so you can access it while traveling or working remotely from most places across the globe. OpenPhone’s platform helps distributed teams and even international businesses maintain a local presence.

Share and restrict access to phone numbers

work from anywhere in the world, use the same local phone number simultaneously, view and respond to the same text conversations through an online app, and see your growing contact list.

When employees need their own lines, you can set up user-friendly phone menus so that customers always get what they need. Team members can access any of the numbers you want them to. It’s easy to have control as your business grows.

Look professional to your Ohio customers

OpenPhone gives startups the advantage of looking large, organized, and professional for their prospects with extensive business features. You get access to custom voice greetings that change based on time (after-hours) or circumstance (missed calls).

There are even more features for businesses included as well. Voicemail transcriptions help you save time on new incoming messages. Call recording helps you train your workers better. Outgoing caller ID alerts your customers that you’re calling from your business rather than just an unknown number. It all adds up to a telephone number that helps you grow professionally.
