Do you need a Wisconsin phone number? Here are how other businesses like yours reap the advantages of their own virtual phone numbers.

Grow trust in Wisconsin with a local area code

Instantly build your presence in the Badger State with a local phone number. You won’t need to visit a store in Wisconsin to activate your new number and be connected to the community where you’re doing business. Your outgoing calls come with a local presence (and a business caller ID), so you’re instantly identifiable as a member of the community. Your contacts feel as comfortable answering your calls at home as cheering on the Packers in the snow.

If you’re targeting multiple cities, you can choose as many phone numbers in different area codes as you need to run your business. US, Canada, and even toll-free numbers are easy to add to an account you can access anywhere.

Work remotely and call from your Wisconsin number

With OpenPhone, you can travel outside of Wisconsin or hire a global team. It’s no problem. Your new local number always appears local no matter where you are. You may miss State Street, but you can still reach local customers virtually anywhere using a WiFi-connected device and OpenPhone’s app. When business takes you away, your business remains grounded in Wisconsin.

Share your business number with your team

OpenPhone also lets you share and manage access to your Wisconsin number. That means your entire team has easy access. You miss fewer calls and opportunities when the whole team can answer. Your team can also make outgoing calls while you’re taking a call on the same number. It’s made to be simple, like your email inbox. Everyone on the team is up-to-date, all your contacts are in a single spot, and your business communication is organized.

You can also provide specific team members with their own numbers when it’s time to add more direct lines and scale up.

Professionalize your business communication

Professional features not only make it simple to organize communication, but also provide a better customer experience with:
  • Phone menus that easily route your callers to teammates or specific information
  • Call recording for better team training
  • Set business hours to silence your device in the evening
  • Custom voicemail messages after-hours, as well as for missed calls.
  • Customer engagement tools, including sending an automatic text after missed calls.
  • These features and more let your business look and feel as professional as any cheesehead could wish for.

Why your business needs a Wisconsin phone number

Wisconsin is known for its abundant natural resources and dairy farms. And it’s true, Wisconsin’s top industries certainly include agriculture, from cheese to mink pelts, ginseng, and forestry. Plentiful food companies mean related industries also thrive here. These include organic agriculture innovations, logistics, supply chain, and manufacturing. Some of the biggest food companies make their homes here, and with regionally-grown foods, transform farm products into products that are ready to distribute internationally.

With thousands of freshwater lakes, including some Great ones, freshwater technology is also hot in Wisconsin. Water purification startups are plentiful in Wisconsin, like Biolonix, Stonehouse Water Technologies, and Microbe Detectives, which analyzes water for the DNA of pathogens to keep on top of public health threats.
