International phone numbers for your call center
Acquire international numbers (with geographic or non-geographic codes) from more than 140 countries. Local phone numbers allow customers from abroad to call you at standard local rates or free of charge.
With CloudTalk’s international numbers feature, you can acquire phone numbers from more than 140 countries around the world. So if your company operates in several countries, each country can have its own phone number (e.g. US numbers in the USA, British numbers in the UK, etc.) which allows you to provide your clients with services from familiar numbers.
It is entirely up to you whether you opt for international numbers with geographic codes (e.g. 01 for Paris, 020 for London, etc.) or non-geographic codes. Numbers with geographic codes tend to be more clear and familiar for customers because they instantly know that the call will be charged at a local rate, which eliminates uncertainty.
Use international numbers and make your customer support solution more efficient for international inbound calls. It’s also a cheaper option for receiving international calls.
Get local or toll-free phone numbers from multiple countries or port your existing phone numbers. This feature enables you to expand your team of agents and become a global provider with better customer support.
With CloudTalk, you can route international numbers anywhere within the country, so you can expand your customer base without having to move your offices.
Customer support solution with geographic phone numbers
Route your incoming calls from designated regions or countries to the right agent or group of agents based on their qualification, expertise and language skills.
Directing calls to the most optimal agent improves the quality of your service, customer satisfaction and allows your agents to effectively address customer needs.
Call statistics by phone number
In CloudTalk, you can filter call statistics by phone number. With comprehensive statistics related to specific phone numbers, you can optimize your call center workflows, such as:
- boost agent performance
- increase sales and reduce costs of your business
- improve customer support processes and foster overall customer satisfaction
Based on these metrics, you can make better business decisions.
For example, if you have e-commerce operating in two (or more) countries, you can view separate call statistics for each country and even for each phone number within the country.
