Our flexible telephone numbers are virtual numbers powered by our own Secure Cloud Telecoms™ service, meaning they'll keep you connected independently of any mobile network, landline and geographic location.

Work anywhere, seamlessly. Save valuable office space and on electricity and maintenance costs. Host conference calls. Launch one-off campaigns using disposable numbers. Measure performance with call recording and statistics.

Our Secure Cloud Telecoms™ service is safe, scalable and high-performance, as well as being easy to set up without disrupting your current systems - and without costing the Earth.

Get the right number for the right job

Is your mobile number also your business phone line?
You're losing customers!

Research shows that people don't trust businesses to deliver a professional service if they use mobile numbers. Using the right number increases your credibility and advertising impact. It actually helps your business grow.

          • 01 and 02 numbers reassure people that you're local.
          • 03 numbers present a UK-wide appearance and cost the same to call as local numbers.
          • 08 are nationally recognised business numbers, helping you appear larger and more established.

At Flextel we offer the full range of virtual numbers to fit every purpose and budget. It's easy to create your ideal combination of convenience and professionalism.

Best of all, there's no need to change the way you answer your business calls... all our numbers work on mobiles!
