Leaving your current phone number behind can be a real wrench. If you've ever moved house or business premises or changed provider after owning a phone number for some time, you'll appreciate just how easy it is to become attached to those digits.
If your number is a vanity number or suitably memorable number, it can even play an integral part in your brand identity and day to day business life. In those situations, leaving your phone number behind when you change offices might just not be an option for your business.
Luckily with our Cloud-based VoIP phone solution it's easy to bring your phone number with you.
