How do I get a business phone number?

A business phone number can be broken into three different types:

  • Local Area Number
  • 1300 Local Call Number
  • 1800 Toll Free Number
  • 13 Smart Number

For most businesses, a Local Area Number makes the most sense. These are the numbers that you are most used to, that usually have a 08 89xx xxxx or 08 79xx xxxx numbering. 

When you get a Local Area Number, you unlock the ability to use a Business Phone System. Mawson Tech uses the 3cx phone system, because we have determined that it is the best for small-medium business and has the most features as well as the best pricing.

Business Phone System

You should get a Business Phone System for your business as soon as you grow beyond 1-2 employees, because at this point, you are likely to need the features that a Business Phone System unlocks:

  • Transfer calls to other people
  • A call queue, so that people dont have to keep ringing
  • Automated Voice Menu, also called ‘IVR’
  • Ability to use desk phones instead of mobile phones
  • Call other people internally for free

With a Business Phone System, incoming calls are free, so the charges end up being very reasonable for the amount of features that are unlocked.

Desk phones for business now mostly support Wifi and work with no local hardware, which means you can install them just about anywhere.
