In this blog post, we particularly talk about South Korea, a country that is considered to be most innovative in terms of technology as well as a global business and a significant Asian marketplace for importers and exporters. Naturally, consumers of this market have attracted the eyeballs of a variety of businesses worldwide. In case, if you are working towards extending your business here, this post will give important insights on mobile communications accessibility aspects.

Now that you are set to enter the South Korean market, all that you want is more and more people in the new city to talk about your business; come to you seeking further details and eventually, buy your product or services. Ergo, the quickest mode to receive buyer queries is ‘phone calls’. You can leave a contact number in your advertisements, where your South Korean prospective clients can call you as soon as they come to know about you.

However, given that you are based outside the South Korean city or country, the local Korean buyers would be less likely of calling your international number. Plus, you cannot wait till you set up a regional office and get a virtual phone number. Then, the best idea is to set up a +82 coded South Korean virtual phone number for your business.

The excellent benefits of having an online number

  • Lesser or no charges translate to more inquiries. The caller pays regionally applicable charges to him if any. This way you can entice the callers who would turn away seeing international calling charges.
  • An easier way to ensure that you are quickly reachable and access the technology-savvy consumer base of South Korea.
  • Your online number establishes your virtual presence, thus increasing the consumer faith in you.
  • The cost-effective telephony can save you some serious money.
  • Virtual numbers in your business communication network are the best tools to boost customer relationships and acquire more sales.
  • The online number won’t have any physical attachment; hence you can operate them even without setting up an office in the region.

Features that optimize your communication

  • International call forwarding: This feature allows you to forward a locally made call to any number worldwide.
  • Some technology providers will allow you to forward calls on any landline number, fax, PBX station, or even VoIP.
  • Call recording
  • Routing of calls
  • Call details and history
  • You can set greeting messages for callers and send them bits of recorded information about your company.
  • Background music would replace the irritating machine sounds while callers are on hold.
  • Voice mail facilities to collect multiple calls and messages at one single place
  • Interactive voice response (IVR) where the system interacts with callers and directs them to a particular department or person.
  • And everything that technology has to offer you.
