The modern business landscape is global, operates at a breakneck pace, and finds customers expecting more service in less time than ever before. That means that each channel a business interfaces with its customers and partners over needs to be optimized for all of those factors. One of the most critical channels that often gets overlooked in the light of improving web page design and enhanced connection speed is the business telephone number. In fact, almost 60% of all callers to a business want to discuss pricing on the first contact. And considering that pricing questions are one of the strongest buying signals, it doesn’t take Gordon Gekko to realize that the opportunity to get a call right is critical. To do get the right interactions on a telephone call, businesses need to have the right telephone numbers, first. But getting the right business telephone numbers is more than just signing up for a business phone service. That’s why we’ve put together the following infographic with examples of the different types of numbers you can have and how they can benefit your business. Plus, with hundreds of thousands of numbers from over 140 countries and true 800 toll-free numbers to choose from, VirtualPBX has exactly the right business telephone number for your business.

Peldon Rose designed this 15,500 sq ft luxurious office space with a 1920’s inspired glass atrium, gold and silver fixtures, and a Weber Grand Piano. The Mayfair office delivers nothing short of a bespoke experience for its clients, however, they should expect to pay a hefty price for this one-of-a-kind, white glove experience.
5. Klique Desk located in Bangkok, Thailand
The Shinawatra building remained empty for 30 years until K2 Design and Studio of Design and Architecture gave it a new identity.

The design radiates optimism in both private and open settings.
