What are 0871 virtual numbers?


0871 numbers are numbers which aren’t connected to a landline. Not being tied to a landline gives virtual numbers great flexibility for you to control how and where you receive your calls.


When anyone calls your 0871 number, the call comes into our advanced call management platform and from there the call is sent to wherever you want it to: a landline, a mobile, a VoIP device or even an international number. This all happens in an instant so your caller will have no idea they’re calling a virtual number. For example:

  • Customer calls
    01/02 number

  • Call answered at target
    office or mobile phone

  • Call is routed to
    our platform

Our online dashboard gives you real-time control of your numbers and gives you access to a wealth of features to help you to use your numbers most effectively. You can change where your number points to at the click of a button, get detailed statistics on your numbers and add extra features on demand.


How can 0871 numbers help your business?


  • Earn a REBATE of 5p per minute excluding VAT on all incoming calls which are redirected to a landline number. Great to use for call centres or customer service lines to help contribute to the costs of operation.
  • Project a more professional image by advertising a nationwide number instead of a mobile.
  • Attract more business from outside your local area.
  • FREE call forwarding to mobiles. **
  • Gives your business the perception of being a larger organisation.
  • Low cost for customers to call. Calls to our 0871 numbers cost just 13p per minute including VAT plus your phone company’s access charge.
  • Control how and where incoming calls are handled to suit you.
  • Use the detailed call analytics to see how many calls are received on each number and how effectively your call handling team are performing.
  • Improve business efficiency by getting your phone calls to trigger a whole range of system automations.

“Invoco’s website is so easy to use and I am no technical expert!”

I currently use Invoco for call tracking numbers so I can see when people actually ring the numbers on my adverts, website etc. I can now measure which marketing campaigns are generating my sales leads and therefore which campaigns are working and which aren’t. Invoco’s website is so easy to use and I am no technical expert! Analysing the call data is straightforward too. Costs are really competitive, and the guys from Invoco are really nice and hugely helpful!

“If you are not already using call tracking numbers, you really should be.”

I had heard call tracking mentioned before the convention and have always been hugely frustrated by advertising without knowing whether I was getting a decent ROI, so I took the opportunity at the convention to visit Invoco’s stand and sign up for their offer. Within 2 months I had purchased extra numbers and can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner. Not only has it helped me gauge my ROI on various advertising streams but even the ROI of members of my team responsible for running those streams! The Invoco site is incredibly straightforward to use and gives you all the information you need to measure the effectiveness of your adverts. If you are not already using call tracking numbers, you really should be.”
