Post 3: International Points of Presence and Your Business Strategy
In this segment of our series, we delve into the expansive capabilities of VoIP and FreePBX when it comes to setting up international points of presence. Operating in the global market has its set of challenges, but with FreePBX, you can turn these challenges into strategic advantages.
The Global Reach of VoIP
Conventional telephony systems often constrain businesses with international aspirations. High international call rates and the hassle of setting up overseas communication infrastructure can be crippling. Enter VoIP and FreePBX. Now you can have local numbers in international markets, allowing you to establish a local presence without the need for physical infrastructure. Your international calls can ring back to your central headquarters, saving you a fortune in overseas costs.

With FreePBX, international points of presence are more than just overseas phone numbers. They’re integral to your market penetration strategy. Here’s how:
- Localized Customer Service: By providing local numbers, you offer a local touchpoint for customers, making them more comfortable in initiating interactions.

The Business Case
At the end of the day, a business needs to consider the ROI. With FreePBX, the initial investment is dwarfed by the savings and strategic advantages you gain.
