O2 lends a helping hand to businesses

23 July 2009 — 3:00 PM

A new service has been launched by O2 to enable small businesses to take calls on their mobile phone through a landline number.

Fixed Number Anywhere is aimed at those who need to take calls from their landline while on the go, without having to divert them.

Up to ten employees can have the numbers linked up to their mobile devices, which the network believes will minimise the chance of calls being missed.

"Desk phones were great when business was done from a desk but for the vast majority of small businesses the fixed nature of a landline is at odds with how they operate day-to-day," commented head of marketing for small and medium-sized businesses at O2 Simon Devonshire.

The news comes as a recent O2 recently signed a deal with Twitter to offer text alerts to its customers when chosen friends update their statuses on the micro-blogging site.
