Is your company ready for Brexit?
While the exact date and conditions of Brexit continue to be unclear, what we know for certain is that the UK's exit from the EU will have consequences. Companies might receive higher service costs due to a depreciation of the British Pound Sterling, for example. Due to legislative changes between Europe and the United Kingdom, UK service providers may even cause service disruptions. In order to safeguard operations, companies should assess whether these restrictions could affect their phone connections.
Telecommunications services could be affected by Brexit, for example international services numbers such as 0800 numbers and local numbers sources through UK telecommunications companies. TeleForwarding USA recommends that companies carefully double check the possible effects for the providers of their service numbers. "Companies rely on the fact that customers and employees can reach them, especially in uncertain times," says CEO Hans Lasonder. Because of this, companies should ensure that all telephone services in and out of the UK are working without disruptions, so that customers and employees do not encounter any issues. TeleForwarding USA recommends that companies with an international customer base transfer their international numbers. "Since our headquarters is in Europe (Amsterdam), providers such as TeleForwarding USA are not affected by changes in Brexit," explains Mr. Lasonder. "With numbers routed through Europe rather than the UK, companies will not be affected by changes in contract or rises in price. Essentially, nothing will change for the customers and users of the numbers."
