DUBLIN, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

£50 cash back incentive to move phone and fax numbers to eReceptionist and eFax

j2 Global, a leading provider of cloud business services for UK businesses, today announced that it is offering a £50 cash back incentive for new UK customers switching to eReceptionist and eFax services this summer*. The Move My Number promotion ensures businesses can switch to the eReceptionist and eFax services they require, whilst keeping their existing landline numbers but without incurring the expense of line rental charges or the disruption normally associated with such administrative changes - no new business card or stationary changes are required.

Switching to eReceptionist is perfect for individuals or businesses to answer or route their calls professionally, without needing to hire an extra employee. The 'virtual' receptionist provides reliable, private voice services with all the advanced features of an expensive phone system, like call scheduling which actively diverts calls to mobiles or colleagues when you can't take a call, all from as little as 30p a day.

For those needing fax services, eFax provides a cost-effective alternative to a traditional fax machine. By switching to the cloud-based eFax service, users receive fax messages as an email, potentially saving themselves more than £500 annually on the cost of hardware, paper and toner.**

A dedicated j2 Move My Number support team are on hand to talk any business through the switching process, and they can start your switch with a five minute call. In return, j2 Global will give businesses £30 for moving a number to eReceptionist, and £20 when they switch an existing line to eFax.

Eric Foster, EU Marketing Director, j2 Global says: "For businesses with established customer bases, the thought of having to change your number and potentially lose loyal customers can sometimes be enough to deter you from switching to a better suited phone and fax service. But a professionally answered telephone service with call forwarding options can significantly boost growth prospects. Research shows that almost two-thirds of customers won't leave a message if they can't connect first time to a business, potentially leading to lost business and revenues. Moving over your existing number is simple with our dedicated team providing the support necessary to complete your move. With thousands of UK businesses already benefiting from eReceptionist and eFax services, and with this added incentive for existing businesses, many more will benefit from using a virtual receptionist service and the security and convenience of eFax."

To contact the j2 Move My Number team, call Freephone 0800 689 2100 (Monday to Friday 8.00am to 5.00pm) or send an email to portrequest@j2.com.

* The £50 cash back incentive is only available to new customers and valid until 31 August 2013. Terms and conditions apply.
