Most popular business phone line types
Cloud-based phone systems are of many types, based on the number of lines available. Here’s a snapshot of the most popular types of small business phone lines:
Business line for cell phones
A business line for cell phones is the perfect choice for small teams, microbusinesses, and entrepreneurs who are always on the go or work out of virtual offices. In addition to a personal line, you can add a business line and manage the accounts separately. The app is compatible with Android as well as iOS devices.
2-line business phone line
A 2-line business phone line, true to its name, has two separate lines for making and receiving calls. If your business doesn’t expect a flood of calls to come in, this type is ideal for you. It is often the preferred choice for small business owners with two to four employees and those who operate out of home offices.
4-line business phone line
With four separate business lines, this type is for small businesses and start-ups with five or more employees. It also suits certain industries where the number of simultaneous calls is higher than average. For instance, retail shops, hospitality start-ups like restaurants and hotels, etc. would require a 4-line business phone line to manage online orders and bookings.
Multi-line phone systems for small businesses (5+lines)
It’s best that small businesses who offer communication-centric services (small-scale call centres, teleconsultation service providers, etc.) opt for multiple lines based on their requirements. Small-size healthcare facilities, pharmacies, insurance agencies, etc. would also benefit from multi-line phone systems for small businesses.
Business Phone Line FAQs
What is a business phone line?
A business phone line is a telephone connection or a system of multiple connections with features designed for businesses, such as call waiting, routing, transferring, and more. It derives the name from days of analogue systems when communications were transferred in the form of signals through a copper ‘line’. Today, with the advent of VoIP devices and cloud-based platforms, business phone lines work over the internet.
How many business phone lines does my business need?
Well, it depends on factors such as the number of employees, number of calls to be handled at a time, and the nature of your business. Typically, small businesses require a 2-line phone line or a 4-line phone line. However, if your business relies heavily on communication – teleconsultation, tele-ordering, and similar services – you might require a multi-line phone system with more than four lines.
Why should small businesses add a phone line to their cell phone?
For small businesses, adding a business phone line to your cell phone is one of the fastest and cost-effective ways to manage communications. Unlike a desk phone, it allows you to make and receive calls whether you are in the office or on the go.

Absolutely.
