A cost-effective business telephone answering service.

How do you provide a high standard of customer support without the cost of hiring full-time, in-house employees? For many small businesses, that level of service is out of reach.

Enjoy the benefits of an in-house team, without the hiring, training and staffing costs with a small business phone answering service.

And because our Canadian based agents work from home, they aren't vulnerable to local service outages or natural disasters.

Demo Call


  • Why would I need a small business answering service?Arrow icon

    Engaging with callers 24/7 is a major challenge, especially for small and medium businesses that don't want to pay for a team to operate around the clock. That's why many businesses opt to outsource their customer support to a business answering service.

  • Will I be locked into a contract?Arrow icon

    No. Your contract runs on a monthly rolling basis. You can opt-out at any time with no cancellation fees.

  • How can I check my calls and messages? Arrow icon

    You can check all calls and messages through the AnswerConnect mobile and Desktop app. You can review recordings of conversations, leave notes for your virtual receptionists and follow-up with leads directly through the app.

  • How does a small business answering service work? Arrow icon

    A business answering service works as an extension of your customer support team. Working from their respective home offices, a team of Canadian virtual receptionists provide real-time responses to business calls and web chat interactions. These 'business answering agents' engage with your customers and record and relay messages to you and other relevant members of staff.

  • How does AnswerConnect get to know my business? Arrow icon

    We work with your current team and design call flows to respond to your business needs. If you already have a receptionist team, you can choose an after hours call answering service, or opt for us to handle your overflow calls.

  • Where are your receptionists based? Arrow icon

    Our virtual receptionists are based around Canada, so you can give callers an on-brand experience in every interaction.
