What is a call answering service?

A call answering service makes it easy for your business to stay in touch with customers.

Whether they're new leads or committed clients, making sure a real human being answers your phone is the first step towards providing a great customer experience.

That positive customer experience is vital to your business. After all, satisfied customers are the foundation of your business.

How a call answering service works

In-house staffing to provide 24-hour coverage is challenging, especially for a small business.

An answering service offers you live, professional receptionists around the clock, whether you're a large corporation, or a team of one.

To get started, talk to one of our account managers to determine what kind of answering service your business needs. You might focus on qualifying your inbound leads to prioritize those most likely to become customers, taking orders for physical products, or scheduling time slots for services.

Then, when you're ready, forward your existing phone line to us (or we can give you a new toll free number).

Once your account is set up and your calls forwarded, your new customer experience associates take over. They will answer the phone in your business name, with a greeting you choose.

Your customers will get the same care and consideration they'd get from your direct employees, at a fraction of the cost - only now there will always be someone available to them when they call, any time, day or night.

Advantages of an answering service

When your callers get voicemail, there's every chance they won't leave a message and that they won't call back. Instead, it's on to the next competitor on the search engine results page.

Providing 24/7 customer service shows your clients that you value their business and you're there for them whenever they need you, putting you one step ahead of the competition.

A business call answering service doesn't take up space in your office and you don't pay full time salaries plus benefits for an in-house receptionist team. Instead, you get live answering minutes to use only when you need them.

A business answering service is also flexible, responsive to your demand.

Doing a big marketing push? You can easily add minutes to your plan for a month or two, or make use of your plan's overage minutes. Have a slow season of the year? You can scale back your minutes to meet your business's needs.
