Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS AN ANSWERING SERVICE?

An answering service is the equivalent to employing a full time receptionist without the additional expenses of training and providing benefits. Our answering service is a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week, 365 day a year operation that answers your calls in the name of your business, gathering only the information you desire, answering 100% of your calls by way of a live person. No answering machines. No annoying hold music for 15 minutes with a myriad of different options to push to connect to your party.

Think of an answering service as a liaison between you and your customers; when your customers call your business line, they will be connected almost immediately to a live person whom they perceive to be your employee. Employing an answering service gives you the benefit of having access to a fully trained customer service team without the overhead costs. Do you want to get rid of those pesky telemarketers? We can do that too. You won't even know they ever called if you so choose.

WHAT IS YOUR BILLING FORMAT?

We believe it is more cost effective to be billed per minute, NOT by call. This way you are only paying for the time that our agents are talking to your clients, versus per call billing which would still bill you for a hang-up or disconnected solicitation call. Our agents can give your callers the personalized attention they need. Again, we can customize any business need for optimal answering service solutions.

HOW DO I GET MY MESSAGES?

You have a menu of options to choose from. Your messages can be sent to your cell phone, alphanumeric pager, fax machine, e-mail, or sent into a customized voicemail box designated for your company only. We can also e-mail a confirmation of all messages to your company e-mail. Furthermore, our most cost effective and popular feature is our SMS/text messaging capability. Our agents can dispatch your client information to your cell phone instantaneously!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SET UP SERVICE?

Once you have chosen a plan that best suits your business needs, simple accounts can be programmed within 24 hours.
However, should you require more complexity, this may take anywhere between 24-48 hours.
