How A Virtual Answering Service Works For Your Business

Having a virtual answering service is easy! An experienced and friendly ReceptionHQ receptionist in America will answer the call and politely greet your caller based on your script.

You can focus on working on other things, with peace of mind to know that your calls will always be answered by our answering service. You can then check your messages at a time which is convenient for you.

If you already have a receptionist, ReceptionHQ can provide an overflow or peak service, lunch relief, and holiday cover. We also can provide your business with a 24/7 telephone answering service, so you never miss an important call ever again.

What is an answering service?

An answering service provides a phone answering service, which can manage both inbound and outbound calls. The telephone answering service is located in the USA to provide localized customer service for customers anywhere in America.

A 24 hour answering service is available around the clock and ensures you don’t miss any important calls. The service can relay urgent calls to dedicated staff, as well as free up employee time by screening non-urgent or superfluous calls.

As technology advances, a telephone answering service can now provide exceptional customer service. By using the smartphone app or the client web portal, you can instantly update your availability and instructions for the virtual receptionist to follow.

Besides a call answering service, they can also assist with scheduling appointments, and making outbound calls to leads.

It’s possible to have an entire team of people providing an answering service for less than you would pay someone to do a full-time receptionist job, meaning there isn’t just improved efficiency and customer service, but it can also help to slash costs.

What is a virtual receptionist?

A virtual receptionist can assist your business without costing a fortune. They are the same as an actual receptionist, with one main difference. Instead of sitting in your physical office at the front desk, they instead work from home or in a virtual receptionist services office based anywhere in the USA. They handle all of your phone calls virtually, from a different location than where you are based.

Besides cutting back on expenses that you would need to pay for a live receptionist, such as a computer, headset, phone, desk, chair, stationary, and more by outsourcing, you also won’t have to pay a regular salary and any benefits to an employee.

A virtual receptionist can also handle basic admin and customer service questions, which can free up other staff members time, or reduce the number of permanent employees you need. Virtual receptionist services cover anything from taking messages, to scheduling appointments, answering customer questions, and dealing with any issues.

It’s possible to train a virtual receptionist team to handle either simple or complex tasks, depending on what you wish to handle yourself, and what you want to outsource.
