What attorneys love about ReceptionHQ

ReceptionHQ are great. In my own practice their virtual reception service helps out greatly. I now have time to do real work, instead of answering all of my calls.

FAQs

Yes. This is referred to as “call overflow”.

A lot of companies require their phone calls to be answered only when they are unable to take the call themselves. For example, if you step out of the office for an hour or your in-house receptionist goes to lunch, is on leave or is busy on another call and you have multiple calls coming in at the one time.

You can set your business phone number to divert (to the unique local phone number we allocate your business during the Free Trial setup process) only when the phone rings for more than a specified period (such as after 5 rings) or if your line is busy/engaged.

In such instances our receptionists will then answer the phone as if we were in your office. You’re always in control and can relax knowing you will never miss another important call again! 

Yes. ReceptionHQ’s team of receptionists based in the United States predominantly answer calls for our US clients during standard office hours, with overflow support available from our international teams such as in Australia and the UK.  Calls are answered by our team in the US whenever possible, however calls overflow to our international teams after hours and during unforeseen peaks in call volumes.  This enables us to provide 24/7 coverage for businesses that need it and ensure calls are always answered as fast as possible, reducing the risk of call abandonment. We know Average Speed of Answer (ASA) is very important to our clients and one of our key differentiators is that we’re able to answer calls in under 10 seconds, on average.

Yes, we are able to transfer calls to any staff member on any phone (landline or cell).  With our innovative software, we can record availability preferences for each staff member and only transfer when requested.  Individual details can be updated at any time via our online client portal or mobile application.

We pride ourselves in offering ‘warm transfers’, that is, callers are always announced to you before the transfer takes place.  If you’re unavailable, or if you don’t answer the call, our receptionist will go back to your caller, let them know you’re unavailable, take a message then forward it to you.

We do not blind transfer calls (transfer unannounced) unless you request this.
