What are the pros and cons of working with a live receptionist team? Is there such a thing as a good cheap answering service?
It takes three ingredients to make a great answering service: Stability in business, leading edge equipment and tech support, and great operational management.
Years in business is an important marker. If an answering service has been in business several decades that indicates business success and support from their business communities.
Equipment is another important component. Forget about desktop telephones, message pads and typewriters. Be suspicious of standard issue office computer hardware and software. When your customer's call to your business is fielded to the answering service their operator must have - on their workstation screens - all the information and instructions needed to answer your call.
That kind of technological support requires investment running into the mid six figure range. A modern answering service company can and should route, manage and direct each call as it comes onto their network - without relying on the changing priorities of their local telcos (telephone companies).
If your answering service company is doing their job and hiring the right people you can think of your answering service as your live virtual receptionist. This means that not only do you get professional message handling and relay but you also can free up your office and company staff to do other tasks. Your receptionist on payroll becomes can more valuable to your company because their receptionist job description can become more like the job description of an administrative assistant.
If your business spans multiple States or Provinces ask for toll free service. A nationwide telephone answering service should provide 1-800 answering services at no charge. This allows your customers to call you from all over North America - at no charge to them (and no charge to you)!
