Everything You Need to Know About Business Answering Services

Do you live answer all of my calls?

With pleasure! During your chosen service hours, one of our wonderful virtual receptionists will answer each and every call in a sparkling, lively and inviting tone.

How many receptionists will I have?

No one likes to reach a call center. This is why we only have a small, dedicated team of receptionists answering your calls. You and your callers will become very familiar with the receptionists answering your calls, as they will with you. They soon will truly become an extension of yourself and your business. Each team consists of 5-7 receptionists. The number of teams you are assigned will depend on how long you need us to be available:

  • Standard Business Hours – 1 Team
  • Extended Hours – 2 Teams
  • 24/7 – 3 Teams
What happens to my calls when you aren’t answering?

If you should decide not to have 24/7 answering, then you can have your phone carrier set to unforward your calls after hours, or set up a custom voicemail system. This voicemail system is included in your services and your options with it are limitless. You can have a single general voicemail box, or many boxes or even a phone tree.

What will the receptionist say when they answer the phone?

Abby Connect virtual receptionists greet each of your callers with a greeting that is tailored to your wishes for your company. We keep it personal and welcoming. A common greeting may sound like: “Good Morning/Afternoon, thank you for calling ________. How may I assist you?” Another greeting may sound like, “It’s a great day at ____. How may I direct your call?” Regardless, the live call answering greeting is fully up to you and what suits your company best.

Do your receptionists speak Spanish?

Yes, fluently! Many of our receptionists are fully bilingual in English and Spanish, and are able to flawlessly handle your calls in either language. Every team features at least 2 bilingual receptionists who help build trust and confidence with your Spanish-speaking callers from their very first call.
