Telephone Answering Service

When Does the Virtual Receptionist Answer My Line?

  • Businesses with in-house receptionists forward their business calls after normal business hours and on weekends. So when your office closes and all staff leaves at 5:00 pm, your virtual receptionist staff then clocks in and takes the later hour shifts. Remember, with A Courteous Answering Service, you only pay for calls that come in on your line. Don’t send your after-hour potentials clients and marketing leads to an answering machine after 5:00 pm. Hire our virtual receptionists to handle the call and act as an extension of your office from our locations throughout the United States.
  • Mobile Businesses or At-Home Businesses allow our virtual receptionists to answer all of their incoming business calls. When you are operating a mobile or at-home business, you mostly like have no support staff assisting the administrative tasks of your business. Our virtual receptionists give your home business a professional and impressive first impression for your callers. Allow us to take messages for you when you are unavailable or allow us to dispatch calls directly to your cell phone for optimal flexibility and convenience.
