How It Works

Once the questionnaire is received, our team will reach out to schedule an onboarding call to confirm you business details and address any questions you have about our services.
After assessing your business’s needs and developing an initial strategy, we'll create your account, train your new receptionists, and assign a new phone number for your business
Before the first day of your virtual receptionist service free trial, you'll receive a welcome email with details about how the new services work.
When your trial is up, we'll analyze our data and reporting, assess the minutes used, and recommend the best ongoing plan for your needs.

What We Do
Benefits of The Answer Virtual Receptionists
Your business’s reputation can make or break you, and missing phone calls is a big red flag. After all, 74% of people who have a bad phone experience would choose another business next time. A virtual receptionist can manage your reputation by answering calls promptly and providing excellent customer service.
By having a virtual receptionist service to handle customer calls and inquiries, you can ensure that your clients are always given the undivided attention they deserve. Increased customer satisfaction often results in repeat business, referrals, and valuable online reviews.
