First impressions can make or break a sale and making the first point of contact a friendly and professional experience is a crucial part of handling calls. Live answering services can be a convenient way to handle calls for B2C and B2B businesses. 

A range of industries use live answering services on a daily basis, but how do they work and is a live answering service what your business needs? Read on to learn more about how a live answering service works and how Business 1300 can help your business succeed.

What is a Live Answering Service?

A live answering service handles communications for a collection of companies. They can handle inbound calls using a script which signals to the operator who the caller is calling for. When the operator answers the call, they are able to take a message or direct the call accordingly.

What is the Purpose of a Live Answering Service?

First and foremost, live answering services provide a professional front for SME businesses and large corporations alike. Live answering services also can help small and medium-sized businesses handle large call volumes without having to hire in-house. The service can also be used to relieve staff members during the holidays, after hours or in case of an emergency.

How Does it Work?

Live answering services benefit both the customer and the company by reducing the time a customer has to wait to speak to a representative, often leading to greater customer satisfaction. Operators are able to answer the call in a timely manner and use a prompted script to answer the caller’s queries and direct them accordingly. Overall, live answering services ensure a more pleasant experience for the caller, which is crucial in a customer driven environment.
