Make a Positive First Impression with a Virtual Receptionist

Australian Based. Tailored Solutions. Short or Long Term.

The virtual reception service is ideally suited to a business requiring a professional telephone answering solution where calls are transferred directly to the intended recipient. The service is designed to be used in place of in-house receptionists who handle inbound calls. It may be used as a permanent reception service that handles all incoming calls, or for overflow and temporary call diversions of the main business line. It's also ideally suited as an after-hours service for businesses requiring longer operating hours.

Customers create their first impressions of your business within the first 7 seconds of initial contact, with the majority of customers stating that tone of voice dramatically impacts their experience. Unlike a traditional voicemail service which is usually automated or impersonal, a virtual receptionist is a friendly and professional person who sounds like they are of your own reception staff when they answer your calls.
