Top 10 reasons to outsource your reception
By admin | Published:Posted on11th September 2012
Maintains a constant professional appearance
Having your calls answered by a professional and friendly receptionist really gives a great first impression to new enquiries; as well as providing existing clients with a sense of confidence that their calls are being dealt with efficiently. Your receptionists will always convey an exceptionally high standard of customer service, and will strive their hardest to reinforce your companys professional image at all times.
Outsourcing your reception is an excellent cost cutting measure. For all businesses, outsourcing your reception requirements will always be more cost effective than hiring in house staff – especially if your call volume requires more than one member of staff to manage your calls. Having an outsourced reception can save you money on other aspects of running a business too, such as paying out for line rental, holiday and sick pay and even things such as office furniture and stationery.
Free sales screening
Unlike many other outsourced reception companies, we will always try to screen your unsolicited callers to avoid them getting through to you and wasting your valuable time. Sales callers can often try every trick in the book to get through to the person they want to speak to, however here at Best Reception we are wise to their tactics, and will always do our best to ensure that they do not get through and disturb your day. And whats more you wont be charged for a single one!
We know that every company is not the same, and neither is the level of cover needed. As a result of this, we have quite a few divert options to choose from. You can choose to divert all of your calls, divert calls when you cant answer, divert your calls when the phone is engaged, or manually turn your divert on and off for when situations arise in which you need your phone lines covered. Setting up or changing your divert is as simple as tapping a few numbers in to your keypad and so can be completed in a matter of moments when you need us most!
Your very own team of receptionists
All new clients are given their very own team of virtual receptionists; you will have the same team of five girls answering your calls from the day you start your trial, throughout your entire time with Best Reception.
