Excellent feedback from a holiday cover client!

‘I have to thank you and your staff  for a splendid job well done. I really appreciated the speed with which you were able to respond for my urgent plea for help, just hours before my departure. I greatly appreciated your email updates on activity, and the diary you set up. All of my patients, on questioning, were under the impression that they were talking to someone here in my clinic, and had no idea that they were dealing with your service. I will happily use your services again, should the need arise, and will have no hesitation in recommending you to others.’ – Physiotherapist in Reading

Starting Up A New Business

Starting up a new business can be daunting, trying to make sure everything goes smoothly as we,, as building up a client base can be stressful. Adding to that stress can be the telephone ringing, especially when tied up in another task or on another call. The effect on your business that missing a call may have could be catastrophic, as the caller may be a big new enquiry who does not wish to leave a voicemail, so simply hangs up and calls the next company on the list. However if they called up and went through to a receptionist, who was efficient and friendly, and put them through to the relevant person or gave them the relevant details and handled their enquiry, they would feel satisfied from the call and would happily use your services again in the future.

Here at Best Reception we have various private practices who not only use us because of our online booking system, but also to ensure that potential new enquiries are not missed and existing clients are catered to in the professional and friendly manner they expect.
Our aim is to blend seamlessly into the day to day running of your practice, achieved by answering your calls in a way that suits you and your practice. With the right knowledge to hand, your receptionists can give over the phone advice including prices, appointment lengths and even details on what their treatment will consist of. If requested we are also more than happy to book your appointments for you when you can’t, either using our free online diary system or your own booking system via remote access.

What are the advantages in using a telephone answering service for my company?

By admin | Published: Posted on

Every business, no matter what size they are or sector they work in, have one very crucial aspect in common. The telephone is generally the first point of contact for any potential customer or client, so creating a perfect first impression, for any business, is essential.  What’smore, the businesses telephone line is vital in maintaining a high level of customer service with existing clients. Dealing with customer queries and even complaints quickly and efficiently is key in running a successful business. It is for these reasons, and many more, that telephone answering services are becoming a vital addition to many businesses of all varieties
It is worth noting here also, that if you have never dealt with a telephone answering service before, there are a few myths that need to be dispelled. The image often conjured up when thinking of a telephone answering service is one of a non UK based centre, filled with thousands of operators, but this is simply not the case. Best reception for example is a small company, with all receptionists based in a local office in Hertford. We pride ourselves on offering a professional, friendly and bespoke service suited to your company.

Creating a professional impression for your company

Outsourcing your reception will do exactly this. Your calls will be answered in a professional manner and will instantly give callers a great first impression of your company. By having a human operator at the end of the phone, instead of a call waiting message, busy tone or even constant ringing, will speak volumes for the professionalism of your company.

Keeping up a high standards of customer service

For any business to succeed, it is essential to maintain a good rapport with existing clients, and a telephone answering service can help you do exactly this. By keeping the line of communication flowing smoothly when day to day schedules take youaway from the phone, your receptionists will manage caller’s expectations. Whether your receptionists inform callers of your movements, or deals with customer requirements directly, your callers will be reassured that their requirements are being dealt with.

Excellent cost cutting measure for all types of  businesses

Outsourcing itself is an excellent cost cutting measure. For all businesses, outsourcing your receptionist requirements will always be more cost
effective than hiring in house staff, especially if you need a greater number of staff to manage a high volume of calls. However, outsourcing does not mean that you sacrifice quality. It is so seamlessly done that caller’s will have no idea they are not dealing with staff directly based in your office!

Providing more than just a telephone answering service

Any reputable telephone answering service nowadays will offer much more than just telephone answering. They will aim to become an extension of your company by providing any bespoke service you may need, from order taking, dealing with customer questions queries, to booking in your clients and managing your diary! These are only a few examples of what can be done for you; telephone answering services aim to provide you with so much more than an operator to answer your calls. If you wish, they will provide you with a receptionist team who will aim to complete any task you require.
