An example of the benefits of an outsourced switchboard can be seen with one of our clients, who are a large metal supplier.
Their company is made up of number of different departments, such as accounts, sales, dispatch, and goods in. Within these departments, they have a large work force, totaling over 80 employees.
As their outsourced switchboard, we guarantee that no call of theirs is missed. We also have easy access to all employees and departments, therefore being able to efficiently forward on calls to the relevant team. For example, with callers asking for sales, we follow instructions to always transfer the call. We only ask callers for their name and company then try all of the contacts within the sales team until we get a response.
All of the virtual receptionists have taken the time to extensively learn about the running of this company, therefore when calls come in, we can accurately assess the correct course of action. As a result of this, their callers would not know that we are not based in their offices.
