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.

And although hiring an in house receptionist to deal with your calls is extremely beneficial to the running of your business, there are other, more cost effective, options available to you. By using Best Reception’s call answering services you can help to ensure that you never miss out on vital business calls, for a fraction of the cost of hiring an in-house receptionist!
There are obvious reasons why outsourcing your reception would be a cost effective alternative to hiring an in-house receptionist; for example, the amount paid on a yearly salary, holiday entitlements and other in-house staff benefits. These are all unnecessary expenditures you can avoid with an outsourced reception.

But by outsourcing your calls to your very own team of virtual receptionists, you can provide your office with vital back-up at busy times. Outsourcing your reception also ensures that during periods of low call volumes you are not paying out for unnecessary staff.
Here at Best Reception we also offer a free sales screening service, which means your time is not wasted dealing with pesky sales calls.
