4 Ways a Call Answering Service Can Save You Time

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

We could all do with more hours in the day, but have you looked at the activities that are draining your time, are you really using your time wisely? Using a call answering service will help you reclaim the minutes and even hours you lose to distractions that take your focus away from the tasks that really need your attention – and it’s about far more than just phone calls.

Read on for our top 4 ways that a call answering service can save you time.

1) Say Goodbye to Your Receptionist
Letting a call answering service manage your calls eliminates the need for you to hire a receptionist. Say hello to the time usually spent advertising, interviewing, training and monitoring, not to mention the inconvenience of staff sickness and absence. Trained receptionists are waiting to take your calls 24/7 without disturbing you and your working day.

2) Free Up Your Diary
It’s now up to you to productively fill the time you’d usually spend booking, cancelling and juggling your appointments. Let trained receptionists take responsibility for managing your diary so that your day isn’t disturbed by admin.

3) Processing Your Orders
Making sales is what your business relies on, but hand over this repetitive process to receptionists that are dedicated to your account and trained on your products. Let them process your orders, even accessing your own web-based system, giving you the confidence to know that your sales aren’t being lost during busy periods.

4) Be Free to Focus and Increase Your Productivity
It’s not just about the few minutes spent on the phone, it’s about the distraction from the task you were previously handling and the follow up action the phone call may require. You’ve lost your train of thought, your attention has been diverted and the important job you were attending to has suddenly shifted down your to-do list. Reclaim your focus and the focus of your team by delegating the ringing phone to a call answering service.
