Answering service providers and inbound call centre service providers require exceptional listening and customer service skills.

We ran across an interesting article for small businesses written by a UK-based consultancy, titled “17 Reasons Why Small Businesses Should Have 

a Telephone Answering Service.If you’re a small business owner, you may want to read the entire article. For today, let’s discuss 5 of the benefits that we at On Call Centre find resonate with our own clients.

1. Never miss a sales call

This single benefit speaks volumes. As you know, today’s customers shop around. If they’re not able to reach you, it’s very easy to move on and call your competition. With a telephone answering service—especially On Call Centre’s answering service—you’ll never miss a sales call again because our professional customer service representatives answer every call. No voice mail. No missed calls.

2. We are always live

We have the best staff and the most up-to-date technology to ensure we are live 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We answer every customer call in a timely manner, which means fewer abandoned calls, faster time to resolution, and greater customer satisfaction and loyalty.

3. Strategic

When you hire a professional call answering service to manage your messages, you gain our expertise, and you free up your time to focus on your core competencies and grow your business.

4. We are professionals

Having your phones answered by a professional customer service representative (CSR) immediately increases the professionalism of your business in the eyes of the caller. Our CSRs are career-minded, fluently bilingual, empathetic, and skilled in managing all types of calls, from the easiest to the most difficult. We treat our clients’ customers with genuine interest, respect and helpfulness. And, because professional CSRs are talking with your customers, you’re delivering an exceptional customer experience, which results in loyal customers.

5. Real people who speak your language

Every customer who calls our clients is greeted by a live body with a beating heart. We do not use voice mail. People prefer to talk to a live person rather than a machine. We speak your language fluently, whether English or French. And all our CSRs are Canadian.

Since 1971, we’ve been providing answering services and call centre services to our clients located in Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and across Canada and the United States. If you’re looking for an answering service provider or inbound call centre service, we welcome the opportunity to talk with you.
