A professional answering service typically offers around-the-clock and after-hour service, allowing your customers to reach out with a question or concern any time of day or night, while still allowing you and your crew some much-needed rest. This not only makes life easier for your customers, improving their overall experience, but it also boosts your rep as a caring company. And no worries – urgent or emergency calls can be expedited based on criteria you establish, while more run-of-the-mill messages can be saved for the office the following day.
