This can be a reason for losing business of seeming unprofessional to potential clients. With Face for Business on board, estate agents know their calls are being answered professionally and the full details of potential clients have been captured.
I have worked for Face for Business for nearly three years now and I can honestly say that I love my job and love coming to work. We have a great team that work as a team, which is really important to the role of a phone answering service PA. I’m lead PA for clients from the driving school sector. Whether they be an independent instructor or a driving school with many driving instructors on board, my role is to answer their calls. As you can imagine, instructors are out on the road every day, sometimes from 8.00am in the morning right through to 8.00pm at night, so the chance of having time to answer their phone calls is quite slim. That’s how I help! When my driving instructor clients are out on lessons with their pupils they simply pop their phone on divert and their calls all come to me.
