Outsourcing your telephone calls

Have a look at our video which describes the benefits of outsourcing your calls to us.  You may find that you will fit into one of the categories.  You can use us some of the time or all of the time, or periodically during busy deadline periods.  

Comparable Costs

The cost of missing one phone call speaks for itself.  We surveyed a number of companies in the financial services sector, and the annual amount that could be lost due to missing just one phone call a month amounts to an average of £24,000 per annum.  Can you afford to lose this much business??


Outsourced receptionists

If you look directly at the cost of hiring a full-time receptionist compared to using an outsourced receptionist such as Face for Business, the figures speak for themselves.  The average cost of a full-time receptionist is £24,150, whereas the cost of a Face for Business PA starts from £18.00 per week (£936.00 per annum).  Additionally, if you were to approach a temping agency and use their services, you could be looking at £7,000 per annum (which is the average cost of cover per person).  [Source].
