Face for Business Blog


The staff at independent opticians, Jones & Co needed a telephone answering company to deal with calls when they couldn't get to the phone. Face for Business stood out to them as we shared the same business values - namely friendly and a less corporate feel. This was important to Jones and Co, as their business thrives on excellent customer service and they didn't want people thinking they were ringing a call centre hundreds of miles away.

A telephone answering service provides businesses with a back-up reception for those times when they can’t answer the phone themselves or when existing staff are already busy taking other calls or are away from their desks; whether this be during a lunch break, on annual leave or perhaps when long-term sickness is a factor.   A telephone answering service can also be known as a call answering service or a call handling service.  But they all strive to offer you the same service, helping you to have all calls answered.

Did you know that 80% of people won’t leave a message on an answering machine and that these are no longer considered modern technology? Plus, people are becoming more insistent on speaking to ‘humans’ in this age of the internet.  They may complete online forms or send emails, as requested to do so, but when they have a problem they want to speak with someone. Many people don’t like enquiring over the internet and prefer to make enquires or bookings over the telephone.
