Featured case study

Rhodes Brook Financial Management first approached Face For Business in 2015 having recently expanded the business. They were aware that clients were reluctant to leave messages on voicemails and were very concerned that as a result, calls would be missed.

Virtual Receptionist Service - Face For Business

Designed for small business

There are an estimated 5.9 million SME’s in the UK working in numerous sectors. If you work in this sector, you will understand the many challenges being faced every day, not least how to handle incoming phone calls. Some of these calls will be valuable new enquiries into your business and can’t be missed. Whether you’re in a meeting with a client, engaged on another call or just unable to pick up your handset, missing a call could mean the loss of an order or a new client. As 80% of callers choose not to leave their message on a voicemail, many small businesses will look for other methods of capturing those calls.

Tailored service

Face For Business can provide you with the back-up that you need to enable you to get on with running your business. You can rest assured knowing that any calls that you’re can’t get to, will be answered by one of our professional and friendly PAs, thus ensuring that your clients and potential new clients receive the service that they deserve.

Messages are emailed over to you immediately, are accurate and always include the reason for the call. We can also tailor our service to include any other questions or information that you would like us to capture from your callers.

We have been using Face For Business for over 12 months now and have found them to be professional and friendly. We now consider them to be an essential part of our business. Face For Business answer calls for us when we are unavailable to do so and are an excellent representation of our business.

Frequently asked questions

  • What type of packages do you offer?

    Face For Business offers a broad range of packages to suit our customers’ needs. We can either answer some of your calls, or all of your calls. Face For Business provides both ‘messages only’ packages, or we can also transfer calls to you or your colleagues. We even have packages whereby we can share your company information or capture diary bookings. Get in touch to understand more.

  • Is there a set up charge?

    No, here at FFB we believe in being fully transparent with our pricing, which is why there is no setup fee. Please call us on 0333 323 1007 to find out more about our pricing packages.

  • How can we assess if your service is right for our business?

    By taking advantage of our FREE 7-day free trial with no obligation, you will be able to understand how our service works and determine the most appropriate package for your business.

  • Can I alter my monthly package at any time?

    Of course, you can change to a different FFB package to accommodate the busy or quiet times of the year. All you need to do is inform FFB prior to us sending out your next invoice and we will happily make this change for you.

  • What happens after hours?

    For out of hours we have a range of options available. We can set up a personalised voicemail facility to capture all of your messages and email the recorded message in a WAV file. We can also divert emergency calls back to your mobile when we’re not open, or simply provide a greeting, explaining when you are closed and reopening.

  • What happens if I lose a message that you’ve forwarded to me?

    All messages are saved in our system so if you lose or accidentally delete a message you can get in touch and we’ll resend it to you.

  • What happens if two customers call me at the same time?

    We can handle as many calls that come through to your business as you need us to. This is because our service runs on a digital network and not a physical landline so it doesn’t limit the number of calls we’re able to answer at once.

  • I want to add two mobile phones to the service, is this possible?

    Yes, if you have multiple contractors receiving calls from customers or you need to cover more than one landline for a sales team, we can add multiple lines to your account so you never miss a call.
