Accountancy Case Study

Client: MJH Accountancy Services Ltd

We have been working with MJH Accountancy since July 2013, they were one of our first customers and are still using our service to date, proving that they are more than happy with our provision.

As with most accountants, MJH Accountancy has peaks and troughs throughout the year. At busier times, such as self-assessment periods or end of year, their phone calls peak with clients requesting meetings and guidance, and new clients ringing up regarding the completion of their first assessment. At these times, there is a solution to the abundance of phone calls.

MJH Accountancy divert all calls to Face for Business where we capture those new clients for them and take messages from existing clients – these messages are forwarded immediately to their inboxes, where they prioritise the order in which clients are called back.

The benefits of using Face for Business for MJH Accountancy are:

  • The option to divert calls during seasonal highs and lows.
  • Cost savings – MJH Accountancy relies on our back-up when they need to outsource their calls during the busier periods.
  • Calls are recorded, and can be listened too to gain any further details required.
  • Employee costs are reduced, as MJH Accountancy does not need another member of staff, but does require additional support periodically.

What MJH Accountancy says about Face for Business

Face for Business gives me the freedom to concentrate on working on the day to day demands of my practice without worrying about missing important calls from my clients or potential clients. Each time I get a call I am immediately informed by my dedicated PA, Annette Parker.

When I have asked my clients about their experience when calls have been handled by Face for Business, they say the service is professional and a delight. My PA Annette answers all my calls as though they she is with me in my office and is part of my team. Annette is always available to speak to and is always happy to help. I look forward to continuing our relationship with Face for Business.

    Face for Business have been a great asset for our small business. They took over handling our incoming calls in the middle of June and it has been a huge sense of relief knowing that no calls are being missed. Messages are sent over promptly … More and the phones are covered for more hours than we'd be able to staff. The scripts are customisable and all my interactions with their staff have been lovely. Highly recommend to anybody looking for a phone answering service.
  • Chris Partridge ★★★★★ in the last week
    A relatively new client, we’ve found the team at Face for Business to be fantastic, always eager to help. Our call handling needs are not straight forward but FFB have worked on rules and processes to ensure that messages are taken, meetings … More are booked or call transfers are managed according to the customers’ needs and our internal processes. I feel relaxed and confident with them being the first stop for customer interactions.
    Their mobile phone app to enable me to adjust how calls are handled based on my availability as well as contact my PA directly or listen back to any calls taken is incredibly useful.
    I cannot recommend them highly enough.
