Virtual Office Receptionist - Face For Business

Get all calls answered by a person, not a machine

Your business lives and dies on the quality of its customer service. Happy customers equal higher profits. Unhappy customers lead to lost revenue. Not to mention missed calls can lead to lost sales.


When the phone rings and you can’t answer it, you want the confidence that your customers (current and future) are being dealt with professionally by an actual person who understands your business.

It’s either that or a customer is greeted by a robotic, automated voice asking them to leave a message, which they’re not likely to do. With our virtual receptionists acting as an extension of your team you never need to worry about missing out on a call ever again.

No more losing leads and revenue. Just growth on the back of happy, satisfied customers.

Increase your working hours without the work

We know you’re invested in your business’ future and growth, but do you really want to work every waking hour just to make sure you don’t miss a call or lose an opportunity? With a virtual receptionist, you don’t have to.

A virtual receptionist can extend your business’ opening hours beyond the normal 9-5 to help you help customers and pick-up leads who aren’t able to call during regular business hours.

Your virtual receptionist will ensure calls continue to be answered in a friendly and professional manner with accurate messages and call recordings instantly available to you via your app.

If you have urgent calls you want to deal with, you can arrange to have these immediately forwarded to you or a member of your team.

Your professional virtual receptionist can also continue to book sales meetings for you after the office is closed with new appointments automatically added to and viewable in your diary.

What customers say about our virtual receptionists

  • Imogen Harris ★★★★★ in the last week
    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.
  • Edwina Sleight ★★★★★ a week ago
    I have used Face for Business for a long time, and find them to be reliable, friendly, helpful, efficient and professional in dealing with myself and my clients.
    They represent very good value and I would highly recommend them
