Benefits Of A Virtual Receptionist Service

Amazing customer service

First impressions are important, so we ensure you always make a good one. Specially trained with extensive experience, our virtual receptionists deliver a brilliant experience for your callers. Whether they’re taking messages when you’re busy, transferring callers to the right people, or helping customers book appointments online, they always add the personal touch – the kind that people will remember you for.

More time for you

The simple truth is that when you’ve got a professional virtual receptionist taking care of your callers, you’ve got more time to spend elsewhere. Imagine no more annoying cold sales and marketing calls and no more unwanted interruptions, leaving you time for the work in hand. You’ll be free to focus on the areas of your business where you can add the most value, safe in the knowledge that your front line is being expertly looked after by us.

Extend Your Opening Hours

With our standard opening hours from 8am to 8pm weekdays, 9am to 5.30pm on Saturdays and 10am to 4pm on Sundays, you can capture more calls and opportunities. Our virtual receptionist service also provides a personalised voicemail greeting outside these hours, which is delivered straight to your email, so you’ll have peace of mind that no important calls will slip through the net. One less worry for your day.

A Cost-Effective Choice

Not just competitively priced, our virtual receptionist service provides you with a receptionist resource without any of the costs associated with hiring a permanent member of staff. No more worrying or headaches over sickness, holidays, maternity, comfort and lunch breaks. Leave the stress with us; it’s all of the benefits, without the hit to your bank balance.

Avoid unwanted sales calls

Create a barrier between your business and nuisance sales calls that drag you and your team away from value-adding tasks that will actually help your business. Our virtual receptionists can even have you removed from sales lists and make sure only the important calls get through to you.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do I have to sign up to a contract for your virtual receptionist services?

    Our virtual receptionist service runs on a monthly payment schedule. If you want to cancel your package after the first 60 days, then you can simply give us 30 days notice. Alternatively, if you wish to amend your package, just let us know and we can change it to suit your needs.

    Is There A Charge To Change My Virtual Receptionist Service Subscription?

    No! We know demand fluctuates during the year, so if you need to downgrade or upgrade your services, you can do that without incurring any admin charges.

    What Is A Virtual Receptionist?

    Much like a “real” receptionist employed by businesses to process incoming phone calls and to direct clients to the relevant members of your team, a virtual receptionist is able to do all of this without being directly employed by your business.

    What is a virtual receptionist? A virtual receptionist is an outsourced personal assistant (PA) at a telephone answering service provider that can answer your business phone line and much more, without needing to be physically present in your office.

    What Do Virtual Receptionists Do?

    Virtual receptionists carry out many customer-facing roles that add a professional face (or voice!) to a business’ call answering, and provide a reliable front-of-house service.

    Your virtual receptionist can supplement or fully manage answering incoming calls, ensuring you never miss a call or potentially lose a sale. They can take detailed messages to be passed onto your team to handle later, directly deal with some customer enquiries to free your team up to address more complex issues, or ensure urgent calls are directed to the correct member of your team first time, every time.

    A virtual receptionist service can also remove the time-consuming admin of appointment bookings that can take up your day. Our virtual receptionists can fully manage your customer facing diary or booking form,, so you can capture more appointments. And you won’t have to worry about double booking your time, because any appointments or meetings will be updated in real-time.

    Unlike call centre answering services, which will only take messages, a virtual receptionist can directly deal with some customer enquiries, and can even help you qualify leads or block unwanted sales calls.

    Your virtual receptionist works closely with you and your team to understand how your business works, what types of calls you regularly receive (and how you want them to be dealt with), and which employees should receive transferred calls.

    What Types Of Calls Do Your Virtual Receptionists Answer?

    Whatever calls you want us to answer! You can hire us to answer all your business’ incoming calls, or just pay for the time you’ll need us.

    If you just want us to manage any overflow calls, you can simply set up a diversion from your phone to your virtual receptionist when you need it and the calls will come through to us.

    How much does a virtual receptionist cost?

    The cost of our virtual receptionist services are offered in flexible, scalable monthly packages tailored to your business’ specific needs.

    Our popular packages start at £200 a month, and many clients fit into this service level. We continually optimise your package to ensure you’re only paying for what you use to help you avoid additional charges.

    If you’re not sure a virtual receptionist service is worth the investment, start a 7-day free trial.

    How Can Hiring A Virtual Receptionist Elevate Your Business?

    Choosing a virtual receptionist service can transform your business and productivity. From handling incoming calls to managing appointments to dealing with customer enquiries, a virtual receptionist ensures that your customers are always greeted with a friendly and helpful voice, all without the need for a physical presence in your office. This not only saves you the cost of hiring and maintaining a full-time receptionist, but also means that you can focus on other important aspects of your business, while knowing that your customers’ needs are being taken care of.

    Are Virtual Receptionists Humans?

    Yes, all of our virtual receptionists are humans. Unlike automated answering systems or chatbots, our virtual receptionists are real people who are trained to handle various administrative tasks and responsibilities remotely. They can provide customer support, answer calls, and schedule appointments just like an in-house receptionist would. The only difference is that they work remotely, using technology to connect with clients and manage their tasks efficiently. All our virtual receptionists are UK-based and are trained to offer a human touch to your businesses, ensuring that callers are greeted professionally and their needs are taken care of in a personalised manner.

    Do You Offer An Out Of Hours Virtual Receptionist Service?


    If you need us to handle your phones and live chat out of hours that’s something we can help with.

    We can cover calls between:

    8am-8pm Monday-Friday

    9am-5:30pm Saturday

    10am-4pm Sunday
