Today, it is not uncommon for businesses to be run with nothing more than a laptop and a smartphone. With property prices on the increase and the economy still unstable, many people decide that it just isn’t worth it to invest in office space, and are instead attracted to cheaper and more convenient options. For many, this may mean working from home, hot desking in shared office spaces, or even travelling the world.
However appealing it may be to jump on a plane and take care of business by the pool, not having a stable address can of course throw up some challenges. For instance, if you aren’t in a position to rent a shared space, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to employ a team of staff to help tackle your workload. Running a company takes a lot of time and effort, and even the most dedicated business owner would struggle to work completely alone.
In this situation, many people decide to employ the services of a business answering service. Opting for a professional call handling service ensures that there’s always someone on the other side of the phone, even if you’re on a plane, in a meeting, or simply enjoying some well-deserved downtime. At Message Direct, we’ve designed our message taking services with businesses in mind. Our call handlers are trained to deliver excellent customer service and will behave as if they are your very own personal assistant, helping you maintain your professional reputation.
Repeatedly missing calls or not recording messages properly will cost you business opportunities and could make you seem incompetent. With our message taking services, however, you’ll never miss a message again. Our operators are dedicated to answering all calls within 6 seconds – the fastest response time in the industry – and will forward the relevant information to you immediately, ready for you to respond when you have the time. You’ll even be able to choose between receiving this information via email, fax or text message, so you can customise our services depending on where you are in the world and what resources you have available.
