Answering Service Success
24 Hour Answering Service How would you like to boost your profits and get a little free time starting this week? Tel-Com has been answering phones since 1985. We have the knowledge and experience to be the voice of your company! We take great pride in representing your company over the phone, assisting your customers and helping your business grow.
So how does that boost my profits? 85% of new callers will hang up and move on to your competition if the phone is still ringing after 5 tones or worse, if it goes to voicemail. Caller confidence and trust begins the moment they hear a real person and that translates into doing business with you. Just the crucial business step of having a person answer your callers live, even if only to take a message and reach the intended person with a text message or email, will guarantee you the opportunity to gain a new customer.
I've got doubts. An answering service is not for everyone, and we will be the first to tell you that Tel-Com may not be the right fit for you. Our retention rate is 99% because we hand-pick businesses that we know will succeed in our program. Your success is our success. Neither of us benefit if we are a mismatch and we’ll be the first to help find what does work for your business. We support each client’s business success through our 30 years of experience in Best Practices and superior customer service.
“I don’t know what I ever did without Tel-Com,” says Lori Ann Stone, sales manager at A1 RV Sales and Body Shop. A1 provides sales, service, and parts for recreational vehicles.
With a very busy staff, there was no way to meet the demands of answering every phone call or even listening to the answering machine. “Many walk-in clients require our complete attention,” Stone says. “We did not want to ever miss a call.”
Like being open 24/7.
When people take their RVs out on the weekends, A1 needs to be available in case there is an accident. With Tel-Com, the body shop was not only open during business hours but available 24/7. “With Tel-Com answering our phones, we are now able to get with anyone who is in need when they are in need,” says Stone.
How the answering service works.
When a customer calls, and A1 staff are unable to pick up by the fifth ring ( with clients, after hours or holidays) the call is automatically forwarded to the answering service. Tel-Com picks up, takes the message and immediately sends it to the designated A1 team member. “Whether we are meeting with customers, it’s after hours, or on weekends, Tel-Com captures all the business that we might otherwise have missed out on.”
· phones are forwarded 24/7
· Rings 1 – 5 to A1 shop
· 6th ring forwards to Tel-Com
· message taken and immediate dispatch
An answering service you can count on.
Stone says she would not do anything different in regard to using Tel-Com answering services. Not only does she appreciate what Tel-Com does for A1 business, she has a great relationship with their staff. “They are really terrific!”
