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.
When a customer calls Barnett Medical Services the matter is urgent. The medical waste disposal industry is highly regulated; waste from medical facilities needs to be disposed of and treated in a limited number of days. Waste removal companies like Barnett Medical Services must answer every phone call and schedule the waste pick-up immediately. Smaller medical facilities are usually up against a deadline by the time they call for waste removal. These clients will face fines if the phone goes unanswered!
Barnett Medical Services met AA Professional Communications (a subsidiary of Tel-Com) over 15 years ago when they were located in the same building. The office staff at Barnett was feeling the stress of customer deadlines as the company grew. Receptionists were tripping over each other answering the phones, and then losing time for the more important tasks of completing the waste disposal job. It was time to try an answering service!
Rich, owner of Barnett Medical Services, noticed the immediate stress reduction in the office. As the phones quieted down the office staff was able to concentrate and complete tasks efficiently. "It would not be cost-effective for me to have someone in-house doing what they do," Rich notes, "Now we use our resources in a more productive manner; they've saved me a lot of money!"
"The answering service is excellent at triaging urgent calls and getting them to me immediately. They keep our communication line accurate, detailed and timely! We are growing at a rate of 30% a year because we communicate with our customers!"
Tel-Com and AA Professional Communications appreciate the opportunity to work with time-critical businesses like Barnett Medical Services. We are honored to be your support team! Please contact us for more information about taking advantage of Tel-Com's services.
