Benefits of a Virtual Receptionist Service

Waking up to an inbox stacked with unanswered emails or dealing with a full voicemail box can make you feel like you’re working off the back foot. As an entrepreneur or small business proprietor, you shouldn’t have to expend your energy dealing with administrative tasks. You should be focusing on what really matters: managing your employees and running your business!

The Essential Art of Delegating

Just because you have a team of employees doesn’t mean that delegating administrative tasks to whoever’s handy is a good idea. Unless they are trained and have the time to devote to these tasks, the work will be inconsistent, disorganized, and calls won’t always be answered in a timely manner. Without proper administration, phone calls and clients can slip through the cracks; their needs—and yours—may not be met, and poor organization can drag you down. You need to streamline your efforts; to work smarter, not harder. You need a receptionist.

When Budgets are Tight

Perhaps you feel like you can’t justify—or afford—a full-time receptionist, and that’s understandable. As a small business proprietor, you have to run a tight ship and make sure you’re getting the most out of every dollar. Having an employee whose exclusive role is answering calls, handling phone inquiries, and running quality control on each interaction may not make sense, especially if you’re not doing enough business to make an entire day’s work out of those tasks.

So what are your options when you need administrative personnel but can’t justify hiring a full-time receptionist? The answer is simpler than you think. Remote reception services are just like the real thing. You get the time, dedication, and expertise of an administrator working from your business’s front desk. But the difference is that instead of paying your receptionist a full salary for working 9-5, five days a week, you only pay for the time they spend on the phone with your clientele. 

How it Works

A virtual receptionist can be a freelance worker or operate under the banner of a larger organization like Fusion Workplaces! Essentially, they are flexible and highly-trained employees who offer their reception services on-demand for your business. A virtual receptionist provides impeccable customer service, and their training comes at no additional cost to you. So why are reception services right for you?

When you retain their services, virtual receptionists are already fully equipped to handle all your business needs. They are trained for a wide range of scenarios and are prepared to handle requests and inquiries, take down client information, transfer calls, and schedule appointments. But if you have other needs that are specific to your business, a virtual receptionist can do that, too. You can customize your client’s caller experience with a personalized greeting, special call-handling instructions, and FAQs that are specific to your organization.

A virtual receptionist offers you the best of both worlds: organized, professional, consistent, and knowledgeable reception services at your fingertips, with added flexibility at a fraction of the price. Let us show you how reception services are right for you! Reach out today to learn how to get started.
