Answer4u Virtual Receptionist Services

With Answer4u's Virtual Receptionist Service a professional receptionist will answer all business calls in your company name, and then gathers the caller information that matters to you:

  • Their name
  • Their company name
  • Their contact number
  • A brief reason for their call

This information is immediately stored in your online client portal for you to access at any time but can also be sent to a specified email address or sent by text message if preferred.

We will either allocate you a number to advertise, or a number to seamlessly divert your calls through to.

When your call reaches our office your personalised script will flash up on our telephonist’s screen, enabling them to answer the phone in your company name and capture the information you require as your very own Virtual Receptionist.

We can provide you with a telephone number to use as your own. You can decide which type of number will be best for you, as we have a huge selection from freephone 0800 numbers, to specific area codes.

Each time the number is called our professional telephonists acting as your very own Virtual Receptionist will be ready to answer your calls.

You have the option at any point to take ownership of the number should you wish to, meaning you can choose to divert the calls to your own office or mobile.

If you require a number before the service goes live we are more than happy to accommodate this.

Simply sign up to one of our telephone answering services and we will supply you with your number within minutes, you can then use this number on your website and business cards and flyers prior to setting the telephone answering service live.

With both mobiles and landlines, diverting calls is simple and instant. You simply type a number into your keypad.  As each landline and mobile company has a unique set of instructions you will need to speak to your individual provider for guidance.

If you then need any further assistance in diverting your calls, your Account Manager will be able to talk you through it.

We recommend diverting all calls when you’re on holiday, in a meeting or have finished work for the day. You can also set your phones to divert calls after a certain number of rings and/or when your line is busy, ensuring you never, ever miss a call.

If you advertise more than one number, simply divert all of your numbers to your unique Answer4u number. There is no limit to the amount of calls we can take simultaneously for you.

Our telephonists normally deliver messages by text and email which are sent as soon as the call terminates. We provide a professional Virtual Receptionist Service at a fraction of the cost of employing your own staff.
