  • Never miss a new enquiry, even at times you are onsite or in meetings where you can’t pick up the phone
  • Prospective and future clients are given an impression of the utmost professionalism with our highly trained PAs answering your calls
  • Your virtual receptionist can drastically increase your own, and your teams productivity, and free up a huge amount of time day to day
  • Give your business the function of an in house receptionist all year round, without having to pay salary, pension, national insurance contributions

With our long history of providing Telephone Answering Service for the IT Sector you can be rest assured that your calls are always taken care of.

Telephone Answering Service for Small Businesses

How It Works

The Answer Centre will provide you with a telephone number that you can either advertise or divert your existing number to. You do not need any additional equipment to start using our service and we can have you set up in minutes.

We will answer calls in Your Company Name and sound exactly like your own company receptionist.

We can then transfer the caller through to you on your mobile or landline. If you are unavailable we can take a message and send it to you by either email or text message.

We have been utilising your services for the last 3 and a half years and may I say what a pleasure it has been to be assisted by your professional and diligent staff. I have always found the team to be more than helpful and polite when handling our company calls. You and your team have assisted me greatly in the growth of my business, right from the start. Keep up the excellent work. 

We have been using The Answer Centre for the last 6 months and the professional way in which our calls are dealt with have been an asset to our business. There are no longer missed calls, or customers hanging up as they are reluctant to leave a voicemail. I would not hesitate in recommending your services to others, knowing that they too would receive an excellent service.
