Our January special offer of additional savings on our call answering service for Accountants has proved very popular here at The Answer Centre.
During the month of January any accountancy business signing up for our Pay As You Go call answering service received a discount of 50% on their first service invoice.
Several accountancy firms decided to take up the offer and initial feedback has been very positive.
The proprietor of one of those firms who runs her own accountancy business in Birmingham took advantage of the offer and commented:
“To be completely honest I was already considering using a call answering service, so when The Answer Centre contacted me at the start of the year with details of their discount offer on their call answering service for accountants it was perfect timing! January is a very busy month for most accountants as we need to meet the 31st January HMRC deadline for submitting tax returns so it is extremely helpful to have a professional call answering service like The Answer Centre pick up my calls and takes messages. This frees me up and allows me to work uninterrupted in the knowledge that if something really important does crop up I will receive a message from my Virtual Assistant”.
“The other thing that has surprised me is that since starting to use The Answer Centre’s call answering service, many of my existing clients have started to view my business in a different light. One client asked if I was expanding as I now had my own dedicated receptionist while another remarked at how professional and friendly my new receptionist sounded!”

Telephone answering services are playing a bigger part than ever before in helping small businesses to grow in the early stages of development.
Research has now shown that when a small business is in the early stages of growth, missing inbound calls can have a detrimental effect on the growth of the business.
Small businesses with up to two or three members of staff cannot normally justify having an employee dedicated to answering incoming telephone calls, which means that new business enquiries will inevitably get lost.
By employing the services of a Telephone Answering Service provider such as The Answer Centre a small business can ensure that new sales enquiries are not missed, thus ensuring that the business will grow at the optimum rate. Having access to a Virtual Assistant or Virtual PA to answer your calls means that as a small business owner you can get on with building your business without worrying about missed calls.
Additional benefits of using such a call answering service include the fact that when calls are received they are always handled consistently and professionally thus creating a good first impression to callers. How often do you call a small business and hear a voicemail greeting before hanging up and calling the next supplier in the list?
