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.
Call Answering Service
Our Call Answering Service will ensure that you never miss another call.
Research has shown that 7 out of 10 callers will immediately hang up when they hear an answering machine, so it is vitally important that all incoming calls are answered by a real person.
Even if your business only receives calls very occasionally, a single call can often lead to a significant amount of business. With our Pay As You Go Call Answering Service we offer an extremely cost effective solution as you only pay for the calls that we answer for you.
Your calls will be answered in your company name, giving the impression to callers that you have your own dedicated company receptionist.
This can be very important in creating the right image for small businesses as some callers still have concerns about using suppliers who only have a very small number of employees.
When you start to use our service we will discuss the call handling with you in some detail so that we know exactly how you would like your calls handled in all situations.
We are extremely flexible in the way that we handle your calls so the more information you can give us about your business the better, as we aim to sound as if we are an employee of your business.
Calls are always answered in your company name and you can choose for us to either transfer callers through to you, or alternatively we can take a detailed message and forward the message to you by email and text message. There is no additional charge for sending you messages by email or text message as that is all included within your cost per call of 99 pence.
We will hold contact details on our system for all of your employees that we may need to contact. The Answer Centre can effectively become a call handling hub for your business as we can transfer calls and send messages to all of your staff regardless of their location.
We have been providing our telephone answering service and answering calls since we opened for business on 1st June 2000. It’s what we do. Our customers regularly tell us that we have become quite good at it!

Our customers often receive glowing messages from their callers about what an excellent receptionist they have hired!

Just wanted to say that I’m very impressed with the service so far, I think you’ve only taken two calls and I’ve already had one customer mention in an email that he was very impressed with Claire, “our” new member of staff!
Just a quick note to say thank you and I was very happy with the service your company provided whist I was away on holiday last week, it certainly took the pressure off and meant I didn’t have to check my phone for messages all the time!
