The Virtual Receptionist for Your Business

At Answering Innovations, we know how important it can be to have someone who is always available to answer telephone calls for you. The voice your customer hears after dialing your number is a critical first impression for your business. It's imperative to avoid calls that go straight to voicemail for risk of losing customers and business. It goes without saying that failing to answer at all will drive your customers elsewhere.

According to salary.com, hiring a traditional receptionist costs more than $30,000 per year excluding benefits. A professional virtual receptionist, on the other hand, costs a fraction of that amount. Plus, unlike a traditional receptionist, our virtual receptionists can answer a sudden influx of simultanous calls, never go out to lunch, and are always available—even after hours. Don't suffer when business is booming; choose Answering Innovations as your virtual receptionist service.

Make us your virtual receptionist and all of your calls will be answered 24/7 by our specially trained virtual receptionists who take pride in recording accurate and detailed messages based on your specifications and who will capture all the information you require for every call—every time. We’ve been in business for over three decades. Find out why we are known as “The Perfect Answer” and let us answer for your business today.
