Outsourcing the Best Answering Service Virtual Assistants

Businesses are increasingly relying on different communication mediums to market their product or service, interact with internal stakeholders, and solve customer needs.

It’s becoming more important than ever to devote a solid amount of time to communications alone. This includes answering customer phone calls and emails, establishing client relationships, and answering customers’ questions and concerns promptly.

However, focusing on these essential tasks can take time away you could be putting on other activities that grow your business.

Businesses should be spending 25% of their working hours with customers. However, most business owners spend as little as 3% of their working time on customer service, according to the Harvard Business Review.

In today's world, where customers demand consistent and prompt responses from businesses, devoting this little time to customers can be problematic. What can explain this trend?

Sometimes one person or a small business doesn’t have the bandwidth to fully address all of these business needs. If they do, they may be losing the benefits of working on a similarly important activity that could grow their business.

That’s why we are offering our new Answering Service virtual assistant. Our virtual assistants can provide prompt, consistent, and even after-hours answering services in order to address all your customer needs.

You can save time you usually spend managing emails and answering phone calls, and focus more time on other activities that grow your business. Below are the types of tasks an answering service virtual assistant can do for you:

They can provide daily support on managing internal databases, and troubleshooting problems with upper management.
