Perfectly matched services with the new Connect Bundle

Capture all leads through a bundled 1300 number with answering service.

Calls are often your first point of contact with customers. But with more than one task pulling in you different directions, it’s not practical to sit by your phone all-day waiting for clients and suppliers to call. A 1300 number and live answering bundle lets you customise which of your phones ring and when, while lending your business a professional voice to answer calls when you can’t.

Why does your business need a 1300 number with answering service?

An inbound number offers you mobility through customised routing schemes that redirect calls to different answerpoints. Calls to your 1300 number can be answered on a fixed line or mobile. But what happens when you can’t answer any of your devices?

Adding a live answering service provides your business additional support without the need to hire and train an in-house receptionist. A phone answering service can serve as an overflow option during busy seasons or an after-hours solution to capture all leads.

Alltel’s Connect Bundle is the ideal call bundle for startups, home offices, and SMEs looking for a flexible and professional way of managing business calls.
