What is a live answering service?

Live telephone answering services help answer your calls whenever you can’t. It gives your business a warm and friendly voice on the phone, so your customers always feel important. It doesn’t matter whether it’s after-hours, the weekends, or a public holiday—we’re here to answer your calls 24/7, 365 days a year.

Our live operators are all Australian-based and professionally trained to handle business calls. Your calls are answered off-site, so you get round the clock support without blowing your budget. It’s just like we’re answering calls from your office!

How phone answering services work

Your answering service works by redirecting calls from your 1300/1800 numbers, landlines, VoIP, or mobile phones to our live answering centre. You can use it to answer all your calls, or as back-up for overflow, after-hours, and holiday calls.

When your customers call, one of our live operators answers in your business name and takes a message for you. No need to scribble notes and risk mixing up names or numbers—you'll be immediately notified through SMS and email, so you can review each message as they come.
