Live answering services that leave no customer unattended.

Get a real person to talk to your customers when you can’t.

Phone calls are a major source of opportunities for a business. Handled right, even a quick exchange over the phone can bring in new business or earn the loyalty of a troubled customer. But what do you do when your work keeps you from picking up the phone?

Live phone answering services give your business a simple, cost-efficient way to get a real person to answer your customers at any time. Message-taking and concierge services help you manage calls so that you can answer when you’re best prepared to. Virtual receptionists, meanwhile, can handle basic tasks over the phone so that you can stay focused.

Should your business get a live answering service?

Do you deal with several clients on the phone every day? Are phone calls a major source of leads for your business? Are you and your team unable to answer every call you get? Or are you sacrificing work to do so?

If you answered “yes” to any of those, then you should consider getting a live answering service. With Alltel’s live answering services, you can focus on critical work and impending deadlines while professional operators in our Australian-based call centre engage with your callers. It doesn’t matter whether it’s after-hours, the weekends, or a public holiday—you’ll never lose another customer to voice mail!

Never leave a customer hanging.

A professional answering service can take your calls whenever you need it to. Need it for after-hours calls only? For overflow during the day? Or all day, every day? These are all options you can choose.

You can also decide what kind of response your customers get, depending on your service. A professional virtual receptionist can handle basic tasks and queries, while a live answering service can take messages for you, so you can respond as soon as you’re ready. However you choose to set it up, your customers can always get a timely answer.
