A message service is a professional call answering service where a live virtual receptionist answers your calls and greets callers with a business or personal name. She will take a message from the caller including their name, phone number and a message. The message details are then sent to you by email or SMS.

Many callers can be frustrated when their call is not answered or is diverted to a voice mail. Research has shown that callers prefer to speak to a live person. This improves their experience when they call, which increases sales and customer loyalty. Calls can also be screened so that time is not wasted answering unnecessary calls. Being able to see messages, you can more easily prioritise who to call and when helping you to be more productive with your valuable time.

With the MyReceptionist service a live receptionist answers and routs your calls exactly as you require such that callers will think our receptionist is sitting in your office. So a typical greeting might be: “Good morning/afternoon [your company name], Jenny speaking, how may I help you?”

Calls can be introduced and transferred to the relevant staff member or a message taken which is instantly sent via email and / or SMS to the relevant staff member.

The receptionists are also able to provide callers with information about your company such as your address, web site address, what your business does, your fax number etc.

The Message Express Message Service still has a live receptionist answering the phone in your business name but the greeting must be: “Good morning/afternoon [your company name]. May I have your message please?”

This gives callers the impression we are an answering service. The receptionist cannot answer any questions but merely takes a message which can be emailed and / or SMS’d to you. Calls cannot be introduced and transferred to you or staff with the Message Express Service.

You can upgrade to the MyReceptionist service at any time from the Message Express Message Service and vice versa.

What our customers love

OfficeHQ takes a message which goes to every staff mobile/email so the right department can return the call soon after. This allows the staff to prioritise their time.

As a small and nimble team, we don’t have capacity to manage new lead phone calls on a regular basis. OfficeHQ helps us manage these call-backs on our schedule.
Michael Papandrea, Small Business Bundles
We’re confident that not one of our valuable leads will be missed no matter the time of day.
