Virtual Telephone Reception Service

What’s the difference between an answering service and a virtual telephone receptionist?
Answering services are often impersonal and state “I’m just an answering service.” They are not perceived as a member of your business. At Office Alternatives, our receptionists present themselves as an extended member of your team.
What can my receptionist do?
Office Alternatives’ receptionists answer your company’s calls with the desire to delight and wow your clients. They can answer the calls within 4 rings, connect calls to you and your staff as directed (Cell, Voicemail, Another number), take messages, screen your calls, return calls on your behalf, answer some common questions your company gets, and take messages to email or text you.
What number do you use? How does it work?
You can forward your company phone number to Office Alternatives (usually*87), port your number to us, or we can give you a phone number, including a matching 800# for a low price.
How long does it take to get setup?
Once setup, we start answering calls within hours for your business and handling the calls as directed.
Is there a contract?
No, our services are month to month
How do you answer the calls if you’re virtual?
Typically, the call is answered by a virtual receptionist with a greeting you choose or a standard greeting. The receptionist asks for the caller’s name and reason or calling.

The receptionist contacts you or your team members as directed. You will know it’s one one of your OA answered calls by seeing our name as the caller ID. You can then screen the call and ask the receptionist to redirect it to another team member, your voicemail, take a message etc. If accepting the call, the call is transferred immediately.

If you decline the call, the receptionist handles as you direct.

What Our Clients Are Saying!

Lightwork Digital Influence

When a potential web development client suggests we meet at a coffee shop, it really gets their attention when I suggest we meet at my office... and ask if they prefer east or west of the Rio Grande.
