A 24/7 call answering service is an answering service staffed by friendly, professional customer experience experts who can answer your customer calls day or night. Excellent for after-hour calls or daytime overflow calls, a 24/7 answering service ensures your customers always reach a live person and receive superior customer care no matter when they call your business.
Setting up call answering services is a straightforward process. First, select your desired plan. Then, complete a simple form and redirect your calls to the designated number. As calls come in, our amiable staff will respond per your instructions—either forwarding the call to you directly or taking down a message and promptly notifying you.
Phone carriers offer various options for call forwarding to Techception. The most common is manual call forwarding, where you choose the line to forward and dial an access code followed by the forwarding number. Another option is Busy No Answer forwarding, which sends calls to us if your line is busy or unanswered after a set number of rings. Remote call forwarding allows you to forward calls from anywhere.
Some use advanced phone systems for forwarding, check with your provider or phone options on how to forwards calls.
We provide all account holders with a unique forwarding phone number. You forward your calls to that number and when the number rings at our contact center, the agent answers in your company name and follows your account instructions.
Transitioning is simple — you can conveniently forward calls from your own number to the Techception-provided phone number whenever you prefer to have your calls answered by Techception. This approach offers you greater flexibility, allowing you to seamlessly switch between managing calls personally and utilizing Techception's professional call answering services. This not only enhances your overall communication strategy but also ensures that you can adapt to different circumstances and preferences with ease.
