Customer Service

I am continuously looking for ways to improve on my business practices and so I am often adding what ever I think would enhance the service. I would like to have an answering service to take calls from my clients. Has anyone here used those services?What has been your experience?What company would you recommend?

    Hi, BestHealth.
    Have you considered using a toll free service? Depending on the service, you can record info about the services you offer, and prospects can either be forwarded directly to you or they can leave a message.
    With the system I use, I capture the telephone number for every person that calls, and I can set up different extensions to describe different services that I offer.
    If you want to check it out, go to www.updesk.com. The site describes it as a system for real estate agents, but it can actually be used by any small business.
    Best of luck!

    Customer Service is the most important in business. your local phone company can get you right up and running with adding a mailbox extension off your regular business line.
    When people call they receive and voice mail directing them to different departments. Just add and extra box saying FOR CUSTOMER FEEDBACK PRESS 4 and when someone leaves a feedback FOLLOW UP WITHIN 24HRS. It should be just a few dollars a month
