How Much Does an Answering Service Cost?

If you have been looking for a telephone answering service online, chances are you’ve become a bit discouraged by what you find. Many companies do not post the true cost of a virtual receptionist or virtual answering service, leaving you to sign up and cross your fingers instead. We don’t think researching the question of “answering service cost” should be so complicated. That’s why we put that information up front.

That Time I Inquired about Evoice Virtual Receptionist Pricing

We like to keep things simple at Smith, and there is a reason for that. We believe that small businesses have enough to worry about without having to spend all their time setting up tools. That’s why our prices are clearly spelled out, and we weren’t afraid to directly compare ourselves to others. We think that being upfront helps you save money and time, which is exactly what our services aim to do.

Which Call Answering Solution Will You Choose?

At Smith, we love options! Not just because they keep our engineers busy, but because they allow us to build the perfect solution for our Pros. Since we’ve launched, we’ve had the incredible opportunity to build a variety of customizations to meet some unique call answering needs. Because the list just keeps growing, here is where you can go to find them all:

Introducing Live Transfer

When we first launched, we spoke with numerous pros about the features they found important. Surprisingly, live transfer (also known as “warm phone call transfer”) was not at the top of the list. Instead, our pros wanted an answering service that would free up their time, and reduce the amount of calls they received. As our business grew, we decided it was time to revisit this feature. Now, after some significant updates to our already streamlined system, we introduce Smith Live Transfer.

Email Messaging – Because Sometimes Your Phone Deserves a Break answering services features an intelligent messaging system that helps you screen and prioritize your calls. An integral part of that service is the instant call summary sent almost immediately after your call. When we first started, we sent it out via text message, but as we grew, our pros indicated their needs had grown. Here is a story of how one of our pros used Smith to support the customer service team of their busy online storefront.

How Smith Can Make You a Better “Virtual” Lawyer

If you’re a lawyer, you have probably heard or read about virtual practices. In fact, according to results from the BA Legal Technology Survey Report, there’s a chance you may already be in one. In 2013, 5% of attorneys defined their practice as “virtual”. For those lawyers and anyone else considering a leap into the virtual world, is the perfect solution.
