Professionally answer your business calls, chats, texts, and social messages — we’ll help you do it all.
Locally nicknamed "The Couve", Vancouver, Washington is one of the most populated cities in the Pacific Northwest. Located in the southwest, Vancouver borders another major city: Portland, Oregon.
Known for its riverside views, Vancouver has lots of iconic attractions, such as the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, for visitors and locals alike to take advantage of. Vancouver is often recognized as a nationwide leader in the healthcare industry and is considered a hotspot for culture, medicine, news, and technology. Vancouver remains one of largest cities in the Northwest.
Vancouver is one of the most beloved cities in the Pacific Northwest, with diverse communities, top-tier schools, and wonderful housing opportunities. That’s why it comes as no surprise that the average price to rent an office in Vancouver is about $22 per sq.ft. That amounts to $3,300 for a small, 150 sq.ft. office! Adding in a receptionist’s office, which average around 40 sq.ft., can take up more space than necessary, shoveling more money towards rent and less money towards your business.
Virtual receptionists at Smith.ai always work remotely from a quiet home office, saving you office space and putting money right back into your pocket. Learn more about the differences between a full-time receptionist vs. a virtual receptionist.
Unfortunately, in-house receptionists can only do so much. Most receptionists multitask answering phone calls with other receptionist duties, like errands and general office assistance. Even with multiple receptionists, phone calls can and will be missed when they call in sick, need time off, or are preoccupied with their other responsibilities. As much as 25% of calls come in after-hours and on weekends, so even beyond these regular interruptions to call answering, there are real numbers that affect your business.
While virtual receptionists may not be able to restock office supplies or grab you coffee, they can offer unlimited quality support 24/7 so that your business doesn’t have to stop when your in-office workers do. Why not try it to see for yourself risk-free with our 14-day money-back guarantee?
Calls come in and your team may not always be able to answer.

Building reliable customer service in Vancouver doesn’t have to end when callers hang up the phone. Our virtual receptionists send you and members of your staff a detailed summary after every call. We also offer text and email follow-up messages to nurture leads who call and even make outbound calls to leads who complete your web forms online. Just let us know who to call or forward your phone call tasks to us and we can use your business number as our caller ID so it always looks like we’re in-house and calling from your Vancouver office. We make sure that your team stays up-to-date on clients’ information and that your callers have every opportunity to reach you.
Smith.ai’s answering service isn’t limited to phone calls. We use social media, live web chats, and text messages to connect with your clients so no matter how they reach out, you can always connect with a live, friendly agent. It’s especially important for businesses with Facebook pages, VoIP phones that have texting enabled, and websites that attract potential clients to allow clients more than one way to have their questions answered. Our multi-channel coverage makes it easier to scale sales communications under a single provider – no more messing with one vendor for chat, one vendor for texting, one vendor for Facebook Messenger, and one vender for calls. It’s all handled under one roof at Smith.ai.
Even our most expensive plan, the Pro plan, is about $40,000 less than the yearly salary of an in-house receptionist, and we still have capabilities they likely don’t. But if you’re not considering a receptionist, you might not have considered the real cost of all your daily interruptions.
Give us a try and find out.
No problem. Just tell us what hours you want us to answer, and calls outside your set answering hours can go to a number you choose, or to voicemail. Or, if you're using something fancy like RingCentral, you can set up your forwarding to only forward during those hours.
The great thing about per-call pricing is that it doesn't matter if we answer calls for you 24/7 or 2 hours a day— the pricing is the same.
Nope. We’ll simply ask you a few questions about your business and how you would like your calls to be answered. Our receptionists will handle all your calls in an unscripted, natural manner.
We customize call handling according to your business and the type of caller. After a personalized greeting, we can screen leads using your questions, take messages, book appointments on your calendar, or transfer calls to your line.
