Questions? Answers!

What Don’t You Do?

For starters, we don’t make you download yet another app or log in to a Member Services Area. You probably have enough on your phone already and enough websites to remember. Our receptionists are your receptionists. Text, email, or call them if you need to modify your service or go on vacation.

Custom Call Handling?

Of course! During your onboarding, we will collect information about you and your business so that our agents can deliver a personalized call answering service. Your virtual receptionist will sound like they are sitting in your office – minus the foot traffic.

Why Is The Price Lower?

We work smarter. We use technology that works with our virtual receptionists to reduce inefficiency while not sacrificing quality. Smith is saving you a bunch of money by keeping it simple. We’ve also stuck with the features professionals indicated they needed, and trimmed the ones they did not.

How Will I Receive Messages?

All calls received by the telephone answering service are transcribed and emailed to you at the end of each day. We also screen, prioritize and send an instant summary of each call via text message Monday – Friday, 6am–6pm PST / 9am–9pm EST.
