How Does Voicemail Work With An Offsite Virtual Receptionist?
Most clients, before they join Smiledog, are familiar with voicemail and how it works. In fact, many of our clients were using voicemail as a de facto receptionist before coming to Smiledog and enjoying the benefits of a live answer to their incoming calls. When a client joins the Smiledog family, they’re given a voicemail account, which is utilized in a few different ways.
Aren’t All Calls Answered Live?
You might be wondering, “Wait! I’m looking for virtual reception, not another voicemail service.” Of course, we understand that! Your Smiledog voicemail during business hours is strictly used for confidential messaging that is “for your ears only.” Most clients don’t have urgent, private messaging, but we don’t want to close off that option to our clients, especially those in sensitive occupations like an attorney, doctor, or accountant. The only time your caller would be routed to voicemail during our daytime hours is in this “confidential” scenario.
After Hours Voicemail Answering
The other use for your Smiledog voicemail box is after hours, when the office is closed. Our typical client receiving a call after hours will have their incoming calls routed to voicemail. Those messages are automatically emailed out and the client can play the message as soon as they receive it, either online or you can call in, if you prefer. This is a terrific way to keep up on your messages, even if you’re at home. Even if someone has an urgent after hours need, you’ll get that message as soon as possible.
