Home | We answer your phones and emails | Virtual Receptionist

TMC makes it easy to outsource your switchboard and virtual reception needs. Our locally based, live answering service can answer all your calls or assist only in overflow periods. Avoid diverting your clients to voice mail because we work while you sleep or when you’re busy, and use TMC’s after hours virtual receptionist services.

A virtual office receptionist makes better sense for both large and small businesses as you save money on dedicated in-house receptionists, and we can provide support by handling your after-hours calls so your company has a personalised point of contact 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.

Looking For An Affordable Virtual Receptionist?

When using our switchboard and reception services, calls are diverted away from your business to our professional customer service team. This can be whenever you or your clients need, or only during set periods. Using a script you’ve already approved, we answer your calls and action them according to your directions.

During the day you may want to have important calls warm transferred to nominated personnel or only have messages forwarded to you in real time via SMS. Overnight you may opt to receive a call log the following morning. We can contact you with messages that suit you best. Your team will always be informed of essential messages as we also offer escalation management processes which we can develop for you, to your specifications.

When we pick up your calls, our staff will ask the caller all of your relevant questions and keep detailed records of client information. No searching for on-the-go messages on scraps of paper – we will organise your calls with all the essential details. We can even coordinate the preferred time and date your customer would like to be called back. Our virtual reception services ensure your customers receive great service and our professional customer service operators can represent your brand as if they work in-house with you.

I run a small business and need to be “on the tools’ most of the day. When someone told me about TMC and their simple approach to taking my calls, I went straight to them. They take messages and let me know if there is anything urgent to be dealt with. I didn’t know I had that much time available!
