How Telephone Answering Services Work

Telephone answering services ensure you always have the right support in place to provide your customers with consistent and effective communications.

Essentially a TAS is any company that answers incoming calls for other businesses, with calls being handled in a number of different ways depending on the nature of the sector and the caller’s need.

The sector is very diverse and services can come in many different shapes and sizes. They can include anything from simple call answering and voicemail for small businesses to total communications strategies for multinationals.

The Frontline Way

At Frontline, we handle around 20,000 calls each week and work closely with medium and large-sized clients to create tailored services that deliver clear results. Our work means your staff can maintain their focus on their core responsibilities and not get bogged down with calls, emails, social media monitoring and live chat during peak times.

A personalised approach

We understand that your time is precious and that while great customer communication is vital to your business, it may not be the core focus of your activities. Whatever level of support you need, be that helping out during peak times or managing the end-to-end customer experience, our highly skilled teams can always help enhance your customer care.

Setting up an effective and responsive communications strategy with Frontline begins with a simple conversation. Our team of highly experienced account managers take the time to get to know you and your business and to understand your key goals and the specific needs of your customers.

Specific business knowledge

Our teams of call handlers each focus on specific business sectors so will have an understanding of the kind of challenges your type of business may already face. They will then set out an action plan with you to create a workflow that best suits your needs.

Once the workflow is complete and agreed, we then turn this into a detailed document by collating rotas, assigning numbers, training teams and learning your internal systems.

We carefully monitor, track and report all data to provide valuable insight into your communications function. We can also arrange to implement either bespoke or standard reports to suit your specific needs.

Meeting your changing needs

At Frontline we understand that business is never static and changes to meet shifts in customer demand. After working closely with you to get the service running as quickly as possible, we continue to monitor its performance. From the moment the service is up and running we undergo a constant cycle of reviewing, refreshing and renewing the support we provide.

Larger customers and heavy-service users, get regular review meetings with their Frontline account manager as standard, ensuring we are always meeting expectations.

Engagement is also key to the success of the service so as it goes live we are happy to come and talk to your key stakeholders about who we are, the benefits we offer and how the process works.
