How does the service work?

Conceptually, to have Answers team handle your company calls is very simple. Answers have leased thousands of telephone numbers from its telecommunication provider.  

These numbers are connected into the Answers call centre platform ready to accept calls. The Answers team will allocate you exclusive use of one of these numbers.  

You, the Client, will simply divert your calls to the exclusive number provided by Answers by 'call diversion' either manually or through your telecommunications provider (Spark, Vodafone, CallPlus etc). Answers will talk you through it. 

Your calls will connect to Answers system, displaying your call handling instructions. The Answers professional Customer Service Representative will take it from there.

How do I get my messages or call details?

Answers system is connected to practically all channels of delivery. The team are able to deliver your call details via mobile text (SMS), telephone, fax, email, web portal or VPN connection.

What about reporting?

Due to the wide variety of reporting requirements, the Answers team deliver call details daily, weekly or monthly in a CSV format. This allows you to manipulate the data in any way you want.

How much does it cost?

Very little is the answer! Most of Answers packages cost less than the value of your morning tea per day. Answers charge a monthly service fee plus call handling charges.
