What if I go over my call allowance?

Should you go over your Lite, Standard or Professional call allowance you will be charged £1.50 per each call our receptionists take for you.

Call Transfer option

For an additional £2.99 per month (plus standard rate call charges) you can take up our call transfer option.

This is useful if you want to allow us to attempt to transfer calls of a certain nature directly to you, or another specified employee within your organisation.

For example, if you give us prior knowledge that you would like all new business enquiries to be transferred to you, our receptionists will place the customer on hold and give you a call to let you know there is a new business enquiry, and ask you to confirm whether you would like the call transferred to you.

"Ensures that I never miss a sales lead"

"When I can't get to the phone, my calls are transferred to my answering service provided by Simply66. All calls are answered in my own business name and my messages emailed to me straight away, along with a recording of the call. It's a great service, well priced and ensures that I never miss a sales lead. I've been using the service for about a year now and I'm very happy."

"They even remember who has called before!"

"The Virtual Receptionist service is great for my business as I'm often in meetings with existing clients. You can request a mobile number to route to if it's an important sales enquiry or have them take a message so you can call back later. Best of all, each call is recorded so you can hear first hand how polite and helpful the staff are – they even remember who has called before!"
