We’re often asked if there is a difference between the job responsibilities of a call center and an answering service. While in most cases the functions are the same, there can be differences. One way to differentiate the two is by describing the type of assistance provided to the caller. While both types of service entail answering calls within four rings—most times sooner—an answering service is mostly taking information that a customer provides so that the intended person can quickly get back to them.
An answering service is often less message taking and more in assistance of the caller, such as taking an order or helping answer a question about shipment. Our answering services can provide help desk support, appointment scheduling, basic answers to questions, and make reservations.
