Frequently asked questions.

  • What is an after-hours call answering service?

    An after-hours call answering service helps ensure that all calls to your business get answered promptly by a real person, even outside your working hours. It relies on a distributed network of live receptionists to help answer phone calls and engage in web chats. The response style is always professional and quick.

  • What is considered 'after hours'?

    After hours would include any calls that arrive after your business is closed, or before it opens. When it comes to your AnswerForce plan, all calls are charged at the same rate. There's no difference based on time of day, weekends, or holidays.

  • Who answers incoming calls outside of business hours?

    A team of live virtual receptionists, based in your country, works together across different time zones to ensure all your calls continue to be answered, day or night, 365 days a year.

  • What happens during weekends and other national holidays?

    We continue to answer all calls, 24/7/365. Your plan remains active and fully supported during weekends and holidays.

  • Will my callers know their calls are being supported by a third-party receptionist?

    Your team of dedicated receptionists represents your business. They follow an agreed script to ensure your business is always professionally represented. If they do not know the answer to a question, they will take the caller's details and arrange a call-back. Callers cannot usually tell that a third-party receptionist has answered.
