Appointment Confirmation & Scheduling

Caller ID Capture

Capture of Caller ID (Automatic Number Identification) is available for you on every message, enabling you to see the phone number the caller called from. We can even capture the Caller ID when callers call into our voicemail system. This enables you to return phone calls, even when no message is left by the caller. Caller ID is captured when available.

Answer Quick can download the client database information you provide from a spreadsheet or we can create one for you. Databases could include names, addresses, phone, the caller’s account number, product type, serial numbers or any information that would be relevant to processing your phone calls more efficiently. We can also add to your database with new caller information so that the next time the call is received our operators have instant access to information already given, enhancing your caller’s experience.

Daytime Answer / After Hours Voicemail

We can provide you with a more professional image by delivering live agent answering Monday through Friday, with after hours, weekend and holiday callers going to voicemail. We can customize your live answer based on your own business hours. This is a perfect solution for offices with fewer than 20 employees. Let us provide the technology so you don’t have to!

Provide your callers with the most convenient location to obtain your products or services by using our Dealer Locate Service.

We can provide you with a local number or a toll free number to keep you connected and keep your business operating in the event of an emergency.

Secure Message Dispatching (HIPAA Compliant)

Our Secure Message App keeps your messages secure and is HIPAA Compliant. Not only for medical practioners, this application is for anyone who wants messages kept secure, and wants to be able to track delivery to the device. Manage all your secure devices through a cloud based application, which also allows you to send a receive messages. Our secure message application also allows peer-to-peer communication, meaning that you can communicate directly without going through the answering service, and you can also communicate with other people who are using the same application.

Fax Line / Overflow Fax Line

We can provide you with an extra fax line, so that if your fax is busy, the fax will be directed to your private Answer Quick fax number. All received faxes are then forwarded to your email address.

Help Desk

Let our staff handle your help desk. Using our Internet capabilities we can open tickets and dispatch directly either from your web-based system or we can create your Help Desk at Answer Quick by defining Q & A forms to enable our agents to handle the calls and even dispatch to the appropriate on-call staff when desired.


This feature allows you to log into an online portal to view your messages. As always, messages are dated and time stamped. The message will be presented within the form that was set up specifically for each type of message we take for you. Your messages are stored online for 29 days. You may print the message or copy and paste the desired message. You can even save it to a file on your desktop.

Operator Services

Real people, doing real work. And they're friendly too.

Your message form or information form is customized to meet the special needs of your business, so that you can provide your customers with the service they deserve.

Message delivery can be accomplished using text message devices, cell phones, pagers, voicemail, fax, email and via our web accessible Dashboard.

We can also handle your daytime overflow traffic – your callers will get answers, not busy signals. The information is then promptly routed to the appropriate person. No missed opportunities.

In addition to investing in ongoing training and accreditation for our staff, we invest in the latest technology so that your business benefits from the efficiency and convenience that technology provides, such as web access to messages and on call schedules, advanced scripting, and the ability to receive emailed messages from you and your clients in addition to voice messages.

We can deliver to your customers the option to request information or buy from you 24 hours a day. We can take your orders on line at your website, or we can program your order form in our system.

Once our equipment receives your command, the message is filed, with no further action needed by you or our staff.

Some callers need your personal and immediate attention. We can quickly connect the caller directly to an individual, a department or whatever number you designate, all per your instructions.

Virtual Receptionist Services

Our professional customer service representatives can handle your calls during office hours and direct callers to the appropriate person, or take a message (if that person is not available) or we can transfer the inbound caller to voicemail.

Virtual Phone Systems / Voicemail Services

Call Transfer

Your voicemail box can give callers the option of speaking with you or a member of your staff simply by pressing a button. You can give callers this information during your greeting, or the information can be given to your key customers as a “back door” way to reach you.

Custom Services are available. Just give us a call!

Intelligent Message Delivery Options

  • We can send you a text message as “message waiting” along with the Caller ID included in the text message.
  • We can send your voice message delivered via email as a .wav file (sound card required). Caller ID included in subject line of message.
  • We can provide you with a digital pager notification
  • We can send your voice message to your cell phone allowing you to play the recorded message.

Screened Patching of Callers / Follow Me

Callers are greeted and prompted to state their name. They are then asked to “please stay on the line while I try to reach your party”. While the caller is waiting the system will call the number you left to reach you. Once the system reaches you, the caller’s name is played for you (in the caller’s own voice) and you are given the option of accepting or declining the call. If you accept, you are immediately connected to your caller. If you decline the call, or the system doesn’t reach you, your caller is prompted to leave a message. This helps you manage your time, while still being available to take only the most important phone calls.

Website Customer Support

Our staff can access your website and provide assistance to your customers by giving directions, accessing on line databases, and taking orders. Don't let another customer take their business elsewhere because of unanswered questions about your product or service. Keep your website open by providing a telephone number that is answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We will access your website and provide assistance to your customers by accessing on line databases and taking orders from customers who would prefer to speak to a real person or who may be frustrated making on line purchases.

Web Programmable on Call Schedule

Manage your on call schedule from the web. You can add and delete information, make updates and changes easily and quickly. Once the information is submitted, it is instantly updated for our operators so that the correct individual is contacted even when last minute changes are made.

Voicemail with Operator Access

Use a combination of voicemail and operators to provide your company with the most efficient mix of services.
Your personalized voicemail greeting can be recorded with a single greeting or we can provide different menu choices that can give your customers information about operating hours, provide department lists with individual greetings or with a simple option to press Zero for immediate assistance. We can also play a holiday message on your observed holidays, and we customize your message during special circumstances like closures due to bad weather or other unexpected events.

You may also offer callers the option to leave private voicemail messages.

Our Receptionist Plus service gives you the option of using operators during your normal business hours, with a personalized voicemail greeting playing during your non-business hours with or without the option to press zero.

Another choice would be to have callers greeted by an operator and then transferred to the appropriate voicemail box. Your voicemail can also be set up to perform pages or notify the individual if desired.
