How Do We Do It?

Our modern facility is equipped with a computerized message system that receives all incoming calls and automatically directs them to an operator that we carefully select, train and supervise. We stress having a "Voice with a Smile" along with the skills of efficiency and accuracy of taking your messages.

All messages are time & date stamped by the phone system as received, and in most cases, also recorded by the source's Caller ID as well as the ID of the operator. All actions taken on your behalf are recorded as well, including delivery methods and time of delivery.

All of this provides you with complete & accurate documentation of all messages. Messages are also retained for 90 days in the event any need to be reviewed. It should also be noted that all lines into our offices are voice recorded for both training purposes as well as accuracy backup of information if ever needed.

The actual taking and recording of the message from your callers is only half of the task. Delivering that message to you accurately and in a timely manner is equally as important. Bel-Tone Answering Service has multiple options available that can be used individually or in any combination that serves you and your callers best.

Methods of Delivery Include:

  • HOLD for later call in
  • HOLD & DELIVER on a pre-determined schedule by fax or email service
  • IMMEDIATELY deliver to you by PAGER, FAX, EMAIL in real time
  • SCREEN CALLS and alter the message delivery to reflect the urgency of the message (For example, routine messages could be held for the regular delivery method, but a message determined to be an emergency could be delivered immediately)
  • COMBINE DELIVERY METHODS to best suit your needs
