How Turnkey Receptionists Can Elevate Your Customer Experience

Elevating Customer Experience: 
Turnkey Receptionists Raising the Bar 

Hi Dear Readers 

My insight for the week,  
The most frustrating words that can be uttered to a virtual receptionist is “but you are only a receptionist” Hell no buddy, I am not merely a receptionist, if you only knew….  

  • All those frustrating telemarketers that you hate dealing with, I deal with them.  
  • Those old ‘fuddy duddies’ that keep you on the phone for 15 minutes (that feels like 2 hours) to tell you that their toilet is leaking, I deal with them.  
  • The frustrated housewife that is starved for adult interaction about anything from breastfeeding to the colour of her newborns poop, I deal with them. 
  • The businessman stuck in traffic and late for an appointment that talks so fast and furious that has your head spinning at 120km per hour. I deal with them.  

and so many more scenarios that will make your head spin, no I am not merely a receptionist, I am a sounding board, a listener, an empath, a telephone directory, a dart board, a GPS for the lost, not to forget a speed typist. I have been hit on, shouted at, cried with, loved, and hated, and that all before lunch time.  
Would I want to do anything else, oh no, never, I love being all that for my clients, callers, customers, and friends, I am a natural born receptionist. I live to serve.  
Rant over, let me get my professional hat (one of many) on and tell you how Turnkey Receptionists can elevate the customer experience, we set a new standard for professionalism and service excellence.
