What a virtual receptionist is
YouMail’s virtual receptionist feature page notes that you can automatically greet callers with a custom “away” text or email message whenever you’re unable to answer the phone. Your automated message can include a picture, logo, link to your website or a button to book an appointment.
Their virtual receptionist software also collects contact info for every caller, so you know exactly who called and how to reach them easily. Callers can even press a single key to be routed to another team member or a different number for you. Plus, YouMail stops robocalls at the source, blocking telemarketers, debt collectors and scammers forever.
The benefits of having a virtual receptionist
YouMail asserts that no matter how productive you are, you can’t answer every call. With their virtual receptionist app, you can rest assured that any missed caller receives a premium experience. YouMail allows you to greet specific callers by name and with a personalized greeting. Their automated virtual receptionist then offers help, automatically transferring urgent calls and ensuring your business moves forward. Plus, their plans start at $17.99/month, saving you hundreds of dollars a month compared to hiring an actual receptionist.
