Missoula, in Montana, is also known as “The Hub of Five Valleys.” Its local economy was supported by the lumber industry until that slowly faded in the 1990’s. Then the University of Montana and two hospitals became the city’s largest employer. Missoula is made up of about 70,000 people and ranked # 285 in gross metropolitan product in the year 2009 with an output of over 4 billion dollars. In one of Montana’s largest cities, many businesses require the use of a high quality Missoula outsourced call center and answering service. A live 24 hour telephone answering service is mission-critical for a small business that wants to continue to generate revenue after hours or during the day by way of a virtual receptionist. Having an emergency call center or answering service in the medical profession goes without saying, but having a local answering service as a small business owner is just smart business.
