Murfreesboro is officially part of the Nashville, Tennessee metro area. However it is far enough away (35 miles) to maintain a separate identity from its larger neighbor to the north-west. Mufreesboro is home to Middle Tennessee State University which is the largest undergraduate university in the state with an undergraduate population of around 22,000. Some of Mufreesboro major employers include Rutherford County (government), Middle Tenneseee State University, State Farm Operations Center and the General Mills/Pillsbury Company. Many businesses require the use of a high quality Murfreesboro 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.
