The third largest city in Vermont, Rutland is 65 miles north of Massachusetts and 20 miles east of New York. Downtown Rutland is listed as a historic district under the National Register of Historic Places. Downtown holds the Rutland Free Library, Paramount Theater and Merchants Row. Rutland’s Halloween Parade has taken place every year since 1960 and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2009. Known for its economy in retail sales, Rutland has slated a one acre lot of land called “The Pit” to build offices, educational and civic spaces. These new businesses require the use of a high quality Rutland 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.
