Virtual Receptionist FAQs

What is a Virtual Receptionist?

A virtual receptionist receives inbound calls, answers caller questions, provides administrative support, and forwards conversations onto the right department. These professionals wear a lot of hats; from Tier 1 tech support to HIPAA-compliant appointment scheduling, virtual receptionists make a positive first impression with every ring of the telephone.

What Does a Virtual Receptionist Do?

How Much Does a Virtual Receptionist Cost?

When you decide to partner with MAP Communications, you’ll be privy to all the benefits of a 24/7 virtual receptionist. Pricing depends greatly upon how much you plan to use our services. You only pay for the time we actively spend on the phone chatting with customers.
