I’m glad I heard about Abby Connect. I used to have another live answering company but it wasn’t as personal at all. It was an answering service. Abby offers a lot more personal to a business and the other companies have not caught on to that. Abby has been great and seamless. Their people are excellent and the message is delivered as well as summation emails. They drop who needs to be dropped, take the calls and who they need to call. They are manning the phones and adding a personal touch. They are the first line of defense. If you call in to us, you are dealing with a human. So, it's delivering our product.
Abby has made all the difference with the simplicity of a human answering the phone, taking the message and someone like myself responding to the call. The last three weeks had been tough because I was down and ill. So, I had them just take messages and send them to me. There were a lot of calls but I responded to what I needed to. Abby Connect is like my assistant.
Thank you so much for your kind words about our phone answering service! I deeply appreciate hearing how personal we are, that is definitely a high priority for us. I am also so happy to hear that the messages we sent you while you were ill were helpful (and we hope you’re feeling much better now!).
Your receptionist team is always dedicated to making sure your callers and their messages get to the right person.
We are glad that your friendly receptionist team gives you the peace of mind you need to effectively "take care of business"! Thank you again for switching your answering service over to us!
About two years previous, I used another company. And Abby Connect is by far the most superior. I'm very pleased with their upbeat personality and the client interaction. We use the phone service the most. They take our messages, forward phone calls to the different agents in the office and follow-up to make sure that the phone call was transitioned to an agent. From the overall atmosphere of the agents and the different customers and clients that have utilized us over the last three months, working with Abby Connect has gone well for us. Everything that they have indicated, they have delivered. I look forward to growing our business and continuing to use Abby. Moreover, I have recommended them to one of our colleagues. I'm very pleased with the service thus far and my experience with them has been wonderful.
Michael – this is so fabulous to hear! There a number of companies out there that provide a similar service as ours but the personality and client interaction is something which typically sets us apart. To hear that we are superior in what we strive to do best is the most honorable compliment to receive. We understand that there are a lot of moving pieces within your real estate firm and we want to provide you and your staff the same comprehensive support as you do for your clients. We love answering your calls and saying our quick hellos when we transfer your clients over, that is always the fun part! We too look forward to your growth and it would truly be a privilege to grow with you. Your recommendation of our service to others is the highest form of praise and we sincerely appreciate it. The feeling is mutual when you say the “experience has been wonderful”. Your Receptionist, Racquel
Abby Connect have good rates and in turns out they have excellent service as well. We don’t have to worry about missing calls. They always send us an email whether the call goes through or not. And also, it’s very helpful because they ask the caller certain questions before they put them through. We provided Abby Connect with a script. I give two thumbs up for their customer service and for Marianne, who is our account representative. So absolutely use Abby Connect if you’re thinking about using an answering service or a virtual office service.
Hello John, Thank you for such a fantastic review of our virtual receptionist service. We enjoy ensuring that you do not miss a single call and providing the greatest amount of customer service with each call we answer. Your account manager, Marianne, is absolutely incredible and you are in great hands with her. Thank you again for recommending people to Abby Connect - its clients like you that make us strive to be even better! Your Receptionist Team Lead, Elaine M.
Abby Connect's pricing was what got us in the door and demoed the system. We use the receptionist services the most. Abby Connect is fantastic, and their customer service is out of this world. They are so thorough and just screen calls very well. We couldn’t be happier. I definitely recommend them
Hello Regina, Thank you for recognizing the effort we continuously put towards our clients. We are committed to efficiently taking accurate messages, allowing you to release the worry of missing anything important. Abby is overjoyed to be your cost-effective option. Thank you again for the great review! Your Receptionist, Erika
We did some research online to see which answering service was out there, what they had to offer, and what would fit our needs the best. We decided to get Aby Connect as our full time answering service and they are great. During the free two-week trial period, they were very responsive and we had great feedback with some of our clients or vendors that have called. They're very prompt and very polite. They're there all the time answering the phone and with no issues. It helped a lot that we haven't had any missed phone calls or lost in the process of trying to reconnect phone calls to people. We talked to their reps during the initial set up with the program and since then, we've made two phone calls to them. Then the rest of our communications are done by email and they're quick to respond through any changes or questions that we've had. We would recommend them.
Hello Debbie, Thank you for giving our live receptionist service a shot! It's fabulous to hear that after your research you decided we best fit your needs. We understand the value of every phone call and being responsive, prompt, and polite to all of your callers. We are glad to hear the communication with your account manager, Marianne, has been smooth; she is amazing at what she does. We look forward to continuing to serve your company and providing exceptional customer service. Your Receptionist Team Lead, Hannah N.
I was googling different kinds of similar services and Abby Connect had the services that I needed at the price point that was acceptable for me. Also, during their trial period, I was very pleased with the service that they provided. So I went ahead with them and now I have their phone answering service, the virtual receptionist. Having them helped me greatly with being able to provide a higher level of customer service and everybody at Abby Connect has been wonderful. I’ve interacted with several people and they’ve all been great. It’s a worthwhile service that people should look into.
Hello Dominique, Thank you so much for your kind review! Your recognition inspires us to continue to do what we do best by adding value and assisting in enhancing your level of customer service. We are pleased that our free trial period impressed you and that you continued with our services. Our virtual receptionists love speaking with your callers and team members. We look forward to a continued partnership with your company! Your Abby Receptionist, Cori
We tried a few live answering services and Abby Connect has a better service at a more increased price point. We mostly use their answering service and we have reliable phone service now. The interactions with their team have all been good. Their demeanor is nice. Abby Connect is a good company. It's been a good experience.

I went through a trial period with a different live answering company and I wasn't happy with them, so I went with Abby Connect. I love the service. It helped free up a lot of my time, and they've been doing a good job. Whenever any of my client calls, they get a friendly person or friendly voice. I'm surprised on how well Abby Connect has been able to identify new business and how well they take down the caller information and provide that to me on the email. So, I really appreciate that. I've recommended Abby Connect and told people that they would help streamline their business. They could focus on what they do and let Abby Connect handle the calls.
Hello Clyde, I am so happy to be one of your receptionists taking your calls. We look forward to continuing to help streamline your law firm's business. Thank you for switching your live receptionist service over to us! Your Abby Receptionist, Holli
I looked up the best and highest rated answering services available anywhere and I found Abby Connect. I also read great reviews about them and decided that, after my free trial, I wouldn’t go with anybody else. They always have a great attitude no matter what time of day and having them helps me stay organized with the forms that they fill out for me. I have their live reception answering service and they take information down from my customers so that when I get back, I'm able to assist them better. Partnering with Abby Connect makes you seem much larger than the company you really are. If you have the money, it’s important to get their service. Also, you’re losing money by not doing it.
Hello Carlos, I want to personally thank you for this great review and for having picked Abby Connect as your dedicated team of virtual receptionists. We are so thankful that after researching the best and highest-rated answering services and reading our great reviews you decided to give us a shot. Our receptionists are delighted to hear that our great attitude and the caller information we take down helps you stay more organized and assists your clients better. Thank you again for your kind words, we truly appreciate them. Your Abby receptionist, Jacqueline
I like Abby Connect's 24/7 service and how responsive they were when I was seeking out a live answering company. Their reps were very helpful in helping me understand how to work with them. Currently they're doing all of our call screening and call routing. Partnering with them has significantly reduced the amount of junk phone calls coming into my office. It has improved the efficiency of the staff that had to answer the phone. They give my company a very professional image with regard to the phones being answered as they are very consistent.
Your Receptionist Team Lead, Mariah
Abby Connect was listed positively and there are really positive reviews from others so I went ahead and tried their free trial. That was incredibly helpful because it proved the fact that they were incredibly useful towards our business. Surprisingly, it was a phenomenal experience from the get-go. Before, we had an automated recording saying that most of the answers can be found online and that customer can check out our FAQs. If they really needed something to get answered, they could leave a message and expect a call back within about five hours. But that wasn’t a really good experience for a guest.
Having Abby Connect definitely impacted the business in a positive way. It’s nice to get a person on the line. In fact, we're a unique customer for Abby Connect in the sense that everyone else uses them mostly for answering service or while you’re out of the office. But we are actually having them perform services that are a bit more advanced in the sense that they’re looking at some of our FAQs. They’re able to look into our system and see if you have a reservation. Then if it’s a more complex thing, they try to escalate it to one of us depending on where the problem is. When they forward the call to us, at least then we would know that it may be an urgent thing or a callback. If it’s not urgent, Abby Connect would take a message and say that we would call the guest back.
We’ve figured out a workflow too. We went back and forth with regards to figuring out how to better be able to answer some of the questions, tweaking the flow of when to reach out and telling someone when and when not to escalate something and who it should be escalated to. Their portal is really easy to use and in addition to the calls getting answered, we also get a notice for every call. There’s a call log that comes in to all of us so we have a distribution list, like a little summary of the calls that came in, if they were able to capture the name of the person, the number and what the call was regarding. It helps us get some feedback of what people are calling about and where we can maybe add information to the website to better the user experience.
I know that Abby Connect is more of a call answering service but I wish they can go one step deeper and allow our customers to place orders over the phone. That’s how our customers wanted to call in. So we have to basically say that for security reasons, and this is also on Abby Connect’s part, they have to go online and place their order there. But it also helps because a lot of our legal stuff is through signature by virtual documents. So we make sure that they have a working connection already, in order to be able to do that, because it won’t work over the phone. Other than that, the people at Abby Connect are super. They’re always willing and able to help. They’re also willing to go above and beyond, and that was what we wanted.
Hi Aleks, Thank you for switching over your live receptionist service to us! We are happy to hear you are pleased with our services from the get-go. Our receptionists pride themselves on offering a more personal feel as opposed to an automated recording. We are ecstatic to hear we’ve positively impacted your business. Abby Connect values the relationships with our clients and we encourage you to continue adjusting the call procedures and workflow best suited for your needs with your account manager. If you ever have suggestions on how to improve our service or new ideas for features, we'd love to hear them. Reach out to your account manager anytime to share your feedback. We look forward to assisting you in any future needs. Your receptionist, Valeria
Abby Connect is much better than the previous live answering service I was using. When I set up the account, the Abby Connect team was very good. Now, I never miss calls. If I don’t pick up, they answer my phones and send me a text and email me the message. I also never deal with voicemail. Using Abby Connect has made my phone much better. I probably pick up additional consultations because of it.
Thank you so much for your review, Andrew! Here at Abby Connect, we love to hear how we never miss your calls and help you get additional business. We do our very best to make your business phone answering better and your set-up easy. Thank you for switching your live receptionist service to Abby Connect. Best of luck with your continued growth and thank you again for being an amazing client! Your Receptionist, Kaitlyn
I liked Abby Connect after reading some online reviews about them. I've been using their service for two months now and I like them compared to my previous company. They answer calls for me and transfer them over. It's a top notch service. Everything is working well.
Carlos, Thank you so much for switching your phone answering service to us! It’s fabulous to hear you like our reviews and our service. Your team is equally amazing with the way you care for your clients and assist their needs in a timely manner. We appreciate you allowing us the opportunity to assist your callers and your staff. Sincerely, Elaine M.
I'm using the phone service of Abby Connect and they do a good job. If something's wrong, they handle it quickly. They are also very friendly and my clients like them. So as long as that keeps going the way it is, I'll be with them for a long time.
Hi Kristy, Our account managers work hard to expedite solutions to problems. We absolutely love working with your clients and bringing a smile to their face. We look forward to continuing working with you! Your Receptionist, Victoria
I was doing Internet searches on answering services and I decided to try Abby Connect because of their price point and the customer reviews. They were very helpful in getting us set up. We were set up in three days after signing up for their service, so that was very simple and straightforward. We also had a few items that needed to be accommodated that they were happy to work with. It's been trouble-free working as we had hoped. I also like the fact that we have a real person answering customer calls. It's very important. Since partnering with them, we're much more efficient and responsive to customer calls, and it also filters out unnecessary sales and marketing calls. I'd be happy to recommend them to others.
Hi Pete, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. I'm so glad that our services fit within your needs and that we were able to get you up and running quickly and customize your account. We're so glad that you have seen the immediate impact of having all your calls answered live by someone who can filter through them for your team. Please let us know if there's anything we can do to further improve your experience.
Your receptionist Team Lead, Elaine M.
I've been with Abby Connect since the beginning of August and my experience with them is great. I'm a Vegas company and they are here locally. Partnering with Abby Connect gives an ease of stress not having to sit there and take unwanted calls. We're on the medical side and they keep only with us the girls that are trained to take those calls. I like the voicemail translation too. I don't have to listen to voicemail and that's pretty nice. They're awesome and we'll be with them for a long time.
Hello Danielle! We appreciate your feedback and we are extremely happy that you enjoy our phone answering services. We especially love knowing that we help ease your stress. We thoroughly enjoy working with other locally-owned businesses in Las Vegas. Here at Abby Connect we believe training is key to having our service work best for everyone and we match you with the best receptionist team for your business. We look forward to building our relationship and being able to work together for a long time! - Jazmin
We've been with Abby Connect for five months now and we use their answering service. They are super polite and great to talk to. We have a lot of our clients that prefer calling them than calling us directly. I know they're working on a couple of different features such as picking up a call recording after a call has been put on hold or transferred and I'm looking forward to it. Although they do a great job of forwarding information after they receive the call, getting a voice of the recording with an answering machine for instance, would pretty much take it to the next level and that would make it easier for us to get the contact of the call. They are also expensive compared to other services, but partnering with them gave us a bigger company presence that when people call in, they hear a professional and friendly voice.
Hello Walter, It’s great to hear that your clients love to speak with us. With Abby Connect, your callers will always encounter a friendly and professional voice. Our company is committed to improving our clients’ end-to-end experience and we will continue to work on adding new features and services to better your experience. We also encourage you to reach out to your account manager, who can discuss new feature plans and cost saving ideas. Thank you for the great review and we look forward to assisting you in any future needs. Your Receptionist, Jeannette
I like that the pricing information of Abby Connect is available online without having to search around too much. When I set up the consultation, I was impressed with Elena whom I spoke with. I enjoyed talking to her and thought that they would represent my business well. The team at Abby answers all of my incoming calls and if I'm not available to speak with whoever's calling, they'll take the message and email that to me. That's my favorite feature so far. Every time they transfer somebody to me, I speak with someone from Abby. And every single person that I've worked with has been cheerful and happy to be doing this for their job. They have also been quick to answer any emails if I have questions for them. I definitely have seen an increase in booking because my phones are actually getting answered. So, I've been very happy with them.
Hello Kara, We are so happy that your business has had more bookings while using Abby Connect’s answering services! We pride ourselves in providing straightforward pricing and creating a seamless onboarding process for our clients. Our receptionists enjoy being able to connect with callers while ensuring that our clients receive timely, accurate information. Your account manager, Elena, is incredible and we know she’ll always take great care of your account. We are so happy that you are apart of the Abby family and look forward to a continued relationship. Your Receptionist, Cori
When I was getting ready to fire my old service, I did some research on the internet and Abby Connect kept popping up in my search results. Abby has been very reliable and they follow my instructions. They do what they say they can do and I pay them a premium for 24/7 coverage while the other company overpromised and under-delivered. They presented themselves as bigger than what they were but when I called, it got really bad one weekend and they told me they don’t have the ability to do the work. I paid them a premium for the same thing. It was the third hiccup. It was a $5,000 piece of business that was getting ready to walk away and I happened to be there to see my phone. I called, I sealed with the deal and the business came in the door. But I was really fusilladed. What if I had not been there to see that? That’s $5,000 that just walked away and went to one of my competitors. Abby has not had that issue.
Abby's principal job is to answer my phone promptly, pleasantly and get me information so that I could get back to the people. They do it 24/7/355 which is what I need. In exchange, I pay them a hefty fee but I don’t burden the receptionist with doing client intake or asking a thousand questions because a large percentage of people who call my office hour is really crazy and stupid so, it is better for me to sift through that. I try to be a low maintenance client and they are fairly responsive. So, once they set up, the process was over. I had a few clarifying questions but I try not to bother them and I don’t want them to bother me. I just pay them for what they do. Abby is something that distinguishes me from my competitors. I want the people to like me and I got two compliments on my receptionist since I have been with Abby. I highly recommend them.
Hello Damon, We always make sure your calls are answered 24/7 so that you never lose your clients to your competitors. We are happy to hear that we help distinguish your business from others and that your clients enjoy working with us. We're sorry to hear that your previous answering service lost you business. We hope that never happens for you again. Thank you for switching your virtual reception service over to Abby Connect! Your Receptionist, Harley
We are a small firm and we needed a reception service. I did a ton of research and I knew a lot of lawyers had been using a service called Ruby Reception, so I looked into them quite a bit. I almost went with Ruby but I looked online and read a lot about Abby Connect and decided to give them a try first. One of the things that I kept reading about Abby was that they had the opportunity to do longer hours of reception service and 24-hour rollover service if we needed it. We do personal injury as specifically geared towards law enforcement first responders and since they work 24/7, that is something we need. We only have two lawyers and a couple of employees here, so there is no way we could be on-call 24/7. But, if our clients needed to reach somebody, we needed someone that could take the call and at least send us a voicemail or an email.
Dealing with the Abby Connect team was pretty simple and the set-up took me about 30 minutes on the phone with them. They walked me through everything and wanted to know a little bit more about how they could explain different questions that are often asked. For example, how to get to our office, fax number and phone number, so they could answer questions on our behalf and not have to reach out to us. Then they would always call and introduce themselves. They would say, “Hi, Michelle. This is so and so with Abby. I’ve got so and so on the line and he wants XYZ,” so that I don’t have to take the call if I don’t like to. I can say, “Will you please take a message?” or “Sure, put them through” or “Can you send them to x person instead?”
They are always really great to talk to and it is lonely when I'm working in an office by myself, so sometimes, I will get a call from them and they brighten my day. It feels like I’m working with someone when I’m all alone. We love that they are so perky and they answer the phone right away and track us down on our cell and none of our clients know that they don’t work for us. We had just about five different people that always answer the phone, so everybody thinks that the receptionist works in our office. It doesn’t sound like the typical reception service that I’ve used in the past. Abby is super cost-effective and I’ve recommended them highly. In fact, one of our lawyers has a solo practice and he’s about to sign-up separately. I’ve come through a lot of different reception services in my time as a firm administrator with different law firms and Abby Connect is, by far, the best I’ve ever run across. I’m really happy with them.
Michelle, your kind words truly brightened our day. Thank you for giving us a shot and allowing us to earn your trust one call at a time. It’s fabulous to hear that the onboarding process went smoothly, and that we were able to fill in the gap for your 24/7 answering need. We know the value of every phone call and how crucial this service is to our clients. I also want to mention, that the team loves every opportunity they have to connect a call to you. We are a family-owned business, so our receptionists and clients also feel like our extended family. Your referrals have been the best form of “thank you” and we truly appreciate your vote of confidence in us. We look forward to building our relationship and being able to further assist in any future needs.Your Abby Operations Director,
My chief operating officer was searching around for a better telephone answering service and she found Abby Connect. I like their emails, that they tell me who called, what happened and was it a hung up or nobody was there. Those to me are critical stuff because we need to know that information. And the calls coming in to me are short, sweet and then we're done. Also, we're a little more efficient right now. We're happy with Abby Connect.
Hello Don, We are delighted to hear that your company can operate in a more efficient manner since retaining Abby’s services. At Abby Connect, we understand that every call we take and the information we gather is important to the growth of our client’s business. Thank you again for switching your phone answering service to us! Your Receptionist, Cori
I use Abby Connect to answer phones and schedule appointments. Their people I've spoken with were oddly friendly. One client commented on how they sounded like they had definitely had their caffeine for the day because they seemed very happy and it’s very nice. Now, I spend less time answering the phone and spend more time working. I’ve used a few live answering companies before and Abby Connect is better. I would definitely recommend them.
Adam, We are so glad to hear that allowing us to answer your phones has helped you work more efficiently. I'm so glad we have exceeded your expectations. Thank you for the wonderful review and switching your phone answering service over to us! Your Receptionist, Kaitlyn
The live answering company that I used before was all voice automated. It was a bit different. So, I searched for Abby Connect and I got their receptionist service. Partnering with Abby Connect has helped. I now have a real live voice to answer the phone. Years before, there were answering services and they would take messages, and one knew they were an answering service. But Abby Connect is a bit better and not just like an answering service. I’ve only had Abby Connect's service for nearly three months and my interactions with their people have been so good so far.
Hi Dave! We know that in quality customer care nothing replaces a caring voice dedicated to helping callers. We add a personal touch to each call which a voice automated service (or any other service for that matter) just can't provide! I'm so happy that all your interactions with our team have been positive. Thank you so much for your review! Always your receptionist, Katherine
Abby Connect helps us focus on customer relations. They ensure that our phones are answered and it helps us with the in-office efficiency. They screen calls, answers them and sometimes, they also do the messaging or after hours in Oakland calls. I have had some of their people come directly to me and they had been wonderful, and even from their relations with the others who I work with.
Dear Glenn, We make it a priority to provide the most friendly and efficient customer care by quickly answering and screening your calls, and passing along accurate messages. Thank you for the wonderful review and we are thrilled to be answering for your company. Your Receptionist, Jessica
The people at Abby Connect are very courteous and professional. We use them for live answering and they do a very good job. They're the first line of defense when someone phones. We have expanded their service to another company that we control and they’re answering the phones for them too. It's a testament to what our relationship is.
Hello Vincent, Being courteous and professional is the epitome of a great receptionist, so it is wonderful you hear that in our calls. It's a priority for us to have friendly voices receive those initial calls in order to make a great first impression for your callers. We're so glad that we've been able to assist in your other business endeavors as well. Thank you for the amazing review! Your Receptionist, Hannah N.
I got Abby Connect when I went crazy trying to answer the phone all the time. They answer the phone, press to screen and pause for the most part, too. Abby Connect has given me more free time to do what I needed to do instead of trying to filter through all the phone calls all day. Also, their people are very professional and friendly.
Darryll, We are so glad that we have been able to free up your time and help you filter through your incoming calls! I love getting to speak with your customers and giving them professional and friendly customer care on every call. Thank you for this great review! Your Abby Receptionist, Holli
I did a little bit of research and then I had a Podcast which Abby Connect was sponsoring. I used somebody else before but that company and Abby Connect are worlds apart. I use Abby Connect's answering service and then the calendaring for consultations. Abby Connect saved me a lot of time and now I’m more efficient. I can focus on my work knowing that my leads are captured. Also, the interactions with their team are always amazing. Everybody is always smiling on the other line, I can hear it.
Your receptionist, Valeria
I was looking around online for phone systems and came across Abby Connect. And I decided to go with them partially for the price and partially for the service. I use the call screening feature and it has been very good. It's been easier for a hand-off standpoint when somebody calls. And when it gets handed off, it comes off more professional. Everybody at Abby Connect has been great and they’ve done a good job so far. I'm very happy with the service and hopefully, they’ll keep doing what they’ve been doing. I would tell my friends that they should consider Abby Connect if they’re in a similar position.
Thank you so much for such a great review! We are so glad you found us through your online research. It's always a pleasure to screening your calls and answering your clients’ calls with a professional tone and friendly voice. Thank you again for choosing Abby Connect -- we are very happy to be your virtual receptionists!
Your Receptionist, Angie M.
I'm very happy with Abby Connect. Before I got them, I just referred people to my phones which was why I needed help. Their energy on the phone is dynamic and I couldn't replicate it. And that's exactly the energy that I need and I want to represent my business. I haven't missed a call on their part ever since.
Andrew, Thank you so much for the outstanding review. Our Abby Connect receptionists pride themselves on bringing friendly and positive energy to every call. First impressions are very valuable! We are thrilled to answer all your calls, so that your callers are addressed right away and given the BEST customer service. Thanks again! Your friendly receptionist, Monica
When I wanted to get an answering service, I remembered when I called ** once and I liked the way it was. I was told that they used Abby Connect. I am an office manager and I have a small office. It’s very important for us to have our phone answered by a live person whenever somebody’s out or we’re all out on an appointment. If we have a meeting out of the office, we would forward it to Abby Connect and then they would answer it. If there’s a client that needs us, they would call me right away. I like that a lot.
The team at Abby Connect is always very pleasant when they call me like they might have a caller on hold. I’ve heard feedback that they are pleasant to my clients too. My clients are happy. They always get a real person to answer the phone during business hours. It has impacted our business pretty well. Abby Connect is awesome and it’s not that expensive. It’s well worth it and I love them.
Susan, We are thrilled that you got to first experience Abby Connect as a caller and then decided to try us out for your business. Whenever you or someone in the office is out of the office, we are always here and ready to take every call. Impacting your business in such a positive way with a pleasant and friendly virtual receptionist is what Abby is all about. We love to hear that you find our service valuable. Thank you so much for the wonderful review! Your Receptionist, Brittany
I was looking for facts, cost and services and contacted Abby Connect. It turned out to be a pleasant experience. We keep our phone calls forwarded to them all the time and if it's somebody that they feel like we would want to talk to, like customers and suppliers, we have them put through. It helps us to screen out telemarketers and stuff like that, that we get all the time. Abby connect has been beneficial to our company. It takes a little pressure off of us to not to have somebody by the phone all the time and the reassurance that a live human is gonna talk to them and not a machine.
But when they put the callers on hold I'm not sure exactly what they tell them. But then, they have to turn around and make a phone call to us, tell us kinda what the call is regarding. And then, we tell them either to take a message or just send it through so a little bit of time passes. I had one fellow that was kinda frustrated about it. He got the impression that the agent was taking other phone calls in the time that he was on hold. In fact, she had called me to ask me if I wanted to talk to the guy or not. But that was the only time we've had anybody really think it was something less than seamless. And there's also a delay in the phone call so any time that they send a call through to my cell phone, there's a lag in the conversation. There's something systemic there that's a problem. So overall it's been somewhat liberating to have them working for us but then there's a couple of challenges that exist also.
Your Account Manager,
I would recommend Abby Connect. They answer calls as if they do work for our law firm, and they give excellent service. Abby was a referral from one of the girls who work here and because they offered a promotion, we went with them. We use their live answering service and they answer phone calls when I’m off or on vacation. Also, when I have errands to do, I just transfer the calls to our phone, so they answer and it helps us get all the calls. And then when it’s an emergency, they call my cellphone. I get feedback from my clients and they like whoever answers the phone. They think that they’re here at the office. And they said they were very friendly and professional.

Abby Connect questions and answers
- What problem is Abby Connect trying to solve?
- Small companies cannot afford the cash and time investment to hire, train, manage and motivate receptionists to answer the phone calls. On the flip side they need their phone lines answered live by a professional receptionist so their calls do not go to voicemail or unanswered. Abby Connect provides a team of live receptionists at a fraction of the cost of hiring, training, managing and motivating an in-house receptionist.
- What sets Abby Connect apart from the competition?
- Abby Connect is focused on the quality of the customer service and wowing the client. We only assign five receptionists per account and only higher the best and brightest. Traditional answering services pay minimum wage, fail at motivating their receptionists and assign 50+ operators to each account. Abby achieves a level of personalization that is just not possible when you assign 50+ operators to an account. Some of our competitors only answer during the day Monday – Friday. We provide live receptionist services during the day, night and on weekends. Some of our competitors do not provide Spanish speaking receptionists whereas we do.
- What needs do your services fulfill, and how do you fulfill those needs better than your competition?
- Our company answers our clients’ phone lines like a receptionist of their company and focuses on wowing the caller. Our focus on our company culture and motivating the receptionists makes us better than our competition.
- How does Abby Connect measure success?
- We measure success based on the number of compliments our clients get from their callers about their receptionists.
- What’s the most common misconception consumers have about your industry?
- The biggest misconception consumers have about our industry is that all answering service/virtual receptionist companies can be lumped into one category. The truth is there are three categories in our industry that have very distinctive differences. The 1st category is a traditional answering service that is 24/7, has a large call center with 50+ operators and is the lowest cost solution. These companies were built around the medical field’s need for Doctors to get calls after hours and to be paged when there is an emergency. Their entire business model is built around quantity and low cost. The 2nd category is a virtual office/executive suite company that handles a company’s mail, provides meeting room and office space and answer their phone lines. Their core focus is in the space services they provide and phones are just a part of what they do. The 3rd category, which Abby Connect falls into, is a premium virtual receptionist company that has their core focus on answering phone calls for small companies and becoming the receptionist of the company they are answering for. In this category we are focused on really wowing the caller and surpassing any level of customer service that our client could provide on their own.
- How has your industry changed in the last 5 to 10 years?
- In the past 5-10 years we have started to see the large call centers that were originally built to only take messages for Doctors try to market themselves as virtual receptionist companies that are focused on small businesses. These call centers still have the culture of cutting cost and not focusing on quality of service. The only thing that has changed is their marketing.
- What is something you wish every consumer knew about Abby Connect?
- I wish every consumer could meet our receptionists in person. We have such an amazing group of receptionists and anyone would be proud to have an Abby Connect receptionist answer their calls.
- Has your business received any awards or recognition your customers would like to know about?
- We constantly receive incredible feedback from our customers. We have an extremely high retention rate.
- How has Abby Connect grown or evolved?
- Our company began as an executive suite company. We answered the phones for our office tenants and soon realized how well we were at providing exceptional customer service. This realization led us to start TelAssistant. TelAssistant was marketed as a virtual receptionist service that answers your phone line plus handle your companies scheduling. Over a 3 year period we found out that trying to learn a company’s scheduling platform and schedule a patient or caller was too time consuming and not cost effective for our client. We also found there were mistakes made and it was extremely difficult to become experts at each individual scheduler. We did not want to do anything we were not experts at which led us to re-brand as Abby Connect. Abby Connect’s only mission is to wow the callers for our clients and provide the best customer service experience over the phone as possible.
