Recent clients to our outsourced reception services:

Estate Agents

Based in Liverpool the estate agents cover sales, lettings and property management in Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and sometimes further afield. They approached Connect as all calls were being directed to their receptionist; be they new enquiries, existing tenants, potential landlords or solicitors chasing for updates on a sale.

Connect provided a local 0151 smart number where callers are first greeted with a pre-recorded options menu:

“Please press…

  1. if you are an existing tenant
  2. if you are an existing landlord
  3. if you are a solicitor” etc

This way calls are now routed to a more relevant member of the estate agents. New client calls are routed directly to the Liverpool office, existing tenants and landlords are answered by Connect’s receptionists who take detailed notes to arrange a call back and property management calls are routed to a third-party factoring company that our estate agents outsource to.
