In-House IT Department

Technology is a large part of Call Insights and our IT professionals designed the system from the ground up. Many answering service companies outsource their IT needs to a 3rd party reducing the efficacy and the speed at which problems get solved and updates get installed. This is just another feature that demonstrates our commitment to you.

Reliability

You don’t last 11 years in this industry without being reliable. Call Insights takes great pride in our ability to succeed where other companies fail. Many problems beyond our control can interrupt our ability to help you. For instance, power outages and phone lines being cut. Having back-up systems in place is essential to continuing service during these times. We have multiple solutions.
 • 24/7/365 On-call staff can handle any problems
 • Back up generators to power the data center in the event of power outages
 • 24/7/365 emergency hotline

Four Secrets About Answering Services

#1 Most of the technology used in the telephone answering service industry is out-dated and woefully inadequate. Very little advancement has been made in off the shelf systems. Many services are running on decades-old technology.
Questions To Ask:
“Tell me about the platform supporting the business.”
“What is your budget for IT?”
“When’s the last time you upgraded your system?”
“How old is it?”


#2 Quality IT support is difficult to come by for answering service providers.
The best and brightest IT professionals are not interested in working on yesterday’s  technology. The answering service market is too small to justify building the modern applications that attract top IT talent.
Questions To Ask:
“Tell me about your tech support resources?”
“Is your tech support in-house or out-sourced?”
“What are the qualifications of the person(s) responsible for tech support?”


#3 Many services are running dangerously close to the limitations of their systems.
Once an automated service reaches 250 to 300 accounts in size, the probability is
high that another 40 or 50 accounts will significantly diminish the system’s
performance. There are no easy fixes. The next step up would require too much
investment for most small companies.
Questions To Ask:
“How many accounts do you currently service?”
“What are the specifications of your system?”
“How many accounts can your current system handle?”


#4 The term “Customer Service Department” can be a euphemism for one person with a cell phone. There is a major barrier to entry that prevents most answering services from achieving the critical mass to support the necessary resources to get the job done right.
Questions To Ask:
“What is the make up of your customer service departments?”
“Do you have 24/7 customer service?”
