1. How Does a Government Call Center Work?

A call center for local, state, and federal government agencies, allows them save time and money while providing quality customer service. Our experienced live virtual receptionists can support any government agency and reduce their workload by answering calls when your staff can’t.

2. Why Should Government Agencies Consider Outsourced Telephone Answering?

Government agencies typically have limited resources and very tight budgets. Finding ways to improve service without having to hire more staff is always a challenge. With an answering service for government agencies, you can still have a solid front-line team that can answer and dispatch calls for a fraction of the cost it would be to hire additional workers.

3. What Are Government Agencies Using a Telephone Answering Service For?

From answering basic questions, taking messages, or dispatching emergencies, government agencies outsource their telephone answering to devote more of their time to essential tasks and allocate professionals like Direct Line to answer the same questions and provide information to their callers.

In addition, Direct Line offers other call answering services such as 311 answering, employee attendance lines, ethics and fraud reporting, and disaster response dispatch. These are just some of the commonly requested call center services that government agencies need assistance with.

4. Is a Government Answering Service Available 24/7?

Yes, Direct Line is open 24/7/365. So you will always have telephone coverage when you or your staff is away from the office. There are no extra fees for holidays or weekends.
