Improve Customer Service

By partnering with Direct Line, you are now open for business 24/7/365, even when you’re not there.   Our professionally certified Call Agents answer your calls quickly and professionally which leads to happy clients, and happy clients are the root of where referrals grow.

Increase Lead Generation

Fact:  82% of callers hang up when they get voicemail.  Many businesses using voicemail underestimate how many lead opportunities they get but since callers don’t usually leave a message, they just move on to the next number on the Google listing. You will be surprised how many more calls—and leads—you receive when you eliminate voicemail and have Direct Line answer your calls with one of our Live Virtual Receptionists.  We know that your business needs a way to differentiate itself from the competition. Gain the professional edge that you need by teaming up with Direct Line and let us be an extension of your office 24/7/365.

Custom Delivery Options

We provide a variety of custom message delivery options so that your messages are delivered precisely as you expect them; on time, every time and accurate.  Where many Answering Services fail is in the lack of immediate and efficient delivery of urgent messages to an on-call staff member. Not at Direct Line! Not only do we expedite calls quickly and accurately, we are also highly experienced in differentiating emergencies from non-emergencies. This is of critical benefit to you since it spares your on-call staff from issues that can be handled by your office during regular business hours.
