Contractor Answering Service

Reliable, Speedy, and Efficient Customer Service

Our team of professional call center agents is trained to provide your clients with technical support around the clock, 365 days a year to ensure an outstanding customer experience.

Never Miss a Call Again

Every call is a potential client or an important customer support issue, and fielding that call could potentially make or break a sale or create the long-term customer you need. Make sure to have the best professional answering services team in place, any time of day or night, to provide an outstanding customer service experience.

You never have to miss a service call again. With our talented team of call center agents, rest assured that your customer will always reach someone to help them with their inquiries. Our virtual receptionists are always on hand to get problems dealt with quickly and professionally before they cost you valuable time and money. They can handle all communications with your clients and provide professional virtual receptionist service for contractors in all fields of activity.

Common administrative tasks include:

  • Scheduling Appointments
  • Order Management
  • Call Screening, Transfering, and Data Capture
  • Accurate Message Delivery
  • Customer Service and Technical Support
  • Industry-Specific Approach
  • And more.

Call Filtering

We all know that not every customer is ideal. It's our job to screen out the ones who aren't interested in your services or aren't what you're looking for - so let us do that work! Use your time to focus on your services, mission-critical tasks, and talking to your ideal customers while our dedicated team focuses on increasing client satisfaction.

After Hours Customer Support

Potential customers often need help at odd hours, but keeping employees available twenty-four hours a day is not an ideal solution due to the higher costs associated with the investment of having an in-house team always around. Hire our virtual receptionist team to get the same service at a more cost-effective price. Turn your customers into satisfied clients who always find the answers to their questions.

Call Overflow Management

It's difficult to staff for spikes in volume of calls, especially during emergencies when your customers need the most help. During these times, our professional receptionists can pick up inbound calls and handle all your requests in a well-organized and reliable way - so that you can focus on management and administrating tasks and keep your customers happy.

1Does Unicom use remote business call center agents?
No. Unlike other services that offer virtual receptionists, all of our team members are centrally located in our Chicago call center. There are 4 reasons we do not use remote agents:
  • Our call center is HIPAA compliant, which requires Unicom to keep secure sensitive information.
  • A professional environment reduces interruptions and background noise.
  • It allows us to build a positive company culture and ultimately strong team unity.
  • Real-time management oversight during each shift.
2How are service fees calculated?
You pay ONLY for the time a Unicom Agents is speaking with your caller or completing a task in your account. There are no additional ‘ghost’ fees, taxes, surcharge, account maintenance.
3How long does it take to get started?
Implement time depends on the complexity of your processes. We have successfully onboarded companies in less than 24 hours. While other implementations require more time to ensure processes and technology are in place before we begin to receive calls.
4Is a contract required?
No. We do not bind clients to us with contracts. You are free to leave Unicom at any time with no penalties, fees, or encumbrances enacted. Since 1990, our growth and stability have been built on long term relationships with valued clients.
