Silver State Communications

You and your answering service staff have been amazing. Each call is answered professionally within a VERY short time, they are hardly ever on hold, and if they are, it has been under 30 seconds, each communication specialist answers in a friendly voice that radiates over the phone lines, and what I love the most is each answering service agent gives their name when branding the answer phrase. It’s personal, professional, and an excellent way to do business. Thank you for everything!

Huffmaster Companies

Just wanted to send you a little note to say thank you to you and your team for doing such a great job. Our phone lines went down last night and just recently came back up and your answering service team took all our calls. It is such a comfort to know that our customers and employees will be taken care of after hours and when our lines are down. We greatly appreciate your answering service.

I wanted to write you this letter to let you know how happy I am with your answering service company. I began working with your company the first of this year. I had been shopping for an answering service that would work with me on a data transmission. Your staff won my confidence easily when compared to the competition. They had a comprehensive knowledge of the field combined with a sincere desire to help your customers succeed that is not easily found in business. They also had a few welcomed suggestions with regard to my advertising and merchant account search.

If I come across anyone that could benefit, Rochester Telemessaging will get an enthusiastic endorsement from this customer.

Dear Herb & Jan,
You are indeed fortunate to have as dedicated a professional as Sandy. She worked with me at many different times as well as being available after hours to customize your answering service to meet the needs of my customers. She is always ready to cheerfully make adjustments to my account and settle any problems that occur promptly. This is what I call “knock your socks off” customer service, and that is what Sandy is helping me to provide to my customers, being on the front line for Service Engineers always gives them a lasting first impression.

Dear Angels at Rochester Telemessaging,

It was my understanding that building power failed January 1 due to the winter storm effect. Thank you for providing us with the capability of triaging the more than 450 calls that came to InfuSystem during that crisis. Without your assistance it would not have been possible to service our customers to the extent that we did. For the patient’s calling the clinical support hot-line, the transition of service was seamless. InfuSystem’s mission stated goal is to be the best in our field and always make service our highest priority. Thank you for assisting us in facilitating our mission under the worst and best of circumstances.

Just wanted to drop the RTC Team a quick note of thanks and appreciation for all you do for McCormick Electrical and me. Your team has made my life much simpler and with much less stress on nights, weekends and when we are short staffed. I can relax and know my clients are being answered and attended to. We receive compliments on there always being someone to answer the phones at all times and that was one of the main reasons I started McCormick Electric to begin with…I personally hate answering machines and voicemail systems and so do people that are experiencing a problem and need help.
