How a Government Answering Service Works

Utilizing our government answering service is a simple process. It starts by establishing your account and determining how your calls should be handled. Every government office is different and the nature of your account will vary based on the type of calls we are handling on your behalf. If we are your daytime virtual receptionist, we may be tasked with taking messages or routing callers to the appropriate party within your office. If we are your after-hours emergency department, we may filter calls based on urgency and dispatch messages to on-call personnel.

Once your account is established, sending calls to Absent Answer is as easy as forwarding your phone lines. This is generally a straightforward process handled through your telephone provider. Your phone lines can also be configured to enable our call center to provide overflow support; sending excess calls to our call center when your operators are busy. We can take calls 24 hours a day, during specified hours, or whenever you need assistance.
