  • "Digital Switchboard is the perfect alternative to a permanent receptionist."

    Simon Shiers, MCS Investment Property

    “Digital Switchboard is the perfect alternative to a permanent receptionist.”

    Simon Shiers, MCS Investment Property

    You might think a company like MCS Investment Property would shy away from the concept of speech recognition to support the work it undertakes for a range of both UK and international clients. Quite the contrary. Making use of innovative technology like Digital Switchboard means it can respond to callers quickly and efficiently at all times, whilst keeping costs down. Win win.

    I couldn’t justify adding a permanent member of staff to our team to cover reception. Thanks to Digital Switchboard, there’s absolutely no need. For an affordable price, it delivers a quality product, supported by experienced people who know their telecoms. A fast set-up made for a refreshing change to our usual experience of ‘back end’ systems. I am confident callers appreciate the professional and efficient response they experience every time they call us.

Known for excellent service and placing a firm emphasis on building individual relationships with clients, Ivy Gate turned to Moneypenny to ensure absolutely every call coming in to the business is captured while delivering consistent client contact whether out on the road or in the office. They needed a consistent answering service throughout the week with a clear method of forwarding messages to mobiles in real time; a seamless integration between on the road and in the office communication with a consistent customer experience throughout.

    It is clear Moneypenny has a dedicated property team which understands the sector as they knew straight away what calls to expect and how to deal with them. Knowing Moneypenny is right behind us is enormously reassuring and our Moneypenny Receptionist works just as hard as we do to make our clients feel special.

    "I'm proud to say, we now never miss a call."

    David Eagle, Royds Withy King Solicitors

    Royds Withy King is a leading law firm with an office network across the south of England. A highly respected solicitors offering specialist advice to both corporate and private clients, Royds Withy King faced pressures on internal resources and knew they needed to outsource their call handling. Moneypenny was recommended to them and after a trial they diverted new business enquiries and main switchboard calls to the call handling experts.

    "We have been surprised by how many calls we would have been missing."

    Mark Openshaw-Blower, Turner Parkinson Solicitors

    Established in Manchester in 1995, Turner Parkinson has grown to be a multiple award-winning specialist business law firm. Turner Parkinson has a large portfolio of clients, meaning capturing every call is vital. For a firm that believes ‘everything and everyone matters’ and works hard to deliver a high quality service, providing a professional and efficient receptionist service is crucial. When the practice lost all telephone landlines due to an issue with its telecoms provider, they relied on Moneypenny’s Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery service.

    Moneypenny took control calmly and effortlessly and as far as our clients were concerned it was business as usual. We found that the staff at Moneypenny couldn’t have been more helpful. They were calm and reassuring and at every stage provided us with an excellent service. We were so impressed, that Moneypenny is now taking overspill calls for us. This is proving particularly useful for very busy periods and to cover staff absences and holidays and ensures that we are never missing a call.

Your burning questions

Can we specify which calls Moneypenny answers?

Absolutely, you can outsource all of your switchboard calls, rely on us for overflow support, add on out of hours cover – how you use us is entirely up to you.

Can employees provide their own call handling instructions?

Yes of course, we understand your team – particularly senior employees and directors – will likely have individual requirements. We don’t follow scripts. Our system allows us to handle calls according to the needs of each individual.

What happens out of hours?

From 6.00pm until 8.30am the next morning, your calls will divert to our voicemail system, where your Moneypenny Receptionist will have recorded a personalised greeting message for you. For support outside of these hours, talk to us about our evening, weekend and 24/7 solutions.

Are calls transferred straight through or announced?

Tell us what suits you. We offer fully-announced and blind transfer services. Need a bespoke mix of the two? We can do this as well.

How does Moneypenny report on calls handled?

We give you access to your own online portal, where you can view a real-time audit of all calls and messages handled. The portal also offers a full range of call statistics, or we can create bespoke reports if you need them. You’ll always have full visibility.

How quickly can we be set up?

Typically, you’ll be up and running within a fortnight. We’ve lots of experience and will work through everything with you step by step, liaising with your telecoms provider directly if you wish.
