Your burning questions

Where are Moneypenny Receptionists based given the current social restrictions in place?

For the time being, our team has transitioned to 100% homeworking. Whilst this isn't affecting our service or team camaraderie in any way, we're all very much looking forward to the day we can return to the office and catch up with one another in person!

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.

How will our Moneypenny Receptionists deal with members of my team working remotely?

This isn't a problem whatsoever - your Moneypenny Receptionists will have a diary with all your colleagues' names and numbers to hand. Call handling instructions can be tailored differently for each employee; whether that's transferring calls to landlines or mobiles, or sending messages immediately via email or SMS.

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?

Tell us what your timescales are and we'll do our best to accommodate your needs. Typically, you'll be up and running within a matter of days. We've lots of experience and will work through everything with you step by step, liaising with your telecoms provider directly if you wish.
