Boost your business’ bottom line with outsourced switchboard

Boost your bottom line

It’s hard to overstate the recent changes. Our ways of working have evolved 10 years in only a few months.

Some good. Some bad. Right now, there won’t be a single business not paying close attention to their bottom line, and what improvements could be made. Outsourcing your switchboard can help ease the pressure on your balance sheet and relieve potential staffing issues.

Benefit from savings while keeping service levels high

Whilst businesses and customers get back to pre-March working levels, and staff are brought back from furlough, many businesses are paying close attention to the effects the past 7 months have had on their balance sheets.

Tough decisions are being made. Departments and roles are being evaluated. This is understandable. But no business can afford to cut overheads at the expense of first-class service.

Any top business understands that customer needs must not be affected by any budget revaluation you run. At the base-level of customer service, their calls must be answered every time they contact your business, with no calls being missed. Try Moneypenny’s switchboard calculator to see how much outsourcing could save your business.

Save up to 60% of your current switchboard costs 

This is where an outsourced switchboard can help both service levels and a business’s operational budget. Outsourcing your switchboard could save up to 60% in operational costs in reduced overheads, while answering every single incoming call, and increasing service levels.

Danny Beattie, IT Business Partner for Total Fitness, explains:

“Moneypenny answers our calls 24 hours a day and even books fitness classes on our behalf. Moneypenny treats our members as if they were their own. Having been on board for over a year now, naturally our needs have fluctuated in line with industry trends and Moneypenny’s flexibility has been a huge bonus. Their service is a great asset to us and I would highly recommend them to any business.”

While a Digital Switchboard – in which IVR allows the caller to route themselves to the person or department they want to speak to – could save up to 80% compared with your current switchboard costs.

Enjoy a flexible resource when needed

You may realise that you only need outsourced assistance some of the time, and costs savings can be made by cutting out of hours in-house switchboard coverage. Moneypenny’s Outsourced Switchboard is a flexible resource, available to suit your needs and as scalable as you need it to be.

Experienced Moneypenny Receptionists can answer your calls either some of the time – for instance while your in-house team is busy due to high call traffic at certain times of the day – or after office hours, and 24/7 if necessary, as Adrian Lee, Managing Director for Flooring Supplies, puts:

 “Our Moneypenny Receptionist, Ashleigh, answers all the calls our in-house team can’t get to. During our trial we were surprised with how many calls we were missing. But having Ashleigh making sure no call goes unanswered has made a huge difference to our customer care.”

Manage your ongoing risk

Our support team has spoken to scores of businesses over the past several months about building an outsourced switchboard provision into their business continuity plans. Both businesses that already use Moneypenny’s services and those that haven’t outsourced before, have been keen to make sure no calls are ever missed should anything happen to their teams.

Moneypenny’s switchboard is completely scalable, meaning our receptionists can answer calls if your team contracts without any disruption to your callers. It’s a seamless operation.
