We are located in the friendly confines of the greater Savannah, Georgia area — the Hostess City of the South.

We also have one published incoming line, so if my office manager is on the phone, it rolls over to the call center. I prefer to have customers speak directly to a person to alleviate ‘phone tag.’
The call center is booking our leads, which is also awesome for all the reasons mentioned. Plus if you call a prospect as soon as the lead is received, chances are they are still at home and you can reach them in person. Ultimately, this adds up to better and faster customer service – and more appointments booked.”
I’m grateful to have the CMSCOM team as part of our team.”
Cedric and Rita’s Story
Window covering franchisees in Fulshear, TX.
With CMSCOM, the phone calls were being answered or followed up immediately. But the incoming emails (through the corporate website) would be put off. We have a large service area and there was just so much coming in. We couldn’t always get to those email leads as quickly as we wanted.
When Rita and I heard about the opportunity (to try Incoming Lead), we were ecstatic. We saw it as an opportunity to get all those leads and get CMSCOM to follow up on them immediately. Given we already had Appointment Desk established, it was a natural fit. And it has really created continuity and consistency for how we follow up on all the leads that flow in, regardless of where they originated.”

They all seem to enjoy their work. I’ve never felt like we were a bother.”
When Is It Time for Live Answering Services?
If your plan is to depend on Voice Mail, consider this:
- 30% of messages aren’t picked up for at least 3 days. – The New York Times
- 80% of callers, who are sent to voice mail, hang up. – Forbes Magazine
- 20% of people who have voice mail, never even check it. – The New York Times
If you think email or social media can cover customer service, consider this:
- 69% still choose the telephone over other channels. – Forrester’s Customer Experience Survey
- 90% prefer to resolve issues using the telephone. – American Express Global Customer Service Barometer
- 98% of sales that close are telephone calls. – Corporate Message Services client survey
When making a plan about your customer service plan, first ask yourself:
- Do incoming calls have a direct or indirect impact on my actual revenue?
- How many prospect or client calls are sent to voicemail on any given week?
- How many calls do I receive, in which callers do not leave a message?
- How much time do I devote each week to listening to voicemails?
- Do I have an efficient escalation plan for important calls that come in after hours?
- Could an answering service reduce costs for a part-time or full-time employee? Or free them up for other important duties?
- Do I really answer my mobile every time it rings?
Also, consider your answer rate. When customers call, they are highly motivated to take action. But, what if they can’t connect due to:
- Dropped calls
- Missed calls
- Out-of-service- area calls
- Abandoned calls
