Case Study 3: Can’t be in two places at once?
Tom is a chiropractor who works on his own. He sees clients in medical suites he shares with other practices. When Tom is seeing clients, which is most of his day, clients can’t reach him, so have to leave voicemail messages to request or reschedule appointments. Tom spends time at the end of each day ringing back clients, sometimes finding it difficult to catch them. New clients occasionally go elsewhere before making their first appointment.
"The Back Office" virtual office service and Diary Management service provides Tom with a real person at the end of his phone line. Tom wants to keep his existing number, so he redirects his business line to the number LINK allocated to him. Our receptionists assist Tom’s new and existing clients in making enquiries, making appointments and rescheduling appointments. When our reception staff can’t help, a detailed message is taken. Tom now only needs to deal with calls that need his personal attention.
He will need:
- "The Back Office" virtual office service @ $ 72.30 per week
- Diary Management @ $ 50.00 per hour
Total cost per week $172.30
(Assuming 2 hours per week for diary management and 5 calls per day on average)
Case Study 4: Do all your calls seem to come at the wrong time?
Elizabeth works for a recruitment firm. Their representatives are often out of the office meeting clients and, if there is only one person in the office, other calls can’t get through. They need a service where a real person answers the phone and gathers all appropriate information so that the call can be returned, but they also need flexibility so that urgent calls can be attended to quickly.
"The Telephone" service allows Elizabeth and her colleagues to attend to their business meetings and interviews knowing that their calls are being answered appropriately. LINK staff capture the callers name, business name, location, phone number and email address and take details of the nature of the call. Urgent calls are SMSed to staff who are out of the office.

- "The Telephone" virtual office service @ $ 42.65 per week
- External message transfer by SMS @ $ 1.35 each
Total cost per week $45.35
