Our Customer Service Professionals are Dedicated to Customer SatisfactionIs AnswerFirst right for your business?

Think about why you feel you need a contact center.

Is it because you believe people like doing business with other people?

Ask yourself, should my business be providing help, answers or solutions to clients, vendors, partners or the public 24/7/365?

Next, when looking for a person, product, information or service, is speaking with a live, helpful, person the quickest way to either get it done or get the message across?

If you answered yes, then you have determined why you should choose AnswerFirst.

Benefits of Partnership with AnswerFirst

Quick and Professional Response Time
We do a terrific job of insuring proper Customer Service Professional staffing. 90% of our calls are answered by one of our CSPs within two rings. Only 1-3% of calls land in our hold queue and our average hold time is less than 15 seconds.
Superior Experience
We never place your callers on hold to answer other calls. Once our CSP answers your call, they take the call to conclusion while being as courteous and helpful as possible. This results in an efficient, pleasant experience for your callers.
Dispatch Operators
Every new message an inbound CSP takes is sent to our dispatch queue for a second set of eyes to look over it before delivery. This is to insure that every message we send is accurate and professional.  Dispatch operators are also our most experienced Customer Service Professionals.

We provide HIPAA & PCI Compliant Secure Messaging

Trusted by Thousands Of Businesses

We are constantly considering why our clients choose to partner with us.

We believe that this consideration is the key added value that enables us to provide our clients, and theirs, first-class service.

We listen.

We make sure that, through questions, conversation and feedback, we really understand what our clients want.  And, if we can not give them what they want, we tell them we can’t, then follow that truth, with what we CAN do if we feel there may be other ways to meet their needs.

When we make mistakes, we don’t just apologize.

We address our errors with humility, integrity and honesty and we follow-up by making the necessary adjustments to limit future occurrences of the same issues.  We are humans and humans make errors. It’s how we handle our mistakes that makes a difference.

Every time we speak with our partners, and their clients, we do so with respect and professionalism in mind.

We envision a world where all companies provide top-notch customer service to all of their clients and we are making our vision a reality by doing our part to provide all of our clients and their clients with the best customer service experiences possible.  Every time. All the time.

  • After having dealt with for prior answering service companies, it was a pleasure working with this team through our transition. AnswerFirst accommodated our needs precisely and worked with us to make sure that we got what we wanted. The onboarding process was also very organized and methodical. So far our daily experiences with the company are very good, and we have found the operators to be very professional and friendly sounding. So far very happy customer!

    I have researched and found this organization to be respectable. I have talked to a long-time employee who couldn't speak more highly of AnswerFirst. I would like very much to be associated with AnswerFirst and have begun the application process, which I find is very straightforward and rigorous. I look forward, if hired, to use my people skills to listen to and problem solve for their callers.

    Answer First is not only a cost effective option, but, their service is wonderful! We needed to make a change on account and they acted in a timely manner, helping us save additional money! I was amazed that they placed us on waiting list for number and made the change without us following up. Great change of pace from the usual companies out there. I would definitely recommend. A special mention of our rep, Crystal Peterson. She is great!

  • AnswerFirst provides 24/7 answering service with friendly, helpful assistance to my clients. I receive a phone message via my cell & email w/in 1 min of a client calling & all the information is correct (name/phone/subject matter). I wish I had been using AnswerFirst since I started my business 2 years ago. I actually save money and get accurate & efficient information for a fraction of the cost of having a full-time receptionist. The service is awesome!
