National or Local: Which Answering Service Is Best?
Have you been enjoying the Summer Olympic Games? I know I have. Of course, there are many different sports and just about everyone has a few favorites they follow closely throughout the competition. I especially enjoy the personal stories about the athletes; and how their hard work, dedication and discipline has enabled them to overcome adversity and compete on a national level to represent their respective countries. So what does this have to do with answering services?
Making A Choice
I think a big part of it comes down to choices. The athletes competing in the Olympics do have some natural talents and skills, but each of them had to choose to put everything they had into becoming the best at their sport. After all, there are literally thousands, if not millions of other athletes all across our country that are competing in that same sport. If I make that comparison to our industry, there are many local providers of answering services around the country, but it is a much smaller group that can compete on a national level.
The Direction We Chose
Right from the start, Main Line TeleCommunications chose to be the best possible provider of professional answering services as we could be. No, we haven’t won any gold medals, but we have won ATSI’s Award of Excellence several years in a row, which is the top national industry competition for answering service providers.
National or Local
Don’t get me wrong, we do proudly serve a large number of local clients. But to be our best we chose to invest the extra time, energy and efforts into being able to compete on a national level. We believe it is those investments that enable us to better serve our local clients and stay at the top of our game. If you are considering using an answering service, or upgrading from your current provider, please be sure to investigate the positive differences a national provider can bring to the table.
