What is a Virtual Receptionist?

A traditional live receptionist is usually reserved for large corporations who don’t mind paying the overhead expense for the added benefits that help improve efficiency and customer satisfaction. While your team may not have a designated real person handling calls, you can still access the benefits of a receptionist with Yodel’s virtual receptionist (auto-attendant) technology.

Yodel’s virtual receptionist system is able to act as a live receptionist at all points of the call. Use Yodel to automatically greet callers with a custom message, and learn their reason for calling. The call will then be intelligently routed to the appropriate team member with voice IVR technology.

Using IVR to route a call

Yodel’s virtual receptionist system is the perfect solution for small businesses who are looking for a way to improve their call handling, without a significant additional expense.

Auto-attendant vs. Live Virtual Receptionist

Yodel is able to give you the capabilities to have either a fully automated virtual receptionist, or a human live receptionist who works remotely.

A fully automated virtual receptionist lets Yodel do the work for you. Features such as intelligent voice IVR, call screening and more allow Yodel to route calls the same way a live receptionist would.

If you are looking for a live human receptionist but don’t have one central office location, a live virtual receptionist could be the perfect solution. Yodel enables human live receptionists to work remotely, while still staying in contact with the rest of your team.

This allows you to use Yodel the way that works best for your team.

Why Yodel Makes the Perfect Virtual Assistant

Customizable Welcome Message: Set up a customizable welcome message that will greet all of your incoming callers.

Discover Intent: Learn why incoming calls are being made, which can be read or listened to live. This can help the call be directed to the right team member, who already will have basic information.

Voice IVR: Automatically route callers based on what they are saying, similar to how a live receptionist would route them. Eliminating the need for a “press 1 for sales, press 2 for support” system.

Text Messages: Easily send an SMS message to your callers, helping you respond even if you can’t answer the incoming call.

Business SMS

Music on Hold: Set up customizable music for your callers to hear if you need to put them on hold.

Music on hold

Office Hours: Make sure that your callers always know when your team is available by setting up office hours that notify incoming callers.
