The success of your business depends on your ability to be responsive to all customers and clients in a friendly and professional manner. With an increasingly diverse consumer base, businesses need bilingual virtual receptionists to support the needs of Spanish-speaking callers. According to the Pew Research Center, Spanish is primary languages to more than 37 million individuals in the U.S. Reports by the Department of Commerce indicate that Hispanics will represent 31 percent of the country’s population by 2060. With this numbers in mind, you are cut off from a huge potential market for your products or services when you neglect Spanish language customer service.
At The Best Call Center, we make it easy for you to accommodate customers who prefer to do business in Spanish. You can get bilingual virtual receptions at no extra charge. Even though many of the Spanish-speaking callers may have some grasp of English, having bilingual answering service shows that your company values their business and cares enough to make them feel comfortable. As a result, customer retention and goodwill increase, and satisfied callers will be more likely to refer you to other people. Having full-time bilingual customer service makes good business sense, especially given the fact that you get it all at no additional charge.
No call should be considered routine, especially when there’s an urgent request from a current or potential customer. Slow service and ill-equipped call patching can have you losing customers to your next competitor. You might be missing many crucial calls when your office phone just won’t stop ringing.

But there are times when certain types of calls need to be immediately transferred to you or a specified member of your team. We partner with you to determine which call merit special attention. The protocols can be changed at any time as you wish.
When patching a call, our virtual receptionists will courteously put the caller on hold, try to get in touch with you on a separate line, and if you are available, the call will be transferred to you. We regularly connect and route urgent calls for bail bonds professional, doctors, lawyers, plumbers, and other professionals during all hours of the day. While most other answering companies will offer you call patching with hidden fees, we don’t believe in charging our customers for transferring their calls. We keep our pricing simple and honest.
With The Best Call Center, you save time and also save money because we bill by the minute. The billing stops once you are connected and our live operator hangs up.
