How Are Answering Service Plans Charged?

There are three different pricing models to fulfill the needs of every type of business whether it’s a small dental clinic or a large vacation rental business. Have a look at them and choose whatever fits your business:

Per-Call Pricing

Per-call pricing is exactly what it sounds like – businesses are charged for every call they receive. If your business receives less calls but of larger durations, this pricing model is a perfect fit for you. In this method, you will be charged on the basis of the total number of total calls received and handled. The drawback with this billing method is that your business may still be required to pay for inbound calls that are accidental, such as customers who dial the wrong number or hang up after a few short seconds. Per-minute Pricing

Per-minute pricing, on the other hand, better reflects the value your business receives. This pricing model is based on the time your call center actually spends supporting your business. This method is preferred by many businesses because it has no ambiguity. In this method, as it name suggests, billing is based on the duration of call preferably the minutes used to answer and handle the calls. Therefore, if your business receives higher number of calls but for lower durations, this pricing model is your go-to choice. Most of our plans are set with standard minutes, and additional fees are charged when you go over the plan’s allotted minutes.

Per month Pricing:

With a per month pricing method, you are charged for every call, every text message, every transferred call, or per unit of every other call activity, for whole of the month altogether. This billing method tends to be a little more ambiguous as there is no proper breakdown where your call minutes are consumed or how they are utilized. If your incoming call patterns fluctuates, with more calls for less durations on some days and less calls for longer duration, you can choose this pricing model for a better outcome.

Factors that can add up to the basic cost of answering service:

Along with call answering, businesses have diverse need of many other services like call patching, appointment scheduling, message taking, call recording and many more. Upon adding up these services into the standard package plan, the pricing of the service also increases. Here are some of the most common ones to keep in mind:

Appointment Scheduling: If your business requires to book the appointments of customers on-call without any delay, this additional service is a best pick for you. We integrate into your own CRM and schedule new appointments directly into it so you can have a real time update. This will not cost much but it has some effect on cost of basic answering service.

Live Call Transfers to On-Call Staff: If you are a service based business that needs to forward emergency calls to on call technicians, this service is a perfect inclusion for you. The call is patched while remaining on the same line so it increases the rate as a per minute charge.

Message Taking: Some businesses need to take messages from the customers to take action later. This message taking service is preferred by many businesses and it is charged as the time taken for call handling.

Some of other main services that can add up to the basic pricing are: call recording, call relay, message relay, real-time date share and many more.
