Beyond the Busy Signal: How to Handle Your Call Volume

Date: Wednesday, June 1st, 2016
Time: 3:00pm - 4:00pm ET
Free Member Webinar 

For most of your customers, a plumbing or HVAC issue ignites panic: they come home to a flood in the kitchen; the heat went out at 3 a.m., and it’s -30 degrees outside; the air conditioner just quit working on the hottest day of the year. And during this emergency, what happens when they dial your number and no one answers? They pull out the phone book or go online and your competitor gets their business.

In this webinar, Russell Schmidt and Josh Ulrich of Time Communications, a call-answering service based in Minnesota, review the common issues on-call service companies face, how the cost of just one missed phone call can impact the bottom line, and how today’s technology can help improve your customers’ experience.

Our industry is no stranger to working in cramped spaces with varying conditions that can be deemed hazardous. Although practicing safe habits and protocols on the job comes with our territory, a recent OSHA ruling includes attics and crawlspaces as confined spaces in many cases. This will require new processes and on the job techniques to address the confined space hazards. This means more training and new routines, and may require some new tools. We will focus this session on thermal and atmospheric hazards.
