How can Virtual HQ assist your school?
As an educational institution, we know that you get many calls a day from prospective students and their families, seeking information on enrolment, campus accommodation, scholarships, textbooks, degrees and subjects. Sometimes they may have questions about registration, loans, events, orientation, careers and employment or are interested in having a tour of the campus. Every call that comes in for your school or university will be answered with your selected personalised greeting by one of our polite and highly trained Australian based virtual receptionists. Telephone calls that come in for your organisation can be immediately transferred to you or a designated staff member. If you are unavailable then our highly trained telephone answering receptionists can take a detailed message and forward this to you or a staff member or department via text, email or both. When you sign up to our team, we ask you to provide us with details about your education facility, so our receptionists can efficiently support the caller, route calls appropriately or take messages. Our telephone representatives can also collect student information, screen calls, dispatch help in emergencies, assist with class registration and answer questions from your FAQ. Our service is so genuine that your callers will be convinced our receptionist is your own employee, sitting in an office on campus.
