Great question. Would you get a part time receptionist to answer the phone sometimes, or a full time receptionist that costs a lot of money? From hiring and pay, to benefits and vacation and a phone system to maintain, hiring a receptionist is expensive. If you paid a receptionist only $10 an hour for 40 hours per week it would cost you over $1700 a month. Did we mention that does not include taxes, insurance, or even a desk and computer, training, and your time and frustration? This could add up to well over $2500 a month! Compare that with the cost of a VR and you’ll understand why it’s the smartest move.
