We handled over 300,000 calls for the first time, landed our first order taking account.

1995 installed first pc based answering service software

My how times have changed. We were a long way from having smart phones.

1996 doubled in size in 6 years

We took over 600,000 calls that year, and haven't looked back.

1997 we moved

We out grew our old location and had to upgrade. 

2001 another milestone

Processed 1,000,000 calls thats over 2700 calls a day

Our technology is upgraded to keep up with the demands of customers. We started sending text messages and taking online appointments.

2012 another award

5 years running Award of Excellence  from ATSI. Kind of a big deal, today we have received this award over 13 times.  We also upgraded to VOIP.
