A Cost-Effective Alternative to Hiring

Many businesses, large and small, often require additional staffing to help with the phones, but don’t necessarily need or want to hire another full or part-time employee. Some of our clients are small businesses that have little or no staff, they might not have a regular office, but need their callers to receive excellent customer service. Hartley’s Answering Service provides that additional bump in staffing at a fraction of the cost of hiring.
