Dedicated Reception Service Debutes In Chattanooga

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Schedule Butler announces the opening of their premier professional call answering and scheduling concierge service aimed at small businesses in the Chattanooga area. This receptionist resource serves as a personalized assistant to answer businesses’ calls, return messages, and schedule appointments. 

“Business owners who work with their hands aren’t always available to take calls from customers,"said Jarred Bailey, co-founder of Schedule Butler. "With this new service, these businesses partner with our butlers to ensure strong customer service."

"Businesses will no longer miss opportunities that serve this great community because they are busy doing what they do best,” added Nic Hanzelik, co-founder of Schedule Butler. 

Schedule Butler pairs each business with a dedicated butler, meaning customers receive a consistent experience every time they call. No more calling and getting a different person every time – each butler becomes an extension of a team, and an expert on the business. Butlers will also request 5-star reviews after services are provided, making it easier for future customers to find businesses’ online profiles. By sending out appointment reminders, taking all calls, and rescheduling appointments, Schedule Butler frees up business owners to grow their business at a faster rate than before, said officials. 

Schedule Butler’s services are available for hire to businesses through schedulebutler.com.
