Quick Onboarding is a Necessity in Emergencies

Client Stories

April 01, 2020

With COVID-19 causing abrupt shutdowns nationwide, companies in the service industry must quickly adapt to provide quick onboarding in emergencies.

Focus recently received a call from an HVAC company serving parts of South Carolina and Georgia since 1999. Their answering service had notified the company that two of its agents tested positive for COVID-19 and they would be shutting down at the close of business that day and sending all agents home to self-isolate for 14 days. This essential services company had to find a new answering service FAST. After being referred to two different businesses that were completely saturated – a friend of a friend steered them our way. We were more than happy to help. At 4:00 PM, we put their Setup on the fast track, and we began answering calls for them within two hours.

After just one night of answering calls, we received the following note from the company president: “I am very impressed with your system,” it read. “My office said you guys were a delight to deal with. I was impressed and at 7:31 A.M. I got my digest email of all the calls. Just like you said… I feel we may be sticking with you guys.”
