To meet the needs of water, gas, and electric companies, housing authorities, military facilities, public health organizations, and other municipal agencies, BTE Communications offers fully customizable phone answering services that are highly cost effective. Our municipal phone answering service plans typically include our after-hours or 24/7 live operator service, voicemail, advanced message delivery, and dispatching. They can also include scheduling, order taking, alarm monitoring and emergency response callouts, and call routing.

BTE has been serving the needs of municipal clients since 1958, and we are among the oldest and most experienced call centers in California. All of our agents have been carefully screened and trained by our dedicated management team and, on average, have about five years of call center experience. They are adept at following call scripts/protocols, listening to the caller, providing stellar customer service, and typing up orders and/or notes. Additionally, our call center takes advantage of the latest telephone answering software and equipment, which makes it possible for us to give each of our clients the best solutions for their needs. Solutions range from prioritizing calls to creating complicated voicemail trees with custom hold prompts to setting up disaster recovery and redundancy plans.
