If you are like many of us you are looking at the calendar and thinking “how is it already Thanksgiving”? It seems as though the holiday season has come upon us very quickly this year. For many Americans, Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season and it is the time that many businesses count on answering services more than any other single time of the year. The Thanksgiving holiday is, of course, a time to be together with friends and family. It originated as a day to give thanks for the harvest but now it is just as much about being thankful for and acknowledging the people in our lives and gathering together to enjoy each other’s company.
For business owners this means taking the day off and giving employees the day to spend with their loved ones. For many businesses, it also means that having an answering service in place is essential in order to keep their business running. In the event of an emergency, clients, patients, and prospective customers can still call the office and speak with a live person. The answering service operator is trained to take the information and dispatch a message to an on-call staff member in the case of an emergency.
While there is some debate about the first Thanksgiving celebrations and more specifically when and where the first Thanksgiving was held, one thing is certain, like every other day throughout the year, your business can depend on Centratel to provide the same great call taking and message delivery services our clients have come to know and trust. We wish everyone a fun and safe Thanksgiving and Holiday Season.
