Your on-demand team of receptionists

1 Select a Number, or Forward Yours to Us
When you sign up for services, we'll provide you with a local or toll-free phone number. If you already have a number that you want to continue using, that works too. You can either forward the calls to your PATLive number, or you can port the number in to reside on our platform.
2 Configure Your Custom Call Flow
Our agents can do as little or as much as you'd like when answering your calls. When you set up service, a script consultant will talk with you to understand your needs. We then setup a custom call flow for our agents to follow. Whether you need us to take messages, collect leads, receive orders, register event attendees or act as your virtual receptionist, our team will put together a script that meets your needs.
3 Receive a Call Summary for Every Call
When we begin answering your calls (within 24 hours after you activate your script), we'll follow the call flow you designed and send you the corresponding message, lead, order, etc. within minutes of call completion.

A Full Range of Caller Options Available to Use in Your Call Flow

Make your customers feel heard by never sending them to voicemail. This customer needs help after hours, when Golf Tailor cannot answer calls. The information is collected by a real person at PATLive, and can be acted on first thing in the morning by a Golf Tailor representative.

In this call, our client sent out a direct mail campaign to potential real estate investment opportunities, and had the calls forwarded to us. This allowed him to easily sort through potential leads and avoid being overwhelmed with calls.

Allow us to schedule appointments so you can focus on getting your work done. In this call, a PATLive agent handles appointment scheduling for a chiropractor, freeing the practitioners to concentrate on their patients.

Never miss a sale from large advertising campaigns when you use PATLive for overflow and after-hours answering. In this call, a PATLive representative assists a customer by completing an order using a promo code sent via a direct mail campaign.
