Houston Virtual Receptionists Provide Big-Texas Image for Small Companies and Home-based Businesses


HOUSTON, TX, July 18, 2007 — Every day, Houston virtual assistants help small business owners observe the Texas motto – ’everything is bigger in Texas’" – says Iain Clarke, co-owner of Intelligent Office, a Houston-Galleria based virtual receptionist company.

“Everybody knows everything is bigger in Texas,” says Clarke, “and a virtual receptionist or virtual assistant makes even the smallest home-based business look bigger, too.”

Unlike typical Houston answering services, says Clarke, “our virtual receptionists provide small business owners with a competitive advantage by giving them the presence and image of a large company. Image and first impressions are everything for a small business,” he says, “so anything our remote receptionists can do to make a little company look big is part of their job.”

Intelligent Office virtual receptionists handle a clients’ phone communications from 8:30 to 5, five days a week by putting calls directly through to the business owner – “whether it’s on their cell phone at the lake or in their home office located 25 miles away in Kingwood or Clear Lake,” says Clarke. Intelligent Office virtual receptionists and assistants are based in the Galleria Tower I, located behind Neiman Marcus in the Galleria area.

Clarke says a virtual receptionist’s computer displays six pages of client information and connection points for every call that comes through. “Unlike other Houston answering services, our remote receptionists speak knowledgeably and professionally about a client’s company without the usual chaotic ‘Grand Central Station’ background noise.” He says the virtual receptionists work with information provided by the client.

Clarke says it is Intelligent Office’s Follow-Me® communications technology that enables virtual receptionists and assistants to provide small business clients a professional advantage. “Providing Houston small business owners with ‘working large’ image is what we are all about.”

Clarke says many small business owners spend less than $300 a month for virtual and remote receptionist services, “which is about 90 percent less than the average receptionist salary, including benefits.” He says Houston small business owners also have the option to rent a conference room or small office by the hour and use the Intelligent Office exclusive Post Oak address on business communications and for incoming mail.

“Our virtual receptionists either forward all mail to the client’s home or hold it for them and they pick it at our Galleria offices.”

Intelligent Office small business owners have the luxury of focusing on building a customer base rather than answering the phone and sorting mail, says Clarke. “Our virtual receptionists provide great value to Houston’s small business owners in helping them compete against large companies in their market. As the legend goes,” says Clarke, “everything is bigger in Texas.”
