Live answering services.

Turning your business phone into a customer-acquiring, client-impressing machine with Ruby’s live virtual answering services.

Virtual Receptionists

Ruby is not your average
answering service.

Every answering service answers phone calls on behalf of another business. But only Ruby takes call answering a step further.

We’re the real, live, connection-making, customer-impressing, extension to your in-house team. Our virtual receptionists answer and transfer calls, provide FAQs, take messages, and focus on maximizing customer satisfaction—and we sound like we’re right in your office!

24/7 live answering

Full-time, part-time, overflow, after-hours—Ruby’s virtual receptionists are there for your callers whenever they need you.

Flexible call forwarding

Answer only the calls you want to answer. We’ll handle the rest. Send all or some of your calls to Ruby, or use us as backup.

Instant notifications

After a receptionist wraps up a call, we send a notification via email, text, or the Ruby app. Stay connected to your customers and on top of your call activity at any time, from any device.

Appointment scheduling

We work with your preferred calendaring system through your website, so you’re never double-booked.

Lead capture

Ruby captures potential new customers or clients while screening out solicitors and unwanted calls. We’re happy to transfer leads directly to you.

Payment processing

Receptionists in a secure facility can enter payment information into your payment processing link. 

Outbound calling

Need to confirm an appointment or gather details from a client? Send Ruby a request through the app and we’ll handle the call.

Bilingual receptionists

Ruby’s bilingual virtual receptionists ensure callers feel at ease and heard in their preferred language (English or Spanish).

HIPAA compliance

All Ruby receptionists complete HIPAA training, and we have additional HIPAA security on-site to protect you and your patients’ information.

Number porting and hosting

Tap into enhanced features and save money by using Ruby to host your business number. You can even eliminate your phone bill!

Robocall filtering

Automatically route robocalls to your Ruby voicemail box—we don’t answer them live or charge you for them.

Custom voicemail

Don’t want 24/7 answering? No problem. Ruby gives you unlimited voicemail boxes with customized greetings. Check recordings and transcripts instantly.

How Ruby works.

Step 1

We say hello to your caller with a customized greeting. “Thank you for calling ABC Company, how may I help you today?”


Step 2

Based on your customized call-handling instructions, we either forward the call to you, take a message, or send the caller to voicemail.


Step 3

When the call is complete, the receptionist sends an email, text, or app notification with the caller’s message and any relevant details.

Step 4

We can engage your callers in other ways including answering FAQs, scheduling appointments and completing short intake forms.
