Live answering services.

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

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!

How Ruby works.


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


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


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


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

Real people in the people business.

Ruby’s awards, recognition, and unprecedented growth all come down to one thing: our culture of people-powered goodness.
