Yes
No

Free Trial

Live Receptionist

Although they are called "virtual" receptionists, the person who answers the phone is, in fact, a real person who can use your customized greeting, request information according to your instructions, make warm transfers to you, or take messages.

Appointment Scheduling

You can give your receptionist access to your calendar or scheduler so they can book appointments for you.

Client Intake

A virtual receptionist service can be a partner in your intake process rather than only and ask questions and gather information according to your intake script.

Outbound Calls

Some virtual receptionist services will make calls for you in order to relay basic information such as confirming an appointment, providing directions to your office, or making referrals.

Free Local or Toll-Free Phone Number

You may prefer to use a different phone number to help you track your callers, or a toll-free number to make it easier for some people to contact you.

Live Chat

We're using live chat to mean chat plus a team to respond to inquiries, as opposed to a chat tool you can use to respond yourself.

Chat Tool

With a chat tool you can add a chat box to your website so that visitors can chat directly with you or your firm staff when you are available.

Chatbot

A chatbot is an automated messaging tool for automated communication with visitors to your website or within commonly used messaging apps like Facebook Messenger. Some are essentially a guided form, while others might use AI to answer more complex questions.

Call Routing

With call routing you can direct incoming calls based on criteria you set. For example, you could send existing clients directly to the lawyer handling their matter. Or distribute potential client calls evenly among intake staff. Or just send calls to your virtual receptionist after hours.

Voicemail Transcription

Your phone service can transcribe your voicemails using text recognition software so you can read your messages instead of listening to them.

Call Recording

"This call may be recorded for quality control purposes." Only if you want to, of course.

Call Analytics

Use information about your calls to identify patterns, calculate the ROI of your marketing efforts, and improve your client service.

Text Messaging

Send and receive text messages using your business phone system.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of Back Office Betties?

As of this review, Back Office Betties offers four different pricing tiers starting at $309 per month (billed monthly). As is pretty standard, these are based on the amount of minutes you use. Each increase in tier reduces your per-minute pricing. Keep in mind, however, that only the Unlimited tier has certain integrations.

Additional Details about Back Office Betties

Dedicated team

The Betties assign each law firm a team of 4–8 receptionists, depending on the plan. This team assists a set of around 200 firms. Or, if you’re in the Unlimited plan, 40 firms. Either way, your particular receptionists should be familiar with your practice.

All future Betties are specially trained by legal professionals and must pass a 2-week legal training program before working with their attorney clients. Betties Legal Academy features courses focused on legal terminology and common legal issues so Betties can speak knowledgeably to you and your clients. All receptionists must pass this course with a 100% grade before they start working with attorneys. They also have to pass a quiz about your law firm and goals for working with Back Office Betties before they can start taking and making calls for your practice.
