Virtual Receptionist Features
While all virtual receptionist services include a live receptionist and allow you to use your own phone number, some offer additional features like appointment scheduling or client intake. Availability varies, as well. Some virtual receptionists are available 24/7/365, while others are available during business hours (usually extended to accommodate multiple North American time zones) with voicemail outside of those hours.
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.
Receptionist Hours
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.
Additional Languages
  • Spanish
Chat Features
There are two kinds of chat offerings: live chat and chatbots. Both can be hosted on your website so that visitors can contact your firm by typing rather than calling. Live chat means a real person is available to chat with visitors, like a virtual receptionist for text-based messaging. A chatbot, on the other hand, offers pre-scripted responses to visitors' input, sometimes with the help of AI.
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.
Live Chat Hours
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.
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.
Phone Features
A hosted phone solution allows you to move your entire phone system to the cloud. It can also come with advanced call routing options, call recording, analytics, and more.
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.

Things You Might Want to Know

Free training. As part of your onboarding process, you will receive two trainings on how to get the most out of your virtual receptionist service. You will receive an automatic tutorial when you first log into your LEX Reception dashboard, and a one-on-one tutorial with your dedicated client account manager, going through its Dashboard features in-depth.

Web chat tool. Web chat is offered as a free add-on.

Overage charges. You will receive a notification when you have used 80% of your minutes, and another notification when you have used 100% of your minutes. Once you go over your minute limit, overage charges are an addition $0.15 higher than your selected plan. Otherwise, you have the option to upgrade your plan for that month only instead. Also, you won’t be charged for calls 30-seconds or less.

Month-to-month. Contracts with LEX Reception are month-to-month. This means if you do need to upgrade or downgrade or pause your package for a period of time, you can do that hassle free.

Trained receptionists. Before taking their first call, receptionists are required to go through two weeks of training. The first week is a group training to go over procedures, the second week is a one-on-one mentoring session. After that, receptionists are mentored and coached regularly to ensure that the service they provide is of the highest caliber.

    Exceeded Expectations and continue to excell

    I have had nothing but positive experiences with Lex. From the dedication from tech support to the positive comments from my clients and potential clients. While I’m not deceptive about using a service, most my callers assume there is a person sitting at a reception desk in my lobby. Well done.
