Holiday Phone Cover or time out during “Lockdown” 

You do not want to miss an important call because you are on holidays or key staff are away. Who will cover the office calls when staff are on holidays? Kendlebell Holiday Cover is ideal so you don’t miss a call or come back to mountains of voicemails. We screen calls so you get the important missed calls.

Holiday Cover so you enjoy your well – earned break or time out

Whether you are lying on the beach, or trekking through the Pyrenees, it is the getting away from it all that you need. During Lockdown you may need or are due time out from the office and need that important downtime. Your staff may be due a break too and if they haven’t taken holidays as they can’t travel well they still need time away from the office. You do not want to miss an important call because the signal is bad on the beach or up in the hills. Our Kendlebell PAs will take your calls, answer them, and let you know as per your instructions. That is what makes our Holiday Cover Service so good. You return home to a diary already booked, and important messages emailed to you. This will allow you to go on holidays or take proper time out, safe in the knowledge that all business calls will be handled in a professional manner. See our Holiday cover here 

How does it work?
For the messaging service, a Kendlebell PA will answer your calls with your company name and take the caller’s name, number, and a brief message. These messages will be emailed to you daily at the close of business and you can decide whether to review while on holiday or at the end of the holiday. To provide a booking service we need to know what is already booked. If you already use an online diary, we will need access. We will ensure that your diary is kept completely up to date, dealing with new appointments, cancellations or change of time / date of other appointments daily while you enjoy your holiday.
When making a booking we take a full name and telephone number, and email address for you to follow up as needed later. If your client wants you to contact them urgently, we will take name and number and a brief message and pass on to you immediately if that is your instruction.
During or at the end of the holiday or break you can view the diary, with lots of new bookings in it, and read your messages as you go along or later . The service is priced at very attractive rates see here 

All of this is delivered to you at a very reasonable cost – just visit our website here and see the price table. Remember you only pay for the calls received so effectively it is a “pay as you go” service. Our site has many other services that you can avail of  – just visit us here.
