Frequently asked questions
How does the answering service work?
Your caller dials your number which diverts to your dedicated Beserved number which in turn pops the screen for your Beserved PA who will answer as you have requested and the message will be delivered to you in your designated format (email / SMS or direct transfer).
How do I divert my Calls?
Most phone lines are easily set up to allow call divert. You can divert all your calls, or only when you are on another call, when there is no answer or after hours.
How long does it take to set me up?
It largely depends on the complexity, a simple set up takes just a few hours.
Can you supply a telephone number?

It is only at this stage BeServed is able to quote the right package. Rest assured, we are always very competitive.
Why is it better to use your service than divert calls to my mobile?
