Compare per call & per minute answering service pricing

Telephone answering service pricing guide.

Specialty offers two levels of pricing where your monthly cost is calculated either by paying per call, or by paying per each minute our virtual receptionists are working on your behalf. For small businesses looking to experience the best answering service at the lowest possible cost, we’ve created a cost comparison tool to show you which pricing model is the cheapest.

Quickly calculate the costs and savings of our telephone answering service on either a pay per call rate or a per minute pricing model. Just complete the form below, click the compare button, and we’ll show you the most affordable option.

This telephone answering service comparison tool is intended to be an informative tool to help current and future SAS customers get an estimate of how much our phone answering service will cost them each month. The results of the form are based on factors as entered such as how long our virtual receptionists are on a call and how many calls SAS will handle each month. As this is just an estimate, we cannot guarantee that the tool will reflect the actual costs of using Specialty Answering Service, and as a result, you should not base your monthly invoices or cost on this tool alone. We suggest that you also try us out for free so we can monitor your volume, call length, and provide a more exact estimate. By using this tool, you agree that the results provided are not intended to be legally binding. All figures are rounded to the nearest dollar. Only call lengths of less than or equal to two minutes are eligible to receive a pay per call pricing estimate.
