Hear what our client Michaela Knight from Synergy Cleaning has to say about her experience with Cymphony’s 24/7 answering service:

“I own a large cleaning business in York. When I first opened, I was on my own and received 24/7 enquiries, so I felt constantly stressed about missing big sales calls.

Cymphony were recommended to me as a virtual reception to take my calls and recommend the most important potential customers, which meant I could decide if I wanted to call back.

I have to say they were a godsend and I’ve used them for 10 years. It gave my company a much more impactful impression and I do believe I gained more business from having them. I would 100% recommend these guys, I genuinely can't find anything negative to write about their service. They were absolutely life-changing for me and my business.”
