Melbourne, AustraliaNovember 17, 2011 — Alltel Pty Ltd (, a leading provider of telecommunications solutions to Australian businesses, today announced a special Christmas offer to promote their Live Answering Service.

“The silly season is fast approaching, when people often feel that there aren’t enough hours in the day,” said Trent Brinsley, Alltel’s General Manager. “Our Christmas special this year is designed to help ease the load by offering live answering services starting from less than a dollar a day!

“With a live answering service, our Australian-based operators answer your calls when you’re not available. Our call centres operate 24/7, including public holidays, so you never miss a call.”

Unanswered calls = lost business, with studies consistently showing that 3 out of every 4 callers simply hang up when their call goes through to voicemail. That’s 75% of calls lost!

No-one wants to lose 75% of their calls and the potential business those calls represent, but not everyone can justify the expense of a receptionist. That’s where live answering services come in.

Live answering operators answer calls in your business name, and then take messages that are immediately forwarded to you by SMS and email. With some services, you can even arrange to have calls directly connected to you.

You can redirect calls to your live answering service from your home, mobile and office numbers, including 1300 numbers and 1800 numbers. You can also select the times, days and conditions under which you want calls to be answered (e.g. after hours, weekends, public holidays, and when your line is busy or not answering).

“Our Christmas special waives the usual minimum term contract on our Messages 24/7 service if you sign up before December 16,” said Brinsley. “That means that if you find you no longer need the service in the new year once things have settled down, you can cancel at any time without paying a cancellation fee. It’s hassle free and contract free!”

“So give yourself a well deserved present this silly season, and let Alltel answer your calls."

To take advantage of this promotion, contact Alltel before December 16, 2011 on 1300 ALLTEL (1300 255 835) or visit Alltel’s web site at
