What Our Clients Say

I am pleased to give a testimonial about Director on Call. We have been very pleased with their service we have received since switching from our former answering service. It is so nice to have complete confidence that our phones are being answered by such professional associates that work for this firm. We have no fear of having any problems with our families or their friends as they are seeking information. They give the appearance that they are just part of our caring team ready to serve the families who call on us at the time of a death.

I have used five Telephone Answering Services over the past 18 months and have finally found a service I am totally happy with!

I have been using the services of Director on Call for many years now as having my families served 24 hours a day is very important to me. They offer complete transparency when representing my Funeral Home. We had a woman come into our facility the day after speaking to with an operator at Director on Call. She asked to see Brenda. Brenda, a Director on Call operator had spoken with her the night before with compassion and empathy and she wanted to thank her. She didn’t realize that Brenda was with Director on Call; she thought she worked at the Funeral Home. Director on Call’s operators really help our families.
