When our clients call, a super nice person – not a machine – answers the phone and is able to connect that client to us no matter where we are. Ruby works 13 hours a day during the week, never gets sick, never takes a day off, never complains, and can handle as much call volume as you can throw at her for a price you just have to see to believe.”
