Answering Service or Call Center: What’s the Difference?

It’s a question that we always hear, and the answer is surprisingly nuanced. Let’s break it down. The difference between an answering service and a call center lies in how the services are supported. An answering service may be supported by one person or several, while a call center employs one or more people. The first has a single customer support agent to carry out on behalf of that customer, while the second has multiple agents handling several customers simultaneously.
