Welcome to our webpage! South Suburban Answering & Secretarial Service was founded in 1972 by my mother, Shirley Prout. We started out with 3 employees in a small office with a multi-line switch board and wrote messages down by hand.
I bought the business from my mother in 2000. We now operate a state-of-the-art phone system with a variety of options for delivering messages. We’ve grown to about 15 part-time employees. Through all of these technological advances, the one thing that has always stayed the same are the values that my mother started the business with; keeping it a locally, family owned company, and offering personalized options and excellent customer service, second to none. We currently have between 150 and 200 accounts, many of whom have been using our services for over 10 years. We have a list of great references that will acclaim our hard work and exceptional personalized service.

We take the time to learn about each customer’s needs, so that we are able to give the same personalized service you would receive from a receptionist or secretary in your own office. We are willing to do those extra little things that are so necessary in giving this type of service. My staff of Telephone Receptionists are well trained and experienced.
We consider our clients to be like family, and we will go the extra mile to deliver outstanding customer service. Please feel free to contact us to discuss our different services and pricing. We look forward to speaking with you!
