After-Hours Telephone Answering Services In Iowa & all of the U.S.

…with an emphasis on customer service.

24/7 Answering

You can completely customize our after hours answering services to your needs — weekends, holidays, and certain days of the week. Whether its handling overflow during business hours or answering a 2 a.m. emergency call.

Messaging For
Your Business

Not everyone makes phone calls anymore– much of business is handled by email, texts and other digital messaging platforms. If you’re having a hard time staying on top of incoming messages, you’re not alone. Make sure you don’t miss the important messages with Quad Cities message delivery services for fax, voicemail, text and email.

HIPAA Compliant
Medical Answering

Medical answering services are as important as ever these days. We are HIPAA compliant and offer a wide variety of answering and messaging services to suit the needs of all hospitals, clinics, doctors offices, hospices and dental practices.


Dealing with every single call costs you time– and time is money. We can forward your calls during peak hours, allowing you to extend your office staff in an affordable way. The calls can be responded to as you direct, or transferred to your office or cell phone. We can even send these messages to voicemail, email or fax.

You may notice the SM+ app for Android has a fresh, new look. All the same great features are still there, and are easier to use than ever.
