  • Comfortable work environments
  • Flexible scheduling for employees

Porter comments, "Acquiring key customers through acquisitions has enabled 1-800 We Answer to grow rapidly and expand into new markets. Over the last three years, We Answer has purchased 14 answering services across the United States and has created a network of call centers servicing thousands of clients nationwide. Integrating key new clients and hundreds of new employees into our existing infrastructure has been a challenging and rewarding process. We are especially proud that the core customer base of all recent acquisitions has remained intact, strengthening the one brand and giving us the added satisfaction of being a job creator in this unusually down economy."

Having developed a business model that others in the teleservices industry aspire to, Porter's plan to set the communications industry bar even higher with cutting edge services is unwavering.
