What form of after-hours service does your company provide? Answering service? Pager? Answering machine?
Homeowners can call the regular Compass phone number – 408-226-3300. The voice mail system will give them the option of leaving a message in an emergency voice mail box. This voice mail box will page the on-call manager, who is equipped with a mobile phone. The voice mail system will continue to page the manager every 10 minutes until the manager responds to the page. If the manager has not responded to the emergency page within 30 minutes, then a second manager is automatically paged by the system. If that manager fails to respond within 20 minutes, then the General Manager and President are automatically paged by the system in 10 minute intervals.
