Your Business. Your Call.

Even in the digital age, a business’s phone line can be a lifeline. Advanced automation is great, except for when it tries to replace one-on-one interaction with a real person. Through almost 70 years of technological revolution, the Hastings Humans have remained true to one core value: customer service will always rely on people talking to people. That’s how you get better customer satisfaction, better online reviews, and, ultimately, more repeat business. All of our customer service agents operate out of our Austin office, so your company is always represented by a highly trained, high touch Hastings Human.

Will your company make the right call?

Hastings Humans has provided highest quality call center and telephone answering services since 1948. What began as a one-woman household operation has grown into a sophisticated, modern enterprise that remains grounded in those old school ideals. We believe in the value of a human voice, dynamic customer service, and going the extra mile for you and your clients. From rotary dials, to switchboards, to the latest digital innovations, the technology may have changed over the past 70 years, but one thing never does - the humans. Through it all, Hastings Humans has delivered outstanding live phone answering service and contact center services to businesses of all sizes.

If almost 70 years of acclaim doesn’t say it all, here’s how to tell the Hastings Humans from the imitators:

  • “Most of my clients believe my one man operation is a big company. The feedback I get from my clients about the call center is great AND I don’t have to answer the phones! I’ve been working with Hastings for a year and they are one of the few contractors that are key to my success and peace of mind.”

    – Aaron Calhoun

  • “Our phone lines are our life line. Hastings has made our entire operation more efficient by providing all the information for our staff to follow up on. Bookings are great, we aren’t losing business through the cracks, and the customers talk to a live person. Business is up over 30%. Thank you, Hastings!”

    – Mickey Poole
