For our support queue overflow and if no-one's in the office, we use Servcorp to answer our 0800.  They answer with our company name, and can redirect the call or take a message based on a whole stack of rules we've given them.  A stock standard voicemail system won't work as we still want the call answered by a human.

Having just received their last rather large bill, I'm keen to explore some alternatives.  Must be based in NZ. 

Suggestions?

My old boss runs a small business and uses a similar service that you described.  He seems quite happy with them.  I've flicked him an email asking for the name, so I'll let you know soon. :)

Quite a few of our clients use these guys:

They all seem happy with the service.
They are based in Whangarei.

haha not helpful to your OP, but in a previous role we used Servecorp and were always looking forward to the next invoice to see what amazingly excessive charges they could come up with this time around :D

I actually find Regus charge considerably less than Servcorp. I got quotes from both of them for office space in the CBD (Brisbane) and Regus charged a whopping four times less than Servcorp.
