Frankly if this is all you need a decent phone system will do this
without you needing to hire an outsourcing company.
Most decent PBX systems will redirect to a mobile after hours or better
yet straight to an answering machine that will email a voicemail message
to an engineer.
That way they can decide if the message is important enough to bother
doing anything about, and frankly if you offer an on call service you
should be charging enough that it deters unwanted callers from ringing
you in the middle of the night anyway.
This is why we don't advertise 24/7 support as idiots randomly spam the
ticket system with rubbish which you then need to delete anyway.
We offer support for critical issues on weekends for existing customers
Your PBX also should have a decent blacklist function for telemarketers.
