Default Need A Phone Greeting Device

I have a small 4 man contracting business that I run from my home.
Of the two phone lines coming into the house, one is used only for business (in & out calls), while the other is our private personal line with blocked call id that I intermittently use for outgoing business calls.

My incoming business calls are answered directly, or just get picked up by the businesses answering machine.

I dont wish to have calls just screened over by a standard answering machine, having callers wait for the beep, and then I pick up.

I am looking for a device that will allow calls to be directed to a pre-recorded greeting prior to ringing though to my phone line. The greeting would be state something like, "Thanks for calling XYZ. Please wait while we attempt to connect you to a representative. While we are forcing you to wait, let me tell why we are the best and why you should use us our company."

At that point a message could be left if no one is available to take the call.

The device doesnt have to be a one that would direct calls to a specific extension or line.
I am hoping it will also help weed out some computerized telemarketing.
