Smith.ai is proud to announce outbound calling as part of every standard paid plan. We will now gladly make outbound calls to your existing clientele and affiliated businesses on your behalf, at no additional cost.
Let’s face it, as a professional, your days are already jammed with appointments, deadlines, and other obligations. Making appointment reminder calls, or confirming that paperwork has been received can take up precious minutes of your day. Let your receptionists work for you by taking these tasks off your daily to-do list. Your receptionists will contact your clients or business partners to pass along information or even reschedule appointments.
Let's say you realize on Tuesday morning that you've double-booked your clients for an afternoon slot. You can have your Smith.ai receptionists contact your client and reschedule or pass along any information you would like. You will receive a call summary from the outbound call with all of the information, just like you receive with your inbound calls.
Many of our clients are already taking advantage of this great feature and have found it to be incredibly useful.
“This is a great service and takes important, but tedious tasks off my plate and frees up valuable time. As I grow my business, I'm getting more comfortable outsourcing, which is critical to stay sane. Smith.ai is outsourcing at it's finest!!” -G.B.
Smith.ai’s outbound calling feature isn’t just for appointment reschedules. Your receptionists can also make calls to refer your clients to a business partner, confirm appointment times, and pass along important information (such as court dates or times). They can even do client outreach (except for marketing purposes; Smith.ai does not offer cold-calling and the like).
It's a great new feature that adds a multitude of hands-off ways for you to get in contact with your clientele, and yet another way Smith.ai remains ahead of the curve.
How to utilize outbound calling
1. Email the support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Make sure your email contains all pertinent directions and information, such as the client's name and phone number, and the message to convey, e.g., meeting time changes, requests for information, or any other information you’d like your receptionists to provide.)
2. That's it. We'll handle the rest and will provide a description of the call via your call notes.
