Get Early Access to Keypad, the New Cloud Phone System from Smith.ai

As of February 8, 2020, we are no longer accepting new Keypad accounts. Please stay tuned for updates on alternative solutions.

Since 2015, Smith.ai has gained fame for delivering a superior call answering service, powered by hospitality-driven, North America-based live receptionists. We’re the friendly voices answering your clients’ calls, qualifying your leads, scheduling your appointments, and handling all those other persnickety phone tasks that would otherwise cannibalize your time (and lower your hourly pay rate).

Until now, your only option has been to use our virtual receptionist services on top of your existing business phone system — Google Voice, RingCentral, Vonage, 8x8, Grasshopper, or one of the many other business communication behemoths that are centralizing your calls.

As your virtual receptionists, we’ve seen the shortcomings of these systems firsthand. Here are a few examples of issues we’ve seen and heard:



  • Vonage and 8x8 can delay calls for up to eight rings (!) on the caller’s side before your phone actually rings. This is unacceptable.



  • You use Google Voice and your business partner uses Skype. Clients don’t know which number to call.



  • Grasshopper’s billing you for add-ons you never requested (or needed), or for minutes you expected to be counted in your “unlimited” plan.



  • Are calls coming from your Google search ads or the podcast you sponsored? You need to know.



  • Google Voice may be free, but if you want a nationwide number, it’s useless.
