Customers increasingly want to engage with live chat rather than making a phone call, but for smaller businesses with low website volume, starting an outsourced chat plan needs to be immediately affordable. That’s why Smith.ai Live Chat starts at the low price of $140/month (after your 20-chat/14-day free trial) with no setup fee. And we use sophisticated AI technology to assist chat agents in providing excellent service to your web visitors and 100% focus on problem solving, lead qualification, and scheduling new new leads on your calendar.
AnswerConnect charges you a setup fee ($49.99) and their per-minute pricing can be confusing and unnecessarily expensive. Imagine you have a lead that’s fairly distracted on multiple browser tabs: They might take 30 seconds or a minute just to respond to one message. One or two lagging conversations a week could eat up your whole monthly minutes quota.
For predictable pricing, lower starting costs, and advanced AI technology, businesses prefer Smith.ai over AnswerConnect.
“Great customer care and functionality. I love using Smith.ai. They do such a great job in following instructions on how I'd like my cases handled. I especially love the fact that I get email transcripts of all chats. I have never had incorrect information obtained (contact info) from any potential clients by Smith.ai. They are very detail oriented!”
"Smith allows us to converse with website visitors and turn them into potential clients. They've made it easier for us to be there at all times, even when we're not. We've worked with other vendors in the past and have found Smith.ai among the easiest to use. They're very responsive, they communicate well, and serve as our front lines for client communications."
“Simple way to start a great client experience. There are a lot of Chat options available, but this was a no brainer for us because of our great experience with Smith.ai as a company. Everything they do is focused on simplicity. Stuff just works. They make everything easy and have focused on hiring great people, which is evident by the way they treat us as a customer and the people that they chat with on our behalf.”
“Love Smith.ai Chat! There is no way that I could staff a feature like that in house with my small business. Smith.ai makes the chat feature available around the clock. I am a lawyer and this feature is great for clients who are nervous or shy about making that initial phone call, or who are up thinking about the problem that they need help with outside of business hours. The Smith.ai Website Chat also integrates perfectly with my CRM/case management software. It has really been a boost to my business. I have tried other companies. Smith.ai is the best!”
