Starting costs with Gabbyville are high: With their Starter plan, you’ll pay for setup and over three times the price of Smith.ai’s Starter plan. Gabbyville’s free trial is only 7 days too, which is likely not enough to properly gauge your call volume and see how they’ll handle certain callers. Smith.ai starts you with 20 calls in 14 days. And with predictable per-call pricing, free setup, and a low starting cost for plans, you can start small then scale your usage easily (once you see the ROI benefits).
Smith.ai’s receptionists can do a lot in one call: We qualify leads, follow custom instructions, book appointments, accept secure payments for you, and intake new leads — 24/7. Gabbyville offers scheduling and intake, but without lead qualification a booked consult could waste even more of your time. And you could completely miss prospects who call in after-hours.
Gabbyville gives you a dedicated team of receptionists, but Smith.ai’s whole team is available to you. Instead of training our receptionists on your business, we use technology to personalize your calls leaving our receptionists 100% available to focus on providing professional and friendly service. Onboard with us one time for free, and your virtual receptionists will be trained forever.
For lower starting costs, a longer free trial, predictable pricing, CRM and billing software integrations, and tech-assisted professional receptionists, businesses prefer Smith.ai to Gabbyville.
“I rely on Smith.ai to handle all of my firm's calls. Their intake process integrates with my practice management software, which saves me time. Plus, their professionalism means I pay a fraction of the cost of an in-house receptionist without sacrificing quality. I recommend Smith.ai to every attorney I see.”
“Having someone professionally answer our phones is essential to operating a business. We engaged with Smith about 3 months ago and have been extremely pleased with the service they are providing us. They are very flexible and their integration with technology has functionally made a huge difference for us. I receive a SMS message and an email within seconds of a call with all pertinent information regarding the call. They ensure critical calls make it through to me and sales calls are screened. This makes my day much more productive and we get a professional service answering the phones.”
"Smith.ai has been a major hack into improving my business flow. Playing phone tag with potential clients and constantly getting interrupted with sales calls was so tiresome. Smith.ai has completely alleviated this problem. They screen all calls that come into my main office number so only critical calls get through to me, and they schedule appointments with potential clients after having carefully screened them through my intake process. I now save so much time and only have quality appointments booked. Less stress, more appointments. It's a total win!"
“Having real, live people answering the phone has made a huge difference in the volume of my practice, and I'm all about Smith.ai's technology-driven approach. I can focus on my clients without interruptions from sales calls and spammers, yet I remain in the loop when I'm in court or a meeting thanks to their text summaries. I love that Smith.ai manages my web chats now, too! They're one of the key reasons I was able to grow from a solopreneur to an 8 person team!”
“Smith.ai has been integral to my business at CMIT Solutions of Morristown. Their service was extremely easy to set up and they have been extremely professional with their customer care. Having a live-answer service handle all my incoming calls gives my business a level of professionalism that it was missing and allows me to easily prioritize all of my call-backs. I highly recommend Smith.ai to any business looking for a live-answer service.”
"As small business owners, it is very important to have a professional image with a quick response to our phone calls. We are at ease knowing that our clients are being greeted with a professional, friendly and upbeat voice when they call our office. The message taking is very clear, concise and effective, and allows our contact with our clients to be frictionless, effective and progressive. The service quality and superior communication skills of the Smith.ai team makes them a true extension of our office."
