Moneypenny’s virtual receptionists answer calls and take messages, but they don’t really take work off your plate. You’ll end your day with a list of messages to follow up on, and any new leads who called have likely moved on to other options. Smith.ai’s receptionists follow your custom instructions, qualify leads, book appointments, set up conference calls, accept payments for you, and can even make calls on your behalf. Your Smith.ai receptionists will communicate effectively with your clients and have newly qualified leads booked on your calendar, so you can get down to uninterrupted, productive work.
Smith.ai and Moneypenny both charge per call. However, Moneypenny requires you to contact them for the monthly fees or overage costs based on your estimated call volume. With Smith.ai, we feel strongly about transparent pricing and list everything on our website. Overage costs may differ from business to business with Moneypenny.
When it comes to technology, both Smith.ai and Moneypenny have an online portal. But Smith.ai also integrates with over 30 CRMs, marketing platforms, calendars, billing systems, and intake forms. Furthermore, our AI platform searches for zip codes, connects to you via SMS and Slack, and is even a Zapier trigger (for our more tech-savvy users).
For quality leads booked on your calendar, integrated payments, better new client capturing, transparent pricing, free setup, no contracts, a free first CRM integration, and AI-backed friendly receptionists, businesses prefer Smith.ai to Moneypenny.
“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."
