JMS Elite is a lead generation service while Smith.ai offers campaign-based sales development.

JMS Elite is a sales vendor that serves five select industries: healthcare, IT, manufacturing, finance, and retail. Smith.ai supports businesses of all types β€” offering comprehensive sales development. Our North America-based SDRs perform targeted outreach to meet your most important business objectives β€” whether that’s lead follow-ups, lead screening, event invitations, or appointment setting. Our team is available 24/7 to reach contacts at the most opportune times. JMS Elite is only available from 8 AM to 8 PM EST.Β 

All Smith.ai campaigns come with cadences of up to five calls and include follow-up emails and texts to improve conversion rates. Our bundled solutions include CRM integration, appointment setting, and business caller ID β€” at no extra cost. We also offer 24/7 inbound coverage. Our virtual receptionists are available to add to any Outreach Campaign plan for just $285 per month. We even offer 24/7 live chat so leads visiting your website after receiving our outreach are greeted and engaged immediately. We handle the entire β€œfrontline” of your lead flow so you never need to worry about in-house coverage. This comprehensive 360-degree sales coverage is not something JMS Elite can provide.

We operate with full transparency β€” from pricing to features β€” to ensure your investment makes the biggest impact. Included in every plan is white-glove setup, client onboarding, call messaging crafted to specifically achieve your objective, and a dedicated account manager. We make sure your call cadence and timing of calls are based on your target audience and what would lead to the best conversion rates.

Plans start at just $12 per contact, with a minimum of only 50 leads. Our per-contact pricing model means your monthly costs are based on how many leads you’d like us to reach on your behalf β€” making it both predictable and affordable. We can work off your supplied lists, or supply targeted leads upon request for cold calling for a low cost of $1 per lead. This includes targeting strategy and research, along with sample list data so you have confidence the leads meet your specific criteria.

JMS Elite’s dashboard helps you measure, but Smith.ai’s is richer β€” providing full visibility into your campaign results. You can monitor real-time statuses, attempts we’ve made, and call outcomes per contact. That way, you know exactly what happened on every call. And, with access to detailed call summaries, audio recordings, and searchable transcripts, you have all the tools you need to analyze your campaign’s performance and the ROI of your investment.

Comparing technology, Smith.ai integrates with over 5,000 CRMs, marketing platforms, calendars, billing systems, and form software, giving us the capability to take payments, schedule appointments directly on your calendar, and complete new-client intake. We make sure our systems are seamlessly connected so you can send leads directly to us for improved speed to lead, plus better visibility into the results of your campaigns.

For skilled North America-based SDRs, robust CRM integrations, and 24/7 comprehensive coverage, Smith.ai is the superior choice over JMS Elite.

Crushing sales quotas
Before Smith.ai, I’d have to monitor the lead inbox. Now, Smith.ai is making the outbound call as soon as the lead comes in. They vet it for me and I get to talk to only qualified leads. We essentially have a team of intake people who know our product and work directly for us.
