Simply Contact is more of a pricey call center service. Smith.ai is a comprehensive outbound sales support option for businesses on a budget.

Starting at the steep price of $1,000, Simply Contact is going to wind up costing you an arm and a leg for sales support. Smith.ai’s minimum is less than half that price. Starting at just $400 per month, you get an entire team of dedicated SDRs working around-the-clock to propel your sales. We charge per-call, so your monthly costs will be based on how many calls you’d like us to make on your behalf. Pricing with Smith.ai is always guaranteed to be predictable, transparent, and affordable.


Sure, Simply Contact does offer some outbound campaign strategy and analysis features, but Smith.ai puts the control of your campaigns back in your hands. Our Outreach Campaigns feature enables our live agents to effectively follow-up with potential clients, set appointments with prospective clients, re-engage previously unresponsive leads, and so much more. We even offer real-time performance analytics so it’s easy for you to follow your campaigns’ progress while remaining hands-off.


And while Simply Contact is more focused on providing general call center services, Smith.ai is dedicated to cultivating long-lasting connections with your leads. Whether it's a one-time or a six-part call sequence to hundreds of webinar registrants with the aim of scheduling sales demos, we’ve got you covered. Smith.ai gives you all the tools you need to build efficient campaigns with just a single service provider. 


Simply Contact is limited in what they can do for your business. Sure, they can make outbound calls, but they don’t advertise many useful features, like appointment setting or payment collection, on their site. Smith.ai’s services don’t stop at high-quality sales support. Our live agents can become a true extension of your office: Not only can we make outbound calls on your behalf, but we can also be the staff who receives call-backs and inbound calls from leads and clients with our Virtual Receptionist plans. We provide comprehensive coverage so you can address all your business needs under one roof.


When it comes to technology, Smith.ai and Simply Contact both have online portals where you can track calls, note key performance metrics, and more, but as far as integrations goes, Smith.ai has the advantage. We play well with over 30 CRMs, marketing platforms, calendars, billing systems, and intake forms. Furthermore, our AI platform connects to you via SMS and Slack and is even a Zapier trigger (for our more tech-savvy users). 


On top of all of that, Simply Contact can’t even guarantee your calls will be handled by North America-based SDRs, but Smith.ai sure can. We only hire bright and friendly agents who sound just like in-house, who speak clear American English, and who’re familiar with all the language nuances that you'd expect from North America-based agents, but you don't get with agents abroad, who speak English in a slightly different way that most leads and clients pick up on. With Smith.ai, there's never any indication the agent isn't right there with you in your office, sounding like they fit right in.

For higher quality outreach campaigns, far more affordable pricing, highly capable agents, robust CRM integrations, and 24/7 North America-based professionals, growth-oriented businesses prefer Smith.ai to Simply Contact.
