There is very little information on pricing and packaging for VSA Prospecting customers. If you want transparent pricing, Smith.ai has it. Our per-contact pricing is advertised clearly on our website, which means your monthly costs will be based on how many contacts you’d like us to reach out to on your behalf — it’s as simple as that.
VSA offers many features, but 24/7/365 coverage isn’t one of them — this is standard for Smith.ai customers. It doesn't matter what time zone your customers (or our agents) are in, your leads will be reached in a timely manner. Not only are our agents available around-the-clock, but they’re all North America-based and work from quiet home offices, as well, so they sound like they’re in-house. Plus, since we're fully remote, our hiring practices focus on skill, not location. You can rest assured your leads are in good hands with Smith.ai.
VSA Prospecting’s best feature is the list building. Smith.ai doesn’t provide leads, but we do partner with multiple sources that can source leads inexpensively. Already have leads? Even better. We specialize in campaign strategy and analysis, and what’s more, we offer it simply, actionable, and with less fuss. What's better: Long strategic planning or short strategy session with quick game plan, take action, learn, and refine? We feel the latter delivers results for SMBs and midmarket far more efficiently and effectively in the short and mid term. In the long run, as they say, we're all dead!
VSA Prospecting doesn’t provide any kind of business solutions many SMBs need, like payment collection or call routing. Smith.ai’s services don’t start and end with sales support. Our professionals are not only experienced in sales enablement, but have the capacity to become a true extension of your office: We can make outbound calls on your behalf and 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.
Sure, both VSA Prospecting and Smith.ai have dashboards that allow you to manage outreach efforts digitally, but Smith.ai’s dashboard goes above and beyond to give you full-visibility into your campaign’s success. We capture key data on the caller, including the time of the call, call attempt number, from phone number, lead status — even action taken. That way, you know exactly what happened during and after every call. And with access to detailed call summaries as well as audio recordings and searchable transcripts of every call, the proof is in the pudding.
As far as technology is concerned, VSA Prospecting fails to compare to Smith.ai. We play well with over 5,000 CRMs, marketing platforms, calendars, billing systems, and intake forms. Furthermore, our AI platform connects to you via SMS, Slack, and Zapier. We even have an open API (for our more tech-savvy users).
For growth-minded business owners who care about price transparency, seamless integrations, and robust customizations that deliver the experience of in-house sales development reps, Smith.ai is the superior choice for your 24/7 Sales Outreach partner, over VSA Prospecting.
