Smith.ai's 24/7 virtual receptionist service has a far more affordable starting price than Gabbyville. We give you a 14-day (20 call) free trial and then plans start as low as $140/month. Since there are no setup or hidden fees, you can start with us at only $140 for 8 weeks total. Gabbyville only gives you a 7-day free-trial. After that you will pay a $99 setup fee plus at least $229 for their cheapest monthly plan, totaling $328 for only 5 weeks.
Smith.ai charges flat per-call rates, resulting in lower prices and simpler billing for qualified leads and intake. And at Smith.ai, we are acutely focused on personalized answering and high-quality reception. Using our custom, proprietary software, our virtual receptionists have the information about your business in front of them when they receive your call. They can qualify leads, answer basic questions, route calls, fill out intake forms, schedule appointments, take payments, and more. The best part is, since our fees are per-call, you never have to worry about how much time we’re spending offering this high-level service.
Per-call pricing means predictable monthly expenses and easily calculated ROI.
Gabbyville answers phones. Smith.ai answers, qualifies, and secures leads based on your custom (and often complex) criteria.
Try you for two rings, then fall back on us? Transfer based on your schedule? Route new leads to your CRM? It's easy with Smith.ai.
As we discussed, the startup price at Smith.ai is significantly lower: Smith.ai plans start at $140 whereas Gabbyville plans start at $229, plus a one-time $99 setup fee. It can be difficult to compare seconds to calls without predicting exactly how long each of your calls will take, but we believe that client support and lead qualification and intake shouldn’t be on a schedule. That’s why we charge per call. Our virtual receptionists take the time to focus on your customers and have real conversations, without adding higher costs.
Gabbyville will tout a dedicated team of receptionists for your business, but at Smith.ai, all of our receptionists are on your team. Our proprietary software allows every one of our receptionists to offer the same personalized, high-quality experience every single time we answer your call. Imagine onboarding with us one time (for free), and never having to train a new receptionist again. And if something changes on your end, just call, text, or email us to let us know and the next receptionist who takes your call will have your updated info.
Also, distributing calls to our entire team makes us far more flexible than Gabbyville’s small, dedicated team. Launch a new marketing campaign? We can instantly handle the extra volume — we don't need any heads up or extra time to train a new receptionist to handle calls on your account.
Gabbyville will send you appointment reminders. Smith.ai integrates with multiple calendar tools and CRM platforms instead, because we believe in using technology to supplement and improve the jobs humans do best. Once we book your appointment, we trust your software to send you reminders, and you don’t need to pay us to do a machine’s job. At Smith.ai, we aim to be an upgrade to the traditional virtual receptionist — backed by machine intelligence. What do we do best? Collect information and deliver assistance, with a friendly voice.
Both Smith.ai and Gabbyville have Spanish-speaking receptionists available, but it’s worth mentioning since there are 41 million native Spanish speakers in the United States. That's a big potential client base.
