Signpost answers calls and book appointments while offers a full range of virtual receptionist services.’s per-call pricing means your monthly bill is based on call volume, not call length. That way, your monthly costs are predictable and affordable. Signpost’s per-minute pricing can be hard to predict and hard to control. An average call lasts six minutes, so for an average call with Signpost, you’ll pay at least $15.54 per call. Plus, they bill an extra 60 seconds on every call to “allow the receptionist to send follow-up notifications.” Those costs add up quickly over the course of a month. 

With, you get more bang for your buck. We use technology to improve the customer experience. Our AI automatically blocks spam, robocalls, and sales calls — at no additional charge — and provides detailed call summaries for your convenience. Our AI also guides our agent conversations so they can respond to customer inquiries quickly and naturally.
