Ring Savvy has limited capabilities compared to Smith.ai. Our award-winning virtual receptionists customized their support to fit your needs.

Beware: If you’re looking for transparent pricing, Ring Savvy might not be your best bet. You’ll have to reach out to them directly for a custom quote. Ring Savvy does note that their pricing is per minute, not per call, so when you inevitably receive a chatty caller, it might just break the bank. And with per minute calling, agents might take longer to answer your callers’ questions. Smith.ai’s pricing is much more transparent up front: We only charge per-call, not per minute, so your monthly costs will be based on your call quota. That way, you won’t be stuck with a hefty bill for a lengthy call and you can rest assured that you’ll have access to dozens of professional agents ready to uphold the quality of all your calls. 

Ring Savvy acts more like a call center. They can answer calls, take messages, book appointments, but they don’t seem to have the capability to handle much more than that. Smith.ai’s virtual receptionists do so much more for your business. We become a true extension of your office: answering calls with custom greetings, qualifying and screening leads, booking appointments, taking payments, making outgoing calls if you need, the list goes on!

When it comes to technology, Ring Savvy fails in comparison to Smith.ai. Ring Savvy doesn’t advertise any online portal or dashboards, and as far as integrations go, Smith.ai takes the lead. We play well with over 30 CRMs, marketing platforms, calendars, billing systems, and intake forms. Furthermore, our AI-powered platform searches for zip codes, connects to you via SMS and Slack, and is even a Zapier trigger (for our more tech-savvy users).

While Ring Savvy doesn’t advertise any call tracking or reporting capabilities, Smith.ai’s Call Intelligence feature offers valuable insight into your callers through detailed call analysis and reporting. We track key data, like caller type (e.g., new lead, existing client, spam), time of the call, priority, and even disposition, to give you insight into the actions taken on your calls. Add in comprehensive customization options like complex call routing, plus Outreach Campaigns for follow-up with leads and clients, and it’s clear to see that Ring Savvy can’t help you get more out of your communication efforts the way Smith.ai can.

On top of that, Ring Savvy’s receptionists are based solely out of their call center location in New York. This means you’ll not only be limited to receptionists working on the East Coast time-zone, but you’ll also only have access to a finite amount of receptionists at one time. Smith.ai, on the other hand, has hundreds of virtual receptionists working from all over North America. And our agents work from quiet home offices, so your callers won’t get any of that distracting background noise like they would from a call center. Plus, Smith.ai’s virtual receptionists don’t rely on scripts the way Ring Savvy’s receptionists do. We take the time to learn how you would like your calls to be handled, striving to build genuine connections with each of our callers.

For more qualified leads, predictable pricing, technology-backed receptionists, custom plans, CRM and intake integrations, and a call tracking dashboard, businesses prefer Smith.ai to Ring Savvy.

What our customers are saying

“I rely on Smith.ai to handle all of my firm's calls. Their intake process integrates with my practice management software, which saves me time. Plus, their professionalism means I pay a fraction of the cost of an in-house receptionist without sacrificing quality. I recommend Smith.ai to every attorney I see.”
REGINA EDWARDS
“Having someone professionally answer our phones is essential to operating a business. We engaged with Smith about 3 months ago and have been extremely pleased with the service they are providing us. They are very flexible and their integration with technology has functionally made a huge difference for us. I receive a SMS message and an email within seconds of a call with all pertinent information regarding the call. They ensure critical calls make it through to me and sales calls are screened. This makes my day much more productive and we get a professional service answering the phones.”
"Smith.ai has been a major hack into improving my business flow. Playing phone tag with potential clients and constantly getting interrupted with sales calls was so tiresome. Smith.ai has completely alleviated this problem. They screen all calls that come into my main office number so only critical calls get through to me, and they schedule appointments with potential clients after having carefully screened them through my intake process. I now save so much time and only have quality appointments booked. Less stress, more appointments. It's a total win!"
“Having real, live people answering the phone has made a huge difference in the volume of my practice, and I'm all about Smith.ai's technology-driven approach. I can focus on my clients without interruptions from sales calls and spammers, yet I remain in the loop when I'm in court or a meeting thanks to their text summaries. I love that Smith.ai manages my web chats now, too! They're one of the key reasons I was able to grow from a solopreneur to an 8 person team!
JUSTIE NICOL
“Smith.ai has been integral to my business at CMIT Solutions of Morristown. Their service was extremely easy to set up and they have been extremely professional with their customer care. Having a live-answer service handle all my incoming calls gives my business a level of professionalism that it was missing and allows me to easily prioritize all of my call-backs. I highly recommend Smith.ai to any business looking for a live-answer service.”
"As small business owners, it is very important to have a professional image with a quick response to our phone calls. We are at ease knowing that our clients are being greeted with a professional, friendly and upbeat voice when they call our office. The message taking is very clear, concise and effective, and allows our contact with our clients to be frictionless, effective and progressive. The service quality and superior communication skills of the Smith.ai team makes them a true extension of our office."
