Broadvoice

Having the Broadvoice B-system came thru for us when the internet went down at our location. We were able to login into the Broadvoice systems from our phones and forward all calls to our cell phones. This allowed our contact with our customers to go interrupted. This is seen as a great advantage to our company so we could continue business and keep our customers happy.

If you need to find a test candidate for your client quickly, this is one of the best ways. Pull yourself a hot list of a couple hundred potential candidates and load them in to CallFire. Then get ready to hit about 50-60 calls per hour. You should have a great test candidate for your client in about 24 hours! It's amazing how quickly you can show your clients the true speed of your company.

Pros

Broadvoice

  • The ease of call transfer.
  • Ability to have calls forwarded through the b-hive app keeps people from being tied to their desk phone.
  • Great customer service.
  • Integration with Salesforce.

CallFire

  • CallFire provides detailed analytics that show what/when callers select within the phone system
  • The text message broadcast feature is a game changer. This allows a company to dispatch text campaigns with specific calls-to-action, with tracking analytics.
  • The voice broadcast feature allows a mass automated message to be sent to client phones. This saves a lot of time when the same notification needs to go out to multiple clients.

Cons

Broadvoice

  • Make B-Hive easer to navigate.
  • Faxing features could use more work.
  • Improve network through the phone. Have issues when the phone has problems; the computer can't connect to the network when it's going through it.

CallFire

  • The services are easy to use and robust, but there is room for improvement. Unfortunately, not much has changed over the last 2 years of use. There haven't been any new features or innovations in that time.
  • API integration and automation is not easy for most folks to jump into and there is very little technical support or documentation to take advantage of such features.
  • The standard reports are generally sufficient, but there isn't any customization or intelligence available.

At first, it seemed "daunting" to use but that is very much the same with a lot of things that are new. Broadvoice supplies great Quick Sheets to main topics, such as Feature Codes, Flow Charts, User Guides, which are easy to read and follow. Once it is used often, it is easy to understand, follow, and make changes to fit your company

Alternatives Considered

Broadvoice

This has really been our first experience using an app such as b-hive organization-wide for our phone system, so I don't have much to stack up against it. I just really appreciate the ease of using our original phone system via this app without having to go to some other product/service.

CallFire has a pricing structure that is attractive to us as a small business. The "pay as you use" options helps us keep our overhead low, especially with so many softwares already in our tech stack. It's a tremendous value for the cost!

Return on Investment

Broadvoice

  • The cost per user is less than our previous provider.
  • The flexibility that VOIP provides allows for easy in opening different locations and staying connected.
  • Integration with Salesforce will be a huge step forward for our current CRM.

CallFire

  • I sent out a broadcast message pretty deep in our data base, well three years out. I had one customer come in and buy thanking me for contacting her.
  • Our holiday season was up 35% over last year, this year we used CallFire more than we did in the past.
