Cloudtalk is by far the best value-for-price software out there for call center solutions. Packed with features, very accessible, kind and accessible customer support, and cheap, especially when compared with their competitors for the same range of features. Easy entry-level software, especially if you're a startup that doesn't want to make big initial commitments but needs a solution that scales with the business.

Outbound dialing is where it excels. It's especially good with larger teams of reps. Organizing through campaigns and seek lists is very powerful once you understand how to use it. There is definitely a learning curve with seek lists (I've spent tons of time on the phone with their support staff) but once you understand it the possibilities are endless. You can sort which leads show up by a variety of filters. Even with a list of 10,000+ leads and 5 reps calling on it, you can ensure no leads show up in two reps lists, the reps are calling specific territories, and even skipping leads that are likely on their lunch break! One my of favorite tricks with seek lists and only calling people with titles like Director/VP/C-Level before 8:30am or after 5pm their time, when those people are more willing to pick up the phone. They also appreciate a sales rep who is putting in the extra time to call during those blocks.

  • Organizes your leads based on the parameters you set so you call the hottest leads first.
  • Connects with your phone so you can dial from your computer without having to enter the numbers every time.
  • It also allows you to record the notes from the call right there and they get added to the completed task in Salesforce.

Cons
CloudTalk.io
  • A lot of features are still missing, some of which are pretty basic like being able to select multiple filters instead of one.
  • Desktop app has had some instability issue.
  • IVR needs to be self-recorded which can lead to a lower quality.

  • No call parking features for inbound calls, if on a call through the dialer, one cannot place that call on hold to take the second call.
  • All notes are lost when another inbound call comes in, whether or not you accept that call.

CloudTalk is super easy to use and has a great quality. It helps to communicate with the clients easily and we can feel that the sound quality is high, while speaking to the client and while listening to the recordings. This is for our department essential in our day to day work.

I like that it is simple, functional and I can rely on it to help me get my work done everyday. My job became much harder without InsideSales.com. The new CRM I am using has confusing features and too much going on sometimes. There are so many fields and functions that I find unnecessary--what sucks is when I look at my screen at all these empty fields, it makes me feel incomplete. With InsideSales.com, I knew what to put in every box and why it would be important. I could put it in once and whether it was my manager, case admin or data analyst or me, we all knew where to find it. With our new system, I find myself having to do more input and data entry for other people to benefit--no longer a "one shot, one kill" deal.

They are skilled, experienced, and anytime I need something and contact the support time, I get the right person who understands my needs and reacts to them accordingly. So far I was only pleasantly surprised by the level of support these guys provide and coming from a customer service oriented background myself, I can only say keep it up guys, you are doing a fantastic job!

It was a gamble if I'm being honest, plus this is a very nuanced and intricate topic. We didn't necessarily substitute one for the other, it was a much needed state of affairs where we needed the call monitoring and agent tracking pros of CloudTalk more so than ever before.

I am actually not on the decision making side, but we used PowerDialer because of the easy to use integration with our CRM with Salesforce. Having these two tools in tandem was a great platform for us to do prospecting.

  • For a similar price it is not necessary to manage so many cell phone accounts
  • Unlike basic telephony. It is possible to have more control of the interactions with our clients.
  • For administrators it allows better control of commercial actions or the corresponding area for communication issues
