ConnectLeader Team Dialer

Definitely well suited for sales teams looking to have a high number of conversations with prospects. It automates the dialing process with a very fluid integration with Salesforce. Because it dials a list of prospects, the connects aren't as controllable as they would be with a one-off dialing tool. So it's worth outlining what type of solution is best suited for who is being targeted.

It is great for a small company like mine because it's allows for easy scalability - very easy to do. Allows ease of hiring just the number of people that we need from all over the country, so we get the very best at the least cost. We've actually used it to hire internationally - again we can watch the results and address issues immediately - give immediate coaching to improve our results for our clients.
I love the ability to watch calling campaigns as they unfold. Sometimes there are issues that arise which need immediate attention from both my client and myself. Our clients love that we can give detailed feedback to correct a situation or address an issue. Clients are impressed at the level of support we provide to ensure their overall successful campaigns!

Pros

ConnectLeader Team Dialer

  • Allows us to have a high number of conversations that can be turned into meetings.
  • Helps ease the pain of low connection rates.
  • They have an awesome customer support team that responds quickly and thoroughly.

  • One of my favorite features is the ability to customize routing. Quite often a caller is told by a prospect to call back at a certain date and time, the caller can set that and the record will pop up in the front of the database on that date and time letting you know that you have a call to make.
  • We also send out information on behalf of our clients to prospects, which we do directly out of VanillaSoft. After the information is emailed the system will actually let us know when it was opened and moved that prospect record to the front of the database to be a priority in call rotation.
  • I also love that we were able to customize it so that the callers have everything they need to see right in front of them. We have a area that has the prospects information, name and address, then an area that has required information fields with questions the caller needs to ask and place answers in the appropriate fields, then we have an area with a notepad, an area to access the calendar, and an area that gives the caller all the previous activity on the record.
  • These are considered strengths for us as all of these examples make my job and the callers job much easier and saves us a ton of time and money.

Cons

ConnectLeader Team Dialer

  • The user interface could be a little cleaner/more organized.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

VanillaSoft

  • Duplicate accounts: there should be a way to merge duplicates so multiple salespeople are not calling on the same prospects.
  • Calendar is a little cumbersome.
  • When searching for contact and it's not the correct project name, we should be able to arrow back and it should show the list again without having to search all over again.

Response time was acceptable for the relatively few problems any of our users may have encountered. Fortunately, such occasions were rare.

Alternatives Considered

ConnectLeader Team Dialer

We selected ConnectLeader because we were experiencing several tech issues with our previous tool and we didn't like how their customer support team handled the communication from their end. We've appreciated the communication from ConnectLeader when there are updates or have noticed issues, they've been proactive and responsive depending on what we're experiencing.

It is easy to use and access. It gives us all the tools and information that we need to have a productive work day. By giving us everything we need we therefore don't have to use more than one application throughout the work day which makes it a lot simpler

  • VanillaSoft has drastically reduced my expenses associated with prospecting (fuel, car maintenance, etc.).
  • I was able to make a profit during the COVID shutdown, in a time where I would have continued to have overhead and no income whatsoever.
  • I made 6 appointments today where generally I would have made 6 appointments in a week.
