Contactability
Contactability is really good for teams that are trying to branch out to an untapped market space. Especially those that are trying to disrupt the health insurance scene. This helps them get their foot in the door in the area and their name out in the community. The customer service representatives could be more responsive.

I think if you have a very large brokerage and can afford to pay for a fully customized set up then it may be worthwhile. I would make sure you have a dedicated support team, not an account manager. In my opinion, the account managers are worthless and will not respond most of the time. We are on our second account manager in 9 months of using the system and cannot get in touch with him. In my experience, the account managers have no knowledge of how the system works or how anyone in real estate would want it to work. Obviously, I can only say this for the two managers we have had so far. I would steer clear of this system unless you want to spend a few thousand a month for a system that, I feel, will impede your business rather than improve it.

Pros
Contactability
  • The software reporting system is really clean and works well and they are good at sending you leads.
  • Their customer service is also willing to work with you and they really tried to help me improve our ROI.
  • Since using Contactability our workflow is changing. We now only pick up the phone when someone is interested in our services. The prescreening is all handled and we have control over the flow, what is said. Even when we're out of the office we can log in from anywhere and see what's happening with our leads and those missed calls get scheduled for us automatically.

  • Not one thing!
  • It sends unwanted canned responses to potential clients that you haven't approved. You must figure out how to use it to make them stop. This was day 1.
  • If you like to learn using many many different videos to learn a product, then this maybe for you.

Cons
Contactability
  • Call the toll-free customer service number and you are transferred to a blank voicemail, with an electronic repeat of the phone number.
  • The software training videos were confusing to non technical users.
  • We encountered bugs with the use of Windows 10. Some of the futures were bugged.

  • Their support is good, but wait times can be long. They want you to use their chat, but then when you ask your question, it can be a several hour wait time between responses. The people are nice and resolve your issue. But I think chat is for quick back and forth communication, not something with a long delay. Also, you can only really do it effectively on your computer, not on your phone.
  • It's proving very tough to track leads from campaigns we are running ourselves. If your website converts a lead, it really just gives you the website source, and even that only some of the time. It would be great to create custom sources and have kvCORE track that traffic and lead via some sort of UTM tag or URL parameter.
  • Some of the load times aren't great. When I load up my database, it takes a while to actually display. Also, when a lead is claimed in a pond, you have to refresh to be able to contact them. Then once you add a campaign, you have to refresh again to see the tasks that fire. This is a bit clunky.
  • The app is great, but there is still some limited functionality. It would be great to access and claim leads from a pond on the mobile app. Also if you could get push notifications when new leads are added. Our time to lead sucks, and that's because kvCORE doesn't alert you super quickly.

It doesn't deserve a zero because you can access contacts and get reminders to contact them. In my experience, you can not use the system for proper communication with both prospects and their spouses.

I love kvCORE's support. Having the little chat feature in the bottom right of my screen the whole time I'm working takes away any stress or worry about using it. When I first started using it, I learned its features by clicking and trying things, and more than once I had to go into the chat support and ask how to undo or fix what I had done. I don't think I've ever waited more than 5 minutes to get a reply back and it being almost instant and right there on my screen allowed me to continue working and know immediately when my question had been answered.

Alternatives Considered
Contactability
Contactability does a pretty decent job as it is very user-friendly and puts us in contact with our prospective clients. What they could improve on that Insightly does well is training and support. This could be due to the size of the company or their prioritization of resources. Overall we enjoyed Contactability better than Insightly.

Konversion and BoomTown are the only two I have used. Both have their things to recommend. Since I used Konversion, using kvCORE was simpler and I was able to upload my contacts seamlessly. This made adopting a new system easier and less likely to have a gap in contacting customers.

Return on Investment
Contactability
  • We got our people to become more open minded in trying new software and exploring options for automation.
  • Users got discouraged when the software did not work as it was supposed to and customer service was not there too help.
  • Once used correctly, we did have a large increase in the number of new clients that our office handled.

  • Because I am an EXP agent, I receive kvCore for $50/month so I have a $1550/month positive over any non-EXP agent.
  • Great new lead follow up with automatic and realistic contact for a higher conversion rate that I couldn't do by myself.
