For Insurance agencies, small practices, small call centers, anyone that need call forwarding or work with his number remotely while away from office. I can't list all the things I'm gaining as a Fonality customer. From the installation process, the configuration phase with the technicians, the account managers, every Fonality employee was professional and savvy. I was a contact center specialist for more than 10 years and I can tell you that I've never been this happy with a service! Never! Probably if you need a more complex solution and you have an enterprise level company having your own hardware gives you more control over your calls and how to manage them. But again, I think that Fonality can cover most scenarios without the need of a huge investment.

Zoho CRM

Well suited for basic sales and pipeline management. Not appropriate if those leads or prospects need to be transferred into other organizations or companies. Good to use on more individualized sales teams, but not particularly great when it comes to collaborations. Limited tagging and chatting options for collaborative sales.If you are planning to work a pipeline to generate sales and are not in need of a great deal of communication between employees, this will be great for you.

Pros

NetFortris (formerly Fonality)

  • From an administrator's perspective, Fonality makes administering the company's phone system easy. Configuration menus and setup options are logically structured and easy to understand.
  • Technical support has been very good. Early on in our deployment, we had some nagging voice quality issues which were network related. Fonality provided exceptional support even though it was not technically their issue. It is important to know ahead of time how well your vendors work with other vendors for integrated services like a VOIP telephone system. Fonality support demonstrated their patience and perseverance in helping us resolve our issues.
  • Although we don't use remote office capabilities much, the ability to set up phones on the system in remote locations has been a significant help to several of our departments.

Zoho CRM

  • Zoho CRM has an incredible amount of features, from tagging contacts to social media integration (LinkedIn, Facebook, etc) and email capabilities.
  • Zoho CRM is very customizable. The entire look and feel of each page and account can be customized to fit your organization's needs.
  • Zoho CRM is just one of the products offered under Zoho's suite of software products. It easily integrates with other enterprise software like Zoho Project Management and Zoho email.

Cons

NetFortris (formerly Fonality)

  • The softphone options have not proven particularly reliable. The HUDweb application has some potential as far as a visual tool, but has just proven way too unreliable for everyday use. Would not recommend it for use. With that being said, a new softphone application is to be released on 12/16/16, so that may render use of HUDweb obsolete. Am hopeful the dedicated softphone application will prove worthy.
  • HUD Mobile is also less than an ideal solution. Not sure if the mobile OS is to blame for some of the disappointment, but having to run the mobile application in the foreground in order to receive calls is not really practical. Also, the design of the application is not very efficient as it's not obvious immediately how to get to the keypad and direct dialing an extension is not working for us. It does however make calls and can work, but it's more of a hassle than it's really worth. My remote sales team just uses their carrier minutes for calls.
  • The click to call feature while it has worked for us in the past, it has also caused issues with adding extra characters and logos in random areas of email messages, so our users have pretty much turned that feature off.

Zoho CRM

  • I do wish it was a bit "smarter" that it could sense duplicate entries and simply update fields when it recognizes a dupe.
  • I wish it had an easier integration with our marketing platform, Hubspot.
  • I wish there was a way to mass update information, via spreadsheet upload, WITHOUT having the Zoho ID.

We've already made a deep investment in the system hardware. We wouldn't be interested in another system at this point! And by the look of my colleagues faces when they see the HUD, I don't think we'd want to switch to a system that would limit us or take away any of these features! We may look at putting the server in the cloud, should internet outages prove to be such a common issue that it is preventing our other locations from functioning smoothly

We went through an exhaustive process doing this evaluation and in the process took the time to really understand the objectives and requirements of all groups within the organization. Now that the system is in place it needs to be used and refined over a long period to time in order to get the full value. As a result you need to consider the long-term and renewal knowing that the system will get better the more you use it.

Usability

NetFortris (formerly Fonality) 7.6
Based on 8 answers
Overall excellent usability, with a few adjustments I feel this is the absolute best VoIP system out there. Just a clarification on the licences and limit the interface to reflect what licence we have. There should be a back or redunancy feature to Fonality Server, If there was a mistake we should be able to resort back to a usable state asap. Before implementing changes to the server, there should be a trial or sample of the changes to make sure it behaves as intended before effecting customer experience. It would be nice to have a demo version of Fonality interface so possible clients can truly evauluate the system. Because of the quality, it would have made it easier to convince the owners to make the transition sooner

Support was great. Then all of a sudden I had to talk to my account rep that never contacted me. I had fonality for 4 years and now there is an account rep that is trying to charge me for support and services. Previously I could add phones as needed without a fee for support and activation.

Training was excellent, but most of what they had was webinars and not real world situation for our company's need. It would be better to have them remote in my local computer and test my system using inbound / outbound calls. This would have made it easier to learn and more relevant

Everything from the installation to the implementation has been great with Fonality, there is a lot of freedom to how the system will operate but the freedom comes at a cost of more technical experience to make sure it is configured correctly. The staff is very helpful can will make sure that the system is setup correctly and work perfectly.

The CRM is only as good as the data you put into it. Spend the time up-front to clean up your old data sources prior to importing them into Zoho

We selected Fonality for ease of use and the HUD portal. One of the partners in the business has used Fonality in the past and had great confidence in it's success for this new endeavor. It has proven to be successful thus far and I hope to be able to update this review in a year's time with continued excellent service!

Zoho CRM

I tried a lot of different software trying to find the one that gave me everything, which I found within ZOHO. It wasn't the CRM that sold me on ZOHO, it was the Subscriptions and it's integration within CRM that sold me on ZOHO. I'm glad I picked it, the CRM has been easy to adapt to and easy for the boss to get the reports out he wants.

Return on Investment

NetFortris (formerly Fonality)

  • Due to the better call quality over our last provider, it's eliminated a lot of frustration of our customers and having to call them back from our cell phones. This has helped us keep our sanity.
  • The ability to pull up a customer record in our CRM and see customer call activity has been huge. I can see which customers call repeatedly and also use it to help track billable remote support.
  • Being able to see the status of a customer ticket AS they're calling, before we even answer the phone has been huge. I can have a customers ticket open by the time I answer the phone and be one step ahead. This has saved us a lot of time.
Joseph Bettencourt | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho CRM

  • The organization which is helping our sales team not miss a beat! We are following up without having to dig for information etc.
  • We close more sales when we have a clear activity list and can assess leads etc but using the scoring options
  • We are able to get our work done in a user-friendly environment. It helps the day run much smoother.
