I like that you can dial out so many leads and double the efficiency of the agent. The only thing that bothers me is sometimes, system down issue.

In my opinion, the most valuable characteristic of SPO is that by answering simple questions a very complex product can be configured; therefore the scope of delivery is defined very well. In addition, SPO has great flexibility to manage prices and costs. However, SPO is configurator of parts that allows incorporating basic design rules for their selection. SPO is not a optimised for developing complicated engineering design rules.

Usability
PhoneBurner
PhoneBurner as I said before, has an excellent graphical interface, super friendly, with menus that the user can easily find and program the calls. The layout is good, fast, and has little delay and errors. I really like the tool and from the beginning, I had no difficulty with the usability.

We selected PhoneBurner because it is very easy to integrate with Zoho CRM and if you have a silver plan, you can do a lot such as Sending SMS and unlimited calling, you can also record and drop voicemail, timezone calling is automatic. It is a good dialer to use if you are part of sales.

The previous product we used was developed by ourselves so my experience is very limited. I can say that having a software like SPO we can configure the product without any programming experience and this makes things faster and better. Moreover, I can say that MS Office compatibility is a strong point.

Return on Investment
PhoneBurner
  • [I believe] it has cost me a fortune in wasted time trying to make the Hubspot integration [work] (to no avail).
  • [I believe] if the Hubspot integration actually worked, we would probably get decent ROI from the speedier calling.
