Overall Satisfaction with GoTo Connect

GoToConnect is used as our agency VoiP phone & text platform. Prior to using GoToConnect we were using Google Voice for the agency, as we grew in employee count we needed ways to transfer calls, place calls on hold, and add callers to conference calls. With GoToConnect we're able to handle all these tasks as well as text messaging directly from our desktop.
  • Easy to implement desktop application
  • Simple frontend user interface
  • Mobile application is quite useful
  • Could make the backend admin panel a bit more user friendly
  • Adding lines/users
  • Affordable VoiP solution
  • Customer service is easy to contact and very helpful
  • Minimal/if any downtime
Implementation was fairly easy and porting our number was quicker than anticipated. Our CSR was very knowledgeable and provided concise timelines, addressed my initial questions, and overall the process was painless. After speaking with several other companies I decided to move with GoToConnect and have been satisfied since.
Very happy with call quality overall. We do on rare occasion have call drops and/or a slight delay but that may be attributed to internet connectivity issues. We use soft phones so I can't attest to how well the call quality is on a desktop phone but I'm quite happy how we're set up

Overall I'm very happy with the service. It's affordable, not too difficult to navigate once you're familiar with the admin panel, and very easy to use on the front end.

Using GoTo Connect

  • Price
  • Product Usability
  • Prior Experience with the Product
Most important feature is the desktop application, we use soft phones rather than desktop and this was a crucial requirement when making our selection.
Front end user interface is a piece a cake, very straightforward and training others is a breeze. Backend admin panel could use a little more work.
  • Inbound/Outbound sales calls
  • Customer service
  • Voicemail services
  • Text/SMS
GoTo Connect services have made it easy to manage our phone systems thus increasing our efficiency and profitability.
Affordable, simple to use, and serves it's purpose within the agency.
Unknown on this, we were referred to GoTo from another one of our clients. We previously utilized Google Voice however it didn't scale well with what we were trying to accomplish.
