How CloudTalk Compares to Google Voice and Nextiva

Nextiva offers 20 features and Google Voice even less. We have you covered with 70 advanced tools to serve and support all business needs.

CloudTalk provides you with advanced automation and call management features, such as a Power and Predictive Dialer, IVR, ACD or skill-based routing, so you can automate a large portion of your calling process, saving time and resources.

Features
