Show your clients that you care with VIP queue feature

Obviously, taking excellent care of all customers is very important for your business. However, there are those who definitely require top-class care – VIP clients. CloudTalk provides you with an option to create the priority list of customers that are the most important for your business. 

How does the VIP queue feature work? 

A pinch of relevant personalization with the Caller ID feature 

“Hi Michael, how can I help you today?” sounds much better than “You have reached the support department, what is your issue?”  Personalize the customer experience by delivering something extra from the very first contact. CloudTalk will show you the name of the caller, their phone number, and much more. Even before the call connects.

Never miss a call with the Desktop notification and the Callback feature

Being there for your clients creates a great customer experience. Turn on our Desktop notifications feature and when a call comes in, CloudTalk will automatically alert you.

We got your back also during peak hours. If there are any unanswered phone calls, CloudTalk can automatically call your customers back. Our system will later dial the customer’s number until the agent and the customer are successfully connected.

We will show you how to use the Cloudtalk desktop app, click to call feature and the smart dialer. We will also demonstrate CloudTalk’s dashboard features

Switch from OpenPhone

Looking for an OpenPhone Alternative? Look no further!

You’ve seen the reasons why you should consider CloudTalk as your OpenPhone alternative. 

After all, OpenPhone does have a number of limitations to worry about, including no auto-dialers, click-to-call, an open API, and missing integrations.

But of course, there are plenty of fish in the sea, so to help you make a good and informed decision, we’ve collected the top X competitors on the market. In this article, we’ll discuss their strengths, weaknesses, and prices.

10 Best OpenPhone Alternatives

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the competition:

  1. CloudTalk
  2. Line2
  3. Aircall
  4. Grasshopper
  5. Nextiva
  6. Dialpad
  7. RingCentral
  8. Vonage
  9. 3CX
  10. JustCall

#1 CloudTalk

Here’s why you should give CloudTalk a try:

  1. High-quality calls with guaranteed latency and minimal jitter
  2. Smooth workflow with our Intelligent call-routing tools
  3. Callback feature that redials the number until connected with the agent
  4. Redirecting calls during busy hours or when outside the office
  5. The call masking feature keeps your personal number private
  6. Plans start at $25/month with a free trial and demo.

#2 Line2 vs. OpenPhone

Line2 is a reliable VoIP solution, focused on smaller businesses rather than enterprises.

What makes Line2 unique?

Line2 is a cost-effective solution for small businesses. It offers great call quality and can be used on both desktop and mobile devices.

What is Line2 missing?

Line2 lacks various call center features, making it less than ideal for enterprises and outbound sales teams. For example, there are no shared numbers or search options included in its messaging feature, which users often point out. Automation features, such as sales dialers, are also missing.

How is Line2 priced?

While Line2 offers multiple packages, you can sign up for one option on their website.

The monthly subscription costs $15.99 per month, while the annual subscription costs $13.75 per month, billed annually.

Bear in mind, though, that this price doesn’t include taxes and other additional fees.

Line2 Conclusion

Line2 is a great solution for bootstrapped entrepreneurs and small businesses, but when it comes to larger businesses, their selection of features leaves much to be desired.

Notably, the solution is missing many essential features for sales teams that place a large number of daily outbound phone calls.

#3 Aircall vs. OpenPhone

Aircall is a calling software primarily targeted at small businesses. It offers a wide range of features and integrations, and is available at several different pricing tiers.

What makes Aircall unique?

Aircall excels when it comes to automations.

Aircall also features a great many useful integrations, including with:

  • Intercom,
  • Pipedrive
  • and Zapier.

What is Aircall missing?

Aircall lacks some essential video-calling features.

Webinar hosting and screen sharing capabilities are severely limited on the platform, which can lead to a fair amount of frustration on the part of users. 

How is Aircall priced?

Aircall’s most basic plan costs $30 per user per month.

Their intermediate plan costs $50 per user per month.

The most advanced plan requires prospective customers to contact one of their agents for pricing information. 

Aircall Conclusion

Aircall is a good alternative for small businesses, but certainly not all of them. Think about how frequently your team uses smart dialers. If they’re a core part of your day-to-day work, you might consider looking elsewhere. 

#4 Grasshopper vs. OpenPhone

Grasshopper is often the go-to VoIP solution for smaller businesses looking for call center software to streamline their operations all around the world. But is their business model really as SMB-friendly? Let’s see.

What makes Grasshopper unique?

As we mentioned, Grasshopper provides a streamlined solution that’s easy to navigate for almost anyone in a very short period of time. In terms of features, it comes with the bare necessities required to get your agents up and calling quickly.

There are a few unexpected but welcome exceptions to this rule, including:

  • voicemail transcription,
  • custom greetings,
  • and simultaneous call handling.

What is Grasshopper missing?

There is a downside to Grasshopper’s simplicity, however, and it’s this: The solution lacks several core VoIP features users may expect, including:

Furthermore, a fair few users complain that the app could benefit from some deeper reporting features.

How is Grasshopper priced?

Grasshopper offers users 3 pricing options for monthly and annual payments, respectively.

  1. The Solo plan starts at $29, paid monthly or $26 annually.
  2. The Partner plan starts at $49 monthly and $43 annually.
  3. Finally, the Small Business option will cost you $89 per month or $80 per year.

Grasshopper Conclusion

Grasshopper is a perfectly viable VoIP call center solution for smaller businesses, with most of its utility coming from its easy-to-navigate interface and a fair selection of key features. However, the trade-off is that you miss out on many more advanced VoIP features, and at a potentially higher price too.

#5 Nextiva vs. OpenPhone

Nextiva is a big player in the VoIP market, with more than 15,000 customers using their services. Nextiva benefits from a large exposure across enterprise companies.

The cloud-based telephony platform gives businesses a great way to improve both your external and internal business communication. Users get an omnichannel experience that supports the current global trend of remote work

What makes Nextiva unique?

First of all, Nextiva is user-friendly. Users can start calling within minutes, because the set-up is simple and intuitive. Furthermore, the system is hosted by Nextiva, which makes maintenance of the software Nextiva’s responsibility.

Nextiva offers various advanced features, including conference calling, voicemail transcription, multi-level attendant, and many more. The provider also integrates with solutions like Zendesk, ConnectWise or MS Teams.

Nextiva’s HIPAA-compliant virtual faxing makes it a great solution for healthcare workers. Medical employees can share information without having to worry about data breach. 

Furthermore, the 24/7 support is always there to assist you. 

What is Nextiva missing?

Although a well-known VoIP solution, there are some issues you should know about before deciding for this provider. 

  • Integrations: Nextiva is missing certain integrations, like Slack or Zapier. With Zapier, users would be able to further connect your VoIP telephony system with thousands of non-native systems. 
  • Prices: Nextiva’s prices may be considered high, mainly for small businesses.

How is Nextiva priced?

Nextiva’s plans are clearly stating what customers get for the price they pay.

  1. The cheapest plan will cost you $18.95 per month, per user. Yet, this pack lacks some important features, such as SMS, MMS, and call recordings. 
  2. Users can only record their calls with a third-level Enterprise plan for $32.95 user/month.

See detailed pricing here:

  • 1-4 users/monthly
    • Essential: $30.95  (anually minus 22%) 
    • Professional:$35.95  (anually minus 22%)
    • Enterprise:$45.95  (anually minus 22%)
  • 5-19 users
    • Essential:$29.95 (anually minus 26%)
    • Professional:$33.95 (anually minus 23%)
    • Enterprise:$43.95 (anually minus 18%)
  • 20-99 users
    • Essential:$25.95 (anually minus 27%)
    • Professional:$30.95 (anually minus 25%)
    • Enterprise:$40.95 (anually minus 19%)
  • 100 users
    • Essential:$24.95 (anually minus 28%)
    • Professional:$29.95 (anually minus 26%)
    • Enterprise:$39.95 (anually minus 20%)

Nextiva Conclusion

Nextiva is definitely one of the VoIP market leaders. It’s intuitive, it offers many features and serves across various industries.

Yet, the software is missing several essential integrations.

#6 Dialpad vs. OpenPhone

If you’re not new to the VoIP telephony market, you surely heard of Dialpad. It’s a reliable, unified telephony solution with simple built-in AI, and advanced analytics. A live chat, phone hotline, and knowledge base makes it a great deal for customer support teams. 

Dialpad’s scalability fits both small and large businesses.

What makes Dialpad unique?

Dialpad’s main advantages are voice intelligence and uptime between 99% and 100%

You’ll get conference video calls, sentiment analysis, voicemail transcriptions, call tracking metrics, Speech-to-Text for an automatic call recording, and many more. 

With Dialpad, you can call for free to the US and Canada from anywhere in the world. Inbound and outbound calling within your country is also free of charge.

The provider has a modern, well-organized UI, and offers a mobile application, and training videos.

What is Dialpad missing?

While offering a Power dialer, it lacks a Smart dialer and a Predictive dialer. The power dialer just works in Salesforce. Unlike the CloudTalk app, the Dialpad app only allows users to only dial manually. 

The Preferred agent feature only works through API. 

Dialpad also lacks a visual flow editor for Call flow designer. Sending SMS outside of the US and Canada isn’t possible, although this feature is soon coming to the UK.

The provider offers a limited integration stack, and Voicemail drop just comes with Dialpad Sell.

How is Dialpad priced?

Paid plans start at just $15 per user per month for the Standard Plan, and you can mix and match different packages. 

The Pro plan is $35 per user per month. 

Pricing for the Enterprise plan is determined on a case-by-case basis. 

Dialpad Conclusion

While having some great calling, performance tracking, and productivity tools, Dialpad only offers one auto dialer. It also has its gaps in sending SMS, which you can only do in the US and Canada. The integration portfolio is not too rich.

Dialpad even offers a free unlimited video calling pack for personal use.

#7 RingCentral vs. OpenPhone

When you think about VoIP telephony solutions, Ringcentral is probably among the first ones that comes to your mind. No wonder, the company has been on the market for over 20 years and it has built quite a reputation for itself. 

RingCentral has a great variety of features, and offers HD quality voice and video. The provider is a good fit for enterprises, since it offers omnichannel experience, lead qualification tools, as well as management, collaboration and performance features – all in a single software.

Let’s take a closer look at what makes RingCentral unique, what it’s missing, and more.

What makes RingCentral unique?

The platform has excellent video conferencing capabilities. Users get tools like whiteboard, screen sharing, breakout rooms, and a seamless scheduling process. 

RingCentral also extensively supports team cooperation. The software offers a native task management system, and integrates with collaboration software, such as Monday.com. 

RingCentral offers real-time metrics, so users can monitor the quality of service and enhance team productivity. Voicemail transcriptions allow users to find all information you need without having to always re-listen it. 

There are unlimited inbound/outbound calls, business SMS, internal chat option, and international numbers from over 100+ countries.

What is RingCentral missing?

Despite all the positives, RingCentral does lack quite many essential tools that modern businesses require.

Features like:

  • native sentiment analytics,
  • Speech-to-Text transcription,
  • smart dialers
  • or Skill-based routing

are only included in Contact Centre Solution. The same goes for some agent management features, like monitoring.

A Call recording tool and Toll-free numbers are only available as add-ons, for an additional cost. 

Furthermore, RingCentral’s implementation can take as much as 90 days and involves an implementation fee. 

RingCentral UI is also not always the friendliest.

How is RingCentral priced?

RingCentral’s pricing list starts with:

  1. an Essential plan for $19,99 user/month billed annually, but it is limited to a maximum of 20 users.
  2. Second cheapest, Standard plan will cost you $27,99 user/month,
  3. and the list goes all the way up to an Ultimate plan for $49,99 user/month.

Keep in mind that in order to get all communication channels – phone calls, messaging and video conferencing – you’ll have to purchase the second most expensive, Premium plan ($34.99).

RingCentral Conclusion

RingCentral is an established name on the VoIP market and a reliable solution. It has great video conferencing and performance tracking capabilities, yet several essential features are limited.

#8 Vonage vs. OpenPhone

Vonage is among the best-known virtual phone providers in the world. They’ve been in the business for over 20 years and have established an enviable reputation as a market leader

What makes Vonage unique?

With Vonage, you know what you’re getting when you sign up. As arguably the most well-established player in the VoIP space, Vonage offers its customers stability and reliability in business communication.

A lot of great features come standard with Vonage, including phone calls, messages, an auto-attendant, CRM integrations, voice and video conferencing, and call forwarding services. 

What is Vonage missing?

Unfortunately for customers, Vonage has capitalized on its reputation by charging much more for its services than other comparable virtual phone software providers. 

Vonage pricing also includes many hidden fees that make the service far more expensive than expected.

This can be a real downside for small businesses that need to be more discerning about how and where they expend their resources.

How is Vonage priced?

All of Vonage’s plans require prospective customers to contact a Vonage representative in order to receive a pricing quote. 

Vonage Conclusion 

Vonage has achieved legacy status in the virtual phone software industry, and their platform is reliable, easy to use, and effective. However, the company’s basic plans come with limited features, and adding more features to your plan often incurs significant additional costs. 

 However, unless you’re willing to invest a significant amount of resources into your virtual phone software setup, we’d recommend looking elsewhere. 

#9 3CX vs. OpenPhone

3CX is a PBX phone system for office-based teams. It runs exclusively with Microsoft Windows or Linux, so MacBook users are out of luck. 

It’s a relatively basic phone system, with simple features such as Live Chat and Call Recording. It does not however feature smart capabilities such as AI or real-time transcriptions.

What makes 3CX unique?

3CX’s biggest strength is its affordability.

It’s a bare-bones system, but one that can get the job done for small teams who aren’t interested in the bells and whistles that come with most smart calling software.

What is 3CX missing?

3CX lacks some of the features and integrations most businesses have come to expect when hunting for virtual phone software. For example, users cannot integrate 3CX with Pipedrive or Zapier, two of the most popular business software on the market.

3CX also doesn’t have any direct sales. It is only sold through distributors which can make the sales process, as well as the support process lengthy and costly.

How is 3CX priced?

3CX’s most basic plan is free.

Their first paid plan comes in at 175 euros per user per month, and their more advanced plans cost 296 euros and 330 euros per user per month, respectively.

3CX Conclusion

As we’ve mentioned, 3CX is a virtual phone software for businesses who are only interested in the basics. It leaves a lot to be desired in a lot of areas, so we recommend thinking about whether or not you might need something it lacks — like integrations with Pipedrive and Zapier — at a later date. 

#10 JustCall vs. OpenPhone

JustCall is a modern call center solution that provides all the basics for small businesses. MMS messaging; SMS automation; call tracking, recording, and monitoring; and integrations with several CRMs and helpdesks come standard with their lowest-tier, $20-per-user-per-month subscription plan.

What makes JustCall unique?

JustCall stands out amongst its competitors in 3 specific areas:

  • Auto and predictive dialing,
  • telemarketing management,
  • apps for desktop and mobile devices.

What is JustCall missing?

Although many useful basic features are available with JustCall’s entry-level package, there are some important ones that are kept behind a paywall. Even if you shell out for their highest-tiered plan, you’ll still have to pay additional fees for the use of call routing and voice transcriptions.

Furthermore, JustCall’s country coverage is quite lacking. They only offer local numbers in 70 countries worldwide, while many of their competitors offer numbers in over 100 — including CloudTalk, which offers numbers in over 160 countries worldwide.

How is JustCall priced?

Justcall’s most basic plan costs $24 per user per month. 

Their intermediate plan costs $48 per user per month, and their most advanced plan requires prospective customers to contact one of their agents for pricing information.

JustCall Conclusion

JustCall is a fine VoIP service for those who are just starting out. Bear in mind, though, that many useful features are kept locked behind a paywall. We recommend having your checkbook at the ready if you decide to use this service.
