Dan GardinerSugarCRM. Open source you can self host it with a cheap shared hosting plan or on one of your own servers.

Question for my fellow SNs. We use Grasshopper + Vonage as our in-house phone combo for inbound sales/support. It's been less than reliable to say the least, so I was wondering if anyone had better options to propose? ... See MoreSee Less

Joseph TeoHey Yves We run our sales and support off Skype. It's $9.99/month and you get your own skype number and unlimited calling across north america. Get your own Skype number (We got a NY one so that it's familiar to our customers and prospect) and you can forward it to your local number as well. Been working great for us! Hope that helps :)

Christian LassondeCurious. Is it Grasshopper or Vonage that is flakey? or just the combo?

Ali H DinaniInteresting - We use Talkdesk for support at CareGuide and our team loves it. The only problem is that their analytics platform isn't great.

Rodrigo Madrizvonage has worked for me at my home for about 5 years. Not one glitch. I understand VOIP.ms is as good but you may expect an inferior service level (e.g. by email) vs. a call center. Voip.ms is significantly cheaper too

Colin SampaleanuI like voip.ms. They are very reliable, have great support, and are way cheaper than Vonage. I don't know why somebody would pay the premium for Vonage given the other options out there...

Jevon MacDonaldIf it's for anything customer facing, don't be cheap! Get a high quality route -- something like trulywireless.com/ -- Twilio, Grasshopper, etc are NOT good enough or reliable enough IMO.

Brian SharwoodWe use Talkdesk and it's been solid. I think we've got about 6-7 agent licences on it. Grasshopper is really just for 1-5 people. Vonage is really just for single use.

Simran KambojWhy not just get a dedicated connection using SIP going to the pstn? Who is your internet provider?

Ian Andrew BellI may be biased in the matter but @RingCentral's Canadian service platform has improved radically of late. Reliability and provisioning has really shined in recent updates.
