Like most companies in April, we were in quarantine. But we did and continue to do everything so that our users do not feel the difference in comparison with the “normal” time. In the previous month, Ringostat released five updates: new integrations, and improved payment process, and much more.

Digest of Ringostat updates for April 2020

  1. Integration with Messenger: beta version
  2. Integration with SalesDrive
  3. Call categories set by default
  4. Premium partners page is available on the website
  5. Comfy list of Ringostat integrations

    1. Integration with Messenger: beta version

    At the beginning of April, we announced the release of Ringostat Messenger, a multi widget for processing leads from different messengers. Now the sales rep does not need to keep open corporate Viber and Telegram, and time from time checking the company’s Facebook. So there will still be a chance that he will miss one request while he answers the other one in another interface. Due to Ringostat Messenger, messages get in one window and the sales rep can communicate with customers there.

    In addition to Viber and Telegram, we added Messenger to the extension. This will allow covering all communication channels that customers can text to. How it works:

    IMPORTANT: integration is in opened beta-testing now

    • the customer opens the company’s Facebook and texts a message;
    • the sales rep receives a pop-up notification that a new dialog has been added to the queue — even if the browser is minimized;
    • the employee opens Ringostat Messenger and starts the work with a dialog;
    • all the further conversation takes place in Ringostat Messenger, while the customer continues to text a company on Facebook;
    • if several buyers send messages at the same time, dialogs will appear in the queue, and the sales rep will take them to work one by one;
    • the employee can see information on the customer that he is chatting with: from which ad he came from, which pages he viewed most often, how many times he called, etc .;
    • the sales rep can also find out the history of all active dialogs that are still in the work.

    Using Ringostat Messenger and new integration, you shorten the customer’s journey. He does not have to wait until the SMM specialist sends the information to colleagues from the sales department, then wait for their answer, etc. The needed employee will immediately answer the customer’s questions. This increases the chance of closing the deal faster and easier.

    Ringostat Messenger is a part of Ringostat Smart Phone.
    What are the benefits of Ringostat Smart Phone:

    • Ease of usage — make and receive calls directly in the Google Chrome browser, go to a deal or CRM contact in one click.
    • Make calls by simply clicking from any web page — it saves in general 4 hours 20 minutes per employee per month. Work in one window — there is no need to switch between different systems.
    • Call a customer by his name — the extension will show the name of the user if he is already presented in CRM.
    • Valuable insights for sales reps — guess costumers’ needs before answering a call, due to the Ringostat Insider extension that displays information on the caller.


    2. Integration with SalesDrive

    This update will be useful for online stores and any companies that sell their products online. It’s especially important during quarantine when many types of businesses have moved online.

    Salesdrive is a CRM system, designed for online stores and sales of goods. It allows you to work with requests from the website, telephony, documents, newsletters, and much more. Now the owners of online stores can not only receive calls but also analyze ads that drive leads.

    Advantages of the integration 

    1. Automatic transfer call data to SalesDrive. CRM stores the history of conversations for all deals.
    2. Sales department control and service quality improvement. The system records information on missed and received calls by the sales rep.
    3. Understanding of ads that brought the lead. Data about the source, channel, campaign, and a keyword is stored in the SalesDrive call database and transferred to applications.

    Due to SalesDrive and Ringostat integration, the call is immediately transferred to the responsible employee. The sales rep can also make calls from CRM in one click. When there is an inbound call, the employee sees a pop-up call card. He can fill it out during a conversation, create an application, and contact, see all customer’s requests, leave a comment. If it’s a junk call, the employee just needs to leave a comment and create no contact.


    3. Call categories set by default

    Ringostat provides the opportunity to create your own call categories. This helps to evaluate the quality of traffic and filter calls by the topic. For example, you can specify the categories “spam”, “consultation”, “sale”, “service issues”.

    Since April, categories that are relevant for any business will be available by default when you create a project:

    • spam
    • consultation on a new order/customer;
    • consultation on the current order/customer (support);
    • sale of goods/services.

    Call categories set by default


    We want to remind you that you can go to the settings in the section of your Ringostat account General Settings — Call Categories. After the call, the sales rep can assign a category either manually or in semi-automatic mode. You can read more information in the article from the knowledge base.


    4. Premium partners page is available on the website

    Premium partners are agencies, integrators, or other companies that connect Ringostat to their clients and include our service to their business proposal.

    We really appreciate cooperation with them, so we added a page with their description on the website. Simply go to the Resources section — Premium Partners. Now the potential customer can check the list and choose a suitable company for himself. You can read the description, see cases, learn specialization, and much more about each partner.
