Record calls for accountability
One of the biggest benefits of Kixi is the ability to record calls. This is an incredibly useful tool for businesses, as it ensures accountability when it comes to customer service, sales, and other important aspects of the company.
When it comes to sales, having calls recorded allows salespeople to go back and listen to what they said to a customer and ensure that they are following through with their promises. This can help to ensure that customers are satisfied and that salespeople are doing their job correctly. Furthermore, it provides managers with a way to monitor the performance of their sales team and ensure that they are meeting their goals.
On the customer service side, recording calls can be an invaluable tool for resolving customer complaints. If a customer claims that they were promised something that wasn’t delivered, a manager can go back and listen to the call recording to ensure that the customer was given the correct information. This helps to ensure that customers are being treated fairly and that businesses are providing the best possible service.
Finally, Kixi also provides a “listen in” and “conferencing” feature, which makes it easy for managers to actively coach and connect with their team. This allows managers to provide feedback and assistance in real-time, which can be incredibly beneficial for team members.
Overall, recording calls is an incredibly useful tool for businesses. It provides accountability, helps to ensure customer satisfaction, and makes it easier for managers to provide feedback and assistance to their team. Kixi makes it easy to record calls and get the most out of your integration with HubSpot.

This allows you to make multiple calls at once, and it eliminates the need for waiting for a response after each call. This saves time and effort, and it makes it easier to reach more people in a shorter amount of time. Additionally, Kixi has voicemail drops and SMS templates, which make it easier to send out pre-recorded messages and texts without having to type out the same message multiple times. This is especially useful for cold calling, as it helps to eliminate voice fatigue and makes the process much less annoying.
The ability to record calls is also incredibly beneficial. It provides accountability, as it allows managers to review calls and provide feedback and assistance to their team.
