One thing that customers like about CircleLoop is that it can accomplish multiple tasks simultaneously, alleviating a lot of the headache that comes from managing several apps at once. Since CircleLoop mobile and desktop apps work seamlessly with some of the most commonly used apps and software that you are probably using right now like Slack, HipChat, Capsule, and more, you can get things like conference calls, shared calling, and team collaboration done more efficiently and for the same price. Some of the integrations include
CircleLoop offers competitive pricing plans for both frequent and infrequent calling habits. There are 2 plans to choose between, and you can also take advantage of the add-ons included. Here’s a breakdown of the CircleLoop pricing structure:
Pay as You Go Plan
Price per month
£5 per user
£15 per user
Unlimited to UK, US, Canada, and Ireland
*Prices last updated June 2018
Most businesses will find the Unlimited Plan more advantageous, and if you find yourself making more than 1 or 2 calls per day, it already pays for itself. If you are primarily using the service for inbound calls though, the Pay as You Go plan is impressively inclusive, offering some great features along with its free inbound call capability. International calls will cost you from 3p per minute for more than 170 countries around the globe including Canada, Denmark, Hong Kong, Israel, India, Mexico, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, South Korea, and the US, making CircleLoop one of the most competitively priced options for international business calling available. Other countries such as Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Costa Rica, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, China, and Sri Lanka can cost either 10p or 20p per minute, still a cheaper alternative than most
Regardless of which plan you choose, the best part about CircleLoop’s pricing structure is that it is absolutely commitment-free, there are no contracts you are committing to, and you can cancel at any time. We liked that kind of flexibility because it ensures that you are always the one in control of your communications solution and can get out whenever you want
A few other pricing options are available as well if you want to boost your productivity with CircleLoop. You can get an additional UK line for £2 per month, port an existing number for £20, or add international numbers for as little as £5 per month.
CircleLoop offers a flawless mobile app, making your business as mobile as you want it. You can do everything you can do from the office directly from your mobile device, so CircleLoop is ideal if
You need to get up and go all of a sudden
You want to work from home
You're going on vacation and don't want to miss out on a meeting
You have any other reason you want or need to work remotely
The mobile app is clear with simple navigation and contains all of the same functionality as the desktop app. It runs on 4G for the highest quality connection and ensures you’ll never miss or drop a call.
Scalability is simple with CircleLoop because of the payment structure and app integration. You don't need to think about which plan will work best for your business as you grow. The pricing structure fits your business at any stage. The technology can also handle a tremendous amount of calls and tasks simultaneously, so even as you grow, you won't feel any lag
In fact, a system like CircleLoop will actually improve sales because customers are more likely to answer a phone call from a local number than a generic 800 number or out of area call. So, CircleLoop can help your company scale up both directly and indirectly
Setup couldn't possibly be easier than it is with CircleLoop. Because it has no equipment to deal with (more on that below) and no integration, you'll likely be up and running in just a matter of minutes. We really liked how fast and simple it was to get things started with both the CircleLoop desktop and mobile apps
Managing the accounts was equally stress-free. We could quickly add or remove users with a few clicks, add new phone numbers, organize calls, and make calls without having to leave the system or learn any complicated procedures. All changes we made went live instantly, something else we really appreciated about this system because nobody wants to sit around waiting for systems to update when you need a change to happen now.
The beauty of CircleLoop is that it is a desktop app. That means the software sits on your computer and not on your physical desktop. So, you have more room to maneuver without equipment cluttering up your workspace. The only thing you need to use CircleLoop is a headset or speakers, and these are all compatible (and available through CircleLoop):
Jabra Evolve headsets
Jabra Speak speakers
CircleLoop customer service is available via email, phone, and even live chat. Alternatively, you can reach out to the staff on social media channels with the links below. The live chat feature is impressive enough, but once you add the SMS customer service chat option, you have brought customer service to a whole new level of convenience.
CircleLoop offers international VoIP calls for some of the lowest prices anywhere. As we mentioned previously in the pricing section of this review, you can make international calls to a huge network of countries for as little as 3p/minute. Here’s a list of countries available at that rate:
US Virgin Islands
Vatican City State
Other countries will cost you 10p/minute. These countries include:
The most expensive calls will cost you 20p/minute, still a very reasonable rate, considering the industry standards. Here are some countries that fall into the highest international pricing category:
Antigua and Barbuda
Bosnia and Herzegovina
British Virgin Islands
St Kitts and Nevis
St Vincent and Grenadines
Trinidad and Tobago
Turks and Caicos Islands
CircleLoop is new to the industry, but since its first day on the scene, it has been wowing critics with all of the benefits it can provide. Offering a cheaper alternative to traditional telecom systems and plans (and even cheaper than many VoIP options available), CircleLoop is allowing businesses of any size to take advantage of more advanced communications solutions.
CircleLoop’s features are also pretty exciting, with useful options like call forwarding, personalized greetings, and voicemail to text. What’s more, this service offers a lot of ways for your team members to collaborate with one another no matter where they are. That’s a big benefit in our book. Couple that with great customer service and clutter-free hardware options, and CircleLoop is quickly earning its place at the top of the business VoIP solutions food chain.
