The categorically cloud-based application eradicates the need for hardware installation or setup fees as well.

Pay as you go
With this package, you also get 1 UK number and all of the CircleLoop features (conference calling, call recording and voicemail to text etc.) but to place UK outbound or international calls, you will have to pay 3p/min.

No matter which package you choose, you will not have to sign a contract or pay any set-up fees. All things considered, CircleLoop’s pricing policy is very consumer-friendly.

Features and Functionality
Luxury to choose your own number
CircleLoop gives you the luxury to choose from a long list of local, national, and mobile numbers present in the UK. After you choose your city, you are presented with an array of available numbers and you can choose the one you like the most.
The CircleLoop application allows you to set up a personalized voicemail message that can greet your customers for you when you are not available. You can either record a voicemail directly from the application or upload a compatible file (from the Calls section under Settings). You can also personalize your settings to direct an unanswered call to another colleague instead of making it go to voicemail.
The CircleLoop application for Windows and Mac devices has three sections: settings, dial-pad, and analytics. From the analytics section, you can view the number of total calls, the number of inbound calls, missed calls and outbound calls made during customizable timeframes. You can also view the users who made the calls or the numbers on which the calls were made during the selected timeframe.
Rich telephony features
CircleLoop has some rich VoIP features like voicemail to text which transcribes all your voicemails for you (and sends them to your emails), call transfer (which transfers your live calls to your colleagues), conference calling and call recording etc. You can even set the business hours during which you will be available to receive calls.
Mobility and real-time synchronization
With applications for your laptop and your smartphones (both Android and IOS), you can access all the telephony features from anywhere and everywhere, all you need is an internet connection. All the data is also synchronized across all devices in real-time.
Ease of Use
Unlike most VoIP applications, CircleLoop has a very clean, easy-to-use interface which shouldn’t offer a learning curve, even to the novices. The desktop and smartphone applications respond very swiftly to touch and switching between different screens is also seamless. Registration can be done within seconds from the company’s website and as soon as the download completes, you can install the application with a few clicks. All in all, it’s safe to state that CircleLoop scores fairly high on the usability front.
