Get started with VoiceNation

VoiceNation’s $30 month plan is basic message taking and adding features will only ever cost you $75 a month. After that, the price increase is based on minutes used, not services rendered.

PatLive records calls and has no guaranteed confidentiality. This means if you’re looking for a medical or legal answering service, PatLive cannot protect your sensitive information – leaving you exposed to potential lawsuits. Their basic message taking service is $39 a month, whereas VoiceNation’s is $30.

At VoiceNation, our inclusive, feature-rich packages start at $75. You’ll also get a dedicated account manager. At Patlive, that’ll cost you the Pro package at $629 a month.

Patlive will capture your leads, but only as part of their more expensive ($149 a month and upward) plans. VoiceNation’s lead capture is completely free starting with our $75 Business Plan.

The bottom line

Patlive will send your messages to you instantly through email or text. At VoiceNation, you get instant notification of your messages through email, text and our mobile app. What’s more, our app can double as a second phone line for you.
