Vonage is a home, business, and enterprise virtual phone service provider that has call recording available through their Business Cloud Advanced Plan. There are a few ways that your call center can access call recording software and other features that a contact center would need. For on-demand call recording (15 hours/mo), businesses can purchase any advance plan with prices that vary by number of users. Company-wide call recording is available as an add-on for $49.99/mo. This add-on includes 500 hours or storage, with additional blocks of 250 hours available for purchase.

8x8 is a company that offers business phone systems, contact center services, and hardware for small to enterprise businesses. It has four different plan options catering to both small businesses and enterprises looking to have call recording software and call center capabilities. Plans features vary from simple to highly advanced, making 8x8 a well-rounded option.


Recommended For: Call centers that want several advanced capabilities and have the option to purchase hardware.

Zendesk Talk

Zendesk Talk’s pricing is based on the feature plan chosen and related usage. Unlike most providers, all of Zendesk Talk’s plans include call recording. Customers can choose a simpler plan with less capabilities, or choose professional or enterprise plans that also include call monitoring and barging, analytics, and other advanced features that would be needed by larger teams. Numbers are sold separately (or can be ported), and total cost will include monthly usage that varies based on the type of number, whether its inbound or outbound, and the countries involved.


Recommended For: smaller teams that want an affordable and simple set of features, as well as post call survey capabilities.


For those who need call recording software as a standalone service for their call center, Voicestamps is an alternative for businesses that don’t need many features. Pricing includes a set up fee, a monthly fee, and cost based on usage.
