How to use Smith.ai with Filevine
There are a number of ways to leverage Smith.ai and Filevine for even more efficient operations at your law practice, but there are three primary integrations that we'll focus on here, which involve lead capture, new client intake, and appointment booking.
1. Lead capture: Use Smith.ai receptionists to call back new leads
Filevine allows you to create custom integrated web forms and embed them on your website. You can use these forms to collect any information, so they're excellent to capture new leads or to intake new clients.
integrated web forms are a new Filevine feature, so you'll need to first contact Filevine support to enable the form builder on your account. Once that's done, just build your form and embed it on your website. For example, a new lead form can be placed on your "Contact Us" page.
When new leads come in, you'll receive an email notification that a new web form submission has been made. You can auto-forward these emails to Smith.ai, and our receptionists will call these new leads back immediately, and qualify them based on your custom criteria. See #2 below, for what happens next.
2. New client intake: Have Smith.ai receptionists complete web intake forms
Once our receptionists have qualified the lead on the phone, whether it's from a web form call-back or from an incoming call, we can then proceed with client intake, if they meet your criteria. Just create another web form, this time for new client intake, and our receptionists will complete it on the caller's behalf. All we need is the link to the web form that you've embedded on your website.
3. Appointment booking: Let Smith.ai receptionists schedule meetings & call-backs on your calendar
Depending on your workflows for new leads and existing clients, you may wish for our receptionists to book appointments on your behalf. These could be new lead call-backs if a live transfer was not possible, existing client meetings, court dates, or other appointment types.
Filevine integrates with Google Calendar and Office 365. While our receptionists are not able to use Filevine to directly add events to your calendar, there is a very easy and inexpensive workaround using Calendly. Simply link your Google Calendar or Office 365 account to Calendly (which is free for one event type and very inexpensive thereafter), and then provide your Calendly scheduling link to your Smith.ai receptionists. We will book events on Calendly, and those will appear in your Filevine calendar auto-magic-ally.
