8x8 Contact Center has made my Care Center run much more efficiently. It is a move that I wish we had made many years ago. There have not been any days that we have had a disruption in service and the quality of the calls are always perfect.

Having worked in insurance from a work from home standpoint for a while, Aloware is definitely one of the better softwares for use in incoming/outgoing calls. The site is very user friendly and really well managed. The park feature is very convenient as well. The site doesn't feel clunky are have too much information (info overload) like other softwares out there.

Pros
8x8, Inc.
  • Tracks all inbound and outbound calls from our organization.
  • Gives us the ability to record and review calls.
  • Gives the user the ability to receive phone call either via computer, cell phone, or polycom phone when in-house - all received from the same static number/extension.

Cons
8x8, Inc.
  • Post-sale support through the online ticket system is painfully slow.
  • It's hard to get in contact with people for license help and understanding why phone numbers are not properly distributed in your account. i.e. Our account has 48 free local numbers and we had to purchase 120 additional numbers. But for some reason only 25 of the 48 free numbers are being utilized, and there's no good way in the Admin UI to see which numbers are which, or reallocate paid numbers into those 'free' slots.
  • The system has bugs which pop up from time to time such as when a user uses the 'Do Not Disturb' option in their app or on their phone - it does not always turn off on the back-end of the system, even though the phone or app shows the user as available. This causes inbound phone calls to be routed directly to Voicemail, and the only notice the user has is when someone reaches out by other means to say "Why is your phone going directly to voicemail?" - which initiates a service ticket for IT who cannot see this in the admin center. And unless 'flipping' DND on then off again fixes it, it requires a ticket with 8x8 which is, as mentioned before, slow.

Usability

The system is flexible, adaptable and easy to use and research. Once again the reporting is fantastic and gives up the information we need to be successful and even make changes or tweaks. The 8x8 Contact Center team is there to assist with questions when needed or to help get through an issue. Charlie Knutson is the best!!

Support Rating

The initial live support person seems to be just collecting information and is outsourced. Sometimes it is difficult to communicate with them, but going through this process gets me to the right person and having my support ticket opened in order. It's usually very smooth thereafter.

Vonage was priced right on the install but escalated as the year went on and by the end of the second year, they had lost the edge they had over many other companies and forced a change by me. We had to work with a single account manager and that was hard when things went wrong on the system. The downtime was minimal with them also.

Aloware is definitely more user friendly with an up to date user interface. Their texting feature is much easier to keep records over compared to Chase and the connection while on the phone with customers is a lot better. With Chase, it always seemed staticy and unreliable
