8x8 Contact Center

Any business environment where you have remote workers, 8x8 is very well suited for that situation. Large call center operations are also well suited for 8x8 usage. The capabilities of 8x8 Contact Center allow for training (two party call listening). Additionally, the administration of 8x8 is relatively intuitive, and doesn't take a huge amount of time to set up new users.

Well suited:Environments that don't require texting, and where users are highly technical and able to troubleshoot on your own. We've found that we need an internal tools manager AND an expert on each sales/support team to successfully onboard new team members and ensure current team members know how to use the tool.Not well-suited
  1. Organizations that rely on texting.
  2. Organizations with low tech literacy on their teams.
  3. Organizations with little ability to manage tools like this.

Pros

8x8 Contact Center

  • 8x8 supports multiple platforms which made it easy to implement across our organization, with both physical and virtual phones for all employees.
  • 8x8 offers an easy to learn administration system, which is fairly robust and offers as much or as little customization as you may need for your business.
  • 8x8 comes with great onboarding support.

  • Availability- Five9 has servers in multiple regions and an entire team monitoring 24/7 to make sure we do not have down time.
  • Scalability- We can quickly increase our licenses up and down based on the needs of our clients.
  • Security- We do not have to worry about security.
  • Quality of voice- we are able to use Five9's soft phones and sustain a high quality of voice.
  • Single code set and cloud based software as a service. Competitors we looked at were typically more of a collection of applications.
  • Speed/Ease of use- We can manage Five9 with a single administrator vs an IT department.
  • Compliance- for outbound dialing compliance is built in. We also use their TCPA solution for dialing cellular phones.
  • Future proof: Five9 continues to invest in making their virtual contact center better. This in turn makes our service offering stronger.

Cons

8x8 Contact Center

  • The initial live support person can sometimes be difficult to communicate with. However, they will take down your key problems and escalate it to the right person to deal with your issues.
  • Better online chat support. The online chat seems to be limited to a bot to direct to their FAQ or to assist in opening a ticket only. The ability to schedule a chat online instead of calls would help.

  • Java based desktop application is a pain to keep updated.
  • The user interface for the agent desktop application is clunky and outdated. It could use a facelift.
  • The help center for documentation isn't well organized and the documentation needs substantial editing.

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!!

The agents took ownership and solved the problem. Restating and clarifying everything I said kept 8x8 from getting a "10" here. Despite the agents restating and clarifying too much, the senior technicians know what they are doing! They kept digging and digging until they found the problem, fixed it, and (most importantly) tested it before ending the call. This is not consistent with call center industry standards as most agents with other firms "fix" a problem and hang up. We don't learn how bad the "fix" was until later.

Five9's Customer Support team is also based in Manila Philippines, thus turnaround email response times for our reported issues are great for our requirements. Their CS agents also facilitate mobile calls to followup on outstanding issues and operate on a 24/7 schedule. We've also had experience working with the senior tech agents to investigate recurring issues to completion.

Alternatives Considered

8x8 Contact Center

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.

While we use Invoca and LeadsPedia for more granular tracking and data, Five9 has always sort of been the end all be all. If it's in Five9, it's pretty concrete that the info in Five9 is the correct information. It doesn't matter which campaign a call came through, if it came through at all, it will be seen in Five9.
