8x8 Contact Center

My experience with 8x8 is solely based on implementing and using it for our dedicated Client Support call center. 8x8 was the perfect solution to our call routing, IVR scripting, and call recording needs. Since our routing is based on Client Support Specialist availability, the system performs better when more than five users are logged in. 8x8 also integrates very well with our Salesforce support system.

Genesys contact center suite is super powerful and can do anything a medium or lager contact needs however the cost is tremendous. It would not be feasible for smaller businesses. It would be nice to see a smaller suite of apps that would accommodate small to medium contact centers.

Pros

8x8 Contact Center

  • Cleaner workspace with organization and efficiency at the forefront of our associates day.
  • Better reporting, making the process of coaching and developing agents easier task for our front line leadership team members.
  • Quality metrics have allowed for us to identify areas of concern when it comes to training, thus allowing us to proactively adjust our new hire training as well as our soft skill modules we use as part of our on-going training program.

  • VHT as a stand alone model can be easily plugged into to the current call routing with minimal changes and it works like charm.
  • Platform SDKs are a powerful tool that help integrate with other third party solutions or to build custom made applications.
  • The whole routing solution is amazing . With user friendly composer, you have the option of building both VRUs and routing strategies. And, they are very easy to deploy.
  • The level of details for report customization is another strong point.

Cons

8x8 Contact Center

  • The 8x8 Contact Center phone application sometimes seems slow to connect calls, but this could be due to users' cell phone functionality and/or a slow internet connection.
  • The 8x8 phone application answer button is somewhat small. Instead of being able to simply scroll up on my phone screen to answer a call, I first have to access a small circle on the phone screen and then scroll up in order to answer.

  • Difficult to build complete end-to-end automation of deployment.
  • Genesys Framework Alerting functionality is flexible, but overly complicated to manage. Needs ability to mass deploy alerts.
  • SIP server feature functionality feels limited and requires using router to build in what in many switches are basic functions.

It's the best product with customizations that fit our organisation. It is easy to upscale and is innovative. It has easy integrations with different back end and front end platforms and off the shelf integration of VoIP with a number of SBCs.

Overall, from a customer perspective and also an agent perspective, it is very easy to use Genesys PureEngage's platform. The Agent Desktop and Genesys WDE are good. Usability is high and I would consider it an easy to use product and easy to adopt from this perspective.

When dealing with higher level support or our rep, support is better than I could ever hope! Low level support clearly has a script and can be a bit frustrating but in general VERY pleased with the level of support we receive

There's definitely room for improvement. I would have love to see the chat functionality work more frequently. The level of expertise has diminished over the years. I understand that this in part has to do with the number of new products that has been introduced, but should not be an excuse for the lack of readiness.

Implementation on Genesys PureEngage is rather complex. Implementation needs specialized Genesys Professionals and resources, in-house or contractors, who are able to implement the platform and be able to integrate with other in-house or COTS systems. The design and discovery phase is also very important at the beginning.

Alternatives Considered

8x8 Contact Center

We go back and forth on whether or not we have made the right decision. Both companies provide some really good functionality but if we weren't using NetSuite we would have gone elsewhere. That being said, 8x8 provides the best call center functionality but Contivio has much better NetSuite integration. Lots of room for a different vendor to come along and sway us to move to their solution.

Our original call center routing was done through Avaya. We still use it on the back end and from what I can tell, Genesys vastly improves upon their offering. We are able to do so much more with the customization that Genesys allows. Anything you can think of, you can probably do with a Genesys solution.
