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.

Well suited for sites where the product is hardware because with those if there are any questions then the site could help eliminate having to contact the company directly and waiting for answers days later. This would be suited for products as the answer could be given and the more complex questions would be directed to the company.
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review Google Cloud Contact Center AI is based on the same foundation infrastructure and services as Google Assistant, therefore, it is robust and flexible. The APIs are very well built and documented as well. Any newbie can start using the service with a very little learning curve. Seamless integrations are also a great add-on. Google makes sure that Contact Center AI service integrates well with leading customer service platforms which helps any user to use only the required functionalities from Contact Center AI and meanwhile use any other primary platform. Robust documentation which is always alive and is updated within no time is of great help! Google makes sure its end customers know what to do where and when in clear plain text and any issues/ bugs are also documented. Read full review Cons 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. Read full review It's still in the beginning phase of sentimental Analysis and more data sets can really help during tough conversations. Automation can be made a little simpler and basic for anyone to be able to work on it. Each instance of the software can have its own AI learning for a wider range of real time issues.

We are happy with the implementation and functionality of the software and associated systems. In general, unless something better can replace this system we intend on continuing. We think the ease of systems implementation and integration adds value and substantiates the use and excellent functionality of the product and associated services.

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!!

Generally intuitive and easy to learn. I would like more guides but the learning curve is rather quick and makes the software rather an easy study for the average user. Generally, the support and functionality of the software make for a generally good outcome and easy implementation of the software and user experience.

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.

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.

IBM Watson Assistant
has been the one we have used in the company, in fact, it was the first to use it because currently in the market there are not many options to use, and if there are they are not receiving enough publicity, so we have limited ourselves to google cloud contact center AI.

It is pretty much "Par for the course" with the options out there with other vendors.

Read full review Return on Investment The ROI for us is measured more within the CSAT and NPS score increase we have seen thus far, both scores have gone up significantly since we have streamlined our process with 8X8. We are now focusing our attention on retention with the hopes of seeing a second wave of ROI with 8X8. Read full review Reduced the number of minutes spent by live agents on trivial queries. Our client saved thousands of dollars by using the AI contact center as now the agents spend most of their time solving real issues. Customer satisfaction got increased exponentially.
