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.

Cons

8x8 Contact Center

  • It would be nice if things could be adjusted through phone codes rather than through just an online interface. Having to be logged in to do things can be an inconvenience at times.
  • Possibility of hearing the channel through audio before answering the call

Ytel

  • Reporting could be simplified a little more.

We've had to contact support a lot since the product is not easy to use. Some of the support specialists are better than others. Their support team really lacks in their knowledge of the 8x8 plug-in and how that works and interfaced with Salesforce. Your team does now know the limitations of the product.

Support is always available via chat or telephone. Support staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. In the 8 years that we have used Ytel, I have never had a bad support experience. Top-notch customer service!!!

Alternatives Considered

8x8 Contact Center

I have used such products as eWorkforce, Avaya and Blue Pumpkin. Those products when I was using them were operated on in-house servers and were covering larger groups.
8x8, as I have said, works very well in this environment. I prefer that we are not hosting the program but rather as using it. While there was a certain level of analytics and scheduling that could be utilized in the other products, I really don't have the need here. Our program, due to its nature is predictable enough to not need the full scheduling options.
