    For the price, having all of these features is amazing. If you have separate divisions and want to not have a ton of crossover with calls this is a great setup. It isn’t a great setup if you need only one phone since it doesn’t make sense since you won’t use most of the features.

    Genesys Cloud CX is great for so many reasons! It's a power house for getting business done. The company I am at uses it daily... we are a call center that makes thousands of calls a day. Genesys Cloud CX not only dials those calls for us, but it also tracks every thing as well - which is easily able to be exported for reports. There are so many things you can track - over 50 different categories like talk time, hold time, conversion, etc... Genesys Cloud CX helps all our employees work remotely on the web based dialer, which has allowed us to hire all over the states! The Genesys Cloud CX team is continuously making updates to ensure that it's extremely user friendly! Overall it's a great product for our business.

    • DCM (e-mail tool) is a kind of system within a system. It requires logging in twice and it's not as stable as Genesys Cloud CX.
    • Based on our worldwide operations we needed to split the markets within multiple divisions. These divisions are still giving us a hard time with daily operations. We have multi-skilled users which sometimes need access to multiple markets but if these markets are in different divisions, it also means that users will get access to all the markets within those divisions. This is not an acceptable thing from a security perspective.
    • Internal chat - we tried to test if it would fit our needs but there were many things we couldn't filter. One of the main problems was that all the users could contact each other and this couldn't be filtered by team/market/site/division. It also showed the statuses of all the users which we saw as a data breach as other colleagues could see how long users are on productive/non-productive statuses.

      Everything is very good. It is very useful, friendly to users and it makes our work easier than what we expected. I think that I don't need any help from someone on how to use Genesys coz basically they will directly feed it to you without any hassle on using it.

      If you get less than 4 phones you fall into the online only customer service. There were a couple of times that I could have used more assistance but figuring it out online was a bit of a hassle.

      There seem to be so many pages and options for support - but none of them are very seamless and some are very hard to maneuver or manage. I would like to learn more about the product features and tutorials etc. - but have had a hard time finding appropriate content.

      I have taken the preparatory course for Genesys Cloud Certification. I must say that it is a good training for administrators and analysts. The bibliography is very clear and is easy to identify the topics, which are conveniently separated. It is, in my opinion, mandatory for those who want to exercise the position of Genesys Cloud platform administrators.

      The support engineer that I partnered with during the implementation was exceptional. Every element of the process was done together and the end result of the efforts to grow the knowledge to be able to hand over at the end enabled a pretty smooth transition.

      8x8, Inc.

      I love 8x8. Having not used Polycom phones before, the hardest part was learning how to set up and use the actual phones. 8x8 makes it a seamless transition from using other service providers. Their customer service is excellent although if you get their cheapest plan you will only get online assistance.

      Very similar platforms. Sometimes the other ones assume the companies already have a CRM where they will manage some stuff away from their platform. Although Genesys Cloud CX goes in that direction, it still has some useful old features. Genesys-PS were amazing and the knowledge transfer was great.

Agent, Supervisor, Administrator, and Business Users) Also, the billing period/frequency starts on the actual day the platform is delivered.

      Professional services are definitely much more experienced than the support teams, and the price for their services is very fair. I wish that the support team could help answer simple questions about work that the PSS team does, however, so that we do not have to use our SOW for simple Q&A emails.

      Return on Investment

      • We are still learning all the nuances but we miss much fewer calls.
      • Transitioning calls to the appropriate person is much easier.
      • Ease of use.

      • Efficiency has been vastly increased. The number of abandoned calls has been reduced upon switching to Genesys Cloud and customers are seeing this benefit as well as our agents.
      • Cost of our call center is expected to be reduced upon full transition to Genesys Cloud. As this is one of our highest costs of business from a technology perspective, we are very happy to have found something that meets our needs but also reduces cost.
