8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

Any business that has workers in multiple locations or workers who are based out for the office for significant periods of time will really benefit from the 8x8 cloud-based system. Your direct line follows you around, but because of the Virtual Attendant, office hours and out of hours can be configured so that you only receive calls when you're "at work."

InContact is a solid phone platform for a call center. For the basic user, it is easy to understand and use. For the more detailed user or manager, some of the reports are difficult to manipulate. Trying to find what you really need can be challenging at times. Also, the screen does freeze from time to time.

Pros

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

  • Conference call feature is great. We have created multiple conference bridges, we even have one tied to our virtual attendant.
  • We like the flexibility of the auto attendant and being able to have more than one profile saved that we can change as needed
  • Having Virtual office was especially great when hurricane Irma came through last year and our office had no power, it allowed us to continue to operate from our cell phones without the customer realizing there was anything different.
Robbie Mancl | TrustRadius Reviewer

NICE inContact CXone

  • The Studio is amazing. You can design all sorts of logic and process for calls to be routed through, based on integration data, and a whole slew of things. It also defines what you pass to your agent and screen pops.
  • Integration with 3rd party sources real-time is quite good. API interoperability is great.
  • Integration with Salesforce is, though a bit clunky, very functional and works as intended.
Hans Hong | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

  • The iPhone app is powerful, but clunky.
  • The technical support (which was absolutely amazing when we first signed up with 8x8) is terrible now. The same goes for their customer service (that is, if there is a problem that tech support can't fix or doesn't handle well, and then you call customer service to complain, they'll just pat you on the head and tell you to go on your way).
  • The web interface is difficult to use, both from a user standpoint and an administrator standpoint.
Andy Taylor | TrustRadius Reviewer

NICE inContact CXone

  • The analytics are good but the user interface can be challenging to use. If you have a team of expert analysts and need really precise analytics then it can be useful but the learning curve can be high.
  • The way to create "categories" or "topics" is more cumbersome than with other platforms.
  • They eliminated some key external data sources when the acquired Biz 360 which made them a less desirable option for our company.

We've had an excellent experience with 8x8 Virtual Office. We have downtime very rarely and the service provided by all reps is excellent. The little quirks that I've mentioned as cons are minor inconveniences but I prefer working like that than hosting our own PBX.

Attensity is pretty good at creating barriers to exit with their tool. It takes quite a bit of staging and preparation to setup the API connection between it's tool and your current tools that bring in the customer sentiment. That being said, once its all automated it is quite convenient to have auto-populated reports showing how customers feel about your brand. This was the primary reason to renew the contract

The web interface is easy to navigate and the data that I need is only ever one or two clicks away. When running reports, I don't have to deal with convoluted filters or awkward logic implementations, it just works and it works well. If I had to fault it for something, I would say that the interface is not consistent all over the place; The account manager portal and the Virtual Office portal have two completely different styles.

The system is extremely user-friendly. It is the closest software I have used to the "Apple" brand. What I mean by that is the setup, hookup just makes sense. When I have an agent with complications, I am able to help them troubleshoot from afar. I have never been unable to figure the issue out if any.

In the time I have used 8x8 Virtual Office, the core system has been up and running almost flawlessly though we do have a slight performance degradation from time to time as is expected of cloud software. The one recurring issue for us is that the fax connection is not always functional for outbound messages. We usually have to retry three or four times to get the fax to connect reliably to the destination machine. Once connected, it's smooth sailing.

None of the features that are available slow down the application. The reports (even the ones with hundreds of records) complete very quickly and the web interface as well as the mobile application never struggle to load or complete a task. The analytics will sometimes take some time to reflect the online status of users but it is to be expected due to connection speeds.

They are fully functioning and easily manageable, crucial to our company as we have dispatch and office administration and are a medical facility. If our phone lines go down, people could be impacted by it in a very negative way.

inContact only allows specific users to contact them for support. Even though I use the product daily and it accounts for a large amount of my workload, I still have to contact an authorized user to create an incident. These users are managers and their schedules are very busy. This can result in delays in incidents being opened and resolved.

Alternatives Considered

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

We only did a web search for other companies and found this service to fit all our needs, especially being able to get a BAA to help our HIPPA and HITECH compliance. It was over three years ago so I do not recall what others we looked at, but we did a general web search.

Interactive IntelligenceCisco Express and Enterprise. InContact CXOne is very solid as a cloud platform and has great ease of use. However, it has areas of improvements to make it better, especially the Engage side of the company should be taken out of the stone age. Look at Calabrio's reliance and support as a benchmark for recordings.

We've had periods where our organization has grown a considerable amount and we have had no issues in scaling our communications with 8x8. The number of possible extensions that we can use is far more than we expect to go through in a very long time. The only complaint that I have is a very minor inconvenience for me where I have to download activation codes for each phone. I would prefer to have the phones automatically activated as soon as they are plugged in.

Return on Investment

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

  • When I am the only person covering the phone, I can get messages or calls anywhere and anytime and make sure that they are forwarded to the right person. This ensures that appointments are kept and employees don't waste time on appointments that get canceled.
  • When someone is out on leave, it is convenient to forward their calls to someone else to make sure customers get attention when needed.
  • Text capabilities allow our patients to contact us promptly for appointment cancellations. We are then able to fill those times with other patients who need to get in.
Renee Allard | TrustRadius Reviewer

NICE inContact CXone

  • InContact has helped to expand the services which our company offers to clients in allowing us to offer greater flexibility in both type of contacts supported as well as in the hours that employees are able to be available.
  • InContact has also enhanced our company's ability to hire a larger volume of remote employees who work from the comfort of their own home offices, resulting in greater flexibility and ability to better schedule employees based on client needs/hours.
