Acarda Sales Technologies
I think that Acarda is a fantastic tool for any company that is perhaps not selling software, not offering technical support, has minimal technical needs internally, and wants a tool that just works well. We have had issues with support and dropped calls from other outbound and VOIP systems, Acarda was a really solid platform. I would imagine that the average Sales, Billing and Support Team of a small business or StartUp would find a lot to love here.

Our company is a startup that is just starting to get wholesale customers. When we realized our customers needed support using our products, we set up a Contact Center via Amazon Connect. It has been very useful in allowing us to scale up very quickly, and provide services to our company as if we were a large corporation.

  • On reports and analytics, [I feel] Amazon Connect is slightly behind, and it should be perfected.
  • [In my experience], Amazon Connect lacks social platform integration, which is convenient and resourceful currently.
  • [I believe] Amazon Connect should include a queue management feature, for the call centers and customer help.

I am not super familiar with the competitors because we moved away from this style of support soon after adopting Acarda, but I had no complaints while using it.

We worked through a Request For Proposal to check different Contact Center platforms, we evaluated Talkdesk, Amazon Connect and Genesys PureConnect, all of them as a SaaS platforms, and trying to go to a pay per use model. The best option for us was Amazon Connect, with a pure pay per use model according to the minutes of use, instead of the number of agents. As our goal was to automate the maximum number of contacts, we didn't want a license model based in the number of agents
