Acarda Outbound

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.

Well suited:Environments that don't require texting, and where users are highly technical and able to troubleshoot on your own. We've found that we need an internal tools manager AND an expert on each sales/support team to successfully onboard new team members and ensure current team members know how to use the tool.Not well-suited
  1. Organizations that rely on texting.
  2. Organizations with low tech literacy on their teams.
  3. Organizations with little ability to manage tools like this.

Five9

  • Availability- Five9 has servers in multiple regions and an entire team monitoring 24/7 to make sure we do not have down time.
  • Scalability- We can quickly increase our licenses up and down based on the needs of our clients.
  • Security- We do not have to worry about security.
  • Quality of voice- we are able to use Five9's soft phones and sustain a high quality of voice.
  • Single code set and cloud based software as a service. Competitors we looked at were typically more of a collection of applications.
  • Speed/Ease of use- We can manage Five9 with a single administrator vs an IT department.
  • Compliance- for outbound dialing compliance is built in. We also use their TCPA solution for dialing cellular phones.
  • Future proof: Five9 continues to invest in making their virtual contact center better. This in turn makes our service offering stronger.

Cons

Acarda Outbound

  • Lacked the level of integrations we needed with other software.
  • That's it. It was great otherwise.

  • Java based desktop application is a pain to keep updated.
  • The user interface for the agent desktop application is clunky and outdated. It could use a facelift.
  • The help center for documentation isn't well organized and the documentation needs substantial editing.

Five9's Customer Support team is also based in Manila Philippines, thus turnaround email response times for our reported issues are great for our requirements. Their CS agents also facilitate mobile calls to followup on outstanding issues and operate on a 24/7 schedule. We've also had experience working with the senior tech agents to investigate recurring issues to completion.

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.

While we use Invoca and LeadsPedia for more granular tracking and data, Five9 has always sort of been the end all be all. If it's in Five9, it's pretty concrete that the info in Five9 is the correct information. It doesn't matter which campaign a call came through, if it came through at all, it will be seen in Five9.
