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.

Genesys contact center suite is super powerful and can do anything a medium or lager contact needs however the cost is tremendous. It would not be feasible for smaller businesses. It would be nice to see a smaller suite of apps that would accommodate small to medium contact centers.

Pros

Acarda Outbound

  • Simple Setup.
  • Great Support Team.
  • Never dropped calls.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Genesys Engage

  • VHT as a stand alone model can be easily plugged into to the current call routing with minimal changes and it works like charm.
  • Platform SDKs are a powerful tool that help integrate with other third party solutions or to build custom made applications.
  • The whole routing solution is amazing . With user friendly composer, you have the option of building both VRUs and routing strategies. And, they are very easy to deploy.
  • The level of details for report customization is another strong point.

Cons

Acarda Outbound

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

Genesys Engage

  • Difficult to build complete end-to-end automation of deployment.
  • Genesys Framework Alerting functionality is flexible, but overly complicated to manage. Needs ability to mass deploy alerts.
  • SIP server feature functionality feels limited and requires using router to build in what in many switches are basic functions.

It's the best product with customizations that fit our organisation. It is easy to upscale and is innovative. It has easy integrations with different back end and front end platforms and off the shelf integration of VoIP with a number of SBCs.

Overall, from a customer perspective and also an agent perspective, it is very easy to use Genesys Engage's platform. The Agent Desktop and Genesys WDE are good. Usability is high and I would consider it an easy to use product and easy to adopt from this perspective.

There's definitely room for improvement. I would have love to see the chat functionality work more frequently. The level of expertise has diminished over the years. I understand that this in part has to do with the number of new products that has been introduced, but should not be an excuse for the lack of readiness.

Implementation on Genesys Engage is rather complex. Implementation needs specialized Genesys Professionals and resources, in-house or contractors, who are able to implement the platform and be able to integrate with other in-house or COTS systems. The design and discovery phase is also very important at the beginning.

Alternatives Considered

Acarda Outbound

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.

Our original call center routing was done through Avaya. We still use it on the back end and from what I can tell, Genesys vastly improves upon their offering. We are able to do so much more with the customization that Genesys allows. Anything you can think of, you can probably do with a Genesys solution.

The Interactive Intelligence SIP based contact center platform has broken through the barriers of "board based" technology to processor based limits on scalability. This means their CIC premise or cloud platform can be engineered to support agent counts into the thousands.

Return on Investment

Acarda Outbound

  • Easy to get started with.
  • Great workflow, especially for people starting in the industry.
  • Helped us meet our daily call goals.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Genesys Engage

  • Improved customer experience for contact center applications
  • Enhances internal and external communications through Presence Management
  • Minimal investment in hardware since CIC is primarily a software solution that runs on industry standard Windows servers
  • Can be deployed as a "cloud" solution or an on premise solution with basically the same feature set regardless of deployment
  • Provides 100% application redundancy in a fail-over situation that also supports full geographic redundancy
