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 Multicloud CX (formerly Genesys Engage)

Genesys Engage is a great solution to Contact Centers. If you manage voice interactions or multimedia interactions, Genesys Engage will have a solution for your needs. All of their solutions are tested and have been validated by several companies around the globe. It's prepared to handle loads of traffic and all their solutions are scalable if needed. It can be multi-site or single site, so it fits your company needs around the globe. So if you have a medium - large organization, either single or multi-site, with any kind of media, Genesys Engage is the Contact Center solution that can fit your needs.
In case you have a small organization, I wouldn't recommend Genesys Engage since it can need quite [a lot] of infrastructure. Instead I would go for the Genesys Cloud solution, which it takes away the infrastructure fee and have a more all-in-one feeling, giving you the chance to acquire new features on demand.

Pros

Acarda Outbound

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

Genesys Multicloud CX (formerly 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 Multicloud CX (formerly Genesys Engage)

  • Genesys needs to pick up the pace with application upgrades. We see more and more issues with Genesys applications falling behind the operating systems versions. We need more apps to be ready for the latest server OC models. There is a lag.
  • There seems to be constant unrest with the management application platform, CME, SCI, Genesys administrator, GAX, then GAX plugins, then a move away from plugins. We would like one stable management platform that encompasses ALL aspects of management within the contact center.
  • Real-time reporting deficiencies with Genesys pulse web. this application cannot live up to CCPulse with respect to flexibility of views. Pulse web was a plugin now it's not a plugin any longer. constant movement, we finally get pulse web plugin onto production, 6 months later these something supposedly better.

Additionally, we feel that only Genesys Engage can meet and exceed our business needs and requirements.

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 are occasional failures, but distributed and High Availability features work well when architected, installed, and configured properly. Thoroughly reading and understanding system documentation is a must.

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.

Good training, but on limited locations. You can almost only follow trainings in europ in the UK and in Germany. Uk location is relatively difficult to get to and on a exppensive location. The content of the training is good, supplied training material is okay, but sometimes a bit outdated. When you follow a training it is most likely because of a recent purchase which is uasually the latest version.

Interesting webinars on relevant topic are being provided regularly. Th e webinars a often provided by Genesys and hosted by a very experienced product owner. In many occasions a customer is invited to share his / her experiences and best practices. Webinars can be watched at a later time for your convenience.

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.

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.

When it comes to call routing, call center administration, deployment, scalability, serviceability, and data integration, Genesys is a step above Cisco Contact Center Enterprise. With a platform that still requires you to 'extract' logs when you need to looks at core routing decisions and archaic style tools to manage configuration data, developing and improving the UCCE platform just doesn't seems as important to Cisco as doing so does to Genesys. On the other hand, Genesys has along way to go in the interaction recording/feedback space. Genesys Interaction Recording builds on it already existing GVP platform and is so tightly integrated that your call recording platform becomes part of your actual call path - so if you lose your recording system - you loose your call? Even active integrations provided by other platforms remain a party outside the actual call. Integration with SIP REC would be a great path for Genesys to look at in that realm

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.
