    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.

    I would recommend Nectar Desk if you are going to launch it across an entire organization. By launching for only one department, it has been extremely difficult to not have the connectivity we want across the entire company.

    Nectar Desk

    • Customizing Multiple Ring Groups: Allows for different call routing options depending on what phone number is dialed by a caller
    • Agent Login Tracking & Analytics: I can see minute by minute details of my team's login status and better understand how they're using their time
    • IVR Set Up: I can set up and edit/change IVR settings with the click of a few buttons, it's super easy!
    • Call History Tracking: I can easily filter and view all calls for the day to see what was inbound vs outbound, how many calls were handled by each agent, how many calls were missed, how many were outside of business hours, what the dispositions for each call were, and MORE. The Call History analytics are GREAT.

    Cons

    Acarda Outbound

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

    Nectar Desk

    • When a caller becomes assigned to an agent, SMS notifications are only sent to that agent. This is difficult for our call center manager to monitor if the team is handling all SMS replies efficiently and effectively.
    • Because Nectar Desk is a chrome-based calling software, we are limited in accessing the platform. Due to the ongoing pandemic, this presented a challenge in making sure that all agents' at-home computers were capable of running the software.

    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.

    Return on Investment

    Acarda Outbound

    • As the marketing agency that implemented this software for a client, we have 100% insight into call performance. Our client previously throughout random numbers, was always guessing on his team's performance, and now we have actual insight into how the intake team is truly performing—we know 100% of the inbound calls they make, how many outbound calls are made in a day, and how much time is spent 'idle'. This has allowed our client to hire the appropriate number of call center staff based on actual data and has allowed us to shift our marketing budget to focus on driving the right callers.
