Appcues
It is well suited for SaaS products or services that have a highly complex user interface. Through Appcues, you can ensure that people discover all the existing and new features and make them understand the value of your product as soon as possible to address the evergreen issue of churn. But if your user interface is really messed up, you should change the product itself instead of using a tool like Appcues to explain everything on the screen.

As mentioned above, Small & Mid level contact center make use of Genesys Cloud CX features well. The predictive routing is one useful feature for them. However Large Scale businesses require segregation & multiple routing & queueing options in Genesys Cloud CX. Some customers has budget constraints as the platform's most comprehensive features come at an extra cost.

Pros
Appcues
  • As a whole, Appcues is very easy to use.
  • You can build templates to easily style future modal windows and tooltips.
  • They have great customer service! Any time I've had a question our support rep always gets back to me with solutions.

  • We have a project, for example, in a solar energy company, where we do all the customer support services of the solar energy platform from contracting, new products, SAC, and so on. With Genesys Cloud CX, we are able to put the service platform into operation on the contractor's website, where the customer enters the site and he already starts the interaction, he can finish a contract and everything, all on the same platform. For example, if he enters by chat and he comes back by email, it doesn't matter, he can follow and continue with his interactions in the same way.

Cons
Appcues
  • We were extremely surprised that there are not any Appcues used in Appcues. The app is pretty easy to use, once you figure out how to use it. There were not any type of tutorials when we logged in that quickly walked through how to setup a flow.
  • Appcues has lots of support articles, however they are almost so numerous that it was hard to find simple onboarding documentation that we found useful.
  • The different tooltips and product actions are great, but being able to customize the different cues a little bit more by changing sizes and aspect ratios could be an improvement.

  • We can see the bot and the digital side is growing at the moment, but there are still a couple of gaps that we think about. So as I say, every customer comes through our bot, but we don't have an easy way of exporting what they're actually telling us. We can see a snippet throughout the day and we can retrieve, I believe, 250 of the most recent things, but we get about 3,000 calls a day. It's a snapshot of what we're actually getting. It's the analytics piece that we'd like to see enhanced a bit.

The upcoming upgrades working with Genesys Cloud and Salesforce are very exciting. Even though we don't use Genesys Cloud to the fullest extent it can be used (we just migrated a year ago), when these upgrades roll out, I am very excited to see what it can do to for our agents. I think they are going to be very impressed

Everything is very good. It is very useful, friendly to users and it makes our work easier than what we expected. I think that I don't need any help from someone on how to use Genesys coz basically they will directly feed it to you without any hassle on using it.

Support does indeed resolve the issue but they seem to be really slow and I have to stay on them to get my ticket handled. Everyone I have interacted with is very professional and pleasant. Other than being slow its been a good experience

I have taken the preparatory course for Genesys Cloud Certification. I must say that it is a good training for administrators and analysts. The bibliography is very clear and is easy to identify the topics, which are conveniently separated. It is, in my opinion, mandatory for those who want to exercise the position of Genesys Cloud platform administrators.

The support engineer that I partnered with during the implementation was exceptional. Every element of the process was done together and the end result of the efforts to grow the knowledge to be able to hand over at the end enabled a pretty smooth transition.

Alternatives Considered
Appcues
It has a much, much better user interface, better customer care, and of course better pricing. This along with the fact that they were very accommodating for our use case ensured we went ahead with Appcues.

So we came from Avaya where we were using their Oceania PR platform, which was similar to this but nowhere near as good. It was actually very poorly run when we started looking at moving away. We had to narrow down between Genesys and NICE. So I like both platforms but Genesys, as an overall platform, just made more sense for us.

Professional services are definitely much more experienced than the support teams, and the price for their services is very fair. I wish that the support team could help answer simple questions about work that the PSS team does, however, so that we do not have to use our SOW for simple Q&A emails.

Return on Investment
Appcues
  • Appcues has allowed us to quickly deploy user help features that target specific users, audiences, even customers with very little effort.

  • Cost savings-wise, I think our abandonment rate has actually gone down drastically with moving to Genesys Cloud CX.
  • First-call resolution has gone up quite a bit by using Genesys Cloud CX. Even the number of tickets, to be honest, has come down. We have to handle on a day-to-day basis, which is cost savings by itself, which which leads to agent productivity. So all of those are beneficial.
