Aspect Unified IP is perfect to handle multiple outbound dialing campaigns, with tools that allow you to configure how customers must be reached, call them at different phone numbers by the time of the day, set priorities when dialing, or gather information about all running campaigns in dashboards in real-time.

Solution is extremely agile and flexible. The new generation of containerized solution would be a game changer since it brings the ease of deployment and ability to get the innovations to a new total different place. I believe it is really hard to find in the competition who would have something similar or even close

Pros
Alvaria, Inc (Aspect Software + Noble Systems)
  • Integrates inbound and outbound call routing in one platform, allowing agents to work in a seamless blend mode between all call types (inbound, predictive, manual).
  • Allows you to associate an account number with every agent phone call, the call type, and the reccording ID giving you the critical datapoints necessary to research, put together a customers experience from a telephony perspective, etc.
  • Create agent templates to streamline agent setup reducing the potential for admins to configure an agent incorrectly, placing them in services they aren't skilled for and vice versa.

  • 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

  • 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.

Aspect Unified IP is very competent to handle most customers' needs in the contact center and it delivers what is promised. The only negative aspect is the costs of services, maintenance and professional services, too expensive.

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.

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.

We had evaluated Avaya. It was pretty good as well. However, we wanted a more software driven solution. Aspect also was able to give better results in our Proof of Concept.

For a similar contact center structure, I find Genesys products are faster to produce outcomes, and fast to respond (loading, changing screens...). However, in terms of user interface, I do prefer the way NICE did things there. Coming from an agent background, I find that the NICE agent interface is more visually appealing and offers more flexibility (parameters for agent exceptions).

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
Alvaria, Inc (Aspect Software + Noble Systems)
  • As stated before, we have been using UIP for over a decade now. Prior to this tool we had agents logging into Avaya for inbound, and using CTI fuctionality to bounce the agent back and forth between inbound and any predictive campaigns. By moving to Aspect it allowed us to streamline that process, reduce agent downtime, lost efficiency, while at the same time consolidationg all of our call center telephony data into one central location allowing us to easily track a customers telephony experience over any period of time.
  • The only negative impact is due to the upgrade schedule that has made for some interesting challenges forcing us to utilize IT resources that could have been used on more critical corporate projects. These upgrades might not be as big of a deal for any company out there that does not have a lot of integration with Aspect such as custom reporting, data loads, API hooks, etc.
