Aspect Unified IP

If you are a call center looking to take advantage of agents being able to work in both an inbound and outbound capacity at the same time I think Aspect is a no-brainer. There is no CTI connectivity to deal with. It is all 100% seamless between all call types (inbound, dialer, manual). The tools are very intuitive, and the backend reporting tables are easy to use/query. If you are a smaller inbound only shop or even a small blend shop this product might be cost-prohibitive especially if it is an on-premise solution. In those cases, their cloud-based solution might make the most sense.

Twilio's SMS is very well suited to interact with customers via text messaging. While we have seen younger generation being happier with texting, we are also seeing texting picking up across all demographics. Twilio will generate/increase trust in situations when customers require rapid response or want to be informed of their account/status changes. Twilio's SMS is not the best for sending links to files, getting electronic signatures via links or sending large images etc. Expect IT to be involved and ensure that IT is given adequate information about your current AND future plans to gain the most out of Twilio SMS.

Pros

Aspect Unified IP

  • When I administer and support this software for a few months, I can comment that, without a doubt, it is good software to start a call center with.
  • The main thing is to indicate that the software can be configured to have high availability with several servers that will help keep the service active.
  • You can count on several telephone lines that will be centralized in the appearance system.
  • The big advantage is that you have call recording and live video, you can also locate the video recordings of all the calls.

  • Easy to see my team in one place, when they log in and out and what call status they are in.
  • Twilio is a simple, user friendly way to log in and out of work activities.
  • Excellent services and support.
  • The omnichannel feature which allows agents to get request from all channels.

Cons

Aspect Unified IP

  • It needs build-in seamlessness of Channel - Omni channel is still not available
  • Aspect services are costly
  • Need to add AIML in Aspect

Twilio

  • Authy does not support the "push button" multi-factor authentication from your application's native apps. This means if you want to use Authy, you still need to use TOTP based codes.
  • Not really a shortcoming of Authy, but it does nothing to help with multi-factor authentication using text messages - those are still sent to your platform's messaging app.
  • Authy doesn't always display how much time is left before your current token expires, making it difficult to know how much time you have left to enter the current code.

Twilios large peer community on the internet , easy to access Twitter tutorials provided by Twilio itself and available API references makes using Twilio an easy experience. Sincerely, I do not think anyone can get lost in the course of using Twilio, at least from my own personal experience and that of junior engineers and developers on my team.

I have not had to communicate with Twilio support in the last 3 years but my past experience with them has been very positive. They replied to my previous requests promptly and kept me well informed to resolve my inquiries.With their documentation that's available, I hardly imagine why anyone would need to contact support since it's all there in a concise and easy to understand format. It would probably take you longer to type out a support ticket than to just open their doc websites.

I have not spent any time recently doing a detailed analysis of other vendors to comfortably answer this question. I will say that the last time I checked, the ability to have all 3 call types (inbound,outbound,and manual) managed in one convenient seamless platform was not available which is very important to me.

To be honest, I don't know of any Twilio SMS competitors that have the robust transactional SMS that Twilio SMS has. I know of a few marketing SMS platforms such as Textedly but that's more of an email blast (or SMS blast) to your list then something targeted based on user action inside our application that Twilio SMS can provide. On top of that, in Twilio SMS I can push them through my own segmentation and sequences programmatically to even make the marketing SMS's more targetted compared to some of the pure blast competitors.

Return on Investment

Aspect Unified IP

  • My financial control has been much more controlled.
  • I identify in my indicators everything that has changed before and after having the service.
  • The results obtained can be appreciated just by checking my profits.
  • The objectives set according to this application and the annual cost is being adequate.

Twilio

  • Twilio WebRTC allowed us to move a bulk of our communication to the cloud, giving us a lot of visibility on how we were communicating with our customers.
  • It also gave us analytics on how much time users spent on communicating with each other over calls and helped us build features around it.
  • Twilio became the center of all communication on our platform. From chat messages to phone calls, it powered everything.
