Great for conference calls internationally. Connectivity is great and it's user friendly. Great for organizations looking to communicate globally, and also for sales teams. Not the best fit for smaller organizations as there are cheaper and easier to implement solutions out there if the requirement is just for internal communication

CIC is best suited for business models that rely on heavily leverage Data Integration especially one like ours that require real-time and high-speed data access for billing and customer integration.CIC is not well suited for small organizations < 50 where they are only answering phones in the course of doing business VS. the business is the phone.

Pros

Avaya OneCloud CCaaS

  • Strengths of Avaya include the ability to answer incoming calls in a convenient format for employees.
  • The use of Avaya proves the user-friendly design and a way for employees to adjust settings in a clear and concise manner to adjust for his or her preferences.
  • Avaya also allows the employee to transfer and conference calls in an easy drag-and-drop method and is very user-friendly.
  • The functionality of Avaya allows for the virtual employee to log in, choose various auxiliaries chosen by your company to ensure schedule adherence and maintain corroboration with other applications and software programs.

Genesys PureConnect

  • Purely Software Based System: On Microsoft OS. It is an all software-based system making it easy to manage, integrate and interface with other systems
  • One Vendor: All modules, IVR, ACD, Dialer, WFM are from one vendor. So, no compatibility and latency issues at all.
  • Superb Notifier Service: You don't have to restart any process or service for a change to take effect.

Cons

Avaya OneCloud CCaaS

  • Avaya could use some improvement in moving calls off the system when they have arrived at a far destination. This is a technical point and will not be often encountered by users or most technicians and really is no fault of Avaya but crossing over into local telephone systems around the world would be a great advantage.
  • The methods for interacting with some of the menus are rather involved. The system is highly complex but at this time it is mature enough to start bringing all the control features under one roof rather than through three separate interfaces.
Alfred Brock | TrustRadius Reviewer

Genesys PureConnect

  • Licensing can be challenging and very expensive.
  • Client templates are hard to administer and are built very different than the rest of the functionality.
  • Web desktop has been slow to come along and include all the features.
  • Optimizer is very sub-par product.

I am really not the decision maker on this subject but given the cost of the investment in Avaya, I do not see the company not renewing the use of Avaya. The new licensing model no longer requires expensive upgrades to stay current with new features added to the system and really helps with the cost of investment.

We are so embedded on Pure Connect that we like to progress with it. For instance, we are looking into ways to provide different solutions to our customers, help our business to succeed, and work in a better CX.
One of the biggest advantages is that all is in one platform.

I find Avaya easy to use but I am not a beginner. I think it is much more difficult for beginners unless the administrator has some basic programming skills. The system is getting more difficult to use but I enjoy learning and haven't found myself stumped yet.

PureConnect is well suited for organizations who don't want to deploy dozens of servers for a call center. It is very appropriate if you want to be full IP : from the career connexion (SIP trunk) to the phone set. It is less appropriate if your organization is divided into many small teams and you have to manage hundreds of different teams.

The application itself uses a hub and spoke model that can help isolate errors in one section of the application from the rest, creating a much more stable overall program. Of all of the outages that we've had with our contact center platform, I can count on one hand how often it was truly a Genesys issue rather than a network issue, server issue or issue with a platform relied upon for an integration (web services, db calls).

Some of the client applications take a bit of time on initial load, but with the move towards web based applications that issue is alleviated. You can tell that effort really isn't putting into the desktop apps any longer and that the client development effort is being put into bringing Interaction Connect closer to feature parity with the desktop (and bringing wholly new features to Connect).As far as IVR operations, web service calls, database operations: they all operate reasonably.

I give it this rating because the support services of Avaya have proven to be reliable when needed. Great feedback for our queries has always been received from the support agents. 24/7 availability of support, which is very essential as our Call Center department also functions this way, therefore, the knowledge and technical support we require is always available to us.

Some cases are resolved quickly others are taking longer and the reseller sometimes has to chase support several times and explain the issue seen several times. While being a direct customer before, I recognise this and it seems that when a case moves to another engineer they don’t read the previous case notes or don’t understand what has been done. This, from a customers perspective, slows down resolution times.

I liked the setup of the whole class. The instructor knew the topic well enough to answer questions from entry level to a more advanced one.
Instructor encouraged participation of the whole class and was able to engage every one. Also provided "real live" examples so everyone can relate to it.

The online training itself is good. You are provided resources and can self study to a certain point, but the pacing always felt off. Either snails pace or like trying to drink from a fire hose. I think this easily could have had to do with course material and my personal preparations, though. I would say my main gripe is that since the acquisition the team responsible for actually booking training is very unresponsive and often not knowledgeable about the courses they offer. Booking my last training was a real chore.

Don't try to go the perfect solution as a first target. Work on answer the more needs with a simple solution. Then analyse and try again to answer the most needs with adding a bit if complexity only if require. No needs to customise straight from the beginning or deployment takes too long.

Alternatives Considered

Avaya OneCloud CCaaS

There are other vendors out there, Cisco, Mitel, Shortel, etc.... We also sell Panasonic systems. Panasonic fills a gap/price point for the businesses that wants to rely on us to manage their phone system, and get their foot in the door with a phone system. The Panasonic from an administration side can be rough on a system administrator trying to do their own MAC work. Cisco and the others all have their benefits, and drawbacks. Each have their own pricing and feature models, so it is really a wash in a matter of speaking until you get into the realm of support, licensing, and integrating with 3rd party vendors.If you do need to rely on a 3rd party vendor to integrate with your AVAYA solution, if the vendor is a Dev Connect partner you know it will work. Avaya spends weeks with vendors testing and creating documentation on how to integrate a multitude of solutions with their partners. Other competitors are lacking in this department.

Call Manager, you had to buy all the components that are out of the box for PureConnect. The licensing model is more expensive on the Cisco side vs the Genesys PureConnect side. Lastly was on the Cisco side since you have to connect/integrate all the components on the cisco side you have to have so many vendors to install those parts. This drives the cost up even more so it was not worth going that route for our organization.

Genesys PureConnect's core and adjunct model allows for fairly easy growth in satellite locations via off site session managers, remote located media servers, remote content servers, etc to allow you to spread the infrastructure out while not pushing as much network traffic to your core data centers.
