Avaya OneCloud UCaaS

The best scenarios for Avaya Business Communications Manager include large single location operations. Also - large interoffice operations. The hub-and-spoke arrangement with one large central office a large number of smaller offices would also be handled well. We do it all the time. As for where it would be less appropriate that would be in smaller locations - but - Avaya has appropriate alternative for those.

Cisco Unified Contact Center

Large and complex customer environments where the call flows integrate with multiple back-end systems within a customer's Data Center are a good fit for UCCE. It also caters well for customers with a widely distributed workforce that are connected via good networking links or have remote workers. Small contact centers with simplistic call flows and no future need for complexity like Biometrics and the like would do better from choosing a contact center such as Contact Centre Express or Webex CC as an example.

Cons

Avaya OneCloud UCaaS

  • I would like to see more of their in office communications systems. Right now they seem outpaced by competitors even though their core services are superior.
  • The interface could be updated a little. There is a lot of interaction that the operator needs to go through that could be automated.
Alfred Brock | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cisco Unified Contact Center

  • The Enterprise version Cisco Unified Contact Center has a lot of sunk cost involved and harder to support due to the expertise involved.
  • Licensing and ongoing support is also a huge undertaking. Licensing is hard to understand for Cisco in general. When you have created a certification for understanding Cisco Licensing maybe that is a hint to simplify your licensing instead.
  • The Express Unified Contact Center version is getting outdated and has capacity limitations. The Enterprise version is a huge undertaking to implement and get approved cost wise.

There are few times that we have not been able to take advantage of the tool, but those moments are related to the bandwidth of each person in [their] home. Those who have low signal cannot access meetings on the platform smoothly.

Once set up and working it is a solid platform but it does take quite a bit of up front effort from a team of knowledgeable technical staff. The script editor and management tools are pretty intuitive and the Web Reskilling tool allows agents to be re-skilled on the fly so that is useful. The MIS tool is okay, but if you really want a good MI presentation layer then you need to invest in an add-on.

It seems like anytime we have some issue it takes support a long time to figure out. It really just seems very lacking overall. Most of the time the phone technicians seem to have no clue what we are talking about and they have to go research and get back to us.

For call centers that don't mind a little manual work and do not want integration to other products, this solution is great! Lots of data is available and the management of call center agents is easily done with the Cisco Unified Contact Center application.

Alternatives Considered

Avaya OneCloud UCaaS

The product pricing sits in the mid-high position compared to its competitor. It provides the most features when compared to the competitors. It has excellent support which can only be matched by the more pricey competitors, however, the lack of 24x7 support can be a challenge especially when your support comes from a country with a different time zone.

Cisco Unified Contact Center

Since [Cisco Unified Contact Center] UCC has been around forever, there has been little to no effort to enhance UCCE/X as core platforms. Chances are good they will be sunset sooner than later. CVP has potential as an on prem solution. The future is Webex Contact Center as long as it can keep up with platforms in the CCaaS Magic Quadrant
