Bandwidth

Bandwidth covers the majority of areas where we had customers. However, there are still some areas we would have like to see them cover for calls. They cover more areas than our other carriers, but they did surprise us from time to time by an inability to be able to deliver call transport.

MessageBird

MessageBird seems to me a very useful tool for the times we are living [in] and the paradigm shift in corporate communications in all industries. It is very good at exchanging information and plain text. It works with some difficulty for sending images and other functionalities that the real WhatsApp application has, but the client on the other side does not know about this and sometimes sends information such as location that it is not possible to obtain.

Pros

Bandwidth

  • Bandwidth has great customer service. They are all friendly and super helpful.
  • They are innovative and constantly updating their APIs, UIs, and products they offer.
  • Their UI and API are user friendly and intuitive.

MessageBird

  • Users can transfer a client to another user without a particular permission
  • It allows you to control the communication of our agents and their activity.
  • It gives us a feeling of closeness to our clients who, due to their work activity, cannot answer the phone

Cons

Bandwidth

  • Their dashboard is lacking. We would love to see some additional graphing components, live traffic views, etc.
  • Their E911 infrastructure is still separate, making things a bit complex to provision endpoints and manage them.
  • SMS/MMS is a little behind competitors like Twilio, but still usable and very reliable.

MessageBird

  • It does not accept all the functions of whatsapp
  • It has no integration with the Pipedrive CRM
  • Sometimes it doesn't work in real time, leaving clients waiting in an invisible "queue"

Alternatives Considered

Bandwidth

Their pricing is tough to beat, the reliability is great. And then add a few more positive things, like the tools and customer support, and that makes it a no-brainer.

MessageBird

Regarding WhatsApp Business, it is a very useful tool because templates can be programmed for the entire organization and clients can also be referred to other users in order to decongest an agent who can become quite busy. Otherwise there would be no way to serve you through two agents and you could have a bad end user or customer experience.

Return on Investment

Bandwidth

  • We found Bandwidth to be very easy to work with and they grew as we grew. Their pricing was very competitive and they were always willing to take another look at their pricing for us.

MessageBird

  • Quick contact with collection clients
  • Delivers the feeling of instantaneous
  • It is good to start the relationship, but continue it through the call center.
