Broadvoice

Having the Broadvoice B-system came thru for us when the internet went down at our location. We were able to login into the Broadvoice systems from our phones and forward all calls to our cell phones. This allowed our contact with our customers to go interrupted. This is seen as a great advantage to our company so we could continue business and keep our customers happy.

FluentCloud

I have tried a few programs over the years to record and track calls and this one is by far the best. Easy to use and more functions than I will ever use. I love the reporting options. There was one particular scenario that comes to mind where I was glad to have FluentCloud. I had a client that was really really angry, cussing, yelling, threatening suit, etc. because he had gone to an appointment almost 2 hours away and when he got there the woman told him that we forced her to schedule the appointment, that we were pushy and rude and she just wanted to get off the phone. Thankfully I found the recording and was able to prove to him that she DID schedule the appointment but she also picked the day and time, answered all of the questions and took absolutely no persuasion at all. Basically it was an easy close. The client couldn't believe it and still to this day he is my client.

Pros

Broadvoice

  • The ease of call transfer.
  • Ability to have calls forwarded through the b-hive app keeps people from being tied to their desk phone.
  • Great customer service.
  • Integration with Salesforce.

FluentCloud

  • FluentCloud is excellent at customer service, their staff is always helpful and responsive. I have never had a typical service experience where first diagnosis is always the user's system. Their engineering staff is also hands on, I've been so grateful to have Brian's help in selecting the right router - he even configured it for us.
  • Ease of use, the system is quite easy to use even beyond adding extensions, users, new DID phone numbers and complex routing queues. It's also easy to configure feature codes and program them so users can perform multi-step tasks with a few key punches on their dial pad. We use feature codes to allow callers to switch their caller ID to our DID numbers that are local to the area on the fly.
  • Robust features: ability for whisper coaching, barge in and a dashboard to visually check the status of each user.

Cons

Broadvoice

  • Make B-Hive easer to navigate.
  • Faxing features could use more work.
  • Improve network through the phone. Have issues when the phone has problems; the computer can't connect to the network when it's going through it.

  • There are times when calls are really garbled, there was a couple months there that we couldn't listen to any of the recordings because they were not decipherable.
  • They changed something recently where now when you are listening to a recording and you hit pause it takes you back to the beginning when you start again rather than just continuing where you left off. That is a pain in the butt because I have to pause quite often for interruptions.

At this time there our research has found that feature for feature there isn't a better solution for our needs at this cost point. We have had great success and don't foresee a need to change

At first, it seemed "daunting" to use but that is very much the same with a lot of things that are new. Broadvoice supplies great Quick Sheets to main topics, such as Feature Codes, Flow Charts, User Guides, which are easy to read and follow. Once it is used often, it is easy to understand, follow, and make changes to fit your company

Alternatives Considered

Broadvoice

This has really been our first experience using an app such as b-hive organization-wide for our phone system, so I don't have much to stack up against it. I just really appreciate the ease of using our original phone system via this app without having to go to some other product/service.

I have used others besides what is listed below but FluentCloud is by far the best I have used, especially when it comes to tracking and reporting call volume and production of our calls. Being a call center that is production based on call volume having something like FluentCloud is essential.

Return on Investment

Broadvoice

  • The cost per user is less than our previous provider.
  • The flexibility that VOIP provides allows for easy in opening different locations and staying connected.
  • Integration with Salesforce will be a huge step forward for our current CRM.
Kevin J. Campisano, CPA | TrustRadius Reviewer

FluentCloud

  • FluentCloud is a good value, we have done extensive cost comparison and the feature set vs price is very favorable.
  • The lack of a contract and ability to dynamically add or remove extensions as needed is great, we only pay for what we use.
