I didn't personally hate working with Finesse as an end-user, but the frequent bugs and crashes were troublesome. While the frequency wasn't daily or weekly, it was enough to be memorable and difficult to work through. At times the software would crash across the board and take 15 minutes to recover, which pending call volumes, could be highly problematic. When it was working I had few issues or complaints.

Solution is extremely agile and flexible. The new generation of containerized solution would be a game changer since it brings the ease of deployment and ability to get the innovations to a new total different place. I believe it is really hard to find in the competition who would have something similar or even close

Pros
Cisco
  • Keep detail record of the agent and supervisor activity.
  • Help to create agent and give them access to different teams and different skill groups.
  • Allows the supervisor to keep a track record of the agent different states like ready, not ready, in call, [etc...]

  • VHT as a stand alone model can be easily plugged into to the current call routing with minimal changes and it works like charm.
  • Platform SDKs are a powerful tool that help integrate with other third party solutions or to build custom made applications.
  • The whole routing solution is amazing . With user friendly composer, you have the option of building both VRUs and routing strategies. And, they are very easy to deploy.
  • The level of details for report customization is another strong point.

Cons
Cisco
  • While adding skill group to the agent a direct find and assign button should be there.
  • In [the] case of multiple skill groups to be added there is a chance of ambiguity [and] different colour code can be used to distinguish.
  • User interface can be improvised.

  • Genesys needs to pick up the pace with application upgrades. We see more and more issues with Genesys applications falling behind the operating systems versions. We need more apps to be ready for the latest server OC models. There is a lag.
  • There seems to be constant unrest with the management application platform, CME, SCI, Genesys administrator, GAX, then GAX plugins, then a move away from plugins. We would like one stable management platform that encompasses ALL aspects of management within the contact center.
  • Real-time reporting deficiencies with Genesys pulse web. this application cannot live up to CCPulse with respect to flexibility of views. Pulse web was a plugin now it's not a plugin any longer. constant movement, we finally get pulse web plugin onto production, 6 months later these something supposedly better.

Overall, from a customer perspective and also an agent perspective, it is very easy to use Genesys Engage's platform. The Agent Desktop and Genesys WDE are good. Usability is high and I would consider it an easy to use product and easy to adopt from this perspective.

There's definitely room for improvement. I would have love to see the chat functionality work more frequently. The level of expertise has diminished over the years. I understand that this in part has to do with the number of new products that has been introduced, but should not be an excuse for the lack of readiness.

Good training, but on limited locations. You can almost only follow trainings in europ in the UK and in Germany. Uk location is relatively difficult to get to and on a exppensive location. The content of the training is good, supplied training material is okay, but sometimes a bit outdated. When you follow a training it is most likely because of a recent purchase which is uasually the latest version.

Interesting webinars on relevant topic are being provided regularly. Th e webinars a often provided by Genesys and hosted by a very experienced product owner. In many occasions a customer is invited to share his / her experiences and best practices. Webinars can be watched at a later time for your convenience.

It was a death march. We finally learned enough about the product to know that our vendor knew nothing and had done it wrong. We hired voice engineers and took over the project. We should have fired our vendor much earlier

We used to use Dialpad and it was a great tool. Since switching to Cisco Finesse, we have had no issues with call forwarding, call transfers, or holding. We no longer experience any issues with our callers in the queue or any issues with call playback for quality assurance. Cisco Finesse has made things much easier around the office.

For a similar contact center structure, I find Genesys products are faster to produce outcomes, and fast to respond (loading, changing screens...). However, in terms of user interface, I do prefer the way NICE did things there. Coming from an agent background, I find that the NICE agent interface is more visually appealing and offers more flexibility (parameters for agent exceptions).

The Interactive Intelligence SIP based contact center platform has broken through the barriers of "board based" technology to processor based limits on scalability. This means their CIC premise or cloud platform can be engineered to support agent counts into the thousands.
