Cisco Hosted Unified Communications Services

It is well suited for: Clients with call managers that want to continue using Cisco and want to minimize the new CAPEX. Clients that want to outsource the platform management and support.Clients that have a variation on the number of extensions.Although, Cisco HCS, is a solution that has a higher opex than the ones supported in ISP IP Centrex.

Dialpad Talk

Dialpad is suited for almost every situation depending on the structure of the business. If you are an on-the-go person and have the ability to use your cellphone or home phone there are great functions for that. The great functions and features of Dialpad allow users the ability to track their calls, create an electronic contact list, and view/listen to their messages. There are so many features I love that have been well thought out and applied. I think for the medical industry, there [have] to be better wireless options than the ones given and headsets that have a longer range on them.

Dialpad Talk

  • Easy to set up – be up and running in minutes.
  • Easy to manage – web GUI makes management simple.
  • Great call quality – when direct to a desk phone or computer or HD audio on mobile quality is great and there is no perceptible delay that you can sometimes get with VOIP.

Cons

Cisco Hosted Unified Communications Services

  • Integration with contact center plaforms
  • Integration with other UC platforms
  • Lower the tennant size and clusters capacity
  • Cisco's pressure to buy more and more licences, even not having a stale client pipeline (From the ISP point of view)

Dialpad Talk

  • Sometimes calls connect with no audio (you can't hear the caller)
  • It would be nice for Dialpad to auto sync new contacts from G-Suite (not requiring manual sync after initial sync)
  • It would be nice if Dialpad had a 'robo-attendant' option where you could type out a greeting and have the attendant read it (instead of having to record your own audio)

The Dialpad app is very user friendly. It took very little time for even our most technically-challenged users to adopt it. Dialpad is also constantly upgrading their software so that functionality is gained. User adoption was really amazing. All it took was just making a few outbound calls and a few short videos to train our people.

  1. Dialpad Onboarding support was okay. I think this was because we used a 3rd party vendor. We had a lot of issues with provisioning the phones.
  2. The Dialpad sales rep forgot to mention that Dialpad is only compatible with Polycom desk phones so we bad to purchase new phones last minute.
  3. We were supposed to get 3 months free when we signed up with Dialpad as a courtesy but the charged us for the 3rd month. They have resolved this error but I think there was no designated point of contact on Dialpad's end to help things move more smoothly.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Hosted Unified Communications Services

Cisco HCS platform is to be seen as a centralized UC platforms, that can be scalable as an IP Centrex solution and as rich in functionalities as a Cisco CUCM. If you're looking for a solution and your main focus is IM & P functionalities rather than voice, Lync is a good solution. If your focus is voice and telephony, Cisco is a better solution

Dialpad Talk

We previously used an NEC Voice over IP system. Dialpad Talk is much easier to program and on/off schedule for holidays and weather closings. Also, the previous phone system could only be used while staff is at their office. Dialpad can be used anywhere and programmed from anywhere.

  • The licensing is perpetual, the only associated cost with the licenses are SWSS.
  • Desktop sharing isn't a functionality.
  • Cisco SMB series can be used only with the higher cost licensing (Foundation/Standard).

Dialpad Talk

  • Quality- With this app we can secure our quality level, always being on top of every interaction and never missing possible behaviors than [need to] be addressed in a timely manner.
  • Flow- During the calls, we have some cards that remind our agents what to say and what to do when a specific word is mentioned.
  • Immediate assistance- As supervisors we use the option to listen on live every possible negative interaction and work it out immediately.
