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.

Well suited:Environments that don't require texting, and where users are highly technical and able to troubleshoot on your own. We've found that we need an internal tools manager AND an expert on each sales/support team to successfully onboard new team members and ensure current team members know how to use the tool.Not well-suited
  1. Organizations that rely on texting.
  2. Organizations with low tech literacy on their teams.
  3. Organizations with little ability to manage tools like this.

  • Availability- Five9 has servers in multiple regions and an entire team monitoring 24/7 to make sure we do not have down time.
  • Scalability- We can quickly increase our licenses up and down based on the needs of our clients.
  • Security- We do not have to worry about security.
  • Quality of voice- we are able to use Five9's soft phones and sustain a high quality of voice.
  • Single code set and cloud based software as a service. Competitors we looked at were typically more of a collection of applications.
  • Speed/Ease of use- We can manage Five9 with a single administrator vs an IT department.
  • Compliance- for outbound dialing compliance is built in. We also use their TCPA solution for dialing cellular phones.
  • Future proof: Five9 continues to invest in making their virtual contact center better. This in turn makes our service offering stronger.

Cons

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  • The Express Unified Contact Center version is getting outdated and has capacity limitations.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.

  • Java based desktop application is a pain to keep updated.
  • The user interface for the agent desktop application is clunky and outdated. It could use a facelift.
  • The help center for documentation isn't well organized and the documentation needs substantial editing.

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.

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.

Five9's Customer Support team is also based in Manila Philippines, thus turnaround email response times for our reported issues are great for our requirements. Their CS agents also facilitate mobile calls to followup on outstanding issues and operate on a 24/7 schedule. We've also had experience working with the senior tech agents to investigate recurring issues to completion.

Alternatives Considered

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

While we use Invoca and LeadsPedia for more granular tracking and data, Five9 has always sort of been the end all be all. If it's in Five9, it's pretty concrete that the info in Five9 is the correct information. It doesn't matter which campaign a call came through, if it came through at all, it will be seen in Five9.
