Likelihood to Recommend
I would recommend it to other people in my contact and business circle, but if I recommend it to someone who has certain difficulties in accessing some tools within Cisco, he may have great difficulty in getting help because of the support that is lacking in most of the times.

Well suited for sites where the product is hardware because with those if there are any questions then the site could help eliminate having to contact the company directly and waiting for answers days later. This would be suited for products as the answer could be given and the more complex questions would be directed to the company.

The core features on the whole are good, but where UCCE is very good is the eco-system of Solutions Plus partner integrations that expand on the core capabilities with the market leaders in areas such as WFO, Campaign Management, Biometrics and Natural Language. The investment Cisco makes in the CC space means they are always improving the platform features, scale and reliability. Read full review Google Cloud Contact Center AI is based on the same foundation infrastructure and services as Google Assistant, therefore, it is robust and flexible. The APIs are very well built and documented as well. Any newbie can start using the service with a very little learning curve. Seamless integrations are also a great add-on. Google makes sure that Contact Center AI service integrates well with leading customer service platforms which helps any user to use only the required functionalities from Contact Center AI and meanwhile use any other primary platform. Robust documentation which is always alive and is updated within no time is of great help! Google makes sure its end customers know what to do where and when in clear plain text and any issues/ bugs are also documented. Read full review Cons After 25+ years, the product still requires experienced and highly skilled engineers to deploy the product properly per Cisco Best Practice guidelines. Third-party integrations are also very cumbersome and require highly skilled and experienced engineers and significant time and financial investment to deploy. Upgrading the product is cumbersome and requires Cisco ATP or Cisco AS which is time consuming and very expensive. Read full review It's still in the beginning phase of sentimental Analysis and more data sets can really help during tough conversations. Automation can be made a little simpler and basic for anyone to be able to work on it. Each instance of the software can have its own AI learning for a wider range of real time issues.

if it is up to me I would maintain its use. I was not able to make those decisions previously.

We are happy with the implementation and functionality of the software and associated systems. In general, unless something better can replace this system we intend on continuing. We think the ease of systems implementation and integration adds value and substantiates the use and excellent functionality of the product and associated services.

To be honest, there are tools better than Cisco Unified Contact Center
Generally intuitive and easy to learn. I would like more guides but the learning curve is rather quick and makes the software rather an easy study for the average user. Generally, the support and functionality of the software make for a generally good outcome and easy implementation of the software and user experience.

Cisco Unified Contact center is a very smart & reliable solution to go for. Its active-active sight base architecture and [customizable] features really help to deliver efficient customer service, enhanced next-gen experience, and uninterrupted operations. I believe every [organization] should opt for it if required.

Similar I guess, however, I feel like Avaya was more suited for a contact center and allowed for all information to be in one place. The QA Forms were more flexible and easy to review. Predicative analysis was available to assist with scheduling and staffing. It was easier to manipulate and implement- I didn't need to go through 3 different parties to make a simply modification.

IBM Watson Assistant
has been the one we have used in the company, in fact, it was the first to use it because currently in the market there are not many options to use, and if there are they are not receiving enough publicity, so we have limited ourselves to google cloud contact center AI.

Licenses are very expensive. The customer has to buy IP telephony or Unified Communication and Collaboration Licenses and for Contact Center Solution licenses separately. There must be a price tone down as the competition is really high. New customers are willing to go for cloud-based solutions [that] are cheaper and easy to deploy.
