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.

Nextiva VoIP Call Center

Their system is suited when the nature of your business requires to make outbound calls to a lot of businesses or offices or even consumers. If you are looking to start a homebased project especially in our situation right now (pandemic), I strongly suggest using Nextiva as your service provider. Again, I don't think there's a perfect CRM solution that will match exactly how you operate your business but this is close to perfection and also good to your budget.

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  • The Express Unified Contact Center version is getting outdated and has capacity limitations.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

Nextiva VoIP Call Center

  • Whenever you log in to their recording portal, it always takes a while before it loads up to their default page. I'm not quite sure if this is because of the volume of recorded calls or something else.
  • In their recording portal, sometimes you thought the call was not recorded but only to find out that you would sometimes need to add a plus sign and 1 in the beginning of the 10 digit phone number where normally you wouldn't need it.
  • When you download a recording, I would've wanted to see the recording file downloaded and not a zip folder that I have to still extract the recording file from. I know it is possible to just download the file because that's what I appreciate in downloading a recording to a competitor CMV.

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.

They are very nice, friendly and you can really feel their willingness to help. They are proactive in finding out potential issue and they sometimes extend their service by calling me and making sure I'm still happy with the service. They have Live Chat support, email, and hotline that you can use to connect to them.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Unified Contact Center

Unified Contact Center proved itself best with end user requirement and also best for integration perspective where we can easily mitigate complex call flow requirements.Technically it is best to understand if our terminology is clear or protocol level knowledge is perfect.Also, if we aim to integrate third party vendors for call recording, call quality management, display, historical reporting it is the best one.

Nextiva VoIP Call Center

Nextiva is pretty much evenly matched against RingCentral and their phone system; the call quality and voice mail transcription are on par. However, Nextiva's admin portal is more cumbersome to use by comparison and the lack of an SMS feature is a definite drawback considering the communication habits of most people in 2018.
