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.

I [suppose] every organization has different needs and based on that they can choose the app that suits them. There are several apps now like Google Meet, Zoho Meetings, Cisco, Teams, etc. Zoom is useful for instant meets and where you don't have a large number of participants. We felt Zoom was more than enough for our work and it could be easily accessed anywhere from any device.

Pros

Cisco Unified Contact Center

  • Provides a great cradle-to-grave reporting capability of a customer journey through the Customer Contact Center.
  • Integrations with numerous third-party vendors providing the end-user several choices in vendors offering similar offerings.
  • The User community is vast, yet tight knit and collaborative spirited.
  • Documentation set is vast
  • Reliable once installed correctly and patched regularly.

  • It just works. Biggest complaint with our previous solution is that it took 10 minutes to connect to a meeting. Now, our users connect instantaneously.
  • Dashboard is fantasitic. Can access real time information to troubleshoot calls.
  • Admin ports offers quite a bit of information. Like that it's a one stop shop to access everything I need to administer the site, users, run reports and access the dashboard.
  • Tickets get resolved quickly.
  • Feature requests are realized quickly.

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  • The Express Unified Contact Center version is getting outdated and has capacity limitations.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

  • Using it for recording practice interviews and playing back for critiquing, is awkward and kludgy at best. The steps are: Record the session, then END THE MEETING so that Zoom can save the recording. Then get the recording ready to play, then have the client log in AGAIN, you log in AGAIN, share the screen, play the recording.
  • Zoom should make it possible to have the interviewer, especially if the practice interview is recorded, to make themselves SMALL throughout the whole recording so that *the candidate* is the focus on the screen. Neither the Speaker view or the Gallery view does this.
  • There should be a separate timer on Zoom for the recording portion of the screen. I realize I can do this myself manually, but why can’t Zoom do it for me?
  • Zoom needs to have a way to get feedback like this. I could not find a way to give them this feedback on their product, on their site or in the dashboard. All we get is a database that is tone deaf. Nowhere could I find any "Feedback? Click here." Not good.
  • If by these suggestions I’m asking for more functionality, I understand an increased cost. But small companies like mine cannot pay hundreds of dollars a month - please have a very functional version that small firms can still afford. Thank you.

We're sticking with Zoom for the foreseeable future--given its compelling feature set, ease of use, and advanced technology, there's just no other competition to be excited about. Plus it's a Gartner-recognized industry leader, so it's a rather easy choice.

Usability

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.

Everything is easy to understand and use, new users need no training. On the flipside there are minor annoyances such as calendar export being cumbersome (need re-auth every time) and also not having recordings shared within a team or forcing people to name them.

There have been less than a handful of outages during our two years with Zoom, and whenever there was one, an email informing us of the outage went out immediately, and they had the issue resolved shortly thereafter.

Zoom has among the best performance of any video conference platform, as I've mentioned several times. Besides that, their Chat platform works great, and their back end always runs smooth. It's unfortunate that reporting can now only be done by one month at a time, but nonetheless, it only takes a second to run any kind of Zoom report, whether it's an attendee report, Poll results, a user report, a list of meetings from the past month, etc.

Fully engaged support TAC team with great experience. The platform is extremely stable and rarely gives issue. With the extensive features in version 11.5, you couldn't ask for more. The sleek look and feel of the agent desktop called finesse makes extra easy for agents to manage their states and manage workflows. Above all, the BI you get from the native reporting component called CUIC is incredibly over the top. The administration of the platform is extremely easy and it can be integrated with other components to enhance functionality.

As I've written before, Zoom makes us feel like we matter and that we're a client rather than a customer. They want us to succeed and they put in the time to make sure that we do. I feel like they're more of a business partner rather than simply a vendor or supplier. They spent a lot of time onboarding with us, giving us demos, helping us get set up, and then giving us follow-up to be sure it's going well.

If you receive any pushback from higher ups, point to any of the various positive reviews like this one. Or show Zoom's excellent Gartner report, or articles describing Zoom's partnership with Sequoia capital. It's not difficult to show how Zoom is a trustworthy industry leader with best-in-class technology.

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.

What I like about the most about Zoom, compared to Skype, is its dependability. Our IT department was being flooded constantly with tickets describing how bad their experience with Skype was. From dropped calls to poor quality, the solution was clear: we needed another platform. Zoom stepped in and was given the ability to show us what they could do. You expect technology like Zoom to integrate with your existing technology, but they did something that is harder to find these days and made our experiences better. That's why we chose Zoom. They made us better.

Because the Basic licenses are completely free, and because it's very easy to configure and install Zoom, and because anyone can join Zoom from a link without needing an account, scaling is a Breeze. There are absolutely no roadblocks. My company keeps adding more Zoom Pro license every week since it's so in demand. We were able to convert users from several different platforms onto Zoom with no trouble at all.

Return on Investment

Cisco Unified Contact Center

  • I consider that the quality of service and functions are necessary for those who need an agent service.
  • The reporting and analysis of calls with customers help improve the satisfaction of the help provided.
  • Customers are satisfied with all the tools. The platform is complete.
Arturo Lopez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoom

  • Zoom has allowed all global users to easily join meetings without the assistance of IT admins or AV technicians. The technology that we used prior to Zoom was not user-friendly and made for many issues.
  • Webinars have made company-wide training very easy to conduct. This allows trainers to reach a huge audience without having to worry about interruptions and technical difficulties.
  • Collaboration and communication have been increased company-wide, which makes for greater gains for the company long term.
