    Likelihood to Recommend

    Cisco Unified Contact Center

    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.
    Gustavo Alves | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    In the new area of pandemic-era meetings online, I really like the opportunity that Zoom provides to have a meeting space. The audio and video quality is typically good, with problems usually being blamed on the bandwidth of the service provider. The recordings are great to be able to use once they have been processed. In fact, if there was one thing I would improve about recordings, it would be the amount of time it takes to render the video ready for output and sharing.
    Randy Palmer | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pros

    Cisco Unified Contact Center

    • Provides you with a solid routing engine that was built to handle Service Provider level throughput - if you need stability and a work horse this is the platform for you.
    • 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.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    • The ease of hosting & joining meetings with a simple URL.
    • The ability to screen-share and share control of screens seamlessly makes collaboration even better.
    • Participants limit in a zoom meeting is way better than other collaboration tools.
    • Ability to restrict unwanted users from joining the meeting even with the meeting password.
    Sameera Srivastava | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Cisco Unified Contact Center

    • 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.
    James Riley | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    • Sharing zoom complete information is not visible on the screen, and also a bit is confusing minimizing and maximizing.
    • Every time someone enters the chat, a chat box appears on my screen, and some features are missing from this version.
    • Automatic conference connection based on a schedule isn't an option, and neither is enhanced security measures.

    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.

    To be honest, there are tools better than Cisco Unified Contact Center
    because it largely depends on third party integrations with better
    alternatives available now a days. However, Cisco Unified Contact Center has its own standards in terms of user experience and client satisfactions which serves every customers with a flawless experience.

    Zoom has been very good in terms of usability as I have rarely had issues joining the meetings on desktop and it has always provided me with a stable audio and video and it makes it very easy for me to get through any meetings without much problem. I have found that it helps create a very friendly environment with my team through the creation of conferences and moderated chat rooms.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
    Alyson Sherlock | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    Zoom cannot be beaten for ubiquity - 100% of my clients and prospective clients are already familiar with Zoom. This is the #1 reason why I use Zoom. Additionally, Zoom integrates with AcuityScheduling, saving me a lot of time in creating meetings and adding them to the calendar. Zoom is disappointing in terms of video quality, interactivity features, and privacy. In cases where I need to use the recording of webinars for digital products, I will always use Crowdcast, and in cases where privacy is essential, I will use JitsiMeet.

    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.

    Overall I feel it is a fair price for what you pay for and the time constraints are not an issue at all. Zoom allows users to be on there for hours and hours and also you can launch as many meetings as you want. Overall I am very happy with using Zoom for our business.

    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.

    Zoom is an all-around, robust, and equipped tool that serves a huge requirement for communicating and running business processes very effectively. The calendar integration is very helpful in notifying the team members [of] any meeting upcoming and is also apt for mobile use in special cases as well. The phone call feature is also very standout. Minimum bugs and ease of use make it the first choice for any company.

    Return on Investment

    Cisco Unified Contact Center

    • Simplifications in the suite are needed because we faced hard times with its implementation.
    • The product is price worthy when comparing it with what it really provides and offers.
    • Helps large-size organizations/businesses provide a good customer experience that complies with their complex business requirements.
    Mostafa Awad | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    • It enables me to send and receive messages from my team members during video calls, handling online presentations.
    • With the ability to quickly stop, mute, and even receive notifications when someone enters or exits the meeting room, I'm never obligated to show up while making a call.
    • It is possible to record online meetings for future reference and more effective customer service. As we dealt with a lockdown, Zoom helped our business run smoothly.
