- Well suited in managing a large staff base in a call centre environment. The real time data is incredibly insightful and useful - Gathering statistics for both customers and staff habits has large benefits towards creating an efficient workplace for all involved - Allows us to help staff grow in areas they might lack in with the was we can see and understand their habits

Twilio
Twilio excels in customer service applications, enabling automated SMS updates or voice calls for order confirmations and support. It's ideal for implementing two-factor authentication, enhancing security for online services. However, it's less suitable for businesses needing in-depth, custom telephony infrastructure, as it primarily offers standard, API-driven solutions, or for regions with limited internet connectivity, where cloud-based services may be unreliable.

Pros
Cisco
  • Things that it does particularly well include a really good UX or UI so that our agents as well as our administrators, can easily provide remote access from agents, new agents, and old agents, manage interactions with customers, and have a good call experience from start to finish.

  • Easy to see my team in one place, when they log in and out and what call status they are in.
  • Twilio is a simple, user friendly way to log in and out of work activities.
  • Excellent services and support.
  • The omnichannel feature which allows agents to get request from all channels.

Cons
Cisco
  • Better integration with Webex Calling.
  • More on premise features integrated into the cloud solution.
  • Better documentation for pebble templates.
  • Better information for changes and when new features are available. Instead of having to look on the what’s coming webpage alerts or a pop-up inside Webex control hub would be nice.

  • In my opinion, online support is extremely subpar for clients.
  • In my experience, no way to talk with anyone without a $1,500 investment monthly in their service.
  • In my experience, be prepared to wait at least 2-4 days to receive even one response from their support.

We have standardized our processes surrounding Twilio. The entire process just works! There is no significant gap that we need to fill. Instead of thinking about Twilio's replacement, we'd rather focus on our customers with Twilio. It meets all our uses-cases currently. We haven't even explored the entire suite of applications to determine what other use cases we may potentially use.

Overall the product API is extremely well documented so it is very easy to build a product with their technology. The website is a little bit cumbersome to use as they have greatly expanded the number of products that they have over the years, but the dashboard UI has not been improved much since.

The problem tends to be us, the user, rather than Twilio. We don't reach out to support fast enough (spend time struggling), but when we have, they've solved our issue immediately. We are rural, so there are signal issues to accommodate, however, we find that a few staff on a few cellular networks can triangulate where we all have signal to put up a sign.

I've never had to contact Authy's support. Of course, that's because Authy is so simple and easy to use that there hasn't been any need to. Authy correctly implements the time-based one-time password (TOTP) protocol, and becomes it conforms to the standard, it easily replaces Google Authenticator for your needs.

They all have the niche, but I feel Webex is the most well rounded complete suite. It provides exactly what a business would need, from an onboarding, training, security, updates, road mapping all the way to great user experience and beyond.

Twilio was referred to me by a business colleague, and I can't be more thankful! Twilio has helped my Facebook page by leaps and bounds, and I haven't even considered trying another chat option for my page. It is easy to set up, and customer service is quick to answer any and all questions you may have. I highly recommend it!

Return on Investment
Cisco
  • Increasing the number of channels agent can reach out to customers, especially text has shaved off a lot of hours from calling , leaving voicemail and waiting for customers to call back.
  • Less Downtime. No Upgrades or certificate Renewal, so fewer overtime hours.
  • Adoption of new features is now so quick, I don't have to worry about upgrading the Software or even hardware to get new features deployed.

  • Adding in phone numbers onto our onboarding sequence has increased our user activity by about 30%. We believe due to the users being more invested in the application now.
  • On top of that, our first SMS has increased our week 1 retention by about 15%. Pushing users to go on the app more than 2-3 times has been a struggle and SMS seems to be a solid driver in retention.
