CloudTalk

CloudTalk is great for making calls and receiving them, while doing different tasks. It is easy to see the incoming call and to answer them. As well as the call quality is high. It is really suited to be used in customer service, when many clients are calling. Sometimes if a client can not pick up the phone, the SMS option can be a great help to send the information and to receive from the client the information back

Well suited:Environments that don't require texting, and where users are highly technical and able to troubleshoot on your own. We've found that we need an internal tools manager AND an expert on each sales/support team to successfully onboard new team members and ensure current team members know how to use the tool.Not well-suited
  1. Organizations that rely on texting.
  2. Organizations with low tech literacy on their teams.
  3. Organizations with little ability to manage tools like this.

Pros

CloudTalk

  • Ease of use.
  • Ease of setup.
  • Usability.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Five9

  • Availability- Five9 has servers in multiple regions and an entire team monitoring 24/7 to make sure we do not have down time.
  • Scalability- We can quickly increase our licenses up and down based on the needs of our clients.
  • Security- We do not have to worry about security.
  • Quality of voice- we are able to use Five9's soft phones and sustain a high quality of voice.
  • Single code set and cloud based software as a service. Competitors we looked at were typically more of a collection of applications.
  • Speed/Ease of use- We can manage Five9 with a single administrator vs an IT department.
  • Compliance- for outbound dialing compliance is built in. We also use their TCPA solution for dialing cellular phones.
  • Future proof: Five9 continues to invest in making their virtual contact center better. This in turn makes our service offering stronger.

Cons

CloudTalk

  • The service is unusable right now because it's always down. CloudTalk has oversold their service to too many customers on too few servers (as admitted on an email from their CEO to all their customers). We've lost all functionality for days - crippling our customer support team

  • Java based desktop application is a pain to keep updated.
  • The user interface for the agent desktop application is clunky and outdated. It could use a facelift.
  • The help center for documentation isn't well organized and the documentation needs substantial editing.

I must say that the flexibility of this tool is amazing. I can see all the necessary details about the calls and available agents at one place, including reports, SLAs and other metrics I need to work with. The interface has a very nice modern design, which is easy to use and very intuitive.

They are skilled, experienced, and anytime I need something and contact the support time, I get the right person who understands my needs and reacts to them accordingly. So far I was only pleasantly surprised by the level of support these guys provide and coming from a customer service oriented background myself, I can only say keep it up guys, you are doing a fantastic job!

Five9's Customer Support team is also based in Manila Philippines, thus turnaround email response times for our reported issues are great for our requirements. Their CS agents also facilitate mobile calls to followup on outstanding issues and operate on a 24/7 schedule. We've also had experience working with the senior tech agents to investigate recurring issues to completion.

Alternatives Considered

CloudTalk

Aircall is really expensive for the same functionality and Freshcaller was just impossible to work with and really bad service. Both also don't have a good freemium tier like this does.

While we use Invoca and LeadsPedia for more granular tracking and data, Five9 has always sort of been the end all be all. If it's in Five9, it's pretty concrete that the info in Five9 is the correct information. It doesn't matter which campaign a call came through, if it came through at all, it will be seen in Five9.

Return on Investment

CloudTalk

  • CloudTalk has crippled our customer support team. The return on investment has basically been upset customers because they can't get through to us for assistance because the app and CloudTalk servers are constantly down.

  • We are able to contact more clients on a daily basis
  • We are able to record and monitor phone calls for quality assurance
  • We are able to measure all KPI's for agent performance
  • The Do Not Call list is incredibly easy to add and remove clients
