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

Fuze

Fuze is excellent where the simplicity of a fully cloud-based, turn-key solution is desired. There are plenty of options for customization, including an always improving Contact Center module to handle small-medium call centers without overly complex routing and IVR requirements. It is also well-suited for geographically disperse environments, and companies with a large number of adds, moves, and changes. Growing companies will appreciate the flexibility to increase from a handful of users in a single location to hundreds or even thousands of employees all around the globe without the need to migrate to a new system or replace expensive hardware appliances.

Pros

CloudTalk

  • Fast.
  • Reliable.
  • Superb sound quality.
  • Ease of use.
Stanislav Bouda | TrustRadius Reviewer

Fuze

  • Availability to use your work number anytime anywhere. Our recruiters make themselves available as much as they can. Being able to answer calls from their worklines while not in the office and make calls from their work numbers is a big deal.
  • Setting up new phones and numbers is very easy with their hub. I don't always have to go directly to their support team to setup new users. As long as I have the mac address of the phone and we have free numbers I can set a new user up in minutes.
  • Their support team is great as well. If I do need to get help with an issue their support team is quick to respond and very knowledgeable about their systems. Their team is also able to fix most support cases within the same day.

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

Fuze

  • Responses to customer issues are often poor, This is mainly directed to billing-related issues but to a customer reporting a problem they do not care what department is causing the delay, it's just an issue that they have opened that needs to be sorted out.
  • There seems to have been several changes regarding the direction the product is moving in certain areas which have caused confusion and frustration. Areas that are very important to our business which we were told were planned have been jettisoned.
  • More transparency should be given regarding the roadmap and direction.

1,000% will renew. For the price, for the features, for the support, for the implementation, for the ability to deploy to a new site, or a new company acquisitioned that has an older PBX, we can get them to Fuze with so little effort, dump the phones on their desk, and give them all the features and "WOW" that they would expect from a modern enterprise.

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.

Very easy to use. You log in with your organization credentials. You can choose which device you want to use it on. If it needs to be embedded to SalesForce, then you have to stick to Windows. As for mobile units, you can install it on iOS or Android and make calls easily.

Because the people who designed Fuze were Data-center people, they thought of availability first, there really isn't any excuse for telephony downtime, and they certainly do well with this. There has never been a total outage, just a few features sometimes have been offline while Fuze moves the service to other servers, NEVER calling, sometimes chat or physical phones (which can be fixed by rebooting them). The uptime on the Fuze systems is basically: Always up, always available.

Since Fuze runs across multiple devices and platforms they really strived to make a lightweight interface that is optimized for phone calls, chat, and collaboration. The web client loads fast, the chat is always up-to-date, phone calls arrive on-time. The desktop client is the most feature rich and basically it just adds desktop sharing functionality as well as VoIP for calling, and the mobile client doesn't consume a lot of battery, and it stays running to get phone calls, chats, and can do meetings over Wifi, Cellular Data, or Cellular voice.

Because it solves all problems we faced initially and it makes us data-driven team with its HubSpot integration. CloudTalk is a good investment if you are keen to track actions in your team.

Support is an area Fuze could improve. With the most recent updates it's become much better however there are sometimes days that will pass before a response from support is received and in most case connectivity is used as a standard response. Recently had a call where when dialed in via the iOS app it was very difficult to hear however when I dialed in, it was clear.

At many of our sites with more than 50 users, Fuze sent someone onsite to train. This worked surprisingly well, as the trainer allowed the users to set the pace and answered TONS of questions. Fuze has a very streamlined training process, their staff is very professional, very knowledgeable and very engaging.

Fuze has vast amounts of training videos and guides on how to use its products and services. There are literally endless-hours of training and I often point end-users to a particular video which addresses the specific needs of the user, for example: how to check voicemail. Or, how to share your desktop, etc.

I am very well satisfied with the Fuze implementation at our company. It is really easy to set up. It's a straight up process and requires very minimal oversight. I will also like to say that the implementation was fairly quick. Also the UI is very easy to go around. You can easily find any feature in particular that you were searching for.

Alternatives Considered

CloudTalk

CloudTalk is in terms of calls showing a great performance, although LiveAgent was good, too. The decision to change to CloudTalk was due to the lower price for the use. It is really handy for calls, LiveAgent offers also the options for emails. Both software are great for work and together makes it easy to do the tasks needed.
Ieva Lukstiņa | TrustRadius Reviewer

Fuze

WebEx seems to be a top contender against Fuze, but because it's more meeting based than for just individual calls we decided to disregard it as a solution as a replacement for our traditional phone system. Skype for Business on the other hand is also good and has the features we need, but it was too expensive.

Fuze does have scalability limits but most of that is how many end-points they can put on a virtual PBX, or VCX as they call them, I THINK its limit is somewhere between 2,000 and 5,000, but we've not had issues with that because we have put users into various VCXs some by location, some by department or function. Either way, we have 7,000 currently deployed, and are going to end up with over 15,000 when we are done, Fuze is VERY scalable.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Fuze

  • We receive constant negative feedback from mangers about the system not functioning correctly. (This is mainly due to lack of support from Fuze)
  • This has had a positive impact in that the system is cheaper and we are missing less calls due to the functionality of the system.
