Cloudtalk is by far the best value-for-price software out there for call center solutions. Packed with features, very accessible, kind and accessible customer support, and cheap, especially when compared with their competitors for the same range of features. Easy entry-level software, especially if you're a startup that doesn't want to make big initial commitments but needs a solution that scales with the business.

As I said, I really like the platform because you consolidate everything in the same place. But for Brazil, it still has to adapt. For example, the time zone, the dialing rules. Dialing control is still not clear, it is not transparent. It still needs to evolve.

Pros
CloudTalk.io
  • It's extremely simple to install and integrate
  • Their smart dialer option reduces time spent typing in number and helps make more calls
  • It makes life super easy to keep track of calls being made and how long calls are but also to listen back on calls made

  • One thing that we really love is the bot capabilities. On our inbound calls for our contact center, we've got a voice spot, and that routes all of our calls for us. We've managed to move away from a traditional IBR and move to a single question for the majority of cases and the customers go through so much faster. So at the moment, the time it takes for a customer to get to our queue is about 27 seconds. Previously that was well over a minute. We've seen huge improvements with it.

Cons
CloudTalk.io
  • A lot of features are still missing, some of which are pretty basic like being able to select multiple filters instead of one.
  • Desktop app has had some instability issue.
  • IVR needs to be self-recorded which can lead to a lower quality.

  • Mostly just little things I'd like to see. I know that, obviously, moving from one platform to another one, there's going to be bumps where we're used to doing something one way we have to learn the new way. So that hasn't been too much of a problem, but there are little quirks I think could be better.
  • I think searching through the menus could be a little easier instead of always having to go back to the main menu so then go to the next menu. That could be a little easier. And mostly just other little tweaks like with gamification on some of the scorekeeping would be a good thing.

The upcoming upgrades working with Genesys Cloud and Salesforce are very exciting. Even though we don't use Genesys Cloud to the fullest extent it can be used (we just migrated a year ago), when these upgrades roll out, I am very excited to see what it can do to for our agents. I think they are going to be very impressed

CloudTalk is super easy to use and has a great quality. It helps to communicate with the clients easily and we can feel that the sound quality is high, while speaking to the client and while listening to the recordings. This is for our department essential in our day to day work.

Everything is very good. It is very useful, friendly to users and it makes our work easier than what we expected. I think that I don't need any help from someone on how to use Genesys coz basically they will directly feed it to you without any hassle on using it.

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!

I have taken the preparatory course for Genesys Cloud Certification. I must say that it is a good training for administrators and analysts. The bibliography is very clear and is easy to identify the topics, which are conveniently separated. It is, in my opinion, mandatory for those who want to exercise the position of Genesys Cloud platform administrators.

The support engineer that I partnered with during the implementation was exceptional. Every element of the process was done together and the end result of the efforts to grow the knowledge to be able to hand over at the end enabled a pretty smooth transition.

It was a gamble if I'm being honest, plus this is a very nuanced and intricate topic. We didn't necessarily substitute one for the other, it was a much needed state of affairs where we needed the call monitoring and agent tracking pros of CloudTalk more so than ever before.

We actually evaluated quite a few products before we moved to Genesys Cloud CX. We had a vendor selection process which went for about six months, and it was pretty rigorous. Five9 was one of them. I think we didn't check out Topdesk so that they were out of the picture, but I think Nice inContact was also there as part of that. So those were the two top contenders. We like Genesys for their workforce management. Five9 - I think they were using some age-old software, to be honest, that was not as automated as Genesys, so we liked it.

Professional services are definitely much more experienced than the support teams, and the price for their services is very fair. I wish that the support team could help answer simple questions about work that the PSS team does, however, so that we do not have to use our SOW for simple Q&A emails.

Return on Investment
CloudTalk.io
  • For a similar price it is not necessary to manage so many cell phone accounts
  • Unlike basic telephony. It is possible to have more control of the interactions with our clients.
  • For administrators it allows better control of commercial actions or the corresponding area for communication issues

  • That's a good question. I've been with the company for seven months. I don't know if there's been a huge impact on ROI or finances.
  • Now, in Genesys, I need a carrier that fits directly into Genesys. So, for us, that's going to cut the costs of having a traditional SBC with a traditional Telco. Genesys offers us that. You can't do that with another traditional telephone system. So one of the advantages, I think, for the dollar, is that I can bring my own carrier that fits directly into Genesys and eliminate the physical layer, so I can also play with my channels on that side. I can manage my telephone according to the times of year when the call centers are busier or less busy. From a financial point of view, that can be a positive thing.
  • In terms of return on investment, the company I work for had already been on Genesys PureConnect for years. So moving to PureCloud was a logical one because PureConnect was disappearing. I'm not sure if I have the answer, whether we've made savings or huge savings. One thing's for sure: ease of use, the whole customer experience aspect, the fact that we can chat and interact by email, these are things that weren't possible with the old versions. That's a positive thing.
