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.

Well suited for sites where the product is hardware because with those if there are any questions then the site could help eliminate having to contact the company directly and waiting for answers days later. This would be suited for products as the answer could be given and the more complex questions would be directed to the company.

  • Google Cloud Contact Center AI is based on the same foundation infrastructure and services as Google Assistant, therefore, it is robust and flexible. The APIs are very well built and documented as well. Any newbie can start using the service with a very little learning curve.
  • Seamless integrations are also a great add-on. Google makes sure that Contact Center AI service integrates well with leading customer service platforms which helps any user to use only the required functionalities from Contact Center AI and meanwhile use any other primary platform.
  • Robust documentation which is always alive and is updated within no time is of great help! Google makes sure its end customers know what to do where and when in clear plain text and any issues/ bugs are also documented.

Generally intuitive and easy to learn. I would like more guides but the learning curve is rather quick and makes the software rather an easy study for the average user. Generally, the support and functionality of the software make for a generally good outcome and easy implementation of the software and user experience.

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.

Only IBM Watson Assistant has been the one we have used in the company, in fact, it was the first to use it because currently in the market there are not many options to use, and if there are they are not receiving enough publicity, so we have limited ourselves to google cloud contact center AI.
