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.

GoToConnect is a powerful platform for correspondence. The user interface is straightforward, and installing the majority of clients only requires a small amount of preparation. GoTo Connect is an excellent choice for us because it's a reasonably priced solution that has all the necessary advanced capabilities that our company needs. GoTo Connect's high-quality calls and recording feature make it an excellent choice for offering customer care over the phone.

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

  • GoTo Connect is a much more cost-effective solution rather than separate phone lines and video conferencing tools.
  • I conduct daily team meetings and project brainstorming sessions using video conferencing using GoTo Connect.
  • It integrates smoothly with our regularly used tools like Google Drive and has become very easy to share the documents we use.

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.

  • I would like flexibility on billing - now set as auto-pay only on company credit card. We would like to pay by check or ACH.
  • Better integration of GoTo Meeting, which we also use (and like)
  • Better broad-plan pricing (like 'bundling') when we use multiple platforms as we do - and simplified billing

They are knocking it out of the park on all fronts. I love the service and support I am receiving and have no complaints. If they raised their prices substantially I would reconsider but I don't think that will happen anytime soon. They would have to mess up something consistently moving forward to make me want to move

Usability
CloudTalk.io
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.

Overall, it's a decent product for the price. It has the basic features our company needed when it was brand new and was not overly difficult to set up. As we've grown, it's become increasingly difficult to build out the features we want to implement within the PBX, and customer support can be less than helpful. Many of the more advanced features (dial plans, queues, etc.) take a lot of research to understand how to implement. Some of the features we paid for weren't even available when we were attempting to set them up.

Performance

There is no lag in phone calls. There is no background noise or static/fuzz. Calls are crystal clear. With other dialers and phone systems, I have experienced delays between dialogue or delays with the caller picking up the phone and then being able to hear you. We do not experience this with Go To Connect.

Support Rating
CloudTalk.io
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!

Support used to be great when it was Jive support out of Utah. Now that they've offshored support it can be difficult to get a response. Our most common issues are least cost routing, and we run into support pushing back in stead of just figuring out which upstream carrier is having an issue like they used to. We often have to get our account manager involved, who is pretty strong.

The implementation of GoTo Connect was easy from the day of the kick-off call where a short brief was given about the company, a discussion around the project timelines, and the data dependencies on us to set up the platform. The updates around the project during the implementation and the hand holding after go-live is really appreciated

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.

Teams seems more advanced and suited to bigger audiences, GoTo Connect seems like its a more basic version suited to smaller audiences. If you are looking to get started with an easy to use and full functioning meeting system with good audio visual then this is a great place to get started. Teams has the edge with more people comfortable on how to use this and some more in depth features

Its not readily apparent to me, other than cost, where you would run into any issues with larger scale deployments. When we went live on the product, the Jive team was always willing to do mass updates for us on our extensions, users, etc. in the system, so we didn't have to do too much manual one-by-one updates.

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
