Collab OneContact is an all around platform that can be used in any situation. It can be used in situation where there isn't a PBX. I've seen some solutions where the platform is integrated, using SIP with a CUCM.

LiveAgent is great for companies that want to help customers with their issues. It is also great for getting sales for our company. During our chats, if a customer is interested, we like to ask for the sale. It is too easy for the customers to say no. So it is nice that with LiveAgent, they have an automatic process where the customer can enter their item and address information and it is easy for our agents to get the sale.
Read full review Pros Call Flow, ACD and IVR. Dynamic platform with the possibility to integrate with the client existing solution. Was built to stand alone, with no need for a supporting PBX, or a advanced reporting module. Read full review Having the ability to transfer tickets or chats has proven useful when we are working with a customer who has a specific type of inquiry - perhaps a sales question or an employment request. We’ve found it helpful to have the ability to transfer the chat to the online agent best equipped to answer the inquiry so we are able to serve our customers to the highest standard and with an immediate response. We find being able to add notes and labels to previous chats and tickets incredibly helpful in data collection and also in our ability to work as a dynamic team. By being able to sort our chats and tickets into an organized system that our company created, we can work cohesively to review old conversations for continuity, opportunities for growth, and with transparency between departments.

Read full review LA doesn't provide you SMS integration. You cannot divert your phone call from your local carrier to LA agent directly. You need to get a third party number which is way much costly. Also, if you get a third party number to divert your calls from a local carrier to LA, then the callers have to wait more than the usual time in order to get them connected with the Customer Support Team. WhatsApp Integration also unavailable. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

The initial setup, onboarding and training is easy. The system provides 2 graphic version of interfaces in black or white default colors. I would appreciate, if there were more. Some of the setup forms are not correctly resized. Overall, I'm always able to find what I am looking for in LiveAgent.

The one time that I contacted the customer support at LiveAgent, they were very quick to help me out and the customer support representative walked me through every thing that I needed to know to set up what I needed. Over all, the support staff at LiveAgent were perfect.

Implementation was quick and when not counting a bug on our website, it took a couple hours. It was mostly done on our end or with the assistance of LiveAgent's live chat support team. We recommend to check out LiveAgent's tutorial videos on their youtube channel or browsing their knowledge base - we've almost always found answers to our queries there.

CUCCX is a great platform but it can't be considered when working with other manufacturers, even if they support SIP. For this reason, when you're building a network that isn't just installed by one provider, I would suggest an approach different from CUCCX (considering VoIP and CC platforms, not routing or switching). OneContact allows the integration between platforms, allowing short number dialing between different contexts, recording other advanced telephony solution. Collab's Customer interaction Hub is a great solution for clients that need a CRM, but don't need much complexity, this mini-CRM is a great asset against the competition and facilitates the deployment of an omni-channel Contact Center.

Before making the decision, we evaluated many tools, but none of them met all of our needs or the costs we could bear for them, until we found LiveAgent. The implementation process was super simple and supported by the LiveAgent support team, who are excellent!
Read full review Return on Investment It has a low initial CAPEX It has low maintenance The manufacterer support can be a considerable cost. Read full review Less expensive than having multiple individual email accounts. LiveAgent has helped decrease our errors since it's more straightforward than sharing a traditional inbox with multiple team members. Sometimes the emails sent from LiveAgent end up in our customer's spam/junk folder because the auto-generated alpha-numeric ticket looks suspicious. Read full review ScreenShots
