Dialpad Talk

[Dialpad Talk is] appropriate for a small contact center. For us it has worked very well because some of the features we needed have slowly been integrated, which makes me believe they actually listen to the customers. For analytics itself I see it as still being in diapers, at least for us that run an outbound cold sales contact center. But in general, Dialpad [Talk] is a tool which has helped us keep an overall basic control over when, where, and what out agents are doing.

For Insurance agencies, small practices, small call centers, anyone that need call forwarding or work with his number remotely while away from office. I can't list all the things I'm gaining as a Fonality customer. From the installation process, the configuration phase with the technicians, the account managers, every Fonality employee was professional and savvy. I was a contact center specialist for more than 10 years and I can tell you that I've never been this happy with a service! Never! Probably if you need a more complex solution and you have an enterprise level company having your own hardware gives you more control over your calls and how to manage them. But again, I think that Fonality can cover most scenarios without the need of a huge investment.

Pros

Dialpad Talk

  • Notifications- via e-mails, calendar links and otherwise are very helpful when dealing with information that may otherwise get lost or forgotten in conversations
  • Access- Being able to access calls on the go via your own cell phone or using your laptop to help free up your hand and get real time speech intelligibility is much appreciated
  • Variety- Options for quick chats and sending photos, video calls to share screens when necessary, and your most recent calls available on the same screen you are already looking at adds to workplace efficiency

  • From an administrator's perspective, Fonality makes administering the company's phone system easy. Configuration menus and setup options are logically structured and easy to understand.
  • Technical support has been very good. Early on in our deployment, we had some nagging voice quality issues which were network related. Fonality provided exceptional support even though it was not technically their issue. It is important to know ahead of time how well your vendors work with other vendors for integrated services like a VOIP telephone system. Fonality support demonstrated their patience and perseverance in helping us resolve our issues.
  • Although we don't use remote office capabilities much, the ability to set up phones on the system in remote locations has been a significant help to several of our departments.

Cons

Dialpad Talk

  • I would like to see more company-level management of individual user settings. For example, I prefer all employees to call out using the main company's caller ID. As the account administrator, I cannot control this selection for individual users.
  • I would like the multilevel voice attendant to be more integrated as a single menu. As currently configured, I can enable all the options I want, but only by setting up a forest of "departments" each with their own windows and independent settings.
  • We received reports of callers getting a busy signal, but I have not been able to diagnose why. I would like a better mechanism for viewing call logs as an administrator.
  • Status lights for individual users do not appear to be accurate. Most users appear "available" nearly 24 hours a day.

  • Bugginess - Some things just really need some tweaking. I had to get very creative with my call routing and hold music, because the in-queue announcements don't work right at all. For example, even set to 'play once' it would loop the 'you are the first caller' announcement over and over, and cause call drops. Or my caller-name ID, which shows the registered user's name on each line on outgoing calls, even though it's not set to such anywhere in the CP settings.
  • Support - I'll give them 50/50 on this. My experience with Verizon VCE was everyone playing hot potato with issues and saying it was the responsibility of another department, meaning several phone calls and lots of hold time. Fonality doesn't have that issue, I've never really been passed around or blown off. However, some of the 'offshore' CS reps are... wow. I spent about half a dozen emails back and forth with two of them, trying to figure out why queues I deleted from the CP randomly and consistently reappeared in the HUD. Most of those emails were spent trying to explain that no, my issue was NOT that I wanted to create those queues again in the CP.

We've already made a deep investment in the system hardware. We wouldn't be interested in another system at this point! And by the look of my colleagues faces when they see the HUD, I don't think we'd want to switch to a system that would limit us or take away any of these features! We may look at putting the server in the cloud, should internet outages prove to be such a common issue that it is preventing our other locations from functioning smoothly

Usability

The Dialpad app is very user friendly. It took very little time for even our most technically-challenged users to adopt it. Dialpad is also constantly upgrading their software so that functionality is gained. User adoption was really amazing. All it took was just making a few outbound calls and a few short videos to train our people.

Overall excellent usability, with a few adjustments I feel this is the absolute best VoIP system out there. Just a clarification on the licences and limit the interface to reflect what licence we have. There should be a back or redunancy feature to Fonality Server, If there was a mistake we should be able to resort back to a usable state asap. Before implementing changes to the server, there should be a trial or sample of the changes to make sure it behaves as intended before effecting customer experience. It would be nice to have a demo version of Fonality interface so possible clients can truly evauluate the system. Because of the quality, it would have made it easier to convince the owners to make the transition sooner

Fonality has been available to us 99% of the time. There have rarely been any lengthy outages.If any issues do occur, their support staff is available around the clock to help.This is important, since communication is a big part in our company and availability of the phone system is important in maintaining this reliability

Fonality's performance is excellent. The phones work flawlessly and the calls are clear.It is a well put-together system that does not need daily support.It is not complex from a user standpoint, as most of our staff are quick to learn how to use the phones. More systems should strive to work as well as Fonality's

  1. Dialpad Onboarding support was okay. I think this was because we used a 3rd party vendor. We had a lot of issues with provisioning the phones.
  2. The Dialpad sales rep forgot to mention that Dialpad is only compatible with Polycom desk phones so we bad to purchase new phones last minute.
  3. We were supposed to get 3 months free when we signed up with Dialpad as a courtesy but the charged us for the 3rd month. They have resolved this error but I think there was no designated point of contact on Dialpad's end to help things move more smoothly.

Because of their customer support and their attention for details in our problems that we face during our initial stage. We simply love fonality just for the way we are treated when we reach them with our fonality issues - they take it seriously and resolve it as early as possible and the most important part is we dont need to keep on insisting them to do so.

Training was provided by the in-house IT administrator.

Training was excellent, but most of what they had was webinars and not real world situation for our company's need. It would be better to have them remote in my local computer and test my system using inbound / outbound calls. This would have made it easier to learn and more relevant

Everything from the installation to the implementation has been great with Fonality, there is a lot of freedom to how the system will operate but the freedom comes at a cost of more technical experience to make sure it is configured correctly. The staff is very helpful can will make sure that the system is setup correctly and work perfectly.

Alternatives Considered

Dialpad Talk

We used to use 8x8 Express and while we liked it, we found that Dialpad had more features (like syncing events, emails & shared documents via G-Suite) - especially the awesome Voice Intelligence (call transcription) feature. Dialpad will even transcribe a voicemail while it's happening, so can read the text while you're on another call. 8x8 Express did not provide this and had a similar price point to Dialpad. We also found Dialpad to be more user-friendly than 8x8 Express - especially when using the web version. Both 8x8 Express and Dialpad have web meeting / conferencing built in. I must also say that Dialpad customer service is quite impressive.

I have not used any other VoIP system that I have been paying for. I hope that Fonality proves itself enough to where I will not have to switch. So far, for the price and the functionality, this is my recommendation for small businesses. I might recommend going with a more high end phone to increase functionality, but other than that, the system is one I would definitely recommend.

It is easy to scale this system, as long as you have the proper technical staff available to support it. Adding users and phones is straightforward. The main work involves having the physical network in place and configuring the networking equipment.Overall, it is not that difficult as long as all of this is in place.

Return on Investment

Dialpad Talk

  • Ability to have employees work from home which allows us to keep a smaller office environment.
  • Efficiency increased with integrating calls / meetings in one app.
  • Previously had to restrict employees to primarily work in the office or forward items to their home or mobile phones. This allows them to have the same tools in or out of the office which reduces issues when being contacted by clients.

  • We are still new to Fonality, but having the flexability has proven quite successful thus far.
  • The management of incoming calls and voicemail messages has really helped us to be able to follow up with potential clients.
  • The service at Fonality helped our new business take a leap into 2017, and we expect much growth with the continued use of Fonality.
