User Testimonials
Five9IFS Customer Engagement
Likelihood to Recommend
Five9
Five9 is suited for both large-scale and small-scale companies. If your company deals with marketing more than the technical aspect, Five9 gives a mode of communication and getting in touch with our customer or client in the most reliable way rather than setting physical meetings. In the covid period, Five9 has made it easier to work on calls.

There is genuinely not a lot to dislike about the application. Maybe it's due to legacy implementations and updates, but sometimes the request for service from the suppliers can take too long and is drawn out. IFS Customer Engagement is helping us to make sure we're able to get the right parts to the right resources with appropriate skills for each request. This saves time on resources in planning and optimization of routes. IFS has also allowed connecting to supplier APIs to be able to do real-time stock checks and order to enable us to reduce stock levels to the minimum levels whilst still hitting key targets.

Pros
Five9
  • Easy dialing and call logging. The process of starting or answering a call, then logging a call disposition with its notes, is simple and easy.
  • Voicemail drops. You can pre-record voicemails to leave for customers without needing to speak the voicemail content each time. This is a huge timesaver for our reps.
  • You can customize the call dispositions / call labels to match what's used in your CRM.

Cons
Five9
  • Java based desktop application is a pain to keep updated.
  • The user interface for the agent desktop application is clunky and outdated. It could use a facelift.
  • The help center for documentation isn't well organized and the documentation needs substantial editing.

Performance
Five9
The system's performance is great. Page loads quickly. Reports are generated quickly and sent to our email or FTP. The integration did not impact the performance of our other applications. We have not seen any drop in the performance of either applications since we performed the integration.

Support Rating
Five9
Five9's Customer Support team is also based in Manila Philippines, thus turnaround email response times for our reported issues are great for our requirements. Their CS agents also facilitate mobile calls to followup on outstanding issues and operate on a 24/7 schedule. We've also had experience working with the senior tech agents to investigate recurring issues to completion.

I took the certification course for administrator and also received some tips while working with the developer during implementation. The UI was very intuitive, so I was able to figure out how things worked when I configured the users, skills, campaigns, IVR scripts. I worked with the Five9 AI team to beta test Agent Assist.

Initially selected Five9 but have since switched to RingCentral which has given us what we needed. Better CRM integration, simpler and in my opinion more robust reporting capabilities and the same omnichannel solution at a fraction of the cost

IFS Customer Engagement allows efficient manufacturing reporting for the business to select whether to use standard/default reporting or actual reporting or combined reporting. Since the system has business logic to look through the defined rules, there is minimum manual intervention. IFS Customer Engagement is working throughout the organization in different roles and it is being rolled out to additional countries as part of a replace and enhance strategy.

It was very easy to add additional licenses. Once we placed the order, it was activated the following day. Since it's web-based, it's very quick to deploy across multiple sites.
