Considered Both Products
Five9
Chose Five9
Five9 has way better features than RingCentral - Five9 has way better features including the Call script, software integration, and ability to manage outbound campaigns while RingCentral doesn't allow these features
Chose Five9
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.

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.

The ease of use and file retention/retrieval is key. The adjustment from an e-mail-focused workflow to the RingCentral Contact Center was easier with the organization. Recall and search features mimic Outlook and allow me to quickly find what I’m looking for. RingCentral Contact Center is not ideal for communication with external partners, so we still have to rely on Outlook e-mails for that.

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.

  • Reliability: Our previous service was prone to outages, RingCentral Contact Center has been rock solid as long as we've used it.
  • Integration: Our IT team was able to build a custom RingCentral Contact Center dashboard on our website for our salespeople to manage inbound/ outbound calling. From there we were able to send call data directly into activities in our ERP (Acumatica).
  • Ease of use: It works well whether in the office or WFH (which many employees do regularly.

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  • The user interface for the agent desktop application is clunky and outdated.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.

  • I would like to be able to text from our main office line rather than only my office direct line, so I can keep my direct line private
  • I wish it was easier for all users to be able to toggle between calls ringing at their desk phone and cell phone
  • It would be nice if the process to add other team member's numbers to our desk phone screen was easier

We have no intention of renewing our contract with Ring Central. We have had multiple outages in the past 2 years. We have been without an account manager for the past 4 months and the resolution of open issues takes 2-3 months. We were being misbilled for cancelled services for almost 12 months. We are not satisfied with the quality, support, or price of the service

RingCentral Contact Center is not just only an app or platform which allows the company to manage the telephone calls, messaging functions, social media and emails, but also allows advanced features like the possibility of easy integration with other industrial systems, and customer/call analysis functions as well. It also supports and included with AI technology as well into some extent.

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.

We honestly did not need much support but whatever we wanted was resolved via email and that experience was nice but took a bit of time

RingCentral Contact Center's application is much more intuitive than Nextiva's application. It's also easier to configure. It also has a lot of functionality that Nextiva does not. For example, RingCentral will transcribe Voice mail messages for us, whereas Nextiva does not. RingCentral also sends us notifications when a customer sends us a text message, whereas Nextiva does not.

Five9
  • Cost savings: Five9 replaced a premise-based outbound dialer and a different virtual call center solution for inbound.
  • Cost savings: Five9's voice over IP is less expensive than the land lines we were using.
  • Cost savings: Five9 requires significantly less management than our previous solutions.

  • With RingCentral Contact Center we were able to connect with our customers. The feature that allows the call to be sent to the first available rep ensured that this happened.
  • Also, my favorite feature is the call recording and transcription feature. This allowed me to get the customer's emails without asking them to repeat if I missed them the first time. Hence, happier customers and more meetings.
  • RingCentral Contact Center also made it very easy to set up a mailbox for customers to leave messages and reassure them that they've connected with the right person.
