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.

SendBird is well suited tool for those who are having sound technical knowledge and in-hand experience of app development and APIs. One might find it difficult to integrate if not having a technical team or a good technical background. Once implemented, using or management is not an issue. Startups having low budget might find it a little bit costier.

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.

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.

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
