User Testimonials

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.

SpiceCSM
SpiceCSM does an excellent job at allowing agents to view customer information, access customer contact documentation history, and create cases to send to other departments or to have the account managed beyond an agent's capabilities. It is a great tool for tracking individual account activity such as returns, contact history, contact disposition history, and general account information. The analytics of SpiceCSM could be improved. The reports are not easily customizable, which leaves users frequently having to manually process data in Microsoft Excel.

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  • The user interface for the agent desktop application is clunky and outdated.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

Online Training
Five9
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

Scalability

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.

Return on Investment
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.

SpiceCSM
  • Ability to analyze customer contact topic trends.
  • Ability to sort callers and filter them to certain phone lines based on customer account information.
  • Large data was lost after 90 days (contact level/call notes and details), so we have to save and backup the data ourselves. This takes up a bit of storage space.
