Well suited:Environments that don't require texting, and where users are highly technical and able to troubleshoot on your own. We've found that we need an internal tools manager AND an expert on each sales/support team to successfully onboard new team members and ensure current team members know how to use the tool.Not well-suited
  1. Organizations that rely on texting.
  2. Organizations with low tech literacy on their teams.
  3. Organizations with little ability to manage tools like this.

Talkdesk

It seems to me that it is good for sales-driven companies. We use it in our customer service department which covers both sales and service and its perfect for this application. Our call volume is generally pretty low. I'm not sure how well it would work in higher volume environments. As a supervisor, I do appreciate the ability to monitor calls, and call transfers work quite well -- you have the option of doing a "warm" transfer, where you can talk to your team member while the caller is on hold, or a "hot" transfer, where you just connect the caller to your team member directly.

Pros

Five9

  • Availability- Five9 has servers in multiple regions and an entire team monitoring 24/7 to make sure we do not have down time.
  • Scalability- We can quickly increase our licenses up and down based on the needs of our clients.
  • Security- We do not have to worry about security.
  • Quality of voice- we are able to use Five9's soft phones and sustain a high quality of voice.
  • Single code set and cloud based software as a service. Competitors we looked at were typically more of a collection of applications.
  • Speed/Ease of use- We can manage Five9 with a single administrator vs an IT department.
  • Compliance- for outbound dialing compliance is built in. We also use their TCPA solution for dialing cellular phones.
  • Future proof: Five9 continues to invest in making their virtual contact center better. This in turn makes our service offering stronger.

Talkdesk

  • The talk desk reporting page is easy to read and allows us to maintain our call queue seamlessly
  • Talk desk statuses help us stay organized and know what people are working on throughout the day
  • Transferring calls is made easy with the warm transfer option

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  • The user interface for the agent desktop application is clunky and outdated.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.
Ariana Thompson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Talkdesk

  • We have experienced call drops from time to time.
  • There are times when callers are unable to hear our support agents.
  • Call metric reports are not very customization with Talkdesk site. So you may need to pull call data into excel to create executive reports.

It's simple to use. A classic phone digit call-bar and a clear reporting page which displays call progress and agent status. The call-bar automatically populates ZenDesk tickets for all on-file numbers. Unknown or unassociated emails can be easily copied and referenced or applied to a new contact slot. Nothing fancy, as it should be.

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.

Support is extremely well delivered in a timely manner. I have not had any situation where I have felt not supported by the team of Talkdesk. The support is there, and it makes the whole experience so much nicer, unlike other platforms were you feel isolated once you have purchased the product.

Alternatives Considered

While we use Invoca and LeadsPedia for more granular tracking and data, Five9 has always sort of been the end all be all. If it's in Five9, it's pretty concrete that the info in Five9 is the correct information. It doesn't matter which campaign a call came through, if it came through at all, it will be seen in Five9.

I like both Freshdesk and Close.io in addition to Talkdesk, but the main difference is Talkdesk is better for midsize-to-large enterprises. Close.io works well for 10 people, and Freshdesk can work well for just 1 or 2 support reps, but Talkdesk was the right software for a company of our size. Talkdesk is also a good solution for multi-department teams - ie, sales and support, rather than being JUST a support software or JUST a sales-team-geared software

Talkdesk

  • So far, Talkdesk has been a great asset to our Customer Service Department. We have been in business for 10 years and this software has been great and multifunctional.
  • During outages with Talkdesk, it does impact our ability to reach out to our customers. Hoping for quicker resolutions when these situations happen.
  • Talkdesk is a wonderful tool during review time. Management is able to see each individual's stats and create a thorough report.
