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.

Verint
On a whole Verint WFO is well suited to our business, it provides exactly what we need for forecasting & scheduling along with an very intuitive holiday booking system, throw in the adherence piece and score cards that are available all in all the system is very robust. It is easy to use once you've received the proper training provided by Verint and they are always on hand to support when issues arise, but in the last 5 years I have had roughly 4 issues and 1 of those was my own mistake and not the system so I think that is a strong point for them.

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.

  • Blended forecasting – shift variety.
  • Verint Workforce Optimization has the ability to schedule blended shifts, e.g. agents could theoretically be on chats in the morning, phones for an hour after lunch, then back on chats in the afternoon.
  • Automated task scheduling - educated planning.
  • We'll be able to automate the scheduling of meetings, training, or coaching without impacting service levels. For team leaders, this will alleviate the need to guess the most appropriate timings.
  • Scorecard reporting –Visibility over performance.
  • Scorecards are a ‘one-stop-shop’ to view individual performance. They allow for performance-based data capture and reporting, giving greater transparency and access to data on performance at an agent level.

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  • The user interface for the agent desktop application is clunky and outdated.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 think the system needs better documentation, hard to find all the features and where to configure things
  • I think the system should come with all the plugs in upgrades they change you extra for, a little to much nickel and dimeing on getting all the needed features
  • Email notifications for out of adherence were sometimes inconsistent, and this was not fixed with all the different upgrades and patches on WFM version 10.1

Honestly, from what I hear from other industry experts, other WFO systems have the same support issues we have with Verint. We know the product and the system is maturing and becoming more stable. The business has no issue with the Verint product and is seeking to grow not only what we have in place today, but are very interested in other products, such as BackOffice Analytics, that Verint has to offer. I would just love to see a stronger partnership with Avaya.

Performance

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.

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

Nice - a little more costly than Verint. Qfiniti - no comparison - Verint is so much more!! Automony Aspect We selected Verint because of the options that were well suited for our organization. There are several providers that do not compare against these top providers so remember...you get what you pay for. You have to think of it in terms of the value in addition to the "need at hand" that this system can bring to you.

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.

  • The system require constant manual oversight to keep it running. The Monitoring tool provided is very unstable and cannot be relied upon.
  • User Administration is cumbersome and time-consuming. There is a lot of redundant effort required to set up new users.
  • The integration between WFM and the Recording platform is shaky, and will often stop syncing for now apparent reason.
