FreeConferenceCall is well suited for a low price service to connect with others. The onboarding is super simple and easy to use. The ability to record to the cloud is also useful. The ability to host a large number of people is great. The only scenario I can think of less appropriate is that the interface just looks a bit dated, so maybe it is not the best for the wow factor of dealing with clients.

As I said, I really like the platform because you consolidate everything in the same place. But for Brazil, it still has to adapt. For example, the time zone, the dialing rules. Dialing control is still not clear, it is not transparent. It still needs to evolve.
Read full review Pros The online portal to access call details and recordings is very easy to use. The functions that are offered beyond the free plan are competitive with other providers. I feel that our calls are secure with our own personal access codes and the same number always being used. Read full review One thing that we really love is the bot capabilities. On our inbound calls for our contact center, we've got a voice spot, and that routes all of our calls for us. We've managed to move away from a traditional IBR and move to a single question for the majority of cases and the customers go through so much faster. So at the moment, the time it takes for a customer to get to our queue is about 27 seconds. Previously that was well over a minute. We've seen huge improvements with it. Read full review Cons Recently callers cannot get onto the call Users on the call get bumped off Non-transparent policy about why problems are occurring. If FreeConferenceCall.com can't reliably provide free service, just tell me that rather than blaming it on a law that changed and local carriers causing the problems. The real problem is that the law did recently change, which allowed companies like FreeConferenceCall.com to collect a revenue share for all calls placed through certain hubs--even free calls. This loophole was removed recently, and I believe the service issues I've been experiencing are being used to extort users to buy a paid service in order to receive trouble-free service. I found customer service representatives rude and dismissive Read full review Mostly just little things I'd like to see. I know that, obviously, moving from one platform to another one, there's going to be bumps where we're used to doing something one way we have to learn the new way. So that hasn't been too much of a problem, but there are little quirks I think could be better. I think searching through the menus could be a little easier instead of always having to go back to the main menu so then go to the next menu. That could be a little easier. And mostly just other little tweaks like with gamification on some of the scorekeeping would be a good thing. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
It is so user friendly.

The upcoming upgrades working with Genesys Cloud and Salesforce are very exciting. Even though we don't use Genesys Cloud to the fullest extent it can be used (we just migrated a year ago), when these upgrades roll out, I am very excited to see what it can do to for our agents. I think they are going to be very impressed

I am and have been extremely pleased with my use of this product.

Everything is very good. It is very useful, friendly to users and it makes our work easier than what we expected. I think that I don't need any help from someone on how to use Genesys coz basically they will directly feed it to you without any hassle on using it.

We had a couple of times where there were application issues or unplanned outages, but they were resolved very quickly. We were never in the position where it was a total outage, which is very important.

The pages are loading quickly but not every time. There is a delay sometimes. About the integrations, everything is working as expected, there is no slow down.

I haven't had the need to call for any support at all yet for FreeConferenceCall.com. It has just worked splendidly for me. That being said, when I first downloaded it and got started using it there was a wizard which made every section and button very clear on what it does. It was easy to get started by following the wizard. I imagine then that their customer service will be just as good.

Support does indeed resolve the issue but they seem to be really slow and I have to stay on them to get my ticket handled. Everyone I have interacted with is very professional and pleasant. Other than being slow its been a good experience

Genesys team that provide trainings are friendly and professional. They helped us to understand well the product and the functionalities. The training was detailed with use cases. At the end, we got a task to develop that ended with success and we got some Genesys rewards. It was amazing experience

I have taken the preparatory course for Genesys Cloud Certification. I must say that it is a good training for administrators and analysts. The bibliography is very clear and is easy to identify the topics, which are conveniently separated. It is, in my opinion, mandatory for those who want to exercise the position of Genesys Cloud platform administrators.

It's a no brainer!

The support engineer that I partnered with during the implementation was exceptional. Every element of the process was done together and the end result of the efforts to grow the knowledge to be able to hand over at the end enabled a pretty smooth transition.

So this doesn't have the polish that say Zoom or Teams has, but for free, you can't complain. The real big unknown is anything to do with security where a product like Teams is great. Zoom and Teams seem to have become standard that everyone has installed and is familiar with, but the adjustment to FCC is pretty fast and painless.

We actually evaluated quite a few products before we moved to Genesys Cloud CX. We had a vendor selection process which went for about six months, and it was pretty rigorous. Five9 was one of them. I think we didn't check out Topdesk so that they were out of the picture, but I think Nice inContact was also there as part of that. So those were the two top contenders. We like Genesys for their workforce management. Five9 - I think they were using some age-old software, to be honest, that was not as automated as Genesys, so we liked it.

There are 2 types of billing models available which are "Named" and "Concurrent" based on the type of roles users will perform in Genesys Cloud CX environment (eg. Agent, Supervisor, Administrator, and Business Users) Also, the billing period/frequency starts on the actual day the platform is delivered.

We were able to successfully implement Genesys Cloud (formerly PureCloud) to multiple departments successfully with a range from low call volumes to very high.
Read full review Professional Services
Professional services are definitely much more experienced than the support teams, and the price for their services is very fair. I wish that the support team could help answer simple questions about work that the PSS team does, however, so that we do not have to use our SOW for simple Q&A emails.
Read full review Return on Investment We pay next to nothing for our access and it creates a professional means of connecting with our clients. Connecting via FreeConferenceCall.com has helped our business stay afloat during this challenging time by giving us multiple ways to connect with our clients. FreeConferenceCall.com has allowed our team to more efficiently collaborate by being able to access calls even when they aren't able to be present during the live conversation. Read full review That's a good question. I've been with the company for seven months. I don't know if there's been a huge impact on ROI or finances. Now, in Genesys, I need a carrier that fits directly into Genesys. So, for us, that's going to cut the costs of having a traditional SBC with a traditional Telco. Genesys offers us that. You can't do that with another traditional telephone system. So one of the advantages, I think, for the dollar, is that I can bring my own carrier that fits directly into Genesys and eliminate the physical layer, so I can also play with my channels on that side. I can manage my telephone according to the times of year when the call centers are busier or less busy. From a financial point of view, that can be a positive thing. In terms of return on investment, the company I work for had already been on Genesys PureConnect for years. So moving to PureCloud was a logical one because PureConnect was disappearing. I'm not sure if I have the answer, whether we've made savings or huge savings. One thing's for sure: ease of use, the whole customer experience aspect, the fact that we can chat and interact by email, these are things that weren't possible with the old versions. That's a positive thing. Read full review ScreenShots Genesys Cloud CX Screenshots
