Overall, the platform is good and provides different channels and collaborative functionalities. The interface is modern and intuitive the users tend to like it. Regarding the technical part, it's overall good support and has great training, however, as with any tool, there's always room for improvement.

Zendesk Talk is a great partner that helps us in the customer care area by managing every type of contact with customers (both phone calls and emails). I know there is also the possibility to have integration with instant messaging apps (like messenger and WhatsApp but I have never used them in my experience). In my opinion, the best scenario for Zendesk Talk is represented by a context with a high amount of contacts/requests where a unique platform could be a help both on the external side (customers) and on the internal side (a lot of colleagues who are working in the same area and have to work in a coordinate way). For customers, they could benefit from tailor-made answers, also based on past contacts for the same topic, and avoid waiting times during phone calls, with an immediate follow-up. For internal work management, operators don't overlap in a single request, and even if the same operator is not available the one who manages the request later has complete visibility of the entire topic from the historical point of view. Last but not least, I think that Zendesk Talk helps a lot in the context in which the request's speed is a KPI to manage constantly.
Read full review Pros Documentation is stellar, and I am able to search Beyond training or the knowledge base for anything I need. Call flows and IVR is stupid easy to build and work in. End users (CSRs) like the interface and seem to be able to navigate easily in the system. Read full review Call recording is a nice feature! It is great for training purposes and for quality assurance. The metrics you get from Explore are a great insight into how the team is handling the call volumes. Zendesk Talk has met most of our needs. It can be a bit unreliable at times. Read full review Cons Client customization Help articles are lacking in detail, sometimes contain broken links or have out dated and/or are lacking information Features are missing that were in PureConnect, e.g. Drag-and-drop to transfer "Too many clicks" is often a complaint, e.g. to transfer a call. Read full review The lag on the phone is by far the most annoying thing with Zendesk talk due to the voice over IP. Using the Reporting feature in Zendesk has never been a walk in the park. We have to customize a lot of fields and when something doesn't seem to add up, it at times feels like pulling teeth to get to the final answer of what went wrong.

Genesys Cloud CX is a solid product and deserves to be in the upper right quadrant in Gartner. They are true innovators in the customer experience space and based on the innovation taking place monthly, they will likely stay in this spot. The product gains new features every time you blink your eyes.

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.

There seem to be so many pages and options for support - but none of them are very seamless and some are very hard to maneuver or manage. I would like to learn more about the product features and tutorials etc. - but have had a hard time finding appropriate content.

In our experience, we have had to go through many support people then ultimately getting frustrated enough to go directly to our point of contact who then doesn't always seem to be able to assist. We tend to get the support we need when it is escalated up to me and I reach out to our point of a contact person to express our frustration.

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.
Read full review Implementation Rating
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.
Read full review Alternatives Considered
I worked in a much larger company when I used
and it had been heavily customized for them (over 10 000 employees) so the comparison is a bit lopsided. I found
quite intuitive but the features of Genesys Cloud CX certainly outweigh that one thing.

and Zoom phones cannot compare because they have no ticketing systems. Zendesk Talk was the only option we considered because we were already using Zendesk for our email ticketing with customer concerns. We then expanded to using Zendesk's chatbot and then the Zendesk Talk system to keep it all integrated and streamlined.

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 SLA improvement (thanks to better overview during real-time scheduling). Better/easier work with multiskilled users which offers more possibilities to work with FTEs (less FTE needed). One time big investment was needed for hardware (laptops, headphones) as we used to work on desktops previously. Read full review We were able to reduce global headcount by 20% in our call centers. Allowing customers to leave voicemails creates the personal touch needed and really increases our customer connectivity score. We saw increases in our CSAT scores after the implementation of this solution. Call handling time and case reopen rates both decreased. Y/y it decreased 18% and 60%.
