GoContact is a good choice for medium and larger contact centers who deal with more than 2k calls per day for example. This software is a leader in managing Outbound Campaigns and it's easy to use. It's also suitable if you don't have a CRM and want to manage tickets and omnichannel customer service. If you just want an easy to use and easy to setup software and just making occasional outbound calls there's cheaper solutions.

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.

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 External SIP Phone method Managing DDI's Workforce Management 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. Read full review Usability
Every user adapts quicky to the workspace and functionality but technically it should be easier to deal with the soft phone configuration. Team Leaders and Business Managers can get all the information they need to make decisions with a high level of usability. GoContact should think about bringing their software to an app version like their competition is doing.

Their support was in fact an extension of my team since day 1 and helped us in a big way with training, set up and solving operational doubts and issues in a fast and truly interested way. Personally, I had an account manager 24/7 at my disposal without any additional charge or something. They also care about our business and provide tips so we can get better results.

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.

Since I was looking for a solution that allowed me to move about 50 door-to-door sellers to remote telemarketing work I needed a solution that was easy and fast to set up and to manage from a distance. GoContact is a leader in massive outbound solutions and very well recommended by people in my network.

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.
