Domino is best in medium-sized businesses of 20-100 employees. It's too complicated to implement in very small companies unless you have good external resources. It scales up very well for larger companies but the pressures of users wanting particular "brand-name" software can become difficult. If you want a restricted "extranet/portal" system for a limited set of members it's a great system, particularly if you add a Domino CRM on top. Unlike Microsoft, you never have to resort to command-line tools, like PowerShell, in Domino to get things done.

Twilio

If you have a business page on Facebook, having Twilio’s chat not feature is a must! No more missed chat messages or clients getting upset because of a delay in replies. Twilio has helped on several occasions answer simple questions, so I didn't even have to answer the chat message manually. It also enables you to recognize when spammy messages are trying to get through.

Cons

HCL Technologies

  • User interface needs to be modernised.

Twilio

  • Setting up response sequences should be more intuitive like an email sequence software or a chatbot service where you can send users through flows based on actions.
  • Less code setup or having a graphical user interface to set it up would be nice then to be able to just export the code of what we need and send it over to developers.
  • Easier multi-media sending for images, videos, or files needed.

    Twilio

    Twilio has well documented APIs and examples. There are several tutorials, videos and Q&As regarding their services. So, usability is very good. I must say that advanced knowledge of telephony, API/Programming and error-handling is essential to make good use of Twilio. It's not just plug-and-play unless you are integrated with a system that has all of the programming built for it.

    I have not had to communicate with Twilio support in the last 3 years but my past experience with them has been very positive. They replied to my previous requests promptly and kept me well informed to resolve my inquiries. With their documentation that's available, I hardly imagine why anyone would need to contact support since it's all there in a concise and easy to understand format. It would probably take you longer to type out a support ticket than to just open their doc websites.

    Alternatives Considered

    HCL Technologies

    We use SharePoint, SQL and Teams but only for the things that they excel in. For example, we use teams for small team interactions (including external participants). We use teams for meetings too. We've discovered that Teams collaboration is not as full-functional as Domino and more importantly, that our members (financial services) do not trust the Open Office365 cloud. SharePoint and Team collaborative features are often blocked in our member organizations. Domino is much easier to identify and unblock at the firewall level. It's much easier to restrict collaboration to approved options in Domino.

    Twilio

    I receive regular unsolicited communications from Twilio competitors but I do not have the time to review them, given there is no reason for me to switch. Twilio works great and its pricing is acceptable for our situation. Investigating point solutions for text only or voice only would complicate our infrastructure and vendor management and would require some expensive system changes.

    Return on Investment

    HCL Technologies

    • The immediate impact on my organization as a non-profit is cost. Enterprise pricing for a Domino solution is exponentially more inexpensive than more popular applications.
    • Of the most obvious impacts is user familiarity. Given a vast majority of the employment pool having familiarity with MS products, orienting new employees to Domino\Notes is burdensome. Adoption is slow and resistance is high.
    • Hiring Domino administrators and developers is increasingly challenging.
    • The recent sale of the Domino platform away from IBM is concerning.

    Twilio

    • Twilio WebRTC allowed us to move a bulk of our communication to the cloud, giving us a lot of visibility on how we were communicating with our customers.
    • It also gave us analytics on how much time users spent on communicating with each other over calls and helped us build features around it.
    • Twilio became the center of all communication on our platform. From chat messages to phone calls, it powered everything.
