Each platform is robust in its feature set. Where Talkdesk crept above all these is in the following areas: ease of use, easy to configure, easy to maintain, easy to integrate yet robust out-of-the-box feature set. Expanding our staffing in order to optimize or maintain the …
Chose Talkdesk
Talkdesk blows these two competitors away. There is not a contest in my eyes if you ask me. Talkdesk trumps these competitors (if you even call them that) with their many different customizations, ease of use, remote workforce options, and the ability to be able to manage our …
Chose Talkdesk
Compared to the other contact center options, Talkdesk was affordable and was easy to setup. What set Talkdesk apart was easy integration with other software. Including Slack, Zendesk, and Salesforce. The new enterprise app center should make some great add-ons available. …

Nextiva
We have over 50 locations and an in-house call center, so having a united platform to perform customer service duties is absolutely critical. Nextiva Contact Center is a very effective solution for large teams and multi-location businesses. If you need to regularly report on call volume and agent performance, it is extremely helpful. A very small team may not benefit from it as much as a medium to large scale one.

Despite the cost, the ease with which you are able to navigate the system is actually tedious. We have to have specialists in the business to aid in getting some of the reports and making changes to the system. Calls are delayed between us and customers as there is no tower on our continent for the system.

Pros
Nextiva
  • Nextiva allows you to set up the Contact Center to fit your exact needs.
  • The Contact Center has a consistency of quality. Dropped calls or interrupted calls are very rare. The voice quality is always great on both ends.
  • The Contact Center allows us to have a Call Center with 50+ numbers to assist our customers and attendees. At the same time, it allows us to have a main line for our Customer Support, Sales, etc...

  • We were able to replace on-premise solution with Talkdesk Cloud solution within project timelines
  • We were able to migrate region by region while keeping our existing IVR numbers to minimize the impact on customer.
  • We were able to integrate Talkdesk with our cloud CRM, AWS storage and reporting applications
  • The IVR flow changes are easier to understand and manage and to onboard any new team members to support the agents

Cons
Nextiva
  • I'd like to be able block numbers globally through the web portal rather than having it done through tech support.
  • Mobile app sometimes continues to ring even though the call has been picked up via the desktop app or physical phone.

Talkdesk
  • From experience, customer service is terrible, we've had 5 account executives over 18 months, extremely difficult to get timely answers to pressing issues.
  • Integration with other tools, such as ServiceNow, is not truly integration (in my opinion). There was a marked difference between what the salesperson communicated during the evaluation period and what we actually got once we purchased and implemented the product.
  • We continue to have stability issues which force our agents to restart the Talkdesk client. I frequently receive vague error messages ('something went wrong') that can be frustrating as there's no actual detail to what happened. To be fair, it has improved since we implemented the tool, but if you were to ask our agents what frustrated them, Talkdesk would be at the top of their list.
  • Being a multi-channel platform was one of the things that drew us to Talkdesk; however, the chat channel lags way behind voice in customization and reporting.
  • Lack of training resources. The 'Talkdesk Academy' is often very out-of-date. Would be nice to have actual webinars or online training (even paid training) for various functions of the tool like reporting, WFM, IVR, etc.

Outside of emails, Nextiva is the only way to contact our customers and their attendees, and the only way that they can contact us. We are a smaller company, but with Nextiva we can operate and manage our contact center easily no matter how much our company grows in the future. Nextiva is a versatile tool that can fit any need

Renewing the use of talkdesk is a cost-effective solution for our company. By continuing to use it, we can leverage potential cost savings and efficiencies. For instance, talkdesk may have features that automate certain processes or enable better resource allocation, resulting in reduced operational costs. Secondly, renewing the contract contributes to enhanced customer service. Talkdesk likely offers specific functionalities that improve customer satisfaction and support. This could include features such as intelligent routing or real-time analytics that help agents provide personalized assistance and resolve issues more effectively. Thirdly, renewing the contract ensures seamless integration and compatibility with other systems or technologies used in our company. Having a unified system across different departments or functions enhances efficiency and reduces potential disruptions caused by incompatible systems. Moreover, there may be benefits gained from data sharing or streamlined workflows enabled by an integrated platform.

Usability
Nextiva
The usability of this software is pretty easy if you're using it every day to monitor or take calls. The reporting does take some time to get used to accessing, but once you are well versed with the system it is very easy to tailor to your needs

Talkdesk so far has lived up to its mission grants us a platform to use and engage with our population. They are able to reach us consistently and as they need with very few interruptions in services which for a tech company is not an easy thing to achieve.

Support Rating
Nextiva
They are very nice, friendly and you can really feel their willingness to help. They are proactive in finding out potential issue and they sometimes extend their service by calling me and making sure I'm still happy with the service. They have Live Chat support, email, and hotline that you can use to connect to them.

If Talkdesk had a dedicated phone support line I would have given this rating an overall 10. Their knowledge base is absolutely HUGE and at times very helpful. It's easy to search through and their customer support chat system works perfectly fine, but there are just some times that you need to speak to a human on the phone to ensure you are always on the same page.

Training was simple as the app is easy to use. The phone has gone through upgrades since but it's very adaptive and doesn't require a complete session. There are articles available for self help in case something is forgotten. There are a lot of functions to talkdesk and we have not used all of them

Really easy to get set up out of the box. Anything I needed to understand further, I was able to just hop into the Academy and self-teach. I could then bring my team-members to those same sections so they could learn as well without me having to put together complicated SOP's / etc

It isn't just about clear calls- which they have in spades. The features on this platform are like little productivity cheerleaders. We can track calls, analyze performance, and even set up call routing so the right seller gets the right lead

We were unable to easily access call metrics using WM. Since the switch to Talkdesk, we have not had to struggle with our reporting at all. All the information we need is readily available and can be exported. We are also able to modify the metrics that we need and have them compiled in different ways. The information on Talkdesk is modifiable and makes it easy for us to get the numbers that we need at the end of the day.
