Chose Talkdesk
We selected Talkdesk only because we were getting mixed country data on Zendesk and thus felt the need to move to our own system. Zendesk provides data such as first response time, tracing a call and the transfers and changes in that process is easier, drawing data is far …
Chose Talkdesk
The new features that Talkdesk has made it easier for us as a company to make the change, the software is easy for agents/supervisors and managers to work with. They are always trying to improve the features as well as Support is awesome to work with.
Chose Talkdesk
Talkdesk doesn't require code writing and/or programing. It's a super easy "off the shelf" solution. Agents also find their interface super easy to understand.
Chose Talkdesk
The reporting features and usability is much better than these other two options. 8x8 and Incontact (NICE CXone) were good when we had a smaller team of 10 to 20 agents on phones, but now that our customer service center is 50+, Talkdesk was able to handle the growth, and then …
Chose Talkdesk
Talkdesk was a lot cheaper than all of the alternatives and the level of features that they provided combined with the time it would take to go live made it an easy choice to choose Talkdesk over the heavier competitors.
Chose Talkdesk
inContact has all the functionality but it's clunky and support is not as great. Five9 is a great price but the UI is not as strong. We chose Talkdesk because we wanted something we could use as we grow. We also thought Talkdesk had the most potential for being a leader in the …
Chose Talkdesk
We selected Talkdesk because of the reliability and support offered by the team.
Chose Talkdesk
Talkdesk has trouble stacking up against these other major players when it comes to a traditional cloud contact center. The other platforms are more mature and loaded with out of the box features and integrations. However, Talkdesk has something that the others cannot provide …
Chose Talkdesk
Incontact was functional, but hard to use and understand, especially for newer employees. While the incontact call routing was expansive, their interface was also a little clunky. Incontact also did not integrate with any of the third party products that use here, which was a …
Chose Talkdesk
It has been good to integrate with our CRM, but Nice was more flexible on customization. Granted it took more time and back end knowledge from us to build out the Nice system how we wanted it, but it was well worth it for the customization aspects. The ability to integrate and …

NICE CXone offers a comprehensive range of tools that cover every aspect of customer interaction, from omnichannel communication to analytics and workforce optimization. It makes it very simple for us administrators to provide everything the customer needs. At the moment, I cannot think of a scenario where CXone is less appropriate, at least when comparing it to its competitors.

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

  • The managers can easily setup a schedule via HOO for Holidays and during emergency which is more helpful.
  • The studio is more friendly with action items instead of coding, also the help option is very handy and easy to understand.
  • The call trace is more helpful and exact view of how the call process and it's very helpful for troubleshooting
  • Reporting is very easy and helpful.
  • Dashboard is awesome, no word to describe it

  • 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
NICE Systems
  • There can be changes in interface of the app, however it's still very good
  • I would appreciete detailed web page with all necessary information, but when I need anything, the customer support is very quick and provide all the information
  • Hardly to find any other :)

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.

Nice made it possible for employees to work from anywhere with access to the internet, it made it possible to extract data from contacts in a very thorough way. In addition, the meticaes can be fully customized and the day-to-day monitoring of the operation is more visible.With nice, contacts with clients abroad became easier.

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
NICE Systems
Things could be improved, such as call history and a user-friendly UI. Besides that, it was a great way to track and manage our team remotely, which changed the game for us post-covid. Everything else was pretty simple to use whether it was answering calls, dialing a customer, or leaving a voicemail. Overall, everything is very straightforward.

Performance

NICE inContact CXone performs very well even on old computers that are limited in resources. I use a older computer with limited memory and it seems to handle NICE inContact CXone very well in most cases. There will be times when it acts up for whatever reason bust over ninety percent of the time.

Support Rating
NICE Systems
inContact only allows specific users to contact them for support. Even though I use the product daily and it accounts for a large amount of my workload, I still have to contact an authorized user to create an incident. These users are managers and their schedules are very busy. This can result in delays in incidents being opened and resolved.

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.

Implementation Rating
NICE Systems
In spite of not having a relevant participation in the implementation process, I understand that the main insights are, internal tests before presenting to the final customer, this avoids the highest delay in the acquisition process, such as more frequent errors, tests that may mitigate the errors at the time of implementation.

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

When it comes to this specific situation (cell centers) NICE definitely has an ADP beat. The analytics, scheduling, and forecasts are extremely well-tailored for this situation. ADP has a more comprehensive solution in my opinion - I feel their UI and mobile app are also more user-friendly. But in terms of performance management functionality, NICE has a more robust system and is able to create additional metrics if we need them When I used ADP there were no custom options available.

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.
