There are things l like about the system, including its full and simple-to-use reporting features, integration with Salesforce, and the ability to take advantage of call routing across different areas of the company. And there are things that I feel need improvements, such as email routing, SMS capability, and supervisor view.

It is great for a small company like mine because it's allows for easy scalability - very easy to do. Allows ease of hiring just the number of people that we need from all over the country, so we get the very best at the least cost. We've actually used it to hire internationally - again we can watch the results and address issues immediately - give immediate coaching to improve our results for our clients.
I love the ability to watch calling campaigns as they unfold. Sometimes there are issues that arise which need immediate attention from both my client and myself. Our clients love that we can give detailed feedback to correct a situation or address an issue. Clients are impressed at the level of support we provide to ensure their overall successful campaigns!

Pros

NICE inContact CXone

  • Having a Technical Account Manager readily available, who we meet with on a weekly basis and who updates us as she's updated
  • When there is an issue, they are constantly providing updates as the issue is being worked on and this helps their users give better direction as we try to help our members.
  • They have so many wonderful features, there hasn't ever been a request of ours that they cannot fulfill. It's wonderful!

  • One of my favorite features is the ability to customize routing. Quite often a caller is told by a prospect to call back at a certain date and time, the caller can set that and the record will pop up in the front of the database on that date and time letting you know that you have a call to make.
  • We also send out information on behalf of our clients to prospects, which we do directly out of VanillaSoft. After the information is emailed the system will actually let us know when it was opened and moved that prospect record to the front of the database to be a priority in call rotation.
  • I also love that we were able to customize it so that the callers have everything they need to see right in front of them. We have a area that has the prospects information, name and address, then an area that has required information fields with questions the caller needs to ask and place answers in the appropriate fields, then we have an area with a notepad, an area to access the calendar, and an area that gives the caller all the previous activity on the record.
  • These are considered strengths for us as all of these examples make my job and the callers job much easier and saves us a ton of time and money.

Cons

NICE inContact CXone

  • Banner displaying the dashboard outside InContact - will show on the person's bottom screen & display number of calls waiting & number of agents available.
  • Bigger screen in Studio when you want to edit "Play properties" the box containing "Sequence" is really small & you cannot see when a message was last updated/added.
  • Ability to delete old users in Central.
  • Ability to save some reports as favourites.

  • Duplicate accounts: there should be a way to merge duplicates so multiple salespeople are not calling on the same prospects.
  • Calendar is a little cumbersome.
  • When searching for contact and it's not the correct project name, we should be able to arrow back and it should show the list again without having to search all over again.

We will most likely renew our use of Attensity because of our history with them. Overall it has been a good relationship, however we do feel as if we could be getting more value. A big initiative of mine this year is to start getting as much value out of the product as I possibly can.

It was very simple to use and training on it was very easy. We have a new system now and, though I do love our new system, I do miss the simplicity of NICE. I loved how easy it was to make reports and find call recording so fast.

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.

Response time was acceptable for the relatively few problems any of our users may have encountered. Fortunately, such occasions were rare.

Alternatives Considered

NICE inContact CXone

Interactive IntelligenceCisco Express and Enterprise. InContact CXOne is very solid as a cloud platform and has great ease of use. However, it has areas of improvements to make it better, especially the Engage side of the company should be taken out of the stone age. Look at Calabrio's reliance and support as a benchmark for recordings.

All these systems were great, but VanillaSoft in my opinion is less complicated, easier to use and navigate, as well as VanillaSoft is just as productive, fast and effective as the others are. Their customer support is second to none. I feel very very confident in trusting VanillaSoft for my CRM needs.

Return on Investment

NICE inContact CXone

  • 1 minute savings per phone call (in technical support) just from integration with CRM data in Salesforce
  • Our internal service engineers are extremely pleased with the intelligent routing and priority given them, because of the ability to know which phone calls are from our service engineers.
  • We are now able to sell and deliver "premium" level support to customers who want it because we can detect them on the call automatically and prioritize automatically.
Hans Hong | TrustRadius Reviewer

VanillaSoft

  • VanillaSoft has drastically reduced my expenses associated with prospecting (fuel, car maintenance, etc.).
  • I was able to make a profit during the COVID shutdown, in a time where I would have continued to have overhead and no income whatsoever.
  • I made 6 appointments today where generally I would have made 6 appointments in a week.
