Oracle CX Service (formerly Oracle Service Cloud)

Oracle Service Cloud is well suited for a business to consumer contact center. It can handle large volumes and millions of transactions. I have seen contact centers with 2000 agents but it can also work well for a small contact center with 10 to 50 agents. With integration with a VOIP phone system - additional automation can be incorporated in to the system. There are multiple ways to automate agent tasks to make handling an incoming incident as efficient as possible.

[It's] well suited for cloud support applications as there's no installation or maintenance required.

Cons

Oracle CX Service (formerly Oracle Service Cloud)

  • Getting better - Improved integration to Oracle Sales Cloud - but Oracle is now addressing this with Oracle Engagement Cloud as a combo of Sales & Service Cloud.
  • Bad - Perception problems in terms of robust functionality vis-à-vis the same service product from Salesforce...
  • Problem - Oracle has difficulty getting current customers to renew their Service Cloud subscriptions. Pricing vis-à-vis SFDC may be the issue.

  • Its ability to switch between tickets, assets, etc., is a little clunky. A static menu bar would be helpful.
  • The ability to see the latest update in the ticket view.

Although RightNow is extremely flexible, the flexibility comes with a price. It is often not intuitive which settings you need to change (and under which menus these setting are buried) to enable the system to do what you want. Also, sometimes the system can do things you need, but you don't initially realize it. When RightNow sells a system to a new customer, I think it should come with X hours of consulting time with a RightNow expert. The customer should be able to consult with this expert over the next year to get advice concerning how to configure the system to achieve desired needs. Often RightNow Support would just answer "no" when I asked if I could do something, but then I would find another way to achieve my goals after talking with other companies using RightNow.

The learning curve is fairly steep; but for something that has this much capability, it's nearly impossible to make it "easy". The layout and organization are at least reasonably intuitive. The hardest part-- the "weakest link"-- is the portal development (where you can build help centers and other end-user pages.) The capabilities there are significant, but the learning curve for that part is especially steep and it takes a fair amount of expertise to be able to update it.

Technicians seem to be assessed based solely on how quickly they close the issues. I've had to reopen requests multiple times because they didn't actually solve my problem. Also, when the issue has even a moderate amount of complexity, the technicians often instruct me to "open another SR" to handle the other issue. I'm the customer, I shouldn't have to follow their processes, they should handle that for me. But even when I create the new SR, it seems like their right hand isn't talking to their left - they aren't reading back to the previous issue for context. So I get bounced around a lot, and I have to tell them how to do their job

I have not had to contact them very many times, but any instances I have, have been very positive. I like the personalized one-on-one nature of the help they provide to each of their customers. They pay attention to what your issue or issues are and help follow that through.

Work with a RightNow expert during the implementation. Explain features that would you like to have. Often, somebody who really knows the system can show you what you need to do to achieve the desired results. Where a RightNow support engineer or a consultant might say "the system can't do that," a RightNow application engineer will listen to what you need, and often come up with an alternate path to achieve it

Alternatives Considered

Oracle CX Service (formerly Oracle Service Cloud)

We haven't looked at any other products because the bring your own licenses to other cloud services is cost prohibitive. However we are positioning ourselves where we could use Azure for our Windows servers, AWS for our Linux, and Oracle for our DB services. We have been looking at Equinix as an intermediary solution between the cloud services.

When looking for solutions for our business, I personally looked at Aautotask. I am not the decision maker so I don't know what my boss looked at in full. Autotask seems good. It looked like it got a bit complicated and may be for very large enterprise customers. Just lots of features that we don't need.

Return on Investment

Oracle CX Service (formerly Oracle Service Cloud)

  • Oracle Service Cloud's ability to tie together the support department in our company to the customer as well as other areas of the company has narrowed the gap between support issues and resolution by placing everything into one easy-to-use and navigate interface.
  • Allowing the customers to create their own email or chat support cases and insert them into the system for action by our support department helps provide quicker service response in some cases.
  • Reports that indicate case status and time in system help to prioritize cases that may require more attention or more immediate resolution is a very beneficial function that we utilize regularly.

  • As a single freelance consultant Sherpadesk has exceptional ROI because it's free but if my company had more support people I would definetly go with SherpaDesk again.
