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 suited for any support team, customer experience team, or customer-facing team that wants to measure the satisfaction of their customers. Especially large/scaling support teams that handle inbound support of any kind.

Pros

Oracle CX Service (formerly Oracle Service Cloud)

  • The ease of customization for our environment is very helpful.
  • The layout for our basic users is easy to understand and the flow is logical.
  • The ability to query previous incidences is simple and easy to export in order to provide information to other departments.

  • The fundamental tool for customer satisfaction is exactly right. The way they allow us as agents to share details about ourselves, and humanize the process, has made a huge impact on the customer experience we provide. Our customers feel more inclined to leave us feedback and it allows us to get a real understanding of each of their individual expectations.
  • Customer Journey. From the beginning through the Sales process, through procurement, through trial and through now being users for over a year, the Stella Connect team has been incredibly helpful, informative and has provided us with the exact amount of interaction we need. They are very good at respecting your time while making sure they get in touch when necessary. New features that are relevant to our use case are sent my way. It's one of the only product update emails I actually read. They're incredibly responsive and very helpful.

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.

  • I wish there was more connection with our ticketing systems analytics. We measure KPIs from Stella, but also workflow related metrics within our ticketing system. Right now, managers have to go into multiple platforms to find the corresponding data. I wish Stella had an analytics connection of some kind.

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

They are the absolute best. My Sales guy Corey D. and my CSM Tim P. are totally a part of the team. They have been incredibly helpful through the process pre and post-sales and have become good friends. I appreciate that I feel like our team's success is always at the forefront of their minds.

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.

I actually liked AskNicely, but the UI was better and more aligned with our brand on StellaConnect. Also, the values and research behind how they build and structured their satisfaction surveys really aligned with the experience we wanted to provide to our users.

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.

  • Implementing Stella Connect was such an easy decision. Before, we were working with "yes, I'm satisfied" or "no, I'm not satisfied" and felt it was an incredibly unclear and polarizing experience, as our users were forced to pick one or the other. Most often, we'd get a negative rating with a comment saying that the experience was fine, but some feature in the product was missing. This left it very difficult for us to really gauge the experience we were providing and how to improve. In addition, agent motivation was incredibly low and impossible to improve because they were left feeling like their scores were not matching their experience. Needless to say, implementing Stella Connect improved all of these issues 10-fold. The ROI has been incredibly substantial. We've been able to improve CSAT scores and properly measure the rate of first attempt resolutions. Team morale is at an all-time high, and our customers even love the experience.
