Oracle Service [(formerly Oracle Service Cloud)] is well suited for cross-channel contact center service which includes live chats, virtual assistants, email support and case management. It has a social tool that keeps tabs on your customer interactions within your social media platforms and your website. You can provide your customers with a knowledge base for self-service with information that they need by posting content and resources.

Data integrity - if you have users making mistakes in the system, you can add validation with WalkMe without the need for developer time and reduce those errors and upstream problems, and related costs Reducing support tickets - if you have support tickets coming through about how to do tasks in a system, you can reduce the time and cost of your support staff answering these tickets by addressing the queries with WalkMe content Change management - ease users through change with guidance and provide in-system surveys Onboarding - bring new users quickly up to speed with onboarding tasks Automation - automate your regular processes and cut system time, freeing users up for more important tasks Process/system analysis - use the analytics to track where users are dropping off in processes and making errors and address these with WalkMe content User experience - make your system more user friendly Read full review Pros Oracle Service cloud handles incident management extremely well. It can accept requests from multiple channels. That includes email, website, phone, chat, SMS & some social. Oracle Service cloud provides a knowledge base that can be used by customers or by agents. It can move consumers to self service for most issues. It also has good feedback from customers and agents so that the knowledge can continue to be updated to push people to more self service. Oracle has a good consumer portal that can be used as a website or typically is used in conjunction with a main website as a contact center or help center site. This allows the contact center to manage both the knowledge and the request and the interactions with the customers. Oracle Service cloud is built to provide a turn key solution for CRM/Contact center with some minor configuration. But it also has the ability to be highly customized to meet any companies needs. Much of that work can be done via the configuration options already in the system. It also have a full set of SOAP and Rest APIs for integrating to other systems.

WalkMe can be used by new users easily and quickly, yet provides a many advance features for power users to keep exploring and creating innovative solutions--there are always some things that you have not used earlier Great analytics on our platform, usage and adoption by users, and surveys Very friendly community of users who help each other all the time and structured upskilling programs, weekly tips keep the learning going Read full review Cons This is only an occasional, user problem; when searching for specific records, at times we receive an error that the maximum size has been exceeded and therefore does not yield any results. This is particularly frustrating when trying to search for a specific street address across several years. I found OPA challenging to use. Read full review Firefox plugin: The only time I use Firefox is when building a walk-thru. I would like to be able to use Chrome to build the walk-thrus. Logic: Walk-thrus, Launchers, Shoutouts and walk-thru steps use different logic. I can't always fire something based on a click or URL when sometimes I would like to. Design: You can use CSS to customize the look of your walk-thrus, but there isn't a way to remove the sidebar color of the walk-thrus. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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.

WalkMe has done a great job of making their tool easy to use. However because it is a Firefox plugin it causes me to need another browser and sacrifice the left 2 - 3 inches of my display, when working on a laptop this makes it a bit painful. Also when publishing you can organize your list of walk-thrus, the window size is small and limited to the constraints of the WalkMe tool.

We have never had issues with downtime or it not being available. Upgrades and maintenance also happens in weekends or at night.

We use a lot of tabs and fields on our incident workspace, which should slow the system down, but it's still quite fast, and we continue to optimize whatever is possible.

The vendor offers customer support to users who maybe stuck in usage of the platform in a number of options and this ensures that one does not get frustrated at all in using the platform. This enhances the trust held by the clients concerning Oracle CX Service [(formerly Oracle Service Cloud)].

The WalkMe Support Team was phenomenal. My support rep made a genuine effort to ensure my success with using the WalkMe Software. She was kind, patient, and very knowledgeable on the software. If there was a question she did not know the answer too, she would find the answer and get back to me as soon as possible

Most of our training was given while doing user acceptance testing, and getting the system approved by the market. When ever we were in doubt, our implementer helped us along. Later on we started exploring by our selves.

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

TCS' customers who also selected Oracle Service Cloud over
Salesforce Service Cloud
in the Mfg. vertical in which I work, did so because of the robust ability of Oracle Service Cloud and its APIs to integrate with other value-add solutions for manufacturers such as IoT applications, Big Data Analytics, and Field Service applications.

My understanding is that WalkMe was selected based on its capability to support our requirements for our enterprise software. We wanted a product that allows us to provide help at the point of need, provide as little or as much help to guide the user to successfully use the product, and a product that is scalable and can support our growing capabilities.

We have never had any down time, slowness or anything. Any error or instability that has occurrred has so far has been caused by user errors.
Read full review Return on Investment We have an internal chargeback for servers and we anticipate that the cloud will save us some money or be cost neutral for us. We plan to see a reduction in the need for data center staff and server provisioning as we move more environments to the cloud. We are now responsible for our own destiny with the ability to ramp up and down our servers based on need. We can also monitor our costs more closely with the metered service and turn off the environments when we are not using them. Read full review With a promise to help onboard, we found that as people interacted with the walk throughs they didn't get any significant value. Self-service wasn't improved, in fact, we got more complaints from the walk throughs than help from them. NPS surveys were a nightmare to try and integrate with our CRM so we could action the results. Lost time and energy without much support from the WalkMe team No improvement to our Product Adoption, so all cost and time and energy spent on implementation was a loss.
