Talkdesk so far has lived up to its mission grants us a platform to use and engage with our population. They are able to reach us consistently and as they need with very few interruptions in services which for a tech company is not an easy thing to achieve. I would definitely recommend

Zoom Phone is great for remote work. It's pretty user friendly. You can easily transfer calls to those who have Zoom extensions programmed into the address book. Obviously, this would apply to most tech nowadays, but call quality can suffer during bad weather.
Read full review Pros 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 Read full review Transcribes voicemails. Great for those verbose folks that leave long voicemails. Loud and clear volume quality! Great in a busy office with lots of people talking. Easy to keep track of who has called me. Has Caller ID which is helpful. Read full review Cons Frequent bugs Easier access to the 'recent activity' when on a call with a customer Be able to change your future status, while still on a call, like it was possible before Editable 'home' page Sending user to offline or another status randomly Less phone delay Read full review Voicemail handling for queues and groups can't have their own shared voicemail box. They recently starting limiting how many greetings you can have per user, so you have to do some annoying workarounds by setting up additional users to accomplish it when you have a number of ACD. Does not yet support texting. I wish they had built in text to speech to quickly build new greetings or phone tree options when needed. You can't just assign a phone number to a call queue or group. You have to use a specific user. Fortunately, the cost is reasonable per user so its not a big problem, but annoying none-the-less. The Salesforce integration could be better, I hope they improve it. For example, voicemails and call logs don't show up in the native lightning case feed, but as tasks. When callers call, I wish it would pop up how they called and what tree they went through. So we could see what number they called into and perhaps what menu options they used. I'd love to be able to ask them questions to gather info for reps answering phones when appropriate.

Talkdesk is an enterprise grade solution for telephony service. Zendesk eould be the only other option in terms of solutions I have implemented and seen in practice. It is easy for business users to learn how to use talkdesk and develop call routing paths dependong on the nature of the customer's request
Read full review Usability
Talkdesk has been helpful in allowing our agents to conduct their jobs in an efficient way by utilizing the phone systems. We are able to transfer calls easily to other agents or ring groups. This is a feature I use daily, and I couldn't imagine having a nationwide company without this service.

Zoom Phone has a very sleek design which makes it very easy to operate and use both in the setting up of and interacting in a meeting space. That being said, certain features can seem a bit crowded while trying to screen share or display video which somewhat defeats the purpose of the application as compared to a standard conference call.

I have never had a problem making a phone call or an issue getting a line out. More times than not it is the customer that will have a bad connection or have a lot of noise on their end. I have had experience w/ dropped calls, but never not being able to access a line

We have never had a Talkdesk performance issue. As long as you follow the system requirements, which are MINIMAL, neither will you.

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.

Support have been great during the time for implementing Zoom Phones to our team of 50 people. There were times where they kept supporting us through links but more and more we had actual people getting back to us via emails so we are very happy overall. The product is so great, too.

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. There are articles available for self help in case something is forgotten. There are a lot of functions to talkdesk and we have not used all of them

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

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.

The big draw for us to Zoom Phone is that they shook up the market. They entered the phone market by taking their overwhelming success in video conferencing, and bringing that innovation and skill to designing a game changing phone system. There is really not much difference among the other systems, except maybe their interface. They're a dime a dozen. Zoom does things differently, focusing in on the needs of the end users, and delivers a solid system that is worry free for I.T. departments

We have over 200 employees in 11 states across the United States. Everyone uses Talkdesk. I believe that says a lot about the product and its flexibility. We need to be able to rely on system in order to assist our customers. Reliability and sustainability is important to our success
Read full review Return on Investment Decreased average response time on emails - due to proper forecasting by our team but of course by usage of data received from this tool. Increase in quality audit scores through weekly reviews by this tool. Employee morale and company survey as agents are not stressing with the easy use of this tool. Reduced average handle time to ensure first response is addressed or first rings are addressed immediately. Read full review We're better able to work together as a team answering phones multiple people can be logged in to answer at the same time. The voicemail transcription feature helps with sharing messages to different departments. Overall, we're able to answer more calls and have fewer callers being sent to voicemail.
