We currently have three departments using Cisco Unified Contact Center (UCCX). Our IT Helpdesk, Admissions department, and our college playhouse and theater. This system allows those groups to dynamically manage incoming calls around employee schedules.
  • It allows administrators to block out windows of availability and in-availability.
  • It supports having lots of call recipients, and can be configured to specify exactly how those calls are handed off to recipients.
  • It integrates well with other Cisco products, such as Call Manager (CUCM).
  • Once it is set up, it can be managed relatively easily, but the initial setup can be quite involved and require expert resources.
I would recommend this product for an organization looking to stand up a call center, particularly if they already use Call Manager.

  • Global Contact Centers
  • Centralized management and data acquisition
  • Clientless/webbased CTI solution
  • Very agile VRU/IVR
  • Easy to use reporting platform
  • Virtualization support
  • Reliance on Microsoft is huge pit fall
  • Need ICM modern API's
  • Multi hypervisor support
  • Support for automation tools (puppet,chefe,etc)
  • CVP migration off of windows
I would only recommend Cisco Unified Contact Center for large 500+ agent contact centers.

  • Integration with Cisco's HCS

  • Reporting
Cisco Unified Contact Center is well suited for clients that are currently using Cisco Call Manager platforms or Cisco phones.

  • Bad experiences with Cisco Unified Contact Center? I didn't have anything that I found bad with Contact Center. It always seemed to be hardware.
I feel that a larger company with multiple locations would be well suited for this product as it is easy to manage. Phone replacement is very easy. New user setup is just as easy. Easy to train others to use at other locations as well.

Cisco Unified Contact Center Review: "Easy to use and reliable."

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

CUCC is used to manage multiple call queues across seven different campuses. We also use it for voice prompting menus and to play informational announcements.
  • CUCC has a fairly user friendly programming interface. Once you create scripts, it is very easy to duplicate them and edit them for each particular use.
  • The step through reactive debugging is a great tool to test out new scripts or to troubleshoot existing ones.
  • The integration with Cisco Unified Communications Manager works great when creating new Trigger numbers for applications.
  • The agent interface is not the best. When using device mobility for agent extension login, the login process is quite cumbersome. More development on the one button login would be appreciated. The Cisco Agent Desktop work OK for login, but the need for LDAP authenticated users on the phone login really causes problems. If the agent could use a PIN instead of a password, it might be easier. Most Cisco phones do not have QWERTY keyboards.
  • The programming relies on knowing HTML for certain processes like holiday schedules. Adding a few other date related features to scripts that do not rely on HTML might be helpful
Cisco Unified Contact Center is well suited for call center queues. It could have more features to allow call center queue managers to make changes without programming assistance.

Cisco Unified Contact Center Review: "Contact Center Express 9.x"

We use Cisco Unified Contact Center Express for multiple departments that handle inbound callers. This product can handle anything from basic call queuing to complex scripting to accept caller input and pass this data along to agents to handle the call more effectively. Cisco’s real time statistics and historical reporting help supervisors manage their agents and plan for staffing accordingly.
  • Ease of scripting. This is done with a java based visual application to help with setting up call flow in a single pane of glass.
  • Reliable. With maximum uptime and high availability this product ensures even 24-7 shops stay operational.
  • Integration. This product allows seamless integration into 3rd party applications, such as call recording and wall boards.
  • Remote access. Would be nice for supervisors to be able to use a mobile app to manager the call center without being on corporate wireless.
  • Agent Desktop improvements. This is outdated.
May want to consider Contact Center Enterprise if your business needs geographic diverse call centers or follow-the-sun support.
Express should fit well for 80% of businesses.
