Fuze Voice is a cloud-based unified communications platform that includes IP-PBX voice service, video conferencing, and collaboration tools such as content sharing and instant messaging capabilities. It also integrates with a wide range of popular CTI, CRM, and click-to-call solutions. Unified Communications as a Service-I implemented Fuze in an environment with approximately 90 users, for a manufacturer of marine equipment in Fort Lauderdale. It is currently used across the whole organization, which consists of facilities in Fort Lauderdale and Holland, in addition to a mobile service group working around the world. Fuze addresses the distributed nature of the workforce and allows voice, video, and text collaboration between our offices and mobile users.,The Fuze implementation process was the smoothest and best-organized roll-out of any major infrastructure project I have been involved with. The engineering and sales team provided a clear roadmap, stuck to it, and performed flawlessly. The system stability, voice quality, user provisioning and de-provisioning, and overall ease of use is something Fuze has done particularly well. Whatever I need is there in the portal, and the 'take-it-for-granted' feeling the users have is a huge strength. Continuous improvement- in the two years this company has used Fuze we have seen numerous updates to the softphone, new features in the desktop phones, and constant communication from our customer advocates and support team. Tech support- rarely used but responsive and experienced, a definite strength.,A more aggressive end-user training and help scenario. Users who are unfamiliar with UCaaS and are wedded to the traditional role of the desktop phone can be slow picking up the idea of a UCaaS account and all the benefits and possibilities. More visible links and reminders on the phones, softphones, and apps, and easy access to short videos put right in front of users' eyes might help user adoption.,10,10,10,All 90 users are on Fuze voice, most of them with a desktop phone. Some users use the softphone, some use the app, and there is a lot of crossover in that most desktop phone users also use the app on their mobile device. We were able to start fresh with Fuze as we built and moved into a new facility, so all new infrastructure. That put everyone on the same platform at the same time.,Nextiva and RingCentral,Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure, Code42 (formerly CrashPlan), Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Dynamics GP,70,1,Stable, high-quality VOIP cloud-based PBX mobility conferencing,Mobile service teams keeping in touch using softphones and mobility,Continued expansion of conferencing and mobile app; Fuze constantly updating and adding features,9,Yes,Price Product Features Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor,The UC space has evolved significantly in the last couple of years. I am pleased with Fuze and we will be with them through December of 2020. In the third quarter of 2020 I will begin evaluating, but I expect continued evolution and competition like Microsoft Teams to continue to pressure companies like Fuze. Predicting how I might change my evaluation and selection process is premature at this time. If I was renewing right now I would definitely stick with Fuze.,Positive- better communication from our mobile users Positive- no problems Positive- stable, quality UC,Implemented in-house,Yes,Change management was minimal,Firewall rules Making sure AT&T gave up the phone numbers on time,No,During our provisioning they were exceptional in helping troubleshoot firewall issues and helping us get our rules correct. Not really support, more configuration, but excellent expertise. Fuze support has done everything we have ever asked in an efficient and timely manner.,Desk phones are desk phones, dial tones and buttons so the basic functionality is familiar. Adding personalized aspects like speed dial and backgrounds is easy and intuitive Starting meetings is easy.,Yes,10A great phone service with easy user setup.We use Fuze across the entire organization. Our business is based around using our phones and we need a strong and reliable provider to make sure our phones are always up and running. Fuze not only makes using their service easy to use but it also helps make the support and setup easier for me on the back end.,Availability to use your work number anytime anywhere. Our recruiters make themselves available as much as they can. Being able to answer calls from their worklines while not in the office and make calls from their work numbers is a big deal. Setting up new phones and numbers is very easy with their hub. I don't always have to go directly to their support team to setup new users. As long as I have the mac address of the phone and we have free numbers I can set a new user up in minutes. Their support team is great as well. If I do need to get help with an issue their support team is quick to respond and very knowledgeable about their systems. Their team is also able to fix most support cases within the same day.,Their admin portal that I use to login to can sometimes feel clunky. There is a lot of button pressing to get through the menus and you always have to click a refresh button when adjusting search parameters. This is different from the hub, which is more for user setup. The Fuze app is not always the most reliable. While being able to use it to call from your work number anywhere is nice. Calls sometimes have one-way audio and, on occasion, caused users calls to go directly to their voicemail. The user portal could use a refresh as well. Some of our users use an e-fax number for sending documents to clients. The feature is often missed because it is hidden inside a menu instead of being out in the open.,9,9,9,Fuze Voice was widely adopted as it is our main phone system. Most of their features are used company wide and we haven't had any issues getting new hires to use their systems. The only system that is a bit underused is the desktop app. While it is used for meetings, the chat feature isn't used much outside of my department. I think that has more to do with everyone being more comfortable using Google Hangouts as it is right there in the email account when they sign in, and not another app that needs to be opened.,,Adobe Illustrator CC, Microsoft 365 BusinessGreat Product once all the kinks are worked outFuze is being used in all departments in our organization. Our sales department uses Fuze for their day to day calling, customer meetings and interactions. We also use Fuze in all of our meeting rooms. It addresses our voice\telecommunication needs.,Once setup and properly configured, audio quality with Fuze is great. Fuze eliminates the need to purchase hardware handsets as calls can be made via the Fuze application and wireless headset. Provisioning new users and removing users once they leave the organization is very quick.,Increase compatibility with various wireless headsets. Adding the ability to forward to a number via App settings vs Use the same password to login to Fuze app and Fuze portal Option to record calls via Fuze Application,7,6,7,It took us a while but once all the kinks were resolved, Fuze works well for our organization. All departments in our organization use Fuze to communicate daily and rely on Fuze as one of our main communication tools.

The voice and ACD components have been absolutely fantastic. We have since implemented for customers of ours as well with nothing but good reviews.,Voice Calls - soft phone has been able to replace my desk phone while still maintaining all the functionality that I had before and then some. Portability - I run this frequently from my iPhone when I need to contact folks and need their number or if I just need to join a meeting while I’m the road and then easily transition to my softphone once I’m at my computer. Portability 2 - I can run this from home when I’m working remote with no issues. Sound quality is very good!,We tried the Fuze conferencing but it was just too difficult for external users to easily get connected correctly. We ultimately moved to Zoom which is very simple for people to understand and use even if they have never used it before. I have no other complaints.,10,9,10,Our users, with the exception of the small group every organization has that dislikes change of any sort loves it.,RingCentral,Zoom, Skype for Business (formerly Lync),365,3,Call Center Soft Phones Smart Phone Apps,White labeling Call Center services,Conferencing if that part improves over what we tried when we implemented it Lync integration if they offer it for On-Prem implementations of Skype for Business,8,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability,I would make sure I understood exactly what types of Lync integration was offered..,It has saved us a lot of money Resources that used to support our old in-house phone system are now free to do other things,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was a big part of the implementation and was well-handled,Old Phones that would not work with Fuze Phones that needed to be flashed before we could get them to work with Fuze Conference Room Phones that had to be replaced with newer models,No,They have always provided exceptional support.,Making Calls Queue Management,Haven't found any,Yes,9Fuze -- Meeting, Chat, and Phone Solution For The Growing BusinessWe currently utilize Fuze across our entire organization. Other than email, it is a heavily-used source of collaboration between teams and employees for internal communication, external meetings, and our phone system. Previously, many of our tools were on different platforms, all from different vendors, and often lead to confusion and training issues, whereas with Fuze, everything is centralized into one package that allows us to focus on one product for our communication needs.,A single platform that covers instant messaging, screen-share meetings, and phone calls. A fast, intuitive interface which assists in quickly onboarding new employees to the platform. Client support for many devices-- physical phones, mobile phone apps, and desktop apps for multiple OSes.,The support portal system can be difficult to navigate. An idea System is implemented, but needs dramatic improvements. The administrative interface can feel disjointed (some features are available in this portal system, and other features in a different portal system).,9,7,10,Adoption of Fuze Voice within the company was quick and fairly painless. The primary issue that we encountered was re-training employees on how to use the meeting features of the Fuze platform, as they were used to other solutions, such as GoToMeeting. Once re-training was completed, this resolved the majority of adoption issues -- we have had nothing but great feedback from our personnel on the Fuze platform.,Jive Hosted VoIP, Microsoft Teams and GoToMeeting,Microsoft Office 365, KACE Endpoint Systems Management Appliance, CylancePROTECTFuze as a UCAAS solution: Could be better and offer better customer serviceFuze UCAAS is used across our company within the back office and front office.

For example, wireless phones going offline. Poor account management and customer engagement.,6,5,7,It's widely implemented but adoption is not easy.

Lots of employee training has been carried out.,,Microsoft Office 365, Adobe Illustrator CCCloud based phone systemFuze replaced and is still in process of replacing our old hardware phone system across the entire organization.,Fuze is a modern solution for communication in and out of an organization. It acts well as a softphone system, from my perspective its best use in the U.S. Works as a conferencing tool, both for audio and video.,Functionality outside the U.S. still needs improvements, in audio quality and range of dialing options. First level support is poor. Complicated requests from tech support take too long and are very clumsy.,7,6,9,I can only report on my location, users are still getting used to working long hours with a headset. Some won't adopt it and are using a USB phone handle for Fuze. Age is a factor in adopting Fuze as a desk phone solution, as younger employees adopt it more swiftly.,,Webex Meetings, Skype for Business (formerly Lync), SlackFuze UCC helps me sleep at night.We use Fuze across our entire organization. We also use it in our Customer Service call center and our Crisis Response Call center. The instant messaging feature is probably the most widely used part of the platform although we use all modules from the company. The consistency of the customer service and dependability of the product addressed some pain points we had experienced with previous vendors.,Instant messaging using a single contact list across the organization. Easily configurable and manageable call center module with data reporting on the user level. Video conferencing is easy to use and integrates well with other applications such as Google Calendar and Outlook.,We would like a bit more control over the user account names. At this point, we have to put in a ticket to change a username. At times the size limitation for eFax has been a challenge, but we have found ways to work around that. I would like to see a bit more customization availability on their web portal.,10,9,8,Fuze voice has been widely adopted by our organization. We decided to take the opportunity to implement softphones and remove the need for traditional phones on desktops. The adoption of a virtual phone took time, but our users are now very comfortable with the virtual phones on their PCs. We were able to seamlessly deploy the application using Active Directly group policy which simplified administration for my staff.,Mitel MiCollab, Cisco Hosted Unified Communications Services and Windstream Cloud Connect,SysTools G Suite/Google Apps Backup, Hyper-VFuze is a good, cheap solution.

Particular allowing supervisor to add and remove there agents. Better analytics,7,8,6,Well as you probably know, most people don't like change. However, I would say it's been about 50/50 with the organization. As Fuze upgrades their product, more users will adapt. User are able to see present status of the each other. Also Fuze voice allows you to be mobile and can assure you will experience the same services.,,Oracle Access Management, Microsoft 365 Business, UltiProFuze ReviewAll desk phones and conference phones are Fuze phones within our company.,1st line of defense with any Fuze issue is handled well.

However sometimes when they roll out updates, my conference phones go down and have to be reset. Definite room for improvement there.,Verizon Communications OutsourcingFly High FuzeWe have been using Fuze for almost 3 years now across all of our Technicolor US region & EU regions. There are regularity issues in the APAC region especially in India & China where Fuze wasn't able to provide their solution for telephony until now.,Fuze is really coming up with a new unified collaboration features & upgrading it to benefit to clients. Such as softphone services for both desktop, web & for the phones. The Fuze project team is good enough to analyze the customer's requirement & come up with a very positive deployment approach. Delivery of hardware phones & timeline is up to mark from fuze. Fuze support seems to be very impressive nowadays.,Fuze could still improve on the support side. Need to engage with our Site IT teams to discuss the Fuze issues if the site is really facing. The Fuze support team needs to understand the concern about the issues. At least once in a quarter fuze need to conduct a survey on site level to improve the service quality if anything change is required from our local IT on the Fuze solution.,8,6,7,Most of our users are very comfortable using softphone services. This solution has been made much simpler & for users who travel frequently this softphone solution is making them connect & communicate easily. Challenge: No Fuze Solution so far for India & China, as well as other similar countries.,Webex Meetings, InterCall and BlueJeans,Webex Meetings, Avaya Communicator, SlackService needs improvement, good application thoughFuze is being used by the entire company. Fuze Desktop allows people from all departments to communicate internally and externally. I have been supporting users from other departments within the company for more than one year now.Although Fuze Desktop shows some errors once in a while it is indeed a regular application used in the company.,Fuze has many features that allow you to communicate Fuze allows you to create meetings You can use Fuze on your smartphone (spp),Fuze has poor call quality sometimes. It's not easy/intuitive to manage some features in Fuze portal. Fuze support takes long time to get back to you.,4,3,6,Many people in the organization adopted Fuze very well, but it's never possible to get 100% satisfaction. Many users preferred the old phones since Fuze was very inconsistent in the beginning, had poor quality and as mentioned previously, Fuze Support was not good and reliable help for our team.,Cisco WebEx Room Series (formerly Cisco Spark Room Series),ServiceNow, Absolute Endpoint Security, Microsoft Office 2016Fuze is good, not greatFuze is the primary (and only, currently) voice and contact center provider for our company. All our global users use it. We currently use this in conjunction with Zoom and InContact.,Voice payload, especially with the advances to the mobile and softphone clients. Basic contact center routing. We have call centers with low numbers of users who only need basic routing. This helps us avoid a more expensive solution that is overkill. TAM program: Amanda Juliano. We have a fantastic relationship with our TAM. She is extraordinarily responsive and gets great results for questions and issues we have.,Overall reporting. The advances in reporting have come a long way, but there are areas where data and data manipulation fall short. Limiting live data to 90 days and only allowing long term reporting to a BI tool is hampering the tools that can be used by standard managers. We would like the ability to run trending outside of a BI tool. We need to be more granular with individual call details. (ex. ID'ing fats pass calls versus standard queue calls). Removing tools before a full replacement is ready. Removing data older than 90 days in reporting pages. Going GA with new softphone clients before full functionality of the old tools is in place. Moving reporting to a new platform without copying old reports to the new platform and copying current, saved reports for users. These are a few examples where a new solution was introduced before securing the current capabilities in the new tool.,8,7,7,With our mass migration to Fuze, we had an environment of forced usages. We have had little issues with desk phones. But over time, the softphone and mobile apps have improved greatly. When we first moved to Fuze we had very limited adoption using the remote tools even though we have a large, remote workforce. As the tools have become more stable we have seen adoption grow in parallel.,,Zoom, NICE inContact CXone, Microsoft Office 365Just about ticks the box but could be so much better with more direct customer service/engagement.We have approximately 200 licenses used across our company for IM/Chat, Voice, Video & Collaboration meetings.

Billing descriptions/period not always transparent Customer Engagement - most of the time you are dealing with non-personal support/escalations/billing . Little or no ownership of issues or listening to the needs of the business. Lack of consultancy - i.e. how to get the most out of the solution Reliability of the Fuze system is not 100%, with sound quality distortions, interference, voice over. And when we experience issues, Fuze don't seem too interested with resolving, engaging or supporting.,6,6,7,Inconsistency across the company. Some have adopted it well. Others are struggling and when there are reliability issues, they are less inclined to use.,,Skype for Business (formerly Lync), Zoom, Cisco Webex Room Series (formerly Cisco Spark Room Series)Multiple Remote Locations - Fuze Voice ReviewFuze Voice is being used across our organization for its meeting, soft-phone, and messaging capabilities.,Fuze is open to feedback that directly impacts and implements feature requests made by customers. Recent updates have increased functionality. Ample notice of upcoming updates reduces downtime and allows for user notifications.,Support and documentation can be difficult to access. Status page is helpful however finding configuration and how-to documentation for non-admins is difficult. Consistent soft phone and mobile device UI. Difficulties answering calls from soft phone - could cause calls to be missed.,7,4,3,Fuze Voice has been adopted throughout the company however done so as replacement to issuing of hardware.

I personally have not used the video functionality, but I know it exists.,Helps stay connected. Easy to use and manage. Great support.,It lacks compatibility with certain apps.,10,10,5,This is handled by our infrastructure team. I have not personally used this feature.,,Zoom, Jira Service Desk, Axiom Sales Force DevelopmentFuze Best audio/video conferencing tool on the market!Fuze is used across our entire enterprise including offshore offices. Being used as our primary means to call in and out of our organization. It helps all employees to connect with each other with real ease and convenience. We also use the Fuze app on our phones which is of real help when we are travelling as the only thing you need is an internet connection to make calls through the Fuze app. It solves the business problem of being able to provide 24/7/365 connectivity among employees.,One of the most useful features is the MERGE. It allows you to combine two ongoing calls if they are people from the same company calling you for a similar issue or if you were trying to connect to more than one people at the same time. Crystal clear sound and pitch perfect video. Better than any other tool out there on the market. I have experienced that the video and audio quality is way better than Skype. I can say that because we use both. One of the other useful features is the ADD feature. It allows you to add other attendees to an already ongoing calls. Unlike other tools with Fuze you do not need have a new call initiated to add one extra person or someone who wants to jump in for a call in the middle. You can do it on the go! I love that feature of Fuze.,There is lack of customization. I would love to have access to set up background colors for my Fuze, add wallpapers as a background. Change the font, color of numbers and texts that appear on the screen. I have seen a button saying you have an upgrade on Fuze. And i see it quite a few times. I would want to have like one upgrade that pushes a couple of updates together rather than couple of small upgrades.,9,9,8,It was very well handled. People like the tool very much and use it all the time and is primary means for audio/video communication. Everyone has adopted it pretty fast and are really happy with it. Fuze got rid of our old hardware phones which were a hassle to use and set up. Also with the implementation of Fuze we have one less piece of hardware on our desk to manage. As Fuze integrates with your work machine directly it wasn't really a challenge to adopt it.,Skype for Business,Skype for Business (formerly Lync), Cisco WebEx Room Series (formerly Cisco Spark Room Series), Zoom, BlueJeans,Not SureGood product, but not good service.Currently, it is being used by the whole organization. It was brought in to replace our traditional Mitel phone system. Our employees have it installed on their laptops as a softphone option and they also have the Fuze mobile app, so they can use Fuze on the go. It allows us to communicate with each other effectively, as well as being the main contacting tool used by our Sales to contact their clients. Generally, we just use it to call each other and people outside the organization.,The interface is very intuitive and I'm able to setup a call quickly with the people I need to contact. Call quality has been especially good for me as long I have a stable internet connection. It honestly feels like a real traditional phone, but the difference here is that it's in my laptop. I'm able to do everything that I need on the go when needed.,Their client software can face a few bugs here and then and it may take awhile for them to be fixed. One such example is the audio settings, it does not save the proper audio setup all the time when I'm docking and undocking my laptop. Fuze technical support is not very good. They take a very long time to get back to you. When filing an urgent case that needs to be resolved quickly, I am not able to rely on them to give me the punctual and effective support that I need. Registering conference phones can be a pain, as I have to follow a fairly long set of instructions to register them to Fuze.,7,2,8,Adopting Fuze voice has been fairly positive for our organization. It has been providing fairly consistent call quality to our employees and moreso, for our Sales Representatives/Account Managers. We haven't heard too much hiccups from the call quality, which we are relieved to hear. Although, when an issue does come up that does affect call quality, it may take us awhile to resolve it due to the constant back-and-forth between Fuze and our team. The solution is usually not given quickly and might not always be effective for the problems we're experiencing.,Skype for Business and Cisco WebEx Teams (formerly Cisco Spark),Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Exchange, ServiceNowLook no further, Fuze has the features and the price you are looking for!We were tasked with creating a UC infrastructure that would scale with our company's acquisitions. We had very old hardware (Avaya and Shoretel, Cisco, Nortel, and a few other small PBX devices), we needed something that would deploy fast and unite all our users on a common platform. After evaluating a number of vendors we chose Fuze for it's scalability, price, and common UC Features that we needed across our growing enterprise (we started with 5,000 licenses and are scaling up to 15,000). Fuze is our single point Unified Communications platform.,Handing off a call from wifi to the cellular voice/data seamlessly Persistent chat across all your devices Calling features across multiple desktops and mobile devices Desktop Sharing and collaboration,Web UI needs to have the ability to make phone calls We did a lot of number forwarding in our old platform, with Fuze sometimes this is cumbersome Better support of SIP/ATA endpoints,10,10,10,We've had mixed adoption because we have been rolling out Fuze in some locations as a site, and in others as a department (and most of our departments span multiple sites). So we haven't been able to cut-over our entire enterprise yet because we have to approach it systematically depending on who are customers are and how they reach us.,Avaya, ShoreTel and Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Call Manager),Microsoft Exchange,15000,10,Can support calls be routed Can sales calls be received and made and routed properly Can our receptionists perform their job duties with little/no downtime,We've been able to stop using other web-collab tools, such as Web-ex, Go To Meeting We've been able to get rid of most the telephony hardware on end-users' desks Users can control where calls go: their desktop, mobile phone, another phone, voicemail, etc, without having to engage IT.,When the Web client has calling, our Linux users will have "native" access to Fuze Our company may even be able to run more internal meetings using Fuze We won't be affected by outages caused by hurricanes and natural disasters because the number will route in the cloud rather than be tied to a piece of equipment (which may be underwater) at our various locations.,10,Yes,Price Product Features Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor,Well, there's really not much that could be changed, we evaluated many vendors, we chose the one that had the most to offer for the price. Fuze certainly is feature rich: a ubiquitous experience across multiple devices and platforms; Desktop Collab; Persistent chat across all devices; End-user control of their OWN call routing, the list goes on, it's endless, Fuze has the features at the price that makes it highly sought-after.,Unlimited Global Long-distance included (in certain licenses) No phone hardware (in some cases users just use their mobile phone using wifi or cell-data) No more need to separately license desktop sharing software or telephone conferencing plans,Implemented in-house Third-party professional services TIBCO professional services,Yes,Change management was a small part of the implementation and was well-handled,End-user adoption Going from a desktop phone to a "soft phone" (via a USB headset) Call routing changes because of the features of Fuze (some better, some worse, but just the "different" bits),Online training In-person training Self-taught,10,10,Out-of the box, Fuze is 100% usable, the interface is intuitive, you know what to click on to make a call, you know where to search for others and how to start a chat, or a meeting, or collaboration. Fuze keeps the same ease-of-use across the Desktop, Moble, and Web clients.,10,Since Fuze comes pretty much configured "out of the box" there really isn't much to do, for end users setting up and avatar, setting up their audio options, setting up a voicemail, and the one that often gets overlooked, setting Fuze to launch at the start of Windows. Other than that you can configure away til your heart's content.,No - there is no facility to customize the interface,No - we have not done any custom code,We haven't really needed to do anything outside of what the Fuze product already does, so we haven't had to customize any configurations for any of the products, features, or options, in Fuze. Users have requested additional customization features: like having the app startup silently, or changing incoming ringtones or chat tones, etc. They can be changed, but it is a little more advanced.,Yes,They are doing that right now! We use a certain Active directory token to login to Fuze, and a number of users had that token changed last week, Fuze received a list of about 400 users where Fuze is going through and updating the user IDs to match the changed AD token. They are super for doing this it is such laborious work, and something they do with a smile, Fuze Support is the BEST!!,Chat Phone calling Desktop Sharing,Getting incoming voicemail (since it can be done multiple places, and even emailed and then deleted) some users do it different, so it can be hard to support unless they know what option they picked Desktop Sharing (sometimes a user doesn't understand how simple it is to share the desktop, or that they have to start a meeting first--Hopefully Fuze will come out with the feature that you can go from a phone call to desktop sharing in one click) Fuze across multiple devices: Sometimes one device will ring and another won't, this is difficult to track down.,Yes,10,10,10,10,Exchange 365 (Outlook 365) Google Contacts Salesforce contacts,Microsoft AD (Micro Focus Access manager emulating MFAD),File import/export Single Signon API (e.g. SOAP or REST),10,Probably the best advice with integrations is to consider that "nothing is impossible", that's really quite simple, if you can dream it and program it to access their APIs then you can build it, and your users will be happy. And if you can't build it, there are plenty of people at Fuze that can assist.,10,10,Although I don't believe that I can discuss particulars in the contract, we were able to get pricing for our user base starting at 5,000 users with a sliding scale to 10,000 users, and we knew that we were going to grow beyond that so we had pricing up to 20,000 users. We wanted all our voice services to include unlimited Global Long-Distance, which Fuze has a tier for (although there are a handful of countries where they charge a per-minute-unit, each user gets 500 units a month that we had collectively pooled so we will never be charged extra for long-distance, it's all-inclusive). This is a huge selling point for a multi-national company that used to have very expensive long-distance phone bills.,Fuze is incredibly easy to work with, so the best advice is either know what you want, or what you need, bring it to the table, let Fuze work out the details and let them tell you how to best implement their service, they have been doing this long enough now that they have the process down and know how to do it very efficiently.,Yes,More headset support Inviting users outside the organization to collaborate Enhanced GUI,Audio notification customizations End-user call handling changes Web-audio for inbound-outbound calls,No,NoFuzeFuze is deployed as our primary phone system across the entire organization including our call centers.,Voice quality is very good and we do not have to manage the servers and carriers like we did with our in-house system. The contact center is very easy to manage and change. I can change call routing, add or delete queue members, or change dial plans very easily from the Fuze Portal. The mobile app is really good.,We tried to implement the Fuze Meeting portion of the service in 2017, at that time the service was not easy to use. It was difficult to train my meeting hosts and we had screen sharing reliability issues. We would like to have the option to clear missed calls on the desktop app. We would like to have the option to clear missed calls on the mobile app.,9,8,9,Fuze has been very widely adopted in our organization. We have a large number of users that have transitioned from a physical phone to a softphone and several using the mobile app. Our Service Center and Support Desk transitioned to the new Fuze ACD immediately at go live.,RingCentral,Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Dynamics 365 (formerly Microsoft Dynamics CRM), MS SharePointFuze: a fantastic collaboration software that needs to be an even bigger nameWe are a remote company and use Fuze mainly as our PBX but operations utilizes Fuze meetings to collaborate.,Softphone design and mobile app design is perfect. Meeting software is quite powerful Integrations are very useful,What is the point of an RCF number? Consolidate the hub and admin portal very confusing where to go sometimes Support could be faster,9,5,10,It has been challenging with people who don't like change but we are getting through it.,ShoreTel,GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar
