Talkdesk has a lot to offer, and we continue to learn about its offerings and how to leverage them to benefit our business. Some aspects of the current workforce management piece are challenging, such as adherence. Some of the reporting available is missing key filtering capabilities.

It's great for what we need. It provides the correct report, lets us choose the different reports, and is very accurate. I would recommend adding more statues. Automatic saving of the last days on a report last used for monthly/weekly reports. On a daily basis, we use the report and live to monitor.

Despite the cost, the ease with which you are able to navigate the system is actually tedious. We have to have specialists in the business to aid in getting some of the reports and making changes to the system. Calls are delayed between us and customers as there is no tower on our continent for the system.

Talkdesk is definitely geared towards large call centers with high call volume and many reps stationed on phones. We have a comparatively smaller Sales team, but still find value out of the ability to route calls to different reps using their personal extensions (rather than each rep needing their own separate phone number). It's also nice that you have a few options for how to make and take calls. You can use the Callbar app, the mobile app, or forward numbers to an external number (forward to your cell). I'm confident that Talkdesk will continue to grow with us and we won't have to worry about switching phone systems again as we grow our team.

I think it is good suited in all specs of voice calls, however for chats and emails management it could be improve much more. Using the mail app it is not so practical when you are used to work with microsoft outlook, so making it similar would be great! c

Talkdesk is very user friendly. There is a lot of support documentation available making it easy for a smaller team to implement it. No need for highly skilled consultants or specific competencies. Perfect for a smaller team. It also has the capacity to support call centers with hundreds of agents making it very versatile.

We use it to integrate with Service Cloud. Our Customer Care team agents use it. It automates many processes but it lacks good customer service. I recommend the company completely redo its customer care as it is absolutely terrible. We also hope they enable the AI features by default rather than make us upgrade and pay extraordinary costs.

Organizations that need to provide support across multiple channels (phone, email, chat) can benefit from Talkdesk's multichannel capabilities. It allows for a seamless integration of different communication channels.
Organizations with highly specialized or unique requirements that fall outside the typical use cases of a contact center might find Talkdesk less appropriate. In such cases, a more customizable solution might be needed.

Whenever we have a problem with our Talkdesk, our Account Manager is impressive in trying to find a solution. Always being transparent and trying to provide a tailored solution to strengthen our partnership. On the other hand, when we want to get customised dashboards it is always a challenge to find a proper solution, hassle-free.

Talkdesk does a reasonable job managing the basic voice channel. The IVR is nice, though complicated. It works fairly well for our distributed workforce. I would recommend the tool for a smaller contact center with no special requirements.

When we were in the initial discussions with the sales team on our requirements, one of the things we really wanted to do was generate 'screen pops' out of ServiceNow, where the caller could enter their ticket number and it would open that incident page within the SNOW tool. We were assured it could be done; however, once we started implementation, the person leading the project for Talkdesk didn't even seem to know what a 'screen pop' was, let alone how to integrate Talkdesk with ServiceNow. Ultimately, we gave up on having that feature.

Talkdesk has an easy-to-use interface, easier and friendlier than most of other dialers and is has a really strong report functionality which allows to easily track and measure the performance of our operations. Also, the predictive dialer capabilities with agents being logged in multiple campaigns at the same time was other winning functionality that led us to choose Talkdesk. There is room for improvement in the outbound process (Talkdesk was historically focused on inbound) with the reduction of time to call and time to pick up. This is something being addressed by Talkdesk.

The basic call and answer functionality works well, though it requires a much faster internet connection than other VOIP solutions. (they list the requirement at 1 mbps, but in practice you need a lot more) If you have a remote team, Talkdesk will work from anywhere and the caller is none the wiser that you aren't all in one space. The contact functionality is helpful, tying in other software packages so you can see orders/tickets for the caller, but in my experience, it is frequently broken if you have more than one contact with the same number. There is a dropdown to show the multiple contacts, but you can't open it, and can only see the caller's phone number, with no name or email. In older versions, you could access the dropdown, but that option was removed and their staff is not interested in any fix here in my opinion. Surprisingly, I've found there is no way to combine duplicate contacts or otherwise manage your contact list in bulk.

Talkdesk has been a great phone platform for our customer support team. The third-party integration has made it easy for agents to launch calls from a customer ticket, log their call notes and have them carry over between ticketing and accounting programs. Good solution for businesses relying on a call queue system.

Talkdesk is well suited to help customer service reach and get reached by customers and partners and also to monitor team performance. It also helps time analysts to track pick times of contact, so that we can forecast and plan headcount for specific times of the day/week/year and to monitor people's statuses, to see what could be improved.

Certainly is well-suited to our applications for effective, reliable customer interaction, i.e. Salesforce integration. Compatibility with sales software tools is essential to meeting sales goals. The easier to use, the more customers you can contact in a given time period. This certainly adds to the group productivity and hence increased revenue stream.

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.

It is a good solution in following scenarios: retaining existing SIP Numbers Integrating with internal AWS Storage Integrating with reporting solution Debugging call and call flows Guardian tool is helpful in identifying user browser, ip address or call quality issue Improvements needed: The network testing tool is not accurate and does not give a true picture. It needs enhancement. The support ticket escalation and handling needs to be responsive across their internal team for faster issue resolution. The AI feature needs work for multiple language support. The IVR flow , Prompts, function scripts needs better way to migrate, manage and deploy in production. The versioning of flow needs more input field length to document on changes. The current limit is only 50 or so characters.
