Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Unified Contact Center

We have been partners with Cisco for more than 15 years. It's used in most of our customer deployments as a contact center solution to provide and fulfill the extreme level of complex call flow design requirements. It addresses an extreme level of personalization from a call flow, IVR, routing, and reporting perspective. It has a very simple user-friendly UI. Also, it can be integrated with multiple third-party solutions for recording, like Verint. The agents can log in to their PC using Finesse over an internet browser, so no extra software is needed for agent login.
  • Advanced features for call routing development.
  • Omnichannel.
  • Contact center monitoring dashboards.
  • Customization capabilities.
  • Hard times with implementation, due to some complexities in the solution suite.
  • Simplifications in the suite are needed because we faced hard times with its implementation.
  • The product is price worthy when comparing it with what it really provides and offers.
  • Helps large-size organizations/businesses provide a good customer experience that complies with their complex business requirements.
For customers that don't prefer the cloud solutions because they're afraid of data leak and instead prefer the on-premise solution to maintain their customers' sensitive data on their contact centers, i.e. banking sector, UCCE would win. This doesn't mean the cloud CCaaS won't maintain or secure the data, sometimes it's just a matter of governmental regulations that the organization should follow/comply with. From the business requirements complexity perspective, UCCE would also win because the ecosystem, features, and capabilities within it give you the freedom to build up the contact center within that. However, you will exert extra effort in the implementation phase to fulfill that. Otherwise, you might go for CCaaS if your requirements aren't complex with fewer third-party integrations and if you need to come up with your contact center in a short implementation time.

Cisco UCCE is a good choice for large and complex contact center environments, where the call flows should be integrated with multiple backend systems, making them a good fit for UCCE as a use case to deploy. It also fits well with the customers that have widely distributed agent offices that are connected through capable networking bandwidth. It fits also in all the business types, especially in the banking sector, because most of our deployments were in that type of business.
