Our contact center handles multiple brands and services. The NICE inContact CXone platform has allowed us to handle those interactions with the needed individualized branding and service without having to have dedicated agents. We accomplished this through dynamic screen pops and whisper tied to the inbound call DNIS or skill. This informs our multi skilled agents exactly how to handle the call effortlessly before it is delivered to them in real time. In addition to this flexibility on the agent level, our support staff are able to easily see these calls based on brand or service through customized dashboards and reports. These metrics can drill down to a granular agent level or review by campaign.
The NICE inContact CXone platform has a strong omni channel functionality along with a robust offering of features outside basic ACD and outbound dialing including but not limited to, speech analytics, workforce management, quality assurance and gamification. As mentioned previously the platform is very API friendly and has been able to integrate with every databased or application needed with our organization. You can tell that the platform is well developed by its plentiful features and how they seamlessly integrate and communicate with one another.
The NICE inContact CXone platform offers a wide array of reporting capabilities. Their canned reports offer quick insight into reviewing historical calls on the agent, skill, team or campaign level as well as searching for calls based on the DNIS or ANI. The custom reports offer a large offering on data points on both agent and calls. It can be a little overwhelming when first using the platform for custom reporting because there are so many options and possibilities. One very important detail is that reporting can be dictated on how call routing is configured, this means that reporting could vary based on how a script is built and functions which requires a strong understanding of the scripts to master reporting. Some reporting we have to do outside of inContact as the platform does not allowed for joined tables and complex statements. Real-time dashboard are very agile and used heavily by our support staff and leadership.
Yes - We were using Cisco Unified Communication Manager along with a Salesforce CTI call connector from Ingenius. We replaced these systems with NICE inContact CXone because we needed a system that offered more robust outbound dialing capabilities outside a basic click to call. We also wanted a system that was web based and not an on premises system that was sometimes difficult to access depending on what hardware was available in the moment. We have also started offering new features such as call back in queue and agent IVR call handling connected to our CRM Salesforce that we did not do before due to the level of effort needed to execute.
The NICE inContact CXone platform is well suited for a business where they need a contact center solution on the cutting edge that focuses on new features and functionalities. A business where omni channel experiences are needed should look into the this platform as it handles chat, email and voice well. Like any system that has a robust offering there is a lot of configuration and customization available and with that come complexity. For a small contact center that doesn't have a strong technical team or the budget to use professional services regularly may struggle with getting all the benefits the platform has to offer.
