"Genesys PureConnect - Flexibility, Complexity, and Technology Advances"

What do you like best?

The Genesys PureConnect solution provides unparalleled contact center features and flexibility in the customization and integrations it enables that can dramatically increase both customer satisfaction and agent ease-of-use. It's all-in-one focus means that an impressive array of features from real-time speech analytics and call recording to complex voice-enabled IVRs can be deployed without the need to "bolt on" multiple 3rd-party systems. And it's standards-based architecture means that it can seamlessly integrate with a multitude of other business systems from CRM to order management and much more.

What do you dislike?

With industry focus on cloud-based systems, PureConnect has lagged behind a bit in its ability to use the latest technologies - most specifically WebRTC. This needs to be fully integrated into Interaction Connect... and quickly. There has also been talk of migrating all of the other administrative and supervisory applications to a web-based model, but this has also been slow in coming. Once these transitions are complete, PureConnect (like PureCloud, but with a different focus and feature set) will be much more flexible in how it can be hosted and deployed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider whether your organization is a good fit for this product. It does have many powerful business user features but is definitely contact center focused. It also is overkill for really small organizations (maybe < 100 users). But regardless of size, it can do almost anything. The phrase "just add money and stir" applies here. If you can dream it up, PureConnect can probably be configured or customized to do it. This means that it can be a good fit for a specialized use case where it otherwise might be a bit much.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have worked with many organizations to reduce inefficiencies and provide a higher level of customer satisfaction by building self-service options and giving agents the tools they need to better serve those that speak with. Integrations with other business systems and automated bulls-eye routing scenarios have been some of the most compelling.

"Full Control For Your Contact Center"

What do you like best?

The Genesys sales and support engineers are the best in the business. Any ideas or questions that need addressed are quickly and accurately addressed with a phone call or email to our Customer Success Manager, Service Delivery Manager or Support Team.

The support we receive feels genuine and the demonstrated sense of urgency is not based upon the number of seats we occupy.

What do you dislike?

The reporting is good, but could be better. We get by with the offered reports, but the biggest challenge is the ability to find call detail on an abandoned interaction. We look forward to a solution on this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

From a technical perspective the biggest benefits for myself, EMS and our partners is:

• Ease of use of the PureConnect systems, from an Administrator experience to our Supervisor tools and end-user Desktop platform

o All of these offerings are extremely “feature rich” which provides high customization, real-time awareness and enables us to deliver a silky interface to our end-users.

• As an outsourcer of contact centers, our environment doesn’t operate as a single company with multiple departments; but rather, as numerous companies with multiple departments under one roof, each with their own unique contact center preferences delivered with precision through EMS and Genesys.

o At present we are managing roughly 500 phone numbers, 400 workgroups, 200 Inbound Call Profiles, 200 users and 50 roles with PureConnect

o We are a CaaS Local Control customer; meaning that, our voice traffic stays onsite at EMS, but we leverage PureConnect cloud servers in a geo-redundant environment to route our interactions.

o EMS Provides support and services via Voice, Email and Chat with the ability to also turn-up SMS.

o With the Genesys system we are confidently able to achieve all of this with a single FT dedicated EMS Genesys Administrator.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Enhancing the overall Customer Experience and agent ease of use for complex processes through the use of Interaction Process Automation. The ability to automate background processes has dramatically improved training and interaction handle time.

What Auto Dialer solution do you use?

"A Truly Customisable & Scaleable Product"

What do you like best?

PureConnect is a UC and Telephony platform that allows for, and certainly benefits from, a complete bundling of all aspects, both analogue and digital, of a business' communications. PureConnect allows for seamless integration of varying telephony modes (PSTN, ISDN, SIP & VOIP) that may be utilised across multiple sites, Security policies, phone and video recording of interactions, skills-based routing (SBR) for both IB and OB, OB dialling campaigns utilising SBR & unique dialling rules all make for a solid, customisable, and durable system.

What do you dislike?

The only dislikes experienced are minor issues specific to how I would like to use the system. Some areas of IA can't be CTRL-left mouse clicked to select and add/remove multiple entries at once. This proves a little cumbersome when managing organisations of 1000+ staff across multiple businesses/entities. The ability to glean information from Interaction Attendant, through an Excel export or SQL DB table for example, would be invaluable on such a large scale as, currently, it needs to be done manually.

Recommendations to others considering the product

An all-in-one solution is the best for the PureConnect system. Having Live Chat, Inbound Calls, Outbound Dialling and everything in-between in one place makes for seamless integration when utilising other platforms such as BI tools or CRMs

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Fluid OB lead dialling based on custom SQL filters (campaigns, attempt timings, etc)

- Constantly updating SBR using real-time agent performance data to impact conversion rates for sales (both Inbound & Outbound),

"PureConnect = Good Stuff"

What do you like best?

The ability to do so many things. All the options in Attendant and IC Admin allow you to do almost anything you want to do. Skill based routing is a fantastic concept and executed well in designed correctly. Initiation, retention, and Security settings for recordings.

What do you dislike?

There are some things that I would expect to be basic functionality in any call center software that aren't there in regards to reports and schedules. I also don't like having to go through a vendor for support. The reporting comes with a built in report builder but it doesn't let you add the pieces you want unless they are within a certain grouping. There are a number of very weird one off issues as well, like while writing this review I received a call from a Team Leader that they just had 2 agents phone calls with 2 different members, merge without any sort of transferring. I am sure not all companies have the issues we do, my predecessor was the one who did our part of the implementation and he caused a number of issues in other places with the way he had set things up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have been growing at a steady rate as a company, build everything out as if you are 3 times the size. Also, get policies and procedures in place ahead of time for recording retention.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PureConnect allows us to route all incoming calls however we want as well as record them.

"PureConnect is Great"

What do you like best?

PureConnect provides companies with the tools needed to run their Contact Center effortlessly. The customization capabilities, redundancy and dedicated development team at Genesys really come together to deliver a robust platform capable of scaling with your business from whether your going from small to mid-grade or even into enterprise.

What do you dislike?

As PureConnect continues to age and it's code base grows, Bug Fixes and Enhancements in future versions can introduce business impacting issues and other bugs. This seems to happen frequently from release to release. Recently, the release schedule changed for PureConnect which seems to have helped with this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Invest in Handler training. The customization options it opens up will greatly expand your ability to deliver business solutions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The nature of our business requires we send billing notifications to our customers members. To accomplish this we utilize the PureConnect Dialer platform to run Agentless, Preview/Predicitve, and even SMS enabled campaigns to reach our member base. Not having to outsource this work allows us to greatly monitor and modify our outbound strategy as needed. We were able to quickly develop and release SMS enabled billing notifications thanks to Dialers integration with the built in development solution.

"PureConnect The PBX agnostic contact centre solution. "

What do you like best?

We were able to upgrade our contact centre (which is within my scope) without having to upgrade our organizations PBX infrastructure (which is outside my scope). The directories we created can be updated in real time so they are now an authoritative source of the truth for my agents.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to listen to live calls in the ICBM application without having to also log into the agent application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

More tightly integrated than most other solutions I've worked with. You can tell that it's all built on the same code base.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A PBX agnostic application that can be customized to have better than front-of the line priority for emergency calls. With group station ring, a code blue will always be answered in a few seconds.

"How PureConnect has help our Organization"

What do you like best?

We love using PureConnect. It has made our call flows and email routing easier to handle. We now have a chat feature that we offer to our outside agents and hope to open this up ton our members in the future. PureConnect has help us to better service our members' and our Field Reps.

What do you dislike?

The only thing holding us back from doing out final upgrade to the PureConnect Web version, is the only feature for printing emails, does not work on the web version.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Better call flows and a better picture into who is calling and what our agents are doing. The out of the box reporting is even great.

"Works as expected!"

What do you like best?

Pureconnect works as expected every day. If by some chance there is an issue Genesys provides top notch support that address the issue with urgency and knowledge

What do you dislike?

There is not much I dislike first of all. I wish we could resize some search windows inside Interaction Administrator. I also wish there were ways to export information from Interaction Administrator like users, managed stations, etc...

Recommendations to others considering the product

The applications work as intended with almost zero issues. If there are issues Genesys support is amazing and will work with you until the issue is resolved.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can manage our call centers (calls, chats, and emails) using PureConnect. In addition, the product is onsite so we can address hardware issues quickly if needed

"Easy to maintain call centre software"

What do you like best?

This software has the ability to do it all. Whether you are running a full-scale call centre or just for your inter-office calling, PureConnect is for you. The suite is broken down into bite-sized licensing and access so you can give as much or as little access to staff, depending on their role in the company.

What do you dislike?

There are so many different parts of the software, depending on what you want to do. Some days I had to log into 6 things at once to do everything I needed (Desktop, Business Manager, Supervisor, Administrator, Scripter, Attendant)

Recommendations to others considering the product

PureConnect is very indepth and there are a lot of features. Don't be put off at first with the complexity of it, try to stick it out and learn it. Once I had my head around it I really liked it but I must admit I was very overwhelmed at the beginning as I didn't have anyone to teach me, I just had to figure it out. Negotiate a good support agreement within your contract so that you can rely on them to assist you where possible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are predominantly a call centre, that portion of our business makes up around 70% of our total business. We needed a solution that could help keep us all on track, report and measure trends, easily automate our customer's IVR journey and give them the best experience possible to ensure they are returning to us for repeat business.

"Very comprehensive call centre phone suite"

What do you like best?

This suite has pretty much every feature you could ever want or need. It has been around for so many years and it receives so many updates, whether they are just patches or full releases that it is forever improving. We had a very good service coordinator who helped when we needed to escalate quickly.

What do you dislike?

We were running on 2015 R3 using SIP100/SIP200 hardware. We had a hard time being scheduled in for an update with a wait time of approximately 1 year. The SIP boxes often would deregister, forcing our whole call centre to go down and having to re-register them again in order to get back up and running. The support were never able to find a solution to this problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You need to decide if you want a full suite onsite that is very mature and feature rich or if you would prefer to use their cloud based solution which takes far less management but is also lacking a lot of features and functionality. It depends on how big your centre is and which features are most important to you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For the most part this suite met all our needs - inbound, outbound, dialer ,call recordings, administration, stats, reports etc. We have since changed over to another Genesys product in PureCloud which is their cloud based phone solution. It is very young and lacking some of the features of PureConnect but it has removed the need for manual upgrades and having so much hardware.

"Genesys Pure Connect"

What do you like best?

Multi client, Multi channel technology for customer care centres. easy to implement; easy to use, stable and enabler for innovatons.

What do you dislike?

for the majority of functionalities; it covers our needs for Multi country implementations in Europe. WFM- and speech analytics is partly matching our requirements. Mainly Czech, Poland, Turkey and Romania support of local language should be nice to have

Recommendations to others considering the product

look at your strategy to create Customer Experiances. Map your client- and marketing vision into the way how you service your clients. implement Genesys out of the gloud, As a Services or OnPrem dependingon your size and level of security/IT policy. and finally; you can make customer experience happen right away

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For us as Global Customer Care BPO provider it is our main all-in-one platform for many clients. we use the platforms within the Telco, TRavel, Utilities, Automobile pilars all-over

"The Best All-in-one Solution for the Modern Call Center"

What do you like best?

It consolidates multiple views and functionality into one streamlined Desktop interface.

What do you dislike?

Better Canned reports out of the box, provide ease of use to customize the reports.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Genesys Pureconnect is the primary call center system that our healthcare authority uses for any telephony based requirements. Our team is making the standard and approved platform for any new call center departments that needs this service. we are onboarding departments yearly to leverage and take advantage of the rich application suite being CIC. We have many departments that currently use it. this addresses many business and technical problems these department have had in the past, prior to using CIC. We had to use many and multiple vendor products and try to integrate them together, which was very challenging from compatibility and support. We eliminated all that using on-premise CIC.

"Super Power Routing"

What do you like best?

It provides a very powerful routing and skill engine, allowing us, to get customers to the right place the first time. We have been able to be very creative in our solutions, because of the flexibility that Pure connect provides in its routing capabilities.

What do you dislike?

The supervising tools are lacking, so we had do design some in house solutions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Because we provide specialists on products, we needed to be able to guide customers to those individuals, with the least amount of effort. We have recently introduced Web call back on our website, and are using the skill routing to get the customer to the right agent, based on the product selected. We have also benefited from 2 tier routing, where we would activate agents additional agents in a queue, only after a customer has been waiting a specific amount of time.

"All in one contact center solution"

What do you like best?

Having used Cisco Call Manager - I can tell you PureConnect is so much easier to administer and I can sleep better at night knowing it is managed by Genesys.

What do you dislike?

The challenge is always trying to keep up and learn new things about the platform. It's not a dislike really, just there is so much to learn about this powerful system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allows organizational responsiveness & agility (responsive to needs of customer, stay ahead of competition, try before you buy, add applications).

We have ability to rapidly increase/decrease agent counts (Seasonality, High Growth Rate, Open Enrollment, Tax season, Holidays, etc)

We own and focus on the customer experience. The team is not focused on the stuff (server, OS, patches, upgrades)

"Ease of use wrapped into a single platform = PureConnect!"

What do you like best?

The ability to have all of the contact center solutions wrapped into a single system to manage. The system is feature rich and easy to use. I like to be able to provide solutions to my internal customers and this system allows me to do that with ease.

What do you dislike?

The Optimizer and Quality manager modules could be a little less rigid. Optimizer needs to handle constraints with a little more flexibility. Quality manager needs to allow for a little more customization and moving of questionaires.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a feature rich system that is easy to use under a single platform, the PureConnect system is for you. It's ability to be customized offers endless ideas for solutions!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have integrated with most of our customer information systems allowing us to offer more self service options in real time. This raised our customer experience and raised our customer satisfaction. By converting to the PureConnect system, we have combined 7 or 8 systems into 1. This saved our company money and resources as the upkeep of a single system is much more efficient than 7 or 8.

"Very performant and stable. But the most important is the flexibility and the possibilities"

What do you like best?

It is an all in one tool that allows to manage the distribution of all interaction channels in the same agent application

In the business manager the real time statistics are very easy to use and efficient, and with his notification and alerting functionalities it is a very good tool for the supervisors.

What do you dislike?

the outbound Scripting tool miss a lot of possibilities and the blending inbound/oubound of one campaign could be improved. to realise that it is complex to implement.

The marquee server is not stable and has to be restarted often and does not offer nice display features.

And the web admin tool is not user friendly at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very good call center Platform but the most important is to think in advance how you wan to organise your team to have the best operational efficiency. Then the structure of your workgroup and skills according to your organisation is going to help in a better follow up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In our call center it is mostly inbound phone interactions distribution followed by chat interactions and outbound campaign as well.

The main gain is of course the accuracy of the distribution, but the also the productivity of the agents with the easyness of workgroup attributions.

"On the road with and towards smart and innovative solutions"

What do you like best?

We chose this solution for our telephone platform because it offers various advanced solutions. In particular, the multichannel, the distribution of intercations by skills, intelligent call routing and it is an all-in-one solution.

What do you dislike?

WFM solution, ICBM Application and Intercation Attendant

the solution is appreciated by our customers and has reduced the waiting time of our customers but also optimize the productivity of our employees.

Aini, we have seen an increase in the satisfaction of our customers and our employees.

"Review"

What do you like best?

I like that Genesys is global and has customer care available 24/7.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the lack of communication from Genesys regarding issues,. updates, road maps and fixes to their bugs.

My biggest concern is their customer care and the lack of following a BEC agreement regarding time frames.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend adding SLA into the contract for care.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to update our IVR to have better reporting- a benefit is to be able to use one application to run reports for different channels such as voice, chat, QCB etc.

"PureConnect"

What do you like best?

I most like the ease of administration and thorough documentation of the platform. We can easily do our own maintenance/upgrades in house with little worry

What do you dislike?

Development on enriching current features seems stagnant as opposed to creating new features (PureCloud, ICWS)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fully vet the licensing + maintenance costs. Maintenance costs keep increasing after the acquisition... Understand that if you are unhappy with the web client (Connect) that no future development is being devoted to the installed client (Interaction Desktop).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to go beyond calls for customer interaction has done wonders for allowing us to further leverage agents and meet customers on the terms they want to be met.

"Top of the Line Platform!"

What do you like best?

Being a PureConnect customer for 2.5 years now, I love the flexibility and Omni-channel offering integration Genesys offers.

What do you dislike?

Currently, not much. Their Supervisor/Manager access is a bit cumbersome and their canned reporting isn't all we need, but they integrate well to other slick reporting tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Invest in WFM solutions.

What do you like best?

PureConnect is an all-in-one platform, which offers best in breed capabilities, with a simple architecture. You won't need expensive integrations, neither a large harware footprint, nor complex systems. Is the best solution for Contact Centers of all sizes.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the way Genesys target this platform, as for medium and small Contact Centers. It's very powerfull and it could also work as good as PureEngage for large Contact Centers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to use all the native features of the solution. You won't be dissapointed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I see this is a good system to work on to administer and add scripting. I feel the attendant scripting solution a little off-putting. Would recommend their solution be gui/scripting based (IE Designer) to more advertise the functionality.

"Versatile, all-in-one, communication suite with renewed vendor support"

What do you like best?

All-in-One solution - I deal with one vendor now for our communication/contact centre needs, and my technical team can hone their knowledge/skills on a single solution.

I can offer a 'menu' for my business clients and turn up/down features for them as their business grows/pivots

What do you dislike?

Post merger, support costs appear to be considerably higher. Our next renewal will require considerably thought to determine our go forward strategy with PureConnect.

Reporting and analytics is sub-par resulting in my team spending extra time/effort in this area

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Enhanced our QA process leveraging voice/screen recording, easily to configure/maintain integrations, ability to quickly and easily enable post call survey, putting the power of some day to day administration in the hands of my business clients

What do you like best?

I love how robust this system is. You can make it literally do anything!

What do you dislike?

You have to pay for the great add-on's. This can get pricey depending on company needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to explore all the add-on before going into the design/build stage. You don't want to miss out on some needed features or have to wait to get them put in place once you realize you need it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Best office phone system I've used"

What do you like best?

So many phone providers focus on the hardware and spend very little time ensuring the software is usable and intuitive. Interactive Intelligence has an incredibly easy to use web interface that let's me manage my phone calls, forward calls and create conference lines. Call quality is superb

What do you dislike?

I've yet to find something that doesn't meet or exceed my expectations for a modern phone system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We make a lot of phone calls with our inside sales team and support center. It's important that our phones are easy to use and work well with the software we use to run our business. With so much time dialing, we needed a system that helped us work efficiently.

"Best Phone system Period"

What do you like best?

"Excellent Product, Great Support, Always Innovative"

What do you like best?

I like all components of the Genesys Connect platform. Some of which we don't currently use at my employer, but have used in the past. Recorder, Optimizer, IVR Attendant to name a few. Keep up the good work.

What do you dislike?

Being more hands on with the software would be great. The PureConnect Cloud environment is managed more by Genesys staff.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1st Time resolutions. Routing calls through rules engine has made it easier to get our customers to the right agent the first time.

"Meets our needs very well"

What do you like best?

The support of the product is always on hand, thorough and professional.

What do you dislike?

recently we have struggled with communication between ourselves and Genesys due to changeover of the Account Manager role with no communication provided by Genesys in this change. I thought this was very poor from them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a call centre based business across Asia Pacific, we are constantly trying to meet the demands of customers reaching out to us within specified SLAs. This can be challenging across different skillsets and languages but the Genesys platform helps us greatly in this regard. It gives us great flexibility moving different staff around to different groups to answer calls when required.

"Great Open Platform"

What do you like best?

The ability to customize the system to do pretty much anything we need it to do. We route several different types of interactions and feel like we are just scratching the surface.

What do you dislike?

They need to continue to develop the WFM offering, Interaction Optimizer, to be best of breed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We route many different types of interactions and have been able to change many manual processes to automated ones that allow us to spread the work over the entire call center instead of a smaller team.

"great product"

What do you like best?

. Any ideas or questions that need addressed are quickly and accurately addressed with a phone call or email to our Customer Success Manager, Service Delivery Manager or Support Team.

The support we receive feels genuine and the demonstrated sense of urgency is not based upon the number of seats we occupy.

What do you dislike?

looking forward to the new reporting- real time reporting is not as good as it should be

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

managing multichannel environment

What do you like best?

New features, easy and quickly to implemant the system

What do you dislike?

More dahsboards for the supervisor, workforce management tools

With PureCloud we can make system changes ourselves and no longer rely on IT or external providers. We can measure so much more and our managers have real-time data at their fingertips.

Our customers enjoy a friendlier and more convenient experience on their own terms. And our teams can do what they do best—provide great service and build relationships.

"Feature-rich and easy to administer"

What do you like best?

Wealth of features, use of subsystems instead of many appliances (like Avaya), ease of administration, great support network and documentation library.

What do you dislike?

"QOL" features lagging behind such as built-in testing tools, GUI enhancements and inconsistency in layout.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do a clean implementation and try to avoid hybrid environments.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We leverage PureConnect in our call centers, with Avaya as our primary PBX. The reliability and modern feature set of PureConnect has made it an easy choice to migrate everyone over.

"CIC "

What do you like best?

I've used CIC for the past 6 years and have found it is the easiest UC system to administer

What do you dislike?

We don't always get the best support because we are a smaller company. When I have worked for larger organizations the support we received was more readily available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try the others first if you don't believe CIC is the best solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Expedited call routing, ease of use for end users and our customers

"PureConnect Review"

What do you like best?

I like that the system allows us to connect 8 large contact centers over different business units seamlessly.

What do you dislike?

I wish the reporting element of the system was a little more user friendly and more customization options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allowing us to seamlessly move calls to other contact centers when one is offline, and allowing us to see call characteristics from a high level to better service our customers.

"Easy All in one system"

What do you like best?

Having come from a pure telcom background working with systems that are pieced together, it is nice to have a system where all systems are unified under one umbrella

What do you dislike?

The reduction of the inside sales support has made getting information such as licensing and pricing more difficult

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Call routing based on skills and IVR options that are friendly to use have increased our customer satisfaction

"Good product, poor support and nickle & dime features"

What do you like best?

I like the accountability and visibility the product creates for our agents. The UI is cumbersome and not intuitive but relatively easy to learn how to work interaction in a short period of time.

What do you dislike?

The fact that every change costs money, Genesys charges an incredible amount for different features that many other products include. It is obvious this platform was built for phone first and email second

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get PureCloud instead, unless you are a government entity or commercial with government security requirements

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows for more even distribution of workload among agents, ownership of interactions and accountability for resolutions

"It has been a challenge to get the project delivered but we are happy with the result."

What do you like best?

Feature richness. Technical Support is available.

What do you dislike?

Slow and difficult to connect as an administrator! ex DZCA

It took about a year to be able to deploy inbound email. This delayed the decommissioning of our former Nortel Solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check the competition other options. Then you will know that you have chosen the right product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have upgraded from an old Nortel solution. The GPC solution allowed us to easily implement chat and OB calling campaigns.

Our relationship with the 3rd party partner i3vision has been very good in getting new services to production at reasonable cost.

"Easy to configure and easy to use."

Callback out of the box functionality from the agent side. The need to have two clients for Inbound and outbound calls.

"PureConnect"

What do you like best?

Uptime, reliability, Quality. PureConnect is a stable, reliable solution.

What do you dislike?

Support is just OK. I wish that resolution of bugs and larger issues was more effective.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No answering service, very small Tier 1 team. This allows us to run many call centers with no live people on staff to just answer phones and transfer calls all day.

"Great Multi Media Contact Center solution"

What do you like best?

PureConnect is a stable, professional Multi Media contact Center solution that integrates well with existing Voice and Network architecture

What do you dislike?

Although the High Availability solution is very stable routine switchovers cause email interactions to be re-queued and given a new timestamp and interaction ID. This affect users with large email queues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reliable, professional customer contact
