What do you like best?
Excellent support and communication from start to finish, all the various abilities to integrate with different technologies and also the ease of using the system from both a back office and user point of view.
From an admin P.O.V the whole system is a piece of cake compared to say your traditional SIP trunk or PBX system which if you have ever used are a complete nightmare and generally the opposite of useful (looking at you Mitel & Panasonic in particular!). There are other systems a bit like Talkdesk in the emerging SaaS phone based market but very few have such an array of integration possibilities and with the imminent release of an API I believe things can only get better in this arena.
What do you dislike?
The system is not fully developed to its full potential, yet, and the future development road map could be better highlighted and organised for clients such as us who have a hectic development schedule to be better prepared.
Callbar which is their Chrome widget that sits aside the browser still needs a lot of work, you can't for instance search for a contact yet and you basically have to copy and paste from the browser rendering Callbar fairly pointless at this point in time.
All in these are really minor criticisms to a system that at its core works as it should.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
With our previous system things were dated and allowed for little improvement in integration with other technologies. Talkdesk is always evolving and will eventually be our main conduit for all customer communication be it via our website or mainline.
Talkdesk is a leap forward in terms of managing account managers and looking at day, weekly & monthly statistics to help the company accomplish its goals more efficiently.
