Why We Picked It

Five9 is more expensive than Genesys, however it offers better customer service.

All Five9 customers have access to 24/7 live customer support, while Genesys does not offer 24/7 phone support in any of its plans. Five9 is also known for its user-friendly interface and easy-to-use features, while some Genesys customers have complained that the software is overly complex and difficult to set up. Five9 also offers better reliability than Genesys, with a 99.999% uptime compared to Genesys’ 99.99% uptime.

On the other hand, Genesys offers some advanced features that Five9 does not, such as speech and text analytics and screen recording, all at a lower price point than Five9.

Pricing & Plans

Talkdesk offers three different pricing plans as well as custom packages that are based on industry such as banking, retail, and healthcare. Here is a quick overview of Talkdesk pricing.

  • Multichannel engagement (chat, email and SMS)
  • Automated notifications
  • AI-powered real-time agent assist
  • Customer experience analytics
  • Custom reporting

 

Standout Features

Here are some of the key features of Talkdesk:

  • Agent Assist: Talkdesk’s agent assist feature uses AI and machine learning to provide reps with next best action recommendations, answer agent questions, and automate pre-call, on-call and post-call work. The starter version of agent assist is included in all Talkdesk plans while the full version is only available for CX Cloud Elite users. The starter version allows agents to conduct a multilingual search of the company database while on calls with customers.
  • Conversations mobile app: The mobile app enables agents to connect to the contact center and handle both inbound and outbound calls from anywhere in the world. The app is for iOS and Android and is included in the CX Cloud Elevate plan and above.
  • Screen recording: Talkdesk’s screen recording feature enables supervisors to capture agent desktop activity during calls. The screen recording is synchronized with the voice recording to give a full picture of the call.
  • Automated Notifications: This Talkdesk feature allows users to send automatic, event-triggered SMS notifications to customers. Users have control over the configuration of rules and the associated content, resulting in the ability to create highly personalized messages.

 

Support Options

Talkdesk offers 24/7 self-service options including a knowledge base and customer community. Talkdesk admins can also submit a ticket online at any time. Urgent tickets will receive a response within 15 minutes. Live support via phone is available 12 hours per day (9am-9pm PST). Talkdesk users also have the option to purchase premium support which includes a dedicated engineer, priority phone access, remote training sessions, and monthly reviews.

 

Integrations

Talkdesk has over 60 out-of-the-box integrations with third-party providers including Zendesk, Slack, Microsoft Teams, and more.

 

Why We Picked It

Like Genesys, Talkdesk has affordable prices with both providers offering plans from $75 per month. Customer support is also similar for the two providers The main differences between these two contact center solutions are features and integrations.

Talkdesk offers significantly more out-of-the-box integrations than Genesys and is therefore more suitable for contact centers with established systems in place.

Genesys, however, offers more communication channels than Talkdesk, with web chat, messaging apps, and co-browse in addition to the three channels offered by Talkdesk (email, chat and SMS).

 

3. Twilio Flex

Twilio Flex is a cloud-based contact center platform that allows businesses to create custom contact centers tailored to their specific needs. It is fully programmable, making it flexible, scalable, and able to integrate with any existing tools or workflows already in use by the contact center.

Twilio Flex customers use a set of APIs and developer tools to build customized voice, video and messaging experiences for their customers including custom IVR menus, automated messaging, and routing rules.

Twilio Flex Dashboard

 

Pricing & Plans

Twilio Flex offers two pricing plans. Instead of offering feature-based plans, Twilio Flex users can choose to pay a monthly or hourly rate.

Per hour pricing is $1 per hour per active user and is best for contact centers that need to scale up or down with seasonal changes.

Monthly pricing is $150 per month per named user regardless of volume or activity.

 

Standout Features

Below are some main features of Twilio Flex:

  • Omnichannel support: Twilio Flex provides a web-based agent desktop that enables agents to manage customer interactions across all channels including email, voice, video, SMS, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and WebChat. Agents can also access customer data and history and collaborate with coworkers.
  • Intelligent routing: Twilio Flex enables users to create workflows that define rules for routing communication to queues and agents, assigning priorities, and support escalation when needed. Workflows can implement skills-based routing for experienced workers, prioritized routing, or use other routing models. Out-of-the-box, Flex includes customizable, preset call flows for voice IVR, Messaging, and WebChat.
  • Reporting and analytics: Twilio Flex includes built-in analytics tools that enable businesses to track key metrics in real time and make data-driven decisions to improve customer experiences and agent performance.
  • Automatic call distribution (ACD): Twilio Flex can automatically route incoming calls to the most appropriate agent based on factors like skills, availability, and customer history.

 

Support Options

All Twilio Flex users have access to self-service support including documentation resources and community support and are able to submit online tickets. Twilio also offers three premium support plans.

For $250 per month (or 4% of monthly spend, whichever is greater), users have access to guaranteed response time in 3-9 hours and live chat support. For $1500 per month (or 6% of monthly spend, whichever is greater) users have a guaranteed response time of 1-3 hours as well as live phone support. For $5,000 per month (or 8% of monthly spend, whichever is greater) users have access to all of that plus a technical account manager, support escalation line and quarterly status review.

 

Integrations

Twilio Flex’s platform is based on APIs so it can integrate with nearly any CRM or workforce optimization app. Twilio Flex users can also integrate with Google Contact Center AI to retrieve relevant information for agents and recommend responses.

 

Why We Picked It

One of the key advantages of Twilio Flex is its programmability. Twilio Flex provides businesses with a set of APIs and developer tools that allow them to build custom workflows and integrations. While Genesys also provides some level of customization through configuration and scripting, it is not nearly as flexible as Twilio Flex.

Twilio Flex is also more flexible when it comes to pricing. Their hourly and monthly flat rate pricing plans allow customers to pay for only what they need, which is particularly helpful for contact centers that go through seasonal changes in volume or those looking to scale.

Alternatively, Genesys is better for contact centers that need something out-of-the box. Genesys’ platform is also slightly more reliable with an uptime of 99.99% compared to Twilio’s uptime guarantee of 99.95%

 

4. Nice CXone

Nice CXone (formerly Nice incontact) is a cloud-based customer experience platform that provides a suite of tools to help businesses improve customer interactions. It includes features such as omnichannel routing, analytics and reporting, workforce management, quality management, and automation. Nice CXone is an open platform offering both APIs and pre-built integrations, making it best for large, high volume call centers that require customization.

Nice CXone Dashboard

 

Pricing & Plans

  • Omnichannel AI forecasting
  • Advanced agent KPIs
  • AI omnichannel analytics
  • Customer sentiment
  • Conversational customer feedback

 

Standout Features

Below are some main features of NICE CXone:

  • Conversational AI bots: CXone offers no-code chat and voice bots that can be built, tested and maintained easily. Bots can free up agents by handling routine self-service requests such as password resets, balances transfers, status updates, and scheduling.
  • Multichannel service: Nice CXone offers over 30 communication channels including voice, SMS, MMS, webchat, Twitter, and Youtube. A unified digital inbox provides agents with customer history, CRM data and sentiment analysis for each communication.

Support Options

Nice CXone offers customer self-service via group discussions, user guides, and training materials. Customers can also send messages and submit tickets online. For 24/7 omnichannel technical support, customer support packages are available for purchase.

 

Integrations

Nice CXone offers a number of pre-built integrations with third party apps such as Salesforce, LogMeIn, SugarCRM, Fuze and Bullhorn. Nice CXone also offers APIs and SDKs to create custom integrations.

 

Why We Picked It

Nice CXone is similar to Genesys when it comes to reliability and features, but it offers more integrations and a level of customizability that Genesys does not. Due to its quote based pricing model and add-on features, it is likely to be a more expensive solution.

Nice CXone also has a lower ease of use and higher learning than competitors. Nice CXone is therefore best suited for enterprises, while Genesys is a good option for small businesses and SMBs.

 

5. Nextiva

Nextiva is an established hosted PBX, UCaaS, and CCaaS provider known for affordable pricing and high levels of customer support. Nextiva’s contact center solutions offer a wealth of advanced features including quality management, workforce management and workflow automation.

Nextiva call center analytics

 

Pricing & Plans

Nextiva does not provide pricing information for its CCaaS plans and companies must request a quote. There are, however, four bundled plans offered by Nextiva, below is a breakdown:

Core Premium Optimum Ultimate
Key features
  • Call recording
  • Nextiva voice integration
  • Blended inbound/outbound calling
  • Digital channels (Chat, email and SMS)
  • Essentials quality management (basic scorecards and screen recordings)
  • Enterprise quality management
  • Workforce management

  • Interaction analytics: Nextiva’s interaction analytics enable supervisors to view a range of metrics and activities including agent actions and customer sentiment.
  • Screen pops: Nextiva’s screen pop feature displays enhanced caller information to a call center agent during the call. It can show account numbers, purchases, help desk tickets, and more. The platform can pull data from a CRM for rich customer insights.

 

Support Options

All Nextiva contact center users have access to 24/7 live support as well as self-service customer service. A technical account manager (TAM) can be purchased as an add-on.

 

Integrations

Nextiva includes 19 integrations with popular CRM, contact center, and productivity apps including Five9, Lotus Notes and Hubspot.

 

Why We Picked It

Nextiva is a popular CCaaS brand like Genesys and both companies cater to businesses of all sizes. The two solutions are also similar when it comes to features. Nextiva, however, offers a higher uptime and better customer service, with 24/7 live support included in all plans.

Because Nextiva does not publish pricing for its CCaaS plans, it is difficult to tell which solution is more affordable, but Genesys is likely the less expensive option.

Freshdesk is a group of cloud-based customer support software products offered by the umbrella brand, Freshworks. Freshdesk’s contact center platform offers a range of features such as ticket management, automation, multi-channel support, knowledge base management, and reporting and can easily be combined with other Freshdesk solutions such as support desk and omnichannel software.

Support Options

Integrations

Why We Picked It

Freshdesk offers some of the lowest prices in the CCaaS space–even lower than Genesys. Additionally, Freshdesk is part of a larger suite of digital customer support products, including Freshworks. Freshworks  offers digital sales, marketing and IT management tools. This makes it a great pick for startups and small businesses that are looking to scale in the near or distant future.

On the other hand, Freshdesk is missing many of the advanced features that Genesys offers, such as quality and workforce management

Support Options

All Aircall users have access to Aircall’s self-service help center as well as email support, live phone phone support and live group onboarding sessions.

Why to Look for an Alternative to Genesys?

Genesys cloud contact center software is a popular choice for inbound and outbound call centers thanks to its affordable prices, omnichannel support capabilities, high level of security (including HIPAA and SOC 2 compliance) and long list of advanced VoIP features.

It may not be a perfect fit for every business, however. Users have complained that the Genesys platform is complex and difficult to set up–especially since live customer support is only available to Genesys users during set hours. Additionally, while Genesys is a reliable platform, it has a lower uptime than some competitors.

 

Which Genesys Alternative Should You Choose?

While Genesys is a popular contact center software solution, there are several excellent alternatives available. Each of the Genesys alternatives we have discussed offer a range of features and benefits to meet the unique needs of different organizations.

When selecting a contact center software solution, it's important to consider factors such as pricing, scalability, ease of use, and the specific features and integrations you need. It's also important to look at customer reviews and ratings to get a sense of how each solution performs in real-world scenarios.

Ultimately, the best Genesys alternative for your organization will depend on your specific requirements and priorities.

For example, for companies prioritizing customer service, Nextiva is a great option.

Organizations that need a high level of security would benefit from RingCentral.

Startups and small businesses might do best with an inexpensive solution such as Freshdesk or Aircall.

For large contact centers needing high-level customization, Twilio Flex is a great choice. By carefully evaluating each of the alternatives, you can make an informed decision and select the solution that is the best fit for your business needs.
