Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Queue callback, agent skill-based routing, call reporting, and the flexibility to log in from anywhere are some of the most valuable features for our organization.""I'm interested in all the features we're using and the reporting that's needed to get them up and running.""Agent Assist and AI server are the two best features because they remind new and existing agents about tips and generate detailed case summaries, saving them the time and effort of making small modifications before posting.""Before using the WFO and its analytics, our quality teams would listen to only 5 percent of contacts a week, per employee, which is a very small part of what an employee is doing... Now, this tool does an automatic evaluation of 100 percent of their calls. It has certainly helped the QA teams in their training, and that, in turn, helps our clients.""It helped reduce costs in our organization. We've saved on staffing and we've saved on software by 10% to 15%.""The reporting is good, and we're testing AI summaries now. Also, the workflow automation feature, so far, has been good.""The admin tools are most valuable, such as using the UI to configure all the campaigns and all the settings that we use. Also, the monitoring panels it has are very good. Our supervisors and sales managers build dashboards in the solution so that we can understand how our operation is performing throughout the day. That is very useful.""Five9 has made our contact center more flexible by taking it to the cloud. The user experience for agents is great because everything is on one dashboard, from the dialer to the workflows for transferring calls and creating tickets."

More Five9 Pros →

"It's very reliable and we haven't had much experience with any downtime or dropped calls, which, of course, is one of the most important things to us. That's been a big win for us.""Being the president of our organization, I love the secured email because there are a lot of messages that I have to send out that are secure. There have not been any issues with sending the messages or with individuals receiving and viewing them.""LinkLive makes us more progressive in terms of efficiency and productivity. It is just a better customer experience.""There are so many valuable features. One of the things that we really appreciate is the uptime. LinkLive rarely, if ever, goes down or disconnects calls. We appreciate that we don't have to be concerned about dropping calls or losing a customer mid-call as a result of those issues.""One of the primary features we use it for is the Agent Connect screen-sharing feature. I find it invaluable when troubleshooting customer problems with online banking. It saves us time, and time is money.""In the future, we may take advantage of LinkLive's video or phone capabilities, but we strictly use text chat now, so I would say that is most valuable to us at the moment.""The presentation of calls within the applications used to access conference call forwarding is straightforward and user-friendly.""Our agents find the authenticated session feature to be the most helpful. It can take 30 to 45 seconds to verify someone with verifying questions through digital banking, and we didn't have the capability of verifying questions through digital banking before LinkLive. This feature allowed us to work in partnership with our digital banking provider, who can see that a customer is within an authenticated digital banking session. They do not need to ask verifying questions again to ensure that the person is who they say they are. That is one of the nicest things for us, and especially for our agents."

More LinkLive Pros →

Cons
"Integration with third-party solutions can be difficult and has room for improvement.""The SMS feature could use some improvement as far as the opt-out process goes.""What would make Five9 better is a partnership with an SMS AI solution, which would make Five9 pretty powerful.""There are some minor issues with some of their filtering that I'd like them to handle on their back end. The only limitation I can think of is that I'm always looking backward and can't look forward. I can't see how many calls are scheduled for tomorrow based on our system.""Five9's stability needs to be improved.""I would like to see more of the functions from the original Five9 adapter included in the Salesforce Plus adapter, as they do not automatically update when Five9 releases new features.""The reporting could be a bit better.""There are certain issues around features that Chrome has deployed that we have to figure out. When we bring them to Five9's attention, they are usually able to help us navigate them. It seems that sometimes they already know about an issue, so it would be helpful if they more proactively engaged with us first..."

More Five9 Cons →

"In our experience, the areas where there could be improvement are training, staff adoption, and getting the staff comfortable with utilizing the complexities of LinkLive, such as screen sharing.""On the back-office side, it houses email addresses for when you look at the agent hunt groups. I can't use my work email address in my own online banking account because it messes up whether I'm an employee or a customer.""I would like to see more video conferencing, some degree of mobile apps, and artificial intelligence. That's the wave of the future with healthcare. Our providers are all on-the-go, so anything that allows them to remain mobile and not have to go to a desk to take a phone call, would be a good addition.""The onboarding process could be enhanced by providing comprehensive training to all users, not just administrators.""In the browser-based experience, I would love to see a hold button. Presently, you have to drag the hold music into a call and then drag it out. A hold button would really be easier, particularly if you have to put someone on hold multiple times.""I would like LinkLive to rework the notification system. There's an audible sound, and an alert pops up on the screen. However, in Microsoft Teams, an unviewed chat message appears red on my taskbar. That doesn't happen in LinkLive. My only enhancement request is to improve the notifications.""The initial enrollment of employees can be a little bit challenging. It tends to require the need to reach out to Link-Live support to iron out a bug or two.""Our agents have made some requests for some automated responses and some ways that they could improve the way those get pushed out. Right now, the way that canned responses are set up, they could be set up with as many responses as you want. However, the one thing that they liked from our previous providers is that you could categorize responses. So, if you have a certain area where you might have four or five responses related to one topic, then you could easily just click on the topic and see your responses. That is one area which is not a huge deal, but it gives back those five seconds that you are looking for a response to get more lengthy responses out to a customer. It would be nicer to have that a little bit more available."
