About VICIdial

VICIdial is a contact / call center software suite targeting the telephony and communications requirements of every business up to and including enterprise level. Built on an open source platform and boasting a global installation base, VICIdial boasts a full-featured predictive dialer while also functioning as an Automated Call Distribution (ACD) system. Agents are therefore able to predictively or manually call through campaign lists while also handling inbound and outbound calls on a blended basis. From within a single, centralized web-based interface agents can also respond to inbound emails and engage in live customer chat sessions embedded into an existing website via widget. Routing options and queue prioritization rules then ensure that calls and emails are directed to the most qualified agent, with managers able to listen in on agent calls to monitor performance.

Boasting over 2,000 features in total, VICIdial goes on to include automatic call recording that can be stopped or started at any time, while logging calls and call status. User levels and permissions can be set to restrict certain features or campaign accessibility, before web-based data exporting and sharable real time reporting enables authorized agents, managers and team leaders to analyze call campaign performance.

    I still can't believe it's free!

    It allowed to make my calls with a predictive dialer with all the features you can imagine, eliminate my dependence on land lines, and have a system my agents could log in to locally or remotely.

    Pros

    First that you can download and install and use it completely 100% free, no strings attached. Second, it has every feature you could possibly imagine for dialing solution software and predictive dialers. Third, the reporting is all one 1 screen, there are many reports, inbound, outbound, carrier reports, etc. Fourth, they have a user forum where, and I kid you not, you can post a question or an issue you are having, and either a VICIdial expert or one of the other many experts on the forum will respond to your question usually within an hour or two, always that same day, and answer your question or help you work through your issue. Fifth, it's now the world's most popular dialing solution software, so you can find answers to about any question by just googling. Sixth, the hardware requirements are low. When I first installed VICIdial I used an old desktop and turned it into a VICIdial server. And seventh and maybe most importantly, VICIdial is constantly evolving. New revisions come out regularly, and new versions of the installer VICIbox are produced regularly, and they are new features constantly, and the program keeps getting better and better! In their next version of VICIbox they are offering a webrtc softphone built right into the program, so you won't need to download and configure softphones anymore. In summary, VICIdial is everything you always wanted in a predictive dialer or software dialing solution, and it is absolutely free of charge!

    Cons

    I installed VICIdial in March of 2017. It took me a weekend to set up campaigns, upload lists to call, configure a VoIP carrier, and put in the settings I needed for my campaigns. I installed on a Sunday afternoon and started dialing the next day on Monday morning at 9AM. And everything worked! Now it's June of 2018 and I've been using VICIdial for 1 year and 2 months. Although I got everything working the very first day, over time I have discovered the hundreds of features VICIdial offers and how to set them and configure them. The VICIdial system I use today is much different from the one I started with a year ago. Well the system is exactly the same, same operating system, same vicidial same asterisk, but I take advantage of many features now that I didn't even realize VICIdial had when I first installed it. If there is a con about using this software, and I do not believe there is, it would be VICIdial has so many features it takes a little time to learn all of them

    At GOSAT we use VICIdial in our contact center for loan sales to a local bank in Brazil, where we integrate it 100% with the bank.

    Pros

    VICIdial is the most popular open-source Contact Center Solution in the world and it can become a Swiss Army Knife for those who grasp the infinite possibilities of this incredible system.

    We were able to meet all our needs and overcome all challenges using VICIdial.

    Cons

    I know that VICIdial is not for this purpose, what I miss is an integration in the AGC interface (Agent) with WhatsAPP and Facebook messanger.
    We do this today through other solutions, it would be perfect integrated with VICIdial.

    Reasons for Choosing VICIdial

    I spent about six months researching OpenSource tools to be used in the contact center and VICIdial was the only one that met all my requirements.

    Reasons for Switching to VICIdial

    Because it is open source and has a more active community in the world, and the fact that it is constantly updated and improves.

    We are answering the calls efficiently and effectively. I am able to track agent performance at a high level to monitor performance and efficiency.

    I have great hope to read the manuals and learn what else I can do with Vici.

    Pros

    Vici is easy to use and contains a significant amount of reporting to track agent efficiency.

    Cons

    The interface is outdated and could use a cosmetic overhaul. some of the reporting is inconsistent. The way abandonment is calculated in the real time main report is by taking dropped calls and dividing it into calls answered. Under inbound daily report it calculates the abandonment correctly by taking dropped calls and dividing it into calls offered.

    Lacks some of the modern features available in other phone software: After Call Survey, Track short abandoned calls, Forced call backs, Scheduled reporting.

    In the IVR we can only offer our customers to leave a voicemail with a window prompt instead of allowing them to press a number at any time to leave a vm.

    Response from Vicidial Group

    As for the inbound drop-rate, there are configuration changes you can make to have the Real-Time report use all-calls to calculate the drop percentage. The default behavior is to use Answered calls because the vast majority of VICIdial clients use outbound, and taking dropped calls out of Answered calls is a regulatory requirement in most countries.
    Also, After-Call-Surveys and Force-Scheduled-Callbacks are available as standard features in VICIdial.

    I'm able to make separate IDs for all my virtual calling agents, and I'm able to track all their calls with time stamp as well as their call recordings, I'm also able to see the number of hours they were logged in and the whole activity during that time.

    Pros

    This is a superb software, I like the auto calling system as well and the manual dialing where I just have to upload the data file and keep dialing each number just with a click.

    Cons

    This software worked perfect for me, didn't give me trouble, so I don't have anything to mention here.

    The amount of customization that. you can do, and the sheer power of the dialing platform
