UCCE Integration with Salesforce

Hello All

 

We are looking forward to integrate CTIOS in ICM 8.5 with Salesforce.com.

Unlike ICM 7.X version we dont have CRM connectors available.

 

Wanted to check if anyone has performed such integration in their environment with ICM/UCCE 8.X versions or higher.

 

Thanks

Alok

Alok,

There are a few third-party connectors available out there. The one's I'm aware of:

  • Bucher + Suter Connect : interfaces with Finesse... probably one of the more popular options
  • InGenius Connector : interfaces directly with CTI Server
  • AMC Connector : interfaces directly with CTI Server

I've used AMC previously with SAP CRM, and have always had issues with it. Specifically, it has historically had problems knowing to connect to our side B CTI Server when side B is active but it can still reach side A.

We're in the process of launching an InGenius install for a move to Salesforce. Overall I've been impressed. The customer support is quite responsive, and the speed (and ease of install) of fixes and feature change requests is phenomenal. Their Service Cloud connector is beautiful, and highly customizable. All customization is done server-side, and there is no end-user install necessary. There is built in automated Salesforce Task creation, which is quite nice. Unlike what I've seen from AMC, InGenius handles A/B ICM failover quite well.

I have no experience with B+S, but keep in mind that your costs may be higher with them as you will need to build out Finesse if you haven't already. Finesse 9 or higher is probably the preferred way to go with them.

Search YouTube, you should be able to find some video demonstrations of each of these.

Hi Jameson,

I know this is an old thread, but wanted to check with you how your integration with InGenius is going for the past few years? We are looking for vendors for CRM integration and this company was recommended by someone.. Thanks!

Erika,

We're still happy with InGenius. Once it's setup, the solution is quite trouble-free.

Awesome. Thanks for the heads up!

Adding to the list of 3rd party connectors stated in this post

Cisco CUCM/UCCX/UCCE/PCCE Integration with Salesfoce ( CRM )

You can refer to attached 3rd Party Connector for more integration options

The connector exposes Web based APIs for integrating with CRMs

Hi,

I can only confirm what Jameson wrote about AMC. I am not the only one having not too good experience with them.

I do know Bucher+Suter and their products are of good quality.
