Ytel Feature Reviews

24 reviewers had the following to say about Ytel's features:

Andrew B.

Good Customer Service, Very sharp learning curve

2018-08-21

Generally, I have had a decent experience with Ytel. The tech support people have been really helpful across the board, although sometimes, I need them to explain things a couple times because they have a tendency to speak over the layman's head. Admins really need to be able to learn on the fly because of the number of variables that need to be accounted for in running a full campaign

Pros

Reporting is easy to access and analyze.

Cons

The lag time waiting for a screen to refresh is too long.

An excellent program that scales up well with our company, increasing calls and efficiency.

2018-05-06

Pros

This has been an excellent experience, with a UI that's easy to use and full of features.

Cons

There are no major cons with the software that we've experienced, so we're extremely satisfied. We experience minor delays when hanging up with callers but the delay is so minimal we never notice. Otherwise, all network interations are immediate.

Tried Many Call Center Solutions, None of them come CLOSE to Ytel!

2016-06-03

Pros

For example, I know first hand that they are working on an integration with a company called Call Criteria to easily integrate a third party quality assurance solution into their system!

Cons

The one item that is lacking for a very advanced user like myself is their reporting. Even though they are open and actually customized a report for us that we were able to use, it didn't come out of the box like some other system.

Recommendations to others considering Ytel

Don't get sold by other companies about them saying that their software is better because X, Y, and Z. To be honest, a dialer is a dialer and its the support, user interface, and dialing options that make a call center robust and dynamic. Fortunately, Ytel has it all when it comes to evaluating the dialers. Others out there are missing that proper user interface, or better yet, don't have the uptime that Ytel does! I can't tell others how many times my dialer went down. You'd think, they way they sell and promote their software, that this never happened; however, I can tell you first hand that it does. For the last 2+ years I've been on Ytel, I think I've been down for a total of 5 minutes and that was when we should have been off the phones anyways. Honestly speaking, the others are lots of smoke and mirrors, Ytel is really the only one that is complex enough when you need it and easy enough to navigate making the whole process easy!

By far the BEST outbound features on the market

2016-06-08

Pros

I have a call center with just over 100 agents and we do heavy outbound dialing.

Cons

I would really like them to build out their admin mobile app so I can have better analytics on the go.

Patrick Deserves a PLATINUM metal !

2016-08-03

The set up is messy and everyone on the support team has been very helpful when I call in with questions.

Pros

When set up properly it is very easy to create reports and sort information in a way that makes sense.

Cons

Running an export call report and sorting is also time consuming and results in a different answer each time the list resets.

Ytel: Efficient Dialer

2019-07-25

Ytel is a good Dialer system to use for beginner call centers.

Pros

If you´re looking to call more contacts rather than have quality calls, this is the best dialer system to use i guess!

Cons

There are a few negatives to the Ytel system,for example, calls are not automatically recorded.

Good software overall, but they don't monitor their server well

2017-06-28

Pros

They are mostly a vicidial rebranding, but the UI is much more easy to use than vicidial.

Cons

Once, our server was full of recordings and had zero disk space.

I was able to monitor the screeners and record every call that came in and went out

Pros

I like the software cause I was able to link it w/the company phone system and ut it on an automatic dialer

Cons

There is nothing that I did not like about it. Very convenient!

Easy to learn and use

2019-10-15

It was user friendly and easy to learn.

Pros

The system keep a record of the calls and what the disposition was so that I could easily check the log in case I needed to check the time of a call.

Cons

Unfortunately, we had to continuously log in and out of the application in order for the system to update any calls blocked.

Recommendations to others considering Ytel

I would say to give them a call and let them show you what the system has to offer. The biggest factor that set them apart from their competitors is the fact that they actually own their own network as opposed to using a third party to connect the calls. I was skeptical at first that this really mattered, but since being on their network I really have noticed a huge difference in our connection rates. The sound quality has also been top notch. Also, one of their pitches is that since they do own their own network that they are able to monitor their network 24/7 which insures the most possible uptime, which has proven to be true as well. I have never had any downtime since signing up.

Ynot Ytel

2019-07-24

Initially it sounded great but the setup was wonky and not very fluid. Lots of unanswered questions as to the hows/whys of some of the features or settings. We eventually discontinued use once we figured how to just cancel the service and not suspend it.

Pros

The Auto-dialer feature and automated message for VM pickup is a really nice feature to leverage.

Cons

Billing is confusing, customer service isn't very fluid (or fluent in conversational English some times). To suspend or cancel service is not very clear and the billing cycle/period is confusing as well.

Finally a robust system that doesn't take a PHD to run

2016-05-20

Pros

The system is also very easy to manage especially for my agents which makes training new hires a lot easier.

Cons

They have told me that their full multi channel system should be out later this year which will bring it all into 1 interface though so it's not really that bad.

Make sure your support is going to be handled in house and preferably in the same country as you do business in. Also, make sure there are no hidden fees in your bill. Before switching to Ytel I thought I had a very cheap price on my previous vendor but with all the hidden fees for things like recording ports, channels etc. I ended up paying way more than expected. Ytel had a very straight forward billing that made it easy to understand.
