"We have been satisfied with the performance of Sound Telecom and it has provided better service to our customers."

Recommendations:

We would recommend Sound Telecom, if particularly 24/7 bilingual and US presence is required. There are many companies provide such service but this one seemed far better to me.

Experience:

We selected Sound Telecom based on the recommendation from friends and internal employees. Also, it was under our budget after negotiation and hence we went for it. Earlier, we had lot of problems before engaging Sound Telecom such as 24/7 customer support was not available (during night time it used to wait for long or either never answered), representatives were not courteous and they used to talk with an accent that was not understandable by many of our customers, and it did not support Spanish. Hence we were looking for a change and to drill down our options to this one. If I mention some other benefits of Sound Telecom, which we might need from time to time, are that we can customize our requirement such as for technical support, or for third party verification and also for seeking customer's feedback of our organization. Hence we get all the things with Sound Telecom that we were expecting (and even more which we currently do not use but might want to seek for later such as email support to clients). In all currently, we are satisfied with Sound Telecom considering its price and our objective and requirement. Bilingual support (Spanish and English), technical support, 24/7 support, and customer's feedback. We have been satisfied with the performance of Sound Telecom and it has provided better service to our customers. Our feedback has improved due to them.

Pros:

They provide 24/7, bi-lingual, customised services and representatives having the same accent as our customers.

Cons:

We need to write the script and provide it to them. If they would have helped or provided services in that regards, it would have been very helpful and less pain for an organisation like ours.

"The service has been well above average, customer support has been helpful and efficient."

Recommendations:

None that I can think of.

Experience:

MAP Communications is locally based, and I had heard excellent comments through word of mouth. The increased call volume and lack of customer support reputation search for provider. We have their live virtual receptionist option. The service has been well above average, customer support has been helpful and efficient.

Pros:

Value to service cost.

Cons:

Its lack of brand reputation.

"It has performed well, the only time it fails to meet my expectation is when it’s hard to handle everything."

Recommendations:

I think anyone who starts a small to medium business should use this.

Experience:

Our company selected this company [Map Communications] mainly for three reasons. First, we do not have any communication yet, we just started business. Second, we need something that wouldn't require all of our budget. Third, because I heard from others that this company is decent for the price. I use the premium version. It has performed well, the only time it fails to meet my expectation is when it’s hard to handle everything.

Pros:

I like how easy is it to use, and how much you can get out of it.

Cons:

None.

"I like the volume of calls they are able to receive."

Recommendations:

It would be nice if the representatives handle calls for specific industries so they can have a little more knowledge.

We needed to be able to screen more calls and answer more calls. We use voicemail and customer service directories. MAP Communications performance is average but sometimes inconsistent.

Pros:

I like the volume of calls they are able to receive.

I do not like the inconsistency of the representatives.

"The service has met our expectations and has been there when customers needed help."

Recommendations:

Try it and see if it meets what you need out of a service because they offer a free trial. You really can't go wrong with that because free is free.

Experience:

We chose MAP Communications because of their costs and around the clock setup. We did not need that but it was nice to have it at no additional charge. We make use of their after-hours support, and bilingual services. The service has met our expectations and has been there when customers needed help.

Pros:

They provide 24/7 answering service and it is US based.

Cons:

Nothing so far.
