Uccx 10 + cucm 10 salesforce integration

Hello, everyone.

We have a customer who uses uccx 10 and cucm 10 and wants to integrate his call center with salesforce.

As I concluded after reading docs, forums and articles cisco call connector and crm connector are not the options as one of them is outdated and the other is going to be soon.

So actually I have 3 options:

1. Use cisco finesse. As I can see it allows building sort of workflows that will call salesforce's api and screen pop caller info in the integrated browser

2. Use third party app like acm or b+s

3. Implement our own connector using Jtapi(?). This one is going to be not easy and expensive.

 

Is my vision correct or am I missing anything?

Thank you

You're on the right track on

You're on the right track on your options:

 

1. Finesse integration would be weak at best. You still need APEX code on the SF side to do much of anything meaningful.

 

2. This is your best and most cost effective option.

 

3. If you have a lot of time on your hands, a good developer with Java/JTAPI and can do VF/APEX send me your resume (seriously). However don't expect your client to wait (or pay) for you to develop a connector and be the beta testers as well. If this kind of stuff interests I encourage you to play with it, but don't expect to sell this as your solution to your customer.

2nd what Tanner said.

2nd what Tanner said. Personally between AMC and B+S, I would start with B+S. Feel that their solution is far more mature.

One more vote for Bucher

One more vote for Bucher+Suter. I had the privilege to get acquainted with both company's products and approach and I was able to see the difference.

Well, now I need some

Well, now I need some clarification )
I'm totally confused with what finesse can do.

I guess I can basically set it up to display some page on some action. Right?
For example, when a call comes in - display page A.
When an aget picks up the phone - display page B.

Page A and page B can be salesforce pages with complicated search logic implemented in APEX. I mean, I can pass the caller's phone number, IVR selection and apex will make some complicated search and will return some HTML, which will be displayed by finess. 

So if I'm able to write some apex code, finess can be a good solution, except the fact that agents actually work not in salesforce GUI but in the finesse window. 

Is that correct?

Thank you for your replies. I

Thank you for your replies. 
I guess a third-party app will be the best solution.
