8x8 is a cloud-based VoIP system that provides an array of communication services to businesses, including virtual office numbers, a versatile communications console and a wide range of analytics. The analytics can provide important call insights - including the average duration of a call and how many calls are abandoned or missed - as well as agent performance analytics, like who is completing the most calls or who has the longest wait times. 8x8 can also use that data to improve customer interactions, tracking agent skill sets in order to match customers with the agents that are most equipped to help them.
Intercom is a powerful set of tools for better managing your company’s customer support system. It includes a help center with a feedback system, which you can use to focus future articles on the growing needs of your customers, and it also provides a robust conversation system that allows you to assign support teams to customers based on specific criteria (about the customer or discussion topic), rather than just based on availability. Intercom is designed to create a more effective customer support network by specifically tracking and targeting your customers’ needs.

8x8's End Points
Track a wide range of data about interactions that your agents have, including what customers are being contacted, the durations of the calls and the number of abandoned calls. Then, integrate that data with any number of tools that track customer interactions to improve your overall customer service performance.
Monitor interactions within a specific campaign and see data like who is making calls, the total call time, the relevant phone numbers and the record statuses for those interactions i.e. new, queued, accepted, completed or scheduled. These individual campaign metrics can then be used to track campaign performance trends and improve the effectiveness of future campaigns.
Get details about an individual agent or group of agents, including their names, IDs, groups, and level of access. You can also use this data to request a range of other information about those agents from different endpoints, including what activities they are involved in or what interactions they have had.
Retrieve a list of the agent groups in your organization, including their names, IDs, and deletion statuses. This data will allow you to request more specific information about that group’s performance from other endpoints, such as the agent endpoint.
Intercom's End Points
Track the content of conversations and who is involved in them. This can be used to generate data about which topics customers are most concerned with so that you can further focus your support efforts accordingly.
Sort specific groups of users and companies that you are communicating with by creating an easily searchable tag that permeates all of your intercom databases, and you can use that tag to integrate other data about those groups throughout intercom.
Collect valuable customer data for your CRM, including basic contact info such as name, email address, and phone number but also more specific data, such as when they signed up, last signed in, and the tags associated with them.
Track the progress of your business relationship with companies (including a list of their users). Use that data to monitor how well your support network is meeting a company’s needs and how much of your overall revenue comes from each of the companies that are interacting with your business via intercom.
Automatically categorize users based on set criteria. Then Intercom can assign support teams based on that criteria, which allows you to more easily match customers with the support team members that can best assist them.
