Our company got 8X8 and had trouble from the get go to set it up. I asked for help and even offered to pay someone to come out and set it up but was told they don't do that and I could watch some videos or look at their website for help. About 5 months later of never using the service and paying for it, the owner of the company passed away with Covid. I called and asked to cancel the service as we were deciding whether or not the company would continue. They said the only way to cancel is to pay the entire 2 year contract in full. Just a terrible customer service experience and a no very understanding or compassionate business. Think twice before signing up for their service!
The worst experience ever. I would put 0 stars if I could. It started off as a great partnership, but recently became a nightmare. Firstly - our call log history disappeared and it took them 4 DAYS to fix that, in the meanwhile we couldn’t even see the calls we might have missed during that time. Support was just terrible - unresponsive, unprofessional with a terrible English. They finally managed to fix that and I was almost certain to switch to another company, but they promised me that it is the last time something like this happens. Fast forward to today - we have been unable to send out any texts for a majority of our extensions since Thursday last week. It is Tuesday today and the issue is still there — even though they told me two or three times that it was fixed. As I am writing this review I have been listening to their TERRIBLE on hold melody for 39 minutes while they are supposedly transferring me to “a senior tech” — whatever it means. We are now in the sixth day of waiting, yesterday lost a $1500+ of revenue because of this and who know how much more we are going to lose because of this terrible company. We will be porting out our numbers and leaving 8x8 for good as soon as humanly possible and I will probably be putting a case together with my attorney to sue them for lost profits. My advise - never work with this company and if you are working with them now - run without looking back.
Please do not waste your time! What should have been a simple number porting and forward turned into a total nightmare. We started an order in April, in July, we had to fight with them to cancel because they never delivered any service. After the first 4wks, _WE_ finally had to ask for an update, because there is zero communication. Days later they finally tell us they can't even find the paperwork, so, we forwarded them the original email. We started the wait all over again from square one. Another 4wks of radio silence. We chase them again, more delayed response, more excuses. Reach out to the sales rep and he tells me the order is actually completed - which It was obviously not. Even their own online account portal showed no change. Confronted the sales and account reps again, 36hrs later and not a peep. All of these many weeks we faithfully paid the bill. They finally admit, they can see now (months later) why the order got lost - because they entered it wrong into Salesforce - TWICE. After the terrible communication, no action and 4 months of no service, I request them to just cancel the order and refund us. Silence again. We finally follow-up with them - just to get the cancellation completed and they try stalling on that, and instead offer us a 3mth credit, if we will not cancel. So, final icing on the cake - they couldn't even do the right thing and refund for the months of services they never delivered. The pièce de résistance, now they are trying to get my reviews blocked, because they would rather spend more time trying to covering up their bad service, rather than fix it.
SNS Professional scammed me by sending a bogus virus message with a number attached to it. They won’t refund my money so I contacted Avoxi for assistance as the number they used is provided by them. Avoxi straight-up refused to help me. Seems like they are covering up a Scam.
