We've been trying to get 8x8 to fix a chronic problem with our recorded calls getting randomly lost or corrupted. We call and email them daily and get little to no response. The typical response is "that department is very busy with other problems, we'll get to yours when we get to it." They say that the problem gets escalated to a higher tier but we still haven't gotten a response and it's been over a week now. I've called our rep Aldrich and he says that he's done all that he can and I've talked to Donovan who is apparently the head of the tech department and he is the one that told me that they'll get to our calls when they get to them. Very unresponsive when it comes to resolving issues.
After 12 months of frustration, we have moved away from 8X8. The issue was never the suite of features. It was customer service for a persistent problem. The basic requirement for a telephone system is that it allows me to make and receive calls. For 12 months, we were unable to receive call from many local people. I was told that it was not the fault of 8X8 and to contact our old provider, Verizon. Verizon said they had ported the number and that was all they could do. We have switched to 3CX. Within 2 days, the local contact was able to trace and resolve the problem. Anyone can now call. My experience shows that 8X8 is not willing to help solve a serious problem. I should also add that they offered no compensation for this issue. I cannot recommend 8x8.
As with many other VoIP providers, support is very poor. The issues "can't be replicated".... Eventually one just gives up. We used them for some origination services because of their easy to use GUI but reliability of the service is very questionable. We experienced a number of outages and the company's management did not do anything to rectify the situation other than admitting "an error on their part". CDR was not working fo rthe better pasrt of a year. We ordered several DIDs that turned out not to be availible (previously assigned). This is certainly not a company that can handle the needs of a wholesale client.
Best Features to name a few: Easy to use portal - lot of providers portals are clunky Geo-Redundant Pops/Proxies: Denver, L.A., Frankfurt, and Hong Kong - was told more coming soon Excellent Customer Support - always freindly and helpful, and can be reached 24/7 - I can finally relax Flexible pricing for Wholesalers - they were able to get me first class rates for my customers that want cheap rates, and have premium routes for my demanding customers that want quality The only carrier to offer a real billing Solution - DTH billing Dialer Friendly carrier - high or low ASR, they will take the traffic International Carrier - premium and non-cli FreeSwitch Friendly - their support knows FreeSwitch!! Hosted Servers and PBXs - they will do custom solutions for High Availability, remote backup, remote voice recording, etc.... Secured VMs - the VMs I bought were FreePBX Asterisk based, and were properly patched and up to date with iptables Multi-Alert 911 solution - this feature is cool, it will notify you by SMS if a customer dial 911 - no more crazy bills IP Authentication - no user based authentication yet, but was told it is being added within a few weeks Keep up the great work guys
