"Mid-Market" 8x8 customer since 2012 with 34 lines and 10 toll free numbers. I was hired in 2013. From the moment I was hired I was getting complaints about dropped calls, spotty call quality, and issues with the softphones. After cleaning up the network, I came to realize it wasn't us (or our 500Mbps DIA connection) it was 8x8. Constantly have had problems over the past five years. If you need support, expect long hold times (30 minutes +) and to have to start running the gauntlet at the base level of support. If, you can get the person on the other end to understand that you're in a higher tier of support, expect more hold time. It's incredibly frustrating considering hosted PBX/VOIP services are supposed to save you time and make your life easier. I'm constantly having to call 8x8 support due to not being able to call certain numbers. Their softphone app constantly crashes or interferes with other programs like webex, chrome/firefox, VNC, Lync, Skype, Hipchat, etc. and often causes issues with computer sound (running Dell optiplex and XPS in this office) forcing a reboot to restore sound levels. The "meetings" part of the softphone app is a disaster. It's so bad we just ended up using gotomeeting instead. The conference lines kept having a problem where if you called in with an iPhone people could hear you but you couldn't hear anyone else. Billing is absolute nonsense. My company's accounting team and IT got together with 8x8 trying to determine what we were being billed for and no one at 8x8 could actually tell us. it's been 6 weeks and we're still waiting on an answer. This company has been an absolute nightmare to work with. If you decide to be brave and use them, you'll regret it. Here's an image of their softphone desktop app (and the amount of time I've been on hold with their support team for yet another number that can't be dialed. You'd think calling from Austin to Anaheim would be easy, huh?) http://imagehost.phoenix-nest.com/?di=6154948616415

8x8 just gets the job done for us. A good phone system is one you don't have to think about much. It has all the features we need, and works well with our remote team on their smartphones. Haven't experienced any down time or customer service issues either.

In a "Need it Now" technological world, there is no room for poor customer service and unqualified representation. My company had many issues with FonAngle, mostly, the fact that anytime our Tech Support wanted to talk to FonAngle tech support, it was like we had just asked to meet with The Pope. We had to e-mail someone, every time, anytime we had an issue. Every time I picked up the phone, I received a run-around telling me that I had to e-mail my issue to a generic email and wait for a response. Who has time to wait? Who has a Tech Support number, that only directs you to submit an e-mail. I digress.. The main issue with FonAngle is their horrible customer service. When we tried to get better customer service, they actually told my company to look for better service elsewhere. So we did. And I must tell you, Jive.Com has been amazing.

The support has been very good. Our representative has been responsive and has kept me informed as to progress on the issue we had, which was something FonAngle had not encountered before. He arranged a time with me that was convenient to spend - only about 10 minutes total - to correct the problem on each of our devices. He went the extra mile and restored some data that normally we, as the client, may have been asked to do. He saved us time and more aggravation. In addition, I had a question re billing which he immediately forwarded to billing. The billing rep answered within minutes via email.
