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.
IP5280 is the worst telecommunications company I've ever dealt with. Even the BBB agrees with over 19 complaints in 3 years of writing this. We were promised feature after feature then when our order got to provisioning we're told that our features are not supported. This didn't happen once but 3 times so far, each time being reassurred that we'll be fine ... "just sign here" is what we're told. Even our sales guys left the company a week after we signed our contract saying he had a hard time working there so he quit. We get no return phone calls. Support has more tiers than wedding cake with nobody knowing what the other does. This company is a joke. A small business shouldn't have to worry about their telecommunications company. For us our issues are still not resolved and we've been worried and stressed since day once. Even after all of our issues our sales guy tells us today "No problem, just sign here and we'll make it right". We have to order more services. What a joke. Stay away!
