"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.
What a terrible company to deal with. Overcharged me by 32 dollars on my credit card. Called them, waited over an hour, to be told they are unable to refund anyone for any reason, even admitting they did overcharge me!! I am shocked at the blatant thieving from this company. Advised them to cancel my service but naturally have to wait a year! Appalling they get away with it!!!! Debbie
Been a customer for a few years now. Forgot to pay my yearly fee so once i realized i paid it & the service still was connected. After a few minutes called customer service & tried to troubleshoot & it still didn't work. Customer service seen the balance was paid for the year & couldn't get why it wasnt back on. They had tech support call & they said oh we dont have the year plan anymore, its only the 3 or 5 yr plans. I said your website took my yearly pymt & now all of a sudden i have to pay 3yrs.? He said well due to covid-19 the website hasn't updated & i told him that wasnt my fault & needed to honor the yr i paid for & he said no. You cant have one thing online & then tell me something different. Bad service & it took hours to restore.
