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.
Whenever we've had and issue, the folks at MetroFax have been responsive and resolved things right away. Our companies have used their services for years. After all this time we simply expect and consistently receive impeccable service form MetroFax In the end it always boils down to the people providing the service. Other providers of internet services come and go. MetroFax has always been there for us. Alan R.
MetrFax allows for 1000 fax pages per month, which is huge. It has a very easy to use interface that I truly believe ANYONE can learn within minutes and they do not charge per minute but per page that is sent, regardless of the time it takes to send. Love the 24 x 7 Customer Support. I haven't had to use it much though I have had a question or two and was able to get through at whatever time it was that I was call I was happy with the 30 day free service even though it was for the 2nd month after signing up. (Still FREE, Gotta love that!) Metrofax has been a good program for my medium sized business and as I see it now, there is no reason for me to change or even shop around for anything else.
