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.

Mitel's Hosted PBX solution has really delivered all the businesses needs. Having a team of employees and contractors who collaborate remotely and customers based throughout South America, this solution has really provided the flexibility that we need.

We have been with Mitel for over 20 years. We had a server based system and the service was always great. We decided to switch to their cloud product so we could move away from the server system. The switch over took months and months with poor attention to the details, constant follow up calls and hours and hours of work on my part correcting the issues created by Mitel support. Follow up meetings were scheduled to work the punch list but the support people never called when they said they would. I had to constantly send emails to get their attention including the managers. When you call support, you will be on hold for a very long time. On one occasion, the phone system went down. I called support and the woman took the information and said she would pass it on to the technical department. She had no idea when the service would be repaired or who would be calling. She was dismissive in her attitude and truly could care less. The system still s needs some tweaking and I am again waiting for support. The final blow is that they started billing me for the system while it was being installed and debugged while I was being billed for the old system. Customer service for the bill was as unwilling to help as the support people. There are plenty of systems out there. I would look into other products.
