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.
I own a small business and only need to occasionally send faxes. I didn't want to have to pay the phone company for a dedicated ring or line for a fax in our office even though fax machines themselves have come down in pricing to something extremely affordable! I found MyFax to be convenient and well priced. I initially signed up for the lowest plan of $10/month but realized that I wasn't sending or receiving faxes each and every month. I called MyFax and asked them if there was any other plan that would suit my needs. They offered me a $5 plan with up to 50 pages a month. I was really impressed with the way they were willing to work with me instead of losing me as a customer. I think MyFax is a great service- I really like how easy it is to create any file from PDF to jpg and send it anywhere. It is so simple having my own fax number and receiving faxes and confirmations directly into my email account without having to log into MyFax to check and see if I have any pending faxes. I highly recommend this company especially for individuals without a fax machine or small company's that do not use faxes on a regular basis.
