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.
Everything is OK while it works. The service was down 5 times this year. The last time it was out two business days in a row. Support does not exists during outages - nobody replies to email, pickup phone, etc. It is not a business solution. Would work as non-critical home office solution. This is not a serious player.
We switched over from Etherspeak in May of 2012. We are a Cisco re-seller that deals with everything but VOIP. I checked into fully managed VOIP and SIP setup with Charter, AT&T, etc. They all wanted big bucks for not alot of function. We did not always have the best experience with our previous SIP provider, and decided to give SIP one last try before going back to old PBX/POTS. We have had a very good experience with NexVortex so far. I can only speak regarding the features we use. Our shop is all Cisco Unified IP phones, with a Cisco UC540 phone system. I have NV setup as a SIP trunk directly into our Cisco UC540, over a dedicated SIP/voice T1. Since we are are a small company, we only use around 12 lines at a given time. We also have 2-3 remote users at a given time tunneled back to the main office, all using the same SIP phone system. I can tell you it all works perfectly without issue. Our biggest concern in switching to NexVortex was uptime/reliability. We did not have the best experience in the past with other SIP providers. I can tell you that is completely different with NexVortex. They are not perfect, and did go down one time in July. Fortunately that outage was only for 30 minutes, and we have not had a single other issue. This is far greater reliability than we have experienced with any other SIP provider. I love the online interface, and specifically the disaster recovery feature. It has saved us a couple times when our T1 went down, as it automatically sent calls to the old POTS lines. Their billing is accurate, and the rates are reasonable. The call quality is good, even using g729 codec which is what we use. It's one of the few VOIP companies we have found that actually delivers what they promise, at the rate they promised.
