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 had no clue what a SIP trunk was until I talked to these guys. Bottom line is that I got what I needed which was a fast and easy way to have a phone system and long distance without the upfront cost and hassle of all the usual hardware. I also liked not having to deal with two phone companies ie: one for local phone lines/calls and another for long distance. OnePipe made it VERY easy with no set up fees and no long term commitment. I also like the mobile product they have… I can seamlessly transfer a call from my office phone to my cell phone (mid call) which is very nice.
I needed some numbers in Australia and found these guys online. Chatting with someone on their site, they set me up a demo account with a Sydney number right then and there. I kept the number plus ordered a few more later that week.
