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.
We tried to use this system for about a year and it was an absolute nightmare. Dropped calls, phones crashing in the middle of a conference call, FXO sound quality was a complete joke, faxing never worked despite using supposedly supported interop scenarios and T.38 set up correctly, and numerous features that were supposedly included with our system were showing as blocked by the license. When we complained to PBXnSIP (now Snom) and tried to get tech support, they complained to us that we were a direct customer and that was not how they did business, we should instead contact the reseller for tech support. The reseller told us that their only channel of support with PBXnSIP was via the online support forums. It seems that PBXnSIP really went out of their way to try to avoid providing tech support. PBXnSIP was a total waste of time and money and caused a great deal of frustration. We switched to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express a while ago and couldn't be happier, unlike PBXnSIP it works reliably as advertised, interop with other products is fantastic. Unlike the Snom phones, the sound quality is actually good too.
We had high hopes to save money with them but its been short of a nightmare. We have swithed to a new company and haven't had any problems like with pbxnsip.
