This company is by FAR the worst company I have ever dealt with. Their customer service is poorly trained, they promise features that don't exist, its impossible to reach them for help, they try to beg you to stay on as a customer so you don't cancel but then make it IMPOSSIBLE to cancel their services. I will never ever recommend this company to anyone. I can't believe I stuck along as long as I did. For a telecommunications company, they are AWFUL at communicating, being transparent, and being an actual human being for how crappy of a customer experience they provide for their "valued clients". TURN AWAY DO NOT CONSIDER THIS COMPANY FOR YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS.
8 x 8 is charging me $740 to cancel service. I have been a customer since 2017. Needed to cancel as my business closed for Covid 19 They where horrifying to speak with about this. They had 3 different amounts then landed on the $740 being the most. This had nothing to do with monthly charges, as those where always automatic and up to date. This is a totally made up number as they can not produce a contract. They tell me to reference small print. The small print is not clear- and they cant confirm that was even there with I started service in 2017. There is nothing about an amount for a cancelation fee in the small print. The whole thing is criminal and fraudulent. You can't even get a professional on the phone. They where all emotional and escalated. One even laughed at me. This is beyond traumatizing. I didn't know stuff like this still happened. Please- I will do everything I can to protect other small businesses from this horrifying company. Please- there are many other VOIP companys- pick any of them but 8 x8- and please ask them about hidden fake contracts, and cancelation terms.
This provider has grown progressively worse over time. They used to be easy to work with and had a very personal touch. They replaced that with call center staff that don't know how to help you and inflexibility. They have implemented business practices that have caused a great many problems for our customers and end-users. The used to excel at communication but that seem to drop the ball on that a lot now. They appear to be very focused on selling their hosted platform and really aren't interested in anything else. Even the host platforms seem to be getting bad reviews now. I would stay away from them and go with a larger provider with more experience and a better quality of staff and leadership.
The Proximiti Call Center is very easy to use. Also, I'm connected to the internet via fixed wireless, but the quality of calls are surprisingly good. I've tried vonage before and I didn't get that good of call quality. I don't like that I have to leave a voicemail for customer service to call me back.
