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.
Pathetic service. Horrible customer service. To top it all, today I received a call mentioning that they are not going to provide service to residential customers any more. Thwy would like me to move to another provider by 14th but are not going to reduce my monthly bill if I move out earlier. Least customer friendly company.. Caution to all those commercial customers.. stay away from this company. I wish I could give a rating of "-1".
Pathetic Customer Service, they never respond to email or returns your voice messages. Calls disconnect or doesn't connect at all...after thousands of attempt if call is connected then they will apologize and will show sincerity and will promise to help yout but nothing happens afterwards... you call them again no response... Trust me you will go mad.. thye have no values on commitment. Cusotmer are jokes for them and they belive do what you can do, i dont give a damn to you.. They call quality is going down.. call often gets dropped and many times there is no service... when you call internatioanlly then call quality is often no good... Now i am trying to call them to cancel but no response..already send so many emails but no response and they are billing me full price regualrly.. I need to take them to consumer court and probably higher a lawyer to team them a lesson.... i dont know who gave them the license to run the service in this country... there service shall be revoked... cheaters and highly unscrupulous people...
