"Mid-Market" 8x8 customer since 2012 with 34 lines and 10 toll free numbers. I was hired in 2013. From the moment I was hired I was getting complaints about dropped calls, spotty call quality, and issues with the softphones. After cleaning up the network, I came to realize it wasn't us (or our 500Mbps DIA connection) it was 8x8. Constantly have had problems over the past five years. If you need support, expect long hold times (30 minutes +) and to have to start running the gauntlet at the base level of support. If, you can get the person on the other end to understand that you're in a higher tier of support, expect more hold time. It's incredibly frustrating considering hosted PBX/VOIP services are supposed to save you time and make your life easier. I'm constantly having to call 8x8 support due to not being able to call certain numbers. Their softphone app constantly crashes or interferes with other programs like webex, chrome/firefox, VNC, Lync, Skype, Hipchat, etc. and often causes issues with computer sound (running Dell optiplex and XPS in this office) forcing a reboot to restore sound levels. The "meetings" part of the softphone app is a disaster. It's so bad we just ended up using gotomeeting instead. The conference lines kept having a problem where if you called in with an iPhone people could hear you but you couldn't hear anyone else. Billing is absolute nonsense. My company's accounting team and IT got together with 8x8 trying to determine what we were being billed for and no one at 8x8 could actually tell us. it's been 6 weeks and we're still waiting on an answer. This company has been an absolute nightmare to work with. If you decide to be brave and use them, you'll regret it. Here's an image of their softphone desktop app (and the amount of time I've been on hold with their support team for yet another number that can't be dialed. You'd think calling from Austin to Anaheim would be easy, huh?) http://imagehost.phoenix-nest.com/?di=6154948616415

8x8 just gets the job done for us. A good phone system is one you don't have to think about much. It has all the features we need, and works well with our remote team on their smartphones. Haven't experienced any down time or customer service issues either.

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...
