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.
At $9.95 per month, I feel that RapidFax's individual and small business plan is a competitively priced internet fax service option. They offer a thirty day trial period which includes 300 total pages. Unlike other internet fax services that set an allotted number for incoming and outgoing pages, RapidFax combines the two to give their users more flexibility in how they spend their minutes. They also DO NOT charge a setup fee for their service. Faxes can only be sent to two email addresses which has not been a problem for me.
RapidFAX works as stated. For $9.95 month, I really don't think we could find any other company that can beat it. The RapidFAX Interface is pretty straight-forward and easy to use, even for non-techy guys like myself. I like the NO SET-UP requirement to begin sending faxes. I am going to give their voice services a shot in hopes to handle my office calls a little more efficiently. I am hoping that I will be as satisfied with voice as I am with the faxing. I will let you know!
