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.

I run IT for a small team of 7 people. We have a quite heavy calling volume inbound and outbound and 8x8 handles this with ease. Highly recommend.

Phones keep rebooting randomly during conversations. The app for Windows keeps crashing machines. They give us fixes that don't fix anything, or say that a fix is in testing (but it missed the last release cycle). These types of things should not be happening in a stable product. We are a simple business. No call center, just a receptionist up front that takes general calls and direct-dial to our people (so their volume isn't too high). Nothing fancy, no call queues. Voicemail transcription is OK, but they don't tell you up front that it is limited to 30 minutes/month before starting extra charges. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't do it with ShoreTel Cloud.

Newly installed ShoreTel System and we can't have ringtone differentiation between an outside call and an internal call! Really. Our 10 year old Avaya system could handle that. Maybe too much focus on cool cloud stuff and not enough on the basics. ShoreTel needs to get real and actually understand hoe their customers operate.
