"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.
Had a conversation with customer service in trying to set it up for the first time. Quick and professional! I am a new customer, using the ghome services. so far the quality seems great!!
The service works great (without even considering the low price which is a bonus). It's easy to register and they allow you to bring your adapter BUT DON'T. Only do it if you know how to configure a SIP ATA. They will give you the username/password to configure your adapter but there are other settings that they don't mention like nat settings etc. So, if you don't know what you are doing just buy the thing from them. It's not worth saving $20 to configure it yourself. I have tried multiple adapters like the Linksys PAP2 and even my Asterisk box. It works with all of them given you know how to set it up. However, I decided to try their own adapter too just because!!! It's a Grandstream HT 286 box (but one of my friend got a Linksys 1001 so I guess they work with different vendors). It was $50 to get it from them which is not far from eBay. (You can probably get one from eBay for 25-30 but you have to know what you are doing The voice quality is very good and I have never had a disconnection. They also have an indicator (a gray/green light) on their website that shows if your device is online. Google transcribe your voicemails and set it to your email. This is pretty good as you are able to read your voicemails (as oppose to listening to them). Their features beat the hell out of vonage or phone.com(well to be fair they are using Google's features. Vonage and other guys can't compete with Google in their dreams).
