Our company got 8X8 and had trouble from the get go to set it up. I asked for help and even offered to pay someone to come out and set it up but was told they don't do that and I could watch some videos or look at their website for help. About 5 months later of never using the service and paying for it, the owner of the company passed away with Covid. I called and asked to cancel the service as we were deciding whether or not the company would continue. They said the only way to cancel is to pay the entire 2 year contract in full. Just a terrible customer service experience and a no very understanding or compassionate business. Think twice before signing up for their service!
The worst experience ever. I would put 0 stars if I could. It started off as a great partnership, but recently became a nightmare. Firstly - our call log history disappeared and it took them 4 DAYS to fix that, in the meanwhile we couldn’t even see the calls we might have missed during that time. Support was just terrible - unresponsive, unprofessional with a terrible English. They finally managed to fix that and I was almost certain to switch to another company, but they promised me that it is the last time something like this happens. Fast forward to today - we have been unable to send out any texts for a majority of our extensions since Thursday last week. It is Tuesday today and the issue is still there — even though they told me two or three times that it was fixed. As I am writing this review I have been listening to their TERRIBLE on hold melody for 39 minutes while they are supposedly transferring me to “a senior tech” — whatever it means. We are now in the sixth day of waiting, yesterday lost a $1500+ of revenue because of this and who know how much more we are going to lose because of this terrible company. We will be porting out our numbers and leaving 8x8 for good as soon as humanly possible and I will probably be putting a case together with my attorney to sue them for lost profits. My advise - never work with this company and if you are working with them now - run without looking back.
Don't be fooled by the 5 star reviews, TierZero is about getting you locked into a 3 year contract. They will charge you the full amount for 2 years no matter what happens and then 50% of the third year. If you need reliable internet, look elsewhere. After a year of subpar and slow internet, I finally just gave up and paid for 2 years of service I will not use to go with someone else. They were completely unwilling to work with me on a settlement at cancellation. They even admitted their service could not compete with what others were offering me and still was unwilling to work with me at all. Simply put, this is the worse of the worse and avoid them at all costs.
We have been operating an online retail business for several years and have recently opened a physical retail store and a separate warehouse for wholesale order fulfillment as well. We really wanted to move into a VoIP system and connect all the locations. We tried several companies with minimal success until we were referred to Tierzero. The line sound quality is truly superior and much better than what we were getting from the other providers we tried. More importantly the hands on customer service we received was really outstanding. There were some initial problems that were quickly resolved and each time we called in for assistance, the level of professionalism and quick resolutions to our issues was something we had not experienced before. We are very pleased with Tierzero and would highly recommend them.
