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.
Overall it was not too bad.
I signed up for this service because of the good reviews from voip review. I have a business with 8 phones. I was told that if i had a fast connection then i wouldn't have any problems. I invested $5000 in a new network when we moved offices and we have a 5MBps dedicated connection. It took a few weeks for our phone number to be ported. Customer service was friendly but never fixed problems even though we had many support tickets and they were escalated to top level support. The phones that they recommended were the GXP 2000's and they are of cheap quality. We often have echo's and occasionally get disconnected. We have to reset our phones frequently to avoid problems. The main complaint i have is the quality and reliability of calls. The quality of my cell phone calls is much better than my voip ones. I just tell people to call my cell to avoid being disconnected. Overall we saved money on the service but more than payed for it on our network and time lost. Use a reliable provider or standard service
