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.
Before Vitelity was purchased by either Onvoy or Intelliquent, who knows at this point, they were great; very responsive and helpful. However, now it seems whomever purchased them just left them to die on an island. LNP goes to voicemail all the time, support tickets are answered *maybe* within 48 hours. They claim to be understaffed, but then again, they've been saying that for about 6 months now. It would appear this is a sinking ship. We've since moved our services, but as long as you never need anything support-wise, Vitelity is a decent company. I feel bad for the account managers, as they have to take the brunt of the frustrations with limited ability to do anything. It just feels like pulling teeth just to get something simple done or even just get an acknowledgement that someone sees you exist.
After 10 emails asking for an update I finally have decided to stop using this company. They really just don't care. If it works it works but when it breaks they just sorta get it fixed when they can. Too many outages!!
