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.
I have been with VI for 10+ years and in that time they have provided me with excellent service at reasonable rates. Without a doubt the single thing which separates them from the rest is the people. Their staff is amazing, they do not outsource their technical support which is a big plus. They are friendly and always super knowledgeable. If there is a feature you want that does not exist you can recommend it and they actually give those requests serious consideration. I have seen several requests implemented over my years of service with them.
We have worked with a number of SIP providers and VoIP Innovations has been the most knowledgeable and easy to work with group of people that we have encountered. Recently we had a difficult situation that a client created for us by requesting a release of numbers, and then many months later wanting them back. Nick went above and beyond by literally spending hours with upstream carriers on our behalf in order to win-back those numbers. Considering their low cost for DID and Termination, I can hardly see it was worth his time. But what really mattered to Nick was doing the very best job to help me, regardless of what he would make from the service. This is seriously rare. Most vendors weigh what they will get from helping you and then provide you a level of service based upon your business impact to them. VoIP Innovations has my highest recommendation - truly exceptional.
