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.
Signed up with this guys since I liked their UI and it was the easier to set up. Unfortunately they started messing with my billing in the first 60days. I got charged double and when I complained they started over charging me. For a $22 a month service I was being charged $26. Support sucks. Sometimes a question is answered in 48 hours or not at all. Poor English too. Obviously these are some guys in who knows where working on this part time. Too bad they could no be serious about it, they had so much potential. I disputed with my credit card since they refuse to credit for their wrong-doings.
Switched over from Grasshopper. Vonjour was much easier to use, which was a lot different from Grasshopper, which we found to be hard and buggy. Their customer support was good. They gave us a professional voice recording for free, which Grasshopper charged us $30 for. All in all, I was pretty happy.
