I transferred approximately 20 accounts to ClarityTel. The process took several months, mainly because the telephone company I transferred from was very uncooperative. Throughout the transition, Derrick stayed on the case and remained completely responsive to my needs and the needs of my customers . This included after hours and weekend attention when necessary. In any introduction of a new technology to customers who are used to doing things a certain way, you're going to have questions and perhaps some misunderstandings. I've got to say that with the intense focus on this block of customers, service disruptions were kept to an absolute minimum. Several years have now passed since the cut over to ClarityTel. As proof of the usefulness of the software along with it's ease of use and functionality I am happy to report that practically all of the customers involved have remained on the service. ClarityTel offers a great service at a very fair price. I am very pleased that I chose to place my customers on their platform. Their systems are highly capable and extremely reliable. I couldn't ask for more.
We switched to ClarityTel after our then-provider went out of business. We're a call center in Buffalo, NY, with 50+ users and so far so good. The price is really one of the best we've seen in our years using different VoIP systems, and we have not yet experienced any drawbacks (it's been 4 months). I would recommend ClarityTel thus far.
Our needs weren't particularly easy. Two small companies at one location operating separately and answering the phones with 2 business names (with shared personnel), using an old phone system in a small office, in an industry that doesn't always welcome technology changes! Going to VOIP from Analog was the challenge of trying to make something newer - look more like the older system in order to minimize the technology pushback. We purchased Cisco SPA508G phones (not password protected), all with Attendant Sidecars (maybe not ideal since programming options can be more advanced), but they work well for us, were affordable, and we mostly use the basics anyway. We also have a warehouse speaker paging system. I'm not a phone guy - but decent with technology. We got by with only me doing the change out and with a little help from our contract IT guy to prioritize call quality and make sure our firewall ports were set correctly. FluentStream and more specifically Kaitlin, not only did an outstanding job of working with us to get where we needed to be - but they also cut our monthly bill by about 2/3. Are there cons... sure - very minor ones. I'm pretty sure they aren't (yet), a technology giant with unlimited funds - but - every need we had and that mattered - they met with a GREAT attitude and with AMERICAN customer service that was easy to understand. Actually, my view is that their setup options for he $ spent are VERY advanced. We tried two others before deciding - one of the LARGEST Voip companies out there, and one very small 2-3 person company. NO COMPARISON - even from the large company. They had no flexibility and hard-to-communicate with overseas people for support. Those we work with at FluentStream take time to listen and solve issues that are important to us. What is that worth? Every penny that we saved - and every $200. - $300. monthly that I feel we overpaid CenturyLink and 2 other companies over the last 6 years - for below average, often grouchy time-taking customer service. If you are like us, you will save thousands per year and for small businesses, and more importantly for large businesses, that can be significant. I really can't believe how much we are saving and how adaptable their system has been for us. We would definitely do this again and again and again!
I have been a FluentStream customer for a little over a year now and am completely 100% satisfied. The features we now have make our small business seem much larger to our customers and enables us to provide a much better service as well. The customer support has been outstanding and the questions I have had have been answered and explained and support has been available non-stop. Extremely cost efficient! I highly recommend!!
