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.
Been with s2s for over 2 years now and have had no problems. The software and features are all up-to-date, and the customer service has been great.
The Star2Star service works well enough. We experienced disjointed levels of service. Out local 3rd party representative charged us for products covered by Star2Star and used the excuse that we should have known. We actually stopped using Star2Star in the middle of a 60-month contract. We still paid for there service. We could not get out of paying any of the line items on our invoice: Invoice Processing Fee: $4.99 per month E911: $2.99 per month Maintenance: $37.90 per month Bandwith Optimization per line: $2.50 per month Watch out for their cancelation policy. You can cancel your account for the day your contract expires providing you do it 180 days before and no less than 60 days before your contract expires. The penalty for missing this is an auto-renewal of 12 more months. The "reward" for canceling your account for the day your contract expires is a $150.00 "Early Contract Termination Fee." Up to this moment, no one can tell me how to cancel the contract on time. I admit, that I "cut off my nose to spite my face" when I stopped using Star2Star in the middle of our contract. Again, note that I stopped using their service. I did not stop paying for it. After getting nowhere with their "You are covered for this repair/part under our maintenance agreement ($37.90 per month) but our dealer charged you" issue, I did not want to continue using a product from this company. Again, "Cutting off my nose...". I was ready to let "bygones be bygones" until I got hit with my $150.00 early termination fee. The whole experience seems like a ripoff to me. Buyers beware! Charles
