I switched from Jive to Alliance Phones. They are truly the best VOIP Phone System that I've had. They stand out from the rest with their real value for money and polite and prompt service. The online portal makes managing the phone system much faster and easier. All our drivers have the mobile app installed on their smartphones. It just makes things so much easier and simpler.

They advertise FREE unlimited calling to the US and Canada and FREE magicJack to magicJack international calling, which it's an absolute lie. I signed for five years service promotional fee, that was 99.99, when the bill came in CAN dollars, was $187.90 they said they where not using the banking rate exchange and they have to charge me the exchange that was based on their calculations. I tried to cancel but they said I only would be refunded 17.00can because penalties for the cancelation. So I didn't have a choice and I had to keep the service. A month later, all a the sudden I stop receiving phone calls, I tried to fix the problem from my MJ online account but didn't worked. I tried to keep using the service just making outgoing calls and every often the calls where interrupted by recordings reminding to check my account or simply interrupted my phone calls. I contacted customer service which they said they where unable to fix the problem and they where unable to tell me the reason why my account was in hold. It took me few weeks calling every day and trying to contact someone to help me, but they told me that they where not even in the American continent to attend my concern. They said that they where in a place which they where no allowed to tell me, but they said they will pass my report. Couple of weeks later the problem became obsessively annoying interrupting my outgoing phone calls. I was unable to find help for this problem, so I decided to become rude with these people and they transferred to a supposed responsible. I was on my only account while I was speaking with this woman and she said hold on in the phone and she just cancelled all applications, devices and services which I saw the changes instantly on line. She came back to me on the phone and she said that I violate the time allowed on my service. I said that I paid for the five years service and that was advertised as unlimited phone, she said that some where in the 56 pages agreement said that the services isn't unlimited phone calls passing certain period per day. So they took my 187.90 can, they tried to make an other charge for the cancellation which thanks to my bank blocked the charge, they cancelled all my apps, devices and blocked the number I was using to contact them. There's no agency or government service to report this company's scam. I would ever recommend to get this terrible service that may was the must expensive phone service I have ever paid.

I've been involved in every step of the process of replacing a myriad of phone systems that we maintain between about 18 sites. We wanted a unified solution for all our locations regardless of state lines and network capabilities. Cyclix has taken care of that in spades. We're operating multiple voip lines on 1mbps pipes over VPN tunnels and the quality of the audio is still there! Our old phone bill has already gone down enough to cover 2/3rds of what we pay for our new service and there are still multiple lines to cut over from the old vendor that would more than cover the cost of monthly operations. Support is readily available and dedicated to making sure problems get solved while you're on the phone, not during a callback when it gets escalated to a higher level technician. All tiers of support are pleasant and knowledgeable at their level of proficiency. I'm not quite sure the feature set would be capable enough for an enterprise grade operation but you'd probably be running your own in house system at that point anyway. For an SMB company, everything you'd need is available and running out of the gate. The only issues I have at the moment are with phone quality and training. The Polycoms we've received seem to have a higher than normal failure rate but we've received replacement devices promptly and they come preconfigured. Your mileage may vary, but it might be worth considering using a Cisco phone system to get a more stable desk set. The training program was recently designed and could use some work. I think once they get the kinks worked out, there could be a lot of benefit there, but it's not quite up to snuff yet. It's also worth noting that we haven't had a single service outage during our time with them. Overall I'm very pleased with our service and would definitely chose them again for our phone system.
