In a "Need it Now" technological world, there is no room for poor customer service and unqualified representation. My company had many issues with FonAngle, mostly, the fact that anytime our Tech Support wanted to talk to FonAngle tech support, it was like we had just asked to meet with The Pope. We had to e-mail someone, every time, anytime we had an issue. Every time I picked up the phone, I received a run-around telling me that I had to e-mail my issue to a generic email and wait for a response. Who has time to wait? Who has a Tech Support number, that only directs you to submit an e-mail. I digress.. The main issue with FonAngle is their horrible customer service. When we tried to get better customer service, they actually told my company to look for better service elsewhere. So we did. And I must tell you, Jive.Com has been amazing.
The support has been very good. Our representative has been responsive and has kept me informed as to progress on the issue we had, which was something FonAngle had not encountered before. He arranged a time with me that was convenient to spend - only about 10 minutes total - to correct the problem on each of our devices. He went the extra mile and restored some data that normally we, as the client, may have been asked to do. He saved us time and more aggravation. In addition, I had a question re billing which he immediately forwarded to billing. The billing rep answered within minutes via email.
This review comes from a global operation with over 1000 employees and over 60 locations in the USA and Canada. We used Cyclix redundant SIP Trunk product which simplified our VoIP Enterprise Solution. We've managed VoIP phone systems since the early 2000's when they were first being introduced. We slowly transitioned from PRI/T1 technology to SIP with Cyclix over the years with a near flawless transition. Voice quality never suffered. As always with any transition we did have some hurdles or incompatibilities but the Cyclix support engineering staff helped resolve and even provide guidance to our integrator. I would highly recommend Cyclix to any Small to Medium sized business looking for SIP Trunk Solutions or Hosted solutions.
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.
