DO NOT SIGN UP for this service!! After the 30 day trial, they start charging and it is IMPOSSIBLE to cancel. You cannot cancel online or any other way. I talked to people and I chatted online but it was impossible. I cancelled my credit card and still it was charged to my new card. (My credit card company said that if they have the 3 digit code on the back, they can push it through.) Now I've filed a dispute with my credit card company and I hope that will work.
At $9.95 per month, I feel that RapidFax's individual and small business plan is a competitively priced internet fax service option. They offer a thirty day trial period which includes 300 total pages. Unlike other internet fax services that set an allotted number for incoming and outgoing pages, RapidFax combines the two to give their users more flexibility in how they spend their minutes. They also DO NOT charge a setup fee for their service. Faxes can only be sent to two email addresses which has not been a problem for me.
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.
