Where do I start - The sales representatives are taught well. They will manipulate you into thinking their product is great and will give you no issues, but that's far from the truth. I heard their sales representative present their product and while all seems to be on the leading edge of technology, it really isn't. The company takes no responsibility for any of their network issues, from outages or no service on your phones. Not only will your phones only work 50% of the time (if that) but when submitting a ticket for support, you have to go through their help desk first and getting a response from someone on their technical side is a never ending cat and mouse chase. That is, if you get someone to reply to you. Outages happen every three or so weeks, sometimes less, causing your phones to go out every so often. So if you like paying for terrible service from tech reps who sound like they hate their jobs and never actually having your phones or circuits work, iCore/Vonage is great for you. Please do yourself a favor and stay far away from this atrocious company.

Customer service completely SUCKS, both technical support and account management in response time and in solving the issues. The quickest I have had a "high priority" ticket fixed is 6 hours, and right now there is one that it has been 3 days and it is still not fixed. And I have had multiple techs working on the same ticket because I call in to get an update and they try and walk me through the same troubleshooting steps the tech before them had be do because they don't manage their ticket system well or the employees are just too lazy to enter in what they already had me try.<br /> The phone system they gave us (Polycom VX500) has had issue after issue rising after 6 months of use. One major issue happened that it was proven it was the phones before 1 year warranty expired, but they procrastinated getting new phone and then after the one year tried to give the excuse they weren't under warranty anymore. Horrid reviews of the phones were found online after this. Our network partially discounts at least once a week for at least 1 employee's workstation, and again they take forever to get it fixed.

Phones keep rebooting randomly during conversations. The app for Windows keeps crashing machines. They give us fixes that don't fix anything, or say that a fix is in testing (but it missed the last release cycle). These types of things should not be happening in a stable product. We are a simple business. No call center, just a receptionist up front that takes general calls and direct-dial to our people (so their volume isn't too high). Nothing fancy, no call queues. Voicemail transcription is OK, but they don't tell you up front that it is limited to 30 minutes/month before starting extra charges. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't do it with ShoreTel Cloud.

Newly installed ShoreTel System and we can't have ringtone differentiation between an outside call and an internal call! Really. Our 10 year old Avaya system could handle that. Maybe too much focus on cool cloud stuff and not enough on the basics. ShoreTel needs to get real and actually understand hoe their customers operate.
