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.
I have been with VI for 10+ years and in that time they have provided me with excellent service at reasonable rates. Without a doubt the single thing which separates them from the rest is the people. Their staff is amazing, they do not outsource their technical support which is a big plus. They are friendly and always super knowledgeable. If there is a feature you want that does not exist you can recommend it and they actually give those requests serious consideration. I have seen several requests implemented over my years of service with them.
We have worked with a number of SIP providers and VoIP Innovations has been the most knowledgeable and easy to work with group of people that we have encountered. Recently we had a difficult situation that a client created for us by requesting a release of numbers, and then many months later wanting them back. Nick went above and beyond by literally spending hours with upstream carriers on our behalf in order to win-back those numbers. Considering their low cost for DID and Termination, I can hardly see it was worth his time. But what really mattered to Nick was doing the very best job to help me, regardless of what he would make from the service. This is seriously rare. Most vendors weigh what they will get from helping you and then provide you a level of service based upon your business impact to them. VoIP Innovations has my highest recommendation - truly exceptional.
