The customer service department is the worst. If you have a problem with your service good luck. We are a company who is hitting their busy time of the year and therefore we need more extensions to be active. I called on a Monday morning to have 2 extensions activated so our customers could call and we could make sales. I was told to email support and I was assured it would be taken care of that day. Well Monday passed, Tuesday passed and still nothing. Despite my follow up email on Tuesday. Into Wednesday, I called and explained it is very important we get these extensions active and could they just put me on hold and do it. They claimed they didn't get ANY of my emails. Keep in mind I emailed them from multiple accounts and from THEIR contact forms. I emailed AGAIN from the same accounts and on SUPPORT forms on their website. And surprise surprise it's the end of the day on Wednesday and nothing. Customer service is a joke. They do not care and now my company has gone almost the whole week without extensions we need.
IMPROCOM provides great and reliable service with perfect sound quality, price and customer service was very helpful. The technical support service was outstanding, they helped me with everything which I asked very quickly. I highly appreciate all the help, which was given to myself. The equipment system was great. Everything was heard very clearly throughout the call. The call did not drop even once, which is greatly appreciated, since these services have a tendency of doing that sometimes. I would be honored to give people referrals of you company. Thank you so much for all you help.
We started working with IDT in 2016. They tout serving over 32 billion minutes annually and 4 route divisions to choose from. The route divisions are irrelevant however, here I will explain why: The level of service/quality you *actually* receive depends on how greedy your Account Manager is, and the genie behind the curtain that changes up the routes to accommodate their desired margins. The end result of course is route instability and frequent calls to your support desk from angry customers reporting issues ranging from False Answer Service to calls not completing to legitimate destinations and wondering why they are paying for Platinum service only to receive problems typically associated with Silver-grade routes. With IDT we'd literally pass weeks at a time without issues, and suddenly a range of issues with many different destinations arise at the same time. We submit the ticket and the issue would eventually be resolved, but only after waiting > 24 hours for a response. In the IDT Express portal you are able to select which routing division, but in the end IDT simply does not honor your selection, and will route your traffic over the routes they choose behind the scene. It's really a pointless set up they offer. Go with Tata, NTT or BT if your customers' satisfaction is paramount.
