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.
Everything is OK while it works. The service was down 5 times this year. The last time it was out two business days in a row. Support does not exists during outages - nobody replies to email, pickup phone, etc. It is not a business solution. Would work as non-critical home office solution. This is not a serious player.
We switched over from Etherspeak in May of 2012. We are a Cisco re-seller that deals with everything but VOIP. I checked into fully managed VOIP and SIP setup with Charter, AT&T, etc. They all wanted big bucks for not alot of function. We did not always have the best experience with our previous SIP provider, and decided to give SIP one last try before going back to old PBX/POTS. We have had a very good experience with NexVortex so far. I can only speak regarding the features we use. Our shop is all Cisco Unified IP phones, with a Cisco UC540 phone system. I have NV setup as a SIP trunk directly into our Cisco UC540, over a dedicated SIP/voice T1. Since we are are a small company, we only use around 12 lines at a given time. We also have 2-3 remote users at a given time tunneled back to the main office, all using the same SIP phone system. I can tell you it all works perfectly without issue. Our biggest concern in switching to NexVortex was uptime/reliability. We did not have the best experience in the past with other SIP providers. I can tell you that is completely different with NexVortex. They are not perfect, and did go down one time in July. Fortunately that outage was only for 30 minutes, and we have not had a single other issue. This is far greater reliability than we have experienced with any other SIP provider. I love the online interface, and specifically the disaster recovery feature. It has saved us a couple times when our T1 went down, as it automatically sent calls to the old POTS lines. Their billing is accurate, and the rates are reasonable. The call quality is good, even using g729 codec which is what we use. It's one of the few VOIP companies we have found that actually delivers what they promise, at the rate they promised.
