I tried to sign up for a test account a 14 trial day Ringio stated my company email wasn't accepted I'm guessing the portal they design is a system domain register. Owner answer the phone claiming my protonmail is encrtpy isn't something they couldn't use base on the app because the security protonmail uses. He was very judgmental he couldn't beleive it wasn't a corporate account I had to explained that my domain is available or maybe try my other company he burst out claim was the owner Samual the CEO and base on his vibes,I won't be a good fit for the company he trying play some psychic abilitlies and crsytal ball method what a crappy way to treat customer in less than 2 minutes saying they screen to see who they are working with and so forth was a waste of 5 minute phone called. He ask me what my company does he is plain old outdated version small shop the so called owner isn't making money he answer the phone. Pass this company up there over 1000 VOIP company know has to put up with bad service and stupid pre judgement. RINGIO is going out of business each time I submit the button for DEMO the technician cliam he was busy such a discrimation and this company soon will have the Biggest lawsuit over discrimination activity.
They are so far behind the mark of the industry that they do not have the normal features you would come to expect from any real VoIP company just don;t exist. The system is uber complicated and takes making setting on 3-4 pages where it would all be done on one page with any main stream provider. They routinely ignore email and voicemails regarding service issues and it is very rarte to be able to find out exactly what the real problem was. Often the problem seems to go away on it's own before they find a fix for it. The user is often made to feel the issue is on their side, even though test results show no problem on the user side. There have been chronic outages and service problems where calls could not be placed out, in or both. One recent service outage last several days. I would not recommend this poor provider to my dog let a lone a friend. Actually, my friend dog both use 8x8.
We moved from a traditional (non-voip) provider to 8x8 many years ago. I became accustomed to lousy support. After all, it seems to be the way of the world in these times. One day I just couldn't take it anymore. Our phones weren't working correctly, I couldn't get support on the phone and I started looking for a new provider. I was scared stiff. I had online sales customer service and 8 retail locations and no idea what rang where. Alliance held my hand through the transfer, put up with my state of panic and got everything working perfectly in short order. Fast forward years later and Alliance is my VOIP provider for 4 businesses. They provide service and phone numbers in Texas, New York (they even got me a 212 number) and Costa Rica. Yes, they got me local phone numbers in Jaco Costa Rica for RentRica. I recently ported my cell phone number to Alliance. They walked me through setting up a SIP app on my phone, helped me get SMS working and followed up to make sure everything was as it should be. I can only compare the phone service to 8x8 and it is night and day. But I can compare the support to every company I am forced to deal with every day. Alliance has better phone support than 99% of the companies I do business with and that is a very long list. To me, support after the sale is as important as the service provided.
We had previously tried VOIP with a large carrier. We consistently experienced dropped calls and it impacted our business. We decided to try Alliance. We could not have been more impressed. Their platform is amazing and has allowed all our offices in different locations to connect and feel like one office. The call quality is outstanding. Most importantly, Alliance’s customer service is exceptional. We are able to reach the Alliance team immediately and deal with the same great staff. With Alliance, there is no unending wait times and speaking to random individuals at a call centre. Their staff are informed and always have creative and resourceful suggestions to our requests and questions. We could not be more pleased to have transferred to Alliance and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a VOIP service provider. Thank you Alliance!
