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.
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.
