I reached out for assistance on changing the outgoing message for the auto attendant. NOTHING I tried work. The rep slowly walked me through the process and rectified the problem. they were patient and explained each step that needed to be done so ideally the next time I can proceede without assistance.

I have been with 8×8 for approximately 7+ years as a customer and reseller/ installer agent. I can say the company has grown to new dimensions and continuously provides professional sales and service. Ultra reliable very few times if any at all downtime. Up and running 5 9’s – 99.999%. The Best !!!!

I’ve recently completed migrating our contact centre telephony system from RingCentral to 8×8. In terms of features and usability, 8×8 wins hands down. Very easy to use, intuitive and not clunky. It’s only been 2 months however I’m keen to see the long term reliability of the service as in the last 30 days there’s been a few issues such as calls dropping out, calls not being recorded or shown in the analytics module as well as outages. Aside from that though, I highly rate their system and the technology behind it. Kudos to the 8×8 team.

Switching to 8X8 has been easy and their soft phone app for both the PC and mobile phone have been a great feature added to our company. Customer service is very informative and knoweldge about their systems and hardware. I am very happy that we made the switch and us saving over $900 per month is also a plus!

My experience thus far is INCREDIBLE!! Compare to paying $24.95 per line with Comcast Business, plus their rediculous $18.45/month equipment fee and their $2 network investment fee, I am paying now just $39.90 flat for 3 Lines and AMAZING features! Just a cool service all the way around. THere is no question this is far better than any other phone service I know and I worked in the industry for approx 8 years!

We started using this instead of Skype and i was great to update we are a small virtual company but we needed to keep in touch with our clients and employees for jobs descriptions, it’s really easy to use and I love that I can have the number on the go, I install the app on my cell phone and even if im not on my desk I can still answer calls and text messages, also the call recording has been helpful to go over conversations and even for small claims can be used for defense, it will be great to be able to send and receive files and images this way I can simplify our communication to one tool

Our organization switched to 8×8 January 2019 and it has been great! The system is very user friendly and helpful. I can normally figure anything out just by searching but support is very professional and helpful whenever needed! The app is very handy as well as some of us work from home at times. We are able to receive ans make phone calls from 8×8 right from our cell phone.
Here’s what I have to say about 8×8….
Here’s what I have to say about 8×8. We’re all online all the time, paperless, and heavy cell phone users. x8x works perfectly for all of these. We’re a small business and we need competitive pricing also. The 8×8 is app always works unlike my years of using Nextiva with the app problems including Nextiva removing it completely only to reissue another broken app. I can transfer calls all over my company and jump into our secure file sharing within that same app. 8×8 has exceeded my expectations and I recommend them.
I have been a customer of 8×8 for over…
I have been a customer of 8×8 for over 10 years. I have not had any problems with their service or customer service. I use about 3 extensions for my business and the price is reasonable. I highly recommend their service.
Their customer service team is attentive to resolving any issue you have with their service on the first call.
The phone service is average at best…
The phone service is average at best. Their technology is lagging behind their competitors and their pricing is expensive for what they offer. Customer service is never helpful unless you want to add more features because most of their features are a la carte. They sneak in an annual auto renew to make it VERY expensive to cancel but will never tell you about it until after you cancel. Be very careful if you decide to go with 8×8. There are better services out there that include the features, at a lower price, that 8×8 offers individually.
Been with 8×8 for 4+ years. Usually…
Been with 8×8 for 4+ years. Usually works fine, but if there is an issue it takes too much time to track down the problems to fix them. I think it is a training issue. I spent 3 hours Monday to try to get my holiday greeting to work when I had set it up on the previous Friday. The fix caused a new problem that had to be resolved and took an hour to fix. Meanwhile I had phone calls routed directly to voice mail for hours without realizing it. They seem to have deteriorated somewhat in customer service.
Absolutely no problems with the…
Absolutely no problems with the equipment , installation, etc.. The support and sales teams were great. This was the least painful installation and best phone system ever. I would highly recommend looking into this product before you look at others. For what and how we use the system, there have been zero problems.

Love this company and its service. They support team is VERY responsive and easy to work with. Super helpful. The system is easy to understand. There are so many options that other systems can get extremely confusing (I’ve used several). This one makes it as simple as possible without losing features. And their training videos and articles are actually helpful. I can usually find the answers I need there.
My company did right on choosing this…
My company did right on choosing this provider for our UK and US communications needs. We are working to deploy this provider on all out other markets. Excellent quality, quick engagement and the support is amazing. We could get Desktop soft phone, Mobile APP and physical phone without extra charges as other providers. Any request from operations is easy deploy on the 8×8 platform which leave us impressed based on previous experience with other vendors.
I would recommend the 8×8 phone to…
I would recommend the 8×8 phone to anyone. It is very very user-friendly and at a very low cost! It serves all my needs with unlimited calls and texts! I had previously used the 8×8 phone for a long time at the company that I worked for. Everyone at that company was also very pleased with the 8×8 performance and funtionality.
