I have been an 8×8 customer for two years. I have been very happy with the quality and value of the service. I am paying far less than I did with Ring Central and the apps and quality of service are far superior in my opinion. The included virtual system setup is very easy to use, even if you are not very technically savvy.

I’ve been an 8×8 customer throughout two of my businesses since 2011. The service is priced very competitively and the virtual office tools allow seamless communications while frequently traveling.
Of late, I use the mobile app the most for iOS. I’ve been pleased with the performance.
An overall strong recommendation.

Enjoy the system. Can work from home and no one knows the difference. Love the fax system, paperless and can easily filter.
The voice mail system works great, can get the messages from my email. Easy to call back. The phones are very simple to use. Doesn’t take much time to set up the system once installed. the help desk is awesome

The 8×8 phone system has allowed our business to be flexible, and expand outside the walls of our office. We have remote workers in other countries that have the phones on their desk. And the app allows all workers the ability to login to their phones and answer calls remotely without having to be at the office.

I have used 8×8 now for 18 months. They offer exceptional quality and price. The features such as showing what lines are in use to the receptionist should be included in the monthly rate. Installation was as easy as plugging in the phones to a POE network. I have not had any service issues with them.

8×8 provided a helpful resource when my business was ready to upgrade from a pay as you go cell phone. I briefly tried RingCentral, but when it came to some of the security features I needed, they wanted to charge much more than 8×8. There’s a lot of features on 8×8 that I don’t need to use right now, but it’s great to know I have that flexibility in the future. Some of the settings get a little confusing, or redundant, but once it’s set up, the system needs little adjusting.
It’s great to have something that’s accessible through my mobile phone.

At first we were sceptical of switching from our old system w/ BellSouth, but it turned out to be a great decision!! We never miss a call and the system has only gone down on rare occasions that are generally weather releated. Have been very happy with the service we received and they took back an extra phone we were using with no questions asked. Would definitely recomment.
Overall the service is good…
Overall the service is good. I have been with 8×8 since 2004 starting with their residential service then moving over to business service. I had issues with the phone system but 8×8 sent me a new phone. It took me a while to install and program but once it was done it worked well. I use my phone to call overseas as well

Being a small business owner, I love that I can log onto the app if I have to step away from the office and still receive/make calls. My husband is the doctor and I’m the office manager, so when he has been sick in the past it’s awesome to be able to stay home and make calls to patients from the “office” phone.
Has been rock solid in terms of…
Has been rock solid in terms of reliability and connectivity. We’re a small team, and this platform has been flexible enough to meet all of our needs while not breaking the bank. Having the ability to route to the mobile app or the online application has been a godsent the few times our ISP has crapped out. Would highly recommend!
Very reliable, excellent call quality,…
Very reliable, excellent call quality, excellent mobile app. Great service when needed. Auto-attendant gives us a bigger presence. The mobile app allows us to go seamlessly on the road. Works fine with cell or wifi. Support prompt and helpful when needed (very rarely). Have used for over seven years now.
I have always been happy with the…
I have always been happy with the quality of customer service and products received from 8×8. Customer service has been especially helpful on the few occasions I have had to reach out for product or billing support. My questions and concerns have always been addressed in a clear and concise manner. I have been using their products for over 2 and am very happy so far!
We are a small organization from…
We are a small organization from Argentina, the service is very good but the price is too high for us. I’ve been using this service for more than 13 years and it have the solution for what we need. We talk and receive calls from the US as we were there. If the service were cheaper I will have more than one user, but for the moment we will continue that way.

We’ve used 8×8 for a bit over a year. The service is well priced and has been very reliable. We use the mobile app and the polycom 411. It provides everything we need in a phone system. We switched from a traditional landline to 8×8 and with the combination of the features available and the pricing we would never go back.
A superb system. The auto attendant…
A superb system. The auto attendant, the forwarding, the extensions. The quality of Service and calls. I like very much the mobile virtual office app. I can go anywhere and can still receive and make calls as if I were in my office. The only little issue I do not like about the mobile app is one cannot send or receive pictures through its SMS.
But I love 8×8!
