Agent solved issue with Lightning Fast Customer Service. Hardly any waiting on the phone for someone to respond. The Technical Team also sent a a service request to Sales to answer another question I had about an additional issue not related to Technical Support. It is easy to contact them and request assistance.

A great app with good features suitable for small, medium, and large companies. I personally use it for my small business, their service is very affordable and convenient for all of my needs. They gave me one month free trial and I will be paying $15. I think I’m extremely satisfied with their service within that price range.

Features are good and solid, I would like it better if mobile worked every time. It’s frustrating that sometimes it doesn’t allow me to login and says “webpage unavailable.” This doesn’t happen on desktop luckily. Best features are the texting and faxing–much simpler than having multiple apps for each thing.

good tool to work, especially for calls. In addition, it is a great tool for video conferences especially with a huge number of people. We use 8×8 for organizing meetings and for doing the business calls and this tool rarely gives us issues and if these arises the support is always open to support and help the customer. Thanks for this!

Great support, the agent that help me knew what he had to do found the problem and solved my issue. He also confirmed that the needed email was received successfully by the affected user, and he didn’t close the ticket until I confirmed him that I spoked with the affected user which confirmed as well that the issue was solved. Great communication as well. Keep up the good work.

Have used 8×8 for over a year, it is an inexpensive VOIP provider. The instructions are thorough and when I have needed support, they were quick and pleasant to deal with. No run arounds, and informative. Porting in was okay, even with a larger order, from multiple providers.
I would recommend them to others, ease of use, support staff and of course price.
