Fonality service and features are hard to match by any competitor in it's field and price range. The service is very reliable IF your network and internet connection is good. If it's not - it is your responsibility to fix it, as they will provide you with limited network support (it's not their responsibility to fix your network after-all). When all is set and done - the system performs amazing for the price you pay. Totally worth the bang for the buck.If your internet/network is poor - your Fonality experience (and any VoIP experience) will also be poor.Most folks that complain about the call quality don't understand/realize the network's importance, and role it plays in their phone calls.HUD it self is amazing! Nobody else provides a replacement that I've been able to find (there are some that are close like SwitchVox and iSymphony, but no cigar!).
Used Fonality for about 18 months…
We used Fonality for about 18 months and found it extremely unreliable. Calls were frequently dropped and call quality was poor. Our shortest customer service hold time was 25 minutes and we had calls of over 3 hours trying to resolve issues. When we cancelled the account, Finality had extremely dubious billing practices; effectively continuing to charge us for services not delivered. This system is not viable for use in a business environment.
Getting started was very easy. The sales rep, Brian Flood, walked me through the phone styles and features needed to run my office. Nash from the install dept was really patient and got everything up and running. Would definitely recommend Fonality.
Great support and quality
From the moment I bought the phones to now I have had nothing but a pleasant experience. Even when things have not worked the way I want I call customer support and they walk me through it.
Founded in 2004, Plano, Texas-based Fonality is a pioneer in VoIP business communications. They offer small and medium sized businesses the same features normally associated with Fortune 500 companies. They offer cloud-based and hybrid-hosted solutions at a fraction of the cost of legacy PBX systems. They market to growing small and medium sized businesses, emphasizing how much time and money users will save compared to older, legacy systems.
They recently celebrated their contract with Airline Wifi provider GoGo Inc. by having a paper plane contest for all their employees.
Most Popular Plan – Fonality Hosted PBX:
Fonality offers several plans in their Hosted and Hybrid Hosted PBX. In a hosted solution, Fonality hosts the PBX within their own data center. This is the more popular of the two solutions, as the costs associated with installing, maintaining, and upgrading equipment are moot (due to the absence of on-site equipment). Fonality enterprise call solutions are geared towards small-to-medium businesses, not concerned with usage, and include unlimited calling to the US & Canada (check long distance rates). The monthly price for each extension is $29.99, with promotional deals that leased IP phones for users if desired, in exchange for contract agreements.
Both Plans offer these free features: Advanced Call Hunting, Auto Attendant, Call Recording, Call Rules, Call Transfer, Intercom, Desktop Integration, Dial-By-Name Directory, Paperless Fax, Enhanced Voice Mail, Find Me/Follow Me, Holiday/Custom Scheduling, Intercom, Music, Remote Access, Speed Dial, Virtual Extensions, Web Portal
Fonality HUD: The flagship benefit to subscribing with Fonality. Fonality’s HUD (Heads Up Display) is an intuitive way to take the office with you, streamline business communications to one central location. As a Unified Communications solution, Fonality’s Heads Up Display stands alone in delivering a smart interface that can increase productivity and organization significantly – via unprecedented presence options and more. New updates are constantly being made, and with the interface finding a home on the web, users will always open up to the latest and greatest version of the client. HUD Mobile equips and empowers the mobile workforce with cloud-based VoIP communications and contact center capabilities in a single-view, secure, easy to utilize interface via Apple’s iOS or Android platform.
Fonality Screen Share: Fonality Screen Share is fully integrated with the Fonality phone system, as well as the HUD, and Fonality Web Client. Users may launch Fonality Screen Share from the dashboard, and begin to share and interact on the go, recording audio if desired through integration with their Fonality phone system. Employee productivity and mobility are also improved through the new feature, allowing businesses to stay connected and able to collaborate at an advanced level.
