  • Using new software is frustrating at first, but worth the effort.
  • It's a little weird at first, but it saves you time and the frustration of dialing the wrong number.
  • If it doesn't sometimes work, simply press the update button until you see the phone number you want to answer.

If you get less than 4 phones you fall into the online only customer service. There were a couple of times that I could have used more assistance but figuring it out online was a bit of a hassle.

8x8 has a much lower cost that avaya for the same features. 8x8 is a bit more user friendly than some other larger well established brands. It still uses industry standards in terminology and call flows to for anyone with voip experience its a pain free switch to make over.

  • For all calls, you must complete at least the first question you are asked in the survey so that we know what type of connection.
  • You can leave a voice message, and a pre-recorded message will play on your answering machine or service when the call is saved.
  • If you get a signal compromised or problem you can hang up once you are in the software which makes it quick and easy.
