8x8 Express

For the price, having all of these features is amazing. If you have separate divisions and want to not have a ton of crossover with calls this is a great setup. It isn’t a great setup if you need only one phone since it doesn’t make sense since you won’t use most of the features.

As of now, we are using a Cisco IP phone and I think it is suited for [mid-size organizations] where they can manage IT dept and IT person this device is [one-time] setup but sometimes if anything happens it will very difficult to understand without IT background so [I] prefer for Mid size organization.

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.

I love 8x8. Having not used Polycom phones before, the hardest part was learning how to set up and use the actual phones. 8x8 makes it a seamless transition from using other service providers. Their customer service is excellent although if you get their cheapest plan you will only get online assistance.

With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing many businesses to adopt remote working policies, VoIP handsets have become more important than ever for firms wishing to remain in contact with their employees and clients. Fortunately, the 6800 series has a number of specific futures that are aimed at boosting productivity, wherever employees are based. These include the ability to handle multiple calls, fixed-function buttons that provide one-touch access to important features, and localized language support for international users. This is an ideal solution for this kind of scenario.

Return on Investment

8x8 Express

  • We are still learning all the nuances but we miss much fewer calls.
  • Transitioning calls to the appropriate person is much easier.
  • Ease of use.

  • I set up the desk for new hires in our group - it is super easy to plug in this phone and have them up and running.
  • Having the ability to pre-program speed dial numbers ensures that new hires are able to reach help without having to search for a number.
  • The ability to program ring tones is great, so if we are in the shared space meeting and we hear a phone ring, we know who's phone is ringing - the meeting can go on without everyone leaving to check.
