The 8x8 app is great and very user friendly and straightforward. Team Members can adjust their own setting as needed.

JustCall.Io is well suited as a backbone phone system with many capabilities for small to medium-sized businesses and their sales teams. With its rich feature set, dependable functionality, and developer and integration-friendly architecture, it could be a great solution. The platform is less well suited for those companies that have a well established telephony solution and are only looking to take advantage of one or two of its features, such as SMS for instance. There are probably other solutions that provide the same functionality at a lower price point.

Cons
Discontinued Products
  • We are just starting to use the platform and using limited features at the moment and 8x8 is doing everything we need it to do.

  • There is no incoming call number recognition, the system sets an unknown number for the incoming call.
  • When there is no call save log, there is a loss of time as the user has to restart the device.
  • Incoming calls are lost due to excessive waiting so that they can be transferred to another user (sales support).

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.

It will be compared to the quality of the service and that it is accessible to medium or small companies. It is not a tool that requires greater complexities and its functionality is quite extensive. You will discover that the benefits are more than the problems that you may have.
