Likelihood to Recommend

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.

konectar Virtual Engagement Platform

konectar has been a great tool to connect with HCP's during the pandemic time as we were not able to meet with them face to face. It was extremely important to use an application that is easy and compliant as well as cost effective. konectar VEP has served all the purpose. Great work!!

It is one of the best platforms and is really easy to use. konectar VEP has been an excellent tool for internal meetings and external meetings as well. Since it has automated interactions, it becomes less work for our team not to take notes. It also has the recording feature so we have all the information needed all the time.

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.

Alternatives Considered

8x8 Express

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.

konectar Virtual Engagement Platform

We evaluated several vendors who could provide a robust and compliant virtual engagement platform. konectar VEP impressed us with a lot of different features we needed. We wanted a robust, compliant, cost effective, easy to use application. There are no add ons or plugins for konectar. It works with a single click and provides all the necessary features.
