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

This is the first time I have implemented a room video conferencing solution that didn't feel like torture. Right away from the unboxing of the equipment and the clear instructions I was satisfied. The full Teams Room kit had multiple options for cabling and detailed configuration options. It immediately connected to our Office 365 environment and we were live very quickly. We had one hiccup with the pass through on the Tap system but there was a firmware update available already that resolved it immediately.

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.

The Rally units are a significant improvement on the Dolby units, providing a more capable interface with better screen sharing capabilities. The units are significantly cheaper than the Cisco units, however they do not offer the remote management capabilities of the Cisco units.
