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.

Telnyx is well suited for general phone number provisioning as they have a large pool to choose from. There is certainly room to grow with fax troubleshooting.

Pros

8x8 Express

  • Being able to forward calls to my cell phone when I am out of office.
  • So much functionality. So many options.
  • One set price instead of a bunch of add-on fees.

  • Price Matters for the flourishing organization like us. Telnyx [is] affordable to us.
  • Telnyx is very generous in terms of providing regular updates through webinar , free credits, real time support . One most important is that they are not in hurry of closing the account because of minus balance.
  • Telnyx Portal is pretty easy to navigate and manage the customized settings.
  • Among other giant SIP providers I found Telnyx with very modern and humble customer approach.

Cons

8x8 Express

  • Setup is a pain.
  • Transferring numbers take a long time.

  • Number testing: Currently I need to call our fax numbers manually to confirm fax tones. It would be useful to test numbers in bulk from the portal.
  • Troubleshooting: Currently, samples are needed for each fax transmission when there are issues. And those samples need to be within 24-48 hours. It would be useful if Telnyx could do a health check out proactively to gather information on high failure counts prior to customer reports.
  • Transparency with system issues: We've run into scenarios where we wanted information on system-wide fax failures, but when the issues were resolved we didn't get root cause analysis.

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 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.

Easy of use and better prices. Outstanding customer service. Variety of services in telecommunication needs. Easy use of interface even for not experienced users. Migration of SIP numbers is easier. Reporting is very easy to use and customizable for our specific needs, so we can keep track of costs in an easy way

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.

Telynx

  • Due to easy SIP truncation the cost of customer approach has become very convenient internationally. We got a so much scaling to play on large customer base. And large base makes sense of large positive ROI.
