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.

Zoom Events

Zoom Events is perfect for meetings where you need to separate the speakers from the attendees. Of course, Zoom Events is not perfect, but I do not know a better [software] system. If it's possible, [I] recommend some improvement in presentation [management]. If you have, for example, a buffer to hold and store presentations before the meeting begins, [you’re going] to need less broadband to show your slides.

8x8 Express 5.5

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.

Zoom Events

[In my opinion,] Zoom [Events] is more stable, more flexible, and more friendly than these [other] products.
