Great as a virtual attendant so as to support distributed teams, but not for a conference, video meetings, and screen shares yet.

Solgari Cloud Communications

Excellent for small and large companies. Great for sales staff who need to work remotely. No need for inside sales to be in the office all the time.

Pros

  • No issues purchasing the Cisco SPA-122 and SPA-8000 devices.
  • No issues setting up the Cisco SPA-122 and SPA-8000 devices.
  • Cheaper to go with 8x8 service and the Cisco SPA-122 or Cisco SPA-8000 devices than hosting GFI Faxmaker 14 yourself.
  • Great call quality
  • Love that I've been able to listen into sales calls
  • Love that I've been able to record all our sales calls
  • Love that I've been able to whisper to staff on their sales calls, helping to answer the clients questions whilst they are still on the call
  • Great cloud technology that supports sales staff working remotely

Cons

  • Their Desktop app doesn't always work correctly. Sometimes callers, cannot hear us and vice versa when the desktop app is used.
  • 3CX keypad could be more intuitive

Based on their poor customer service and lack of warranty replacement, I would not recommend or use 8x8.

Alternatives Considered

GFI Faxmaker/Mail Essentials 14 is more reliable and has better customer support than using the Cisco SPA-122 and Cisco SPA-8000 devices with 8x8, when you send out 200-500 faxes daily. 8x8 costs significantly less than GFI Faxmaker/Mail Essentials 14
Solgari is way better than Skype or Google hangouts. I love the simplicity of it's usage and how easy the sales team can listen into and records calls.

Return on Investment

  • It's been great. No headache at all.
  • Kept our costs low
  • Accelerate our revenue as the software is great for coaching new hires and sales staff
