8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

Any business that has workers in multiple locations or workers who are based out for the office for significant periods of time will really benefit from the 8x8 cloud-based system. Your direct line follows you around, but because of the Virtual Attendant, office hours and out of hours can be configured so that you only receive calls when you're "at work."

This is great software for differentiating where phone traffic is coming from. Whether it's paid/organic search, you can see exactly where the calls are coming in from. I'd love to see them add text/SMS features in the future, but it does what it claims. I'd also like to see more CRM integrations, but not sure that other users share the same sentiment

Pros

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

  • Conference call feature is great. We have created multiple conference bridges, we even have one tied to our virtual attendant.
  • We like the flexibility of the auto attendant and being able to have more than one profile saved that we can change as needed
  • Having Virtual office was especially great when hurricane Irma came through last year and our office had no power, it allowed us to continue to operate from our cell phones without the customer realizing there was anything different.

  • Tracking phone calls first & foremost! Being able to have a running tally of the phone calls made and listening to the recorded calls throughout the month and providing that information back to our clients is vital!
  • Their UI is exceptionally easy to use & navigate. This is important when we have many clients running at the same time and we are able to always determine what report is for which client.
  • The ease of setting up a brand new client & their tracking phone number is fantastic! Saves a lot of time when it walks you through everything you need to know & do step by step.

Cons

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

  • At times call quality with callers outside the 8x8 system at times is poor.
  • Voicemail boxes are not very large, and can fill quickly.
  • A means to mark all received faxes at one time as read within Virtual Office would be nice.
Christopher Alcumbrack | TrustRadius Reviewer

CallRail

  • The integration with Hubspot is not as seemless as I would have liked. We had an issue where a person who was already in Hubspot called in, and their contact information was not matched to the caller ID correctly which created some duplicate entries. A little bit of a bummer, but from what I understand they may have fixed this. We had to stop using them for a little while because our outsourced sales team was more confused by adding CallRail, so we'll be re-implementing this once our new sales team is fully trained. Hopefully the record miss-match issue gets fixed.

We've had an excellent experience with 8x8 Virtual Office. We have downtime very rarely and the service provided by all reps is excellent. The little quirks that I've mentioned as cons are minor inconveniences but I prefer working like that than hosting our own PBX.

I have found both the use, and administration of 8x8 to be very straight forward. After a brief period of familiarization all of my users have found the use of the system quite simple. The system is scalable in some regards as it allows for simple use, or more broad usage of features. You can simply have a desk phone, and use the system like a simple phone. Or you can use the Virtual Office program and app to use all of the features offered.

The platform is easy to use and we really don't have any complaints with using it so far. The information is invaluable for clients that rely on phone calls to drive more business. Not much negative to say about it at this point. We're actually really happy with it so far and the cost is manageable.

In the time I have used 8x8 Virtual Office, the core system has been up and running almost flawlessly though we do have a slight performance degradation from time to time as is expected of cloud software. The one recurring issue for us is that the fax connection is not always functional for outbound messages. We usually have to retry three or four times to get the fax to connect reliably to the destination machine. Once connected, it's smooth sailing.

None of the features that are available slow down the application. The reports (even the ones with hundreds of records) complete very quickly and the web interface as well as the mobile application never struggle to load or complete a task. The analytics will sometimes take some time to reflect the online status of users but it is to be expected due to connection speeds.

Very easy to use. In this day of age, finding a company with a great product, competitive pricing and top ofthe line customer service is hard to do. We found it with 8x8 and look forward to using it for many years to come.We also will be happy to recommend it to anyone else who is looking for suggestions.

CallRail support normally gets back to us pretty quickly when we submit a ticket and they have a good knowledge base for common questions.I've heard mixed reviews from other local marketing agencies that use this tool, but overall in my experience, support has been knowledgeable and quick working through our problems.

This was already in place before I joined the organization but given that we're still satisfied with it, I would say that the implementation was a success across the board.

Alternatives Considered

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

If I had a choice to pick otherwise, I would. I came into the company when they already had 8x8 and it is such an issue. The fact that you have to have the VO AND the VCC open at the same time, llike why? I would definitely not choose them over quite a few companies.

Callrail has a very seamless and easy to use Dynamic Number Swap function. In other call tracking that we looked into the integration was either not as easy to use or required much more work to implement. Setting up CallRail has been so easy even our entry-level employees need very little training to master the platform.

We've had periods where our organization has grown a considerable amount and we have had no issues in scaling our communications with 8x8. The number of possible extensions that we can use is far more than we expect to go through in a very long time. The only complaint that I have is a very minor inconvenience for me where I have to download activation codes for each phone. I would prefer to have the phones automatically activated as soon as they are plugged in.

Return on Investment

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

  • We were able to use desk phones we already had minimizing the initial investment.
  • It allowed us to transition to remote work seamlessly when the need arose.
  • Users required less training because the features were similar to other commonly used phone systems.
Bret Miller | TrustRadius Reviewer

CallRail

  • CallRail has helped us follow up on quality leads, something we couldn't do effectively prior to using this product.
  • The reporting feature has helped us to generate reports that have helped us plan and increase conversion rates.
  • It helps us plan our budget effectively because we can easily see which campaigns are effective and should be targeted.
