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."

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.
Robbie Mancl | TrustRadius Reviewer

CrazyCall

  • One-click dialing directly from the computer is definitely a strength.
  • Local numbers used in dialing to increase the number of connections is an asset.
  • The pricing is a plus. It is one of the most affordable calling tools on the market.
Adam Montgomery | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

  • The iPhone app is powerful, but clunky.
  • The technical support (which was absolutely amazing when we first signed up with 8x8) is terrible now. The same goes for their customer service (that is, if there is a problem that tech support can't fix or doesn't handle well, and then you call customer service to complain, they'll just pat you on the head and tell you to go on your way).
  • The web interface is difficult to use, both from a user standpoint and an administrator standpoint.
Andy Taylor | TrustRadius Reviewer

CrazyCall

  • Inbound call functionally is still limited and not something that my team utilizes.
  • The reporting features for the some of the lower pricing tiers are very limited.
  • Downloading reports from the cloud can be quite slow at times.

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.

The web interface is easy to navigate and the data that I need is only ever one or two clicks away. When running reports, I don't have to deal with convoluted filters or awkward logic implementations, it just works and it works well. If I had to fault it for something, I would say that the interface is not consistent all over the place; The account manager portal and the Virtual Office portal have two completely different styles.

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.

They are fully functioning and easily manageable, crucial to our company as we have dispatch and office administration and are a medical facility. If our phone lines go down, people could be impacted by it in a very negative way.

Alternatives Considered

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

We only did a web search for other companies and found this service to fit all our needs, especially being able to get a BAA to help our HIPPA and HITECH compliance. It was over three years ago so I do not recall what others we looked at, but we did a general web search.

CrazyCall integrated with our CRM better than the other competitors. The integration was seamless and offered exactly what we were looking for. Some of the other competitors that we were evaluating were not able to integrate with our CRM in the same manner. That is why we ended up going with CrazyCall

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)

  • When I am the only person covering the phone, I can get messages or calls anywhere and anytime and make sure that they are forwarded to the right person. This ensures that appointments are kept and employees don't waste time on appointments that get canceled.
  • When someone is out on leave, it is convenient to forward their calls to someone else to make sure customers get attention when needed.
  • Text capabilities allow our patients to contact us promptly for appointment cancellations. We are then able to fill those times with other patients who need to get in.
Renee Allard | TrustRadius Reviewer

CrazyCall

  • Our sales team is making more calls and the calls have improved in quality....this is leading to more customer interactions.
  • Our customer service has improved with the call recording. We are able to go back and listen to issues and customize our responses based on the recordings.
  • Managers are better able to identify sales members who are consistently meeting their call targets. This has improved our goal-setting and reward system.
