8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

8x8 [X Series] has consistently been a good option for internal calls, however, with daily dropped calls through our support line and constant needs for closing and restarting the application we've become frustrated as an organization. We are cautiously optimistic that the latest update will resolve our struggles. In the event that we continue to utilize 8x8 [X Series] for our VCC and soft-phone option moving forward and see what we've come to expect, we will likely pursue another solution.

Pros

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

  • We love the conference calling since many users are working from home.
  • The fact that we can reprogram it on the fly without having 8x8 do it is a big plus.
  • Being able to take the phones with us using the app on our cell phones is a bonus.

Ooma Office

  • Ease of IVR customization: Allows my business to adapt quickly to an ever-changing business economy
  • Plug and Play application: I was up and running within minutes of opening the box with the equipment in it!
  • Find Me, Follow Me for remote access: No matter where I go, I can bring the office with me.
  • Simple, Straightforward Billing: I recognized savings from day 1; my monthly invoice stays the same every month!
Wendy White | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

  • Customer support needs some serious changes. The inability to email a ticket in is extremely frustrating. 60% of the time support technicians are quick to blame the customers environment for issues without adequate troubleshooting or review from the engineering team.
  • Updates to the VoIP client need to be QA'd better. Making an update available that breaks features such as call forwarding, warm transfers and parking calls in unacceptable.
  • Maintenances on 8x8 infrastructure needs to be done off hours or on weekends. Pushing an update mid day and causing an outage for either desk phones or the 8x8 app is unacceptable. We had several instances this quarter where one or the other would stop working only to have it resolve on its own 2 hours later.
  • 8x8 mobile app has call echo more than 50% of the time. This occurs whether or not we are on wifi.
Daniel Bonilla | TrustRadius Reviewer

Ooma Office

  • Cell phone app could be a little easier to use.
  • Ooma Desktop needs some tweaking to make it more user friendly.
  • I would like my 800 number to be assigned to my personal mailbox vs. having to have its own extension.

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.

It's really easy to use. You don't have to be technical at all to figure it out, you just have to be able to read and follow directions otherwise you will not set the system up properly and you'll need to call support. The system has so many checks and balances it's near impossible to screw it up.

Their usability is a perfect fit for a small business. We can offer the same features a large company offer their customer at a much more affordable price. The ease of use of the system make it quick to set up and train staff with little time required.

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.

I had very good interactions with the general support staff, whether it was over the phone or using the support portal. They are very responsive and do their very best to answer my questions to my satisfaction. My experience with follow-up by our sales representative has been below expectations, especially when it came to modifying our account.

Ooma Office support is always available. I've never been on the phone with them for longer than 5 minutes. They are knowledgable, have great active listening skills, are able to make recommendations on how to make Ooma Office work even better for you, and wait times to speak with an agent are reasonable and typically less than 1 minute.

Alternatives Considered

8x8 X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)

The global availability of 8x8 [X Series (Formerly Virtual Office)] was critical to our company wide adoption, ensuring Kaseya can use the platform regardless of geography and with no call degradation or issues. Historically we have found other providers with global exposure have their systems hosted in the US or EMEA exclusively leading to poor telephone quality in the APAC region.

We went over to Ooma [Office] after having had Intermedia for several years. Intermedia was good, but they were due for an update on many of their systems, which they did after we left. With Ooma [Office], we have our hold music and other basic, easy to use options that fit well for our small business.

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)

  • Mobility very helpful in dealing with the pandemic.
  • We don't measure ROI, but up front costs are much less than traditional pbx.
  • Not a true SaaS solution - you can buy more licenses, but you can't reduce licenses during contract period. Very disappointing.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Ooma Office

  • System made it one-stop shopping for fax lines and phones numbers and equipment which was convenient.
  • It was a shock to see that $39.98 of service manages to result in about $18 of additional “fees” every month. Makes the service significantly less of a bargain than is advertised.
