    The 8x8 X Series allows flexibility to use the company phone system whether you are physically in the office using a handset, or are working remotely using the app on your smartphone. We are able to deploy 8x8 X Series very quickly since there is no requirement for PBX hardware or telco lines since you just need to be connected to the internet. We can easily get new users on the 8x8 phone system immediately.

    Zoom

    In the new area of pandemic-era meetings online, I really like the opportunity that Zoom provides to have a meeting space. The audio and video quality is typically good, with problems usually being blamed on the bandwidth of the service provider. The recordings are great to be able to use once they have been processed. In fact, if there was one thing I would improve about recordings, it would be the amount of time it takes to render the video ready for output and sharing.

    Pros

    8x8 X Series

    • 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.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    • The ease of hosting & joining meetings with a simple URL.
    • The ability to screen-share and share control of screens seamlessly makes collaboration even better.
    • Participants limit in a zoom meeting is way better than other collaboration tools.
    • Ability to restrict unwanted users from joining the meeting even with the meeting password.
    Sameera Srivastava | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    8x8 X Series

    • App improvement - connectivity issues
    • Base level training - new employee handbook/training
    • Simplify steps on an overwhelming dashboard. Maybe the ability to set up quick links for functions we do often- to update VM is many, many steps.
    • Customer service when placing a ticket - we have had many issues with them not taking the time to understand our question/problem.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    • Sharing zoom complete information is not visible on the screen, and also a bit is confusing minimizing and maximizing.
    • Every time someone enters the chat, a chat box appears on my screen, and some features are missing from this version.
    • Automatic conference connection based on a schedule isn't an option, and neither is enhanced security measures.

    Most of the easy day-to-day questions are no longer even questions due to the ease of use and simplified experience on 8x8. Changing voicemail via the desk phone or mobile app could be simplified or match the ease of using the 8x8 desktop app.

    Zoom has been very good in terms of usability as I have rarely had issues joining the meetings on desktop and it has always provided me with a stable audio and video and it makes it very easy for me to get through any meetings without much problem. I have found that it helps create a very friendly environment with my team through the creation of conferences and moderated chat rooms.

    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.

    No problems with performance, Pages load as they should. I can't answer on the reports side as only a handful of our Admins ( call center ) currently use that side of the software. It does intergrate very well with Office for meetings and conferences. Sometimes there is a slight lag or static when users are talking, but we found this to be a cause of a users computer had not restarted in a while, Once the user restarts thier computer the problem is resolved, So this is not an issue with 8x8

    Zoom has among the best performance of any video conference platform, as I've mentioned several times. Besides that, their Chat platform works great, and their back end always runs smooth. It's unfortunate that reporting can now only be done by one month at a time, but nonetheless, it only takes a second to run any kind of Zoom report, whether it's an attendee report, Poll results, a user report, a list of meetings from the past month, etc.

    As I've written before, Zoom makes us feel like we matter and that we're a client rather than a customer. They want us to succeed and they put in the time to make sure that we do. I feel like they're more of a business partner rather than simply a vendor or supplier. They spent a lot of time onboarding with us, giving us demos, helping us get set up, and then giving us follow-up to be sure it's going well.

The questions he could not answer were answered within 24 hours via an email to the IT support staff here so we could share the answers with the rest of the group

    If you receive any pushback from higher ups, point to any of the various positive reviews like this one. Or show Zoom's excellent Gartner report, or articles describing Zoom's partnership with Sequoia capital. It's not difficult to show how Zoom is a trustworthy industry leader with best-in-class technology.

    Alternatives Considered

    8x8 X Series

    8x8 X Series had competitive pricing and we absorbed another environment that was already under contract. In an attempt to have a single unified ucaas we migrated to 8x8. Cisco UCM and 3CX were more involved when setting up but gave us the ability to do anything we wanted with our calls. We had more freedom and did not have forced obsolescence with our PC or wireless clients. 8x8 on the other hand was very easy to setup once we had our call routing and flow and requires us to constantly update.
    Daniel Bonilla | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    Zoom cannot be beaten for ubiquity - 100% of my clients and prospective clients are already familiar with Zoom. This is the #1 reason why I use Zoom. Additionally, Zoom integrates with AcuityScheduling, saving me a lot of time in creating meetings and adding them to the calendar. Zoom is disappointing in terms of video quality, interactivity features, and privacy. In cases where I need to use the recording of webinars for digital products, I will always use Crowdcast, and in cases where privacy is essential, I will use JitsiMeet.

    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.

    Because the Basic licenses are completely free, and because it's very easy to configure and install Zoom, and because anyone can join Zoom from a link without needing an account, scaling is a Breeze. There are absolutely no roadblocks. My company keeps adding more Zoom Pro license every week since it's so in demand. We were able to convert users from several different platforms onto Zoom with no trouble at all.

    Zoom is an all-around, robust, and equipped tool that serves a huge requirement for communicating and running business processes very effectively. The calendar integration is very helpful in notifying the team members [of] any meeting upcoming and is also apt for mobile use in special cases as well. The phone call feature is also very standout. Minimum bugs and ease of use make it the first choice for any company.

    Return on Investment

    8x8 X Series

    • 8x8 [X Series] has been a staple for our organization for years, while it has worked, it has become dated and requires a massive update.
    • The latest update took us offline for 72 hours. Despite adhering to the instructions given in the update email.
    • Mobile and desktop apps do not function properly. The "Helper Tool" does not work and is a nuisance.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zoom

    • It enables me to send and receive messages from my team members during video calls, handling online presentations.
    • With the ability to quickly stop, mute, and even receive notifications when someone enters or exits the meeting room, I'm never obligated to show up while making a call.
    • It is possible to record online meetings for future reference and more effective customer service. As we dealt with a lockdown, Zoom helped our business run smoothly.
