    Putting calls on park so they can be accessed anywhere in the offices. The system is so easy to learn for everyone involved. The customer service has been very good as well - someone does respond quickly when asked for help. I also like the fact that if I cannot understand the voicemail someone left, I can check my computer and hear it better.

    Calling abroad to international clients, while we use international number then response rate increases. Also, the client also prefers their country's number to respond. The pricing part is less appropriate. I believe they should be charged only for calling services. The name is also not suitable like what is Hippo means in the name. The person who uses this service is a Hippo?

    Pros

    Broadvoice

    • Broadvoice is excellent for customizing/tailoring to a business's specific needs.
    • Tech Support is easy to reach, and provides consistent help.
    • Onboarding new customers is very thorough and supportive. Changing phone systems is overwhelming and time-consuming. Broadvoice makes it as easy as possible with clear expectations and fantastic training.

    Cons

    Broadvoice

    • Process for provisioning a new telephone can be time consuming
    • Auto attendant text-to-voice options are limited and sound more robotic than some I've used
    • Bits of information about telephone extensions/people are stored in multiple locations. Often I miss updating one piece and have to dig around for it a 2nd time. Not always found in intuitive places. (maybe provide links to related info? )

      Broadvoice is an ideal value. It's not the best possible IP based phone system but it's easily one of the best options if cost is a factor. We got a capable and easy to use product while lowering our costs, a total win-win.

      It's the need of my team to perform well and it's increasing the possibility of getting more business. Clients also have more trust while responding when they saw their country's number rather than any other country's unknown number.

      Usability

      Broadvoice

      At first, it seemed "daunting" to use but that is very much the same with a lot of things that are new. Broadvoice supplies great Quick Sheets to main topics, such as Feature Codes, Flow Charts, User Guides, which are easy to read and follow. Once it is used often, it is easy to understand, follow, and make changes to fit your company

      Laura H. our Service Coordinator was exceptionally helpful when the inevitable hiccups occurred along the way. She calmly sought out solutions that kept the project moving so that we could meet our move-out/move-in deadlines. Also, their 24/7 Business Support line is staffed with knowledgeable people that answer my questions quickly and accurately.

      Their support is built around trying to prove why the customer (who is not getting the service promised at the price promised) is wrong. For that they pass with flying colors. For actually supporting the user though they are horrible. They come up with creative scenarios to overcharge the credit card while not giving a service.

      It was straightforward to set up. The phone was delivered prior to installation. The script and routing of calls were established prior to installation as well. The on-site technician installed each phone and offered training to anyone who asked. The main setup for hours, calls, and extensions was already set up via online meeting, making the phone install on-site a seamless experience.

      Alternatives Considered

      Broadvoice

      Other companies have used other systems, and there has always seemed to be a disconnect. The communication system can end up being a nightmare and truly ruin the day/week/month when issues arise. We have had the benefit of Broadvoice, so that has not been the case for us

      All of them. This seemed to be the best until they got us down.

      Return on Investment

      Broadvoice

      • We have pretty much cut our phone service bill in half compared to our previous provider.
      • The reliability of the system has reduced downtime to null.
      • Communication, communication, communication is a must for any organization. Broadvoice has met all our expectations plus. Well worth the investment.
