NetFortris (formerly Fonality)

For Insurance agencies, small practices, small call centers, anyone that need call forwarding or work with his number remotely while away from office. I can't list all the things I'm gaining as a Fonality customer. From the installation process, the configuration phase with the technicians, the account managers, every Fonality employee was professional and savvy. I was a contact center specialist for more than 10 years and I can tell you that I've never been this happy with a service! Never! Probably if you need a more complex solution and you have an enterprise level company having your own hardware gives you more control over your calls and how to manage them. But again, I think that Fonality can cover most scenarios without the need of a huge investment.

Zoom Phone

I think Zoom Phone falls a bit short as Call Center software, but overall, its the most reliable and best value of all the phone systems I've tried so far and I've tested, used and researched many. It really is easy to manage, and users have no trouble using it immediately with our G Suite SSO, so provisioning and rollout to new hires go so well. The only time we had trouble with our phones was during a rough week during March 2020 during the COVID panic.

Pros

NetFortris (formerly Fonality)

  • From an administrator's perspective, Fonality makes administering the company's phone system easy. Configuration menus and setup options are logically structured and easy to understand.
  • Technical support has been very good. Early on in our deployment, we had some nagging voice quality issues which were network related. Fonality provided exceptional support even though it was not technically their issue. It is important to know ahead of time how well your vendors work with other vendors for integrated services like a VOIP telephone system. Fonality support demonstrated their patience and perseverance in helping us resolve our issues.
  • Although we don't use remote office capabilities much, the ability to set up phones on the system in remote locations has been a significant help to several of our departments.

Cons

NetFortris (formerly Fonality)

  • The softphone options have not proven particularly reliable. The HUDweb application has some potential as far as a visual tool, but has just proven way too unreliable for everyday use. Would not recommend it for use. With that being said, a new softphone application is to be released on 12/16/16, so that may render use of HUDweb obsolete. Am hopeful the dedicated softphone application will prove worthy.
  • HUD Mobile is also less than an ideal solution. Not sure if the mobile OS is to blame for some of the disappointment, but having to run the mobile application in the foreground in order to receive calls is not really practical. Also, the design of the application is not very efficient as it's not obvious immediately how to get to the keypad and direct dialing an extension is not working for us. It does however make calls and can work, but it's more of a hassle than it's really worth. My remote sales team just uses their carrier minutes for calls.
  • The click to call feature while it has worked for us in the past, it has also caused issues with adding extra characters and logos in random areas of email messages, so our users have pretty much turned that feature off.

Zoom Phone

  • I've had some slowdown on calls.
  • Would like caller ID when someone is calling rather than just in my call history.
  • Ability to use the numpad to dial numbers. Have to click the numbers instead of typing them in.

We've already made a deep investment in the system hardware. We wouldn't be interested in another system at this point! And by the look of my colleagues faces when they see the HUD, I don't think we'd want to switch to a system that would limit us or take away any of these features! We may look at putting the server in the cloud, should internet outages prove to be such a common issue that it is preventing our other locations from functioning smoothly

Usability

Based on 8 answers
Overall excellent usability, with a few adjustments I feel this is the absolute best VoIP system out there. Just a clarification on the licences and limit the interface to reflect what licence we have. There should be a back or redunancy feature to Fonality Server, If there was a mistake we should be able to resort back to a usable state asap. Before implementing changes to the server, there should be a trial or sample of the changes to make sure it behaves as intended before effecting customer experience. It would be nice to have a demo version of Fonality interface so possible clients can truly evauluate the system. Because of the quality, it would have made it easier to convince the owners to make the transition sooner

Zoom Phone has a very sleek design which makes it very easy to operate and use both in the setting up of and interacting in a meeting space. That being said, certain features can seem a bit crowded while trying to screen share or display video which somewhat defeats the purpose of the application as compared to a standard conference call.

Support was great. Then all of a sudden I had to talk to my account rep that never contacted me. I had fonality for 4 years and now there is an account rep that is trying to charge me for support and services. Previously I could add phones as needed without a fee for support and activation.

Support have been great during the time for implementing Zoom Phones to our team of 50 people. There were times where they kept supporting us through links but more and more we had actual people getting back to us via emails so we are very happy overall. The product is so great, too.

Training was excellent, but most of what they had was webinars and not real world situation for our company's need. It would be better to have them remote in my local computer and test my system using inbound / outbound calls. This would have made it easier to learn and more relevant

Everything from the installation to the implementation has been great with Fonality, there is a lot of freedom to how the system will operate but the freedom comes at a cost of more technical experience to make sure it is configured correctly. The staff is very helpful can will make sure that the system is setup correctly and work perfectly.

Alternatives Considered

NetFortris (formerly Fonality)

We selected Fonality for ease of use and the HUD portal. One of the partners in the business has used Fonality in the past and had great confidence in it's success for this new endeavor. It has proven to be successful thus far and I hope to be able to update this review in a year's time with continued excellent service!

Zoom Phone

RingCentral and Zoom are very similar, and I am a fan of both. We ended up choosing Zoom because of how much we liked them for their Zoom Meetings product we've used for years now. It just always worked compared to WebEx, Gotomeeting, Fuze, Skype, Teams, etc. So reliability was the first choice. Talkdesk was not reliable for us when we used them briefly. We used a couple of other services for on-site PBX, hybrid cloud/hosted PBX, and tried Zendesk Talk. The on-site ones required on-site devices, and we wanted a cloud-based solution to help our remote workers and avoid complexities for IT. Verizon was strongly considered to just get everyone cell phones, but we didn't think our users would like having two cell phones and it didn't feel like a great experience for our office staff. Finally, we wanted Salesforce integration, and we would have had to upgrade our RingCentral service to do it. So I figured I might as well try out Zoom, which had a free trial and month-to-month contract. I haven't looked back since.

Return on Investment

NetFortris (formerly Fonality)

  • Due to the better call quality over our last provider, it's eliminated a lot of frustration of our customers and having to call them back from our cell phones. This has helped us keep our sanity.
  • The ability to pull up a customer record in our CRM and see customer call activity has been huge. I can see which customers call repeatedly and also use it to help track billable remote support.
  • Being able to see the status of a customer ticket AS they're calling, before we even answer the phone has been huge. I can have a customers ticket open by the time I answer the phone and be one step ahead. This has saved us a lot of time.

Zoom Phone

  • No need for physical phones. Saving us purchasing multiple sets.
  • Ability to be more flexible with work, whether at the office or from home.
  • Easier to keep track of and review voicemails rather than on a physical phone.
