It is used across our entire global organization from Corp Offices, Warehouses and most recently added to our Retail Locations.
  • Prompt support.
  • Speed to add users.
  • Cheap price.
  • Auto attendant design.
  • New location setup.
  • Standardization of professional services implementations.
  • Speed to resolve issues with carriers or provide alternate solution.
  • Ability to cancel unassigned services.
  • No way to do mass uploads.
  • There are limitations on the size and scope of the auto attendant so it is not recommended for companies who have more than 3 menu options.
  • Testing of functionality and keeping data clean for management does not exist (I have spent 100's of hours cleaning up professional services).
  • Great for corporate environments with high bandwidth locations, not so great on slow bandwidth (T1/DSL).
  • Fuze Portal does not allow deleting of multiple menu's, call flows, schedules, or ring groups so it is labor intensive to manage.
  • A lot of data can be extrapolated from Discover, but takes work learning how to use it.

We use it along with our customer processing and support team to answer every segmented queries as well as sending out personalized messaging content to every user we have ever reached out to . The calling feature is something which we have also enabled for our internal communications because of its seamless and easier intergrations
  • Voice calling with anyone registered in the directory
  • Video calling with anyone registered in the directory
  • Messaging with anyone in and out of the registered directory
  • Insights about the entire workflow and the services offered for
  • The voice calling application is definitely not the best when it comes to selecting various user enhanced options and connectivity
  • The video calling feature can be equipped with modern day features from competitors like google voice , viber
  • The messaging needs to have seamless automation integration options for better and enhanced usage
Fuze is best suited for internal communication sas it is perfectly synchronized for moderate scale communication channels and offering the features of exclusiveness. It definitely cannot be seen as a great alternative for replacing the modern day customer support chat bot and voice calling features offered by other peers in the industry

Fuze is being used by the whole organization. After we merged with WeddingWire we got stuck using it because it was cheaper. It addresses the use of a phone system for contact center users and regular users. It gave our sales team SMS capability so they can text sales leads and current customers.
  • UcaaS.
  • Browser based app ability.
  • Salesforce integration is horrible.
  • Their support team is lackluster.
  • The CSMs and account managers aren't knowledgeable about phone systems.
  • Fuze is NOT a contact center system. They need to merge with somebody like Serenova.
There are other systems in the industry like inContact or NVM that are the Cadillac while Fuze is that old beat up Ford Pinto. There are so many contact center capabilities that are missing with Fuze. Now I see why Fuze is the joke of the industry among my peers. They don't listen to the customer for product ideas or enhancements. If you need a system that can work with Salesforce then look elsewhere.

We selected Fuze to replace our old telecom infrastructure with their hosted Cloud VoIP solution for all our North America locations. The Fuze service was used in parallel with Polycom handsets, softphones, and mobile app. We also integrated Fuze calling with our implementation. We did not use the Fuze IM feature and continued to use MS Teams for collaboration.
  • Fuze integrated nicely with Salesforce allowing call activity to be easily logged into SFDC.
  • Fuze call reporting provided valuable insight into call activity and the history of individuals.
  • The Fuze softphone UI was clear and simple.
  • We left Fuze because they could not integrate with MS Teams as a direct routing partner.
  • Overall the monthly cost for the licenses and variable per minute dialing costs were too high.
  • IT administration was a bit confusing because of all the Admin consoles used for different administration tasks.
Fuze is a great solution with quite reliable voice quality when used with QoS. Fuze is a solid replacement for an old landline phone system with 200-500 users. As a direct routing partner for MS Teams Fuze was too expensive. I hope they are able to adjust their pricing model.

Fuze was used in our organization to quickly allow us to call using our landline and our computer. It was also used to check voicemail and keep recordings of our conversations.
  • Call recording.
  • Voicemail transcription.
  • Click to call.
  • Click to call was not always working.
  • Transcription was not always correct.
I think the best scenario is for a company using a VoIP phone system that wants transcription and click-to-call opportunities to help their sales teams quickly call opportunities. Maybe less for a small company that has a few employees. If a company is using software calling systems that don't require a physical phone it may not be something that works as well.

It is being used in our corporate office, a satellite office, and a work from home office. We selected it to replace an outdated Centrex system that we did not have the ability to maintain or support. One unanticipated benefit was that when we were shut down during Covid employees could take their phones home and use them as if they were in the office.
  • Voice (call) quality
  • Network reliability
  • Communication of any network issues/outages
  • Capabilities way beyond our needs
  • Getting support, when necessary, can be challenging especially for a lay person
  • [The] life cycle of phones seems relatively short and once they are EOL they are no longer supported and customers have to replace them
  • Billing issues can be difficult to resolve
  • There does not seem to be a single point of contact/relationship manager any more
Fuze has way more capability than we need for our small office so it might be best suited for large installations, call centers, and complex environments. Our office is small and our needs [are] minimal, so when we need support we are challenged to understand the support person due to our lack of technical sophistication. We sometimes feel like we should switch to a solution more geared for consumers or SOHO. Nevertheless, Fuze provides reliable service at [a] reasonable cost that meets our needs, and because support is rarely needed we are happy with them most of the time, i.e. when support isn't needed.

We use Fuze company-wide. Desk phones, mobile app, desktop app, and Outlook add-in are all in use by various people. What parts of Fuze are used depends largely on the person's role in the organization. We needed a modern (cloud) UCaaS solution and Fuze does a great job of unifying voice, messaging, and meetings into one single platform.
  • Voice quality.
  • Mobile app.
  • Meetings - Simple, yet feature-rich interface.
  • Desktop application stability and compatibility with certain hardware.
  • Better installation - Per-user and per-computer installs sometimes compete with one another and/or upgrades fail to install.
  • [The] desktop app is not best for touchscreen-enabled devices due to lack of ability to scroll through messages using a finger or stylus.
Suited best for an enterprise. Less appropriate for small businesses and/or businesses where messages are required to be retained/archived (for compliance).

Currently, we use Fuze as our UCaaS system for the entire company. We currently operate out of about 35 locations across the country including offices in Canada. We are about to roll out the CCaaS product for one division to help with dispatch operations. We also use it as it integrates well with Microsoft TEAMS.
  • Easy to manage portal for system and users.
  • Support tickets are easy to submit.
  • Fuze Community Center is a wealth of information.
  • Support response though helpful, could be quicker. Think twice when setting the priority of a ticket.
  • Sometimes seems to be a disconnect between sales and implementation.
I find Fuze meets all my UC needs. If there are any issues, it is typically on the user's end. If it is call quality, that is typically on the quality of the supporting ISP connectivity itself.

Fuze is our primary VoIP platform and is used across our business in 3 main countries: the UK, USA, and Australia. It provides its service for our sales teams that are calling worldwide and our internal teams that do so for commercial and internal collaboration purposes. Fuze solves the inherent need for sales communication that is simple to use and consistent in nature whilst also providing value-add collaboration to our back-office functions.
  • Meetings and features within meetings.
  • Clean and modern user interface.
  • Good reporting visuals.
  • Bandwidth allocation for calling services.
  • Coverage across Asia-Pac regions.
  • Admin platform navigation.
Fuze has generally adapted well to our business needs and converted into the WFH environment during the global pandemic, especially being useful with inbuilt meeting and collaboration features. Over time, we learned internally that some of our users with non-business-level infrastructure could not use Fuze to its full capabilities. We discovered that though feature-rich, it wasn't optimized for certain connections. Fuze still retains great calling and communication functionality, though [it] could be improved for the above user type and for its back-end admin configuration portal.

[Fuze is being used] across the whole organization, mainly in sales as the back office tends to be using Fuze more often now. It provides a platform for all of our sales staff to communicate effectively with candidates and clients across the business. [Fuze] also allows the use of meetings and instant messaging. We utilize call monitoring for effective coaching when managers want to do this with new starters in the company.
  • Customer Service.
  • Listens to customers for new ideas.
  • Ability to call monitor.
  • Portal could be more intuitive and easier to use.
  • It's cumbersome to install files on the Fuze desktop.
Fuze provides a great platform for a large number of users to communicate effectively with candidates and clients. It also provides good meeting functionality and the ability for managers to report call times and usage is a very helpful tool, particularly in sales. The Hub is becoming more intuitive and hopefully, the portal will follow in the future.

Fuse is used as our primary telephony company. We mostly use it for on-site phones and our users also use the mobile app, also a small contact center.
  • Getting involved when an issue is critical and they have liability.
  • Selling product features.
  • Believing that they have a superior product than the competition.
  • They make you sign orders with extended terms every time you get new lines (beware).
  • Unless you tell them multiple times, support will not be from your own country.
  • Their app, even on great wifi, has poor quality.
  • The phones will have random issues that need to be addressed daily.
  • The portal for customers is hard to navigate or implement changes.
  • The billing is confusing, almost purposefully confusing (in my opinion).
  • Set up and implementation is abysmal.
  • You will have issues if any of your extensions have the same last four digits as your DIDs.
Fuze might be a good fit for a company looking for teleconferencing (We don't have that service) but [I feel that] their telephony service lacks any stability, ease of use, or innovation. Their contact center tech is almost nonfunctional compared to the competition.

Fuze is used for quick communications through the message feature and calling anyone with ease (no need to look up or memorize phone numbers!!). You can search previous conversations, send pictures/screenshots, or share screens in real-time. You can also see if a colleague is available at a glance.
  • Easy to make contact with colleagues.
  • Searching instant messages.
  • Sharing screens.
  • Can not export call list.
  • Can not export contacts.
  • Does not let you know if someone has the app (available for instant messages).
While working from home during COVID Fuze was great. It was an easy way to stay in contact with coworkers. You could see who was available, call using the speaker on your computer, or message. I have used other messaging software before that would not let you send pictures or share screens and it is very limiting. With Fuze, you have those options and it makes it so much easier when working from home and trying to carry on with the same productivity as working in the office.

Organization level cloud communication / messaging / conference / meetings. Fuze has a superior quality audio and video platform which makes it much easier for a continuous undisturbed meeting session. Messages are also relayed to the team members in real-time like WhatsApp. Fuze is very user-friendly and has One Unified Platform for All Your Communications and Collaborations within the organization.
  • Team members are all well connected via Fuze calling, chatting, meeting, sharing content, and managing the meetings effectively.
  • Fuze is secured and reliable.
  • Fuze also works well with MS Teams and provides a flexible enterprise that also has Microsoft Teams.
  • Fuze support line takes a bit longer than what you expect from them to answer your calls.
  • Meeting invites integrate with Google calendar and does not show you who has accepted the invite.
  • Retrieving call logs is bit tedious.
Fuze is extremely beneficial as it allows you to convey information clearly and efficiently. Fuze can also allow you to make specific groups that you are working with on a project together. All the required members can be sent info instantly without having to send multiple emails. Fuze has limitations on sending screenshots or images. Only one at a time.

Fuze is being used across the organization by certain departments only that need to keep on frequent communications and meetings. This has solved the issue of removing hard phones and bringing them home or wherever the users are, using their mobile app or softphone on their Laptops.
  • Easy to create a meeting and invite everyone outside of the organization since you don't need Google or Microsoft account to join them.
  • Simplify the fact that you can bring your line anywhere you are.
  • Easy to keep close with your officemates with the messaging feature.
  • You can modify your plans anytime in the most convenient way for you.
  • One of the improvements could be adding a feature to submit case support, directly from the Fuze application whenever technical assistance is needed.
Fuze is perfect for departments or groups because there is a limitation regarding licenses type and not all can enjoy the same features. For example, if employees within the same organization have a different type of license like (Voice and Messages) only, they are limited to start a video and this will depend on company budgets of course. My point is that other vendors provide all-in-one service for the same price.

We use Fuze throughout the whole company. Mainly used for chatting back and forth with other staff and departments. Very necessary while working remotely. We also use Fuze to make inter-office calls.
  • Chatting features.
  • Calling.
  • Lagging issues. Whether using it on an older pc or a brand new one, no matter my connection, there always seems to be a lag/delay.
Really the main use I would recommend Fuze for is chatting and internet calling features. However, there’s many other apps and programs that do the same.

We recently migrated away from the Fuze platform. It had originally been our contact center, collaboration, and telephony stack all in one.
  • The mobile app was delightful to use.
  • The GUI of the Windows/MacOS app were very intuitive.
  • Meeting quality was great.
  • Audio quality was phenomenal.
  • [In my experience,] customer service was bad. Might as well have been the Russian scammers from a Capital One commercial.
  • The contact center is a little more cumbersome to manage than the rest of the platform and is rebranded as InContact.
  • Had some SERIOUS billing/account management issues.
For the price, I find It really hard to recommend Fuze. It certainly was easy enough to manage, but not as easy as others, especially given that we are now paying less for better overall service/product from a competitor.

We have adopted Fuze as our unified communications platform across the enterprise. Each employee utilizes Fuze for voice communications, video conferencing, virtual meetings, and collaboration. With each employee having a direct dial number, applications on their laptop and their mobile device they are able to stay engaged with clients and coworkers regardless of their physical location. This allowed our business to seamlessly transition to a work from anywhere environment.
  • Fuze seamlessly integrates audio communication, chat collaboration, file sharing, and video conferencing / video meetings in one easy-to-use software package.
  • The Fuze application is solid and steady across all platforms, Windows, iOS, or even Android.
  • Even if just collaborating via text, Screen sharing is available to use and works incredibly well.
  • While they have been improving, there is still a limit to video feeds in their meetings function. This limit is much higher on other platforms.
  • Other platforms have the ability to use virtual backgrounds, this feature is missing from Fuze.
  • While their technical support is good, sometimes a number of follow-ups are required to solve the more complicated issues.
Fuze works great for employees and staff that could be in multiple locations or in the field, providing stable and consistent communications access from anywhere with internet or cell signal.
If your company does not have a dedicated IT staff to work as a liaison to the Fuze support staff, I could see where there could be challenges.

It is being used as our phone service provider and fax solution across most of our divisions. It gives us the mobility of cell phone to easily set up and deploy phones to anyone across the us. While giving us efax solution for certain regions that still need it.
  • Easy deployment.
  • Simple setup.
  • SSO integration.
  • The Fuze app for windows needs to not rely on hardware acceleration by default.
  • Has simple design, but needs to have a compact mode to not take up so much screen space.
  • Needs to have a better recovery from computer shutting off wifi, bc it thinks it isn't in use. The error that displays for that doesn't go away until reopen application.
Fuze is well suited in deploying to users in fast manner, in decent internet speeds, in situations where you don't want to spend a lot of money on hard phones, in situations that require user to be multiple locations.

Fuze is not appropriate in low internet service areas, where you don't have a IT person that can assist in working out the subtle nuances in the app for Windows.

Our whole organization uses Fuze. We have in-office personnel and work from home. If we have an issue, they provide 3 different options to make and get phone calls. We have used all 3. When the pandemic hit in 2020, we had everyone working from home in 1 day. It was amazing, and all due to the fact that we are using Fuze. Their products are super easy to install, order, and change.
  • Support Team - the best I have ever worked with. They help 24/7 on any issue I could come across. Usually it is an item I could fix myself and they fix it and show me how to fix the same issue if I have it in the future.
  • Contact Center - We do Commercial Collections involving Sales and Collections. We have 50 people on the phone at one time. Contact Center lets a Manager listen live and gives help if the rep needs help selling or collecting.
  • Pandemic 2020 - without Fuze we would have been unable to work for 3 months. They saved our "rears" since we already had all their services up and running for years.
  • Not sure on these questions. The 3 main products we use (phones, desktop and mobile app) all work great and we use all 3 every day. We even installed the click to dial so my users can click on a number in Chrome browser and they don't even need to use their hands. And when Chrome service goes down, they all forget how to dial by using a finger. It is rather funny except for all the calls I get.
We are a commercial collection agency involving sales and collections. We can control our call flows depending on if the incoming call is from Collections or Sales; control how our outbound caller ID shows. We can easily block calls if a debtor is getting irate. We can add or remove the inbound message to suit our needs. You can easily change your personal voicemail. You can have your manager easily pull any call or listen to another user's voicemail if they are out or on vacation. You can easily forward your phone to your cell or add the mobile app on your cell so all calls are recorded. It is just wonderful and we use it ALL.

We first started using it as our phone system and for our call center. We had the collaboration and messaging set up as well, but barely used [them]. Their help desk was pretty good at first, but they got rid of their support to email in an issue and then you had to call in. So submitting a ticket with a screenshot was no longer possible. Extra steps in troubleshooting and took longer because you had to wait to get hold of an agent and then explain what was wrong to them. Their help desk only answered one of my questions in the 2+ years we were with them. We eventually moved on from their call center application as it didn’t meet our needs. They upped the cost on us shortly after and it became cost prohibitive to stay with them. We notified them of this well before the contract end date. When they billed us again the following month we protested and it almost came to legal action with what they claimed was an early termination fee. I enjoyed them for a bit, but with them acting the way they did at the end I can’t recommend them.
  • Kinda quick responses
  • Mostly stable
  • If you escalate to your account rep things get done very quickly
  • I like their portal, but they [have] two different portals and that’s annoying
  • Customer service
  • Shady business practices [in my opinion]
  • Let your admins email in issues
  • Only one portal for admins would be cool
  • More engineers to resolve issues
If you tell a vendor you’re cancelling services and they want to charge an ETF after the contract ends because it auto renews even though you told them you’re done with them, you should probably just stop and rethink your business. I did like that they were based out of Boston, kind of close to my corporate office. Their knowledge base is kind of helpful, but you always find the wrong stuff first and takes a while to find something for yourself. It’s an okay phone system unless you want call queues or ring groups. Their engineers are super helpful, but I think there aren’t enough of them.

It's being used across the whole corporation, but I mainly use it in my department. It is mainly used to asked questions and get answers quickly.
  • User friendly
  • Updates regularly
  • Visually appealing
  • It doesn't sync up with my Outlook calendar all the time
  • Sometimes getting into meetings takes too long
  • Video freezes occasionally
I like using Fuze for calls and chat conversations. It's very user friendly.

Fuze is used throughout our company in all departments. We use this to help our team members quickly while they are helping customers and we use it to communicate with other departments.
  • Video meetings
  • Easily used to text our employees
  • Large group messages are received quickly
  • Video quality
  • Better ways to screen spam calls
Fuze is well suited for fast communication throughout the company. It is easy to search for someone within the organization.

We're currently using it as the executive or corporate phone system to replace our old Avaya PBX system. We've had it set up to also be able to communicate with our contact center side that uses a different system, so calls can be transferred over to that system as well.
  • It's cloud based, so you can access it anywhere. Works great for staff that works from home.
  • It can be used across different platforms. We use the desktop app, mobile app, or the web version, and they all work fine.
  • It can be linked if it has multiple locations. We have two locations in our city and are under the same center.
  • During the pandemic, this really help our company stay open the whole time.
  • Some configurations are not available, which causes it to be more limited than other systems.
  • Support is not always knowledgeable with some of the more common PBX issues.
  • The Contact Center Desktop app requires Java, and only uses an older version.
  • Support is sometimes oversees, so may reply to an issue we'll after business hours in the states.
Fuze is great for replacing an on-site telecommunication PBX system and can be done with a short amount of time, depending on how you need it setup. With the mobile app, you don't have to worry about forwarding your phone to another number, like your cell, or having to provide your personal cell number if you're out of the office frequently.

I wouldn't recommend it for a contact center solution because it can get pricey if you're a large business and everyone will be using desk phones. You also won't be able to access the desk phones' admin settings for specific configurations because it's not allowed with their service. If you're using the desktop app, then that can be an inexpensive solution for a contact center but is updated frequently, which can cause it to act unstable at times. In all, Fuze is a pretty solid system for a company that is small in size and/or doesn't mind depending solely on Fuze's support for small issues like adding a fax line without having a phone line attached to the user's account.
