Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

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

I think the call clarity is great and I think the Click to Dial feature is absolutely fantastic. However, I am still new to the system and I am still setting it up to meet my needs. I am sure that, once this stage is complete, my opinion on usability will change drastically. Right now, usability of setting up the system is what I am reviewing - and that is wanting. Setup functions could be more intuitive, more user friendly, and more obvious to new users.

The system is straightforward and easy to use.
Whether you are a user or an admin, you can learn very quickly how to use the phones.
It does not require much technical knowledge on how to use various functions, as they are well implemented and easy to find.
The usability is a big plus of this system.

When the system works it is wonderful. But I feel the sluggish UI and web interface really kill most of what is good about this product. Other than that the system works like a charm and is very easy to learn the administrative portion of the platform.
