Overall Satisfaction with 8x8 Express
We are currently using it in our sales department, trainers and reception area. It is an invaluable resource. We get calls throughout the day and if we don’t answer we lose sales. This enables us to connect with each call and the call forwarding option has been particularly useful so we don’t miss a beat.
- Being able to forward calls to my cell phone when I am out of office.
- So much functionality. So many options.
- One set price instead of a bunch of add-on fees.
- Setup is a pain.
- Transferring numbers take a long time.
- We are still learning all the nuances but we miss much fewer calls.
- Transitioning calls to the appropriate person is much easier.
- Ease of use.
I love 8x8. Having not used Polycom phones before, the hardest part was learning how to set up and use the actual phones. 8x8 makes it a seamless transition from using other service providers. Their customer service is excellent although if you get their cheapest plan you will only get online assistance.
If you get less than 4 phones you fall into the online only customer service. There were a couple of times that I could have used more assistance but figuring it out online was a bit of a hassle.

For the price, having all of these features is amazing. If you have separate divisions and want to not have a ton of crossover with calls this is a great setup. It isn’t a great setup if you need only one phone since it doesn’t make sense since you won’t use most of the features.
