Overall Satisfaction with ShoreTel

EXPENSIVE - beware of fees
Our whole company uses it
  • Technology - Allows rental of Cisco phones
  • Find me follow me feature
  • Customer Service - Process is lengthy and the "cases" seem repetitive and time consuming for the ShoreTel rep
  • Support response time - sometimes it takes WEEKS to get a response to a simple question
  • Fees - they now nickel and dime every account for every transaction
  • Integrity - they over billed us on 2 separate occasions for hardware that we had sent back. We were told we would not get full credit because it was our responsibility to report it sooner
  • Better customer service from features
  • No long distance charges
  • Hardware - Rent Cisco phones. The shoretel hardware is subpar
Shoretel is not what they used to be. They are now a fee based organization with poor customer service and tons of corporate red tape. We are locked into a contract and look forward to switching to a different company when that expires
Shoretel USED to be great. In recent months their customer service has become wore and worse and they add new fees all the time.
