“There are a lot of companies quoting 8×8, all with different vendor relationships. We chose Future Voice because they have their own 8×8 technical resource for deployment and first line support.”

“They offered us a tailored, personal service and any questions or configuration changes needed have been executed quickly, with minimal effort from my team, with out of hours support from 8×8 if needed. Future Voice had us live within a matter of days, even helping with the porting side of things and talking directly with our previous supplier when things got a bit complicated. IT was a great help, and with no downtime at all, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Future Voice to anyone.”

One cloud solution

Only having one system to work from not only increases revenue, but it also reduces the time spent by employees switching between platforms, searching for the information they need, meaning more time for the tasks they need to complete.
