    Product(s): VoiceMaxx

    Solid service, but not much in the way of frills or support.

    Overall Comment

    The solution is rock solid. If you want VOIP, you'll get VOIP. The reason they aren't rated higher is due to the fact that they are several major revisions behind the underlying (Cisco) platform's latest iteration, as well as the fact that the experience with support has been middling.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Do your due dilligence. Make sure what you sign up for is what you want, because if it is not, they will be fairly immovable in what accommodations they will make after the fact.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Dependable service.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    When it goes wrong, it goes very wrong, and they are not always open to how much of it is due to them.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    They're too focused on numbers and contract terms, and not enough on overall client experience.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Put more into the contract pertaining to account churn; we've had too many account managers in such a short time. We would also have looked at other providers more vigorously.

    Service & support - overall comment

    They have some really strong engineers, and some who are fairly weak.
