The Good:

Good, clear service and customer service is always happy to help.

The Bad:

Customer service isn't always immediately available though they do generally get back within 1 business day.

The call quality is clear and, once set up, we have only had part of one day where there issues with the system being unavailable to make/receive calls. The pricing is competitive and customer service is always friendly and helpful.

Jive is awesome!

The Good:

Great customer service! Tons of features, some of which I need to utilize more!

The Bad:

The customer service is what stands out the most to me. I am not the most "technically minded" individual, so having someone lead me through any questions I have is a big deal. We had some recent problems, which weren't even with Jive, it was with our local internet provider. I had a terrible time getting help through them, but my customer service representative with Jive (Craig) was wonderful, and checked in daily to see how it was progressing until we got it resolved with our local provider. He took a lot of time to explain what the problem was, and how to address it with our internet provider. I would totally recommend Jive to anyone looking for a business phone solution, for price and features, but mostly, the great customer service.

The Bad:

nothing to complain about.

I've been with Jive communications for almost a year and love them more and more each time I interact with them. Their staff is super friendly and alwasy willing to help. Billing questions are handled quickly. Anytime I've called in with a question or system feature, my questions have been answered quickly and professionally. Most time I find out that their system can do more than I realized. I woudl highly recommend Jive to anyone looking for a quality, dependable phone system.

The Bad:

I would highly recommend JIVE for VOip services. My company has used their services for a number of years and have been very happy with JIVE. Recently we moved our offices and had issues with our company owned hardware. The JIVE customer service team worked very quickly to help confirm that the JIVE network continued to work as good in our new offices as in our old space.

Very polite people, but awful customer service - Jive

The Good:

Cheap. Pretty simple setup and portal interface.

The Bad:

Customer service. Tech support. Billing.

Nice polite folks - well, being in Utah that would be expected. Long wait times for customer service or tech support - neither of whom seem to have any knowledge of what the other department has done. You get shuffled from pillar to post constantly going nowhere. It took me 3 months to get credited for some equipment we returned as instructed, and only then because I kept calling the billing folks until they finally crumbled. Total chaos as they hunted through various disparate systems - a paperwork nightmare. Another piece of equipment failed (3 months in) and I had to spend hours on multiple levels of support (repeating all the same stuff) to get it replaced under warranty. Finally gave up and wrote it off. As for Billing, there's no online access to the bill details - but they "hope to make that available" some time in the future. Huh? These folks just aren't ready for prime time - and it becomes obvious as soon as you need them to do something. Lots of lovely words just doesn't make up for wasted time and poor service. I'm sad to say this, but most of them need to find some other form of employment.

They are just doing their jobs!

The Bad:

So far so good!

We had switched from an other VoIP provider. Jive just did a good job from the very beginning! It was definitely worth the change. I would recommend them to anyone needs a good VoIP service and customer service experience

I really like this company - Jive

The Good:

They have an excellent Customer Services. They really want to help you fix the problem. That is so atypical of most companies. My Rep Candace has been there for a long time, which is great. Employes that stay at a company say a lot about a company.

The Bad:

They don't seem to be cutting edge with think like click to dial

I am very happy with the company. I have been with them for over five plus years. I would recommend them to others. The customer services are great. Along with the techs they do a great job. I have tried other VOIP companies, but GetJive has worked best for me.

The Bad:

When I was looking to replace my company's old phone system, I researched many voip providers. I was particularly impressed with Jive due to their feature-rich system and US-based support. I spoke with one of their sales reps via chat and was sold. It has been smooth sailing ever since. As our company has grown, we've had to add new phones to the system and it's quite an easy process. Support has been very helpful with the few minor issues we've run into since deployment. I would definitely recommend Jive to anyone looking for a hosted pbx system.

Awesome Service with Jive

The Bad:

Absolutely love working with Jive. The previous company we used was a complete nightmare to work with. When I switched to Jive it was an amazing breath of fresh air. As a small business owner, I don't have time to waste worrying about if the phones are working, or spending hours trying to get them funcitoning correctly. Working with Jive has been extremely, easy, professional, and such a time saver. Wish I would have started here and not wasted time with other companies. I'm a customer for life.

Jive - the hidden flaws!

Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

Good sound quality, friendly support and service.

The Bad:

Incomplete call logs.

Incomplete call logs. We depend on our call logs to support litigation efforts. I just found out that Jive's call logs have been "80-90% complete", and it is an issue they "are aware of", and they are "working on it". This is COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE for businesses that expect and need call logs to be accurate. And, if Jive already knew this, then why did they not proactively inform their customers? Unacceptable and dishonest. I can't trust Jive to disclose other known issues in the future, so we must now find another provider. Stay away from Jive. The appear to spend a lot of time polishing the shiny parts you see everyday, but the back-end is just as important. You won't know you have a hidden problem until it is to late.

VERY PLEASED WITH MY CHOICE OF JIVE

Easy setup and great customer support. Tech support also great and prompt in handling the very few issues I have had.

The Bad:

None

I have used a number of voip service providers in the past and had multiple problems with each with regard to sound quality and billing. Jive is definitely the exception! Their customer service and tech support is nothing short of outstanding! They were extremely helpful with setting up the system on my computer and have always been available to provide tech assistance the few times I have need it. Great company!

Fast Support Responses with Jive

The Good:

The quick turn around time for JIVE support has always made us confident that we choose a great VOIP provider. The resolutions given in response to a support ticket have always been clearly defined and appropriate to the issue. Phone call quality is superb, audio on both ends is crystal clear and reliable - never had a phone call dropped.

The Bad:

We should have switched to JIVE sooner than we did, but now that we have we will never switch back!

We have been using Jive as our VOIP provider for a couple years. Jive support is consistently fast and correct in each resolution. We have enjoyed the high level of support quality as well as the quality of the VOIP service itself. We highly recommend Jive as a VOIP provider, from the positive and patient responses of the support team to the crystal clear audio quality of the service, we could not be more satisfied. THANK YOU JIVE!!

The Good:

Price is great, quality is better than others I have tried. Just started using the Softphone, and so far it works great. Now just waiting on the Iphone app to come out, plan on using that as well. Customer and Tech Services have been great, and have gotten with me in a timley manner.

The Bad:

The only Con so far is with learning the Onjive, we tend to set it and leave it, so some of that is on our end, but when we have questions we go to the tutorials and they get us through the questions.

Get Jive overall has been great to work with, we have been using them for a year and half, and have had no issues with our service. We recently added Mobility so we can have softphone use on some of our computers where we do not have phone, this is new for us, so i will have to comment on that later. Overall our experience with Get Jive has been great, 5 stars all the way

Jive Communications combines great VOIP service with accountability and great customer care.

Saves money, reliable, comfortable, service is great

The Bad:

Could be more "non-techie" friendly for setting up functions, but staff is great to help. Don't get the cheapest phone, Polycom 320 is not easy to use

They've always been very helpful, really don't have to interact much because it works great all the time. Billing is simple and support great. The techies are very patient, considerate and help laypeople with any problems, no matter how "dumb" we are.

Jive is the best !!

The Good:

After 18 months of service, I have been a very happy client of Jive. The service is great. The only downside is you must have a strong (8mbg) internet speed. The added services of "follow me" has impressed my clients when they try to reach me after hours -- and they can. Service for tech support is wonderful.

The Bad:

Paying "extra" for a faster internet. Considering I am paying 50%+ less on phone than with ATandT. Not a show stopper.

With 18 months of use under my belt, I am a very happy user of Jive Communications VoIP. The "follow me" service where I program my phone to ring on any other (cell) phone is a key advantage for clients to access me and not be a slave to my office or feel guilty for running to the bank in the middle of the afternoon. I'll be a client for many years to come .....

Horrible customer service from Jive. I feel like these reviews are from within the company.

All the features we needed

The Bad:

Can't get a hold of my sales guy after the install after calling 10 times. Service outage for an entire day in 2012. Was promised 3 months free because of the outage. They never delivered. Service just went out again today for a half hour. More expensive than the alternatives.

Can't get a hold of my sales guy after the install after calling 10 times. Service outage for an entire day in 2012. Was promised 3 months free because of the outage. They never delivered. Service just went out again today for a half hour. More expensive than the alternatives. I'm a busy business owner and I took the time to write this review because after looking at alternatives I feel like these reviews must be internal reviews from within OnJive. I don't believe they are true reviews.

Good, solid service with Jive

Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

Customer service is very prompt in emailing back and giving you a solution to whatever issue you have. They have a number of really great features at a very reasonable price point. They include call queues, efax, conference rooms and several others features that most other companies charge for separately. I have found that the call queues work very well. They have a lot of features within them that make them really helpful in our call center. The expandability of Jive is really great. We use it day to day for our small business and we use it for a major call center for disaster relief. We are able to add soft phones and hard phones relatively quickly when we need more. It is not hard to end a line/device either. Which is important.

The Bad:

NoneThe sound quality is really pretty good. We have had a couple of times people have complained about a bad connection, but that has been rare. We did have one day shortly after we joined in March that Jive went down for about 5-10 minutes, but we haven't seen any major problems since. Customer service is very slow to answer the phone. I don't think I have ever gotten someone when I call. I just wait in a queue until I grow impatient and hang up. If you leave a message they generally get back to you rather quickly. I have found emailing them is the quickest most efficient way to receive an answer.

We are very pleased that we choose Jive as our phone provider. Upon signup, they walked us through getting the system set up and gave a concise overview of the features offered and how to access them. I would highly recommended Jive as a phone provider as we have had no problems so far with either their service or their product.

The Good:

call quality, reliability, customer service, price

The Bad:

Haven't found any.

Found Jive with an Internet search, read a bunch of reviews and they all seemed great, so I decided to try it out. Customer service was excellent from the start. In 30 minutes I was up and running. Service worked out-of-the-box with both Linux softphones I use (Jitsi and Bria 3) - all I had to do was input my credentials into these programs. Sound quality is excellent - no break-ups, delays, etc, even though I'm calling US numbers all the way from Brazil. Price is very competitive and service quality is far superior to alternatives I tried. Felipe

Very Satisfied with Jive

The Good:

Outstanding customer service! If I can't get through immediately they call back in less than 15 minutes. All of the agents I've spoken with are willing to take as much time as is necessary to resolve my issue.

The Bad:

The written instructions on how to do anything on the admin side of the phone system are written by a programmer, for a programmer. If you're not a programmer, much of what needs to be known is a mystery. It would be very helpful if the instructions were reviewed by someone who does not know already how to perform the subject function so they can identify where more written steps would be useful.

We have only had our phone system for four days, but it is quite reliable so far. We did have a few growing pains (to be expected), and the Jive Customer Service Agents were very helpful in resolving the issues as we identified them. The only issues we haven't been able to resolve are minor, and seem to be built into the Polycom phones we are using, rather than being something Jive has any control over.

We switched from another VoIP provider and I could not be happier. The tech support and customer service are professional, timely, and they are so patient. This is the first phone company, of any type, Mobil, land or VoIP where I have experienced such support and service.

The Good:

Customize to suit all your needs, endless options, speedy follow through, especially diligent, kind, and caring Support Team, always resolved our issues very quickly

The Bad:

The System itself has so many options, that for one who is not familiar, it can seem overwhelming. But even this I can say is a pro because they teach the system to you as they assist you in your needs, so really there aren't too many cons at all!

I am the Administrative Coordinator and Bookkeeper at a property management and real estate company. We had issues with our previous provider so we switched over to Jive Communications. It was absolutely a perfect fit for us and has enabled us to move forward and grow more technically savvy, and to also provide better service to our customers. The options are endless with this system and the Service Team Specialists are a fingertip or call away and work very diligently to resolve any issues we may have. They have helped us to customize our VOIP options to exactly what suits our needs. And though the System is rather complicated, they walk you through it and make it easy! I actually enjoyed my calls and emails with the Specialist Support Team, because they are very smart, very helpful, and so friendly! We are grateful for Jive!

The Good:

Excellent quality and value.

The Bad:

None.

When looking for a VoIP phone system, it was a no brainer when it came to which company to go with. Jive is one of the most user friendly services I have ever used not to mention the customer service department is hands down the best in the business. I would highly recommend Jive to anyone looking to save money on phone service and increase user capabilities!

Jive Great!

Posted:
Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

Great PBX system that charges based on active users on handsets not by ext. Have a great attendant setup that is flexible and very granular. I was very surprised at the level of control I have. Customer service speaky the English very good (lol). Seriously plain spoken English tech support. When they say their name is "Mike"....pretty good chance it's not their "work" name.

The Bad:

A con that most have. Google Voice forwarding does not detect my auto-attendant picked up at Jive. This is the case for most VOIP carriers as Google Voice just rings to it's voice mail when forwarded to a Jive number. This is because the VOIP carrier (Jive) is not sending the correct signal back as "answered". Again almost every VOIP carrier does this. However it would be really cool if Jive fixed this.

Been with them for 2 months. Not long enough to determine reliability. I do understand though they had issues during the Sandy Hurricane. Most hosts in NY and NJ did. Looks like their eggs where is all one basket. However checking their new srv records and failover it looks like they learned from the issue and deployed other servers in the US.

I love the service. Very knowledgeable sales team as well as technical team. I have seen a lot of product in my life. This the first time I have no problem with a product and service (Jive VOIP). I want to say that the service have not been down for even one second! That is a record. I have been ecommanding the product to as many people possible.

The Bad:

Customer service hold time was long during the outage but has been very responsive otherwise.

Jive has great options and features for the price. Comparable services from a couple other business VoIP providers was almost double based on how they bill for users or additional lines. The porting of our numbers from ATandT went smoothly. We did experience one brief outage that resulted in a delay on calls connecting but it was quickly corrected.

Ease of use. Quality of equipment. The professional sales people. Technical support is US based.

The Bad:

There is none.

This is an incredible system. I own a very expensive PBX system with one of my other companies and the Jive system beats every feature that my system has and more. Lets face it, even the most simple to use systems as Jive, will need some technical assistance. The support is quick, experience and most important American based. It is easy to get help and be up and running in no time flat! It is everything they promised and more. Everyday I find a new aspect that makes the system more valuable.

The Bad:

Can't think of any.

This was a very easy purchase. The system is intuitive. I recommend it. We are a start-up company and it is affordable. I also like the fact that it is month-to-month. I don't like to think that my company may not survive, but if that happens, I'm will not be stuck with a long-term phone contract.

Jive offers a Pleasant Partnership

Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

Going with Jive has allowed us customization to better meet our business needs. The sound quality is the same as our landline and the equipment is easy to use. I like the web interface for customization features and it's nice to be able to get a technician on the phone ( I can understand) to help me learn how to do things or troubleshoot issues.

The Bad:

The help menu for their web interface should offers how to's for customers learning the web interface. I did not know how to do something and had to talk to 2 techs to figure it out. The good part is the 1st tech emailed me to check in and said if I figured it out to let him know so he could learn as well!

Jive has made the transition process seamless and offers a good quality product. It is a learning curve for me but the customization makes it all worth it. The web interface is nice as it can be accessed from anywhere should we need to manage our phones remotely.

Jive has Outstanding Service

The Good:

The technicians stayed on top of things and didn't quit until I had my issue resolved with "phantom ringing" in the middle of the night a couple times. Always polite and professional.When I called in the first time to find out more about the company and services offered I was completely satisfied with the patience, professionalism, and knowledge of my customer service rep, Jen. It was near "quitting time", but she was not in a hurry to end the call and stayed with me until I felt comfortable enough to sign up for service ( my decision, no pressure or hype) .

The Bad:

There is nothing I did not like about Jive. I can't think of one negative thing. I have recommended them to every business owner I know.

The Good:

Great Customer Service, Great Tech Support, Very KNowledgable Staff, Easy Setup, Intuitive Interface, The Dial Plan Editor

The Bad:

I have yet to run into an issue that warrants being placed here.

My horror started long before I knew Jive was around. Our company moved into an office building, and on a very tight budget. We ended up getting a 25 year old, used ATT Merlin System for our phones. Bulky Clunky phones that didn't really provide any functions other then calling in and out. The administration for the system was horrible. And then the hunt began, I reviewed for months and months on different providers, and all of them were extremely insufficient, not knowledgeable in their product, or way too pushy of a sales person. As our current phone system was going under, the pressure to get a new system was climbing. In the end I presented 3 options to my board none of which was Jive. Our middle of the road option was RingCentral, that made the most sense in features, price, etc... My goal was to come in the next day and getting the ball rolling with RingCentral. For some reason I went home and ended up here on voipReview. And boy did my opinion change. RingCentral had some pretty bad reviews. And my judgment shifted to look for another provider, and I came across Jive, read the reviews and began checking them out. I initiated a chat with Jen, one of Jive's sales reps. There wasn't a question I asked that she couldn't have answered. I spoke with Jen over the next 24 hours and had my mind set on getting Jive for our company. I made my presentation the next afternoon, got the approval and begin the process. The setup could not have been any easier. I had a kickoff call with a Jive Rep that walked me through my system explained everything and how all the features work. Again, I couldn't ask any question that he didn't have an answer to. Our phones came on a Wednesday at 2PM. I had 15 phone lines to switch from our current system over to the new system. I had the entire system, up and running by 6PM. Our phone system was completely switched over to Jive in less then 4 hours. This also included 2 phones which were remotely located outside of our office, and never connected to interoffice dialing before Jive. To wrap up this long review, in a nutshell Jive has been amazing, I look forward to our future. If your still reading this review, go GETJIVE!

Jive is Amazing!!!

Customer Service, Price, Reliability, Tech Support

The Bad:

None yet

When I originally started my search for a VOIP Service Provider I knew nothing about Voip Service. I needed 10 lines and 10 phones and I researched online a ton and called several of the providers. ex: Nextiva, 8x8, Ring Central etc. I really felt very pressured and like I was dealing with a used car salesman every time. I ultimately ended up going with Ring Central, mostly because I was under pressure to get something going and I felt like I was choosing between the lesser of the evils, honestly. I was told there was a 30 day satisfaction guarantee so I felt like I had nothing to really lose. I had spoke with the rep from Ring Central several times before I chose to go with them and he had called me several times to pressure me into signing up. Every time I called him before I actually signed up he answered right away. Once I signed up and had given him my credit card details the nightmare began. I was unable to reach him after that, I left messages and he did not return my calls. He told me my credit card would be charged $4000 but he promised me $2000 would be credited back to my credit card for signing up for the 10 lines and purchasing the phones. The credits did not show up and there was no explanation. The phones came and we tried to get everything set up and the tech support was awful. They didn't even have a lot of the services that our rep had promised. Just about everytime I called I ended up talking to someone that I couldn't understand and who couldn't understand me in India. I decided to cancel my service and send all of the phones back but now I had to find a different provider. Just as I was getting sick of all of the sales crap from all of the different providers out there I came across Jive. I initiated an online chat with a rep named Candace and then decided to get more information by calling. I suddenly felt my anxiety lifted as my questions got answered and the solutions to my problems were being answered. My rep was very friendly and knowledgable about the Jive service and the phones that they had to offer. She didn't pressure me at all, she only answered my questions and offered solutions that she could provide. After speaking with Candace and going over everything that our business needed in a Voip service I felt confident that I had found the right provider. I gave her my credit card details and placed my order and have never looked back. My phones came pre-configured and ready to go. Jive service is everything I hoped it would be. The phones that my rep reccomended are fantastic, the service is great, every time I have needed to call for answers to questions or for tech support I have spoke with a rep in the U.S. who is knowledgable and friendly (they even send follow up emails). I can't rave enough about how happy and relieved I am to have found a great VOIP provider that actually does what they say they are going to do. I am glad that I got away from Ring Central and I urge anyone to not listen to any of their own hype about how great they are because they are the WORST company that I have ever had to deal with!!!! And I am completely confident that anyone who tries it will absolutely regret it! Jive lives up to their promises and I can't imagine anyone being anything but completely happy with them!

The Good:

Great customer service, friendly staff, fast and knowledgeable to troubleshooting any issues. The dial plan is very user friendly and makes it easy to make changes as employment changes.

The Bad:

We have had difficulties with our phone cutting in and out due to high amounts of jitter. It has been difficult to deal with that because our internet service provider never has a clear answer as to why the issues are occurring.

Jive has been great to work with. Everyone that we have encountered from sales and customer service to their tech support has been very friendly and ready to help. Everyone seems very knowledgeable in their field and make troubleshooting a breeze. I cannot say enough about the friendliness of the staff...whatever model corporate has set for their employees is incredible. Keep up the great work!

The Good:

Their ability and willingness to help with ANYTHING sets them apart from the competition.

The Bad:

The employees are so smart and good at what they do they almost make you feel like a half-wit for wasting your whole morning trying to figure something out that takes one of the employees at JIVE two seconds to fix. That's not really a CON, but it's nearly impossible to think of anything.

As a start-up business, JIVE has been there with us since day one. I've grown quite fond of the employees- highly-qualified, helpful, resourceful, professional, reliable- what is there not to love? The customer service is outstanding and it doesn't just stay within the customer service department. The whole company demonstrates exceptional client service skills. No problem is too big for the JIVE Communications team. If you're on the market for a VoIP host, what are you waiting for? GETJIVE.com!!! Thanks, JIVE Communications, for all that you do!

The Good:

JIVE is easy to set up and use. Flexibility for everyone since you can take your phone anywhere and work if you have an internet connection. Excellent support.

The Bad:

There are times (infrequent) that calls get lost in a black hole, customers cannot leave a message and the call does not roll to the extension. If a call is on hold and another all comes in, it pushes the "hold" call to the back and you cannot access it until the new call is answered.

When you have a relationship with a vendor that reflects your business it is important to have excellent service and support, as JIVE does. JIVE is easy to set up and whenever we have technical issues, JIVE is readily available to assist us. All of our employees may call and ask for help. We had a very difficult and strange problem and JIVE worked with our employee until it was resolved. It was actually in the phone circuit board but JIVE figured it out. This reasonably priced system allows our company to have many employees work from home yet maintain our branding and inter-connectivity. Periodically, there is static or lost calls and we want JIVE to "fix" it immediately----however we have learned it is usually the internet connection which is failing not JIVE system. JIVE might recommend updating a modem and recently determined that I didn't have a permanent IP address attached to my phone, thereby causing minor issues. Their excellent technicians solved it. A very nice company to work with.

It's Great!

Jive is easy to use and the quality of the call is nice. The price is great for a small startup like us. The customer service offered is good as well - our requests were always taken care of in a very timely manner and we never had to call back. The only issue is that sometimes you could hear a little overlap between the 2 phone lines we have in the office, but it wasn't too big of a deal.

The Good:

I own two businesses, and I've realized great service is incredibly hard to come by. Jive's service has been impeccable, I love that aspect. As far as the product, we purchased 5 phones including the base, great quality and we now own them as opposed to leasing, which is nice. I was nervous about the phone line quality, but it has met my expectations. The best part of Jive's service is the portal where you can completely customize your call flow including initial greeting, hold music, voicemail boxes, extensions, call routing, etc. AND, it's all included in the price, no hidden charges.

The Bad:

I did not love the fax integration. Faxes come in to our email, which was great because we could choose to print, forward, etc. But outbound faxes was less desirable. This is not Jive's fault, it's just the nature of the VOIP beast, so we simply routed our fax number back to a traditional analog line.

We searched several websites and Jive always came up rated in the top 5 and I see why. Service is wonderful, product is great and we couldn't really ask for more. We have referred the company to several industry cohorts, way to go!

The Good:

Price is fair, Web Interface is easy and Customer service is quick and responsive.

The Bad:

I prefer bills in the mail, but they e-mail all the invoices. Going paperless is not a choice but a mandate. Its the only thing I would change.

I really like their easy web interface. I'm no rocket surgeon and I can still get everything done easily and professionally. Their Fax-to-Email and Email-To-Fax functionality is great. Its something I did not know existed and now I use it Daily, all included no extra charge. Although my business partner insisted on a PBX for our business, now Im glad we have it. Its worth the cost for sure.

Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

The user interface/website is incredibly intuitive and modern. Customer service is the BEST I have encountered in my entire career. I have gotten a helpful human being within seconds every time I've called - and the systems all just make sense. Really can't offer higher praise than that!

The Bad:

Just wish I had found them sooner!

I own a small business in Manhattan and have been using Verizon for 8 years. After a particularly frustrating customer service encounter, it just seemed as if there had to be a better alternative - and also a cheaper one. A friend suggested Jive and they're everything I've been looking for, and more. I'm now paying a fraction of what I was paying with Verizon for infinitely better service. I have not noticed ANY difference in call quality - and now I have extreme functionality (like having voicemails e-mailed to me as they come in and a customize-able auto-attendant) and I really just couldn't be happier with the choice I've made.

The Good:

Offers call queuing (most don't) - excellent pricing and support.

The Bad:

I am a business owner who owned his own telephone system. I spent $11K on it only to find it had devalued to $1K a few years later. I began a search for a hosted option and settled on Jive. I have used Jive for several years now and could not be more satisfied. In addition to the standard features once would expect from a hosting company, they one of the only companies that offered call queuing, which for my business at the time, was a necessity. Their pricing is excellent and the support is stellar. You can't go wrong with Jive!

Jive Not Business Ready

Posted:
Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

Web interface for system management is good

The Bad:

Customer Service is Absolutely Terrible They do not have any redundant backup

I've used GetJive for about 4 months. The call clarity is good. Not great, but good. There is often a lag in the conversation, but it usually does not affect calls The main issue is outages. We've had several. Usually they are short, just 10 or 15 minutes, but we've had one that was 2 hours and one that was 10. Apparently, they only have one data center and if there is a hiccup there, you are toast. During the 10 hour outage, I lost about $5,000 of business and the damage to my business is certainly greater. During the outage, I received 8 emails that there was a problem with the service. I also received another 9 that said services were fully restored, but it actually took another 5 hours before service came back. We called for support, but were not able to get ahold of a live person for the first 6 hours. When we did get a live person, they told us to just wait for 30 more minutes. It was not possible at any point in the outage to get an ETA for when the system would be back online. If you are able to run your business not knowing if your phones will work, then GetJive is for you. But, if you are like me and cannot have your phones be out for more than a few minutes, then RUN, RUN, RUN from GetJive. Under no circumstances would I recommend GetJive to a friend. In fact, I would be happy to sit with them and would spend hours if needed to talk them out of it.

Unreliable outages, poor communication

Posted:
Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

Friendly support people, good call quality

The Bad:

Unreliable outages! non-existent redundancy (including their own lines), no fall-back settings, takes hours to get an update

We've been using Jive for over a year now, it's more money per line because of the way they charge but we went with them because of the reviews they had here on voipreview. The past several months have left me regretting that investment for the following reasons: 1) 2 service outages over the past couple of months lasting more than half a workday = lost $$,$$$.$$ (yes that's actually how much we estimate this cost us) 2) Their own phone lines are down when an outage occurs, redundancy people? I'm amazed that a phone company doesn't have some POTS lines to at least backup their own lines with. 3) With both outages there hasn't been communication from them about what's happening for hours. Today's outage took them 4 hours to send a email to everyone saying that they were working on service coming back on. FOUR HOURS for just a simple "yes we are still in business and there are people working on making your phones work again" message. This coupled with their own phone lines being down made me honestly consider that they may be out of business. I'm still waiting for our phones to turn back on, 7 hours in. 4) There is no option to have a fail-over number, my previous provider made this available to us in case their was an outage so at least we could take calls on our cell phone and our customers weren't left with a disconnected message. So in short, I think that this company might have had their act together at one point in time but right now if you are needing to have a reliable phone system with the redundancy and fail safes necessary I would suggest looking elsewhere. Jive just doesn't cut it for business class.

The Good:

Great service when working, able to really define detailed call plans.

The Bad:

Looks like service is totally down at 10:02 am EST on October 31, 2012. I assume they used a datacenter on the east coast, and the problems are caused by Hurricane Sandy. But no way to contact, No notification on web site, and why not have backup datacenters on East and West coast. Reliability is important. We use VOIP so we can reroute phone calls in an emergency, but assumed the provider had first class redundancy built in.

Jive Phone Service Rocks

Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

Its very easy to setup and use. You can just buy the phones from them, they set them up and ship it to our office. We plug in in the phone and it just works. It is awesome.

The Bad:

The price can sneak up pretty fast. We started with 4 phones, and now have 16 devices. It would be nice to have sip credentials for softphones mobile phones without being charged the device (monthly) fee. I think they could give those out for free at a certain usage level.

Jive is a great service. We have used them for over a year. The quality, support, hardware and everything is great. They are quick to setup and have a fully customization control panel. I would suggest them to anyone.

The Good:

Great at getting back to you, following up. Very good technical knowledge.

The Bad:

Some answers can be a bit too techy, need to keep it simple with stepped instructions to solve problems.

I have been struggling to get my VOIP working offshore. The Jive team are very knowledgable but they need to make sure their answers match the customers knowledge base. Example "So you would need to add the hotels wifi network to your PBX as trusted before using Bria, but once you do you shouldn't have an issue." As a customer, you need to figure out what a PBX is and how to add it as trusted yourself. It would be more useful to provide steps to solve the problem.

Knowledgable sales team and staff know how their service can best fit into your existing network and telephony needs

The Bad:

Truly there are none - Amazing service and great people!

As a small business it is sometimes difficult to adopt new technology not because of the cost of the actual device but because of the infrastructure required for the device and the new system. THIS PARADIGM CHANGES WITH JIVE! With Jive it is literally plug and play - order the service, connect your phones to your existing HSIA connection and you are done! It really is that simple. Now a small business is able to have dial plans for auto attendants, schedules for calling, conference extensions, virtual e-faxes (included in the service price) and much more! Your small business takes on the feel of a corporate office which is beneficial for both your staff and your clients - making it easier to connect to your client base while simultaneously facilitating your intra office productivity. The feature set that Jive offers speaks for itself and for the price it just cannot be beat. If you are looking for a hosted VoIP service I completely recommend Jive as your solution!

JIVE VIOP That Just Works

Posted:
Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

This service simply works you dont have to know how to run the phone company just to set up your call flows etc and they work without a bunch of tweaking from the back end level 2 techs

The Bad:

None

We run 3 businesses with 3 phone lines plus a toll free number with 3 sets of business hours plus our home numbers. we handle thousands of calls a month with just 3 or 4 reps. Those that call are screened based on the number called and time of day. Callers are properly routed or forwarded to home or cell if it is a personal call. Business calls are answered or forwarded to the call cue / voice mail and results are emailed to us for proper action. The previous VIOP provider could not figure this out and it never worked correctly and was always needing tweaking from tech support. Using the JIVE interface and one quick call to tech support I made all of this work all on my own. We get a lot more done with no problems and all of this is half the price of the previous VIOP provider.

Very Pleased!

Great service and even greater customer service.

The Bad:

I made the jump to VoIP about 3 1/2 years ago. Being 56 and a technophobe Iwas apprehensive but the folks at Jive assured me it would be ok. They were right. In that time I've experienced 3 short service disruptions and they fixed they problem in very short order. And I've realized enormous cost savings. My savings over our old system are approximately 65% over the last 3 1/2 years. But the best thing has been the people. Anytime I've spoken to Jive I've ALWAYS spoken with the same person, the woman who worked we me in the very beginning to set things up. How often does that happen?! The personal service has been exceptional.

Jive is amazing! It works perfectly for my business! You can not beat the price and there are rarely any issues. When something is wrong, I just call in the and issue is taken care of immediatly and I always get a follow up to make sure the service was sufficent. I don't know any other company with follow up like this. They are also great with the little details that I don't always realize, but for example when I call my store and am put on hold.. it's the most pleasant hold music and I know my customers LOVE it too!

We have had so few problems with the physical phones and the service that I could count them on one hand. There has never been any issues with voice or sound quality either.

Fantastic, easy to use self-management tools online -- makes it really easy to change your phone menus and routing with drag and drop pieces Really reliable - no quality issues in the past 2 years and no down time Friendly support people Lots of features

The Bad:

Support hold times can sometimes be 5-10 minutes but it's worth the wait

We have used Jive for our small company for about 2 years or so, and have been very happy. I personally tried a few other voip providers (big names in the industry, who I see on this site) and was not satisfied with their sound quality or had issues with downtime. One of the biggest providers in the industry advertised a 100% no downtime guarantee to us but had outages multiple times per month. With Jive we have never gone down and never have quality issues. Their support people are super friendly and they have grown a lot over the past few years since we started using them. Jive has done a fantastic job of giving us the tools we need to communicate and the features we need to save time. I would recommend them to anyone.

Our business only employees 3 people, however we run alot of little businesses, all with their own domain names, addresses customer service departments, etc. I tried 5 YES COUNT THEM 5 other services that would cater to this type of setup without having to buy 5 pbxs separately. Jive was the ONLY one who completely met all the requirements we had. We are able to call out using their lines feature on each individuals business number and caller id name as well as when we get calls in identify where people are calling from to answer the phone correctly. Scott(support) and Jen(sales) took the time to hear me out and setup my account properly and really treated me like I was a BIG company even though my company is just a 3 person company. I cannot recommend them enough! :) P.S. That is not to mention their amazing visual dialplan designer that I have seen no where else...

The service is lovely and folks at jive respond quickly. I'm a happy customer. I LOVE the interface for changing our call structure. It's so easy and I can change things instantly, without having to call the support desk. We enjoy having the voicemails forwarded to our email, like other providers. The desk phone is awesome. We have just a basic Cisco 4 line phone. It's lovely.

The Bad:

Sometimes I wish that Jive could recommend a perfect Softphone. We have 3 Softphones and 1 desk phone, and the desk phone is lovely. The softphone is slightly less reliable.

I recommend Jive without reservation. I think if you're less internet savvy, then you might get frustrated with all VOIP systems. Jive is the easiest I've seen.

The Bad:

Virtual fax works well, but is still a little cumbersome to use for outbound. Inbound is great. Everything else with Jive is pure bliss. Great tool for any size business!

Did lots of research on 7 or 8 competitors, read tons of VoIP recommendation blog entries, thoroughly looked into alternatives, like Vonage, and Jive ended up being cheaper for us, not to mention a much more fitting and thorough option. I so highly recommend Jive.

We have already recommended Jive to friends and businesses we know could benefit with their services.

Jive: Best Combo of Price, Quality, Use

Posted:
Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

Great price, system features, call quality and customer service

The Bad:

None

As an IT consultant, I have thoroughly researched over a dozen hosted VoIP companies. I believe that Jive has the best combination of pricing, quality of service and ease of use of any of the offerings out there. Initially we chose not to use them because their pricing model made them pretty expensive but they have since reevaluated their pricing structure and are now much more aggressively priced. All of our clients have saved significantly by changing from the a la carte pricing model of the previous provider. Their offering is already feature-rich by comparison but they continue to actively add functionality and have just hired a number of new developers to continue to drive enhancements forward. All customer service and support is US based and is easily accessible with little to no hold time.Another thing that is often not considered is the usability of the website. All vendors will provide you with a web interface for configuring users, extensions and system functionality. Jive's web interface is superior to all I have experienced and is not only very fast but extremely usable. System configuration of call routing is done through a graphical drag-and-drop interface which reminds you of a flowchart. This make it SO much easier to see how calls will actually flow through the system as opposed to trying to visualize in your head how multiple auto attendants which are linked together with diffrerent timing structures will behave. This system is so intuitive that I was able to recreate my largest client's most complex programming easily and on the first try where it took multiple calls to the previous provider to get it to function as we wanted. Call reporting is very powerful and the system is designed to automatically detect the type of handset you are using and perform some configuration items automatically based on that information. Overall, the system is very well thought out and extremely flexible and we haven't experienced a minute of downtime since switching (certainly can't be said of our previous vendor).

Jive: Great and Prompt Customer Service

The Good:

Great and prompt customer service. Consistent good call quality and easy customization of dial plans.

The Bad:

None, so far.

I did a lot of research on VOIP providers before deciding on Jive. What settled the deal was their exceptional customer service. Sure, everyone is nice before you're a paying customer but Jive has consistently come through with their exceptional service even when they were not at fault. I once had an issue with my cable modem and their representatives quickly walked me through the problem and resolved it. My main concern about VOIP phone systems was the possible downtime but in the five months I've been with Jive, I've had no downtime at all. Even after adding a few more lines, the call quality has remained good. They also offer a ton of customization features that can be overwhelming but once again you're never left to figure it out all by yourself. There's always help from them. Highly recommended!

They came highly recommended from a fellow agent. They sent the phones pre-programmed so all we had to do was plug and play. Customer services has been wonderful, from helping us get set up, dial plan and walking us through some changes we've made. 1000% better than my old provider. Already recommended to others!

The Good:

Extremely responsive support and account management team! Management console is straightforward and easy to quickly make configuration changes to our virtual pbx.

The Bad:

Still have to rely on traditional carriers that have pass through costs (e.g., DIDs) to Voip customers.

Have been a customer for over six months now with no service issues. Can't say enough about customer service as they make everything easy. Porting numbers was simple (from our end) - just had to wait on the several week process from the carrier. Flexibility offered by the virtual pbx has been very useful when needing to quickly add extra conference bridges or changing dial plans. Anyone looking for a better provider should consider Jive.

I did my research before I chose a VOIP service. My experience with VOIP prior to Jive was with Packet 8 with a previuos company. When it came time to start my own businessI chose Jive.

The Good:

Friendly staff, good voice quality

The Bad:

Reliability, price for what you get

We switched to Jive after reading the glowing reviews and needing get a provider that offered a more jitter free experience. Jive had a higher cost with the type of setup we needed, but we thought they imbued quality and were willing to ante up for it. It hasn't been a good experience thus far however, what we've experienced is a system riddled with bugs of varied degrees. The biggest of which right now is one where the pbx stops playing the ringing sound to the caller (although while still proceeding with the call on all other accounts) making them think the line has disconnected. They of course hang up and call back never being able to leave a voicemail and driving us crazy with trying to catch the call. Over the past month Jive's support, while being friendly and nice, hasn't been able to figure it out. Add that to the problem we started encountering this week of some calls only ringing once before actually disconnecting them, and it becomes a hindrance on your business.My evaluation is that it would appear Jive has the right theory going with treating the customer well, but just hasn't had the engineering time or muscle yet to create a reliable system the customer needs. I might check them out again in 5 yrs to see if that's changed.

Great sound quality and system features - does everything we hoped for in a phone system

The Bad:

Had a connection issue, but it was quickly and professionally corrected by Jive

The entire experience from searching for VoIP providers to initial selection to initial setup was all excellent with all contact points within Jive. After a month of no issues we suddenly started to have connection issues. We contacted Jive Tech Support and were provided with unbellievable support in determining the source of the problem and figuring out a solution. The issue ended up not being with any Jive service or provdied equipment but with our router. Tech support was extremely knowledgable and patient. The problem was corrected with minimal frustration and included an unexpected follow-up by Jive a day later to make sure everything was working correctly.

I have since submitted a few trouble tickets regarding additional setup feature information that I wasn't able to find answers to in their Knowledge Base and the responses were quick and helpful. I haven't had experience with any other VoIP providers, but if the service continues at the same level, I don't plan to.

None that I have come across

The experience with Jive has been 1000% thumbs up. Anyone that I have had to communicate with has been nothing less than professional, knowledgeable, efficient and extremely pleasant. I wish I had started with Jive when I first set up my VOIP system rather than having to switch to them. When I decided I needed to switch VOIP companies, I narrowed the choice down to a few companies, read the reviews and decided on Jive. It "jived" with the criteria I established for switching to a different VOIP company. Since I relied on client review, I felt I should add a review so it may help other clients make the right choice and "Get Jive". I'm glad I did.

Jive: Easy Service

Posted:
Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

The service is extremely easy to set up and install, especially when compared to a traditional in house PBX or small business system. Administering the system does not require a technology background. The price point makes it difficult to beat when adding up all the features. Lastly, the customer service is second to none. The representatives that I've had the pleasure to deal with have been very knowledgeable, professional and courteous.

The Bad:

No wireless conference phone offered.

Jive has been my telecom provider since the day I opened my business in January 2009. They were instrumental in helping me understand what my needs would be and in designing a system around my business. Shortly after signing up for the service a box showed up with the phones, I plugged them in and they worked. I've found that the system has a lot more features than what I am using so for anyone who needs all the bells and whistles, this is the solution. Also, the billing is very simple and straight forward. Unlike the help lines for some other companies there is always a friendly, easy to understand person on the other end of the line. I continue to recommend Jive to other business owners.

The Good:

Customer Service from all departments. Several different ways to accomplish tasks. The system is easy to navigate.

The Bad:

I don't have any cons

From the initial call to Jive for Sales till the day we cancelled our old provider I have been impressed with the customer service and response time.At first glance I saw all these reviews that give them such a high rating, I was skeptical. I believed that there is no way the service was going to be that good. We started because they gave us a trial period, we stayed because of the customer service and response time.Every department of Jive that I have worked with, provided me a quick answer to my question, detailed hands on or written instructions, they used whatever I needed at the time. This allowed me to learn to navigate the new system quickly. I use hard phones, soft phones and transfer in coming calls to my cell at times. Our phone plan was set up in an hour, I called for assistance 30 minuets later. After my initial question was answered, the representative said "I notice that your missing a sound bite in your phone plan. Do you need assistance with that? You can use one you've already created if you'd like." I missed putting the message in that spot and never noticed it, this was unrelated to the question I called in about. They helped me even when I didn't know I needed it. I am thankful a client didn't received a blank message.

Simply said, they are great. Everything happens promptly and completely to your satisfaction.

The Bad:

We would like to have the email version of the voice message transcribed as text. The wav file is great if no one is in your office or sits next to you. However, if you have no privacy, the text version is needed. If the choice is one or the other, I would take the wav file. However, both options are needed.

Outstanding Customer Support - 1st Class

Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

First class technical support Great sound quality Reliable

The Bad:

Upfront phone cost - Would be nice if able to work with existing standard phones

Overall, Jive communications is the best choice out there - by far. I have $200 Cisco router purchased at BestBuy a few years ago, and better than 3meg up/down internet speed and it has performed flawlessly. I've seen complaints of sound clipping elsewhere, but I can honestly say I think this has everything to do with router settings. If you want ANY VOIP phone to work, you need to have a router that provides QOS (Quality of Service) settings. What that means is that on the router, you can set the port the phone is plugged into to have priorty over the other ports. When someone is downloading a large file, or playing a game over the internet, the sound quality will remain consistent because the QOS setting ensures it always has enough bandwidth.I've been using Jive for 2.5 years and never experienced any problems that couldn't be quickly resolved. Most needs were things like making changes to how calls were routed, or adding/deleting users from the system. In cases where I forgot, a quick call to the Jive team resulted in action and resolution.I would highly recommnend Jive to anyone looking for a good small business solution.

We've been with them since early 2008 - excellent provider. They have added a lot of features over the years, same price though.Overall I would definitely recommend them, as we have had no problems for the last 4 years with our phones, and they have kept prices level.Features we use are the Auto Attendand (for the multiple extension routing), conference calls, and routing virtual extensions to people's mobile phone numbers.

The Good:

Ease of use, features, call quality, ability to use our existing phones

The Bad:

None

We switched from running our own phone server (I know, really geeky right!) to Jive last month. The process of switching was seamless! We got a free trial so I could set up and test things out for a while. I had our entire phone system (26 extensions, 6 conference rooms, call queues, etc) set up in a few hours inside Jive. We wanted to make sure we had feature parity with the current system. Jive delivered and then some.The thing that I can't emphasize enough is the Jive administration interface is so easy to use and straight forward. It basically makes me look like a phone system superhero. I can make really advanced dial plans with ease. With the old system any change was painful torture, but with Jive it's downright fun!The total cost of Jive is actually cheaper than what we were paying for our T1's + long distance. So I get the benefit of someone else worrying about the technical details of running the phone servers plus a lower monthly bill. It's a no-brainer!

The Good:

Spent days reading reviews and have found that the posit reviews were very accurate

The Bad:

none so far

I am a long-time Financial Services Recruiter that lives on the phone. There is no bigger decision for a small company like ours than phones. I researched every leading VOIP provider; read every review I could get my hands-on and focused only on the negative reviews to learn what the worst cases were. It seemed from Jive that as long as I purchased the Polycom phone from them with a solid router, I would be trouble free-I am! I have never written a review prior to this one. Jennifer helped me through the quote process and specifically in providing the exact set-up I needed (a main number and direct dial numbers for me and my partner). We seem like a much larger company with our customized auto-attendant. I wasn't able to totally update our greeting so I called customer service. The Tech was great and helped me with that and a few other minor questions I had. The best part is the voice is the clarity - truly amazing (first time with HD phones). It sounds as if we are in the room with our caller not on the phone. This is a huge step up over Vonage. The only thing I miss is a transcript of the calls from voicemail. I got very use to reading the message. It is a minor point and definitely not a make or break. I highly recommend Jive. Check out their videos on their website; only company that I found to be so transparent. I received exactly what I expected.

I strongly recommend using the Polycom phones that Jive recommends. They truly are a great phone paired with their service. We will be converting our main office to Jive as soon as our current contract runs out, then the entire company will be on Jive. The online administration interface is incredibly easy to with compared to traditional phone systems. I strongly recommend Jive to other small businesses out there.

Sales quotes in writing. Knowledgable staff - both sales and service. Deliver of service at the price that is promised.

The Bad:

From the 1st phone call with the sales associate I could tell there was something different about Jive. The other calls I made looking for pricing, phone hardware, etc. were all vague and non-specific with prices. They seemed to be in the business of "ballparking" everything. The Jive sales associate went over each feature in detail and a few minutes after completing the call I got a very professional quote via email showing all the pricing for the system we were looking for. It was their promise to me of the service and features we discussed in detail and in writing. It was refreshing to know just what the costs would be instead of the "guesstimates" I got from every other carrier I called.Our initial set-up went wrong from the beginning but the support technicians worked extremely hard to get everything up and running. We had some building issues, etc. but they plugged away until we got everything solved. I've not experienced support like Jive's EVER. They are very knowledgable about their systems and are always willing to work through whatever issue you are having (small or large) to completion. They are prompt in completing any research needed to troubleshoot or problem solve. I don't want it to sound like I've had to make a lot of service calls. I haven't, but this is my first time using VoIP and I needed some guidance in getting started, etc. The support technicians are the best! Based on the sales and service I highly recommend Jive.Our staff has enjoyed the "find me follow me" feature and the ability to design the dial plan was new to me but I have completely embraced it. We are looking forward to a long relationship with the Jive team.

The Good:

Great Customer service. It's easy to get someone on the phone whether it's sales, billing, or the important support department. We started with them a few years ago, none of our old cisco phones where SIP activated, they spent A LOT of time and patience getting our phones to configured, which says alot, because it is not their responsibility. We have gone from 2 lines to now 5. The dial plan manager is easy to set up and has lots of options.

The Bad:

the phone call report is delayed 1 day. so you can not see todays call reports. Their pricing is getting more in line with the other providers. Wish they would offer desktop fax capability.

They are reponsive to letting you know if there is going to be any maintenence. Over the 2+ years that we have been with them I can only think of 2or 3 outages and that lasted only a hour tops. Customer service is very helpful. Our current bandwith is on the low end, we are only using Business DSL with 5 workstations, 2 servers, and 4 VOIP phones and they quality is still pretty good, we never get any dropped calls, but sometimes its broken up. We are moving to Comcast Buiness Cable in winter and that should greatly improve quality. So the quiality is not really Jives fault but our low bandwidth, just make sure you have enough. Make sure your phones are SIP.

We were paying over $400 month phone bill for long distance and 1 phone line with no auto attendant with our local phone company. Then we found Jive and now we are only paying about $150 a month, have 3 phone lines, multiple extensions and a very detailed Auto Attendant Phone System put in place via Jive. When our clients call in, it sounds like they are calling into a fortune 500 company now. We have multiple options setup like press 1 to place an order, press 2 to check your status. It's just awesome!! We have never experienced any down time - the service is very clear voice quality and it is reliable!! So we just want to say that we are very happy customers and anyone having second thoughts about giving Viop phones a try - take the leap and give Get Jive a try because they are AWESOME and the best out there HANDS DOWN!!

I would recommend the company of Jive to anyone as well as their corded phones. The features that are possible are amazing. I feel that my small business has the capabilty of larger companies with transferring, holding in a que, ring groups, calling trees and so much more.

The Good:

I have been a long time user -- using JIVE and getting VOIP many many years ago. I initially was scared of VOIP and initially (being a novice) I made every mistake possible. Jive technical support calmly walked me through everything. It has been an incredible benefit to our firm which has several divisions and locations -- we are all connected on the projects we mutually work on. So very cool!

The Bad:

I carry a VOIP phone with me to conferences and on every business trip -- I am amazed how hotels are very accomodating. My business has blossomed because I can have staff anywhere. Our newest person is in Hawaii and we are constantly amazed -- she is not only one botton away, it sounds like she is in the next room. My firm just expanded with a new partnership. Our new partner decided he would work from his home and was going to use some local VOIP provider and I screamed "NO" -- check out JIVE. He is amazed at all the features and now is bringing staff in and having her work from one of our offices - giving us the receptionist we haven't had. I have no doubt part of it is because he believes we are really "with it" and on top of the technology curve.

We've been a happy Jive customer for 4 years. The setup was easy and they helped us configure our menu system to meet our unique routing needs. Some of our workers are remote and Customer Service is very helpful getting the phones to work nicely with home routers/firewalls. We've even been able to run a phone off a 4G connection. The upgraded system is a significant improvement. The admin is much easier to use and has added some nice new features. However, the upgrade process was a little problematic and took us a couple days to totally work through. Overall, we're very happy with Jive.

The customer service at Jive Communications is terrific. My company was in the process of merging accounts with another company as well as installing new phones of a different manufacturer than the ones I am used to working with. Jive's customer service - in particular Nick - were extremely helpful in getting me (a technologically challenged person) to install the phones. The only hitch was the paperwork needed to change the phone line of the new company. The forms for processes like incorporation of one existing account into another were sent via email and the first time around it was a bit confusing whether they needed those forms faxed or simply emailed back...for future reference you need only fill out the form on the computer and email it back.

We've been up for a week, so far we are 100% satisfied. We have offices in NY (6 lines) and SF (15 lines) and started by looking at Hosted VOIP that could use the Linksys/Cisco SPA phones we already owned from our previous system. Jive was one of these, their price was competitive, and their website was crystal clear about their service. We picked them, and the experience has been light years better than with our previous providers. Knowledgeable staff at every level, they answered every question without an extra phone call.

Exteremly professional. They have already provided me better support than my other VoIP provider and their quaility is as good or better for the same price. The GUI interface on their adminstration web site is a breeze to use to teak inbound call routing etc.

The Bad:

A little more than I wanted to pay, but the lower priced tiered services all appeared to be much lower tier providers. Their name. Jive just does not sound professional. I almost did not contact them because of the name.

Once I signed up, I received an email welcoming me to Jive. I received a call from the installation specialist who started asking questions so that he could setup my find me /follow me and voice mail options. If did not even realize that I was getting a find me/follow me serivce. Unfortunatly, I could not stay on the phone that point so he made an appointment with me for the next day. Just as my appointment alarm went off, my phone rang. It was Jive to finish my installation.The installation took less than 30 minutes total and that included me making some serious changes to my firewall. If I had not had the firewall that I have, we would have had my Bria softphone up and running in about 15 minutes including the time he took to configure my find me/follow me and voice mail.My other through up their hands attempting to configure Bria and left it to me.

The Bad:

We've had Jive for about 3 years and I honestly can't think of any cons.

When we decided to change our phone systems to VOIP, we looked into several companies. Jive won out in the competition with flying colors. Our sales rep, Candice, was very educated and passed that knowledge onto us in a friendly, non-forceful way. The number one thing that sold us on Jive was that they hosted everything for us on their end. No heavy equipment had to be installed or anything like that. Updating the phone system is a piece of cake ( like adding or changing an extension to a new user). Customer support is always a phone call away, and they ALWAYS solve my questions or problems within seconds. We have had Jive for over three years, and I couldn't be happier with our choice. Their customer service was the second thing that sold us on Jive, and I must say, it has not decreased from day one. With some companies, you have all the help in the world until you actually become a customer, but that is not the case with Jive. They have kept us happy every step along the way.

As a business owner I speak with companies all day long. I believe that Jive is a template for a great company with a great staff. Every moment of contact with the company I get to speak with competent professional employees that are obviously well trained and anxious to help me with anything. The phones and product are a progressive way to manage my business in this quick changing world of electronics. Programming is a breeze thanks to an hour long phone training appointment. The phones are smart! I would recommend anyone to this company to fill their need for a positive change in their phone needs! Thanks Jive...you're the best.Catherine B.

Jive has been absolutely wonderful. We would never go elsewhere. Their great prices and quality service is hard to beat. Our Jive representative has been nothing but the greatest help for us. We are constantly ordering new phones and it's almost as if they are shipped the second we call. They are so quick, and Jive makes it so we are up and running 5 minutes out of the box.

The Good:

Customer Service, Value, Ease of Use, Features, Quality, Feels like a "partnership" (i.e. My success feels genuinely important to them!), Never Pressured

The Bad:

Haven't found one yet in 4 years.

I couldn't imagine having my phone system with anyone else. I've been responsible for telecommunications for a few organizations over the years, and Jive's been my choice time and time again. At first, I thought I could outsmart everyone and build a calling system for virtual offices andamp; employees via a combination of various products out there (VoIP, virtual PBX, mobile phones, land lines, etc.). I should have just called Jive from the get go. Sales, set up, pricing, and all that good stuff was super easy and straight forward. Even though we work in a "virtual world", it's still nice to feel "connected", and the phone and system features do a great job doing that for my org. End users have plenty of options for making their phone work for them without needing an IT degree, and I can keep the rest all neat and tidy via the web admin. And if I get into a pickle, Jive's customer service is available to help! I can't imagine having to deal with one of the larger, well-known telephone or cable companies for their "customized" solutions ever again. Everything about Jive just WORKS. Let's face it - there are plenty of options out there that can do similar things. I stick with Jive because I know I'm going to get great service for the price be it technical quality, advice, or support. I have never had a better partner in my business than Jive. They get me. I really don't know how they do it. As long as they keep on doing it, though, I'm a very happy customer.(One fun fact. My org hosts large conferences and events, and we use our Jive system onsite to keep our expected level of customer service. One of the phones was damange during transit. Jive helped me try to find a local retailer from who I could by a VoIP replacement. When none surfaced with a satisfactory phone, they overnighted a new phone ready to work just like the old one! And, after we settled back into our offices, they contacted me to see if we needed help repairing the old one! Now THAT'S service.)

Service is great. Reliable, stable connection and voice quality is excellent. Great use of Polycomm phone.

The Bad:

Nothing material

I have been with Jive for nearly 4 years. Recently started a new account for our small company. Great service and flexibility. They seem able and willing to provide anything VOIP related that we need. Added a vanity toll free with no fuss, then helped me resolve how to handle the calls from that number in a very creative way. The responses have been very professional and prompt when needing information, support or answers. The pricing is fair. Recently, there was a system upgrade that provides amazingly superior voice quality and many enhanced features on the polycomm phone. It is a win-win relationship. I feel that there has been significant value provided by this vendor for my business. A terrific service.

Great customer service from the initial set-up.

I have never had a negative associated with the Jive system.

Since I have not had another VOIP phone, I don't have anything to compare it to. However, I've had the Jive system for almost 3 years and I don't see how it could be any better. I really never think of my Jive system as being Internet based. It's just my phone and it always works great.

Excellent customer service, tech support very friendly and willing to teach you how to utilize and customize your system or do it for you. Price is per line and cheap and system is easy to use and install.

if you utilize tech support after hours there is a charge

This system is great and the employees that work there are very friendly. There have been a few times that the power went out and I was concerned about losing calls for my business and the tech support quicky forwarded the lines to my cell phone. there system is easy to manipulate for whatever your needs and i can now utilize my clients needs from home or my office. Their company has allowed me to accomplish much more in the day being a working mother and business owner!

The sound quality on the HD Voice is great. Plenty of features. Personalized service. Good Follow up and follow through

The Bad:

Don't go cheap on the phone. We tried a low quality phone and it did not work well. We upgraded to the Polycom HD voice and it has been great.

Jive Communications has been great. From the beginning, we had a very good account represenative that helped us make the switch and save money. We did start off with a low quality phone and we had some latency issues. However, since we upgraded to the polycom HD voice, everything has worked great. Jive has been really easy to work with. The technical team helped us set up the web interface and design our voice mail systems for sales, customer service etc. Because if their training, it is very easy to use. I would highly recommend Jive communications to anyone looking for VOIP Service.

We dont like the voice attendant but it isnt a big deal. There have been mistakes or confusion when we add a phone and phone number but it is always promptly and easily handled.

Get Jive was recommended by an IT company we used at one point. Their price is right. They have always been reliable, and I can always get good support when I need it.

Jive has been a great partner to our organization. We have especially enjoyed the extreme flexibility and multiple auto attendants available within the system.

The Good:

I love the portal to manage my company call system on its own and their customer support is absolutely top notch.

The Bad:

Not all features of the Polycom phone can be utilized but who cares.

I found Jive after searching for VOIP phones over two years ago. I was enamored with their straightforward pricing and the support I got from the sales team. They were honest with me the whole time. They told me I could buy my phones from anywhere and they would help set me up but by paying a bit more for them through their service they would ship to me ready to go. And they worked right out of the box.I can't say enough about Jive and the relationship we have with them. Would highly recommend them to anyone.

We transitioned to JIVE from another Voip company and have been very pleased with the change. The customer service is superb and they offer a lot more features. The price is comparable to other companies and the user interface is fantastic!Considering our internet speeds and reliability, the sound quality is very good and better than with our previous Voip provider, but it does still break up occasionally.

Reliable is a great word to sum up Jive!

The Good:

Reliable is a great word to sum up Jive! Expectations are met or exceeded as if there are any issues they are quickly resolved within a 24 hr period, most times sooner. System performs well, sounds great, and is very reliable. Love JIVE!!

The Bad:

I gave features a 4 star as Jive has every feature we would want, but there may be a feature they do not have that I do not know about...doubt it but just in case.

I really was in a delima when I had to choose a voip phone service for my company. I had just finished dealing with the local telephone company and the internal connections in the office and wires everywhere and was afraid the voip service would be worse than my local phone company....although I through our local company was horrible. I talked to a lot of people, checked out a number of sites and, actually, this site or one like it helped me make my decision to go with Jive. I knew they were a smaller company and that made me a little anxious but decided to go with them. Since then I have had as many as 10 phones on the system with them, with music on hold, a receptionist phone to as few as two phones and the service was and is the same.....Excellent!! They are quick to respond to any issues. They are responsive if I had any issues or questions on a bill. They gave me good service, professional treatment, and most important of all my phones worked as they were supposed to. I would not switch to any other service even if they gave it to me for free. Jive charges a truly fair fee for their services, which I do think is below most others. I can't say enough about this company!! They give what they promise and more. What a concept in today's market place....getting exactly what you pay for and more!

Jive has been awesome so far! Keep up with the good work!

Call Quality, Customer Service, Web interface, Ease of use

The Bad:

Price

I signed up with Jive back in October 2008. As one could imagine, there have been some bumps over the years and service hasn't always been spotless. But, Jive has always been fantastic and we've stayed with them for a reason. I would estimate that since I signed up, Jive has had an uptime of 99% or better. Jive has also been very active in upgrading their services. The current online interface is almost too easy to use and it's kind of fun to set up my own call paths. Of course, I can always call and have them set it up, but the graphical interface allows me to conceptualize the call path and do pretty cool stuff with our phone system. Their staff is always fantastic and they put forth effort to resolve problems quickly.Over the years, I have explored other options and providers. I've signed up for demo accounts and tested out other services. There is no doubt that some services are cheaper. Jive's pricing structure includes virtually unlimited access to all of their features while other providers may take an al la carte approach. My office does not use many of the features available to us, and as a result could save a few bucks with an al la carte provider. However, these other services seem unrefined compared with the online functionality of Jive.I would love to see a click-to-call feature in the near future and also a way to record conversations through the online interface. Maybe even a way to transfer and manage calls through a web application.I have recommended jive to several people.

Overall, I recommend Jive

The Good:

I love the call editor and the flexibility to manage my call flows. The phones I got from Jive are great. Customer service has usually been great.

The Bad:

Every so often, I get garbled sound, either receiving or sending, depending on who's speaking. I have no idea if this is Jive's fault or my Internet service. It never lasts more than 2-3 seconds, so usually it doesn't disrupt my call. I don't know if this is common or not to VOIP. Also: I really wish I could block certain numbers, but I can't.

Overall, I recommend Jive. For the flexibility and price, it's definitely been worth it for my business. I would definitely recommend it to another colleague.

We will be migratin our other offices over to Jive.

We've been using Jive for a couple of months in one of our 8 locations in the US after our traditional PBX died. We wanted to try out VoIP to reduce our hardware and maintenance costs and on the reccomendation of a former colleague that had used other VoIP carriers and switched, we chose Jive. So far, the service and features have been great. We're very satisfied with the service and pricing. We will be migratin our other offices over to Jive.

HAD TO REBOOT PHONES A COUPLE OF TIMES...REALLY WASN'T A HASSLE...PROBLEM WAS RESOLVED...

I learned about this comapny through another consumer when I was setting up our office in December of 2008. We have been with this company since January 2009. This was best decision we could've made. The system has great features. I was able to relocate my phone to my home office. Everything works as if I was sitting in the office itself. This is a really cool system. WHY PAY MORE TO THOSE OTHER COMPANIES WHEN YOU CAN PAY LESS AND HAVE MORE FEATURES AT THE SAME TIME. CHOOSE JIVE, I PROMISE YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!

We are very happy with our decision to go with Jive. We started 1 year ago and use Jive in 3 locations in 2 states. Great to communicate with each other with just a 4 digit extension and no long distance charges. The quality of the equipment (25 phones) is excellent and we have not experienced any issues with the hardware. Tech support is quick, friendly and helpful. The cost of the equipment was easily paid for this year with the savings over our old phone system. I would recommend Jive to a friend.

The Good:

Online Control Panel that let's you configure the system to your liking. Great Sound Quality.

The Bad:

Can't Dial Phone from computer, although I understand this will be an added feature soon.

When I started my business 4 years ago I knew that I wanted a VOIP system similar to what I was used to when I left the large multi-national company I was working for. I also knew that I didn't have the resources to pay for that system.That's what I love about JIVE! All of those same 'big boy' features for a fraction of the cost. When I was shopping around for different services, those BIG PLANS would have cost me upwards of $2,000 just to have set up, and then the monthly fees were in the hundreds.With Jive you get the same phone with the same features with the same scalability for just a couple of hundred to set up and a super low monthly fee (which is even less than the standard land line from the phone company).Get Jive! Their name says it all...

Excellent call quality, extreme reliability, excellent fast support.

The Bad:

As a small business owner, having the appearance and presence of a large and professional organization is very appealing. Using Jive phones in multiple businesses has helped us achieve just that while giving us the ability to focus our attention on providing customers the support they deserve. The Jive system is extremely reliable, the call quality is clear, and best of all it gives us global reach from literally anywhere.The few times we have needed support, it was provided very quickly and our issues were solved. The phones are incredibly easy to set-up. Custom Dialing plans also made our lives easier as those were very easy for us to create and adjust on the fly.Based on my experience over the last 2 years with Jive Communications I would recommend this system to anyone looking to start up quickly.

The Good:

Excellent Quality. Great Sound. Easy Setup. No hidden fees. Customer service is responsive and competent.

The Bad:

Every now and then (a couple of times per year), the phones need to be rebooted. It takes about 1 minute. No big deal. Also, we had to purchase our phones up front. Some providers will finance phones over the course of a contract.

We switched to JIVE housted PBX about 2 years ago. After some initial, minor issues, our phones have been working well. It is very important that you have decent internet bandwidth and quality Cat 5 or Cat 6 cabling as these phones operate over the same network as your computers. We chose the Polycom 550 phones which are well made and have a lot of great features.Jive offers headache free phone service. There is no maintenance or repair needed as the PBX is hosted. I highly recommend JIVE to all small businesses.

Jive provides great customer support and their products work flawlessly. It is a no brainer. I have a law firm in New York City and we started using Jive a few years ago after we got fed up with Verizon. We have never looked back. We have 7 phones now. One of our employees is a mom who works from home and she has a Jive phone and we call her from the office - it is like she is here in the office. Also her clients can call the firm and press her extension number and it is like she is here in the office. It gives you flexibility to have remote workers. Also, I love the emails voice mail feature - whenever I get a voicemail at the office, it automatically gets emailed to my iphone so i never miss anything. I highly recommend Jive. They also have a great online system that lets you control your phone system and set call forwarding and messaging functions.

Great service and great price.

The Bad:

None.

I have been a happy Jive Communications customer for over two years. I run two businesses out of my home and have a home line, two business lines with roll-overs and two different toll-free numbers. I had been paying Verizon about $350 per month for this service. My bill with Jive is slightly less than $100 a month. I did have to buy some VOIP phones at several hundred dollars each, but that cost was recovered in the first few months. When you call Jive about anything you quickly get a person who can, and wants to, help you. So untypical of most telephone companies. I'm a very happy Jive customer.

When we switched to Jive they were very responsive to the problems we had been having

The Good:

Reliable and helpful customer service. Great equiptment that is easy to use.

The Bad:

Needed some tweaking of bandwidth settings to get started and still get some cutting out on calls if we're maxing our bandwidth - but NOTHING like we used to.

After a string of really bad office phone systems, we knew we had to make a change. When we switched to Jive they were very responsive to the problems we had been having and worked with us to make sure we would no longer have the static and interference that plagued our calls in the past. Customer service and technical support were always available to help us and stayed on the line with us as we tried to work out the bugs with our internet provider. Jive has also allowed us to keep offices in two separate states and get ahold of one another by just dialing an extension.

I have been using Jive for 2 years and have had no problems. The feature set is more inclusive than some systems. Having a conference bridge included is a big deal for us. They also just released a new web interface that lets you have incredible flexibility over how the entire system operates. We have no office and are able to seamlessly link a group of people with desk phones and cell phones. Our customers have no idea that we are all working in separate offices.

Well pleased with the switch (were using Qwest with an old Panasomic PBX). The reports are very useful for analyzing calls - I probably use those every few days to check out my employees and numbers.

Good features. Cheapest game in town.

The Bad:

Really bad reliability, they're down a lot (like right now) and have poor sound quality.

I switched from Aptela to save money....what a mistake that was, now I have to go switch again :( Save yourself the hassle and go with a quality provider. Tried calling customer service and got a busy signal?!? You get what you pay for.

Terrific service

The Good:

- They were happy to use my existing IP phones (Polycom 550s), no problems switching - Got a new number for me right away - Calls sound great, auto-attendant does just what I want it to - support is top-notch

The Bad:

- Took almost 3 weeks to port the number (I hear that's pretty common, but still!)

I was nervous, but this was a great move. Jive is a great company to work with. The support team is great (all local, sound like they're in the midwest somewhere), and they'll spend as much time as you need getting everything fine-tuned to what you need.

The Bad:

1.andnbsp; Lack of good manual for phone and setup2.andnbsp; Wait time forandnbsp; technical support3.andnbsp; Wait time for 1-800 number

I have been very pleased with the friendliness of the personel at Jive Communications and the sincerity they've shown in obtaining me as a customer at Jive. I rated quality of service 4/5 because usually when I call with a question I have to wait or have them call back in about 15-20 minutes in response to my question, which isn't a huge deal. However, when I finally do touch base with them the service is good and the people seem friendly. The Polycom phones I ordered are simple enough to use. I wouldn't mind having more volume control in the handset but keep in mind that I am hearing impaired and own an Audiology practice that works with hearing impaired individuals so I am rather picky regarding volume control. The phone is easy enough to use but i would have liked to receive a more thorough instruction manual for the phone because I feel the electronic .pdf manual Jive e-mails you is too simple and doesn't explain all the features of the phone well enough. Additionally, I would have appreciated a schematic as to how the phones work with a computer network. I didn't realize that every phone that is ordered has to plug into the router directly. Therefore if you are ordering more than 2 phones make sure you plan to place your router in the center of the office and pre-plan to have the office wired as needed. I started to get nervouse after I received my Jive phones because I then proceeded to shop for internet service. The difficulty with shopping for internet is that most providers want to "bundle" their phone and internet, which can kick up the price. Phone companies don't seem adjusted to the idea that you can get phone service from anyone when using VOIP. I ended up getting a DSL line from Frontier Communications. Frontier gives you 1 analog line with a DSL internet connection, which is fine because I needed an analog line for the fax line and credit card machine. You can't use either with VOIP unless you're using web-based fax or credit card processing, which has its limitations as well. I will monitor as time goes on to determine whether I have chosen the most cost-effective route for phone and internet. It was amazingly simple to set up the phones. Basically I plugged them into the router and they just worked...just iike my MAC computers!I was able to get the phone numbers I requested without any difficulty but it took Jive a few weeks to confirm the availability of my 1-800 number so I would recommend that if you are opening a new business and seeking service from Jive that you begin the process at least 1 month before opening. This is about all I have to share regarding Jive. Hope this is a helpful review. I don't have much to say regarding call quality since I havent't had the phones long enough. However, keep in mind that if you have 1 analog line in the office and the internet shuts down you can always temporarily forward your VOIP phone number to the analog line so you have a working phone in your office.

JIve Review

Re: Jive Communications

Posted:
Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

Great phone system. I've had the service over a month with absolutely no issues. Lot's of features packed into what you pay for and the people over at Jive are just great to work with. I've talked to two of the technicians so far. American, english speaking guys that are knowledgeable and quick to answer all the questions that I had. The service quality is very good as well, I can't hear any degradation between this and your typical run of the mill switched phone service.

The Bad:

The only con that I would give them is that they should provide more upfront training on how to use the features on their more advanced phones. Most of this is available in the manufacturers manual for the phone, but that's not sent with the phone and no one mentioned it was available on their website.

Excellent Phone Service

Jive Communications: VoIP to meet our needs

Posted:
Sound Quality Reliability Features Customer Service Price Overall User Rating
The Good:

Phones are easy to use. andnbsp;Online account manager is easy to use. andnbsp;Available features are just what we need. andnbsp;If there isn't a feature available that we were use to on our old system, Jive's customer service staff has been able to provide us with a work around most of the time. andnbsp;Jive's customer service staff is wonderful. andnbsp;Anytime I have called in they have helped me and even after having to call them maybe 3 or 4 times in a row, they are still happy to help.

The Bad:

At first we experienced some line noise but that cleared up. andnbsp;We had to contact Jive to make sure our toll free number was terminating to our auto attendant after our toll free number was ported over to them. andnbsp;This resulted in our toll free number not being available to our customers, not good. andnbsp;Communication on the status of service changes (i.e. porting of numbers) could be better. andnbsp;There is a lack of user guide type documentation (i.e. online account manager, voice mail system, etc.).andnbsp;

We were needing to find a VoIP phone service that could meet our specific needs and we believe we have found it. We were spending a large amount of money monthly trying to use and maintain our own Cisco phone system. Having to deal with local and long distance phone carriers is never fun. On top of that we didn't have the Cisco certified staff available that could maintain the equipment we had. Bitting the bullet and searching for a VoIP provider was initially nerve racking but it really smoothed out once we spoke with Jive. They provided us with demo equipment and reassured us the transition would be smooth. They were right. They even let us test the system extensively with a good money back guarantee, just in case we ran into issue that we didn't like. We have been using the system now for over a month. The last phase is to cut all ties to our local and long distance phone carriers and see the savings.

Jive Communications: Happy with Jive

Voip phone systems have more potential for issues then traditional copper wires.andnbsp;andnbsp; More things can go wrong, quality can suffer

We have been very happy with Jive. Just a warning about doing VOIP, you will have hickups. You will need to have smart people at your business to solve some problems. Jive has been great, we have things smoothed out nicely now after a couple months of working out the kinks.

Excellent call quality.andnbsp; Customer service is very helpful.andnbsp; Using the online account manager for changing extensions, and phone system settings is very easy and useful.

The Bad:

Took a little longer than I would have liked to be up and running.andnbsp; I had to call customer service on 3 separateandnbsp;occasions to get some kinks worked out.

The ordering process was very easy, and my sales rep was very helpful. It took a little longer than I expected for my account to be esatablished, and for my phones to arrive, but it was worth the wait. I would allow about 10 business days for your phones to be up and running. Once I received all 10 phones, I plugged them in and I was fully operational in minutes. The equipment is excellent, and the phone quality I would rate as better than a POTS line. I am using a T1 internet connection with 10 phones, and we usually have about 5 simultaneous calls. Never had a glitch.

Jive is the best business VOIP!I am so glad I found Jive Communications for our business VOIP. They were recommended to me by a techie whom I trust and I also found them top-rated on this website. I couldn't be any happier with their company, customer service, phone system andamp; features, tech support and price. At every step of the way Jive has been truly awesome to work with and I couldn't ask for anything more. I wish every partner / vendor of ours was as good as Jive.Thank goodness Jive was our first choice and we didn't have to suffer with other business VOIP providers, like many others have before they found Jive. Save yourself the grief and go with Jive right away like we did. It was one of the best choices we've ever made!

The transition was seamless, the service and tech support is right on the mark and the telephone equipment and call quality is amazing.

Great Job!After having two mierable experiences with other providers, I found this site and noticed that Jive had the best reviews. I called them up and they said they could do everything I was asking for. Of course, I was very skeptical considering my experiences. However, I decided to take the plunge. On the first day of service, Jive had my phones working exactly the way I wanted. This after going almost five months of no phone service because the previous two providers couldn't get my phones working. Even better, Jive is cheaper than the previous two providers

JIVE A+I tried 2 other companies prior- and was about to give up entirely on VOIP due to QOS issues. I use the Polycom 650 with the HD voice- and I immediately noticed an improvement over the other providers. I have an extra phone at the home office- that I always catch my wife on because talking is actually more enjoyable with these phones and JIVE. Great customer service by people who actually know what they are doing! They are responsive and of the 50+ vendors I work with on a regular basis I can honestly say they are on the top of the list- one part of my operation I don't have to worry about anymore. 6 months and looking forward to many more.

make sure your infrastructure can support VOIP phones (T1 lines are great, but cabling has to be able to support it).

If everything was this easy...I have used Jive's VoIP for my Real Estate business, in my home office (which I work primarily) for about 3 months. It was the simplest, most cost effective solution to all my needs. I was able to set it up to handle both my business and personal calls but I am still networked to my office. Jive was actually plug andamp; play. I so enjoy having the freedom to call anyone anywhere without hesitation of cost or minutes. My favorite feature with Jive is having my voicemails emailed. In my business not having to dictate notes for legal reasons (print the email andamp; file), all my documentation is there. What a huge time saver. In addition to not having to sit on the handset and listen. The staff @ Jive have answered every silly question I have had in a timely manner. Love it. Would highly reccomend.

Jive voip service gave us numerous features we didn't even know existed, saved us a ton of money, and they have been extremely helpful and willing to assist me and my staff whenever we ask. Very knowledgeable. I was a former Vonage business customer and there is no comparison. Jive is able to give attention whenever needed and they understand business networks. I left Vonage after being in a dead-end customer service call with someone who was just learning English. Anyway, the guys at Jive understood what my business needed and I thank them for that.

So glad I switchedWe had an IP phone system that ran off a server in our office. The system cost us something around $14K, and then about $500 per month. We switched to Jive and we now have more features, better phones, we don't have to deal with hardware or software, and it's a fraction of the price. The fraction is about 1/5. And it's been working great. Not only has the performance of the system been great but Jive's customer service has been awesome as well. By email or phone we've been treated great and they've responded to every question or request we've had in very little time, if not immediately.

Even when it's not their problem (internet connection, etc), they're quick to work with us to make our experience the best it can be. Since most providers are pretty homogeneous when it comes to price and features, go with the company that has the best customer service. For us, that's been Jive Communications, hands down. I'd recommend them to anyone.

Superb ProviderI have used up to 4 systems for my company from Jive Communications. We rely heavily on quality phone service since we are making sales calls for a high-end product and do the greatest majority of our business over the phone. We are extremely mobile due to trade show business, and we recently had to move business locations. Having Jive has made this transition effortless, and works extremely well for our business model. They have ample features for all of our needs, the sound quality has been remarkably good and consistent; with such a low price I do not plan to make any changes and have been most satisfied with Jive's stellar customer service and timely response to all of our inquiries.

Jive has been great!We've had VOIP through Jive since December 2006 and it's been great! The flexibility of having my "office phone" anywhere I go is really helpful, and having my voicemail delivered via email is a lifesaver. The ability to have virtual extensions dial key partners that work offsite is a real bonus. It's allowed me to seamlessly integrate vendors that work directly with my customers, transparently adding virtual "divisions" to our company. Setup was quick and easy and call quality has generally been good. Jive has always been quick to respond to customer service requests. My one small gripe is that I don't have access to a web interface to reroute calls or change settings; I've been told that's coming. Most users won't care about that, but I like to tweak. All in all, I've been very impressed with Jive
