About Zoom Phone

Zoom Phone is a VoIP solution designed to help businesses in education, finance, healthcare and government sectors connect and communicate with team members on a unified interface. It offers a central administrator portal, allowing managers to modify phone numbers, view call details and monitor call quality.

The platform supports an advanced encryption standard (AES) 256-bit algorithm that lets teams secure voice calls and media across various session initiation protocol (SIP) devices. Zoom Phone enables administrators to transfer, forward, record, block and hold calls using Android and iOS mobile applications. Additionally, teams can switch between voice and video conferencing, manage call queues and secure login via single sign-on.

The software that helped me work from home during the pandemic

I used zoom for the first time when I was working at a multi-finance company that requires us to use this software. What I then proceeded to my business, which required me to share every time with my reseller or dropshipper agent outside the city, about the presence of new products and receiving input from my agent. And it really helped me.

Pros

Zoom has been our main communication tool in reaching out to our sales agents in the business community. Before the pandemic or during the pandemic, I used zoom to interact with sales agents spread across several cities. Easy to use, and helps me to share our products with several sales agents such as resellers and dropshippers.

Cons

Not all of our agents are familiar with zoom, and sometimes they are still confused about using existing features. And I also had trouble sending files to our agent so I had to use email to do it.

Reasons for Switching to Zoom Phone

My previous job at a multi-finance company required us to switch to zoom

Virtual classes and meetings

Just like every software has its pros and cons this is a very good app that easy to use but if the cons are worked on it will even be greater. It's great for online meetings and classes because one can share their screen and the quality of both the audio and video is great.

Pros

I have been using Zoom since last year for both work meetings and online classes and what I loved most about it, is the fact that it doesn't use too much storage on the phone and you can use it on the go or anywhere you are. It's easy to use, you don't need special classes or lessons for you can understand how to use it.

Cons

It needs a great internet connection otherwise the quality of the call will reduce. Of course, the free license version although great still has a lot of limitations compared to the premium version like you can only have 100 people in the meeting and only for 40mins. Security

Reasons for Choosing Zoom Phone

It was easy to use. Accommodate a higher number of people than the other options. The registration process was shorter as well.

Reasons for Switching to Zoom Phone

The number of people at the conference affected the switch because Skype would only accommodate 50 on the free version whereas zoom would accommodate 100 people in the free version and 1000 people in the premium version. Zoom was a better fit for us as well because we were having frequent meetings and classes so it was easier.

Worst Support in the Industry!!

Their sales people will sell you the product and then abandon you to a process they don't explain well. If you ask for a white paper or steps you will be doing so you can make sure you will not slow up the process that request will be ignored. Then they will send you to an engineer who will run your through the configuration of the software so fast you will feel like you are at an Auction!! Once you have the phones provisioned and ported, I hope you don't want anything other than the default configuration, because getting help is a daySSSS long process, and when you get it it will be wrong.

Pros

It is hard to learn to use the online configuration tools, and the people who train you move too fast for you to remember anything

Cons

Zoom relies too much on automated call routing systems with too short of times allowed for responses. If you do not have several numbers at your fingertips, you will get disconnected before you can respond to the prompts. I needed support 30 hours ago, and I am STILL fighting to get anyone to support us.

Reasons for Switching to Zoom Phone

Because Intermedias Support was bad, but not nearly as bad as ZOOM. I wish we could go back!!

Zoom meeting, but from phone

It is a very helpful application that i have use it a lot while on-the-go and when i don't have my computer with me. It was a great experience for me.

Pros

Zoom Phone is very helpful for anyone that are constantly on-the-go but need to join the meeting session with client or colleague. It operate from my smartphone, which mean i don't need my laptop to launch the application. The audio quality always clear and i had never had problem with the audio.

Cons

I can't change the audio calls from using my phone carrier to be using the VOIP. It need to be setup before the call are made, and can not change it in the middle of the session. I had to cancel the session and join in it again using the VOIP option. I hope it can be change in the future.

Great Value Service

While there is much to be desire regarding their customer support, Zoom Phone offers a very acceptable product at a very good price. Zoom Phone somehow manages to be cheaper per month than their competitors while offering the same, if not better, technical features for their service. If you have any existing experience managing phone systems, including setting up call queues and IVR, you should have no trouble onboarding the service without much additional assistance. I would definitely recommend this service for the more experienced user.

Pros

My company was looking for a new digital phone service so that we could get rid of our outdated handset VOIP over LAN system. Not only does Zoom Phone offer a more robust set of calling, auto-attendant, and call queue services, it does so at a lower price than what we were previously paying our local provider. The call quality is very good, and the admin features allow you to customize how your organization receives, transfers, and processes incoming calls. While a very self-sufficient process, product onboarding is fairly painless for more technically savvy users. Zoom Phone offers both desktop and mobile application use, which makes it very accommodating for most types of user.

Cons

While the services is available at a great price, the overall customer support is extremely poor. Once we finalized our service contract, our salesperson was very unavailable to take any calls or emails regarding setup troubleshooting. There is a wiki available to help with service setup, but the knowledge base is fairly limited and not very thorough. Luckily, I was able to find a link to product service desk, and their technical team was able to assist after I filed a few different tickets regarding my issue.

Reasons for Choosing Zoom Phone

Zoom Phone has the best features for the best price.

Reasons for Switching to Zoom Phone

We needed a more updated set of features and wanted to lower our monthly cost.
