The Pros

  • Around-the-Clock customer service: Previously, there had been concerns about the capabilities of the customer service department. However, the raise quality and to provide optimal coverage, eVoice now offers 24-hour US-based customer support. This includes a comprehensive online FAQ section and after-hours call routing.
  • Three easy-to-understand calling plans: Plans come in 300, 500, and 1000 minute increments and offer no cost 30-day trials (with limitations).
  • A user-friendly call interface: Each calling platform includes access to necessary features like toll-free calling numbers, call routing, US and Canadian local numbers, voicemail to text, multiple extensions, automated attendants, call recording, mobile applications, etc
  • Call conferencing: eVoice allows for conference calls of up to 95 participants. (beware that calls are charge per minute, per participant)

The Cons

  • Limitations on free trials: While each plan does technically offer a free trial, the trials for toll-free numbers are restricted to 855,866,877 and 888 numbers. Anyone wanting to use an 800-number will need to pay for a paid platform from the get go.
  • Limited features: As expected with most of the ‘basic’ PBX systems, eVoice only offers the most common calling features. Meaning that users will not have the option of call queuing, online faxing or web calling.
  • Troubles recording voice messages: In order to add recorded messages, users must first use a recording software (of their own choosing) and then upload their greeting into the eVoice system – or pay for a professional greeting.

Summary

FreedomVoice provides a fair amount of business enhancing features designed to help businesses strengthen their professional image, while optimizing efficiencies and driving strong customer satisfaction. The system is customizable, allowing users to tailor the solution to best meet their needs, and offers a greater degree of flexibility than many leading competitors.

On the downside, many potential customers are swayed by the higher than normal per-minute calling charges. Companies failing to closely monitor usage may find themselves unpleasantly surprised by costly bills at the end of the month. That combined with the limited availability of customer service may make it necessary to proceed with caution.
