GoToConnect Service ReviewThe best thing about the GoToConnect Communications is that all their technical support is US based. The quality, support and hardware provided by them can be sworn by according to many of their existing clients. There have been several glitches in the communication systems, but that is mostly during very bad weather. For example Hurricane Sandy managed to disrupt quite a bit of their clients telephones. But the technical support team is exemplary in that all clients are kept up to date with any issues. GoToConnect Communications has quite a few methods of providing enhanced support. They have dedicated accounts for receiving complaints, the technical representatives are available 24 hours a day and even on weekends and holidays, along with many of their system engineers and project managers. The services have proven to be very easy to setup, no technical knowledge required as their reps will talk you through all of the setup process.
The Verdict:The quality, features and price provide great value for money. Services from their competitors add up to almost double GoToConnect's prices when we took into account the way they bill and charge for additional lines. GoToConnect's services are great for businesses on the lookout for glitch free VoIP transfer and services.
