Customer Satisfaction: Which Service Has the Happiest Customers?


RingCentral rates 4.2 / 5 on Capterra (928 reviews) and 3.9 / 5 on G2 (616 reviews). Users mainly value advanced texting, audio quality, and number porting. On the contrary, RingCentral occasionally does not alert customers to missed calls or voicemails.


Intermedia rates 4.8 / 5 on Capterra (76 reviews) and 4.4 / 5 on G2 (207 reviews). Users claimed to be happy across the board, but some did mention issues with the service’s SMS capabilities, as well as glitches in tracking inbound/outbound calls, and drops in quality.

Although Intermedia has significantly fewer reviews than RingCentral, it’s hard to argue against their overwhelmingly positive sentiment.

In order to determine which solution performed better with regard to customer satisfaction, we explored ratings and reviews on established portals — G2 and Capterra.
