Cloud Communications Ensures Continuity and Wellness

There’s never been a more important time for the channel community to care for customers.  Together, we can make an impact on a global scale. 8x8 is privileged to offer products and services that help support businesses and keep the global community connected and productive. 

In times such as these, where a sudden shift towards remote working is required, cloud-based collaboration solutions like 8x8 Video Meetings are ideal - a free, standalone service that’s easy to use, it’s a helpful tool in education and business settings in the event of school closures, event cancellations or the need to quickly implement virtual working and learning environments. The service is completely compatible with our fully featured enterprise 8x8 X Series, allowing customers to take advantage of 8x8’s one global cloud communications solution for voice, video, chat and contact center.

8x8 Video Meetings

We are working with universities, elementary schools and community associations to offer seamless communications so they can continue delivering virtual lesson plans and instruction.   We have the Florida Institute of Technology’s Parent Council using 8x8 Video Meetings. And, our own 8x8 CX Sr. Solutions Consultant, Frank Fuhram, a member of the Katonah Bedford Hills Volunteer Ambulance Corps (KBHVAC), recently trained the line officers on the service allowing them to continue vital training on ever-changing protocols from the CDC and County Health Organizations while not having to gather face-to-face.

Business must continue and 8x8 and our partner community can contribute in this time of need.

In the words of our CEO, Vikram Verma:  “We are seeing significant global adoption of our meetings platform, most recently in Italy with Teach From Home WeSchool bringing Italy’s Classrooms online with 8x8. We have chosen to offer it free to customers and non customers alike. Human interactions are central to how we live, work and play and now more than ever this is critical for business continuity. Additionally we are working with our customers to give them “bursting” capability to ensure they can get employees working remotely with no loss of business productivity rapidly. This is what we built our X series product suite to do: Virtual Office (work remote with mobile/softphone and collaboration); Virtual Contact Center (interface with customers seamlessly with remote agents), and Virtual Meetings and CPaaS to extend communication capabilities. People make the difference and we are fortunate to have the very best here at 8x8.  We have all come together to support our customers, partners and communities.”
