CST selects 8x8 for business phone service solutions

Feb 01, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- CST, a provider of storage tanks and covers for food, mining, chemical and other applications, has selected 8x8, a provider of cloud communications solutions, for business phone service solutions to link its eight US locations.

According to 8x8, CST initially selected 8x8's Virtual Office hosted VoIP solution for its new global headquarters in Lenexa, Kan., a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri.

Currently, CST is using 8x8 services for all 80 lines at its headquarters and is in the process of transitioning its DeKalb, Illinois and Gardena, California facilities to 8x8, bringing the total number of extensions to 240. Over the next two years, CST plans to migrate four or five additional CST locations to 8x8 service, which will add another 400-500 extensions, said 8x8.

Once CST has finished upgrading its company-wide telephony system to 8x8, it plans to add 8x8 capabilities to increase employee productivity and responsiveness. One enhancement on the drawing board is Virtual Office Mobile, which extends the full suite of 8x8 Virtual Office services to the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

"Every month, more than 1,000 businesses turn to 8x8 to harness the power of our cloud communications solutions, including voice, video, data and mobile," said 8x8 Chairman and CEO Bryan Martin. "CST is prime example of how 8x8 empowers business communications so employees can be more productive and responsive. We look forward to helping CST grow its business." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
