8X8 Revolutionizes Business Communications Industry with the Launch of Virtual Office Editions
8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT), the leading
provider of truly unified cloud
communications, today announced the launch of 8x8 (News - Alert) Virtual Office®
Editions. This new suite of products revolutionizes the business
communications industry by unifying cloud telephony, collaboration

"Siloed communications systems, such as telephony, team messaging, web
conferencing and contact centers, address only isolated functions and
segregate valuable business data from key decision makers. This slows
productivity, hampers collaboration and impacts customer satisfaction,"
said Vik Verma, CEO at 8x8. "Through our technology ownership and
innovation, 8x8 unifies these disparate systems on a single cloud
communications platform, ensuring companies can easily communicate,
collaborate and engage with employees and customers. In addition,
businesses can now finally glean valuable insights from every
interaction in real time, and unleash the collective power of the entire
organization at every connection."
