8x8 Solutions Accepted As Supplier On UK G-Cloud 5 Framework

To help further drive adoption of Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud-based unified communications solutions within the public sector, 8x8 Solutions, the UK arm of 8x8 Inc. (NASDAQ: EGHT), today announced that it has been accepted as a supplier by the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) on the CCS’ recently announced G-Cloud 5 framework. G-Cloud is a UK Government initiative to encourage the adoption of cloud services across the whole of the public sector.

“Our proven, reliable and secure cloud-based unified communications, virtual contact centre and collaboration solutions now appear under the SaaS category of G-Cloud 5’s CloudStore, online marketplace,” said Kevin Scott-Cowell, CEO, 8x8 Solutions. “This will help potential customers across the public sector to quickly and easily identify which of our easy to use, cloud-based, managed services will best suit their individual business communications needs. The important thing is, that they can fund deployment out of their operational budgets.”

8x8’s hosted business VoIP solution allows public sector organisations to quickly, easily and safely move their phone systems to the cloud, giving them access to not just a phone and fax service that delivers more functionality than a traditional hardware PBX, but access to online meetings via web and video conferencing plus integrated call centre capabilities at the same time as delivering flexibility and agility through 8x8’s mobile apps.

Additionally, for a public sector organisation which understands the financial and functionality benefits that could be achieved by switching from its existing on-premise VoIP provider, 8x8 can offer a migration path, which utilises the organisation’s existing infrastructure, to 8x8’s hosted cloud-based VoIP solution.

By unifying business communications in the cloud on 8x8’s communications platform, public sector organisations can improve internal communication and collaboration between employees, regardless of their location, to significantly raise levels of productivity and efficiency.
