8×8 has announced the formal launch of its services in the UK and Europe through recently acquired UK-based Voicenet Solutions, now operating as 8×8 Solutions.
The official launch of 8×8 Solutions was conducted today at an event for channel partners and press which was hosted by the company at Altitude 360° in London. During the event, 8×8 demonstrated its award-winning suite of cloud business phone service, unified communications and contact centre services which have been widely deployed throughout North America and offer the industry’s highest levels of security, reliability, availability and redundancy.
Unified Communications market research firm Wainhouse Research predicts the European UCaaS market will experience 36% CAGR over the next five years.
“By taking advantage of 8×8’s technological expertise and knowledge of cloud-based UC, 8×8 Solutions will be able to allay the security and reliability concerns of UK businesses and help them move their costly, out-dated traditional on-premise communications systems to cloud-based solutions with confidence,” said 8×8 Solutions CEO Kevin Scott-Cowell. “We look forward to working closely with our channel partners to deliver 8×8’s industry-leading UCaaS offerings to the UK and European markets.”
“Voicenet Solutions’ acquisition by 8×8 is very good news,” stated Barry Anns, Group Managing Director of du Pré plc, an established 8×8 Solutions’ channel partner. “We care passionately about our customers’ needs. 8×8’s proven cloud-based unified communication and collaboration services will put 8×8 Solutions and its partners in a position to deliver a market leading service with the flexibility to match future expectations. Working together, we will deliver cost effective, robust cloud-based communication solutions to improve the business efficiency, productivity and the bottom line of our existing and potential customers, which opens up exciting new opportunities.”
