Westcon signs new partnership with 8×8

Westcon has announced a new agreement with 8×8 to distribute its integrated cloud communications and contact centre solutions. The partnership becomes effective initially in the UK and Ireland this month, and provides Westcon’s partners with UCaaS and CCaaS public cloud solutions via a wholesale model.

John DeLozier, senior vice president and global channel chief at 8×8, said, “Westcon has an exemplary global track record delivering maximum value and success for its partners. We see great value partnering with the leading technology distributor as it is strategic to our channel-first efforts in the UK and Europe.

“As organisations shift to distributed workforces and an operate-from-anywhere model, the need for an integrated cloud communications and contact centre platform for enhanced employee and customer engagement is increasingly in demand. 8×8’s best-in-suite solutions combined with Westcon’s breadth of service and experience in key markets present an attractive value proposition to drive growth across the region.”

The 8×8 integrated cloud contact centre, voice communications, team chat and video meetings products help employees connect, collaborate and engage with colleagues and customers from anywhere.

Rene Klein, senior vice president, Westcon Europe, added, “We are delighted to have been appointed by 8×8 as a strategic partner in driving the growth of the company’s channel business in the UK and Ireland. 8×8’s excellent product offering will no doubt drive impressive results with our partner community.”
