Charles Aylwin 8x8 Solutions

To meet the growing demand for cloud-based unified communications, contact centre and collaboration solutions, 8×8 Solutions, is looking for new UK channel partners.

“Following our acquisition by 8×8 we are investing in a recruiting programme to grow our channel team,” said Charles Aylwin, Director, Channel and Public Sector for 8×8 Solutions. “As well as looking for partners with an established pedigree in the voice space, we are also keen to talk to partners who have yet to look closely at the significant revenue streams available from cloud-based communications.”

8×8 is hosting two channel recruitment days on Wed 11 June and Wed 18 June at the Williams F1 Conference Centre in Oxfordshire which will include a tour of the Williams Grand Prix collection. The dates of additional channel recruitment days will be announced shortly.

“The agenda for each day will aim to give attendees a comprehensive understanding of who we are and our proven ability to help our channel partners increase their revenues. By partnering with 8×8 they can improve their bottom line through the delivery of hosted business telephony systems that allow businesses of all sizes across all sectors, to take advantage of the benefits of cloud-based communications,” explained Aylwin.

“One of the key things that sets us apart from other vendors in this space is our commitment to making sure that our channel partners receive the highest level of training, importantly, at no cost to themselves. Our training gives them the knowledge and expertise to help them close every potential sales opportunity and that’s a win-win situation for everyone,” added Aylwin.

“Voice over IP (VoIP) and unified communications (UC) services are forecast, by Infonetics Research, to grow from $68 billion to $88 billion by 2018. By increasing our channel partner base we are ensuring that both 8×8 and its partners successfully capture a slice of this growing revenue pie!” concluded Aylwin.
