8×8 has announced a global deal with Regus, a global workplace provider, to deploy its cloud-based enterprise communications service.
The initial deployment of 8×8’s Enterprise Communications-as-a-Service (ECaaS) solution is planned across the U.S. and Europe. Following the initial deployment, 8×8 will continue to deploy its enterprise communications service to the rapidly growing number of Regus business centres worldwide. Today, Regus operates out of over 2,500 locations across 106 countries and is an LSE listed company which recorded double-digit revenue growth during the first half of the year.
Andre Sharpe, Chief Information and Innovation Officer at Regus, said, “By partnering with 8×8, we can now offer our customers an innovative and cost effective communication and collaboration service. As a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader, 8×8 was a natural choice to give our customers the level of quality and service they expect from Regus. We have identified the first 140 sites, and thereafter we plan to roll-out 8×8 service across our global footprint.”
Regus plans to significantly enhance its full-service communication and collaboration offerings through its new deal with 8×8. Prior to moving to the cloud, Regus was unable to offer a business phone service with key features such as mobility, multi-channel communications and presence-enabled directories. By selecting 8×8, Regus has ensured its customers have access to the most advanced enterprise communications tools to increase their business flexibility and productivity.
Vik Verma, CEO of 8×8, said, “We are honoured to team with a business innovator like Regus to deliver our innovative ECaaS solution on a global scale to enable their customers to work more efficiently and flexibly anywhere in the world. Regus is leading the market by offering a continuous communications experience enabling their customers to be connected to their Regus office line anytime, anywhere.”
