To meet the growing demand for cloud-based communications throughout the U.K., 8x8 (News - Alert) Solutions, the U.K./European arm of 8x8, Inc., has announced its new London office.


Officials with 8x8 Solutions said that the new Fenchurch Street premises will provide the company with additional and more central meeting and demo facilities to complement those of the company’s Aylesbury Head Office.

8x8 Solutions is the U.K./European section of 8x8, Inc., a provider of secure and reliable cloud-based unified communications and virtual contact centre solutions to more than 39,000 small, midsize and distributed enterprise organizations operating in over 40 countries across six continents.

“We are seeing a significant rise in interest in 8x8's cloud-based unified communications, contact center and collaboration services. This interest is being driven by the growing awareness of businesses, across all sizes and sectors, as to the substantial business benefits and competitive edge that cloud communications can deliver," said Kevin Scott-Cowell, CEO, 8x8 Solutions, in a statement.

Scott-Cowell said that the company’s decision to open an office in the city was clearly a good one as it has been closely followed by the announcement from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that the U.K.'s economy is growing faster than those of every other major developed country.

“With demand growing for our services, plus growing confidence in an improving economy, this really is an exciting time for 8x8 and its channel partners. We are working hard to make sure that we are able to take full advantage of the increasing business opportunities we are seeing,” he said.

Scott-Cowell said that 8x8 is extremely well placed to continue to deliver robust and secure cloud-based services, which allow the customers to improve productivity, efficiency, business agility, and deliver a great customer experience by enabling their employees to work smarter, all while reducing costs.

Recently, 8x8, Inc., a provider of cloud-based unified communications, contact center and collaboration solutions, announced the availability of a new, out-of-the-box integration with Zendesk's customer service platform that enhances the Customer Experience Management capabilities of the 8x8 Virtual Office cloud telephony and unified communications (UC) platform.
