Regus Selects 8x8 Enterprise Cloud Communications for Its Network of Global Business Centers Regus, the leading global workplace provider, has chosen 8x8 as its cloud-based enterprise communications provider. 8x8 was selected for its innovative technology roadmap, global presence, business mobility, call quality and robust delivery features to help them effectively and securely run their worldwide communication and collaboration service. Worldwide deployment The initial deployment of 8x8’s Enterprise Communications-as-a-Service (ECaaS) solution is planned across the U.S. and Europe. Following the initial deployment, 8x8 will continue to deploy its enterprise communications service to the rapidly growing number of Regus business centers 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. Companies like Google, Toshiba and GlaxoSmithKline choose Regus so that they can work flexibly and make their businesses more successful. Innovative communication and collaboration Andre Sharpe, Chief Information and Innovation Officer at Regus, said, “By partnering with 8x8, we can now offer our customers an innovative and cost effective communication and collaboration service. As a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader, 8x8 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 8x8 service across our global footprint.” Regus plans to significantly enhance their full-service communication and collaboration offerings through its new deal with 8x8. 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 8x8, Regus has ensured its customers have access to the most advanced enterprise communications tools to increase their business flexibility and productivity. A continuous communications experience Vik Verma, CEO of 8x8, said, “We are honored 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.” Regus’ customers will have access to world-class, enterprise-grade telephony that allows them to have a continuous communications experience, with the ability to seamlessly switch from chat, messaging and voice while roaming across multiple networks, such as 3G/4G LTE and Wi-Fi. Additionally, Regus clients will have the added flexibility to suit their personalized business needs, taking their communications service with them wherever they are in the world.
