Communications Solutions for

Cloud solutions are quickly becoming the preferred choice for government offices seeking cost effective ways to deploy and manage distributed phone systems and contact centres.

Agile and Affordable Government Cloud Solutions

Government faces a challenge to provide secure, compliant, collaborative unified communications, all while controlling or reducing spend.

8x8 provides compliant cloud solutions that meet demanding standards such as FISMA, FIPS and HIPAA. This helps staff focus on providing better, more economical services to their stakeholders.

We also provide an immediacy to communications that most other cloud providers can’t match. Our top tier data centres are strategically located across the globe. Calls are geo-routed to the closest available data centre. The result? Crystal clear connections. Superior call quality. Minimal latency, compared to our competitors.

8x8 Reliability

8x8’s cloud based SaaS communications solutions are delivered from mirrored, top-tier, fully resilient and state of the art Equinix data centres on the East and West Coasts of the United States. Each data centre is interconnected with private connections and connected to the Internet through multiple resilient links from Tier 1 and major Internet service providers, each one capable of handling traffic for the entire data centre.

When the EPA’s Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water hired us (OPP) to run its Safe Drinking Water Hotline, we had just a few weeks to deploy a new call center for them. 8x8’s cloud-based technology enabled us to meet the deadline. The hotline has been going strong ever since.
