Multiply the Possibilities: Five Top 8x8 Blog Posts for 2016

Season’s Greetings!  The year is coming to an end, and we wanted to remind you of the top 8x8 blog posts of 2016.

#1) The Five-Timers Club: 8x8 Named a Leader in UCaaS by Gartner for the Fifth Consecutive Year  by Vik Verma, CEO  

As a technology provider, vision is an incredibly important element in why customers ultimately decide to do business with you. Enterprises want to know that you have a clear vision for the future and how technology trends will impact what you offer. Without that vision, companies may end up implementing a system that doesn’t integrate well, doesn’t scale or becomes outdated very quickly.  However, this vision cannot be limited to just technology. It also needs to be tied to societal and generational trends that impact our workplace.  Read more…

#2) The March to True Globalization by Bryan Martin, CTO

Going global is more than just flipping a switch to expand into new locations and enter new markets. Companies need to figure out how and where to set up offices, hire local talent and procure new systems to ensure employees are productive and able to connect with customers and conduct business from day one. There are also local and state government barriers to contend with, such as labor and tax laws, and the barriers get exponentially more challenging for every new market entered.  Read more…

#3) No one on the other end of the line? New customers could be left out in the cold by Kevin-Scott Cowell, MD, UK

how would you feel if you eventually convinced a customer to come to your company or store to purchase a product but they were greeted with an empty room? Or they called in to buy something over the phone but couldn’t reach anyone on the other end of the line?  And then they turn around and call your competitor. That’s precisely what happens to one in five people who call a business, according to new research we launched today. We surveyed 2,000 British consumers to find out what challenges they faced when trying to speak to a company on the phone.  Read more…

#4) Revealed! Top Customer Pain Points for Video Conferencing & Call Center by Neha Mirchandani

We surveyed almost 200 attendees to uncover what they find most frustrating about video conferencing and call center experiences. The survey revealed some interesting insights around 3 key questions we asked a random selection of show attendees. Read more…

  • What worries you most about having communication services in the cloud?
  • What do you find most annoying about call center interactions?
  • What do you find most annoying about video conferencing?

#5) Channel: Top 3 Considerations for Choosing a Cloud Provider by Carlos Roman

Assuming you are now on board and convinced that building a cloud practice is in your best interest, this blog offers a guide for selecting the right cloud provider to partner with to solve your customer’s biggest technology challenges. Without knowing where to begin or what considerations to focus your attention on, how do you select the one/s that will weather the test of time?  The good news is that no matter what cloud arena you are investigating (IaaS, PaaS, UCaaS, etc.) they all have the same criteria when selecting your go-to-market cloud provider.  Read more…

2020 Buyers Guide Business Continuity

 
1.) 
Eckoh

CallGuard Remote
A flexible way to take secure, PCI DSS compliant payments from home or remote locations. It’s quick to deploy needs no changes to processes or systems.

CallGuard Remote prevents agents from seeing, hearing or recording card details so, the agent, their screen, and any call recordings are removed from the scope of PCI DSS.

This simple approach means the customer effectively types their own payment information into the agent’s payment screen, but with the card details being shielded from the agent’s view. It’s simple, and highly effective.
