San Jose, CA, USA, Oct 30, 2019 -- Three technology providers -- 8x8, Inc. (NYSE: EGHT), Plantronics, Inc. ("Poly" – formerly Plantronics and Polycom) (NYSE: PLT) and ScanSource, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCSC) -- announced they are joining forces to help companies easily move away from legacy on-premises business communication systems to true cloud-based communication solutions.
The joint global program, named CloudFuel™, will accelerate the process of ensuring organizations have proven cloud technology to meet all of their needs across unified communications, collaboration and contact center
"For many years 8x8 has been helping businesses replace their legacy on-premises solutions to modernize their communications and increase service quality, system resiliency, IT agility and performance visibility all with a single cloud technology platform," said Vik Verma, CEO at 8x8. "Today’s announcement takes our relationships with ScanSource, a leading provider of technology products and solutions, and Poly, the leading phone equipment provider, to a new level, uniting industry leaders together with a joint purpose - to deliver cost effective, packaged programs that will enable countless organizations to easily and quickly take advantage of the cloud."
"Our previous on-premises telephony system could not provide the critical integrated contact center functionality we needed," said Bayard Carlin, Senior Director of Technical Operations at Colibri Group, a family of brands that provide learning solutions for licensed professionals in real estate, healthcare, and 22 other industries. "We moved to 8x8 for a single Unified Communications and Contact Center solution. I was impressed with how fast the switch-over took place and how seamless the project was from day one. We have realized 30 percent cost savings, and more importantly, we have less complexity and more functionality, including rich contact center analytics and an easier process for adding new agents or locations quickly."
"This strategic partnership between ScanSource, 8x8, and Poly enables our VARs to resell 8x8 cloud communication services aligned with their existing, preferred business model that allows them to own the customer relationship," said Mike Baur, Chairman and CEO at ScanSource, Inc. "This program will allow our VARs to manage the customer billings for the 8x8 and Poly solution, while also giving VARs the ability to add additional services that they provide."
"For years, Poly has been leading the charge helping our customers move from on-premises telephony to cloud-based communications," said Joe Burton, President and Chief Executive Officer at Poly. "With stellar partners like 8x8 and ScanSource, along with these new incentive programs, we will make the migration process to UCaaS as seamless as possible for our collective customers."
