London, UK, June 15, 2020 -- 8x8, Inc. (NYSE: EGHT), an integrated cloud communications platform provider, announced LetsGetChecked, the at-home health testing and insights company, deployed 8x8 Contact Centre to continue the successful support of their COVID-19 home test kit services through its remote contact centres in Ireland and New York.
LetsGetChecked is a health insights company that allows consumers direct access to a wide range of testing options and clinical services from home.
In May, LetsGetChecked received FDA EUA-authorization for their new Sure-track test for COVID-19. The test was specifically designed to relieve pressure on over-stretched hospital services, frontline healthcare workers, and at-risk groups by offering convenient and secure results in 24 hours. Customer communication is central to its service delivery. LetsGetChecked provides oversight of the entire testing process including collection kit manufacturing, logistics, lab analysis and physician approval. These measures allow for superior patient care, communication, and guidance throughout the testing process.
In response to the surge in demand for COVID-19 testing kits, LetsGetChecked required a business communications and contact centre solution that offered efficient, outbound dialing functionality, and the ability to maintain timely post-order customer support. Support for remote agents was a key requirement.
