London, UK, June, 2022 -- 8x8, Inc. (NYSE: EGHT), an integrated cloud communications platform provider, announced that the London Borough of Hounslow has deployed 8x8 XCaaS™ (eXperience Communications as a Service™) with 8x8 Voice for Microsoft Teams to support over 1,500 employees.
The London Borough of Hounslow provides community services to more than 270,000 residents, including services around healthcare, housing, and employment. Prior to 8x8, Hounslow Council struggled with old disparate communications solutions that lacked the capabilities needed to support the numerous business areas, particularly the contact centre, and required constant assistance from their support team to keep them running. As a result, Hounslow Council wanted to simplify both the communications and engagement solutions used by employees and residents, and move to a cloud-based solution that offered reliable service.
With 8x8 XCaaS and 8x8 Voice for Microsoft Teams, Hounslow Council has reduced costs and improved customer satisfaction using a single, integrated platform.
Mark Lumley, Director for Digital & IT at the London Borough of Hounslow, said, "We chose 8x8 XCaaS because of its single vendor, integrated cloud communications and contact centre platform, and integration with Microsoft Teams. While evaluating vendors, 8x8 stood out to us as a trustworthy partner, capable of delivering on our needs. Since deploying 8x8, we’ve increased efficiencies within our team and throughout the interactions with our communities, allowing us to fully and quickly serve our community."
Jamie Snaddon, Managing Director, EMEA at 8x8, Inc., said, "Our dedication to XCaaS platform innovation has meant that councils like Hounslow are able to unify employee and citizen experiences by eliminating operational silos and speeding information flows, allowing staff to be more agile and responsive to citizens’ needs. Additionally, 8x8 XCaaS provides a single integration framework making it easy to extend Microsoft Teams capabilities, allowing employees to continue providing exceptional services to citizens without missing a beat."
