8x8, a provider of cloud-based IP telephony and unified communications products, today launched its suite of business communications services across Canada. The launch is the first in a series of expansions outside of the United States for 8x8.
Available immediately in most Canadian provinces, the 8x8 Virtual Office cloud communications suite provides small and medium businesses with hosted VoIP, contact center, unified communications, and videoconferencing services. Customers can select local phone numbers and virtual numbers from Canada, the United States, and around the world. Companies with locations in Canada and the United States can now have a single, virtual PBX enabling extension dialing with high-definition audio between international locations, all with no per minute charges. 8x8's Virtual Office also gives SMBs the option, at no additional cost, of extending those services to smartphones and tablets.
8x8's services will be delivered from its network of data centers in the US and Saskatchewan, Canada.
"8x8's cloud communications services are designed to provide the reliability, flexibility and scalability that Canadian companies need," said 8x8 chairman and CEO Bryan Martin. "More than 30,000 U.S. businesses use 8x8, and this expansion is a major first step toward providing SMBs worldwide with a cost-effective, enterprise-grade way to empower their communications."
