"The management and expense of maintaining numerous PBX phone systems and services with more than 20 different competitive local exchange carriers had become exorbitant," said Howard. "The more locations we opened up, the more fragmented we became, leading to diminished communication and productivity. With the 8x8 Virtual Office solution, all of our offices will now be connected under a single, cloud-based phone system at a fraction of what we were spending previously."
According to Howard, Irving Materials expects to cut its previous telecommunications expense by 60% or more, which will result in six figure cost savings each year. 8x8's cloud based solution will also enable Irving to do away with other devices, such as call recording equipment, in addition to on premise PBX hardware.
"Irving Materials has been innovative in many ways, not just on the IT front," continued Howard. "We have developed a number of forward-thinking processes that have helped our customers operate more effectively, such as the front discharge mixer that is now a staple of the concrete industry. Using 8x8's technologies will now help us improve collaboration and efficiency which, in turn, will enable us to continue to provide the industry's best products and services."
"We are pleased that Irving Materials has entrusted its communications
needs to 8x8 and that we will be able to deliver such significant cost
savings and operational efficiencies," said 8x8 President
