SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT), the leading
provider of global Enterprise Communications as a Service (ECaaS), today
announced that the company has been recognized by Gartner as a Leader in
the August 23, 2016 "Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a
Service (UCaaS), Worldwide"1 for the fifth consecutive year.
This is validation for 8x8's momentum in the mid-market and enterprise
segment; the reach of its global network, delivery and deployment
capabilities; and the high quality, reliability and security of its
global cloud communications solutions.
According to Gartner, "The UCaaS market as a whole is transitioning from
the 'early adopter phase' to the 'early mainstream phase' for enterprise
delivery. Many UCaaS providers now support global deployments spanning
multiple regions (for example, 30 or more country markets). The larger
UCaaS providers can now provide professional services, project
management, local telephony services, customer support and import/export
authority in dozens of country markets."
"We are honored to be recognized once again as a leader in the Gartner
Magic Quadrant," said Vik Verma, CEO of 8x8. "This serves as an
important milestone for us and we believe validates the significant
strides we've made this year in the mid-market and enterprise with our
global cloud communications platform. Customers around the world are
recognizing the need for a tightly integrated single platform for all
their communications requirements across unified communications and
contact center, and 8x8 is the only vendor today that can deliver this
at a global scale. In addition, with our increasing international
footprint--Global Reach Network, extensive localization, deployment and
support capabilities--we look forward to further supporting our
customers' global and regional expansion efforts."
