(NASDAQ:EGHT), a leading provider of cloud-based unified communications and contact center solutions, today announced it has signed a Platinum Supplier Partnership agreement with Intelisys, the nation's leading Technology Services Distributor of business communications services including voice, data, access, cable, collaboration, wireless and cloud.

As a Master Agent for an elite network of telecom consultants and value-added resellers, Intelisys is focused on empowering the independent sales channel by helping business telecom customers make informed choices about services, technology and cost savings.

"As such, we are excited to add an industry leader like 8x8 to our Platinum Supplier community. With its broad portfolio of services, outstanding security and reliability credentials, and global presence, 8x8's solutions will be a great asset for our Sales Partners as they continue to capture the growing demand for cloud based alternatives to legacy communications systems."

Intelisys offers a diverse portfolio of solutions hand-picked to meet the demands of its Sales Partner community. Suppliers are chosen to fill specific product niches and must meet strict criteria both in terms of commitment to the channel and quality of services including financial stability, competitive products and commissions, and ease of doing business in a two-tiered distribution model.

8x8's complete suite of integrated cloud communications services will be added to the Intelisys portfolio, including Virtual Office business phone service, Virtual Office Pro unified communications, Virtual Office Analytics big data assessment and reporting tools and Virtual Contact Center, an easy-to- deploy omnichannel call center solution that can be implemented separately or as an integrated component of a Virtual Office deployment. All of 8x8's solutions offer built-in security compliance (including HIPAA, SOX and FISMA), disaster-preparedness functionality and global availability to support the growing demands of today's mobile, BYOD, anytime/anywhere work environment.

"The selection of 8x8 as a Platinum Supplier Partner is a huge endorsement of our leadership in the industry and success selling into the mid-market," said 8x8 Senior Vice President of Global Sales, Puneet Arora. "We are looking forward to working closely with Intelisys leadership and Sales Partners to educate customers about the numerous business benefits of transitioning to the cloud and ways in which 8x8's compelling suite of services can contribute to their productivity and growth."
