Work from Home: Qualifacts Takes Workforce Fully Remote with 8x8

May 18, 2020

Leading EHR Provider Recovers from Outage and Moves Employees Fully Remote on 8x8 Cloud Communications and Contact Center Solution

CAMPBELL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 8x8, Inc. (NYSE: EGHT), a leading integrated cloud communications platform, today announced Nashville-based electronic health records (EHR) provider Qualifacts is now using the 8x8 X Series cloud communications and contact center solutions to support operations and remote employees across 35 states.

Qualifacts is a leading EHR provider for behavioral health and human services organizations across the United States. The company and its EHR platform, CareLogic®, helps providers adapt to rapidly changing environments and focus on what is most important – client care – by optimizing efficiency and productivity.

Qualifacts began preparation for the COVID-19 crisis in January to ensure long-term business continuity and sustainability through the arch of the anticipated pandemic. Qualifacts telephone systems were not initially top-of-mind. When a devastating tornado impacted Nashville’s city-wide telecommunications infrastructure in March, Qualifacts determined a more resilient and flexible communications platform was required to ensure long-term business continuity. In partnership with the telecommunications consulting and process outsourcing firm Resource Communications Group (RCG), Qualifacts engaged 8x8.

“When we began preparations in January for the COVID pandemic, we were not focused on our telephone systems. The impact of the tornadoes created an opportunity,” said Tom Keen, Chief Technology Officer, Qualifacts. “We rapidly engaged RCG, and together we engaged 8x8. In a matter of five days, they achieved the near-impossible. In parallel to executing our plan to transition our workforce to fully remote operations, we were able to stand up, roll-out and train on the 8x8 cloud communications and contact center solution, all without disruption to our team, our customers or our business.”

Qualifacts deployed 8x8 X Series, an integrated voice, video, chat, contact center and enterprise API solution that is built on an open, modern cloud technology platform. By using a single application for mobile and desktop devices, company employees, including contact center agents, are able to work safely and remotely, with complete access to their phone numbers and extensions for calling, unlimited secure video conferencing and chat. Qualifacts now has a solution that aligns with their business continuity plan, and enables resilient and responsive communications, collaboration and customer engagement from anywhere in the world.

“8x8’s mission is to deliver cloud communications and contact center solutions that allow organizations to be ready, responsive and resilient, while enhancing employee and customer experience,” said Vik Verma, Chief Executive Officer at 8x8, Inc. “We’re incredibly proud of the speed with which we deployed our platform for Qualifacts, getting their communications and customer engagement back online and ready to take their team fully remote in response to the natural disaster and current public health crisis.”
