8x8 Hits New Milestone in Subscriber Base

8x8, Inc. has announced that it has achieved a new milestone and now has more than 25,000 business customers subscribing to its Voice over Internet Protocol, unified communications, video conferencing, and managed hosting services.

Bryan Martin, the Chairman & CEO of 8x8, stated that he felt gratified that 8x8 had helped so many businesses survive and prosper during the difficult economic climate of the last few years. He also stated that they had achieved 24% year-over-year growth in revenue from their customer base but they still had room to grow. He additionally mentioned that they would soon be offering new services like the Virtual Room video cloud conferencing service.

The announcement comes shortly after the North American Business VoIP Services Leadership Scorecard named 8x8 one of the top five hosted VoIP and UC service providers at Infonetics Research 2011. Other companies that shared the prominent designation were New Global Telecom, Verizon Business, and Smoothstone.

8x8’s core services include 8x8 Virtual Office, a VoIP business phone service that allows customers to replace premise-based PBX phone systems with an internet-based alternative. They also have 8x8 Virtual Office Pro, an expanded version of the service that offers unlimited video conferencing, call recording, Internet fax, voicemail management, and mobile integration.
