8x8 eliminates upfront cost of business phones with new flex hardware program
8x8, Inc. , a leading cloud provider of voice, video, chat and contact center solutions for over one million users worldwide, have this week announced its new 8x8 Flex Hardware Program which helps companies take the risk out of moving to cloud communications by eliminating the upfront capital costs associated with purchasing desktop and conference phones.
“Hardware, such as desktop phones, headsets, and conference phones, have traditionally accounted for a large portion of a new communications solution deployment, which can be a deterrent for some businesses looking to move to the cloud and adopt an OPEX model,” said Meghan Keough, Global VP of Corporate and Product Marketing at 8x8. “By offering a low-risk, Device as a Service offering, 8x8 is removing friction from the sales process, allowing companies to focus their efforts on reaping the long-term benefits and cost savings associated with cloud communications.”
The 8x8 Flex Hardware Program is designed to make equipment a frictionless part of modernizing business communications. It starts by providing the latest Poly IP desktop and conference phones at low monthly lease payments, eliminating the need to incur upfront costs. The Flex program also includes an industry-leading, seven-year warranty, easy upgrades for new hardware, and risk-free terms since there are no long-term contracts. The phones can be canceled and returned at any time and 8x8 even pays for the return shipping.
8x8’s lifecycle management capabilities are included for phones in the Flex program so companies can easily set-up, deploy, monitor, update and transition the equipment. Combined with the no risk approach and seven-year warranty, companies now have a hassle-free way to lease, maintain and transition phones.
Shawn Puddester, vice president of global service providers at Poly, said, “We are thrilled to partner with 8x8 to offer companies an easy way to upgrade their communications systems with zero-risk. The integration of 8x8’s Flex Hardware Program with Poly’s latest VVX x50 line of VoIP desktop phones, with industry leading voice technology, enables innovative communications for the modern-day workforce.”
With the 8x8 Flex Hardware Program, organizations can choose from more than 15 different Poly IP desktop and conference phone models. The program covers repairs under the seven-year warranty, and customers can easily upgrade and replace hardware to the latest models. The Flex program is also perfect for businesses with fluctuating seasonal requirements as they can add or remove hardware as needed at no extra cost.
