8x8, Inc., a provider of hosted IP telephony and unified communications (UC), has revealed that it will be participating in ITEXPO West 2012, one of the world’s largest communication and technology events to take place October 2-5 in Austin, Texas.
It only makes sense that the company is showcasing its cloud-based telephony and UC solutions during their exhibition at Booth #801. The company was recently declared the “clear leader” over several reputable communications services competitors during 2011 by market research firm Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert), as detailed in its recent 2012 report, “Analysis of the Hosted IP Telephony and UC Services Market.” During its ITEXPO display, the company will show how its solutions enable businesses to conduct empowered conversations combining voice, video and data.
Furthermore, ITEXPO (News - Alert) expects to reel in over 7,500 attendees this year, which will include leading domestic and international companies as well as enterprises and small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) looking to further enhance their companies. By harnessing today’s most reliable and powerful products and solutions, these companies look to gain a competitive edge. Not only this, but thousands of resellers, manufacturers, service providers and developers will also be seen at the event.
As ITEXPO serves as a symbol of the latest and greatest in the rapidly evolving world of communications and technology, those attending are notably high-level corporate and technical executives who provide both high visibility and insight to the industry’s most influential buyers, which will ultimately help important decision-makers access the most desirable and innovative technological developments currently on the market.
"8x8 is returning to ITEXPO for the seventh consecutive year with a stronger presence than ever," said 8x8 Chairman and CEO Bryan Martin (News - Alert) in a statement. "We are eager to show businesses how our cloud-based services empower conversations by extending the features and conveniences of collaboration beyond the office, increasing productivity of mobile workers, telecommuters and other employees who bring their own devices to work."
Additionally, 8x8 Vice President of Business Development Huw Rees (News - Alert) will serve as a keynote speaker at the lunchtime presentation Wednesday, October 3 at 11:45 a.m. Moreover, 8x8 Chief Marketing Office Debbie Jo Severin (News - Alert) will speak on Oct. 3 at 11 a.m. about growing business, with Product Development Manager Rob Townsend speaking on customer service in the call center on Thursday, Oct.4 at 2 p.m.
Last year at ITEXPO West 2011, 8x8 was honored with a “Best of Show Award” in the SMB category for its Virtual Room video-conferencing solution.
