By Stefanie Mosca, TMCnet Web Editor
8x8 Inc., provider of cloud communications and computing solutions, has announced the release of "8x8 (News - Alert) Virtual Office Pro 2.0," an upgraded edition of its award-winning hosted unified communications offering with improvements designed to further enhance the productivity and mobility advantages of this powerful web-based solution.
Originally introduced in January 2010, 8x8 Virtual Office Pro delivers a complete suite of web-based communications and collaboration services such as phone, fax, web conferencing, call recording, chat, mobile application and more - via a single online dashboard, enabling access to these tools remotely from any location using just a PC and web browser.
8x8 Virtual Office Pro also reduces a business' communications costs by combining the services in a bundled offering priced at under $50 per user.
"We are very pleased to provide version 2.0 at no additional cost and, due to our web based delivery, no annoying downloads to our current VO Pro subscribers," said 8x8 chief marketing officer Debbie Jo Severin (News - Alert). "The new features incorporated in 8x8 Virtual Office Pro 2.0 make it even easier and more productive for a business to access and manage all of its communications needs in the cloud, without having to purchase any on-premises equipment, including the business phone that normally sits on an employee's desk."
8x8 Virtual Office Pro 2.0 is available to existing 8x8 Virtual Office Unlimited, Metered or Global Extension subscribers as an optional service for an additional $20 per extension per month. New 8x8 Virtual Office subscribers can receive the entire bundle (Unlimited Extension plus Virtual Office Pro) for a promotional price of $49.99 per month.
