The digital age is about partnerships. The cloud era demands cooperation, companies coming together to create something grand – think Voltron or Captain Planet. These strategic partnerships are propelling this time of transformation, paving the way for cloud migration.

This week the trio of Poly, 8x8 and ScanSource unveiled a partnership, forming the program, CloudFuel. CloudFuel is poised to assist organizations is confidently and rapidly migrate communications to the cloud.

“For many years 8x8 has been helping businesses replace their legacy on-premises solutions to modernize their communications and increase service quality, system resiliency, IT agility and performance visibility all with a single cloud technology platform,” said Vik Verma, CEO at 8x8. “Today’s announcement takes our relationships with ScanSource, a leading provider of technology products and solutions, and Poly, the leading phone equipment provider, to a new level, uniting industry leaders together with a joint purpose - to deliver cost effective, packaged programs that will enable countless organizations to easily and quickly take advantage of the cloud.”

The ScanSource network of over 35,000 resellers will open the door to direct relationships, where companies can gain access to the complete 8x8 X Series and standalone solutions. In addition, customers are given pricing incentives for Poly equipment.

“Our previous on-premises telephony system could not provide the critical integrated contact center functionality we needed,” said Bayard Carlin, Senior Director of Technical Operations at Colibri Group, a family of brands that provide learning solutions for licensed professionals in real estate, healthcare, and 22 other industries. “We moved to 8x8 for a single Unified Communications and Contact Center solution. I was impressed with how fast the switch-over took place and how seamless the project was from day one. We have realized 30 percent cost savings, and more importantly, we have less complexity and more functionality, including rich contact center analytics and an easier process for adding new agents or locations quickly.”
