Insight signs to take 8x8 into public sector

Insight UK has joined 8x8's business partner programme. The IT solutions provider will deploy 8x8's cloud-based voice, video, chat, contact centre and API solutions in the public sector market.

These include 8x8 X Series, a range of collaboration and contact centre services which provide a scalable way to help digitally transform customer and employee experiences. 8x8 X Series aims to bring together voice, video, chat and contact centre capabilities along with analytics on one cloud platform.

8x8 X Series is already used by UK public sector organisations including The National Archives and the Ministry of Justice. “With Insight UK’s specialist public sector division, 8x8 is set to further expand its presence across public sector organisations,” said the vendor.

Darren Hedley, director of public sector for Insight UK, said: “We are continually looking for ways to develop our solutions and services to offer our clients the latest communications and contact centre software in the cloud. Working with 8x8 gives us scope to now provide clients with unified communications and contact centre software on a subscription basis.”

Russell Tilsed, public sector director at 8x8, said: "With demand for cloud communications rapidly gaining momentum, our partnership with Insight will mean we’re perfectly positioned to help public sector organisations achieve digital transformation. We are working together to achieve our common goal of revolutionising communications for local and central government organisations."

Earlier this year, 8x8 appointed Charterhouse as one of its leading resellers in EMEA. Charterhouse works with brands including Amnesty International, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, M&C Saatchi, Canary Wharf and CBRE.
