The Company is engaged in business cloud communications and development and use of Internet protocol voice, video and data communication technologies in a true SaaS model. The 8x8 unified cloud communications solution addresses the shortcomings of legacy and point solution cloud services through its pure cloud Software as a Service offering. The Company's Infrastructure Manager abstracts complex global interconnectivity between Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN) providing customers with a phone system that can reach any phone in the world whether wireless or wireline. Its Integration Manager integrates with third-party applications, including Salesforce.com, Microsoft Dynamics, NetSuite, Zendesk and many others, to provide integrated applications functionality within its communications and collaboration services.

The Company's services include 8x8 Virtual Office, 8x8 Virtual Office Pro, 8x8 Virtual Contact Center, 8x8 Virtual Meeting and 8x8 Virtual Office Analytics and are delivered over an integrated cloud communications platform that amalgamates telephony, unified communications (UC) and contact center users across the enterprise with single log in and shared presence to enable cross-suite functionality. Its customers receive a single invoice each month with transparent subscription pricing without the billing complexities and minute overages typically associated with traditional providers. The Company's UCC in the cloud allows businesses to deploy 8x8 services within their organizations. Porting existing 1-800 numbers is often the longest part of the process. The Company's platform uses a deployment and provisioning methodology to ensure implementation and can be especially beneficial for companies with complex requirements, multiple sites, global implementations or integration with customer relationship management (CRM) or other back end systems. Its services work on smartphones, tablets, Personal Computers, IP phones and mobile phones.
