It's no secret that 8×8, Inc is a leader in the business VoIP industry, and reflective of exactly this, was their booth at the ITExpo. The towering station stood proudly in front of the main entrance to the exhibit floor, impossible to ignore, much like their successful footprint in voice communications. We got a first-hand look at Virtual Office Mobile, Version 4.
Virtual Office Mobile has all the capabilities of a mobile PBX, on top of looking polished and being incredibly user friendly. It is currently available for both Android and iOS. Calls may be made over Wi-Fi, 3G/4G/LTE, and even under low bandwidth connections – using a new advanced compression technology. It makes 8×8's product even more powerful, rolling fax, chat, and visual voicemail into one. Additionally, employees may view the status of their co-workers, and access call transfer, conference bridging and directories. Special Thanks to Joan Citelli and the 8×8 team – we'll be taking the new platform for a spin in the coming weeks and documenting our experience.
