8x8 Partners with Sandler Partners

8x8, a cloud communications platform provider, is partnering with Sandler Partners, a master agent and distributor of connectivity and cloud services.

The partnership allows Sandler Partners to provide its more than 9,000 technology partners with 8x8 Experience Communications as a Service (XCaaS), a single platform for both employee and customer experience, which includes fully integrated, cloud contact center, voice, team chat, and meetings capabilities.

"The demand for unified communications and contact center solutions has skyrocketed as many businesses have shifted to hybrid work environments. 8x8 offers a single-vendor UCaaS and CCaaS solution, and we are thrilled to add them to our growing portfolio of top providers," said Alan Sandler, managing partner and founder of Sandler Partners, in a statement. "This partnership with 8x8 will allow our partners to help their clients facilitate and enhance a better employee and customer experience."

"Our partners, and the strong and trusted long-term relationships they have built with their customers, are driving our channel-first success. Sandler Partners is a strong and welcome addition to the 8x8 Open Channel Program," said John DeLozier, senior vice president and global channel chief at 8x8, in a statement. "The channel has been essential in guiding organizations along their digital transformation journey as they move off legacy, on-premises communications and customer engagement systems. 8x8 XCaaS delivers a single cloud communications and contact center platform that enables our channel partners to take advantage of this transformational shift and capitalize on a major growth opportunity."
