8x8 and Jabra Partner to Expand Work-from-Anywhere Capabilities

8x8, an integrated cloud communications platform provider, has expanded its support of Jabra headsets to include the Jabra BIZ, Engage, Evolve and UC VOICE mono and stereo headsets. The additional support ensures companies can continue to use their preferred audio solutions with 8x8 cloud communications, video collaboration, and contact center solutions.

Now, 32 models across the Jabra BIZ, Engage, Evolve, and UC VOICE headset families can be used with 8x8 X Series, 8x8 Video Meetings, and 8x8 Contact Center.

"Our research has shown that knowledge workers are facing increased disruptions while collaborating," said Kelly Nagel, president and general manager of Jabra North America, in a statement. "It's paramount that they have the tools to overcome a noisy environment and communicate effectively. Our partnership with 8x8 provides customers with the exceptional call quality they need to stay focused and productive using a Jabra professional headset and 8x8 service plan with a physical phone, softphone, or mobile device."

With this integration, joint customers will have a seamless experience when making and receiving calls using the 8x8 Virtual Office Desktop or Mobile applications and a Jabra headset. Users can answer, mute, and disconnect 8x8 calls directly from their Jabra headsets with no further actions required in the 8x8 applications.

"8x8 is dedicated to providing companies with the communication capabilities they need to remain productive regardless of location or device. As businesses and organizations shift to mobile and remote working, it becomes even more paramount employees and contact center agents can communicate clearly with colleagues, partners, and customers," said Dejan Deklich, chief product officer at 8x8, in a statement. "The partnership with Jabra expands the choice companies have with 8x8 to ensure their teams can be productive and effective while working from anywhere."
