AdEPT hooks up with cloud solutions provider to address unified communications market

The 8x8 X Series UCaaS suite is proving very disruptive in the UK marketplace thanks to the ease with which it can be deployed and scaled up

AdEPT Technology Group PLC -

AdEPT Technology Group PLC (LON:ADT) has unveiled a strategic partnership with 8x8, a global provider of pure cloud solutions.

The two companies will jointly address the unified communications as a service (UCaaS) and contact centre as a service (CCaaS) markets.

AdEPT said the partnership would allow it to win more unified communications (UC) business, with an initial focus on public sector organisations and healthcare providers.

The AIM-listed firm said the 8x8 X Series UCaaS suite is proving very disruptive in the UK marketplace thanks to the ease with which it can be deployed and scaled up.

This new partnership allows AdEPT and 8x8 to tap into the public sector "Cloud First" policy and similarly the National Health Services’ "Internet First" policy. These are strategic guidelines to public sector organisations that encourage the deployment of technology in the cloud wherever possible.

"The partnership with 8x8 elegantly builds out our portfolio with a fantastic solution set. This is already an important marketplace for AdEPT, where we have been highly successful in delivering communication solutions - whether they are deployed on-premise, in a hybrid manner or purely in the cloud,” Phil Race, the chief executive officer of AdEPT said in a statement.

"However, we have seen an increasing demand for UC and contact centre solutions that can be deployed without any need for on-premise infrastructure, the so-called 'zero footprint' projects.

"These solutions are crucial to business in normal times - but they have become even more critical in a COVID world of disconnected supply chains, distant customers and remote workers "It's important for AdEPT to be partnering with leaders in this industry," Race stressed.
