8×8, Inc. (NYSE:EGHT), a leading cloud provider of voice, video, chat and contact center technology for over one million users worldwide, today announced the availability of a complete cloud contact center solution, 8×8 Contact Center.

The company will showcase the 8×8 Contact Center at Customer Contact Week in booth 608, taking place this week at The Mirage in Las Vegas. 8×8 will be demonstrating several new products and capabilities designed to reduce customer friction, increase first contact resolution and improve visibility into the overall customer journey across both X Series and 8×8 Contact Center.

The 8×8 Contact Center is a complete standalone solution including ACD, IVR, omnichannel, dialer, reporting, customer journey analytics, quality management, speech analytics, surveys and knowledgebase, all delivered on a single unified platform. The 8×8 Contact Center is the only CCaaS product on the market that includes a bank of minutes for each agent providing significant savings opportunity. It also offers customers the freedom to utilize their own PBX or take advantage of 8×8’s best-in-class UCaaS offering. A host of pre-built CRM integrations extend the capabilities of the platform and provide contact centers with single sign on and centralized administration. It is backed by a 99.99% uptime SLA and guaranteed voice quality.

Customer Contact Week attendees can connect with 8×8 contact center experts to learn more about the offering. Demo highlights include:

  • 8×8 Intelligent IVR: Enhances the customer experience with AI-enabled self-service capabilities and improves the depth and visibility of IVR usage with the use of automatic speech recognition and natural language processing. The 8×8 Intelligent IVR provides a graphical interface for designing call flows and provides pre-set call flow prompts for specific use cases.
  • 8×8 Customer Journey Analytics: Delivers in-depth insight into every customer touchpoint through a simplified interface to eliminate manual analysis, providing a clear understanding of every step within the customer journey and which steps help or hurt customer sentiment.
  • 8×8 Expert Finder: Eases the effort in finding subject matter experts to get answers to the hard questions faster by enhancing collaboration to expedite the time to resolution. Expert Finder combines the value of 8×8 Team Messaging and AI to search and rank established message rooms based on past chats and expert interactions. 8×8 Expert Finder works across messaging platforms, both inside and outside the organization, providing interoperability to more than 24 third-party messaging platforms (e.g. Slack, Cisco Webex Teams, Google Hangouts, etc). This enables employees to access the collective wisdom of the extended organization.

“8×8 has a twelve-year, successful history of providing contact center services. For customers feeling trapped by aging infrastructure, the 8×8 Contact Center solution delivers more value by including omnichannel, quality management, speech analytics, customer survey, preview dialer and customer journey analytics at a price point well below our competition,” said Janice Rapp, VP of Product Marketing for Contact Center at 8×8. “What’s more, 8×8 Contact Center gives customers easy access to additional capabilities delivered through our single platform.
