8×8 Announces Experience Communications as a Service (XCaaS) to Help Organizations Meet New Work Requirements

8×8, Inc.

With XCaaS, organizations can support the communications requirements of all employees as they work together to deliver differentiated customer experiences.

XCaaS eliminates communications silos, brings the employee experience and customer experience back together, and helps drive the cloud communications industry forward significantly.”
