8x8 Deepens Channel Commitment With New Elev8 Partner Program
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--8x8, Inc. (NYSE:EGHT), a leading cloud provider of voice, video, chat and contact center solutions for over one million users worldwide, today announced the launch of its Elev8 Partner Program, the next phase in its expanding channel strategy aimed at delivering unmatched support and value for 8x8’s partner community. All current and future contracted partners will be immediately enrolled in the tiered program, with benefits targeting both master agents and sub agents.
The Elev8 program was designed to ensure that every member of 8x8’s channel community has the necessary resources to thrive. Elev8 offers tiered levels of dedicated funds for lead generation and conversion, as well as highly customizable, white-gloved campaigns to reach prospects. In addition, the program includes activities such as Elev8 blitz days (8x8’s channel pipeline generation initiative), account planning, product demos and custom co-branded prospect events. The Elev8 Partner Program has three designated tiers: X Partner, X Plus Partner and Infinity Partner.
“8x8 is a Channel first company, therefore the success of our channel program is critical,” said John DeLozier, Channel Chief at 8x8. “Cloud communications and contact center have undergone massive shifts, and partner programs need to be designed in a way that reflects how these industries are changing. The Elev8 Partner Program exceeds industry standards and demonstrates to our channel partners that we’re in the trenches assisting them as they convert customers from legacy, on-premises to cloud solutions. We’re committed to providing the resources they need to succeed.”
