8×8, Poly and ScanSource Announce Strategic Partnership

8×8, Poly, and ScanSource are joining forces to help companies move away from legacy business communication systems to the cloud.

The joint global program, CloudFuel, will accelerate the process of ensuring organizations have proven cloud technology to meet all of their needs across unified communications, collaboration and the contact center. It will be offered through the extensive ScanSource network of more than 35,000 resellers and will provide access through their direct relationships to hundreds of thousands of customers across the globe.

The program will include the full range of 8×8 X Series and standalone solutions, built on top of the best voice quality and reliability in the cloud, along with integrated analytics and data, frictionless migration tools, and deployment services. As part of the full-service program, customers will also receive incentives on Poly equipment including favorable leasing terms, pricing, and a buyback program for current on-premises equipment. The companies will invest in joint marketing development, equipment buyback programs, special incentives, and migration tools to accelerate the transition to the cloud.

CloudFuel will be available starting in December, 2019.
