Traded in other countries:EGT.Germany
8X8, Inc. was incorporated in California in February 1987 and was reincorporated in Delaware in December 1996. The Company develops and markets telecommunications services for Internet protocol, or IP, telephony and video applications as well as contact center, web-based conferencing and unified communications services, and cloud-based computing services. The Company offers voice, video, mobile, and unified communications solutions for business of all sizes. It is focused on delivering reliable business solutions that are easy to use, advanced and much less expensive than traditional solutions. The Company offers the 8x8 Virtual Office hosted PBX service, 8x8 Virtual Contact Center service, 8x8 Virtual Office Pro unified communications solution and 8x8 Cloud-Based Computing solutions. Between November 2002 and April 2009, the Company marketed its services under the Packet8 brand. In May 2009, the Company began marketing its services under the 8x8 brand. As of March 31, 2013, the Company had more than 32,500 business customers. The Company employs cloud-based technology, known as Voice over Internet Protocol ("VoIP"), to deliver its services. VoIP technology enables communications over the Internet through the compression of voice, video and other media into data packets that can be efficiently transmitted over data networks and then converted back into the original media at the other end. Data networks, such as the Internet or local area networks, or LANs, have always utilized packet-switched technology to transmit information between two communicating terminals. IP is the most commonly used protocol for communicating on these packet switched networks. VoIP allows for the transmission of voice, video and data over these same packet-switched networks, providing an alternative to traditional telephone networks which use a fixed electrical path to carry voice signals through a series of switches to a destination. The objective of the company is to provide reliable, scalable, and profitable worldwide Internet-based communications services with unmatched quality by leveraging our patented software technologies to deliver innovative, competitively priced offerings. The Company's services work over virtually any high-speed Internet connection worldwide to allow calls to or from any phone in the world, whether that phone is an IP phone, a mobile phone or a PSTN phone. The Company currently sell and market its 8x8 services to end users through its direct sales force, website, and third party resellers. The Company faces strong competition from incumbent telephone companies, cable companies and alternative voice and video communication providers. Its competitors include traditional PBX and key system manufacturers and their resellers, including Cisco Systems, Inc., Avaya Holdings Corp., Mitel Networks Corporation, Shoretel, Inc. and Toshiba, Centrex services offered by incumbent telephone companies, and VoIP services offered by XO Communic
