Santa Clara, Calif. — 8x8 said today that OfficeMax will distribute its Packet8 Virtual Office business-phone system through the retailer’s 900-plus stores nationwide.
The $129 Virtual Office will come with a month of free service plus a $39.99 monthly subscription for an unlimited extension. The solution provides PBX functionality through a hosted VoIP platform. It features an auto attendant, worldwide extension dialing, voicemail, conference bridge and ring groups.
While retaining its residential voice and video service, 8x8 has shifted its focus to its small-business solution. At the end of 2007, the company had reported more than 10,000 Virtual Office subscribers.
