Santa Clara, Calif. — 8×8 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, 8×8 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.
