Introducing a New Strategy for Partners
Recently, 8×8 has been placing increasing effort into its strategies for partner support.

According to DeLozier, PartnerXchange also provides greater transparency and visibility into the activities and needs of the channel partner. This insight will allow 8×8 to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging partner trends.
