8x8, provider of 8x8 Virtual Office and Packet8
announces that its IP Hosted Key System business phone service received a "Best of Show Award" in the "Most Innovative Product" category at Technology Marketing Corporation's INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference and EXPO East 2009 which was held February 2 - 4 in Miami Beach, Florida.
8x8's Hosted Key System is an IP-based replacement phone service for traditional business key systems typically used by companies whose size or structure dictates the sharing of multiple, common phone lines among employees. In addition to noteworthy cost and feature advantages, the 8x8 Hosted Key System solution, as with all 8x8 business phone services, operates in any business location equipped with a public or private broadband Internet connection and can therefore be deployed seamlessly to connect multiple business locations worldwide.
The INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO Best of Show Award recognizes innovative products and solutions that were featured in the Exhibit Hall during the event. This designation serves to highlight the technological achievement and creative product features that set these winners apart from the rest of the crowd. INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine editorial staff evaluated the pre-show nominations, and met with vendors to inspect and review the displayed products on the first day of the Expo.
The 8x8 Hosted Key System solution includes a searchable corporate directory, direct intercom paging from phone to phone and shared line appearance functionality to allow a group of users to accept a call, place it on hold, page a colleague and ask them to pick up the call on any one of up to nine separate lines. The service can be deployed separately or in combination with the 8x8 Virtual Office hosted iPBX phone solution.
