Leader: 8x8 

8x8, a company that does about 40 percent of its business though channel partners, is known for its X Series UCaaS suite that offers telephony, videoconferencing and audio conferencing, whiteboarding and screen sharing, team messaging (which includes interoperability with third-party team messaging apps), and solution analytics. 8x8, San Jose, Calif., also offers contact center services. The report said that 8x8 is a great fit for multisite organizations that have telephony and contact-center-centric requirements.

8x8 in July bought Wavecell, a privately held Communications Platform-as-a-Service (CPaaS) firm based in Singapore in a deal that 8x8 said will help it provide more messaging, voice and video APIs to enterprises and developers. The purchase marked the company's entry into the CPaaS arena.

Strengths: Users rate 8x8 highly for voice quality and service reliability and the company continues to expand its R&D investments to improve its UCaaS capabilities. Many customers also appreciate the integration between 8x8's UCaaS and Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) solutions.

Weaknesses: Users reported that the company'scurrent meeting offering has some limitations and that 8x8’s third-party integrators are not always sufficiently trained. The company's marketing focus is also limited to North America, several European markets and Australia.
