8×8, Inc. (NASDAQ: EGHT) reported it is providing integrated business VoIP telephony, video, group paging and mobile services for Learn4Life´s rapidly growing network of public charter schools.
These advanced services are being subsidized through the federal government´s E-rate program, which supports telecommunications modernization and upgrades at qualifying educational institutions.
Founded 13 years ago, Learn4Life began in Lancaster, California, as a new education resource for disadvantaged children who cannot attend traditional full-time schools. Typically these kids have dropped out–or are at risk for dropping out–because they must work to support their families, have experienced teen pregnancy, are in foster care, or lack transportation. Learn4Life addresses these barriers by giving each student a personal learning plan that allows them to do most of their schoolwork at home. Phone, Internet and videoconferencing services enable them to connect with teachers remotely.
8×8 is a provider of unified communications and collaboration, or UCC, services in the cloud to small and medium businesses, or SMBs, and mid-market and distributed enterprises. For additional information, visit www.8×8.com.
