8×8, Inc. (NASDAQ: EGHT) said that George Best Belfast City Airport has replaced its traditional phone system with business VoIP and cloud-based unified communications services from 8×8 Solutions.
8×8 Solutions, formerly Voicenet Solutions, is the UK/European arm of 8×8, Inc.
“The existing infrastructure and on-premise PBX telephone system at Belfast City Airport could no longer handle the needs of the 1,500 employees and eight buildings spread across the airport´s 100,000 square foot facility,” said Terry Moore, CEO of Outsource Solutions, Belfast City Airport´s IT solutions provider. “After a thorough assessment, a decision was made to replace the airport´s old PBX system with 8×8´s cloud-based communications solutions.”
Belfast City Airport´s new cloud-based communications system is configured to not only handle the airport´s present needs but to also scale to handle future requirements, seasonality and VIP communications with full wallboard and call statistics reporting. In addition, the airport can now accurately measure, rate and analyze telephone-based service aspects, along with providing real-time reporting and analytics.
