Introduction to 8x8 Telecommunications
Bethune-Cookman University now has 8x8 as our telecommunication provides. The 8x8 platform allows all users to continue to use their traditional handset, and now you can use a softphone on your computer, tablet or your cell phone via the 8x8 Virtual Office App when communicating.
This new VoIP system not only updated our prior VoIP phone system, but it now allows us to have business continuity in case of a natural disaster or any other campus closures, making the University campus inaccessible. Some other added features from our new cloud-based system include:
Transcribed voicemail-to-emails sent to your Google email.
Business SMS Messaging
Personal Conference Call Bridge
