Local IT business, Strategic Group has been awarded the Rising Star of the Year ANZ as part of the 8×8 FY21 Partners Awards.
The awards recognise the six top performing 8×8 Channel Partners for FY2021, with Strategic Group being amongst the highest performing when it comes to voice solutions.
Strategic Group’s General Manager of Telecommunications Adam Fairless said the team was honoured by the national industry recognition.
“The awards have only been running for two years, so we are honoured to have already established a brand and business that stands out for its unique delivery of telecommunication solutions that provide a more streamlined and efficient work environment for clients,” Adam said.
“8×8 is a user-friendly software that provides an all-in-one communication platform for businesses, solving the IT and communication restraints with having staff members working from in the office as well as at home.
“After COVID-19, the realisation that working from home is an option meant there was a greater need for an IT system that could ensure ongoing productivity around the clock, no matter how big or small the business is.
“We’re thrilled to offer this solution through our channel partnership with 8×8.”
By deploying 8×8 software into a business, users can integrate voice, video, chat, contact centre and enterprise-class API solutions into one global, secure, and reliable cloud communications platform.
It allows connection and productivity, no matter where the user is working from.

Most Novocastrians are surprised to hear that some of Australia's first Cloud technology was developed in Newcastle.
Strategic Group developed the first Cloud solution for SME's in Australia - VAULT, aptly named as it was first built in the old Chubb Security bunker in Hamilton.
Strategic Group now services organisations all across Australia, some with an international footprint and was recently selected as MYOB's preferred Cloud solution.
