The July Partner Update video, sponsored by 8×8, highlights this month’s events happening at Pax8 and across the industry.


Jared Pangretic, SVP of Sales, is joined by our Chief Revenue Officer Nick Heddy to talk about Pax8 achievements in the first 6 months of 2021 — such as surpassing 800 employees and acquiring Wirehive and Sea-Level Operations. Nick also announces that to expand our international reach, Pax8 has just acquired Resello and been globally authorized by Microsoft.


Next, Jenn Bodell, SVP of Channel, shares where partners can find Pax8 throughout July at Pax8 and channel events in the US, Canada, and the UK — including our brand new Dynamics Bootcamp Workshop. And don’t miss Microsoft Inspire coming up July 14-15!
