Columbus Capital has been partnered with Arrow since 2013 as its telecommunications business partner.

The business was entering an exciting period of growth and expansion which brought about the need for a sophisticated cloud contact centre setup and deployment. This also proved an opportune time to review their current on-premise phone setup.

Arrow sought to provide a solution that would future-proof the business and provide a single cloud-based communication platform delivering voice and contact centre as well as video conferencing, and chat.


Columbus Capital required a contact centre solution across two sites, in Australia and the Philippines. Arrow conducted a thorough needs-analysis and proposed the 8×8 Virtual Contact Centre, a perfect solution for a business undergoing a dynamic period of growth.

Arrow also proposed the migration of their onpremise
phone system to 8×8’s Virtual Office.

This unified communications application integrates business softphones with voicemail, IM, presence, video calling, fax, call recording, web conferencing, and social media.

  • 8×8 Virtual Contact Centre

  • 8×8 Virtual Office
  • IP Handsets
  • Dedicated project manager
  • 24/7 Australia based customer support
  • Installation, training, and maintenance


Columbus Capital now has a cloud contact centre that works seamlessly across their two sites, and the migration of their phones to a cloud-based platform frees them from the limitations of an on-premise setup, including expensive maintenance and upgrade costs.

Cloud-based integrated communications allow Columbus Capital access to a suite of business tools that will boost productivity, improve the customer experience, and provide intelligence that drives smart business decisions.
