This quick guide provides basic instruction for installing the 8x8 Virtual Office for NetSuite Integration version 2.2.
Important Note: This version of the integration is now in Legacy status. Users will eventually be migrated to the new integration platform, and administrators will be provided advance notice.
Complete online guides are available for configuration and use of the Virtual Office for NetSuite integration, below:
- Virtual Office Integration for NetSuite v2.x - Online Help for Agents

Keep in mind that 8x8 VO integrations like this one are not softphones.
They cannot be used as standalone phones from your PC.
Integrations are simple control panels for your existing 8x8 phone extension: Because they do not provide audio services, they must be used in conjunction with an 8x8 hardphone, Virtual Office Desktop, or Virtual Office Mobile.
