package request for PDQ Connect - 8x8 Work

This is the software used for using the 8x8 VOIP solution. It is the softphone that connects to the phone services. 8x8 does a good job of rolling out updates (about once a month), but that also means people using 8x8 need to update their custom package once a month as well. 

The command for a silent install goes as follows.

msiexec.exe /i "\\pathtofile\8x8work.msi" /qn

success code 0
