Zenica JoyApr 03, 2017

Today’s mobile, distributed workforce needs an innovative and easy-to-use unified communications platform that enables organizations to connect and collaborate with their customers, suppliers, partners, and workers. To address the growing demand for different modes of communication and collaboration solutions that can enhance end-user experience, RingCentral, a leading provider of enterprise cloud unified communications and collaboration solutions, has introduced the new version of the RingCentral Office.

As the company’s next-generation flagship product, RingCentral Office enhances user experience through collaborative-centric communications. Combining new team messaging, artificial intelligence (AI) support, chatbot, and 40 cutting-edge integrations, RingCentral Office delivers unified communications (UC) in a single solution.

Bringing New Collaborative Communications Experience to the Modern Workforce

The average US knowledge workers make use of at least five tools to communicate at work. Among the 500 people surveyed, 83% think that having communication tools fully integrated into their office productivity applications would improve their productivity, according to a study commissioned by RingCentral last March 2017. This same study also reviewed that 8 out of 10 employees would want their IT departments to provide them with the necessary tools and support they need to work remotely.

Indeed, in the digital era where organizations must be able to collaborate more effectively in order to make faster and smarter decisions, businesses require new communication tools that enable their agile teams to be more productive. RingCentral addresses this need with the launched of their flagship product, the RingCentral Office.

Vlad Shmunis, the founder, chairman, and CEO at RingCentral, shared how their new offering can help today’s mobile, dynamic workforce. “RingCentral Office is the industry's leading solution that goes beyond unifying different modes of communication; it offers an all-in-one collaborative communications experience that is further enhanced by state-of-the-art chatbot and AI-based technology." “RingCentral is the only cloud provider to combine enterprise-grade telephony, audio conferencing, video, meetings, team messaging and collaboration in a single, easy-to-use solution. We believe it will transform workplace productivity and help workers get more work done with less effort,”  Shmunis added.RingCentral Office

Empowering Business Leaders, IT Teams, and Employees with RingCentral Office

Today’s evolving business landscape has workers operating on overdrive with the use of complex and unintegrated tools that hinder productivity and efficiency. IT teams are also straining to support organizations’ increasing global and mobile communications needs because the tools are poor but expensive to deploy. Additionally, many enterprises have been weighed down due to the inflexibility of their legacy on-premise systems.

Sam Eakin, the operations manager at Hawk Ridge Systems, a global provider of 3D engineering solutions, also shared their story on how RingCentral had helped boost their business productivity. “We were looking to replace our existing communication system with one that would also give us a complete and integrated unified communications and collaboration solution.” “Having a single solution from RingCentral to collaborate, share files, and make calls gives us much greater productivity. It’s much easier to get work done with our teams and customers, and as a result, we’ve seen cross-functional project timelines shrink from three months down to one month.”
