RingCentral provides cloud-based business communications and collaboration solutions that is in high demand by today's distributed and mobile workforces. This has led to an explosive growth of UCaaS adoption as SMBs and enterprises looks to introduce new levels of efficiency in their organizations. To address this demand and make itself available to a new customer base, RingCentral formed a partnership with Intelisys.

Intelisys was established in 1994 with the goal of exposing top producing telecom sales agents, VARs and IT solution providers to new customers so they can increase the streams of revenue for their business. According to the company, it is the leading technology service distributor of business communications services in the country, providing voice, data, access, cable, collaboration, wireless and cloud solutions. It is currently under contract with more than 130 of the world's leading telecom carriers, cloud services providers and technology partners.

For RingCentral, this partnership will allow it to extend its global cloud communications footprint by being part of Intelisys’ established international presence.

"We are already seeing significant demand from our Sales Partner community for RingCentral applications. They have clearly moved way upmarket to where our Partners live; and as UCaaS adoption continues to accelerate, we expect a bright future with RingCentral," said Andrew Pryfogle, senior vice president, cloud transformation, for Intelisys.

Recognized as a Leader in the worldwide UCaaS industry by Gartner, RingCentral has more than  350,000 businesses that have come to experience the many benefits of hosted communication services. The comprehensive solutions the company provides feature, unified communications, cloud PBX, auto receptionist, call recording, toll-free numbers, video conferencing, business SMS and much more.

The adoption of cloud-based business communication applications is being driven by the accelerated adoption of enterprises that are migrating to the cloud. The position Intelisys holds in this segment with its Intelisys Sales Partners is going to give RingCentral’s comprehensive cloud communications and collaboration platform greater opportunities across the country and globally.

Zane Long, vice president of channel sales at RingCentral, said, "Intelisys is a recognized player in the channel and has a sharp focus on the cloud, which makes them a natural fit with our channel program goals. As part of their network, we will enable their trusted Sales Partners to deliver the most innovative, secure, and reliable cloud communications applications to their business customers."

According to Transparency Market Research, by 2018 the market value for VoIP and unified communications will be $69.1B, which represents a great opportunity not only for Intelisys' Sales Partners but also RingCentral.
