As COVID-19 started to rear its head, and the world went home, organizations around the globe were faced with the fact that if operations aren’t virtual; they aren’t happening. This mass migration hit higher education mid-semester, accelerating digital transformation initiatives to ensure faculty, students and staff stay connected.

A number of institutions of higher learning turned to RingCentral to manage the shift to remote operations with a reliable, integrated and secure cloud communications platform.

Berkeley College is able to overcome the obstacles of transitioning six locations between New York and New Jersey to support online learning for its entire student body. In addition, its staff is benefiting greatly from the Salesforce integration and real-time dashboards to enhance experience.

At Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU), RingCentral was the solution chosen to replace its on-prem communications system. SNHU isn’t burdening IT, as with RingCentral, the unified platform is easily managed, and when disaster strikes, system architecture ensures business continuity.   

Forth Worth, Texeas-based Texan Christian University (TCU) found RingCentral the right partner to support the migration of almost 1,000 faculty and staff to remote operations, enabling near business as usual operations from any device within 24hrs.

“Millions of people around the world are learning how to go about their daily lives via new generation cloud communication platforms and we believe the experience should always be seamless,” said Anand Eswaran, president and chief operating officer, RingCentral. “At RingCentral, we are steadfast in our focus on the future of work and remote learning, and we are pleased that we could enable these institutions to modernize their communications infrastructure so they are still connected, even when physically separated.”
