Verizon Business and RingCentral are joining for a strategic partnership to bring cloud-based communications and work applications to enterprise clients.

As the global workforce slowly enters back into the office, the two companies decided to combine talents and resources to provide large-scaled businesses with the necessary tools to maintain a productive hybrid work environment. As a part of this new partnership, Verizon and RingCentral will be working to develop RingCentral with Verizon, a new integrated unified-communications-as- a-service (UCaaS) solution that will provide businesses with team messaging, video meetings, cloud-based phone capabilities, as well as complete IT support and coverage.

“We truly believe this partnership creates additional value for our customers, and we are excited to innovate together with Verizon to deliver end-to-end digital transformation solutions that embed RingCentral’s Message, Video, Phone technology across the enterprise ecosystem,” said Anand Eswaran, president and chief operating officer, RingCentral. “As business communications including team messaging and video become critical in enabling people to work from anywhere, this partnership with Verizon helps us meet the ever-changing customer needs.”

The new relationship marks an important step for the growth strategy of Verizon Business, as the company hopes to gain momentum as a major player in the network-as-a-service field. The companies hope to capitalize on emerging technologies like 5G, SD-WAN, and mobile-edge computing, and provide clients with the diverse communications methods needed to thrive in the post-pandemic economy.

“The ‘work from anywhere’ model will continue to be a major factor for businesses, and we’ve seen the importance of cloud communications growing stronger for enterprises in the past year,” said Tami Erwin, CEO at Verizon Business. “Through this partnership, we’re leveraging our best-in-class network with RingCentral’s expertise in cloud collaboration to deliver game-changing cloud-based solutions that meet the needs of enterprises today and future proof how they operate moving forward.”
