Global cloud communications provider RingCentral (News - Alert) has announced the release of RingCentral Rise™, a new unified communications platform specifically designed for service providers.

The cloud revolution is currently in full swing, and executive leaders are investing heavily in new communications options to meet the new challenges of a hybrid workforce. But existing legacy infrastructure, high costs, and slow installations are making it difficult for some organizations to adapt, a fact which developers at RingCentral understand well. Rise™ (an acronym for resources, innovation, system integration, and experiences) offers service providers the ability to develop their own uniquely designed co-branded communications solutions for businesses and enterprises, in an effort to make this transition hassle free.

“RingCentral has a vision of bringing the very best cloud communications capabilities to businesses everywhere. Central to that vision is partnering with the world’s leading services providers to provide their customers with the industry’s leading team messaging, video meetings, and enterprise-ready phone system,” said Homanyoun Razavi, Executive VP and Head of Global Service Providers, RingCentral. “With Rise, we can accelerate the speed to market and the speed of innovation, with an industry-first open platform for service providers backed by a dedicated business unit. We’re excited to jointly innovate across 5G, Mobile Edge (News - Alert) Computing (MEC), Internet of Things (IoT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to bring differentiated products to market that humanize cloud communications with blazing speed and new ways of working.”

RingCentral Rise™ is currently being utilized by a number of notable global brands with great success, including MCM, TELUS (News - Alert), and AT&T.

“The RingCentral partnership came at exactly the right time when we were looking for something fresh, different and out-of-the-box for our customers.”commented Benito Ohara, CEO, MCM “RingCentral is aligned with our philosophy to adapt communications around the customer, offering speed, flexibility, and open integrations.”
