RingCentral unveils new webinar solution

RingCentral has announced the beta launch of RingCentral Webinar. The new solution is available to customers as an add-on to RingCentral Message Video Phone.

The new product, which can be accessed through a web browser or through RingCentral’s unified application, aims to simplify webinars from set up, to hosting, and measuring events for up to 10,000 attendees.

RingCentral Webinar is a secure solution that allows users to plan and host a variety of webinars including all-company meetings, training sessions, or marketing events. It provides customisation, APIs, integrations, and analytics for registration, promotion, and tracking purposes.

Kira Makagon, chief innovation officer, RingCentral, said, “We’ve all been part of webinars and they’re not the easiest to join and when it comes to hosting them, they can be even more nerve wracking. At RingCentral our focus is to simplify communications and collaboration technology so it’s easy to set-up, use, and manage–with RingCentral Webinar, we’re doing exactly that.”

RingCentral Webinar is available in beta to all customers in the United Kingdom, continental Europe, the US, Canada, and Australia.

General availability is expected in summer 2022, when features will also be expanded to support marketing use cases and include more features to support and track webinar success across the lead generation lifecycle.
