Atos will add RingCentral as the preferred provider of Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) solutions. Atos and RingCentral will enter into a System Integrator (SI) relationship and will introduce a co-branded UCaaS solution. The co-branded solution will be a key part of Atos’ Digital Workplace client and partner offer, complementing its existing OpenScape UC solutions.
“We are excited to welcome Atos as our first global Systems Integrations partner, creating opportunities for RingCentral to provide our global cloud communications platform to large, marquee customers in Atos’ digital transformation practice,” said Vlad Shmunis, founder, chairman and CEO, RingCentral. “Atos provides a new dimension of long-term growth as we continue to lead the charge in UC to UCaaS transformation with our unwavering commitment to innovation and strong culture of strategic partnerships.”
The co-branded solution will help grow its global market opportunity for larger digital transformation projects. This news comes after Avaya recently announced their own joint solution (Avaya Cloud Office) with RingCentral back in October.
“RingCentral’s world-class communications platform combined with Atos’ proven leadership in Digital Workplace solutions provides our customers the opportunity to further streamline their digital transformation projects across all lines of business IT,” said Elie Girard, CEO, Atos. “With an Atos installed base ranging across large enterprises and governmental agencies, we are excited about the potential of the new strategic partnership.”
Along with this strategic partnership, RingCentral will acquire IP from Atos, including a portfolio of certain patents.
