Vodafone and RingCentral launch new cloud communications platform

Vodafone and RingCentral have announced the launch of ‘Vodafone Business UC with RingCentral’, a cloud communications platform designed for workforce collaboration and remote working.

This new unified communications offering provides secure and reliable communications tools including team messaging, video meetings, and a cloud phone system.

The two companies said the platform will help UK-based organisations prepare for the upcoming shutdown of ISDN and PSTN networks. Organisations can move from existing infrastructure on to this single, unified app.

Nick Gliddon, business director, Vodafone said, “We’re excited to be working with RingCentral to bring to market a unified communications solution that meets a real business need.  This platform will help people work effectively and securely no matter where they are.”

Yves Desmet, vice president, global service providers EMEA, RingCentral, added, “[Through] bringing together the power and strengths of Vodafone with RingCentral’s leadership in unified communications, we are giving people the communications capabilities they need to get their work done, through a single mobile app. Additionally, our open platforms and joint innovation are paving new paths to productivity and engagement around the world.”

Vodafone Business UC with RingCentral includes real-time analytics, extensive call management, and team collaboration and task management capabilities, which will be available to businesses of all sizes. These features can be run standalone or integrated with various business applications, including Microsoft 365 and CRM, ERP and Helpdesk services.
