RingCentral Introduces Unified Mobile App

With the evolution of communications, companies have begun to demand the same features on the go they would find from the comfort of the office. The mobile workforce wants to see the digital age deliver a new generation of solutions capable of offering communication and collaboration regardless of location or device.

RingCentral announced the arrival of a new mobile app that promises to reinvent the communications and collaboration experience with a new unified mobile app.

“Companies have long struggled with breaking down the silos created by fragmented communications. Also, collaboration today is core to the way people want to work, and why we’ve made team messaging a foundational component of our cloud communications platform,” said Kira Makagon, EVP of Innovation, RingCentral. “We’re excited to introduce the new RingCentral unified mobile app, which combines team messaging, video meetings, and enterprise telephony into a single and intuitive experience for greater employee engagement.”

The app is collaboration-centric, offering a messaging-based experience, with the ability to loop in both internal and external team members supporting features like file share, notes, tasks, scheduling, and more. With integrated video meetings, users can start or join a meeting though a single click. The app also enables enterprise voice capabilities, including SMS and the ability to seamlessly transition an interaction from chat to a voice call.

“We’re seeing a convergence taking place between collaboration, cloud communications, and video and web meetings. Unified Communications is evolving to support the way people want to work and collaborate, and unified messaging is a fundamental part of that evolution. RingCentral has been helping to lead this change by tightly integrating its industry-leading team messaging capabilities with best-in-class enterprise voice and video conferencing capabilities, which is one of the reasons why we’ve recognized RingCentral as a 2018 leader in the Aragon Research Globe for Mobile Collaboration,” said Jim Lundy, CEO, Aragon Research.

Unified communications is a 24x7x365 proposition in the digital age, and knowing this, providers are innovating to deliver the tools capable of carrying organizations well into the future.
