RingCentral, Inc., a leading provider of cloud business communication solutions, today announced a deep integration of RingCentral Office® with Microsoft Office 365. It seamlessly blends RingCentral’s cloud business phone system with a leading cloud productivity work environment, giving joint customers a powerful solution that embeds RingCentral into their core productivity workflow.
“RingCentral’s innovation in cloud business communications is helping Office 365 customers become even more productive wherever they are. We’re pleased to work with RingCentral. The RingCentral integration is a great example of how being a member of the Microsoft Partner Network benefits our mutual customers and provides more choice and simplicity in how customers communicate and get work done,” said Pat Schlight, Senior Director, US Partner Group at Microsoft.
RingCentral for Office 365 creates a feature-rich business communications hub enabling users to communicate and collaborate in real-time with an easy-to-use interface that is simple to deploy and manage. Customers will enjoy an enterprise-grade cloud PBX solution from RingCentral that offers cloud-based business calling, SMS text messaging, conferencing, and web meeting capabilities. Users can click-to-call any phone number from within the Office 365 interface, and make outbound calls to phone numbers and calls internally across offices using the corporate directory. Contacts are automatically combined between RingCentral and Outlook and are easily searchable within a single interface. Users can also set up online video meetings and audio conferences that automatically appear in the Office 365 calendar.
“The tremendous growth and sizable install base of the Office 365 productivity suite makes this integration an important milestone for us,” said Vlad Shmunis, founder and CEO of RingCentral. “The convergence of business applications and communications has long been contemplated by the industry, and here at RingCentral, we’re making it happen.”
The integration with Office 365 is just the latest step in demonstrating RingCentral’s open platform leadership and the capabilities of the RingCentral Connect Platform. Other examples of RingCentral Office integration partners include Google, Oracle, Salesforce.com, Zendesk, and others.
