RingCentral (NYSE:RNG), a provider of cloud business communications solutions, and Tech Data, one of the world’s largest distributors of IT products and services, have announced a new agreement to enable Tech Data’s channel of solution providers in the U.S. to sell RingCentral’s cloud communications solution to business customers.
RingCentral Office is a complete cloud business phone system that’s designed for today’s mobile and dispersed workforces. It provides a solution alternative to complex, on-premise legacy phone systems. RingCentral Office keeps employees connected to customers and colleagues wherever they are, on a variety of business and personal devices, including smartphones, tablets, computers and desk phones. RingCentral’s offering is available through Tech Data’s StreamOne Solutions Store.
RingCentral Office would be simple to activate and manage, while it can easily scale as a company grows. For businesses that want to integrate their cloud communications solution with other business applications in their environment, RingCentral offers a comprehensive set of application program interfaces (APIs) that enable custom integrations and enhanced workflows.
In addition, RingCentral would seamlessly integrate with other leading cloud-based business applications such as Salesforce, Google, Box, Zendesk and Dropbox.
“There’s a large global market opportunity in cloud communications,” said Stacey Nethercoat, Vice President of Product Marketing, TDCloud at Tech Data. “As the number of devices expand, businesses continue to need ways to make communications a seamless, secure and reliable experience. Tech Data’s TDCloud program gives providers like RingCentral a powerful way to boost their channel distribution and effectively go-to-market to reach business customers. We’re pleased to team with RingCentral and provide our resellers the opportunity to tap into the growing market opportunity and deliver one of the most innovative, feature-rich Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) solutions available.”
Tech Data’s TDCloud business unit is a team of cloud experts dedicated to supporting its channel of solution providers through education, enablement, and adoption of cloud and subscription-based services. TDCloud is powered by Tech Data’s StreamOne platform – an automated buying, selling, provisioning and billing system for cloud and subscription-based services technology that scales business and operational scope.
RingCentral’s channel program would enable their partners to rapidly expand into the cloud communications market. According to RingCentral, the cloud proposition is “simple to understand and requires minimum technical training. With a world-class cloud platform, free training, support, and instant activation, RingCentral partners can close deals quickly and accelerate their revenue growth.”
