ATI seeks reliable, built-in-cloud provider, finds that and much more with RingCentral Partner Program

Based in the Chicago area, ATI has been connecting its customers with the right products and solutions since 1983. Its solid base of customers has trusted ATI to recommend, sell, and install phone systems, as well as to handle all of the ongoing support, for many years.

 

The value of cloud—and RingCentral partner

ATI knew it needed to add a unified cloud communications solution with a customer- and partner-focused provider to its portfolio in order to meet client demand while capitalizing on an exponentially growing market. After careful evaluation to determine which solutions are up to snuff and to the immaculate standards of its ownteam, ATI chose to add RingCentral to its portfolio for its complete solution set.

 

Winning together

ATI and RingCentral worked together to close a complex, on-premises replacement deal within an 88-day sales cycle. How did they close such a difficult deal so quickly? ATI differentiated itself by bringing engineering resources to the table, performing consulting services, helping with the install, and finding extraneous technology costs that could be displaced with RingCentral’s all inclusive solution, which replaced the customer’s end-of-life Cisco system. “We provided this customer with onsite service and support and worked with RingCentral in a unique way to ultimately cinch this deal,” says Mike Bergin, Sr. Sales Executive at ATI. ATI partnered with RingCentral to perform the implementation and adoption services for this customer and trained the users on how to use the new technology to ensure a smooth transition away from the previous provider.

 

A partner and a customer

As of last month, ATI is now a RingCentral customer itself. Previously a ShoreTel onpremises customer, ATI performed its own due diligence to determine who the best provider is in the market and who the team would be most comfortable migrating to while moving offices, and ATI determined that its ideal solution is RingCentral. “It certainly goes a long way when we talk to customers and we say ‘Hey, we were with ShoreTel but now we’re moving in a month and we’re migrating to RingCentral,'” says Bergin. “There’s definitely a good story there.” So, as ATI moves into its new facilities, every team member will be on the RingCentral platform. The transition will be simple and straightforward, as well. With on-premises, it would have been extremely expensive and taken a significant amount of time—and we all know the negative effects that down time has on businesses. Fortunately, RingCentral Office® is quick and easy to configure compared to conventional on-site business phone hardware. A three-step onboarding process helps with details such as network configuration and transferring numbers. This comprehensive process ensures that cloud phone service is implemented quickly and with minimal business disruption. It’s a true partnership that benefits RingCentral Partners and their customers.

It’s easy to let technology hinder your time management with so many distractions at your fingertips. But if you want to make time management and productivity a priority, technology can be a major help as well. From wireless solutions to cutting-edge apps and good old-fashioned (or new-fashioned) calendars, there are a myriad of ways to make sure you’re managing you time better.

Do a Productivity Assessment

To get a handle on time management, it’s a good idea to start with an assessment of how you actually spend your days. Time tracking applications like RescueTime will run in the background of your computer or browser to track how much time you spend on different sites and with different programs, allowing you to see just how many minutes (or hours!) you spend each day on social media, email, or other sites that may not be helping you with productivity. Time tracking apps like Toggl may also be helpful, though they require you to start and stop a timer to determine where your time is being spent.

Block Time

Once you have figured out where your time is going, consider using an application to layout how you would ideally be spending your hours at work. Time blocking can be a particularly effective way to do this with one blogger estimating it leads to 50% more productivity each week, turning a 40-hour workweek into 60 hours without spending any extra time. The process involves spending a bit of time at the end of each day to plan out the next work day, thereby dividing your day into blocks of productivity. You can do this simply, and offline, using a paper calendar or just a notebook. But for something a bit more technologically advanced, consider using a calendar app, whether it’s your Outlook calendar, Google calendar, or an app like Sunrise. Schedule out your daily tasks as if they were a meeting and end

Stay Organized

It probably goes without saying that being organized goes hand in hand with time management, but it’s also important to not spend so much time making to-do lists that you actually damage your productivity. Instead, set aside a small amount of time at the beginning of each day to identify 3 key tasks that you must complete before the end of the day. By narrowing things down significantly, you can need every day feeling accomplished and motivated. To Do apps like Remember the Milk and notebook apps like Evernote can be helpful in this pursuit, keeping tasks in one spot for easy review.

Improve Focus

You can’t make more time in the day, but you can improve your focus during the hours you do have. Time management techniques like Pomodoro allow you to work for a set period (generally 25 to 30 minutes) and then rest for a shorter period (5 to 15 minutes). This method can actually help you to be more creative and more productive throughout the day. Use pomodoro tracking apps like Pomotodo to keep track of your time and watch your productivity increase.

Change of Scenery

Need a creativity boost and a bit more focus? Consider taking a walk or sitting outside near your office. Being outdoors has been shown to encourage sharper thinking and spikes in creativity. Plus, with the right wireless solutions, working outside can be just as easy as working at your desk. Work on your mobile phone or bring a laptop and connect to your office wireless network for portability and productivity. In the end, managing your time so that you can be more productive is not just about getting more work done. When you manage your work schedule effectively, it means you have more time to spend outside of work not thinking about what’s coming up at the office. Good time management skills can actually lead to a happier life. When you let technology help you along the way, it’s that much easier. If time management still gives you a few issues check out this video and learn how a phone system can help fill in the gaps.
