2018 Gartner UCaaS Magic Quadrant: Positioned furthest to the right within the Leaders quadrant for completeness of vision and ability to execute

Article by ATI Partner David Sipes of RingCentral

We’re recognized once again as a Leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) worldwide. This year we outpaced the market and are positioned furthest to the right within the Leaders quadrant for completeness of vision and ability to execute. See the full report for more details.

We believe this distinction highlights our laser focus on innovation and delivering a world-class unified communications solution. RingCentral empowers IT leaders with the ability to exceed the communications requirements of today’s rapidly evolving digital workforce. These new requirements are rapidly eroding the foothold of legacy communications solutions. According to Gartner, “By 2021, 90% of IT leaders will not purchase new premises-based UC infrastructure — up from 50% today — because future cloud UC offerings will be far ahead in terms of features, functions, portals, analytics and dashboards.”

Delivering on the Promise of Collaborative Communications

Today’s workers are overwhelmed with the multitude of communications apps that are meant to improve collaboration yet are hindering productivity. Based on a recent survey by CITE Research, workers waste up to 60 minutes a day simply navigating between these apps. Our approach, Collaborative Communications, empowers people to work the way they want by putting collaboration at the center and enabling seamless integrations with enterprise workflows. For RingCentral, this is about delivering a truly unified communications experience that combines messaging, calling, and meeting, and simplifies the way you communicate, share content, and manage projects. It’s also about an open platform that lets you integrate these Collaborative Communications capabilities with core business applications, giving you the ability to customize workflows and create seamless experiences for end users.

In 2018, we delivered on several key milestones in support of our Collaborative Communications vision. The RingCentral App is an all-in-one voice, team messaging, and video conferencing solution that transforms the way people communicate and collaborate. Collaborative Meetings is a high quality, best-in-class video conferencing and collaboration solution that allows customers to connect from anywhere, and at any time. Collaborative Contact Center puts collaboration at the center of the customer experience, empowering businesses to solve customer issues quickly, while increasing sales volume and maximizing agent performance.

Collaborative Communications also enables seamless business workflows across workplace apps. Today, RingCentral offers over 150 published integrations with popular business applications via the RingCentral app gallery, with over 14,000 developers creating custom apps.

Further Global Expansion

RingCentral continues to expand into new global markets, extending our capabilities to support customers wherever they may be. RingCentral Global Office is now available in 39 countries, includes international SMS, and offers language services extended to Japanese and Portuguese. In 2018, we expanded our global footprint in Asia Pacific with a new office in Australia. We added new leadership, channel partnerships, and local product offerings. The experience is fully localized, with customers benefiting from direct peering with tier one local operators, multi-language support, and regional billing.

Continued Mid-Market and Enterprise Growth

Our efforts are bearing fruit and reflected in our Q2 2018 earnings results, with total revenue growing 34% year-over-year. Our mid-market and enterprise customer segments continued to grow by 80% year-over-year and are now a $237 million business. Our channel business also grew 100% year-over-year to $139 million.

2018 so far has been a record year for RingCentral. We’ve delivered new innovations, expanded into new global markets, and seen significant growth and momentum in the mid-market and enterprise. And we’re only getting started.

I want to thank our global customers, partners, and employees for their support and commitment to RingCentral and look forward to more great things to come.

Team messaging apps are growing quickly in popularity as the preferred “home base” for business communications. While most small business owners and entrepreneurs understand the value of team communication apps for their internal teams, smart SMBs are extending their use of team messaging to include external stakeholders.  The results are small businesses that get – and give – more value in their relationships with suppliers, contractors, and customers.

Team messaging extends communications 

Your employees need to stay up-to-date and engaged on time-bound projects – but so do contractors, consultants, and other partners all critical to the on-time, on-budget success of any project. Team messaging apps streamline all of these communication channels, providing easy, convenient, real-time collaboration across all team members — even those who aren’t on your official org chart.

Available best-in-class solutions for team communication offer guest-user functions that make it easy for those outside the organization to communicate and collaborate, at no additional cost. When choosing a team messaging platform, easy and unlimited guest-user functionality should top your criteria list.

Below we spotlight how four very different small businesse use team messaging to manage their businesses, streamline processes, and serve their customers better.  

Fast coordination for fast food.

If you’re looking for inspiration on how team messaging can completely change the way you do business, look no further.

Managing multiple businesses and franchises including two popular fast-food franchises — Subway and Carl’s Jr. — keeps serial entrepreneur Alex Mercado very busy. His business success rests on his ability to delegate efficiently and keep track of tasks in real-time. Entrepreneurs don’t get to clock out at 6pm, so being able to communicate on his schedule, and follow up on his staff and vendors schedules, is invaluable.

“It’s great to create tasks for my team, even late at night. And by the next morning they already know what to do and what to work on without even speaking to me. The best thing is that I can keep track of every task. Everyone knows what they need to do, and nobody forgets anything.”

Alex has team messaging channels set up in Glip to talk directly to each of his store managers. He has individual store channels set up so staff can discuss shift changes and other business needs in real time – a traditionally fractured process with limited visibility that requires a high volume of emails, text messages, and phone calls. He communicates with contractors and vendors through Glip, and has even used Glip to communicate with architects in charge of new location build. Alex has reimagined the way entrepreneurs do business, and the way team communications apps are used by small businesses.

Increasing speed and accuracy to increase sales

With 5,000 cities at play and an endless stream of potential real-time clients entering the funnel, corporate housing provider Travel Haven relies on fast, accurate, and detailed communication across sales staff and vendors to secure and fulfill housing deals. Between leases, furniture, utilities, amenities requests, and guest move-in, numerous communications streams have to occur simultaneously,  often on-the-go and in less than one day. The sheer efficiency of team communications allows Travel Haven’s sales team to manage more projects, and this has led to a significant increase in sales.

“One of the things we track is the number of orders a territory manager can handle in a day. It’s eight now. A year ago, it was five or six.”

While scaling up in volume, quality of service has not suffered thanks to team communication. Vendors across the world are able to liaise in real-time with account leads about guest needs, requests, and issues, ensuring all of the perfect details are in place for each unique incoming guest.  

“They all have very specialized tasks, but they all have to work together. Glip is probably the number one way they communicate.”

The best work tool for the best recreational lake in the country

In the news business, storylines, tips, events, and advertising opportunities evolve constantly. Editorial teams are often scattered and on the go. Project management is crucial to the success of any news outlet, especially one that covers what USA Today called “the best recreational lake in the country.” The team at LakeExpo.com quickly outgrew the text, email, and phone calls and needed a centralized communications platform to manage editorial calendars, story ideas, breaking news and tips, and advertising opportunities,

“I wanted to put everything in a single place. Chats, file sharing, task management, editorial calendar planning. All of it.”

Team messaging revolutionized the way LakeExpo.com does business. By providing one unified workspace that his entire team of remote workers could use to collaborate and communicate efficiently,  Editor-in-Chief Nathan Bechtold is now able to plan his editorial calendar weeks in advance and project manage his entire team’s work from wherever they are.

“I can create a task—say, a story I’d like someone to write—and then drop in the relevant information, ask a writer if she’d like to take it on, and then communicate with her over Glip throughout the entire project. When we’re done and the story is ready for publication, I can mark that task complete.”

Team communication also benefits his direct customers – businesses who advertise on LakeExpo.com. The ability to advise his advertisers in real-time about the local comings-and-goings his reporters cover daily benefits the not only outlet but the entire community it serves.  

“If a writer learns a new business is setting up shop on the Lake, she can let our sales reps know so they can give a heads-up to one of our advertisers who might be able to serve that business. That type of valuable real-time communication is so much easier now.”

It takes a village to massage your stress away

Between you and your next relaxing day at the spa are literal teams of people – therapists, estheticians, front-desk staff, and management to name just a few. These teams, equaling over 100 staff members, need to work in perfect harmony to keep the relaxation flowing at two Florida Massage Envy locations.

The team enhanced their workplace zen by rolling out team messaging company-wide, moving the coordination of time off, shift-coverage, and even company news to one centralized platform that everyone could access anytime from anywhere, and one that allows management and coworkers to know that important messages have been received and read.

“Glip has been a game changer for us when it comes to efficiently communicating with all of our employees. It helps us make sure nothing important slips through the cracks.”

Keeping the public relaxed is hard work. Team messaging not only streamlines the business communications of these two Massage Envy locations, it fosters strong bonds between colleagues and provides a channel for some well-deserved accolades and levity.  

“People also have lots of fun using Glip to send funny or inspiring little animated images to each other. It’s a great way to cheer on your teammates and keep everyone’s spirits high.”

Ready to get started?

With the right team messaging solution, small businesses like yours can enhance communication, collaboration and teamwork — while also providing better customer service.

See how Glip, RingCentral’s free team messaging app that increases your work productivity by empowering your team to communicate and collaborate in real time, can work for you.

While most businesses have adopted some type of cloud-based technology, not all of them have implemented a unified multi-media communications platform that integrates phones, chat, email, web conferencing, and file sharing into a single cloud-based platform. UCaaS offers many benefits such as mobility, improved voice quality and exceptional reliability that Broadsoft predicts more than half of all organizations will adopt by 2020.

 

There are several ways that you can optimize your customer’s business savings by deploying UCaaS, outlined below are three considerations.

 

compass

 

Enable Global Collaboration. UCaaS allows businesses to take geography out of the equation when hiring talent. With unemployment rates low, it’s already difficult for organizations to fill vacant positions from limited talent pools. Out of necessity, some employers are using alternative methods to find talent by utilizing freelancers and contractors and actively recruiting non-traditional workers.

 

UCaaS enables employers to readily hire contract workers and employees alike that reside in different time zones—and even different countries—while retaining the ability to offer a collaborative, team environment. Some of the ways UCaaS can enable collaboration and communication include:

 

  • Intelligence-based productivity features. These features can include automated access to information and files team members need.
  • Mobile features like multimedia meetings that integrate features such as video conferencing, screen sharing and video chatting as well as click-to-call options.
  • Built-in project management capabilities that allows users to assign tasks, attach files or communications, or create projects.

As an illustration of this, a global manufacturing company with more than 300 locations around the world had separate voice and video infrastructures in place, which was hindering global collaboration between teams. They also had numerous third-party endpoints and gateways as well as complicated integration requirements.

 

The solution was to implement a single UC solution throughout the entire organization. Once the UC solution had been deployed, the company gained a unified global dial plan integrated with business video to support any-to-any collaboration. All of their existing third-party endpoints were integrated, and today full interoperability exists between Tier 1, Tier 2, internal, external, polycom, and desktop video endpoints and devices, thus enabling simple and robust means of immediate global communication and collaboration throughout the organization.

 

sociallock

 

Incorporate social media. Social media can be integrated with cloud UC functionalities, so that organizations can better understand the mindsets/needs/wants of their customers.

 

According to Jimmy Rohampton, Forbes contributor, millennials have a strong preference for social technology-based modes of work, including social tools for employee recognition, workplace learning, and collaboration. Employee engagement as well as customer happiness can be improved with a UCaaS solutions by encouraging:

 

  • Real-time feedback. Increase agility by leveraging social media’s real-time features to promote internal collaboration and engage with employees and customers immediately.
  • Improve customer service. By leveraging your CRM together with social tools, you can aggregate customer feedback from various social media networks, enabling your organization to more fully understand your customers’ needs and potentially be empowered to proactively address problems.

A mid-sized company, which helps its customers create custom photo books and gifts, realized the number of inquiries they were getting via their social media channels (primarily Facebook) was outpacing their “temporary” workflow, which involved their Social Media Specialist copying the messages and comments received, pasting them into an email which they then forwarded to the Customer Support department. Those emails were then put in a queue via their CRM with all the inquiries from the website and inbound calling center. Once Customer Support had responded to the Social Media Specialist’s email, they then had to go back into Facebook and post the appropriate response and/or direct them to reach out to Customer Support directly—every single time. If a conversation ensued, this could get very cumbersome, and the immediacy of the platform was completely negated.

 

By integrating the social media platform with the UCaaS solution, the Customer Support people were able to engage directly with their customers via Facebook, and there was a noticeable uptick in leads converted from social media in the months that followed. 

 

mobilesec

 

Improve the security of mobile technology. As BYOD (bring your own device) becomes more commonplace among organizations of all sizes, there is a corresponding increase in the security challenges being faced by IT departments. A cloud UC system allows access via a single app rather than juggling a variety of apps that haven’t been approved by IT. Companies can reduce or potentially eliminate risks associated with unapproved file-sharing software or employees who may download data directly to their personal devices by implementing cloud-based access to sensitive information.

 

Although BYOD security concerns aren’t eliminated with UCaaS, providing employees a central point for accessing work-related communications does decrease the risks associated with the BYOD movement. Additionally, by providing a convenient, centralized way to securely access information, it does encourage employees to behave in more secure ways.

 

Take for example a small midwestern school district who didn’t have enough computers for every student and wanted to enable a BYOD program to their schools. To do this, the district would need to make a variety of improvements to their network, including replacing multiple PBX systems at the various buildings.

 

The district began by deploying a UC solution in the district office and connecting schools one at a time. By implementing a UC system, they managed both the wired and wireless networks simultaneously and continually save money on technician visits, since the network administrator can manage various systems from a single platform.

 

UCaaS allows business of all sizes an incredible amount of flexibility and money-saving options to expand their communication and collaboration tools. UC can be scaled up or down in real-time while also having the ability to adopt new technologies, immediately. There is also a huge benefit from mobile-first, user-friendly tools that are designed to evolve alongside the evolution of a company’s collaboration habits.

 

We’ve highlighted only three of the many solutions and features that can be added to a UCaaS customer over time, based on ever-changing business and technology needs. Ensuring you are well-versed in the multiple ways UCaaS can help solve various challenges—alone or in conjunction with an integration—you are setting yourself (and your customer) up for success. Delivering a single, globally-accessible communications platform is setting the stage for you to play a starring role in your customers’ digital transformation journey.

How The Cloud Can Improve Business Communications

Article by ATI Partner Fernanda Elizalde, Marketing Communications Associate – Nextiva

Communication is a critical aspect of business operations, whether your customers are collaborating with fellow employees or seeking new clients. The cloud has changed the way businesses communicate, as an innovative solution which is transcending communications. Flexible cloud-based solutions enable employees to communicate regardless of their geographic location.

Technological advancements have improved productivity and lowered operational costs, allowing greater productivity in the workplace. The ability to access communication tools from anywhere in the world can be leveraged to great advantage, especially in a constantly evolving business landscape. By failing to capitalize on the proficiency of cloud technologies, customers run the risk of getting left behind. This underlines the importance of cloud-based solutions.

But how exactly can the cloud improve business communications? If you’re curious about the specifics, fortunately you’re in the right place.

Here are some of the top ways the cloud can improve business communications:

Master Remote Working

Work environments once relied on everyone being in the same location, which was restrictive in relation to expansive goals. In today’s business culture, it’s impossible to grow in this environment, especially when working across different time zones. With cloud computing, efficiency is enhanced because employees can work from anywhere in the world. This creates a level of convenience which makes for a happier, more productive staff. The ability to work remotely creates freedom and flexibility, while reducing the costs associated with buying fixed assets. Companies can also hire from a much larger talent pool. Cloud communication services also facilitate audio and video conferencing, essential for the growth of modern businesses.

It Costs Less Than Premise-Based Solutions

The cloud will change your customers approach to expense management, which will ultimately improve their bottom line. Companies conventionally needed to acquire phone systems upfront, but cloud systems are paid for on a month-to-month basis. What’s useful is they only pay for the services they need, meaning they won’t accrue costs on communication channels which are not used. By not needing to purchase hardware and other devices, they’ll reduce replacement costs significantly. Instead, they can focus on upgrading features which benefit their organization the most, with access to the latest and greatest software.

Employees Can Work On Multiple Devices

Information stored on the cloud can be accessed from any device that can connect to the internet. Organizations can consequently capitalize on the benefits of working from mobile devices, which include greater mobility, flexibility, and convenience. With mobile providers offering faster internet connections, employees are afforded the luxury of communicating on the go, enhancing access and efficiency tenfold. Key business processes can be executed with ease, with real-time communication that’s important in today’s fast-moving society. Employees are not required to use specific devices, allowing collaboration within a business network from tablets, smartphones, or desktops.

Gain a Competitive Edge

Small organizations can compete with bigger companies if they leverage cloud communication methods. They can scale up operations quicker than ever before, without being held back by costs. Small businesses can gradually increase their cloud usage over time, depending on budget and scale of growth. With a self-sufficient communication service like the cloud, small businesses don’t need to worry about the expenses associated with hiring IT staff, often a restrictive factor. In business climates which are dominated by the big dogs, the ability to engage cheaply and quickly, with quality in mind, offers small companies a competitive edge vital for success.

Less Outsourcing & More Decentralization

Though outsourcing has its advantages, businesses can suffer from less quality control, a lack of customer focus, and hidden costs. Fortunately, the cloud’s rise to prominence has eliminated reliance on outsourcing, where employers can hire full-time employees who are not in the same location as company headquarters. With business communications conducted globally, between diverse employees, companies can benefit from decentralization. More job opportunities have been generated, allowing people to apply their skillsets accordingly. This is facilitated by video conferencing, which has become an integral component of business communications.

Go Global

Organizations were once restricted by geographic location, where technological limitations made it difficult to extend beyond local communities. This impacted small companies the most, who didn’t have access to the cloud features which allow organizations to expand. Because smaller companies can now utilize cloud-based solutions, at reduced costs, everyone has the capacity to collaborate with global partners. This means you can go global if you are a small business, facilitated by the enhancement of business communications.

Business communication tools are rapidly changing as the cloud’s capabilities enhance. Small businesses have the opportunity to reach goals which would’ve seemed unlikely in years past, providing they’re willing to adapt. Enjoy the improved quality of business communications with cloud technologies, and remember, evolve or risk becoming extinct.

The Power of SD-WAN with MPLS and UCaaS


THE STATE OF SD-WAN

Demand for SD-WAN continues to grow. Fueled by organizations need for greater bandwidth, increased usage of cloud-based applications and continued trend of remote workforces. End-users needs are changing network traffic patterns and, in turn, require a more efficient connectivity solution that offers a sophisticated foundation for productivity, voice, and data quality.

MPLS + SD-WAN

IT leaders are realizing that the technology doesn’t need to replace MPLS or other connectivity solutions. Instead, SD-WAN complements them and enhances network functionalities, providing transparency and a better end-user experience. When implementing SD-WAN, your existing network does not go away, but instead becomes the underlay technology. MPLS, for example, is still needed for guaranteed QoS end-to-end, particularly for verticals that require secure and compliant transmissions of data.

UCaaS + SD-WAN

SD-WAN is a perfect match for latency sensitive voice and video applications, such as UCaaS. SD-WAN can improve voice quality, reducing issues around packet loss, jitter, etc. that make for a poor user experience. For example, a voice application can run on one internet connection and be failed over to another in the event there’s an issue, maintaining the voice session, without the user being impacted.

No Cost. No Obligation. SD-WAN Assessment. Sign Up Today.


SD-WAN should be paired with MPLS when:

• You have an existing MPLS network with a diverse and growing portfolio of applications. SD-WAN would allow for traffic segmentation of critical applications to MPLS while offloading less important traffic such as web browsing to best effort cable circuits.
• You do not have auto-failover. SD-WAN architecture is inherently designed to support auto failover because it accepts multiple WAN links, drastically reducing failover time from MPLS to MPLS or public IP.
• You want visibility into the applications running across the network, as well as control of the paths they can/cannot take.
• You have remote branches with limited IT staff. SD-WAN enables IT staff to manage routing functionality and traffic prioritization at all sites from one web portal.
• You have less intelligent IT systems at the branch and do not want to pay for MPLS bandwidth for non-critical traffic.

SD-WAN should be paired with UCaaS when:

• You do not have a solution in place to route traffic and apply priority for voice solutions. SD-WAN routes traffic via business policies to enhance performance, reliability and customer/user experience.
• You are using two different providers for network and voice. SD-WAN encrypts users traffic, further protecting information transmitted.
• You have multiple locations using voice and growing. SD-WAN easily scales, so user can quickly add cloud-based services.
• You are looking for cost-effective, SD-WAN functionalities for its voice solutions. SD-WAN delivers voice and video apps using any cost-effective, readily available transport method (Cable, DSL, etc.)

How to effectively communicate collaborate & control with your business phone system

Business phone systems traditionally haven’t been considered much beyond their ability to connect callers. For most businesses, telecom is a line item on an expense budget—no thought is given to how the technology actually can help improve your company’s bottom line. The truth is, your business phone system should be considered one of the most important assets in your company. It’s not just a tool for connecting calls; it’s a tool for creating and building relationships and for improving productivity. When choosing the ideal system for your company, look for the three Cs: communication, collaboration and control. Each are important elements and should be considered carefully in your purchasing decision.

Communication

It’s not just dial tone or voicemail. An effective system will have robust calling features that enhance the user experience, such as personalized call handling and presence, conferencing, voicemail to email, interactive voice response voicemail access and more. Integration with third-party business systems, such as integration with CRM systems, can further enhance the user experience and create a top-notch customer experience as well. Above all, the system must be simple to operate, so your employees can get the most out of their communications environment.

Collaboration

A good system also includes collaboration tools that are not only seamless to the communications experience but also easy to use. Instant messaging, web and audio conferencing, peer-to-peer video chat, desktop sharing and file transfer capabilities can increase your employees’ productivity by giving them the tools they need to communicate beyond voice, effectively and easily.

Control

For some businesses that don’t want to manage their business phone system, a cloud system is a good option. ShoreTel has the same robust functionality in one platform whether for cloud or for onsite, or even a combination of both.  Both the CLOUD and ONSITE solutions are end-to-end, as ShoreTel provides the phones, system software and applications. ONSITE is perfect for companies that like to control their apps in-house and have the IT resources to do it, while CLOUD is geared to companies that no longer want to manage their phone system or are light on IT resources. Your employees need more than just dial tone to communicate effectively. Discover what an onsite unified communications and collaboration environment can do to enhance their productivity. ShoreTel Connect ONSITE is a feature-rich yet cost-effective option that also provides a future path to the cloud while leveraging your onsite investment. If your current business phone system is missing one of the three C’s, it’s time to see how a new system can help improve your company’s bottom line.
