Verizon Business has announced a new strategic partnership with RingCentral to bring cloud-based enterprise communication solutions with integrated team messaging, video meetings, and a cloud phone system to enterprise businesses.
Verizon Business and RingCentral plan to develop a new co-branded service combining Verizon’s network solutions with RingCentral’s UCaaS platform.
“The ‘work from anywhere’ model will continue to be a major factor for businesses, and we’ve seen the importance of cloud communications growing stronger for enterprises in the past year,” said Tami Erwin, CEO at Verizon Business. “Through this partnership, we’re leveraging our best-in-class network with RingCentral’s expertise in cloud collaboration to deliver game-changing cloud-based solutions that meet the needs of enterprises today and future proof how they operate moving forward.”
The RingCentral with Verizon offer will be a key component of the Verizon Business network-as-a-service strategy, which includes 5G, mobile edge computing, SD WAN, and security.
Delivery of this digital transformation solution seems especially well suited to address the communications needs of distributed workforces, while at the same time providing synergies for both companies.
