  • Riding the Innovation Wave: Top 2020 Unified Communications Trends Recorded: Nov 24 2020 37 mins
    Nishit Rao - VP of Product Marketing, RingCentral
    2020 is a year of uncertainty. But one thing is certain; the way we work has changed forever. Business Communication preferences and practices have had to change overnight to adapt for the new normal.

    Business communication requirements have changed and a new segment of workers who never had a choice to work from home are now forced to not only work from home, but to keep similar productivity levels. This has placed new demands on unified communications tools. Let's discuss the top three trends of 2020 shaping the Unified Communications business.
  • Unified, Efficient, Agile: The Digital Workplace of the Future—and How to Prepar Recorded: Nov 17 2020 59 mins
    Naveed Husain - VP, Public Sector & Education, RingCentral Erik Linask - Group Editorial Director, TMCnet
    The arrival of a new cloud-based digital communication landscape—centered around always-on connectivity, multiple mobile devices, and an ever-growing number of communications modes—makes it clear that the way we work has forever changed.

    In this webinar, learn how to evaluate these new cloud communication and collaboration technologies in light of three key differentiators:

    * How to ensure you have integrated suites and connection to other mission-critical apps
    * How communication and collaboration technology can make your company more agile and innovative
    * How you can improve business workflows, drive efficiency, and harness intelligence
  • How to Transform Your Contact Center in the Remote Work Era Recorded: Nov 10 2020 69 mins
    Ian Jacobs, Max Ball, And Erik Linask
    Working from home has become the new norm and providing business continuity across your customer service organization is crucial to your bottom line. If your contact center is not prepared with the right tools, processes, and agent support to work from home, you may be putting your company's revenue at risk.

    Join, our guest, Ian Jacobs, Principal Analyst, from Forrester Research, as he breaks down the right way to move your company’s contact center to a WFH agent model today, what strategies you can implement, and benefits of continuing WFH agents in the future:

    * Planning your transition: using a cloud-based contact center platform to maintain business continuity as you enable WFH agents.
    * Managing your operations: providing admins and supervisors with the tools they need to monitor WFH agents and make changes without needing IT help.
    * Looking forward: reducing cost and improving productivity with a remote contact center.
  • How to Build a Better Workplace with Collaborative Communications Recorded: Dec 5 2018 23 mins
    Jim Payne, Senior Product Marketing Manager, RingCentral
    Cloud technologies are dramatically reshaping how we all work and live, and businesses today are under tremendous pressure to keep up with the pace of change. The resulting disruptive technologies and business models are creating new opportunities to engage with co-workers, companies, and customers.

    However, the impact isn’t always positive. Workers today are using an average of four communications apps and checking these 10 times an hour—leading to 32 days of productivity wasted each year. The goal of the digital workplace should not be to just provide technical endpoints, but also human connections. This is the intention of Collaborative Communications and it is happening today.

    In this engaging presentation, learn how the vision for Collaborative Communications is made possible by RingCentral’s powerful capabilities to call, message, and meet—all delivered with an integrated experience.

    Join us for this webinar in which we’ll explain the current state of play for AI (spoiler alert: humans are not going anywhere for a while) and cloud technology and impart some useful ways you can prepare your business communications.

    Chris Peterson, SVP of Operations at RingCentral, will talk you through:
     
    - Key trends in cloud communications

    Jim Payne, Senior Product Marketing Manager, RingCentral and Paul Comaroto, Product Marketing Manager, RingCentral
    How we work has changed. Email and instant messaging aren’t sufficient to meet the demands of current business workflows. At the same time, customer-facing workers need to build stronger relationships and foster trust quickly and efficiently.

  • A Workforce Unleashed: Enabling the Connected Workspace Recorded: Dec 15 2015 29 mins
    Niel Levonius, Director of Product Marketing & Clark Goodman, Marketing Manager
    Technology can empower smarter, more efficient and productive team collaboration. But before jumping into a new product, companies must first look at how employees are collaborating both at work and home. Gartner predicts “by 2020, over 90% of enterprise voice calls in the digital workplace will originate from collaboration applications, up from 30% today.” An MIT study reveals that 36% of workers’ time is spent in inboxes -- which is a deterrent to teamwork. MIT also states that the quality of team communication defines the success of a team.

  • Integrated/Multi-Channel Contact Center: Improve Customer Satisfaction & More Recorded: Nov 18 2015 29 mins
    Niel Levonius, Director of Product Marketing; Chris Leon, Senior Manager of Product Marketing
    It’s no secret that the purpose of having people answering phones in a contact center is to help customers purchase your goods and services, and then keep them happy after the sale. However, achieving these goals is difficult for many companies because they rely on contact center technology leftover from an era when the voice phone call was king. Meanwhile, the consumer—and even the B2B customer—has moved to using multiple channels of communications: voice calls, email, online chat, SMS, and social media. In this webinar we will discuss the benefits and opportunities of an integrated and multi-channel cloud contact center for both customer and agent satisfaction.
  • Unified Communications and Collaboration Mash-Up: The Next Wave Recorded: Nov 17 2015 54 mins
    Art Schoeller, Analyst Forrester Research and Dave Nuss, SVP of IT at Cresa Commercial Real Estate Services
    Communications for business is moving to the cloud for easier tools for teams to meet, collaborate, and get their job done. However, the traditional “build it and they will come” approach to deploying Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C) drives less than optimal results because knowledge workers frequently grab a set of tools on their own, creating islands of knowledge and collaborative work.

    To respond to this challenge, organizations need integrated tools that help knowledge workers gain the full benefits of cloud solutions that enable teams to connect, communicate and collaborate using their favorite methods and devices, anytime, anywhere. In this webinar, we will discuss:

    •The current state of knowledge workers today
    •How UC&C is changing, especially by taking advantage of cloud deployment
    •Assessing your workforce’s needs, including remote offices, mobility, and collaboration with people outside your organization such as vendors and customers
    •Efficiencies gained by standardizing unified communications in the cloud
    •Key steps needed to evaluate and plan your transition to cloud based UC&C
  • A Workforce Awakens: The Dawn of the Connected Workspace Recorded: Nov 10 2015 29 mins
    Peter Pezaris, VP Application Engineer; Niel Levonius, Director of Product Marketing; Clark Goodman, Marketing Manager
    The discussion around collaboration is extremely hot. Gartner predicts “by 2020, over 90% of enterprise voice calls in the digital workplace will originate from collaboration applications, up from 30% today.” An MIT study reveals that 36% of workers’ time is spent in inboxes—which is a deterrent to teamwork. MIT also states that the quality of team communication defines the success of a team. In this webinar, learn how technology can empower smarter, more efficient and productive team collaboration.
  • Boost Productivity: Integrate Microsoft Office 365 & Business Communications Recorded: Nov 5 2015 32 mins
    Jim Payne, Product Marketing Manager, RingCentral
    The value of cloud applications such as Microsoft Office 365 is not just in the ability to simplify usage and management, but in integrating with other often-used cloud business applications, such as communication tools. The ability to manage and track all business communications in one place—calls, texts, faxes and voicemails—and to make and receive calls directly within Office 365, are both productivity advantages that integration can deliver. In this presentation we will discuss the benefits of an integrated Office 365 and business communication system for both IT and the end user.
  • RC delivers high-touch communications to a high-tech motorcycle manufacturer Recorded: Oct 22 2015 2 mins
    Aaron Cheatham, Director of Customer Experience, Zero Motorcycles
    Zero Motorcycles of Santa Cruz, California is the world’s top producer of electric motorcycles. Achieving a leading position with only 100 employees might seem surprising, until you realize that everyone at Zero is focused on channeling resources into production. “Given the choice between making better motorcycles or investing in phone systems, the vehicles win out,” says Director of Customer Experience Aaron Cheatham.

    This isn’t to say that communications aren’t critical to the success of the company. Cheatham says that Zero chose RingCentral’s phone system because it does everything Zero needs—and then some—without breaking the bank.

    Watch the video to learn how RingCentral helps Zero Motorcycles stay connected, service customers more effectively, and continue building their brand.
