San Mateo, California (PRESS RELEASE – July 20, 2009) -RingCentral today introduced RingCentral Office, the industry’s first complete, cloud computing based business phone system with one low, flat, fixed monthly fee, no contracts and zero setup costs. RingCentral Office combines a hosted multi-extension business phone system with advanced voice and fax functionality, always-on service, unlimited calling and full-featured phones that arrive pre-configured and ready for use. Small businesses can begin using the RingCentral Office phone system within minutes with the click of a mouse at http://www.ringcentral.com.
Traditional business phone systems cost thousands of dollars to set up and maintain. By eliminating the need for complex hardware, lengthy installation and technical expertise, small businesses get the functionality and flexibility to easily connect with customers at a fraction of the cost of a traditional PBX phone system. RingCentral Office includes four key components:
Complete hosted phone and fax system- multiple extensions, multiple voice mail boxes, call management and call routing for real-time call control, internet fax and more
Unlimited long distance and toll-free service – anywhere within the US and Canada
Pre-configured phones – Linksys IP phones delivered ready-to-dial
Simple pricing model – all-inclusive, low, simple, flat and fixed monthly bill
RingCentral is the industry’s first provider to deliver an online, self-service solution to buy, provision and set up an instantly activated business telecommunications system. Small businesses can now utilize a world class business phone system that for many, until now, was unaffordable due to buying complexity and dealing with multiple vendors.
“The fact that RingCentral offers a unique self-service capability with an all inclusive pricing model and no contracts is, frankly, quite revolutionary in the business phone systems market,” said David Lemelin, senior analyst at market research firm In-Stat. “In addition, this system delivers more business class telecommunication services and functions than many office phone systems designed for small businesses, yet remains affordable. With small businesses cutting costs due to the economic downturn, RingCentral Office is an attractive phone service, particularly due to its low and predictable monthly fixed cost.”
“RingCentral Office gives us everything we need for our office phone system and saves thousands of dollars over a traditional phone system. More importantly, we now have a more efficient solution for managing one of the most critical part of our business-client and staff communications,” said Chris Coard, manager of Buyers Capital Stamford, a full service real estate company. “With RingCentral, we can easily connect our multiple offices under one complete phone system and seamlessly integrate with agents working from home or on the road.”
