News : World Vision Replaces Legacy On-Premise Communications Systems with RingCentral
Belmont, CA, USA, September, 2016 -- RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG), a provider of enterprise cloud communication and collaboration solutions, announced that World Vision, a Christian charitable relief organizations centered on solving child poverty and injustice, has selected RingCentral Office(R) to overhaul its legacy business communications infrastructure in the United States.
With a focus on optimization, World Vision wanted a flexible and easy to use cloud solution to empower employees to communicate nationwide in any way, anywhere, and on any device. This includes voice, video, conferencing, SMS, and online meetings from a single unified solution.
"We were looking for a cloud unified communications solution to replace nine disparate, end-of-life PBX systems, which were both difficult and expensive to manage, and only provided limited communications capabilities," said Randy Boyd, infrastructure architect at World Vision U.S., who led the initiative. "RingCentral’s platform provides us with the modern communications features that we need to support our central, dispersed and mobile workforce. Upon deploying RingCentral’s solution over the last few months, we have already heard very positive feedback from employees on the flexibility, quality and richness of the communications capabilities, and we anticipate significant cost savings in the near future, which will result in more money going to children in need."
The large-scale deployment of RingCentral Office was completed with the assistance of the RingCentral Professional Services™ team, who provided technical design, deployment, network consulting, integration, and monitoring services. World Vision attributes the successful and timely rollout of the new cloud communications solution to the close engagement and partnership of the RingCentral team.
The next phase of World Vision’s deployment is to leverage RingCentral’s next generation software-based cloud video conferencing system, called RingCentral Rooms™, across its conference rooms, replacing yet another end-of-life, legacy system.
"World Vision's IT team is highly dedicated to providing quality services to its workforce," said Ryan Azus, senior vice president of worldwide sales at RingCentral. "By moving their communication infrastructure to the cloud, they can focus on their core mission, which is to serve children in need throughout the world. We’re excited to help World Vision modernize their communications solutions by replacing their legacy on-premise systems, and tapping the power of RingCentral’s cloud to enable them to work flexibly and communicate more effectively."
