Supporting Global Workforces

RingCentral has expanded the footprint of its RingCentral Global Connect Network in Latin America to support growing demand from enterprise customers.

Multinational businesses with offices in Peru, Brazil, and Argentina can now enjoy the benefits of localised presence integrated as part of a global enterprise communications solution.

RingCentral also announced the expansion of its presence in France, with the following new leadership and product capabilities:

  • Appointed Guillaume Widmer as head of channels for France. Mr. Widmer is an industry executive with over 20 years of experience in communications technologies and former CTO of Netcentrex Inc, a pioneer in the provisioning of voice and video services
  • Addition of local channel partners to address the needs of the growing market opportunity in France
  • RingCentral Office language support in French, local billing in euros, direct peering with tier-one local operators across the region, and applications delivery from European data centres

Global Quality of Service Analytics

In the world of legacy on-premises voice communications systems, it was impossible to centrally deploy and manage global enterprise PBX systems, as well as troubleshoot service quality issues.

With RingCentral Global Office, enterprises can deploy, administer, and manage the solution centrally on a global basis.

In addition, RingCentral is now providing real-time analytics capabilities that:

  • Measure quality of every leg of every call on a global basis, enabling administrators to have visibility into end-user quality of service experiences
  • Provide a comprehensive reporting dashboard that allows administrators to anticipate and diagnose voice quality or service issues in real time before they escalate into critical problems
  • Pinpoint problematic calls to accurately identify patterns, degradation at the country, regional, and local levels for every leg of every call. This is based on transport information, such as jitter, latency, and packet loss

With Quality of Service Analytics, RingCentral aims to empower administrators with deeper insights into the end-user experience and faster issue resolution. This new capability is now available to RingCentral Office customers.
