RingCentral and Mitel are both leading unified communication providers with robust cloud platforms which we have offered as separate solutions in the past. But in November 2021, Mitel and RingCentral announced a strategic partnership that will create a new frontier in unified communications.
In order to provide Mitel’s global customer base with a seamless migration path to the #1 cloud-based phone and video platform, Mitel has joined forces with RingCentral. This exciting new partnership enables MiCloud users to take advantage of RingCentral's base of third-party integrations, HD videoconferencing for up to 200 participants, omnichannel contact center solutions, and more – all while CNP's team of experts ensure a seamless migration process to the cloud.
Read on to learn more about this groundbreaking new partnership, how it can benefit your business, and five reasons you should migrate to the cloud with Mitel and RingCentral now.
A New Frontier in Unified Communications
You may be wondering why Mitel chose to partner with their top competitor, RingCentral, in the first place. For starters, RingCentral’s cloud platform is currently rated as the #1 UCaaS provider by Gartner and many others. They have a proven track record of being the #1 cloud provider for the better part of a decade!
Meanwhile, Mitel continues to lead in onsite and private cloud solutions. While it’s true that more businesses and applications are moving to the cloud, not all businesses are ready to take that step. For the businesses that still need an on-site solution, flexibility is key. Cloud communications may be on their horizon, and the partnership between Mitel and RingCentral provides a seamless path through that migration process when they’re ready. This is an excellent complement to Mitel’s leading UC on-premises, subscription, and private cloud solutions.
Ultimately, this partnership gives Mitel customers more choices, offering a comprehensive suite of cloud communication and collaboration services and providing for the full range of potential business communication needs at top level performance. You’re getting access to the very best solutions of the world’s top performing business communications vendors, all from one partnership.
So, Mitel and RingCentral have joined forces. How does that benefit your company?
