Unified Communications Week in Review: RingCentral, Panasonic, Sangoma & More
Happy Saturday! It was an exciting week in Unified Communications with Panasonic and Sangoma releasing new solutions. The UC awards train continued this week as well, with RingCentral gaining recognition, and the community also has some valuable insight to offer on partnerships. Now that it’s the weekend, let’s take a look back at these exciting last few days.
The week kicked off with news that the Panasonic Systems Communications Company of North America has released its new UC Pro Communications software. It was made to work with various Panasonic UC hardware and targets small and midsize businesses that need to connect as many as 250 users. The UC Pro software has several benefits, one example being that it makes it possible for businesses to add mobile devices to their networks. You can find all the details on this release and the software’s capabilities HERE.
On the same note, Sangoma Technologies has released its PBXact UCC. They’ve long boasted the capabilities of their PBXact UC suite of hardware and software for business. Its latest release builds upon the success of its on-site suite by addressing the needs of small and midsize businesses. They would like access to the communications features but also wish to gain the security and ease of setup that comes with cloud-based software. You can final all the information on this new release HERE.
RingCentral continued the trend of UC solutions receiving recognition when it was named a Leader in Gartner’s Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) category of Magic Quadrant study. The Magic Quadrant study focuses on two main points: completeness of vision and ability to achieve that vision. Companies are then ranked according to these two points, and placed in a grid of four squares. Being named as a Leader is a big deal, and will boost RingCentral’s credibility tremendously. For all the details on how they earned this ranking, go HERE.
Finally, TMC’s Maurice Nagle rounded out the week by providing insight into how partners can play a key role in sales success. Fusion’s dedicated Partner Support Team, Sales Engineers and Implementation Coordinators are there every step of the way to ensure each deployment results in happy, productive and prosperous end users. There are physical benefits to having a dedicated channel team, but it’s even better when partners receive education and certification in the complete product suite.
