Most of us, if we’re being truly honest, join a work conference call the minute it’s scheduled to start. Then, we inevitably encounter launch issues — maybe because we’re trying to join remotely via a mobile device or perhaps the plugin required for entry is too slow — causing frustration and delays for everyone on the call.
Shouldn’t joining a conference call be easier by now?
The next time you’ve got a few minutes to spare while waiting for one of your co-workers to join a conference call, spend a few minutes checking out RingCentral. This VoIP provider offers an affordable business phone system that provides users with basic functionality (making and receiving calls, caller ID), as well as more robust features (automated attendants, call diverting, texting, and, yes, easy audio and video conferencing) through their Internet connection.
In general, VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) telecommunication is a cost-effective solution for many businesses: Calls made over the internet cost significantly less than those made on landlines; plus, you don’t have to pay for installation or adding infrastructure for every new hire.
But RingCentral, in particular, offers even more value for your money because all functionality and features are included in the standard price: That means instead of paying per feature per user (which can really add up), you get phone, fax, text, online meeting and conferencing and more — all for one low monthly cost. In fact, many businesses that use RingCentral pay as low as $19.99 a month per user — click to get a quote for your business here.
Here are some of the many ways RingCentral’s service can save your company money and make it more efficient — without any add-on fees.
Mobile-enabled. With RingCentral, users can call, text, and fax from their business number on any mobile device. This is particularly efficient if your company has remote employees or employees who travel frequently; they can connect anytime, anywhere.
Unlimited video meetings with screen sharing. RingCentral offers powerful online meeting features including screen sharing, HD video, ability to connect anywhere, and team messaging all in one workspace. Never have your online meetings been so productive — and so punctual!
Integration with apps your business uses every day. RingCentral has some of the best integration capabilities in the industry, allowing users to connect to apps such as Gmail, Slack, Asana, Salesforce — and coming soon — even Alexa. Seamlessly incorporating your phone service into your larger business operations and eliminating the need to switch between programs to message, call, and meet, can significantly improve communication and collaboration between you and your customers.
Quality control. Bad audio or video quality can make or break a meeting — and if that meeting is with a client or customer, that can negatively impact your business. RingCentral’s new Quality of Service Analytics lets administrators view inprogress calls to help them manage and troubleshoot any quality issues before they become a bigger problem.
More powerful inbound call routing. Most VoIP providers offer automated attendant capabilities, including IVR (Interactive Voice Response) tools to route calls automatically. RingCentral’s IVR experience, however, is much more advanced, allowing businesses to create multiple-layer phone routing menus and provide a thoughtfully tailored customer experience.
