Montreal, Canada & Belmont, CA — December 22, 2020—Stack8, a leading North American provider of unified communications (UC) solutions, today announced a new partnership with RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG), a leading provider of global enterprise cloud communications, video meetings, collaboration, and contact center solutions.
The partnership will enable Stack8 to offer RingCentral’s Unified Communications as-a-Service (UCaaS) platform to their large enterprise customers around the world. Additionally, Stack8 will provide RingCentral Office®—a Unified Communications platform that provides cloud-based team messaging, video meetings, and an international cloud phone system to all customers.
Organizations with operations across multiple countries increasingly require cloud-based business communications solutions enabling their people to work in any mode, on any device, anywhere. The partnership between RingCentral and Stack8 combines best-in-class UC management and professional services with the leading message, video and phone (MVP) capabilities of RingCentral Office. The partnership will also enable customers to easily expand across borders by quickly adding new deployments.
“This is yet another monumental step for us and our market,” said Steven Karachinsky, CEO of Stack8. “As a full-service solutions company, Stack8 is fully dedicated to making it easy for customers to use technology in their businesses, so they can deliver on their promises to their customers. Because RingCentral embodies the same values, the addition of their industry-leading offerings to our portfolio is a perfect fit.”
In addition, the newly formed relationship will expand the capabilities of Stack8’s SMACS Unified Communications Management Platform (UCMP)—a comprehensive tool that provides built-in business intelligence, out-of-the-box processes, and the ability to customize interfaces based on the customers’ process needs. In turn, Stack8’s UCMP aligns with RingCentral’s Open Platform approach to offer flexibility for partners and customers to create value-added services.
“The global knowledge-based workforce is rapidly evolving to a newly found hybrid modality. As such, organizations are gaining huge advantages from cloud-based platforms that enable communications and collaboration from anywhere,” said Sandra Krief, Vice President of Service Providers Americas, at RingCentral. “We believe that bringing the benefits of RingCentral’s platform to customers around the world requires close partnerships with great companies that can help deliver the benefits of Unified Communications. We look forward to partnering with Stack8 as they work with multinational customers, and to helping Stack8 expand into new markets.”
