“Our continued growth and expansion of RingCentral’s Global Connect Network has been driven by the increasing demand from multinational businesses moving their enterprise communications and collaboration solutions to the cloud,” said Ritu Mukherjee, associate vice president of Global Office at RingCentral. “For enterprise IT teams, globally deploying and managing multiple legacy on-premise systems is very complex and extremely expensive. Additionally, only a new generation of globally available cloud communications solutions like RingCentral can address the needs of today’s global and distributed workforce to work productively.”
