(NYSE:RNG), a leading provider of cloud business communication and collaboration solutions, announced today that CRN ®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given RingCentral’s Partner Program a 5-Star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide.

The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
