Legal technology business drives global growth with cloud communications solutions
LONDON, England — October 30, 2018 — RingCentral UK, Ltd., a leading provider of enterprise cloud communications and collaboration solutions and a wholly owned subsidiary of RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE:RNG), today announced that Opus 2, a global legal technology business, has selected RingCentral Rooms™ video conferencing solution to build its virtual courtroom offering and help manage cases worldwide. By removing the need to bring witnesses to court in-person, legal firms can drive productivity, reduce costs, and manage sensitivities around court attendance.
RingCentral Rooms is a next-generation, cloud-based video conferencing room solution, delivering HD video, audio, and web conferencing capabilities. RingCentral Rooms uses a web conferencing platform to connect meeting room hardware, such as screens, cameras, and speakers, with external and internal users, as well as with other conference rooms. This enables seamless participation with other participants joining from mobile phones, tablets, and desktops. The solution allows witnesses to make court appearances without attending in person. The easy-to-deploy solution also removes the need for expensive proprietary hardware, which is typical of traditional video conference room systems.
“A virtual courtroom is no longer a vision of the future. We’re working with legal teams around the world to deliver this environment on a daily basis,” explained Dervis Kemal, Head of IT at Opus 2. “We tested a number of video conferencing solutions, but only RingCentral’s technology could stand up to the issue of low bandwidth which exists in many traditional courtrooms today.”
Opus 2 Magnum is a state-of-the-art case management and trial presentation platform which enables legal teams to work collaboratively on document sets regardless of their physical location. All case documents and work products remain in one secure, central workspace, helping to deliver significant efficiencies and cost savings throughout the legal process. Designed for lawyers, Magnum’s intuitive interface has been developed to mimic how legal teams have traditionally worked with paper, making it easy to use and popular with legal professionals of all levels, from associates through to judges.
The decision to partner with RingCentral is part of a wider move by Opus 2 to expand globally, improving collaboration across offices and multiple countries worldwide. The company has already implemented RingCentral Office® to bring together a disparate workforce across five countries. The company has several remote workers who travel extensively, making effective communication and collaboration vital.
RingCentral Office mobile capability is an entirely reimagined collaboration-centric experience for enterprise communications. It provides a modern conversational workspace, allowing people to work the way they want, while driving increased productivity and business workflow efficiency. Eliminating the need for multiple, disparate apps, the new mobile app combines RingCentral phone, team messaging, video meetings, and other key features into a single experience, delivering on the company’s Collaborative Communications vision.
“Opus 2 is a fast-growing, global company which has strong ambitions for the future,” said Sahil Rekhi, Managing Director of EMEA at RingCentral. “The company is taking a huge leap forward by adopting the latest technology for global growth in an industry that is traditionally known for its lack of innovation. We’re excited to support their business and look forward to future partnerships.”
