RingCentral Online Provides Ideal Telecommunications Solution for a Growing Number of Independent Realtors
Advanced Features Give Leading Realtors Competitive Edge—Streamlining Communications and Improving Customer Service
National Association of Realtors Conference and Expo, November 10, 2006 – RingCentral today announced that a growing number of realtors, including independent realtors from Century 21 and Coldwell Banker have selected RingCentral Online for on demand telecommunications services. Combining a toll-free and/or local number with advanced call management, PBX, voicemail, Click-to-call and Internet fax, RingCentral enables realtors to effectively manage communications and project a professional image to customers, partners and prospects.
“Connecting with buyers and sellers is at the core of my business; but before RingCentral Online, I relied on voicemail for most communications. Now I am able to more effectively manage calls and connect with my most important clients at any time, from any location—all through one local number,” said Roger Flowers, realtor for Century 21. “RingCentral helps drive my business. Advanced features like the Click-to-call RingMe capability encourage prospective clients to make that first call and the ability to set up and mange audio property tours saves me valuable time.”
In this turbulent market, maintaining a competitive edge is critical for real estate professionals. With younger buyers and sellers entering the market, incorporating Internet technology helps realtors better connect with clients and remain competitive. According to a 2006 technology survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors, 56 percent of agents spent more than $1,000 each for technology in 2006 and 30 percent spent more than $2,000.
RingCentral is a critical technology component for realtors, enabling them to more effectively connect with buyers and sellers, generate sales leads, boost customer satisfaction and project a professional image. With RingCentral, realtors receive one phone number and an easy-to-use online account. Through the online account, realtors can configure their service, forwarding calls to multiple phones (e.g., office, home or mobile phone) and setting up greetings and recorded audio tours with property information. They can automatically screen, forward and place calls; take voicemails; allow customers to call directly from the Website; view a log of calls for sales leads; send and receive faxes; and receive message alerts. Currently, 25,000 customers use RingCentral’s comprehensive and affordable hosted phone system to unify landline, wireless, VoIP, fax and email communications.
Responding to the needs of real estate agents, RingCentral recently enhanced its service to include Fax on Demand, Call Logs and Click-to-call capabilities. Fax on Demand allows subscribers to fax from the convenience of their mobile devices—it also allows callers to easily fax documents, such as listings and forms, to themselves. Call Logs provide busy mobile professionals advanced sorting capabilities that allow them to filter according to date, call type and caller ID. RingCentral’s RingMe is an embedded click-to-call button that subscribers can put on their Web site or in an email signature. This service allows online visitors worldwide to initiate a toll-free call with a mouse click.
“Today’s realtors face an increasingly competitive market and need technology tools that save time, boost sales and increase customer satisfaction,” said Vlad Shmunis, CEO of RingCentral. “RingCentral Online unifies the most critical communication tools, enabling on-the-go professionals to drive their business forward. And advanced features like RingMe and Call Logs provide an inexpensive, easy-to-implement system to connect realtors with clients and prospects.”
RingCentral will be exhibiting at the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Conference, booth #1067 at the Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, Louisiana, November 10 – 13, 2006.
