RingCentral earned the Strategy Innovation Award at the San Francisco Chief Strategy Officer Summit recently for having the most Disruptive Strategy. RingCentral was recognized for pioneering the strategic initiative “Mobile First”.
The Strategy Innovation Awards recognizes companies for their success in pioneering strategy initiatives that have had a positive impact within the strategy community.
As part of the judging process, RingCentral submitted a list of core motivators that inspire the company strategy:
“We’re happy to be recognized for predicting and taking advantage of the changing mobile environment and implementing a radical “Mobile First” strategy back in 2008. We were the only company in the business communications market to start with a “Mobile First” approach and now we are leading the way,” said Praful Shah, Senior Vice President of Strategy at RingCentral.
RingCentral was one of a handful of companies awarded for their achievements along with Zipcar, Bishop-Lyons Entertainment, iPipeline, and Hudson Bay Company.
“This award is particularly meaningful because we were recognized by professionals who work in business strategy,” said Shah. “The panel recognized the core value of RingCentral—that businesses need a solution for today’s mobile and distributed workforce that will eliminate the limits of legacy phone systems and allow businesses to scale quickly, integrate with other cloud solutions, remain cost-effective and run their businesses more efficiently.”
We are very proud of our accomplishment and will continue to be leaders in strategy and innovation.
