What more can you do with the best meeting app?
We’ve designed a video conferencing service with the aim of making the best meetings app, one that helps you and your teams to collaborate every day as easily as possible. Here are just a few of the additional features that make RingCentral the best cloud-based video conferencing app.
RingCentral has task management features built in. These allow you to create a new task, assign it to a colleague and monitor progress, making it the best meeting app for line managers and collaborative teams.
Users of free version options such as Zoom, Cisco Webex or Skype often incur time limits or caps on their usage hours for their video meetings, whereas RingCentral’s free plan allows for unlimited meetings whereby colleagues can connect for as long as they want. What’s more, keeping a record of your group video meetings couldn’t be easier with a paid plan. Whether you’re delivering a training session or a planning meeting to delegate tasks to your team, call recording comes in handy. Rather than sending lengthy minutes and meeting follow-up notes, you can send the actual recording of your call so your attendees can dip in on demand. This is also an efficient way to update anyone who missed your meeting.
RingCentral’s screen-sharing feature is designed to help you and your teams to collaborate in real-time. You can quickly create an interactive meeting using the annotate feature, allowing you and your colleagues to work together to edit, amend and review documents and whiteboards live on a video call or webinar.
We’ve designed RingCentral to be an open platform meaning you can customise your own application integrations as well as choosing from hundreds of off-the-shelf integrations with key enterprise applications such as Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, Salesforce, Zendesk and group chat apps such as Slack (to name a few). Fundamentally, RingCentral will sync with Google Workspace, Google Calendar and Gmail or Microsoft 365 Outlook calendars to make sure you never miss a meeting. See more apps
