CIO WaterCooler Transforms the Digital Boardroom with RingCentral’s Cloud Communications Platform

RingCentral enables CIOs and IT leaders to connect, collaborate and interact while on-the-go from anywhere in the world

London, UK - January 15, 2020 – RingCentral UK Ltd., a leading provider of global enterprise cloud communications, collaboration, and contact center solutions and a wholly owned subsidiary of RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG), today announced that CIO WaterCooler, a digital networking forum for CIOs and tech leaders, is using RingCentral’s cloud communications platform to power their Digital Boardrooms and enable virtual engagement and collaboration in the CIO tech community.

CIO WaterCooler provides a digital networking space for CIOs and leading technologists to come together and share ideas through interactive, virtual video sessions. Since IT leaders are always on-the-go and travel year round, they rely on Digital Boardrooms to connect with others in the community and share ideas at any given time, from any location. Previously, CIO WaterCooler had been using another communications platform to support these interactions, which they found unreliable and lacking key functionality. They ultimately selected RingCentral’s robust cloud communications platform which includes voice, video, and team messaging capabilities to support their important conversations.

“It’s been a real challenge to find the right platform for our Digital Boardrooms,” said Daniel Warburton, co-founder of CIO WaterCooler. “CIOs and tech leaders have an expectation of excellence, so we're delighted that RingCentral helped us achieve this standard and allow this community to connect and engage with one another, regardless of their physical location.”

RingCentral’s unified communications as a service (UCaaS) solution provides a single cloud platform with multimodal communications capabilities including voice, video, online meetings, and team messaging. As the market-leading UCaaS provider, RingCentral is helping CIO WaterCooler deliver valuable, reliable and enjoyable engagement within the CIO tech community.

“Tech leaders are constantly travelling and rely on digital platforms, including CIO WaterCooler’s Digital Boardrooms, to regularly engage and connect with their colleagues and peers when they are unable to attend events in person,” said Sahil Rekhi, managing director of RingCentral EMEA. “Through our world-class UCaaS solution, RingCentral is empowering the CIO community to share challenges, deliver change and progress their organizations through vital engagement and collaboration from anywhere in the world, even while on-the-go.”

Digital Boardrooms are led by prominent technology leaders and commentators globally, and take place twice a month. To review upcoming Digital Boardrooms, visit https://ciowatercooler.co.uk/digital-boardrooms/.
