Del Monte Foods Streamlines Business Communications Worldwide with RingCentral
RingCentral's cloud solution aligns with Del Monte’s “cloud first and cloud only” IT strategy and provides ease of administration, mobility, and ability to centrally manage communications
BELMONT, Calif.—February 3, 2016 - RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE:RNG), a leading provider of cloud communications and collaboration solutions, today announced that Del Monte Foods, Inc., one of the leading purveyors of premium quality, branded food products in the United States, has selected the RingCentral Office solution to replace its legacy on-premises system and consolidate its communications in the cloud.
The selection has enabled Del Monte to centralise its administration and provide mobility, initially to 200 employees in the U.S. and the Philippines. The footprint is expected to expand with the potential to reach 1,400 employees in the months ahead.
RingCentral has brought significant cost-efficiency to the 130-year-old company, headquartered in Walnut Creek, California, which has been an early adopter of moving its operations into the cloud for greater business agility and the ability to scale more efficiently. The RingCentral implementation has been rolled out first in key areas such as research facilities, satellite sales offices and various departments where communications has been challenging.
“Our IT strategy is to go full cloud and never buy a server again,” said Chad Anderson, director of information technology, Del Monte Foods. “RingCentral fits perfectly into our IT strategy. We’ve experienced the true benefits of transitioning our legacy on-premises VoIP system to the cloud with lower costs, mobility, easy maintenance, and speed of implementation.”
As a mobile-centric business communications solution, RingCentral enables Del Monte's team members to easily stay connected while travelling. Its workforce is no longer tethered to a desk phone and can work in any location, on any device in real-time.
“Del Monte's adoption of a total cloud strategy dovetails perfectly with the kind of solution RingCentral offers its customers,” said Ryan Azus, Senior Vice President of Global Sales for RingCentral. “They are leading the way for other companies to follow suit. Speed of deployment, consistency of services, and simple set-up and administration are hallmarks for any company to be competitive in today's dynamic marketplace.”
