IFA 2016As the International Franchise Association conference (IFA) kicks off mere days away, it’s essential to talk about how franchise businesses benefit from a cloud communications system like RingCentral.

Franchisees face challenges of unifying multiple locations, maximizing efficiency while keeping costs down, and providing an excellent customer experience. The question is how much do you stand to lose from not using a cloud phone system that solves these problems and what can you gain from using RingCentral? Marc Thomas, OrangeTheory Fitness franchisee says, “It’s the most effective option. Implementation is easier, and it’s going to save money over time.”

Using RingCentral’s cloud-based, robust feature offerings your phone system easily adapts to your needs and grows alongside your business. The location and device independence offered through RingCentral makes managing a multi-location franchise practical and efficient.  You can better improve the customer experience by using all-inclusive features such as a multi-level menu to get customers to whom they want to speak with quicker. Or, use phone, fax, or text to communicate with them in the way that suits your customers and your business.

Franchises choose RingCentral as their communication solution due to the quality of service, ease of use, and the simple, customized implementation. RingCentral is dedicated to enhancing the customer experience and our franchise partners benefit from added support and savings. Franchises can save up to 60% on all locations with preferred franchise pricing and also are allocated a dedicated implementation team and support.

Extend the power of RingCentral with franchise-friendly enhancements and integrations such as Zoho CRM, Google for Work, Microsoft 365, PC Recruiter and Connectivity. Coming soon for health and fitness business, is the integration with MINDBODY.  Connectivity will be at IFA alongside RingCentral; Connectivity can turn your RingCentral call logs into customer lists! It provides you with who is calling, demographic information, insight as to how your customers are interacting with you, and much more. It’s a powerful marketing tool.

RingCentral will be at the 2016 IFA Convention in San Antonio, Texas, February 20-23rd. We invite you to check out our booth #270/272, to learn more about our franchise solutions and offerings.
