Yet recognized that its ad hoc network arrangement wasn’t ideal. A few years ago, Ari noted, the company began investigating third-party hosted services – and that search took it directly to RingCentral.

“RingCentral was great for us,” Ari said. “We could configure it through a web browser, and it didn’t matter where people were working. We could customize the whole system as needed.”

“You hire a new person, the phone shows up and they’re up and running,” Ari indicated.

“For us everything is scalable,” he continued. “That includes our phone system with RingCentral – it fits into our strategic goals perfectly.”
