I’m proud to announce that RingCentral Glip has just earned a new industry accolade: Our team messaging and collaboration app secured a spot in the elite “Leader” category in the 2018 Aragon Research Globe for Mobile Collaboration report. Aragon Research is a tech-industry analyst and advisory firm that counts some of the world’s business and IT leaders among its clients, and the company defines the Leader category as its highest designation for a given industry.

So, why should you care that Glip earned an industry-leading slot in some big analyst firm’s report? Well, if you’re looking for a mobile app for team messaging and collaboration, you might want to know why Aragon Research identified Glip as a leader.

The Mobile Collaboration report cited the Glip app as an industry leader for its:

  • Mobile-first design
  • Wide range of third-party app integrations, such as Dropbox and Google Drive
  • Enterprise-grade voice and video capabilities
  • Ability to serve as a digital communications hub and increase workforce productivity
  • Best-in-class user experience
  • Unlimited flexibility and attractive price point: free!

Here’s how Aragon Research CEO Jim Lundy describes Glip in the report:

Team messaging-centric platforms are growing quickly in popularity as the preferred ‘home base’ for a single communications platform. RingCentral Glip solves this challenge by serving as a digital communications hub and increasing overall workforce productivity. From within RingCentral Glip, users can click-to-call with direct integrations with RingCentral Office, click to start a video meeting with RingCentral Meetings, as well as enable contact center agents to better communicate with each other and experts throughout the organization through integrations with RingCentral’s Collaborative Contact Center solution.

Cool, huh?

Sure, compliments are nice, and it feels good to be called an industry leader by a respected firm like Aragon Research. But the real value in Glip’s leader designation is that it means the app we’re working on every day for you and your team is delivering on its promise — to give you a single digital workspace to communicate, collaborate, and get your work done.

Go team go! And happy Glipping!
