Cloud communications platforms offer service-sector employers and employees more than a platform for communication. It turns out, they also drive significant business value by providing work-from-anywhere (and anytime) mobility that wasn’t available before, as revealed by RingCentral’s recent Customer Success Metrics Survey. The professional service industry was no exception to these significant benefits generated through employee efficiency and collaboration.
Top takeaways from the survey
The survey results from more than 148 of RingCentral’s professional and consumer services customers found that deploying our all-in-one messaging, video, and phone solution yields critical improvements both within the workforce as well as for customers. Some key benefits include improved ability to streamline workflows, increased efficiency of meetings, and increased access to resources, information, and other communication touchpoints.
“Our Professional Service customers confirmed the value of our open platform for enabling improved collaboration, workflows, and mobility,” said Matt Hassett, Director of Small Business Marketing at RingCentral. “The result: more productivity and improved customer satisfaction.”
Starting from the time of deployment, our customers reported measurable improvements in how they manage and use communications tools: reduced IT and hardware spending, fewer needless in-person meetings, improved mobility for remote workers, and other significant improvements to productivity. These benefits will not only serve them for the post-COVID recovery period but also help to prepare their organizations for the ongoing evolution to a hybrid workforce.
In their own words: Professional and consumer service leaders on RingCentral
Here’s what other business leaders have to say about life with RingCentral:
“Since we rolled out RingCentral, our revenue has more than doubled—it’s up 230%. We’ve reviewed all other factors to see what else might be responsible, and we’ve isolated RingCentral as the primary driver.”
Founder and CEO, Junk Chuckers
“By retiring our PBX systems, and consolidating phone and video conferencing tools with RingCentral, we’ve saved 30–40%.”
Director of Information Technology, Pinnacle Renewable Energy
While at the height of the healthcare crisis, around 70% of organizations believed that the single biggest concern for continued remote working was a drop in productivity. But thanks to RingCentral, our service industry customers told us they were 30% more productive, achieved nearly 100% mobility, and saw marked increases in customer satisfaction.
