Keeping up with work doesn’t just feel harder than ever. Thanks to our busier schedules, staying connected at work is harder.
Compared to before the pandemic, the average worker attends 250% more meetings in 2022. And that’s not really a surprise. With more colleagues going permanently remote—and fewer face-to-face encounters at the office—meetings are now vital to staying connected.
But today’s meetings are not all virtual. In our hybrid workplaces, meetings are often a mix of in-person and virtual. And meeting rooms not only provide a physical space for productive sessions, but also bridge the gaps for in-office and remote participants.
That’s why we’re excited to announce a new partnership with a leading global provider for touchscreen interactive displays, Avocor, as well as some additional exciting innovations in RingCentral Rooms.
The best meeting room experience is when software and hardware join together. That’s why we partner with leading companies around the world to offer complete solutions tailored to our customers’ needs.
Our newest partner, Avocor, makes RingCentral Rooms more equitable, inclusive, interactive, and user-friendly than ever before.
Avocor is a global leader in collaborative technology solutions, offering interactive touchscreen displays and collaborative solutions that make meeting participation intuitive and seamless. Together with RingCentral, it’s a powerful combination to introduce RingCentral Rooms for Touch, a new joint solution we’re bringing to market.
RingCentral Rooms for Touch is a new series of Avocor Collab Touch displays with RingCentral Rooms built-in. This offering of our Rooms experience allows for digital whiteboarding, on-screen annotation, and joining and ending meetings all with the touch of your finger.
Avocor’s Collab Touch displays are designed for the next generation of meetings. With an edge-to-edge display, Avocor UiQ—Avocor’s new Smart touch-enabled dynamic user interface—and utilizing Logitech’s Rally Bar, this solution is engineered to offer the best meeting experience.
Available today in beta for desktop, we’re thrilled to roll out our Whiteboard feature for Rooms later this summer. With RingCentral Rooms for Touch, meeting participants will soon be able to use all the great features of our whiteboarding capabilities to draw, upload files, and brainstorm ideas on an interactive touch display.
Avocor’s Collab Touch displays and RingCentral Rooms for Touch will be available soon.
Avocors CollabTouch Series Whiteboard will also be available for Avocor’s CollabTouch in early Fall.
We’re also bringing on more great hardware partners to keep making meetings better, whatever your preferred brand:
Deliver an even better small meeting room experience. With two integrated speakers and four microphones, the Expand Vision 5 video bar offers outstanding audio and video—and now it supports RingCentral Rooms.
With a range of AI-driven features and 180-degree Panoramic-4K views, Jabra’s PanaCast 50 delivers everything you need to optimize meetings for this new era—now including support for RingCentral Rooms.
These new partners join our existing list of video conferencing hardware partners—Logitech, Poly, and Yealink—giving you even more flexibility in choosing the best providers for your company’s needs.
Avocors CollabTouch Series be available for Avocor’s CollabTouch in early Fall.
