These days, on-the-go business people constantly switch between their smartphones, tablets and laptops. Inevitably, documents and files are stored on different devices, the content is not accessible on every device, and the devices may not all be in the same place at the same time. Isn’t it frustrating when you can’t pull up that document because it’s on your home computer but you’re at the beach on your tablet?

At RingCentral, we’re all about the ability to access files and documents from anywhere, anytime, and on any device. That’s why we introduced RingCentral Connect as part of our new Cloud Touch platform. RingCentral Connect is built on standard APIs, enabling easy integration with as many cloud services as possible. Currently, RingCentral works with cloud storage services such as Box, Dropbox, and Google Docs — enabling you to store your information in the cloud and then access that information through RingCentral from any compatible device. That means you can make that call, find that document, and send that fax from whichever device you happen to have with you.

A great example of RingCentral Connect is the CloudFax feature, which allows you to fax documents from your laptop or any compatible cloud storage service. We are especially excited about the newly launched Google Drive because it allows you to keep all your documents synced to Google Docs — making your data available whenever and wherever you need access.

Finding new and innovative ways to integrate best-in-class services continues to be our priority. We are always looking at new ways to bring next-generation productivity tools to your fingertips with RingCentral Cloud Touch. Which services and integrations would you like to see on our roadmap? Please let us know.
