We’re happy to share that RingCentral has won a 2017 Innovation Award from Aragon Research Inc., a leading technology research and advisory firm. This year RingCentral has received recognition from a number of  leading analyst firms, including Gartner Inc., Frost & Sullivan, Synergy Research, and IHS Markit. The addition of this latest Aragon Research Innovation Award further demonstrates our continued momentum in the market and is a great indicator that we’re meeting global customer needs with our powerful, flexible, and cost-effective cloud communications and collaboration solutions.

The Aragon Research Innovation Awards recognized 15 Innovation Award winners at its annual 2017 awards event held December 7. The Innovation Award distinguishes companies leading the charge for change in their markets—or creating entirely new categories—with technology that expands capabilities and opens up new markets. It was a pleasure to join Jim Lundy, Aragon’s dynamic founder and CEO, at the event and be recognized among the esteemed recipients of this year’s awards.

RingCentral’s commitment to innovation is about empowering distributed, mobile, and global workforces to communicate and collaborate effectively in today’s digital workplace. Our differentiated collaborative communications approach allows teams, customers, and partners to work the way they want by putting collaboration at the center and enabling open, intelligent workflows to create a seamless experience. This unified experience encompasses team messaging along with voice, video, online meetings, and more, and lets people communicate using any device—whenever, wherever, and however they want.

At RingCentral, we are committed to continuous innovation in support of our customers, and this recognition from Aragon Research is thanks to the collective efforts of our tremendous team. I want to give a huge shout out to them for their dedication to delivering world-class solutions that delight customers around the globe.
