I’ve been given the amazing opportunity to build out the new Strategic Industry Alliances group here at RingCentral and I couldn’t be more excited. This group’s mission is to identify key master relationships within vertical industries and provide exclusive value-based services to their respective memberships; creating a win-win value proposition that helps members move to the cloud and transform their businesses with the most modern communications and collaboration platform available.

I recently had the privilege of onboarding RE/MAX, one of the most recognizable global brands in the real estate and franchise industries, and working with them to designate RingCentral as an approved supplier for business communications. Under this agreement, RingCentral will provide dedicated RingCentral support and preferred pricing to RE/MAX Affiliates. Already in use by over 500 U.S. and Canada RE/MAX Affiliates, the RingCentral Office application has become the premier choice of leading brokers/owners.

Having working in the real estate franchising industry myself for 5 years, I know first-hand that IT hassles associated with legacy on-premises PBX systems are simply not something real estate brokers and owners have time for – realtors need to be in constant contact with clients. Without a cloud-based solution, there’s difficult set-up and administration, lack of mobility, and costly infrastructure and support. RingCentral solves these problems, giving the RE/MAX network powerful new ways to be more productive and enable their mobile workforce.

I’m excited to welcome RE/MAX to the RingCentral family and I look forward to building a highly-effective partnership with them to support their long-term success.
