Under the direction of Samuel Eakin, Operations Manager, Hawk Ridge moved its enterprise communications to the cloud. After deploying RingCentral for telephony and web conferencing, Eakin went looking for a team messaging and collaboration solution that he could deploy company-wide.
Some in the organization were already using a free version of one collaboration application, forcing the IT team to decide whether they wanted to buy the paid version of that application to deploy it more broadly. Eakin saw several drawbacks to this approach. One was the
cost. Another was the fact that the application was not well integrated with the company’s voice and web conferencing applications.
A better option came when Eakin learned about RingCentral Glip. Glip had the advantage of being integrated with RingCentral’s other functionality. Adding Glip to the RingCentral installation would give Hawk Ridge fully integrated voice, messaging, team collaboration, and web conferencing. And Glip comes free with RingCentral Office, which eliminated the cost concern.
