As successful as Jamestown is, it must compete with other firms for every deal worth closing. That means being able to collaborate, analyze, and make decisions quickly—even when some members of the decision-making team are on different continents. But thanks to their new cloud-based unified communications solution from RingCentral, Jamestown is well positioned to be the nimble, fast-moving company that closes the deal.
Now when they’re in the office—any Jamestown office in the world—employees can easily host or join a video call in any available conference room. “I was able to set up RingCentral Rooms identically in every conference room across the whole corporation,” says Dean.
Employees can walk into a meeting room, open the RingCentral app on their computer, and start the video call. “It makes for a much more meaningful meeting when you can all see each other, as opposed to a conference call where everyone in the room is just staring at the hockey puck on the table.
And when they’re not in the office, Jamestown’s staff can just as easily use any of their cloud communication tools—business phone, video conferencing, team messaging, file sharing—from the RingCentral app on their laptops and smartphones.
As Dean puts it: “Having the desktop app and all the collaboration tools on our phones, our computers, wherever we are in the world… that’s been amazing for our business.”
