BELMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- RingCentral, Inc.

The Computer History Museum is a nonprofit organization with a four-decade history as the world’s leading institution exploring the history of computing and its ongoing impact on society. Over the last several years, the museum started to digitally transform the institution in order to extend its reach to various audiences virtually across the globe. Once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the museum accelerated these initiatives by transitioning to an all-digital format, offering digital tours and video content across its various channels. With RingCentral, the museum will be able to accelerate these initiatives by enabling employees and partners to communicate from any location, on any device, across any mode - all from a single application, while leveraging the technology to cater to global audiences virtually.
“Computing has long contributed to many technologies that enhance human capabilities and has had an immense impact on the way we operate as a society,” said Dave Evans, chief information officer and vice president of technology, Computer History Museum. “Our mission at the Computer History Museum is to communicate digitally with audiences all over the world, which is now essential for business continuity given the current climate. RingCentral’s state-of-the-art cloud technology will enable us to modernize our communications infrastructure and reach our goal of transforming into a 21st century museum for the new digital age.”
Recognizing the robust capabilities of RingCentral, the museum will use RingCentral’s cloud platform to communicate and collaborate with visitors, partners, and employees. RingCentral enables greater mobility, flexibility, and delivers message, video, and phone capabilities, all from one unified solution in the cloud.
