RingCentral Goes Nationwide With Local Telephone Number Availability
US Wide Coverage Helps Small Businesses Establish Local Presence
Backed by an Enterprise-Class Phone Service
Redwood City, Calif., July 29, 2008 – RingCentral, an award-winning hosted business phone service, announced today nationwide availability for local telephone number across the U.S. Local number availability is a key requirement for businesses looking to establish a regional presence and boost customer loyalty. RingCentral automatically ties a company's multiple nationwide local numbers into a single enterprise class hosted business service to efficiently link all its customers to its employees.
"As an IT consulting firm focused on small businesses, our clients need to know that we are part of the community. A local phone number is our storefront – it reinforces our commitment to the market and helps build trust with our customers," says Joseph Turley, CEO of EvolutionMS, an IT consulting group based in Salt Lake City, Utah. "Our RingCentral number is backed up by a phone system you would expect to find at a Fortune 500 company--helping us control communications and project a professional image."
Small businesses across the US are increasingly adopting local numbers to power business communications. Local numbers enable companies to build a regional brand while removing cost barriers for connecting with customers, prospects and local partners. Even businesses with a national presence, or offices scattered across the US, can take advantage of local numbers to build customer loyalty in top markets or reduce costs of communication between offices. Businesses seeking to enter a new market can establish a local presence in minutes, without setting up a physical office. "I am expanding business in both Boston, Massachusetts and Santa Cruz, California. Having a RingCentral number for each region gives me the local presence I need to connect with customers and run my business smoothly and economically," said Jenevieve Brackett, owner of Business Made Better, a services firm for small businesses.
RingCentral local numbers power business communications in almost every major metropolitan area and small town across the continental US—from Manhattan, Miami, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Chicago and Houston, to Buffalo, Columbus, Colorado Springs and San Antonio.
"We've seen the number of businesses selecting local area numbers double in the past year and expect this trend will continue," said Vlad Shmunis, CEO of RingCentral. "Combining RingCentral's comprehensive business phone service with trusted local presence gives savvy small businesses a competitive advantage in their top markets. Now that we've ratcheted our area code coverage to this level, the sky is the limit for small business to take advantage of business opportunities nationwide."
