Starz Entertainment Taps RingCentral to MC Its Phone Communications Mixx


RingCentral's Business Phone Service Helps Arizona's Largest and Most Reputable DJ Service Effectively Connect Customers with Distributed Employees

San Mateo, CA, April 28, 2009 - Eric Godfrey is the owner and founder of Starz Entertainment, one of Arizona's largest and most reputable DJ Services for over 1,000 events a year. Starz does events including weddings, corporate parties, clubs, and many other events, and the company has built the business creating wonderful memories for its clients. His 27 person team strives for perfection and fun at every event. To efficiently manage phone communications with demanding clients and distributed and mobile staff, Godfrey found the perfect mix of innovative technology and high-touch customer service in RingCentral’s "cloud" -based business phone service. Godfrey implemented RingCentral to enable more effective communication between his employees and customers.

Godfrey needed a business phone service that ensured his staff was always available to his customers, whether working at an event or creating a great mix of music. He found RingCentral’s service online, self customized the service for his business and starting using it in less than an hour.

"Six months ago, to reduce overhead, we decided to close our physical office and make our company virtual," said Godfrey. "We researched our options and found RingCentral to offer a vast array of key service features at a very low cost and decided to give them a try. I can’t tell you how elated I have been with their service."

RingCentral provides more services than legacy office phone systems, at a fraction of the cost. Delivering the power of a sophisticated multi-extension phone system without expensive hardware to buy or maintain, RingCentral offers a complete, business phone and Internet fax service with no long-term contracts and zero setup costs. The service is instantly provisioned and activated within minutes.

Godfrey added, "With our old phone system, we could never have been able to close our physical office and run our business efficiently. With RingCentral, I pay a fraction of my old bill and I get much more services. In addition, there is absolute flexibility in setup and it is easy to operate. The capabilities and affordability of RingCentral help us run our business and deliver top notch customer service."
