RingCentral Reseller Channel Partners Achieve Rapid Success


Over 500 partners sign up in six months with RingCentral to provide reliable and affordable cloud-based business phone systems to SMB market

San Mateo, CA, April 21, 2011 - RingCentral, the leader in cloud based business phone systems, announced today the rapid growth of its channel reseller program since its inception in September 2010. In six months, over 500 channel partners, including IT consultants, telecom sales agents, managed service providers (MSPs) and value-added reseller (VARs), have partnered with RingCentral to provide RingCentral’s proven cloud-based phone system solutions to SMBs looking for scalable business communication systems. 

RingCentral partners are enthusiastically joining one of the fastest growing channel programs for resellers. RingCentral enables partners to instantly deliver business communication systems that are designed for the modern mobile and distributed employee workforce at a fraction of the cost of traditional phone systems. 

“Our approach to the channel program is to ensure that our partners are able to achieve success rapidly,” said Vlad Shmunis, CEO of RingCentral. “With our industry leading cloud based solution, partners are excited that they can setup and completely activate a business phone system for their clients within an hour. This is a large contrast to legacy on-premise hardware PBX boxes that are very expensive, have long sales cycles, takes weeks to deploy and do not provide the opportunity for partners to earn residual income quickly.” 

  • Instant online order and activation
  • Upfront commissions and long term monthly residual income
  • Additional revenue opportunities for set-up, configuration and on-going system management

“Our affiliation with RingCentral has opened an exciting and very profitable new business expansion opportunity for our network of more than 2,750 independent retailers,” said Randy Anderson, CEO of RS&I, the nation’s largest, multiple-line distributor of Authorized Dealership Programs. “Substantially reduced costs are only one of the many advantages of RingCentral’s cloud-based phone system over the traditional, Legacy PBX alternative. Those advantages have quickly elevated RingCentral to one of the most popular new business communications opportunities we offer.”
