RingCentral Named to Inaugural CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide

Editors Identify Cloud Providers, Technology Vendors With Robust Cloud Programs for the IT Channel

San Mateo, Calif., October 6, 2014 – RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG), a leading provider of cloud business phone systems, announced today that it has been named to the inaugural CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide, a list of the leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs designed to benefit members of the indirect IT channel and their cloud initiatives. This guide offers solution providers a valuable resource for locating and exploring the IT industry’s top cloud technologies, programs and offerings, and a way to connect with the organizations making these cloud technologies and partner programs available specifically through the IT channel.

“Cloud computing is a game-changing technology, and it’s imperative that the IT channel be able to quickly identify those organizations most deeply committed to helping solution providers grow their cloud-related revenue,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “Each cloud provider and vendor noted by the CRN editors has been chosen based on its robust cloud partner program, as well as the unique and enthusiastic ways in which it has embraced the channel as a go-to-market strategy.”

The RingCentral Reseller Program was created to expand reach to customers via channel partners.  The company saw a need from the market to build a channel that could become a local resource for RingCentral customers and provide value-added implementation and technical support.

“We are honored to be recognized by The Channel Company for our RingCentral Reseller Program,” said Ryan Azus, Senior VP of Worldwide Sales at RingCentral. “This praise is a reflection of the dedication the company has to our channel partners.”

The Cloud Partner Program Guide will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com.  By combining tools like the new Cloud Partner Program Guide with conferences like The Channel Company’s upcoming NexGen Cloud Conference & Expo, solution providers will have access to the most relevant and up-to-date information available to advance their cloud strategies and solutions.
