RE/MAX Selects RingCentral as Approved Supplier for Business Communications
#1 Name in Real Estate Recognizes Innovation and Ease of Deployment of Cloud Communications Solution
BELMONT, Calif.—July 28, 2016 – RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE:RNG), a leading provider of enterprise cloud communications and collaboration applications, today announced that RE/MAX, the #1 name in real estate, has designated RingCentral as an approved supplier for business communications. Under this agreement, RingCentral will provide dedicated RingCentral support and preferred pricing to RE/MAX Affiliates. Already in use by over 500 U.S. and Canada RE/MAX Affiliates, the RingCentral Office® application has become the premier choice of leading brokers/owners who appreciate the mobility, flexibility, and richness of an innovative solution to provide world-class service to their customers.
“With more than 100,000 agents worldwide, it’s essential to offer our Affiliates the flexibility and simplicity to take their calls and communicate effectively whether using personal smartphones or desk phones in the office,” said Mike Ryan, executive vice president, RE/MAX, LLC. “IT hassles associated with legacy on-premises PBX systems are simply not something our professionals have time for. The most productive Realtors® thrive by being in constant contact with their clients. RingCentral has created a buzz with our agents and offices who are rapidly embracing one of the industry’s most innovative communication platforms.”
RingCentral enables RE/MAX office staff to easily stay connected with clients via voice, video, conferencing, fax and SMS within one unified communications and collaboration solution. Realtors can also use team messaging to efficiently communicate and manage multiple facets of real estate transactions with customers. In addition, RingCentral’s cloud solution can be quickly deployed across multiple locations, and can be managed from a mobile device.
According to Matt van Winkle, founder and CEO of RE/MAX On the Lake and RE/MAX Northwest Realtors, one of the largest real estate brokerages in Washington, “RingCentral Office has become an integral part of maintaining office efficiency and promoting our tech-forward values. RingCentral gives our agents maximum mobility so they can stay connected with customers and other staff, and have the flexibility to access faxes, office voicemails, and SMS using their business phone number.”
RingCentral Office is a complete cloud business communications and collaboration solution that’s designed for today’s mobile and dispersed workforces. Eliminating the limitations and hassle of complex on-premises phone systems, RingCentral Office is simple to activate and manage, and can scale easily as a company expands to more locations. For businesses that want to integrate their cloud communications solution with other business applications in their environment, RingCentral also offers a comprehensive set of APIs that enable custom integrations and enhanced workflows.
“We’re proud to be selected as an approved supplier for the RE/MAX network,” said Steve Rawson, head of strategic industry alliances for RingCentral. “Without a cloud-based solution, there’s difficult set-up and administration, lack of mobility, and costly infrastructure and support. RingCentral solves these problems, giving RE/MAX Affiliates powerful new ways to be more productive and successful.”
The RingCentral approved supplier agreement discount is currently available to RE/MAX Affiliates in the U.S. and Western Canada. RE/MAX franchisees can contact the dedicated RingCentral Franchise Sales Team by calling (800) 378-8110, or [email protected].
