OTTAWA, Ontario & BELMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TELUS (NYSE: TU), a world-leading communications and information technology company and RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG), a leading provider of global enterprise cloud communications, video meetings, collaboration, and contact center solutions, today announced an expansion of their partnership to serve broader sizes of businesses. They will work together to now enable Canadian small businesses to easily transition their legacy phone systems to the cloud via TELUS Business Connect, an all-in-one communications solution for message, video, and phone. Offered as part of TELUS Business Connect, the new Business Connect Voice and Business Connect Voice Plus plans are built for small businesses who want to replace their basic legacy services with a cost-effective, trusted business solution and richer functionality that enables remote work and easy online management.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and we want to provide them with solutions that enable them to run their business smoothly so they can focus on what matters most, and not worry about the technology,” said Marshall Berkin, vice-president of Business Products and Services at TELUS. “Through our partnership with RingCentral, small businesses can now manage their phone systems remotely, whether that’s from their in-store phone to a mobile phone or manage call routing from wherever they are, unlike traditional phone lines.”
The Business Connect Voice Plus plan enables businesses to keep lines of communication open at all times, with mobile and desktop apps, easy-to-configure call routing, voicemail-to-email capabilities, and online fax. For small businesses planning to adopt a Unified Communications as a service (UCaaS) solution in the near future, TELUS Business Connect Business Voice and Business Voice Plus provide a simple and easy first step to deploying a complete cloud communications infrastructure with messaging, video and phone capabilities.
