Avaya Holdings AVYA and RingCentral RNG jointly announced the launch of the much-awaited Avaya Cloud Office on Mar 31. The two companies had been working on this product since last October as part of their partnership agreement.
The highly-anticipated UC-as-a-Service (UCaaS) is built on RingCentral’s open platform, which offers services including video conferencing, messaging, calling, file sharing and collaboration across any device or user location. Moreover, users can use this UCaaS tool, along with their other office tools, including Microsoft’s MSFT Office 365, Alphabet’s GOOGL Google G-Suite, and Salesforce CRM.
Avaya has partnered with five master agents to launch its cloud-based office tool, including ScanSource SCSC, Inc., Jenne, Synnex Corporation SNX, AVANT Communications and Telarus LLC. Additionally, the company has shortlisted more than 800 channel partners, which would sell the just-launched office tool.
