RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG), a leading provider of global enterprise cloud communications, video meetings, collaboration, and contact center solutions, today announced its new Device as a Service (DaaS) offering which allows businesses to easily procure and deploy phone, video, rooms, and contact center hardware from leading providers – including Logitech, Poly, Jabra, and Yealink. At a low upfront cost with streamlined procurement from a single vendor, predictable recurring pricing, simpler device management, and software upgrades – DaaS makes it easy for customers to complement their RingCentral MVP, Rooms, or Contact Center solutions with the right hardware options.

With hybrid work becoming a focus for many organizations, RingCentral enables organizations to more easily transform their office spaces into dynamically enabled video environments. DaaS extends RingCentral Video and Rooms offerings, and allows customers to have the same great video experience in a conference room that they already have in a home office or on the go. With DaaS, meeting room participants will now have access to the latest hardware–allowing them to connect faster and collaborate more efficiently wherever they choose to work.

“With access to hardware options from leading partners, RingCentral customers can ensure they are offering the best communications experiences for all employees across their organization,” said Michael Helmbrecht, vice president of video product management at RingCentral. “The technology needed to power the hybrid workplace, whether people are at home or in the office, is rapidly changing. In an environment where employee interaction has shifted dramatically, having access to the latest hardware and software quickly and inexpensively is important. Thanks to collaboration and partnership with some of the industry’s most trusted hardware partners, we can help our customers deploy proper hybrid work solutions ensuring employees feel seen and heard no matter where they work.”
