RingCentral Introduces Next-Gen Communication Solution for Frontline Workers

Stack8 Partners With RingCentral to Bring Unified Communications As-a-Service to Multinational Customers

RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG), a leading provider of AI-powered global enterprise cloud communications, video meetings, collaboration, and contact center solutions, today announced a next-gen communication solution for frontline workers that enhances employee- or company-owned mobile devices with walkie-talkie, voice, AI- powered video capabilities, team messaging, file sharing, and more. In the past, frontline workers have been burdened by juggling multiple devices. With RingCentral’s powerful frontline workforce solution–which now offers a new push to talk capability–frontline workers across industries like healthcare, retail, and manufacturing can use a single device to seamlessly connect and communicate with the rest of their organization.

“Frontline workers need to be given the right tools to perform their jobs with speed and precision. Without digital investments, they’re set up to work in silos,” said Srini Raghavan, chief product officer, RingCentral. “With our new Frontline Worker solution, businesses can bridge departmental gaps and empower their frontline workers with mobile-centric tools that include push to talk capabilities along with message, video, and phone so they can communicate with their field and back office teams.”

Available as a standalone solution or add-on to RingCentral MVP® (message, video, phone), key benefits for frontline workers and businesses include:

  • Drive ROI with fewer devices and apps: This new offering with push to talk capabilities eliminates the need for frontline workers to carry multiple devices. Businesses can optimize costs by introducing bring your own device (BYOD) programs and reducing subscriptions with consolidated calling, SMS, video camera-sharing, and group messaging in one subscription.
  • Enable next-gen walkie talkie with AI-powered capabilities: Frontline workerscan instantly elevate a voice call to AI-powered video collaboration, utilizing “see what I see” technology for added context, asking for second opinions, or visually sharing their current surroundings. Workers can also leverage AI-powered live transcriptions, or if their location is too loud, AI noise reduction can make it easier to hear clearer audio.
  • Connect frontline and back office workers: RingCentral securely and reliably allows frontline workers and back office workers to easily chat via team messaging and share files to power stronger and more effective collaboration.
