This new integrated offering gives businesses the most innovative contact center service combined with the award-winning RingCentral Office solution. RingCentral Contact Center is disruptive with its uniquely packaged simple all-inclusive pricing model, compared to other expensive a la carte offerings within the industry.

The new contact center solution is integrated with RingCentral Office, enabling greater flexibility and speed to communicate between call center personnel and employees in the rest of the business. It gives contact center agents the ability to engage customers through multiple channels including: voice, email, chat, and SMS. Administrators have the ability to set up multi-channel, skills-based routing, and advanced IVR capabilities with a visual call flow editor. The real-time reporting capabilities also help administrators monitor key metrics and improve call center efficiencies or identify areas for business performance improvement.
