Santa Clara Unified School District Moves its Communications Infrastructure to the Cloud with RingCentral

PRESS RELEASE: RingCentral announced the addition of the Santa Clara Unified School District as a RingCentral customer. Located among major multinational high-tech companies in Silicon Valley, Santa Clara Unified School District is committed to progress, and innovative technology in education is a top priority across its 28 locations and to its nearly 2,000 district administrators, faculty, and staff members.

When district staff and teachers asked for a powerful communications solution that integrated seamlessly with Google Apps for Education, SCUSD decided to select RingCentral.

SCUSD needed to provide district administrators, faculty and staff access to the latest communication solution to empower them to communicate in any mode they choose and on any device. When they compared RingCentral to other providers, it was clear that RingCentral’s cloud solution was the best option for the district. Google Apps for Education is used districtwide – not just for email but also for basic productivity apps. Having a communications solution that is tightly integrated with Google Apps gives the staff more flexibility and efficiency in completing work and allows them to focus on providing students with a quality education.

The decision to select RingCentral was made early summer 2016, and the district required all district administrators, faculty and staff members to be up and running on RingCentral by the start of the new school year. The district was impressed with the powerful solution and capabilities of RingCentral’s Professional Services team, who ensured fast turnaround on deployment across all 28 locations in time for the first day of school.
