RingCentral Announces General Availability of RingCX

RingCentral, a leading provider of AI-first global enterprise cloud communications, video meetings, collaboration, and contact centre solutions, announced the general availability of RingCX™, a native, AI-first contact centre with new capabilities powered by its RingSense™ AI platform.

Integrated with RingCentral MVP™, RingCX offers a disruptive combination of product, packaging, and pricing. During controlled availability, there have been more than 50 customers who have selected RingCX, including a 1,000 plus seat win from a Fortune 500 company.

RingCX offers:

  • AI-first: Leveraging the latest advances in generative AI, RingCX helps customers and contact centre employees before, during, and after interactions with real-time guidance for agents, and automated scoring and monitoring for supervisors.
  • Rich omnichannel: Seamlessly brings together voice, video and digital channels so agents can easily engage with customers in their channel of choice, with full context to the customer journey and interaction history.
  • Disruptively packaged and priced: RingCX includes voice, video, 20+ digital channels, AI summaries, and unlimited domestic inbound and outbound minutes. The offering is attractively priced at $65 per agent per month1, providing major cost savings and pricing predictability.
  • Simple to use: Includes a rich set of capabilities businesses need without the expensive bells and whistles of traditional contact centres, including voice, video, social media, SMS, email, and more – in one unified, easy to use interface.
  • Easy to deploy: Intuitive set-up gives customers the ability to get started in a matter of days, not weeks.
  • Complements RingCentral Contact Center: RingCX is a strong complement to RingCentral Contact Center™, an OEM-based solution, which is generally aimed at more complex use cases and larger deployments.

“There is a very sizable segment of the contact centre market that is resource constrained and does not have overly complex requirements. Lengthy application deployments involving unanticipated professional service costs can prevent these organizations from getting the customer interaction capabilities they need to be competitive and to effectively serve their customers,” said Sheila McGee-Smith, President and Principal Analyst of McGee-Smith Analytics. “With a robust feature set, predictable, easily understood pricing, and a simple deployment model, RingCX is well positioned to address the needs of this underserved segment of the market.”

AI-first Functionality

Embedded RingSense AI helps agents and supervisors before, during, and after every customer interaction, ensuring an optimal customer journey for smarter conversations. Capabilities include:

  • Pre-interaction: RingSense AIgives agents insights from prior customer conversations from a single pane of glass, helping improve customer service and agent effectiveness.
  • During interaction: Real-Time AI Summariesprovide automatic summaries of the interaction, helping agents significantly improve their interaction follow-up on tasks, which is where agents spend approximately 25-30% of their time.
  • Post-interaction: Post-call transcriptions, action items, and summaries improve agent effectiveness and supervisor visibility.
  • Workforce Engagement Management add-on 2 : Offers native, generative AI-based automated quality management, coaching, and conversation analytics via the RingSense AI platform. Key benefits include improving agent performance while giving supervisors visibility into every customer interaction.

“RingCX fills a gap in the market for an all-inclusive contact centre solution that has the digital channels, voice, video, and robust AI capabilities that businesses need as they transition to a new generation of contact centres that power smarter customer experiences,” said Srini Raghavan, Chief Product Officer, RingCentral. “RingCX scales with the business, allowing decision-makers to adopt capabilities and evolve their experience, on their timeline – with rapid deployment in days, not weeks or months.”

  • Balto – to add real-time agent assist capabilities.
