WIRE)--Avaya (NYSE: AVYA) and RingCentral Inc. (NYSE: RNG) today announced the expansion of Avaya Cloud OfficeTM by RingCentral across Europe, with the solution now generally available in France, Ireland, and the Netherlands. In addition, the companies also announced that they have signed their first seven-figure deal with a large United Kingdom-based Government customer. This geographic expansion of Avaya Cloud Office follows the launch of the solution in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia in June and the United States in March. Since then, the solution has seen uptake continue to accelerate, with a growing number of new customers being signed across every country in which Avaya Cloud Office is available.

Cloud-based business communications company RingCentral is looking to go head to head with WebEx and GoToMeeting with its own standalone conferencing and team collaboration product. The product is called RingCentral Meetings, and according to the company, it integrates web meetings, video conferencing and team messaging in a single product. From a competitive standpoint, RingCentral's VP of product management Jose Pastor said the new platform is a replacement for disjointed legacy meeting and messaging systems, specifically WebEx and GoToMeeting. RingCentral posits that most workers toggle between apps somewhere around 10 times per hour, which equates to up to 32 days lost in workplace productivity. The company also found through its own research that workers use an average of four communications apps, while 20 percent use six or more platforms.
With the migration to more cloud-based solutions in the collaboration space, and coinciding with our new service of deploying the cloud voice platform RingCentral, it made sense to create an automation tool to quickly provision users and phones. RingCentral provides an all-in-one solution with cloud phone, videoconferencing, team messaging, contact center and other features. Our belief is we can build a tool to provision RingCentral sites quickly, efficiently and in a manner that aligns with our best practices. In order to build a RingCentral tool, the first step is to create a minimum viable product, or MVP. What this means is simple ― try to get beneficial features out quickly so that they can be tested in a production scenario.
