This looks to be a strong expansion year for RingCentral, as the company is already ramping up the Avaya partnership, which closed on October 31. As part of the arrangement, the two companies are working together to develop programs to make sure Avaya’s on-premises UC customers have an easy transition to the cloud.
Automated configuration tools will be jointly developed to reduce complexities and simplify the migration. Also, the companies are collaborating to introduce a new solution built on RingCentral’s technology platform called Avaya Cloud Office (ACO). Set for a Q1 launch, ACO should start to move the needle in terms of financial contribution by the end of 2020, providing a tailwind for 2021.
Earlier today, we broke the news about the partnership between Avaya and Noble Systems.
