RingCentral expands in Asia Pacific with new office in Australia

08 May 18

RingCentral Australia, a provider of enterprise cloud communications and collaboration solutions, is expanding their presence in Asia Pacific (APAC) with a new office in Australia.

In addition, the company has appointed Ben Swanson as APAC channel sales director.

Swanson has over 20 years of experience leading channel sales efforts across Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand for companies including Avaya and ShoreTel.

“I’m extremely excited to join RingCentral as we look to address the changing communication solutions needs of APAC businesses,” Swanson says.

“We are already seeing demand from partners and their customers. We are well-positioned to help these business customers migrate to the cloud for enhanced mobility, scalability and collaboration.”

Additional channel partners have been added to RingCentral’s ecosystem in order to capitalise on this expansion, including Dialog Information Technology, a Google Premier partner.

Its partner programme awards partners 100% commissions on all deals while providing them the opportunity to work alongside vertical and segment-specific subject-matter experts from the company.

“The demand for communications has shifted from on-premises systems to cloud solutions as businesses look for new-generation solutions to scale their operations more easily, save on costs and drive greater productivity across their organisations,” says Dialog Information Technology Google solutions national practice manager Glenn Irvine.

“Our customers are already asking for RingCentral and with this partnership, we’ll be able to provide them with a single integrated solution across voice, video, online meetings and team messaging to achieve greater business outcomes.”

RingCentral provides communications and collaboration cloud solutions for multinational companies to support globally distributed offices and mobile employees.

Its Office offering in Australia is delivered from service centres in Australia.

Local customers also benefit from direct peering with tier one local operators across the region.
