Frontline workers can now enjoy a familiar walkie-talkie experience on their smartphones or multi-modal devices without the need to carry a cumbersome two-way radio. They can use a single device to seamlessly connect and communicate with their frontline and desk-based teams. It works seamlessly in any location with Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity.
The RingCentral solution for frontline workers begins at $7/user/month, and comes with free access to AI-powered video capabilities such as live transcriptions, background noise reduction, rear view mobile camera sharing, unlimited file and image sharing, and many more mobile-first tools that help your frontline teams collaborate faster.
The RingCentral solution for frontline workers enables voice communication at the push of a button. However, some conversations demand visual context to solve the problem at hand. With RingCentral, customers enjoy push to talk with integrated AI-powered video functionality in one app for free! For example, frontline workers can instantly switch from push to talk communication to mobile camera sharing to get a 2nd opinion on a breakdown on the assembly line, a quick share of a patient’s medical scan X-rays or sharing live footage of a construction site demolition.

The RingCentral solution for frontline workers is currently available in the USA, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, and all the various European countries where we sell RingCentral directly.
The RingCentral solution for frontline workers may be right for you if any of the following apply to your frontline teams:
  • Your frontline workers are required to carry multiple devices for their tasks. This causes device fatigue and slows workflows as these staff often need to use their hands for work on the job.
  • Your frontline teams need to pause their workflows to answer calls or make/listen to announcements on paging devices or overhead speakers. 
  • Your staff need to get the attention of their teammates who are not physically or geographically close to them.  Sometimes they need the attention of large groups to coordinate a task.
  • Your office based staff need a way to communicate in real time to  your frontline staff - not only through voice but ideally with other collaboration tools (video, group messaging) too. 
  • Your frontline teams are unable to communicate with each other in areas with limited radio signals. 
  • If your frontline teams are lifting something heavy in a warehouse, or on the go as a medical professional where time is of the essence, they need auto-play voice, so they can focus on the job at hand while listening.
  • Emergency situations require cross–agency and–organisation coordination and communication. If your frontline teams operate in harsh environments where conditions may not always be optimal, such as hazardous and accident-prone areas to places that receive limited network frequency, this can result in life-threatening scenarios without smooth communication. Hence, it’s critical to have incoming audio messages to be auto-played on the default output source.
