The solution gives businesses of all sizes, particularly small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs), an agile, affordable, cloud-based offering for better collaboration and communication among their employees, customers, and suppliers–on any device, from virtually anywhere, at any time.
To support hybrid work, Portuguese employees need collaboration capabilities at the center of cloud communications. The new solution provides a unified experience across desktop and mobile for instant messaging, group collaboration, file sharing, task management, and HD video conferencing. These capabilities from RingCentral work seamlessly with the existing robust communications services of Vodafone One Net, which include call handling, logging and recording, IVR, and teleconference, thus ensuring that all communications (including mobile or landline calls) can be made on a single platform.
Henrique Fonseca, Vodafone Portugal's Business Unit director, said, “To the robust, effective, and simple Vodafone One Net solution that we have been offering to our customers for more than 10 years, we are pleased to now partner with RingCentral to leverage their collaboration capabilities. Portuguese companies will be among the first in Europe to experience the advantages of this differentiating platform, which is a real step forward in their relationship with customers and employees. The solution will accelerate their productivity with maximum agility and reliability.”
