RingCentral offers custom cloud migration for Mitel customersKieran Mccusker
Cloud migration for existing Mitel customers to RingCentral has never been easier since a strategic partnership was announced back in November.
The hybrid workforce
The great resignation of 2021/22 served to illustrate a disconnection between what employers expect of their workforce and the changing priorities of employees themselves. Here are two statistics that sum it up neatly:
88% of c-suite executives report they expect most employees to be in the office 3 or more days per week post-pandemic.
64% of employees say they would consider resigning if they were asked to return to the office full time.
A flexible approach to working, and workforce enablement, is essential if businesses are to retain their best talent. Of course, effectively connecting users from multiple locations is challenging for traditional on-premises communications systems. Only by moving communications to the cloud can organisations provide the mobility, scalability and accessibility necessary to enable a hybrid, work from anywhere culture.
Mitel and RingCentral
In November 2021, Mitel and RingCentral announced a strategic partnership that would see RingCentral become the exclusive UCaaS and CCaaS partner for Mitel customers. The aim was to make migrating to a cloud-based solution as effortless as possible; enabling businesses of all sizes to future proof their communications infrastructure and meet the needs of an increasingly remote workforce.
The partnership makes sense on many levels, not least of which is RingCentral’s position as an industry leader in the Gartner Quadrant for UCaaS. Ranked first in three out of four use cases in Gartner’s 2021 Critical Capabilities for UCaaS worldwide report, RingCentral is also positioned furthest to the right on the quadrant, indicating its completeness of vision.
Cloud Migration made easy
Migrating from any on-premises solution to the cloud involves some element of risk. However, this risk can be mitigated, if not eliminated, by choosing the right partner. 4Sight and RingCentral have extensive experience of moving customers from on-premises PBX systems to the cloud. The close relationship between all parties – Mitel as a provider of telecommunication solutions to thousands of UK organisations, 4Sight as a trusted, Platinum Partner and Ring Central as the CaaS provider of choice for Mitel – puts customers in a unique position to leverage best-in-class migration support.
If you currently use Mitel 6900 series handsets, migration is even easier. The 6900 series is RingCentral MVP certified and integrates seamlessly to your new cloud solution.
If you are a current Mitel customer and thinking about moving to a RingCentral UCaaS or CCaaS solution, there are also some exclusive offers available, including free phones of up to 3 months free.
