Why Toll-Free Conferencing Doesn't Pay

FreeConferenceCall.com | 6/22/2015 11:03:55 AM

Conferencing and collaboration services are big business and a growing trend. The global market forecast for audio conferencing is expected to reach $4.3B by 2015 (Statista 2014). As the sophistication and availability of smartphones, mobile apps, VoIP services and wireless plans improve, the means by which employees join conferences is rapidly changing and has a dramatic effect on the value of toll-free phone numbers. By 2015, there will be an estimated 1.3 billion mobile workers worldwide.

How a Cloud Phone System Benefits Multi-Site Businesses

RingCentral | 6/16/2015 4:50:35 PM

Whether you have a second location across town or 100 sites spread across the country, seamless connectivity across all your locations delivers a number of benefits. Unfortunately, conventional, onsite PBX systems are not well-suited to businesses with multiple locations. They not only lack key features such as direct extension-dialing and online meetings but also require complex and costly telco connectivity between sites.

This white paper explains the advantages of a cloud phone system, which include:

. Eliminating investment in PBX hardware/software at multiple locations
. Removing the need for PBX-trained IT professionals or service vendors at each site
. Facilitating direct transfers and extension-dialing between business locations

Calculating the Real Cost of a Business Phone System

RingCentral | 6/16/2015 4:47:51 PM

The biggest problems with on-premise PBX systems revolve around manageability, flexibility, and cost. When replacing a legacy system, the basic cost of getting a new system up and running may be the most conspicuous concern. But it pays to look beyond the obvious hard costs of a new PBX / IP PBX and phones.

This analysis reveals the many hidden costs of an on-premise phone system, which can total more than the large initial capital expense of the basic hardware. Things to look for when assessing total cost of ownership include:

. PBX upgrades, licensing, and maintenance, including the need for trained resources
. Telecom charges for PRIs, T1s, local long distance, and 800 charges
. Standalone services such as eFax, audio conferencing, and web meetings
. Connecting locations with MPLS, PSTN, or other business exchange lines

This white paper also describes how a cloud phone system like RingCentral can eliminate many of these hard costs, and decrease the burdens and management complexity that challenge IT resources. In fact, for many companies, the cost savings can amount to 30% to 70% or even higher compared with an on-premise PBX system.

Connecting for the Way Government Works Today

RingCentral | 6/16/2015 4:30:20 PM

Government work today increasingly doesn’t conform to being performed only in an office and only on an 8-to-5, Monday-through-Friday schedule. Constituents expect the public sector to match the higher levels of service delivery and responsiveness they experience from the private sector. Government employees expect to work and communicate easily any time, from anywhere, using whatever device is at hand. As a result many governments are recognizing these changing communication needs can’t be met by traditional, on-premises telephone systems.

This white paper explores how public organizations of all sizes and types are considering cloud-based communications solutions to improve their efficiency,
effectiveness and agility.

Cloud Communications: Creating a New Paradigm for Teaching and Learning

RingCentral | 6/16/2015 4:27:29 PM

In the new student-centered and learner-driven educational model, the teacher no longer stands in front of the room and imparts information. Instead, the 21st century teacher is a facilitator, guide, and coach for inquiry-based instructional techniques, made possible through a variety of technology trends in the K-12 education environment.

This paper discusses four of those trends—BYOD, cloud computing, social media, and videoconferencing—and briefly outlines how a cloud-based communications platform offers an efficient and cost-effective means for anytime, anywhere collaboration and communication, while at the same time creating a new paradigm for teaching and learning.

How a cloud phone system uniquely supports your mobile workforce

RingCentral | 6/16/2015 4:20:05 PM

How a cloud phone system uniquely supports your mobile workforce Mobility and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) have transformed the idea of a 9-to-5 workplace. Employees now check their email first thing in the morning and expect to stay connected whenever and wherever they go throughout the day.

Attempting to integrate a mobile workforce into a conventional PBX phone system typically yields less-than-optimal results. These aging architectures were simply never designed to serve workers using devices not directly connected to the building wiring and on-premise hardware. With a cloud phone system like RingCentral Office® that incorporates an enterprise-class mobile app, you can:

• Ensure rapid communications
• Enable users to join audio conferences and web meetings from anywhere
• Cut costs and gain visibility in BYOD billing
• Assure rapid disaster recovery
• Protect valuable corporate data against loss from mobile devices

How to Reduce Your Conferencing Bill Dramatically While Keeping Services the Same

FreeConferenceCall.com | 6/15/2015 5:31:11 PM

Every market has more potential for greater efficiencies than most people recognize. However, most people and organizations buy at or around average prices. It is true in consumer purchases (e.g., think about how online buying has democratized the purchase price for the most common items) and in business (e.g., most organizations buy commodity items at or around the same price as their peers). Similarly, the conferencing services market holds the potential for greater efficiencies. For example, there is the potential to buy like services at lower prices. In fact, in North America, the market generated approximately 113 billion minutes of audio conferencing in 2014, and approximately 8% of those minutes were provided to users at no cost! Of the estimated 107 million active account holders in North America, how is it that 8.5 million users pay nothing? The logical expectation may be that these free account holders are using services that skimp on quality or features. Yet, you may be surprised that this is not necessarily the case.

This paper explores the rise of free conferencing into the enterprise market and how it is rapidly being used along with, or as a replacement for traditional fee-based services. We will reveal
where the market has been, where it is headed, and explore strategies you and your organization can use to cut conferencing costs dramatically while maintaining service-level parity.

Telecom Testing & Monitoring TelcoAlert Ensures Businesses Can Answer the Call

TelcoAlert | 6/8/2015 11:05:16 AM

Every business seems to have a tale to tell about how its phone service or IVR system failed, and no one at the organization was aware of the problem for hours. Such outages might seem like a blip in the grand scheme of things, but the fact is that even a 30-minute failure can add up to big losses for a business.
