Vodafone Business Ireland and RingCentral unveil innovative hybrid work solution, facilitating seamless collaboration across devices and locations

15 May 2024

Dublin, Ireland & Belmont, Calif. – 15 May 2023 – Vodafone Business Ireland and RingCentralInc . (NYSE: RNG), a leading provider of AI-driven cloud business communications, contact centre, video, and hybrid event solutions, today announced the launch of Vodafone Business UC with RingCentral to organisations of all sizes in Ireland. Already accessible in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, and the United Kingdom, this solution enables businesses to facilitate seamless communication and collaboration for their workforces from virtually any device, anywhere, at any time. With this offering, Vodafone Business Ireland and RingCentral are empowering businesses to embrace the evolving landscape of hybrid work.

This launch coincides with great market momentum. Currently, unified communications cloud penetration in Ireland stands at 43.7%, with projected growth exceeding 80% by 2028, according to a Cavell Group report[1]. This enormous, projected uptick in cloud penetration is not surprising given that Ireland ranks among Europe's leaders in remote or hybrid work job postings, as indicated by an Indeed report. To best fuel hybrid work, Irish businesses require a resilient and secure communications solution that is flexible and easy to implement across dispersed workforces.

Vodafone Business UC with RingCentral offers robust collaboration capabilities, including team messaging, video meetings, and a feature-rich cloud based system, ensuring customers can streamline workflows and optimize workforce productivity. The solution also integrates with many popular applications, and with RingCentral’s AI-powered platform, organizations can leverage conversation intelligence and actionable insights to augment communication experiences. 

“Workplace needs are changing, and legacy voice technologies such as PSTN are sunsetting,” said John McCarthy, Head of Product & Partner for Vodafone Business Ireland. “Vodafone Business UC with RingCentral​ is a uniquely flexible communication and collaboration solution​ that will help businesses take control and become more efficient, agile and future-ready,​​ while delivering a world class connectivity and service for better customer experience.”    

"We're thrilled to deepen our collaboration with Vodafone Business as we broaden our European footprint to Ireland, delivering enterprise-grade communications to businesses of all sizes,” said Lee Williams, AVP International Service Providers, RingCentral. “Vodafone Business UC with RingCentral offers a tailored solution fostering productivity and adaptability so organizations can facilitate successful hybrid work."
