Atos Partners with RingCentral for UCaaS

Atos, a provider of digital transformation, will add RingCentral as its preferred provider of unified communications as a service (UCaaS) solutions.

Atos and RingCentral will enter into a system integrator relationship and will introduce a co-branded UCaaS solution. The co-branded solution will be a key part of Atos' Digital Workplace, complementing its existing OpenScape UC solutions.

"We are excited to welcome Atos as our first global systems integrations partner, creating opportunities for RingCentral to provide our global cloud communications platform to large, marquee customers in Atos' digital transformation practice," said Vlad Shmunis, founder, chairman and CEO of RingCentral, in a statement. "Atos provides a new dimension of long-term growth as we continue to lead the charge in UC-to-UCaaS transformation with our unwavering commitment to innovation and strong culture of strategic partnerships."

"RingCentral's world-class communications platform combined with Atos' proven leadership in digital workplace solutions provides our customers the opportunity to further streamline their digital transformation projects across all lines of business IT," said Elie Girard, CEO of Atos, in a statement. "With an Atos installed base ranging across large enterprises and governmental agencies, we are excited about the potential of the new strategic partnership."

Along with this strategic partnership, RingCentral will acquire some intellectual property from Atos, including several patents.
