RingCentral, a provider of cloud communications, collaboration, and contact center solutions, and Westcon, a value-added technology distributor, have partnered to bring its cloud communications solutions to channel partners.

Westcon will act as a master agent for RingCentral initially in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
