RingCentral and Atos Expand Partnership

Atos, a provider of digital transformation, and RingCentral, a provider of cloud communications, collaboration, and contact center solutions, have expanded their partnership with the launch of a co-branded cloud-based unified communications solution called Unify Office by RingCentral. The expanded partnership will also include Unify Office as the exclusive UCaaS offering for the 40 million users of the Atos Unify product family.

This will allow Atos to add a cloud communications solution to its portfolio. Unify Office, combined with the Atos Unify OpenScape product family and Atos Unify Cloud Contact Center offering, gives Atos' customers unique access to solutions across all major unified communications categories.

Atos will also deploy Unify Office for Atos UCC. Unify, formerly Siemens Enterprise Communications, was acquired by Atos in 2016.

"At RingCentral we've always been focused on enabling employees to be productive and collaborate from anywhere, using any device and through the modality of their choice to drive effective business outcomes," said Vlad Shmunis, founder, chairman, and CEO of RingCentral, in a statement. "By bringing Unify Office to the 40 million users of Atos Unify's family of products, we will provide organizations with the ability to accelerate digital transformation across their entire enterprises."

Atos will bring added value to RingCentral's UCaaS offering through the exclusive compatibility of the Atos Unify family of devices and services. In addition, Atos will provide fully integrated Digital Workplace offers with some of Atos' biggest technology and alliance partners. Unify Office will be the exclusive UCaaS solution offered through the Atos Unify Channel Program.

"This is a critical moment for workplace communications. Organizations are returning to their offices in a new normal and require accelerated digital transformation of their workplace environment," said Elie Girard, CEO of Atos, in a statement. "With our unique heritage in unified communications, we're excited about combining our knowledge with the market leader in UCaaS to start a new chapter for business communication solutions worldwide."
