RingCentral Expands to Germany

RingCentral, a provider of cloud communications, collaboration, and contact center solutions, has made its unified communications platform, including team messaging, video meetings, and cloud phone system, available in Germany with a new datacenter in Frankfurt and a new office in Hamburg.

The new datacenter will give users access to local phone numbers and emergency services, local data storage, the ability to register endpoints in-country, and all team messaging, voicemails, audio and video recordings, call logs, faxes, and analytics data will be stored locally.

"We've always been focused on helping businesses modernize communications with the cloud solutions that enable their workforce to be productive regardless of their location. The current environment has accelerated the need for a solution that is easy to use, scalable, trusted, and secure," said Ashu Varshney, senior vice president of service operations and security at RingCentral, in a statement. "We are excited to begin offering our customers in Germany a unified communications solution enabling them to communicate and collaborate seamlessly regardless of their industry or location."
