Collaboration is at the heart of every business. When you encourage your team of talented, skilled individuals to work together, your organization gets repaid in dividends.

In the modern-day workplace, many of our collaborative efforts take place digitally – and often on the cloud. File sharing, video conference calls, instant messaging, and other collaboration apps make it quick and easy to connect with our peers, partners, and clients.

In this article, we’ll take a look at five incredibly powerful collaboration tools offered by RingCentral. These tools make teamwork a total breeze, so your staff can spend less time fussing with outdated systems and unreliable tech and more time doing what they do best.

Imagine if there was an all-in-one app you could use to instant message, call, SMS, video chat, screen share, file share, manage tasks, and more. Well, the RingCentral desktop app offers just that.

This contemporary application gives you and your team the power to collaborate at the click of a button. The RingCentral desktop app offers several communication channels, which your team can use to chat with each other, clients, and guests.

Beyond communication, the app works as a project management tool, too – which is an absolute must for both in-house and remote teams. Users can create new tasks, assign tasks, schedule events, compose quick notes, and even share files. Keep on track, keep your team up-to-date, and keep your clients happy.

RingCentral desk phone

RingCentral brings the old-school desk phone into the 21st Century. As well as making traditional calls, the desk phone can do the following:

  • Quickly and easily transfer the caller to the correct team member
  • Place a caller on hold
  • Collect and replay voicemail
  • Facilitate conference calls
  • Page team members
  • Record voice calls

Voice communication is still an integral part of most businesses. And many people prefer connecting one-on-one with a customer service rep on the phone rather than through email or live chat. RingCentral ensures your team can confidently and quickly connect callers to the relevant team members to give your valued clients the best possible experience.
