More than 1,000 RingCentral partners and customers descended on San Francisco for its third annual ConnectCentral conference.

The software vendor shared information about its technology and investment strategy, while Vlad Shmunis, its founder, chairman and CEO, touted his company’s born-in-the-cloud advantage over Cisco, Avaya and Mitel.

Also, Shmunis announced that RingCentral has signed a multi-year agreement with the Golden State Warriors as a founding partner of Chase Center, the team’s new arena under construction in San Francisco, and official enterprise communications provider for the team.

“We’re excited to have this agreement,” said Joe Lacob, the Warriors’ owner/CEO. “Can’t wait to have your technology there, and to be working with you on arena infrastructure and going forward.”

Shmunis said his main message to attendees was, “We’re here for you.”

“We’ll know our road map, our products; this is our chance to get you educated,” he said. “Hopefully you’re excited about where we’re going, our vision … and it’s not a one-way street — we’re here to learn from you. This is all to learn and get feedback. This is how our road map gets formed, how we go forward … how we win.”
