RingCentral has named ConvergeOne a platinum partner.

The UCaaS provider will offer exclusive training and support to the IT services provider, which will function as a “strategic” partner and sell RingCentral’s cloud communications, collaboration and contact center products.

John Lyons, ConvergeOne’s field organization president, said his company has attained a net promoter score (NPS) of 70. He said ConvergeOne’s cloud and managed services fit well with RingCentral’s UC and collaboration technologies.

“We are delighted to continue to build upon our strategic partnership with RingCentral by joining its Platinum Partner Program,” Lyons said.

“ConvergeOne understands the changing market dynamics from the world of legacy on-premises systems to the new cloud solutions, and we’re thrilled they have selected RingCentral as their strategic unified communications as a service (UCaaS) solutions partner,” said Zane Long, RingCentral’s senior vice president of global channel sales at RingCentral. “Together with ConvergeOne, we look forward to helping the customers that are interested in transforming their companies and leveraging the cloud solutions for their business.”
