Avaya partners with RingCentral

Strategic partnership October 4th, 2019, 10:31 am
UCC specialist Avaya will work with competitor Ring Central to advance its cloud business. As part of the partnership, Ring Central will acquire a stake in Avaya.
In April of this year, the rumor circulated that Mitel wanted to take over Avaya - Avaya is now announcing a strategic partnership with RingCentral, a UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) provider from the USA.
The aim is to introduce the Avaya Cloud Office (ACO) in the first quarter of next year. The solution is to combine the UCaaS platform from RingCentral with the offerings from Avaya. In addition, RingCentral will acquire a $ 500 million stake in Avaya. 125 million dollars will flow into a preferential participation, the rest is an advance for future payments and licensing rights.
Background: RingCentral was founded in 1999 and is headquartered in Belmont, California. RingCentral went public in 2013 and is targeting sales of $ 1 billion in fiscal 2020. In addition to its home market, RingCentral is active in Australia and Canada; in Europe, the company markets its products in France, Ireland, the Netherlands and Great Britain. A few months ago, the company also signed an EMEA-wide contract with Westcon-Comstor - the distributor had announced that it would also offer the cloud PBX in Germany. Westcon-Comstor also markets Avaya's UCC products and is one of the master agents for the Avaya cloud.
