RingCentral Refreshes Glip Mobile Apps

RingCentral has added new iOS and Android apps for its team messaging platform, RingCentral Glip, to enhance productivity and collaboration in the workplace.

Today more than ever, businesses have distributed workforces, working across regions, time zones and platforms. As more millennials enter the workforce and workers become more mobile, companies are finding that their workforces want real-time, collaborative tools to communicate. RingCentral Glip is designed to enable team collaboration and productivity, and works in concert with RingCentral’s apps to let users organize a conference call, have an online meeting, share files and more.

Seamlessly integrated with RingCentral Office, available via channel partners, RingCentral Glip helps people be just as productive outside the office as at their desks. RingCentral has rebuilt the Glip mobile experience from the ground up to be more intuitive with fresh design. The RingCentral Glip Android and iOS apps are faster and higher performing than ever before, whether a user is on a smartphone or tablet. Designed to enable greater engagement, the apps work in concert with RingCentral’s apps to make it easy to organize a conference call or an online meeting. RingCentral Glip users can send rich messages that can include links, files, or task assignments, while retaining the option of switching to a call or a video call for a more in-depth conversation.

“RingCentral is raising the bar on workplace productivity, transforming how people communicate and get work done from a single, collaborative communications hub,” said Marco Casalaina, vice president of applications at RingCentral. “To better empower today’s mobile workforce, we’ve enhanced RingCentral Glip’s rich capabilities for the mobile platforms our customers depend on. Now, with enhanced speed, reliability, and collaboration functionality, our customers can be more productive no matter which mobile devices they choose to work from.
