Location: Centennial, CO
RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE:RNG) is a leading provider of global enterprise cloud communications and collaboration solutions. More flexible and cost-effective than legacy on-premises systems, RingCentral empowers today's mobile and distributed workforce to communicate, collaborate, and connect from anywhere, on any device. RingCentral unifies voice, video, team messaging and collaboration, conferencing, online meetings, and integrated contact center solutions.

Traditionally, business communications comprised a series of inflexible, expensive, and disparate systems: on-premises hardware–based private branch exchanges, or PBX systems, which are still prevalent in businesses today. The emergence of the cloud and SaaS business models, combined with the proliferation of smartphones and tablets, as well as the corresponding new paradigms in user experiences, has revolutionized how people communicate. RingCentral is leading the charge in cloud-based communications.
RingCentral is the largest and fastest-growing pure-play provider in this space, with a market capitalization of over $12 billion. With a $850 million run rate, RingCentral is projected to reach $1 billion by 2020. Examples of Wall Street analyst quotes after recent earnings:
- Jeffries: "Firing on all cylinders."
- Morgan Stanley: "Near flawless execution. Succeeding where others are stumbling."
- Bank of America-Merrill Lynch: "Enterprise traction still in the early innings; accelerating subscription revenues."
