Technology - Virtual Roundtable

What’s the right long-term technology choice?

3rd March 2021 | 11:00am - 12:30pm GMT
With the pandemic still in full swing, we'll be connecting virtually for a while yet.

2020 has been a great year for cloud-based collaboration systems. Take it from us.

Lockdown – recently named Collins Dictionary’s word of the year – took many businesses by surprise. Larger businesses were typically slower to respond, and some had more problems adjusting to the new conditions. That frantic adaptation saw many organisations grasping at freemium or ubiquitous tools to plug the collaboration gap caused by remote working.

As we approach the end of the year, the time for last minute, quick fix and temporary solutions is far behind us. Does that mean all organisations are prepared for the era of long-term remote collaboration? No. Preparedness looks different for different organisations. The adoption of technology must be a means to an end – margin, security, employer value proposition – rather than an end in itself.

So how do companies make sure they have everything they need in place to enable employees, meet customer expectations, and guarantee future business continuity without blowing a year’s budget on one purchase?

Join RingCentral and an intimate group of IT thought leaders for a virtual discussion on how businesses can best prepare their organisations for success in the years to come. The discussion will cover businesses’ challenges and solutions, successes and lessons from the pandemic. We will also discuss the role of technology in helping businesses keep workforces connected, productive and safe in the new landscape.

Discussion Topics

Enabling employees to do their best work in a safe and cost-effective way
Meeting the expectations of employees regarding working tools and practices
