Why customers choose Zoom over RingCentral

Hybrid work relies on a flexible, technology-enabled workplace built on trust. Zoom delivers a modern productivity platform that is so much more than just a UCaaS solution. Compared to RingCentral’s voice-first platform, you can do more with Zoom while keeping voice and video conferencing at its core; collaborate, create, and communicate all in a single unified experience.

Reliable technology, flexibility, and trust are essential in the hybrid workspace, but they’re also essential for your communications. With Zoom’s unified communications platform, you can enjoy the simplicity, reliability, and cutting-edge features you’ve been looking for across all of your communications solutions. But what makes Zoom better than other providers? We’re so glad you asked!
