KX Technologies Benefits From Cloud Based Global Phone System

Using RingCentral Office

Updated: January 06, 2011

SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KX Technologies, The Science Behind Better Water, is enjoying crystal clear benefits by switching to a single cloud based global business phone system, RingCentral Office. The company has five locations in the U.S. and Singapore with more than two hundred employees. By using hosted RingCentral Office, they are better able to communicate with customers and globally within the company. Now, KX Technologies has a single business phone system worldwide, with zero capital cost. The legacy on-premise phone systems could not meet the needs of the global business without substantial capital and very expensive ongoing communication costs and specialists required to manage it.

“When we began evaluating our business phone system replacement, we were driven by a solution that would allow us to better communicate across our global organization,” said Jason Bjerke, IT manager, KX Technologies. Bjerke added, “When we tested RingCentral’s cloud-based solution, we quickly learned that we could attain a superior business phone system at a fraction of the cost compared to legacy on-premise systems. Further, compared to expensive on-premise systems, we have no limitations on where our employees are located globally, since RingCentral Office allows us to operate as if we are all in one location with zero international calling costs. We cannot say enough good things about RingCentral Office.”

Technology and innovation are at the heart of KX Technologies. The company develops new technologies and products for water and air filtration applications. They have distributors worldwide and work directly with OEM customers on new application designs and solutions. Being able to seamlessly handle business calls and respond to global customers is essential to the company.

With RingCentral Office, KX Technologies is able to efficiently manage and handle calls, and keep team members connected in and out of the office. “All company locations are now on a single business office phone system and it has improved our costs and operating efficiencies,” commented Bjerke. “For example, we no longer have to pay international dialing charges to call Singapore because we are all using the same phone system,” he said. “Also the entire executive team uses RingCentral Mobile with their iPhone to send and receive calls and faxes and manage voicemail.”

RingCentral Office (www.ringcentral.com/rcoffice) delivers the industry’s first cloud-based, self-service solution, enabling businesses to buy, provision, set up and instantly activate a complete business phone system. RingCentral Office combines a multi-extension business phone system with advanced voice and fax functionality, unlimited calling and full-featured phones that arrive pre-configured and ready for use.
