Introducing Unify Video: Integrated video meetings & team messaging

Our lives have dramatically changed in the last  12 months. Working from home, virtual meetings, and longer work hours have become the new normal. The pressures of our professional and personal lives have increased while we also try to keep our minds and bodies healthy.

We’re no longer able to enjoy casual conversations by the water cooler, side-by-side chats while walking from one conference room to another, or team lunches that helped us catch up with our colleagues and build corporate culture. Instead, we need to jump from one meeting to the next, right on our computer screens.

Everyone is evidently working more than they used to, but it begs the question: are people getting real work done? At Atos, we saw an opportunity to reimagine meetings for a new era.

Meet smarter with Unify Video by RingCentral

We’re excited to announce the launch of Unify Video by RingCentral, an unlimited, cybersecure, easy-to-use app that offers high-quality video and audio conferencing, seamlessly integrated with team messaging, file sharing, contact, task, and calendar management — resulting in a Smart Video Meetings™ experience.

Today’s employees work in hybrid environments—any combination of office, home, and anywhere in between. Unify Video by RingCentral is designed to drive collaboration no matter where employees work from.

Let’s look at its two primary capabilities.

Team messaging

Built-in team messaging allows you to chat with colleagues and external parties, share files with unlimited cloud storage, create teams, events, tasks, notes, and much more.

Unify Video comes with a powerful range of other messaging features. For example, you can choose from an entire menu of emoji to respond to messages and provide clearer sentiment to your own messages with the format message toolbar. And when messages need to escalate into meetings, you can easily start a video call with a single click.

Video meetings

Meetings shouldn’t be limited to a certain number of minutes. That’s why Unify Video allows you to run HD video meetings with up to 200 attendees and an incredible 24-hour time limit.

Participants can join video meetings directly through their browser without requiring any downloads and can seamlessly move between PC to smartphone or tablet  (and vice versa) with a single click.

Attendees will also enjoy AI-enabled features such as background noise reduction, virtual backgrounds, and closed captioning (live on June 2021). Video meetings are backed by RingCentral’s carrier-grade security and reliability, ensuring that only the right participants can join your meetings.

Award-winning open platform

Their APIs allow Atos customers and partners to integrate Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) capabilities into a software stack that fits their specific needs. For example:

  • Salesforce: A new dashboard leverages Unify Video by RingCentral’s integration with Salesforce to provide managers with better insights on how their teams use video call dispositions within Salesforce.

All 5k custom integrations (and 250+ plug and play integrations) are available to Unify Video customers on activation. We’re thrilled to offer a new way for your teams to communicate and collaborate.
