As businesses adjust to remote and hybrid work models, communication and collaboration tools become even more critical to success. In this setting, unified communications as a service, or UCaaS, enables employees to communicate from any location and any device. It encompasses various communication methods, including voice, video, text, messaging and social media, and is designed to be both cost- and labor-efficient.

RingCentral, which offers enterprise-grade cloud communications, video conferencing and contact center solutions, touts itself as the largest and fastest growing pure-play UCaaS vendor. This week, RingCentral announced two important partnerships—one with AWS, the other with Avaya. Let's dive into those announcements and explore what they mean for RingCentral.

Amazon Web Services answers the call

RingCentral has entered into a strategic collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help companies expedite their cloud implementations and transform their customer and employee communications. Under this multi-year partnership, AWS will provide its customers with access to RingCentral MVP (Message Video Phone) and RingCentral Contact Center—unified communications platforms that integrate team messaging and video meetings with a top-performing cloud-based phone system. AWS will also provide customer access to RingCentral's Contact Center solution.

"This announcement with AWS marks the beginning of an important collaboration for RingCentral, whereby we will work together to deliver technologies and innovations that Improve business communications for today's hybrid workforce of both knowledge workers and front liners," said Mo Katibeh, president and chief operating officer at RingCentral. He went on to say that the partnership will match RingCentral's business communication service with "the unmatched security, compute power, data residency and privacy of AWS."

Avaya Cloud Office

Meanwhile, RingCentral and Avaya have extended their multi-year partnership, which now includes minimum seat commitments and a better-aligned incentive structure to accelerate migration to Avaya Cloud Office (ACO). The deal benefits RingCentral because Avaya will be compensated only as ACO seats are sold, with no commissions needing to be prepaid by RingCentral.

The terms of the expanded agreement aim to unlock further opportunities for RingCentral and Avaya to maximize customer value. The partnership has also expanded to include additional go-to-market models that enable Avaya to sell ACO directly to its installed base.

ACO allows companies to connect their office, remote and mobile workers to a single system so they can collaborate from anywhere on any device—without needing to switch back and forth between platforms to get things done. More than 200 third-party apps such as Jira, Marketo and PagerDuty are pre-integrated to help achieve this.

ACO is available in 15 billing countries and can be extended to more than 40 countries through the Global Office feature. The system provides an all-in-one calling, meeting and messaging solution with incoming call numbers (local or toll-free) for over 100 different countries. Operationally, this allows for cross-border communication with employees and customers regardless of device and on a single bill.

The two companies also said that they plan to make additional investments to further differentiate ACO and expand its integration with other Avaya products.

Wall Street's reaction and RingCentral’s optimism

These two important partnership deals on top of a quarterly earnings announcement made for a wild ride this week for RingCentral this week. After the AWS announcement on Wednesday, the stock got a bump—up roughly 7%. However, it then dropped around 20 % after the company provided guidance for 2023 that missed Wall Street’s growth expectations. Avaya's Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing this week likely added to the mixed results for RingCentral, although the two companies seemed to have reached a solid resolution despite Avaya’s restructuring.

Vlad Shmunis, RingCentral's founder, chairman and CEO, explained why he is not worried: "As part of its recapitalization, Avaya is emerging stronger and better positioned to migrate the world's largest on-premises installed base to Avaya Cloud Office by RingCentral, the best UCaaS destination for every Avaya Unified Communications customer."

Shumis was confident in this week's earnings call, stating, “We are in a select category of SaaS companies with over $2 billion of recurring revenue, and our Q4 results reflect our ability to deliver healthy growth and increasing profitability as we continue to scale,” he said. “We are executing well in the current environment given our product leadership, which provides customers with the market's leading UCaaS platform, as well as an integrated CCaaS solution.” (CCaaS means “contact center as a service.”)

Cloudy and mostly sunny outlook ahead

Providing cloud-based communication and collaboration tools to workforces will continue to be a priority for many companies. Employees increasingly demand flexibility and are willing to trade jobs to work for companies that offer it. At the same time, employers benefit from supporting remote work by accessing a wider talent pool. Ultimately, with the cloud's reliability and scalability, employees and customers can collaborate in new ways, empowering a more diverse workforce from nearly anywhere with minimal operational lift.

RingCentral benefits from this trend because it is the market leader in the highly fragmented UCaaS space, where it continues to grow. With the help of channel partnerships like the ones announced this week, RingCentral continues to expand beyond its initial successes in the small and medium business market to serve more and more larger companies.

Final message

RingCentral continues to lead in this space but will need to stay competitive and transparent with its pricing. This is particularly relevant because last year the company changed its SMS overage charges in response to changes in FCC guidelines. In addition, while its videoconferencing features are robust, many of the company's bells-and-whistles features are reserved for higher-paying customers—but that’s not always conveyed clearly. To take one example, RingCentral needs to clarify its webinar pricing at higher attendance levels.

The new partnership with AWS and the now more favorable relationship with Avaya support RingCentral’s strong positioning to execute and deliver healthy growth. However, there is no doubt that 2023 will see many customers that are wary about economic conditions shop around for better deals as they try to reduce costs and the number of vendors they must deal with. Additionally, per-seat pricing models may suffer a bit in larger enterprises that have pink-slipped a significant number of staff.

Even with these challenges—and the bumpy ride taken by its shares this week—RingCentral looks poised to make the most of its new partnerships in 2023 and beyond.

Killexams : Avaya files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for a second time

Avaya Inc., the veteran unified communications company, said this week that it’s filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for the second time in its history, while announcing a plan that will slash $2.6 billion of debt from its balance sheet.

The company’s filing in a Texas court revealed that it has agreed a deal with its creditors. It added that the restructuring plan had “overwhelming support” from more than 90% of its secured lenders.

Through the restructuring plan, it will “eliminate more than 75% of its debt,” the company said. As a result, its total liabilities will shrink from $3.4 billion now to about $800 million, allowing it to continue running its business.

Avaya said in its filing that “revenues from capex-based purchases (software license and support and hardware) have continued to decline over the past several years, consistent with industry trends and customers’ preference to shift towards cloud-based solutions.”

The situation grew worse for Avaya when its subscription business first began to slow during fiscal 2022. The company managed to raise $600 million in financing last July, but even with that funding, it was unable to turn things around.

Avaya’s bankruptcy has been an option on the table for some time. Last August, the company warned that it had “substantial doubt” about its ability to continue operating as a going concern, saying it would miss its third-quarter fiscal 2022 revenue targets by some distance.

That came after the company hired Alan Masarek (pictured) as its new chief executive officer in July. He had previously pulled Vonage America LLC from the brink of bankruptcy before going on to sell it to Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson AB.

In a statement announcing the bankruptcy, Masarek said he joined Avaya to strengthen its capital structure and realize its business transformation. “We are excited to move ahead as a well-capitalized company with one of the strongest balance sheets in our industry that includes substantial cash to invest in our own success,” he said of the plan.

Avaya was founded back in 2000 after spinning off from Lucent Technologies Inc. and debuted on the stock market later that year. In 2007 it became a private company in an $8.2 billion deal led by Silver Lake Partners and TPG Capital. That appears to be when its problems started, as it remained a private entity for a full decade until declaring bankruptcy for the first time in January 2017. After emerging from that process, it went public again at the end of the year.

The company is a major player in the unified communications technology business, and it’s also involved in networking. It started out as a provider of communications, and later, networking hardware. But for the last six years has been pushing its cloud contact center and collaboration software.

Enterprises use its software to manage their contact centers and to enable business collaboration. It has established a strategic partnership with RingCentral LLC too, with that company helping to develop and sell its cloud-based offerings. RingCentral is also a major financial backer of Avaya, having invested $500 million in the company in 2019.

Avaya’s bankruptcy highlights the challenges faced by traditional hardware firms as they pivot to selling software-based products as-a-service. It’s a slow process that involves a radical redesign of the company’s core offerings and business model, and clearly it doesn’t always work out as planned.

Hyoun Park, an analyst with Amalgam Insights, told SDxCentral that Avaya also missed a big opportunity when the COVID-19 pandemic helped to accelerate digital transformation. At the time, the collaboration and contact center markets were growing rapidly, but Avaya’s debt obligations “prevented it from executing in these areas,” he said.

Avaya said it believes it will emerge from its latest bankruptcy proceedings in a much healthier state. It said it will exit bankruptcy in 60 to 90 days as a private concern armed with a fresh $780 million in funding that will be used to invest in growing its business.

Most likely, Avaya’s debt restructuring has been in the works for some time, and it could turn out to be a smart move that sets the company up for its next phase of growth, said Liz Miller of Constellation Research Inc.

“Now, arguably, they hit send on that cloud communications strategy a few years too late,” Miller added. “But, they are closing the gap with their Avaya Experience Platform and the Avaya Cloud Office offerings. What we will be keeping an eye on is how they continue to deliver on their announced technology innovations and roadmaps.”

Analysts were divided over the future prospects for Avaya. Charles King of Pund-IT Inc. told SiliconANGLE that in addition to the fresh funding, Avaya possesses some valuable intellectual property assets too, owning more than 4,000 existing and pending technology patents.

“One interpretation of its lenders’ willingness to support the restructuring plan is that they believe Avaya can be rebuilt into a functional, profitable business again,” King said. “Alternatively, it could be that the new funding will enable Avaya to keep operating and support its existing customers and suppliers while its owners look for ways to profitably sell off its assets. Or we could see a combination of both approaches, resulting in Avaya emerging as a leaner and more focused vendor. In any case, the company’s long and strange journey doesn’t appear to be over yet.”

Rob Enderle of the Enderle Group was less convinced about Avaya’s prospects, however. He told SiliconANGLE that Avaya is one of the last surviving remnants of yesteryear’s telecommunications industry and has struggled to reinvent itself for the modern age.

“It has historically been undermarketed, and given the need to change its image from an obsolescent telecom firm to one that is more forward-looking, it continues to struggle to be relevant, which doesn’t bode well for its long-term future,” he said. “Avaya looks like a company that is running out of time.”

Killexams : Avaya files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy

Feb 14 (Reuters) - Avaya Holdings Corp (AVYA.N) has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and secured a financing of $780 million as it restructures its business, the IT firm said on Tuesday.

Avaya said upon completion of the restructuring process it will reduce its total debt by more than 75%, from nearly $3.4 billion to about $800 million.

The new capital is "expected to provide substantial liquidity to support Avaya during the process and beyond," it said.

The cloud communications company added it would continue to serve its customers and partners without interruption and expects to complete the process in 60 to 90 days.

Avaya had said there was substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern in light of a debt maturity in 2023, according to a Wall Street Journal report in December, which cited people familiar with the matter.

Earlier in September, Avaya has also announced restructuring, including job cuts, to reduce costs. Avaya's shares have fallen nearly 99% last year.

"Under our past agreement with Avaya hundreds of thousands of seats have transitioned to ACO. With this new agreement, we expect for this motion to continue and accelerate as new product integrations and sales plays will be enabled," said Vlad Shmunis, founder, chairman and CEO of RingCentral. "As part of its recapitalization, Avaya is emerging stronger and better positioned to migrate the world’s largest on-premises installed base to Avaya Cloud Office by RingCentral, the best UCaaS destination for every Avaya Unified Communications customer."

"Through our extended and expanded partnership with RingCentral, we look forward to empowering our customers in their cloud migration journeys — creating an all win situation for our customers, RingCentral, Avaya, and our channel partners."

Killexams : Avaya files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, but CEO plans a ‘transformation’

DURHAM – Avaya announced on Tuesday that it would restructure its financial situation, under which the company anticipates eliminating more than 75% of its debt and increasing liquidity in the business.

The plan required the company, and all of its U.S. subsidiaries, to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

With headquarters in Durham, and a large presence in the region, Avaya had warned in August that there was “substantial doubt” about its ability to survive.

Earlier this year, the company received notice that its stock was trading below the minimum price listing criteria of the New York Stock Exchange, and analysts again became concerned about the firm’s viability.

Now, a statement from the company says that the financial restructuring process will reduce its debt by more than 75%.  The current debt load is $3.4 billion, but after the restructuring process, the firm will carry only about $800 million in debt.

Executing this maneuver, which the company said was agreed to by “more than 90%” of its secured lenders, is expected to also strengthen the firm’s liquidity.

The bankruptcy process could occur in as little as 60 days.

Tech firm Avaya warns ‘substantial doubt’ about ability to survive; layoffs loom

CEO calls maneuver a ‘transformation’

“Strengthening Avaya’s capital structure is a critical step to fully realize our transformation, and we are excited to move ahead as a well-capitalized company with one of the strongest balance sheets in our industry that includes substantial cash to invest in our own success,” said Alan Masarek, the company’s CEO, in a statement.

Masarek joined the company in July 2022 after the firm’s longtime CEO Jim Chirico was “removed.”  Avaya also cut jobs multiple times in 2022, including in September 2022.

Along with the bankruptcy filing, Avaya completed other customary motions at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, it said in the statement.

Such motions will enable the company’s operations to continue during the process, including the payment of its workers and vendors.

To facilitate, Avaya will receive $628 million debtor-in-possession financing, it said.

And Masarek is confident about the company’s future, despite the bankruptcy filing.

“We have made significant progress pioneering an ambitious business model transformation, establishing a competitive product strategy for our subscription and cloud-delivered services and implementing operational efficiencies to better serve the Avaya ecosystem,” he said in a statement.

(Reuters) - Avaya Holdings Corp has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and secured a financing of $780 million as it restructures its business, the IT firm said on Tuesday.

Avaya said upon completion of the restructuring process it will reduce its total debt by more than 75%, from nearly $3.4 billion to about $800 million.

The new capital is "expected to provide substantial liquidity to support Avaya during the process and beyond," it said.

The cloud communications company added it would continue to serve its customers and partners without interruption and expects to complete the process in 60 to 90 days.

Avaya had said there was substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern in light of a debt maturity in 2023, according to a Wall Street Journal report in December, which cited people familiar with the matter.

Earlier in September, Avaya has also announced restructuring, including job cuts, to reduce costs. Avaya's shares have fallen nearly 99% last year.

Evercore Group is serving as financial advisor to Avaya for the process.
