We’re recognised once again as a Leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) worldwide. This year we outpaced the market and are positioned furthest within the Leaders Quadrant for completeness of vision and ability to execute. See the full report for more details.
We believe this distinction highlights our laser focus on innovation and delivering a world-class unified communications solution. RingCentral empowers IT leaders with the ability to exceed the communications requirements of today’s rapidly evolving digital workforce. These new requirements are rapidly eroding the foothold of legacy communications solutions. According to Gartner, “By 2021, 90% of IT leaders will not purchase new premises-based UC infrastructure — up from 50% today — because future cloud UC offerings will be far ahead in terms of features, functions, portals, analytics and dashboards.”
Today’s workers are overwhelmed with the multitude of communications apps that are meant to improve collaboration yet are hindering productivity. Based on a recent survey by CITE Research, workers waste up to 60 minutes a day simply navigating between these apps. Our approach, Collaborative Communications, empowers people to work the way they want by putting collaboration at the center and enabling seamless integrations with enterprise workflows.
For RingCentral, this is about delivering a truly unified communications experience that combines messaging, calling, and meeting, and simplifies the way you communicate, share content, and manage projects. It’s also about an open platform that lets you integrate these Collaborative Communications capabilities with core business applications, giving you the ability to customise workflows and create seamless experiences for end users.
2018 so far has been a record year for RingCentral. We’ve delivered new innovations, expanded into new global markets, and seen significant growth and momentum in the mid-market and enterprise. And we’re only getting started. Click To Tweet
Collaborative Communications also enables seamless business workflows across workplace apps. Today, RingCentral offers over 150 published integrations with popular business applications via the RingCentral app gallery, with over 14,000 developers creating custom apps.
Our efforts are bearing fruit and reflected in our Q2 2018 earnings results, with total revenue growing 34% year-over-year. Our mid-market and enterprise customer segments continued to grow by 80% year-over-year and are now a $237 million business. Our channel business also grew 100% year-over-year to $139 million.

I want to thank our global customers, partners, and employees for their support and commitment to RingCentral and look forward to more great things to come.
