Enable RingCentral number in Slack

Team Clerk Sep 23, 2020

Is RingCentral’s Slack application not working for you? You’re not alone. Luckily, it’s easy to use Clerk to enable your RingCentral phone number in Slack.

RingCentral is the world’s #1 business communications platform. As a VoIP service provider, customers get all of the key features and benefits of a traditional business phone service - such as extensions and a dial-by-name directory - without an expensive landline. It’s completely cloud-based, enabling better company communication with employees and customers, no matter where people are located.

As workers have gone remote and companies employ people all over the world, RingCentral keeps teams connected and business operations running smoothly. With voice, video meetings, team messaging, and even a customer service center all running on one platform, accessible from a desktop or smartphone app, it’s the business phone of the future.

Ringcentral Slack

Unfortunately, for businesses looking to integrate Slack + RingCentral, the process wasn’t seamless. We consistently get inbound requests and questions from clients looking to use their RingCentral number in Slack, which is not a shock if you’ve ever tried to use the existing RingCentral for Slack application. It’s clunky, it’s slow, and it definitely doesn’t work well for SMS communication in Slack. At Clerk, you can use your Clerk account to easily connect your RingCentral phone number to your Slack. Now you can have real-time, simple SMS communication via RingCentral, the same way you would chat with a colleague in Slack.

Clerk lets you have the best of both worlds with RingCentral and Slack. You can keep just one phone number, with the voice portion running through RingCentral and the SMS through Clerk + Slack. You’ll increase efficiency, reduce app switching, and improve your business communication. Setup is easy, and you can hit the ground running in just minutes.
