SINC and RingCentral invite you to the upcoming IT and CX Executive Dinner at Le Bernardin. This event has been designed to foster relationships among peers in the IT and Customer Experience communities and will feature an educational component, open discussions on progressing IT & customer experience strategy, plus delicious food and wine.

Why attend
We carry smart devices with us every day, but most companies are trying to integrate these smart devices with a dumb backend. A backend that they are being encouraged to maintain by the cartels with a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. This creaking and aging infrastructure is preventing companies from treating their communications engagements (employee, customer, and social) equally. Join us in this open discussion as we cover this and other key industry topics and how the latest trends impact your business.
