SummaryThis article provides information about RingCentral's Cost Center Management. RingCentral's Cost Center Management enables account Administrators to assign purchases of RingCentral services to a Department or an individual based on Cost Center Codes, which will help companies manage and monitor the expenses for cost control and budget planning.


Cost Center Management - Overview


RingCentral's Cost Center Management allows Administrators to create a hierarchical structure of billing codes that reflect their organization by department and/or location as well as RingCentral account, and allocate incurred expenses across that structure as a way to better understand and assign cost.

IMPORTANT: This feature is disabled by default. You need to contact your RingCentral Account Manager to have this feature enabled on your RingCentral account.


Features & Benefits

• Flexible in billing management; create code on the fly; change or reassign codes anytime. 

• Save time with easy bulk upload with predefined codes.


• A nationwide car dealer has multiple offices. Each regional location is responsible for its profits and expenses. The company has set up cost center codes for each department in each location to track expenses.
