Is it possible to add a new contact for example name and number via the api so when a customer signs up there info is automatically added to ring central so if and when they call we have their name show on the screen?

We do have an address book API in beta which would support this functionality. If you are interested in joining this beta, please submit a Developer Support Case. Please provide a clear and detailed use-case (how you plan on using this API resource, estimated number of requests hourly, and the data you expect to have available or be able to save) for requesting access to this API resource, the name of your application, and the APP ID.

Our engineering team will review this request for viability and if approved, enable this for your specific application.

Hi Jason,

We do have the Address Book API where you could retrieve the contacts from the Personal Address Book as well as create/update new contacts. 

Since this is a Beta API, you would need to send an email to devsupport@ringcentral.com requesting the same and we could provide the necessary access to view this Beta API.
