In March, Vonage announced it was acquiring the UCaaS and collaborative services provider for $25.3 million. SimpleSignal serves more than 2,000 SMBs.
“The acquisition of SimpleSignal deepens Vonage’s penetration in UCaaS and demonstrates our commitment to execute on our organic and inorganic growth strategy in the sector,” said Alan Masarek, Vonage’s CEO. “It meaningfully broadens our already strong channel market coverage and provides the company with access to new channel partnerships and geographies, and the ability to further nurture existing relationships.”
Key management changes include:
“In less than 18 months, Vonage has become the fastest-growing provider of cloud communications in the SMB market,” Gilbert said. “Becoming a part of Vonage will instantly put SimpleSignal at the forefront of growth in this market, and I couldn’t be more pleased that SimpleSignal’s employees, customers and partners will now benefit from the strength and scale of Vonage.”
