“Aggressive yet disciplined M&A and strong organic growth have enabled Vonage to quickly become one of the most innovative business cloud communications providers in North America,” explained Ron Gherman, ICT Consultant at Frost & Sullivan. “The company acknowledged early that a programmable communications cloud that incorporates unified communications, contact centre and communications APIs could provide greater value to customers. Through pioneering technology, Vonage’s brand has become synonymous with next-generation, IP-based communications.”

Vonage is using Cloud Communications to redefine how businesses operate and communicate with each other and their own customers, developing more innovative solutions for a more meaningful end-to-end communications experience. Furthermore, Vonage is well-positioned to accelerate revenue growth due to this unique ability to deliver more holistic communications solutions through the unique combination of its business applications (Unified Communications as a Service, or UCaaS, and Contact Center as a Service, or CCaaS) and communications APIs (CPaaS).

“We are proud to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan as an Innovation Leader in the Frost Radar report for UCaaS,” said Jay Patel, Chief Product Officer at Vonage. “Innovation is the heart of communications and key to an exceptional customer and employee experience. This recognition underscores our complete commitment to helping our customers deliver a more meaningful, more emotive, more memorable experience for their employees and their own clients, empowering brands to create personalized and contextual connections for deeper engagement and more meaningful relationships.”
