Wisper have announced the acquisition of the company Avencall Xivo, French leader in open source unified communication and contact centre telephony solutions.
This transaction allows the three funds (Ambition Numérique managed by Bpifrance Investissements, Sigma Gestion and InnovaFonds) to increase Wisper’s new active customer portfolio with more than 800 clients and 220,000 installed positions.
This announcement comes after its latest funding round of €12 million at the start of the year, including from historical investor Normandie Participations.
“I am delighted to associate the Avencall Xivo teams, recognized for their innovation and quality of service in the field of customer relations, telephony and unified communication in open source, with the WISPER teams,” declares Jean-Marc Gonon, Chairman of Wisper.
“The synergies created through the acquisition will enable Wisper to accelerate the development of our two companies around mobility technology and other digital needs.”
“Wisper will benefits from a substantial client base which will help us to become a key player for CIOs in both the public and private sector, in France and internationally.”
“As organizations increasingly seek to achieve their digital transformation while maintaining security, flexibility and their application base, this alliance will allow the two companies, and in particular Avencall, to open up to larger markets, both in the public and private sectors,” declares Philippe Hedde, Chairman of Avencall Xivo.
“The endorsement of Wisper is the culmination of the search for a new shareholder in connection with our businesses, carried out with our shareholders.”
