This represents a 3 billion dollar global opportunity. Telesales and Inside Sales teams are adapting Sales Acceleration Technology which is a new 12 billion dollar opportunity and growing very fast. This fresh funding would catalyse our larger participation in both of these fantastic market opportunities."

The funds will be used to expand into the US market, expand offerings in ' Cloud Contact Center ' and 'Sales Acceleration Technology' space, and platform investments into stronger ISV relations in the Enterprise Contact Center Software market.
