The proposed acquisition is Zoom’s latest attempt to expand its offerings. In the past year, the video conferencing software has added several office collaboration products, a cloud phone system, and an all-in-one home communications appliance.
The acquisition of Five9 — which has amassed over 2,000 customers worldwide including Citrix and Under Armour and processes over 7 billion minutes of calls annually — will help Zoom enter the “$24 billion” market for contact centers, the company said.
“We are continuously looking for ways to enhance our platform, and the addition of Five9 is a natural fit that will deliver even more happiness and value to our customers,” said Eric S. Yuan, founder and chief executive of Zoom, in a statement.
Joining forces will offer both firms “significant” cross-selling opportunities in each other’s respective customer bases, the two firms said.
“Businesses spend significant resources annually on their contact centers, but still struggle to deliver a seamless experience for their customers,” said Rowan Trollope, chief executive of Five9.
“It has always been Five9’s mission to make it easy for businesses to fix that problem and engage with their customers in a more meaningful and efficient way. Joining forces with Zoom will provide Five9’s business customers access to best-of-breed solutions, particularly Zoom Phone, that will enable them to realize more value and deliver real results for their business. This, combined with Zoom’s ‘ease-of use’ philosophy and broad communication portfolio, will truly enable customers to engage via their preferred channel of choice.”
The two firms will do a joint Zoom call Monday to share more about the transaction.
Zoom acquired cloud call centre Five9 for $14.7 billion in an all-stock transaction.
The popular video conferencing app which was recently valued at $9 billion plans to broaden its product offering by integrating in-house home communications apps and cloud phone systems.
In a statement, the company said that Five9 was a natural fit for the group.
Five9’s CEO Rowan Trollope said that “businesses spend significant resources annually on their contact centers, but still struggle to deliver a seamless experience for their customers.”
That’s where the company can make a difference, by making it easier for companies to engage with their customers in a meaningful and efficient way.
Zoom Meetings is perhaps the world’s most-used web conferencing platform. Launched in 2013, Zoom had 400,000 people sign up within the first month. By the end of its first year of operations, Zoom had amassed 200 million meeting minutes.
