CEO’s Perspective

The market has a highly de-centralised competitive landscape – new entrants are still offering cloud services and are facing a quick exit due to difficulties in sustaining themselves.
The EMEA market is in the growth stage, and is in a similar position as the North American market .. years ago.
Multi-channel interface (one interface for all communication mediums) is witnessing increasing demand as a go-to model for businesses looking to enhance customer experience.
Multi-tenancy is preferred by service providers to allow all customers to have access to the same level of technology at the same time.
EMEA customers demand more customisation, making them more discerning when compared to the early-stage U.S. customer.
