About a year ago, Sangoma announced its intention to purchase Star2Star. And even though we were one of the first M&A’s in 2021, we were recognized by Channel Futures for the top merger and acquisition of 2021.
Channel Futures serves the information and communication technology (ICT) industry channel and is part of the global Informa Tech business with over 1,000 subject matter experts and colleagues, including Omdia research. Channel Futures ranked the top 24 mergers and acquisitions of 2021 in the channel, placing Sangoma first.
Sangoma’s acquisition stands out amongst the other M&A transactions as particularly strategic for the channel, because it now enables Sangoma’s channel partners to meet the needs of all customers, from SMB to enterprise, with the most comprehensive suite of cloud services available in the industry. Sangoma’s channel partners are then able to bring this full solution, all integrated together from a single cloud supplier, to their customers. Sangoma’s cloud suite includes Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), Trunking as a Service (TaaS), Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS), Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS), Video Meetings as a Service (VMaaS), Collaboration as a Service, Desktop as a Service (DaaS), and Access Control as a Service (ACaaS).
