Pluschkell added, "Two of the other companies listed in the Major Player category have already been acquired further validating the significant growth opportunity in this market. We are excited to be one of the few independent communications platform providers and look forward to continuing to rapidly grow our customer base."
"The companies recognized in our most recent study epitomize an array of dynamic and successful platforms that are helping to quickly bring to market real time communications services that are easy to create and scalable," said Courtney Munroe, Group Vice President of Worldwide Telecommunications Research at IDC. "In less than two years Kandy has created a slick marketing platform and secured traction with large enterprises. Its key differentiator is its communications service provider DNA, which leverages its relationships with GENBAND's UC portfolio and affiliated history with mainstream service providers and software platforms."

- offer a diverse range of voice, messaging video and security services.
- provide demonstrable, reliable connectivity to telecom carriers on a global basis and local access numbers for all major metro markets.
