HOLMDEL, N.J., Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vonage (NYSE: VG), a leading provider of cloud communications for business, announced today that it has been named a Visionary by Gartner®, Inc. in the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service, Worldwide1
Vonage has built a broad suite of Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) solutions to meet the growing communications needs of businesses of all sizes, including the ability to deploy large customers with QoS guarantees offering them robust Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) functionality; strong project management with its award-winning proprietary backoffice account management platform Zeus; and customer support capabilities. The Company has successfully integrated multiple acquisitions and is focused on innovation to drive the future of cloud communications with its recently-acquired global Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) company, Nexmo.
"We believe to be included in the Visionaries quadrant is a testament to Vonage's vision to become the clear leader in cloud communications," said Alan Masarek, Vonage Chief Executive Officer. "By leveraging corporate assets, such as our nearly iconic brand, strong cash flows and deep expertise in cloud communications, we are accelerating the growth of Vonage Business and creating a powerful value proposition for our customers – one that offers end-to-end integration of business communications for a better customer experience and deeper customer relationships."
Mr. Masarek continued, "Vonage's UCaaS solutions not only enable greater mobility, enhanced productivity and internal collaboration among an enterprise's employees, but the addition of CPaaS capabilities enables companies to stay more closely connected to their customers. With relevant communication in real time, on any device and using whatever method customers choose - text, chat, social media or voice - a complete integration of the entire business communications value chain is where our vision for the future lies. This vision will be enabled by the fusion of UCaaS and CPaaS, resulting in better business outcomes for our customers."
This year's Magic Quadrant evaluated 16 UC solutions providers. Vonage was recognized for its "completeness of vision" and "ability to execute" on that vision.
