CounterPath Announces UC Deal with Integrator

July 13, 2015

CounterPath is already a company considered among the best in the business when it comes to its over-the-top (OTT) UC solutions. Recently, the firm announced that it had signed a deal with Integrator, a firm planning to offer the Bria Softphone and Stretto Platform in Sub-Saharan Africa that aims for a long and prosperous relationship. Those close to the situation say that under the deal, Integrator has made an initial order of more than $400,000 of Bria, it’s recently improved SDK and Stretto software and services.


In total, the purchasing of software and services from CounterPath is expected to total more than $2 million over the next three years. There are also reports that the firm could purchase another $3 million over the same time period. This would mean that the total deal would be worth upwards of $5 million to CounterPath when all is said and done.

The deal between Integrator and CounterPath certainly makes a lot of sense in this day and age. Unified Communications solutions are only getting more popular as we go deeper into 2015 and beyond. Services like Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) are becoming the norm in the business world, rather than the exception for reasons that include the fact that more businesses are looking for ways to do business even when the employees aren’t working out of a central hub.

The growth in the telecom market is being reflected all over the world, but especially in the sub-saharan market. In that region, the telecom and mobile telecom markets are growing at rates of six and seven percent CAGR respectively. This growth rate is faster than any other market in the world thanks to the adoption of low cost business tools and smartphones as well as the increased rollout of high speed Internet.
