In cloud communications, change is constant. This highly competitive spaces forces providers to evolve or disappear -- it is that simple. This notion is serving as impetus for a market chock full of mergers and acquisitions, as service providers seek to create complete portfolios fit to support customer demands.

Recently, Evolve IP announced the acquisition of thevoicefactory LTD, one of the U.K.’s prominent voice providers. The addition helps further Evolve’s market strategy and opens doors to a larger distribution channel, client base and improved access to a number of vertical markets.

"We are delighted to welcome thevoicefactory, their associates, and its worldwide partner community to the Evolve IP family," said Guy Fardone, Chief Executive Officer and Founding Partner of Evolve IP.  "Combining Evolve IP's intellectual property and OneCloud™ capabilities with thevoicefactory's reseller channel will help us expand into new markets even faster and provide incredible growth opportunities for our suite of award-winning, analyst-acclaimed cloud services."

thevoicefactory brings presence in more than 20 countries, with more than 65,000 users to the table through its private label program. Now, Evolve IP will work with thevoicefactory’s 35 resellers to expand presence of a number of different telephony services like web-based call management, omnichannel contact center, single-sign-on identity and access management. There’s more, as the acquisition also delivers access to Evolve’s team of custom app developers.  

"We are very excited to be joining Evolve IP and thrilled with the opportunities it provides for our associates and partners," said Paul Harrison, CEO of thevoicefactory. "Evolve IP has developed significant intellectual property and a sophisticated service delivery platform that will be of great benefit to our partners and their clients. Additionally, their world-class, compliant OneCloud platform will provide a fantastic platform for clients to add new services. We're looking forward to immediately contributing to Evolve IP's international growth."

Mergers and acquisitions are the reality of the modern communications landscape. As providers push for position, it is unclear which will claim the summit. One thing is clear; those resting on laurels likely will not leave base camp.
