PGi to acquire cloud communications provider ReadyTalk
In UC news, collaboration software provider PGi is set to acquire cloud communications provider ReadyTalk; IHS Markit report names BroadSoft as UCaaS platform market share leader.
The unified communications consolidation carousel continues to go round. Collaboration software provider Premiere Global Services Inc., or PGi, last week announced plans to acquire ReadyTalk, a cloud communications provider that offers audio, web and video conferencing.
ReadyTalk's focus on midmarket customers and carrier partners aligns with PGi's go-to-market priorities for 2017 and beyond, PGi said in a release. ReadyTalk, based in Denver, is a communications provider that offers collaboration software to more than 6,000 small and midsize businesses.
PGi is positioning itself to compete with other vendors and products, including Citrix's GoToMeeting, Cisco's WebEx and West's InterCall service. Buying ReadyTalk helps PGi grow its customer base very quickly, said Irwin Lazar, an analyst at Nemertes Research, based in Mokena, Ill.
