The Swedish UCaaS company Telavox continues its European expansion with a new acquisition in 2021, after buying Spanish Numintec in March. Telavox has now acquired ALLOcloud, a provider of advanced cloud communications and collaboration solutions in Belgium and France – unlocking two new, fast-growing markets.
Why Telavox and ALLOcloud?
The striking similarities yet valuable additions make ALLOcloud and the Telavox family of European companies a great fit. There’s a shared mission to offer businesses, service providers and operators a best-in-class UCaaS and CCaaS product.
ALLOcloud is a tech-centric and young organisation with strong technical talent, as shown by its proprietary platform. Their values – easy, economical and efficient – perfectly align with Telavox’s values: simple, fun and relevant.
What the CEOs say
“The first thing that strikes one when you meet the people at ALLOcloud is the fantastic culture of the company: open, inclusive, and driven with a strong focus on people and customers. It has led to developing several innovative cloud PBX features that we want to offer all Telavox partners and customers. ALLOcloud has taken a strong position in the Belgian market, which we hope to build upon and accelerate with the help of the Telavox platform as the market advances”, says Viktor Karlsson, founder and CEO of Telavox.
“The Nordics is one of the most advanced regions for Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) adoption, and Telavox is the undisputed leader there. ALLOcloud has successfully been offering cloud telephony and collaboration services since 2012 in Belgium and France with a strong technology focus on software integration”, says Jacques Gripekoven, CEO of ALLOcloud.
Jacques Gripekoven continues:
“Merging with Telavox is an amazing opportunity for our partners and their customers to expand their offering with one of the most advanced communication platforms in the world. We’re excited to be part of co-shaping the European market for UCaaS with this powerful alliance!”
Two promising markets
Belgium is one of the most untapped markets in Europe, with the Dutch-speaking North and French-speaking South. This will promote expansion in the French market thanks to language commonality and geographic proximity.
Likewise, the French market is six times the population of Belgium and is expected to show a similar growth pattern. As such, Telavox believes these markets have significant potential for strong growth. With the impressive achievements by ALLOcloud to date, the foundation in Belgium can act as a platform where further business can thrive.
This acquisition will also unlock an attractive opportunity to further improve the position in the French market, which is currently in a nascent stage. Therefore, this puts Telavox one step closer to becoming a European champion.
