Leading Enterprise Unified Communications and Hosted PBX provider acquires acclaimed Audio and Web Conferencing vendor as part of growth strategy.OREM, UT – June 29, 2015
Jive Communications, a leading Cloud communications provider, announced today the acquisition of audio and web conference service vendor, Speek, based in Dulles, Virginia. Financials were not disclosed.
Speek was founded in June 2012 by John Bracken, Andy Powers, and Danny Boice. Speek’s platform allows users to make visual conference calls and share their screen using a simple unique Web URL rather than PIN numbers, dial in codes, or downloads.
Jive will incorporate Speek’s technology into the existing Jive Cloud architecture. The move also offers existing Speek customers access to a more robust communications suite and expansive support teams designed to improve customer experience.
“We’re very excited to add Speek’s innovative conferencing technology to Jive’s business communications portfolio,” said John Pope, CEO of Jive. “As we expand our cloud communications offering, we look for lightweight, user-friendly, game-changing applications that engage the enterprise. In the world of conferencing, Speek is that type of product.”
“Our team has worked extremely hard over the last three years to build a best-of-breed meeting service,” said Speek CEO, John Bracken. “We are excited to join forces with Jive Communications and integrate with Jive’s innovative hosted voice and video solutions.”
District Capital Partners acted as exclusive financial advisor to Speek.
