The acquisition of Unwire Communication makes us the undisputed CPaaS leader in the Nordic region, a region that leads the world in digitisation and customer engagement. This acquisition is a natural next step for CLX following our growth strategy to become the global CPaaS leader”, said Anders Olin, Chief Operating Officer, CLX Communications
Jens Søndergaard, CEO of Unwire Payments & Mobility ApS said “The acquisition of Unwire Communication by CLX is great news for our team located in Copenhagen and our customers. The acquisition will give our people an opportunity to grow professionally within a large global organisation and will guarantee our customers continuance of the service they have become used to. This transaction also allows Unwire Payments & Mobility to focus exclusively on mobile payments going forward.“
“We will run the acquired business as a stand-alone entity leveraging the CLX brand for the foreseeable future thus allowing for ‘business-as-usual’ operations from both a customer and staff perspective”, continued Anders Olin.
The acquisition adds more than 300 enterprise customers and further strengthens CLX’s global Tier-1 Super Network which can be leveraged across its entire global enterprise customer base to optimise quality and further improve CLX’s cost leadership position.
